CONCORD, N.C. (July 24, 2014) — Rev Racing’s Devon Amos and Paige Decker are headed to Hampton, Va. to race for the fourth time at Langley Speedway. The duo will compete in the Hampton Heat 200, the longest and most anticipated race of the season.
Paige Decker (No. 2 Rev Racing Toyota) — During her month long break from the Whelen All-American Series, Decker was able to get extra seat time with her family-owned racing team to prepare for Saturday’s 79.6-mile event.
Last week, Decker raced her super late model in the Slinger Nationals in her home state of Wisconsin where she became the first female to win a major super late model race in 2013 and subsequently the first woman named Rookie of the Year.
“Any extra seat time helps a driver. Being in a different car and the ability to adapt will help me when jumping back in the late model,” she said. “I want to be a flexible driver.”
After finishing one place shy of gaining her third top 10 of the season in her last outing with Rev Racing at Motor Mile Speedway, she is anxious to get back on the asphalt to showcase her skills at Langley Speedway, one of her favorite tracks.
Devon Amos (No. 6 Rev Racing Toyota) — In his last race, Amos was unable to finish due to suspension damage resulting from a 13-car accident, but he’s not letting the unfavorable finish put a damper on his motivation to have a successful race.
“Our pace has been consistently improving, and I’m looking forward to seeing some good results this weekend,” Amos said. “Hopefully we can avoid trouble and finish the 200 laps close to the front.”
He has been training harder for the 200-lap event and is excited to compete this weekend because it will be new milestone for him. While the Hampton Heat 200 will be the longest race the season, it will also be the longest event of Amos’s racing career.
Mackena Bell (No. 21 Lung Force/B&C Seafood Toyota) — With a weekend off from the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Bell will have the opportunity to race her late model this weekend along with her two Whelen All-American Series teammates.
“I want to thank Lung Force and the American Lung Association for being on the car this weekend,” Bell said. “It’s a pleasure to create awareness for such an important cause, and I’m extremely grateful to get extra seat time.”
Qualifying will start at 4:35 p.m. and racing will begin at 7 p.m.
