Greg van Alst
A native of Anderson, Indiana Greg Van Alst returns to the ARCA Menards Series scene in 2021 after running a limited ARCA Menards Series schedule in 2001.
Since his sabbatical from ARCA competition, Van Alst has become a mainstay name in the Midwest in various forms of auto racing that recently including the 2014 CRA Sportsman championship, the 2019 ARCA | CRA Super Series championship and the runner-up in the 2020 ARCA | CRA Super Series championship.
For the first time in almost two decades, Van Alst returned to the ARCA Menards Series tour in 2021 competing in eight of the scheduled 20 races.
Van Alst turned heads with an impressive third-place qualifying effort at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway and contended for the win several times throughout the season. In all, he delivered one top-five and three top-10 throughout the year – including a runner-up finish at the demanding Winchester (Ind.) Speedway.
In 2022, Van Alst returned to the ARCA Menards Series scene, where his family-owned team ran the complete schedule with one top-five and 11 top-10 finishes en route to a fifth-place finish in the championship standings.
He returned to the ARCA tour with a vengeance in 2023 and kicked off the season with a victory in the Brandt 200 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway is a triumphant achievement for an underfunded organization.
Following the victory, Van Alst competed in four other races before opting to bow out of the championship race and focus on other driving opportunities outside the series.
Van Alst made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway in July for Alpha Prime Racing and ran a handful of NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series races in 2023 for Young’s Motorsports.
The Hoosier native will start 2024 by attempting to defend his ARCA Menards Series Daytona title with the expectation to run for the championship this season.
Van Alst Motorsports will also expand to a two-car operation in select ARCA Menards Series events starting at Daytona with various drivers.
Outside of racing, Van Alst is a successful entrepreneur, successfully launching Top Choice Fence, one of the premier fence-building companies in the east-central Indiana region.
Van Alst married his high school sweetheart, Christi, in 2005; together, they have four children.
