Concord, NC (March 7, 2014) – The first race of the season cannot come quickly enough for Whelen All-American Series drivers Devon Amos and Paige Decker. After watching Rev Racing teammate Daniel Suarez win the first two races of the 2014 K&N Pro Series East season, Decker and Amos are eager to be the next Rev Racing driver to bring a trophy home to Concord. After months of training and preparation, both drivers are eager to make the necessary adjustments for the forthcoming season. Amos will be moving up to a more competitive series, having raced Legends last season. Decker, on the other hand, has previous experience racing Super Late Models, but will be getting acclimated to a new car and pit crew. Regardless, each driver is more than ready to accept the challenges ahead.
When asked about her thoughts on the upcoming race, Decker exclaimed, “I’m so excited for this opportunity that Rev Racing has given me. I can’t wait to get in the car and adjust from the driving style of my [previous] Super Late Model. I am excited for the new challenge and look forward to this 2014 season.”
Paige Decker (#2 Toyota Camry) – Paige Decker, 20, joins the Rev Racing team after racing Super Late Models last season for her family-owned race team. In 2013 Decker etched her name in the history books by winning the Super Late Tundra Feature Round Four at Golden Sands Speedway, making her the first female and first rookie to win a Tundra. Additionally, her historic season garnered her “Rookie Driver of the Year” honors in her division.
Devon Amos (#6 Toyota Camry) – Devon Amos, 22, joined Rev Racing and The NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program in 2013.
