Suarez Aims For Triple-Series Trifecta


danielConcord, NC (April 22, 2014) – Rev Racing’s Daniel Suarez began the 2014 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season by sweeping the first two races. The Monterrey, Mexico native managed to garner both victories within a matter of three days.

Since then, Suarez has accumulated an additional pair of victories in the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series, in which he also competes. He races in both series with the mindset that more seat time, no matter the car, will lead to a better understanding of the sport and contribute to his development as a driver. As a result, his work ethic has produced four victories in seven total races this season.

Suarez’s 2014 season has shown that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of automobile racing. In February, Suarez’s accomplishments earned him the NASCAR Diverse Driver Award, an industry-wide recognition of his on-track success. His achievements have not only caught the attention of the NKNPSE competition, but have also landed him an invitation to compete in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS). This weekend at Richmond International Speedway, Suarez will attempt to outshine his back-to-back wins in Daytona by completing a trifecta. In addition to driving in the NKNPSE for Rev Racing, he will make his NNS debut with Joe Gibbs Racing, before flying to Mexico to compete in the NTS.

Suarez is fully aware of the daunting task ahead of him, but heads into the weekend with the same calm, optimistic and humble demeanor that has gotten him to this point:

“I am grateful to Joe Gibbs Racing for this opportunity and very thankful with Telcel, Silent Circle and Telmex for putting their confidence in me. This is one of the most important steps in my career. Also, I want to say thank you to NASCAR and Rev Racing for giving me the opportunity to race and learn about everything in this world.”

Suarez, 22, joined Rev Racing and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program in 2013. Suarez ran a full season in the NKNPSE, garnering a team-high six top 5, and nine top 10 finishes. The highlight of his 2013 season was his first ever NKNPSE victory at the Columbus Motor Speedway. Additionally, Suarez earned three 2nd place finishes in his final four races, propelling him to 3rd in the final 2013 season rankings. Suarez is currently 2nd in the 2014 NKNPSE standings.

“Daniel is Rev Racing’s fourth driver to participate in a National Series Event. He is very talented, and has shown continuous progress. We are proud to play a major role in Daniel’s development,” said team owner, Max Siegel.

While Suarez’s Nationwide Series debut is a testament to hard work and dedication, it is also a testament to the mission of Rev Racing and the Drive for Diversity Program. Rev Racing houses an academy-style program that provides young minority drivers with the resources to succeed in the sport of NASCAR. On Friday, April 25, 2014, Suarez will be the next minority driver to utilize the resources that Rev Racing has provided and make it to the National Series.

Impressive Weekend for Rev Racing at Greenville



Concord, NC (March 25, 2014) - Speed isn’t everything when it comes to racing. Strategy is equally as important, and the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville Motor Speedway proved to be more of a chess match than checkers. After trailing for most of the race, Rev Racing finished with one driver in the top-5 and 3 in the top-10.

With Ryan Gifford as the only Rev Racing driver to qualify in the top-10, the rest of the group had their work cut out for them over the course of the 150-lap race. Once the green flag was issued, Gifford wasted little time improving his position to 8th. While this was occurring, Suarez, who had started 17th, was mercilessly passing competitor after competitor. By lap 50, Suarez had cracked the top-10 to join teammate Gifford. By the halfway mark Suarez, Gifford, and Peña were all in the top-15.

The next 75 laps were defined by strategy; one that ultimately paid dividends. Over the course of the next 25 laps, both Gifford and Peña dropped out of the top 15 in order to preserve their tires and prepare for one final push. Things started to look bleak as they fell all the way to 16th and 18th place. However with 40 laps to go, Peña and Gifford made their moves, ascending through the standings, passing one car after another. With 25 laps to go they were both challenging for a spot in the top-10, and after a restart with 13 laps to go, both were able to break through. Meanwhile, Suarez was neck and neck with P4 and P6, fighting to hold on to his 5th place standing. Another caution with 10 laps to go brought the action to a halt. The restart came with 6 laps to go and proved to be advantageous for Suarez, Gifford, and Peña as they solidified their 5th, 6th, and 9th place positions and held on until the checkered flag. Beasley and Bell finished the race 19th and 20th, respectively.

While Peña is please with his first top-10 of the season, he is far from content. In reference to his performance, Peña stated, “The start of the season has been pretty rough, so this was a nice relief. I want to thank my crew chief Wolfy and car chief Tanner for all of the hard work they’ve been putting in. We still have some work to do though. We need a 9th place finish to be a bad day, not a good day.”

The rest of the Rev Racing team shares this same mindset. After taking Sunday to rest and celebrate the impressive performances, the entire team was back at work early Monday morning to prepare for the next race.

