CONCORD, NC (August 30, 2012) Rev Racing’s K&N Pro Series East team will celebrate Labor Day Monday by saluting NASCAR Technical Institute’s 10 year anniversary at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.
Featuring NASCAR Tech’s 10th anniversary celebration logo on the No. 2 Toyota Camry of Ryan Gifford in Monday’s Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140, General Manager, Derik Crotts said that this team is proud to support this valuable partner of Rev Racing.
“Since 2011 NASCAR Technical Institute has been an integral part of Rev Racing’s success,” said Crotts. “Not only by producing top performing engines for our NASCAR K&N Pro Series East teams, but also supplying us with knowledgeable graduates who play key roles as members of our race team.”
One decade ago, NASCAR Technical Institute — a branch of Universal Technical Institute — became the first exclusive educational partner of NASCAR. The 146,000-square-foot training facility located in Mooresville, N.C., opened in July 2002 as the first technical school of its kind to combine automotive training and a NASCAR-approved technologies curriculum into one program. The campus has received many awards including the 2010 NASCAR Diversity Affairs Award and 2010 Motorsports Industry Award from the North Carolina Motorsports Association. Since 2011, NASCAR Tech students have built engines for NASCAR Drive for Diversity and Rev Racing, producing a total of seven NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victories in 22 races.
“We are fortunate to have such exceptional partnerships with NASCAR and teams like Rev Racing that offer our graduates opportunities to wake up every day and work in industries that they love and are passionate about,” said Jennifer Waber-Bergeron, campus president for NASCAR Technical Institute.
Trying to make this team’s partner proud, Ryan Gifford, driver of the No. 2 Universal Technical Institute/NASCAR Technical Institute Toyota Camry, said that he hopes to feature this celebratory design in victory lane on Monday.
“My team has been working hard this season and I believe this design might be just the good luck charm that we need for a strong finish in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140,” said Gifford.
Gifford will join his Rev Racing teammates, Bryan Ortiz, Kyle Larson, and Jorge Arteaga in Monday’s, NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 140 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. Media opportunities are available with all four drivers.
The 10th Anniversary NASCAR Technical Institute logo will be featured on a Rev Racing NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Toyota Camry throughout the remainder of the 2012 season.
