Zearfoss is 21st in points heading into this weekend.
He played baseball and ice hockey in high school. At one point, he played baseball, American Legion baseball, hockey and raced all in the same month.
"I was a little guy who could run fast and had a decent arm," he said. "I'm 5-foot-9 and all of my cousins are over 6 feet; I got the short end of the stick on that one."
He was offered some money to play Division II baseball, but he wanted to pursue a racing career.
His futures goals include moving to the 410 sprint cars and racing with the World of Outlaws.
But first, he wants to win a championship in the 358s. Getting his first win not long after returning from his injury was a significant first step.
