CONCORD, NC (June 21, 2012) After coming off its first win of the season, Rev Racing is looking forward to this weekend at Langley Speedway, in Hampton, VA. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East heads to the oldest consecutively running short track in the country this Saturday, June 23, for the Visit Hampton, VA 175.
Last season Rev Racing saw former Drive for Diversity team member, Sergio Peña, pick up a win at Langley. With that in mind, and carrying momentum from the win at Gresham Motorsports Park, with 2012 rookie, Kyle Larson, the team is more than ready to get back to the track this weekend.
As the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East reaches its halfway point in the 2012 season this Saturday, Rev Racing’s Larson finds himself only three points out of the Series lead and seven points ahead of teammate, Bryan Ortiz, in the Rookie of the Year standings.
“I am looking forward to jumping back into the No. 6 Rev Racing and L&M Ethanol Maintenance Contracting, Inc. Toyota Camry this Saturday,” said Larson. “While the points battle is exciting, I am more interested in putting the No. 6 back in victory lane this weekend.”
Following his best finish at Bowman Gray Stadium recently, Ortiz said that he is looking forward to racing at this .395-mile flat track.
“I am ready to get back in the driver’s seat this weekend and have a great run for myself, my family, my crew, including my spotter who is originally from this area, and partners, including Toyota and Rev Racing.”
Ortiz also hopes that this finish will put him back in contention for the Rookie of the Year points battle against teammate, Larson.
“My crew works so hard and deserves to be in the front contending for a great battle with my teammate, Larson.”
After finishing outside of the top 20 last year at Langley Speedway, Rev Racing driver, Ryan Gifford, said that he is looking forward to ending this Saturday night’s race on a much higher note.
“We had a tough time here last year, but this team has continued to work hard and improve this season and I feel good about a stronger finish this weekend.”
