CONCORD, NC (May 11, 2012) Rev Racing’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Team has returned from a successful day of testing at the famed ¼-mile in Winston-Salem, NC. This team will make its return to racing, at historic Bowman Gray Stadium, on June 2 after a successful start in 2011.
Ryan Gifford, driver of the No. 2 Universal Technical Institute/NASCAR Technical Institute Toyota Camry, who will be returning this season after a top-10 finish in the inaugural race at Bowman Gray Stadium in 2011, said he and his team had a great day and are ready for the return to “The Madhouse”.
“The No. 2 Universal Technical Institute/NASCAR Technical Institute Toyota was really fast and the handling, even at such a challenging small track, was perfect,” said Gifford. “I am really looking forward to the racing here again in June,”
Bryan Ortiz, driver of the No. 4 Toyota/Toyota Racing Development Camry, will be making his first start at Bowman Gray Stadium and was excited about the challenges that this short track is sure to include.
“My car was fast but the challenge for this track will be figuring out how hard to get on the gas,” said Ortiz. “This is the first short track of its kind that I have ever competed at, but I am looking forward to competing here and showing that both myself and this team can handle any challenge.”
Jorge Arteaga, driver of the No. 8 Toyota Camry who will also be competing for the first time at the famed ¼-mile, was one of the first drivers out on the track yesterday and felt that this was a benefit to him and his team.
“We got started early and had a good feeling for this track,” said Arteaga. “We continued to improve throughout the day and are looking forward to our first race at such a short but fun track.”
Rev Racing’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East team will return to Bowman Gray Stadium to compete in the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150 on June 2, 2012.
