Frankie Muniz starred in an enormously popular television program, and has actually been chosen for Emmys and Golden Globes, and a lot of other awards … however the star actor says if he were to win an ARCA series race, it’d be the best expert accomplishment of his profession!
“I don’t know exactly how I’ll react [to winning a race] but the way I feel right now with even the thought about it, it would rank 100% as the greatest accomplishment of … Well okay, maybe having a wife, having my son. But, definitely number 3!” Muniz informed Babcock on the “TMZ Sports” television program (airs nighttime on FS1).
37-year-old Muniz just recently signed on to race full-time in the Rette Jones Racing #30 Ford Mustang automobile — a NASCAR-owned ARCA group — when the series starts in mid-February at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
Of course, Frankie starred as Malcolm in the struck television program, “Malcolm In The Middle.” He likewise starred in “Big Fat Liar” and “Agent Cody Banks,” amongst numerous other movies.
Frankie, whose puppy love is cars/racing, might hardly include his enjoyment at the possibility of racing, and even got psychological throughout the interview.
“I am on cloud 9. I’ve been very fortunate in my life to get to do a lot of cool things but this is something that I’ve wanted, literally, since I was five years old. I’ve reached in the past but I always knew I wanted to go Stock car racing. I wanted to race NASCAR so I’m thrilled to be in the ARCA Menards Series this year and finally get to announce it the other day. Felt really good ’cause it’s something we’ve been talking about for a long time and here I am.”
Muniz understands he has a lot to discover as the brand-new person on the circuit, however he’s more than all set to go.
“I’ve got a lot to learn and I know that so I’m competitive, I want to win,” Frankie stated, while acknowledging he’ll be dealing with chauffeurs with even more experience.
“I know I have to be a realist and know that this gonna be a pretty difficult year for me. I’m more motivated than ever, being older, you know, 37 years old which is fairly old to get started in the stock car world,” Muniz stated.
Bottom line for Muniz … this is his possibility to satisfy his dream, and he isn’t going to let it go by without providing whatever he’s got.
“I have this opportunity in front of me right now and I’m gonna go for it 100%. I don’t wanna look back at the end of the year and go ‘man I wish I tried harder, I wish I trained harder, I wish I spent more time in the ship with the guys learning about the car figuring things out.'”
Muniz will make his ARCA launching in less than a month! Good luck!