Rev Racing returns to the track on April 25th for the Blue Ox 100 at Richmond International Speedway.

Unsung Hero of the Week


Mark Green (No. 2 Toyota Crew Chief/Shop Foreman) – Green returns to Rev Racing as Crew Chief of the No. 2 Rev Racing Toyota. In 2013, he helped Ryan Gifford earn his first career victory in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. That same year, the No. 2 Camry finished the season with four top-5 and six top-10 finishes. Green brings a wealth of racing knowledge with him to Rev Racing having competed in both the NASCAR Busch (currently Nationwide) and Sprint Cup Series.

In addition to his role as crew chief, Green is also the shop foreman. Under the direction of the Director of Competition, Green is responsible for the day-to-day management of the K&N Shop. Green works tirelessly with upper management to plan and develop company goals. He assists with optimizing department operations to ensure program efficiency and productivity, while implementing new procedures and policies as necessary. Lastly, Mark oversees the production and assembly of all the K&N race cars.

Green and Gifford just recently garnered their first top-10 finish of the 2014 season at Greenville Motor Speedway.

On the Fast Track for Success

pressimageINDIANAPOLIS, IN (November 22, 15) – Max Siegel, native Indianapolis resident and nationally-renowned sports and entertainment executive, finds himself in the forefront of yet another victorious moment in his professional career. Siegel, who is currently the fourth CEO of USA Track & Field (USATF), also owns and manages Rev Racing, the competition arm of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program. Rev Racing serves as the NASCAR-supported racing team charged with developing female and minority drivers, and pit crew members in the NASCAR development series for future competition at NASCAR’s highest levels.

Under Siegel’s management, Rev Racing has continued to field drivers in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series since 2010. Drivers such as, Kyle Larson (Sprint Cup Series), Darrell Wallace Jr. (Xfinity Series) and Daniel Suarez (Xfinity Series) are all a testament to Siegel’s program’s success.

This past weekend, as NASCAR’s touring season came to a close, two NASCAR Drive for Diversity graduates have made history as the first Drive for Diversity winners in their respective fields. Daniel Suarez, is the first Mexican Sunoco Rookie of the Year and Mike Russell, crew jackman, has become the first African-American Drive for Diversity graduate to be part of a championship-winning team. On top of that, Rev Racing alum Kyle Larson won the season closer at Homestead for the NASCAR XFINITY Series race.

Rev Racing also experienced two wins in the 2015 season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, where the team hosts six drivers. Hispanic driver Collin Cabre became the sixth driver from the NASCAR Drive For Diversity Program to win a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race and gave Rev Racing and Siegel, which has fielded the competition team for the program since 2010, its 17th win. Jay Beasley also captured the Coca-Cola Move of the Race Award for the entire 2015 season.

“For the last seven years Rev Racing has managed the D4D Program,” said Siegel. “We could not be more proud of the success of our drivers and pit crew graduates, such as Russell. We are excited about the role we have played in the development of these young men and women. We look forward to many more years of continued success as we grow our team and expand our development program.”

As Siegel’s success rate continues to soar, he is focused on providing the same opportunities for others to pave their way as well. Siegel and NASCAR’s Diversity Program hosted their 12th annual Combine at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va. on October 21st. Twenty-two drivers competed for one of six spots in the motorsports industry’s top driver development program at Rev Racing. Siegel is focused on finding the next set of talented drivers to take the track and follow his consistent professional winning streak.

“Rev Racing’s partnership with NASCAR is unique in all sports and demonstrates what can be done two impact an industry and culture when two organizations are committed to each other; a common vision to excellence,” said Siegel.

D4D Combine Success Attributed to Strong Partnerships

76carFor its 5th consecutive year, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity (D4D) Combine will take place in Hampton. A NASCAR-sanctioned initiative, the success of the Drive for Diversity Combine is largely contributed to the support of its partners and year-round sponsors.

D4D partner, Langley Speedway, will host the combine, drivers and officials on October 19th – October 21st. Langley Speedway is a NASCAR-sanctioned track that hosts more than fifty percent of Rev Racing’s Whelen All-American Series races throughout the year.

In addition to the on-track performance evaluations that will take place at Langley Speedway, the participants will be evaluated on physical fitness conducted by pit crew coach Phil Horton at Hampton University.

