Hingorani, who competes full-time in the ARCA West as well as races in the ARCA Menards and ARCA East series for Venturini Motorsports, will drive Hattori Racing Enterprises’ No. 61 Toyota in the Aug. 27 Truck race at Milwaukee.
He will run as a teammate to HRE’s regular driver, Tyler Ankrum. Ankrum did not qualify for the series playoffs this year.
Hingorani, 16, was born and raised in Newport Beach, Calif., but his family has deep roots in India and he embraces the Indian culture and traditions.
In March, Hingorani launched his first full racing season in ARCA with Venturini Motorsports. In 22 events across the three ARCA series, Hingorani has three wins, 10 top-five and 12 top-10 finishes. He’s also won three poles.

“I am excited about the opportunity to practice with the HRE team and contribute to their goal of having both trucks at the front. I am eager to gain experience during a full practice session before my debut,” expressed Hingorani.
“We are thrilled to have Fidelity Capital joining us for the weekend, and we are excited about the upcoming debut race in the Craftsman Truck Series.”
Hingorani was suspended for one race by ARCA officials last month and was placed on probation for the remainder of the 2023 season as a result of an incident in the July 7 race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Dean Thompson and Hingorani, teammates from Venturini, were both in the lead at certain points during the race. Unfortunately, they were caught up in a crash on the final lap.
Hingorani, who had already been told to meet with ARCA officials after the race for an incident earlier with Bob Schacht, appeared to wait for Thompson to come by and then intentionally drove him off the course and into the sand pit.
Neither driver successfully completed the race as they both veered off the course.
“Sean’s brief career has demonstrated considerable promise, and we are delighted to welcome a driver of his exceptional skill to HRE,” expressed team owner Shigeaki Hattori.
“He has emerged victorious in various categories of racing vehicles, which will undoubtedly be advantageous. I believe he possesses the potential to achieve success alongside our team. We eagerly anticipate a fantastic performance in Milwaukee.”
