Sharing the news on Instagram, the former star of ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ wrote, “Finally making my dream a reality, this one is for my son and showing him that you can always chase your dreams. Excited for this opportunity with Rette Jones Racing, Ford, and our partners to go full-time racing for an ARCA National Series Championship in 2023.”
Muniz will race the Number 30 Ford Mustang for Rette Jones Racing. He told People in an interview that the birth of his first child, Mauz Mosley Muniz on March 22, 2021, inspired him to pursue his dream of racing in a series. He said, "It hit me when I had my son. I want him to grow up seeing me reach for my dreams and work hard for something that I'm passionate about, and the one world where I feel like I still have unfinished business was the racing world. So I'm going to go racing." And added that in 2005, he "caught the bug of wanting to be a driver" after winning at the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race tournament in Long Beach, California.