“Langley Speedway is pleased to continue their relationship with NASACR Drive for Diversity and Rev Racing for the fifth consecutive year,” said Bill Mullis, owner of Langley Speedway. “We again welcome the opportunity to partner with the City of Hampton and Hampton University to showcase these stars of tomorrow,”

Rev Racing’s partnership with Hampton University has extended outside just the use of their facilities. Management at Rev Racing has worked year-round with students in the sports management program as well as the school of business at Hampton. Students and faculty have worked jointly with Rev Racing on research projects, strategies and distribution tactics of the team’s social media platform.

Before hitting the track, combine participants and Hampton students will  go through an afternoon media and PR training session at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communication.

Rev Racing and the Drive for Diversity Program continue to look for opportunities to improve the combine and driver experiences, as well as, engage other institutions that hold similar diversity initiatives.

“We are extremely proud of the relationships that we have fostered with our various partners,” said Rev Racing owner, Max Siegel. “We look forward to continuing these relationships and look for areas of growth for many years to come.”

Another destination for the Drive for Diversity Combine is the Boo Williams Sportsplex. This year, the City of Hampton and Bill Mullis will provide NASCAR & Rev Racing with an inaugural catered dinner as an official welcome to the combine and to the city of Hampton, Virginia.

In addition to Langley Speedway, Hampton University, and the Boo Williams Sportsplex Rev Racing and Drive for Diversity would also like to thank NASCAR, Sunoco, Honda Generators, Courtyard Marriot by Hampton, Five Star Bodies, iRacing, Mobil1, Mechanix Wear, Driven Steering, Castle, Racing Radios, 3M, UTI, Max Siegel Inc., Heintz Performance, Fluidyne, L&M Ethanol and Goodyear for their continued support during the combine and the entire NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season.

REV RACING Driver, Collin Cabre, wins the Drive Sober 150 at Dover International Speedway

NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Drive Sober 125CHARLOTTE, NC – After rain postponed Friday’s Drive Sober 125 race at the Monster Mile, Rev Racing drivers were uncertain with their ability to run in the final competition of the season. The team found themselves back at the track Saturday morning in the middle of additional rain, NASCAR Sprint Cup practice and the NASCAR Xfinity race.

Rev Racing drivers finally hit the track at 12:30 p.m., without qualifications or practice. The delay and lack of track time, however, didn’t slow down Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Collin Cabre. The 21-year-old from Tampa, Florida, scored his first K&N Pro series East career victory.

Cabre became the sixth driver from the NASCAR Drive For Diversity Program to win a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race and gave Rev Racing, which has fielded the competition team for the program since 2010, its 17th win.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect having had no opportunity to practice or feel out the track,” said Cabre. “The car just felt great and my crew guided me into a comfort zone. I realized we not only had an opportunity to be competitive, but to actually win this thing. I put everything I had into it and we won.”

Cabre started the race in 12th position, as the starting lineup was set according to the rulebook. Cabre’s No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota crossed the finish line 6.454 seconds in front of series veteran Eddie MacDonald. Cabre will finish his rookie season 10th in overall point standings.

“I think the best thing about working with Collin this season was his willingness to listen and take in as much information as we could throw at him,” stated Crew Chief Matt Bucher. “Every situation we’ve run into this year, he has never doubted what we have done or asked of him. This goes a long way with our confidence in him and his confidence in us as a crew. The more he races, the better he gets and I’m sure Dover won’t be his last trip to victory lane.”

Kenzie Ruston, driver of the No. 4 Sunoco Toyota, started in 11th position and finished the race in 13th position. Ruston had her best ever Dover finish, as historically this track has posed a challenge. Ruston will finish the season 11th in overall point standings.

Devon Amos, driver of the No. 6 Honda Generator Toyota, started in 15th position and finished the race in 12th position. Amos fluctuated back and forth several spots throughout the race, battling for position as the checkered approached. Amos will finish the season 14th in overall point standings.

Jay Beasley, driver of the No. 4 Special Smiles Toyota, started in 10th position and finished the race in 21st position. As the green flag waved, Beasley quickly moved up several spots to P7. Approaching lap 15 Beasley had a left front tire blow, which forced him to the garage for timely repairs. His crew got him back on the track to finish the Drive Sober 125 for his return to the K&N Pro Series. Beasley will finish the season 16th in overall point standings after missing three races this 2015 season.

Rev Racing drivers will focus on the 2015 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine, as it is set to take place October 19th -21st at Langley Speedway. Other participants competing for the 2016 class will be announced this week.

Rev Racing Heads to the Monster Mile for Last Race of the Season

#42-1CHARLOTTE, NC – Rev Racing rounds out the K&N Pro Series East season this Friday at Dover International Speedway for the Drive Sober 125. Known as the “Monster Mile,” Dover’s one-mile track will serve as the host for the 14th and final race of the season.

Rev drivers are eager to get back behind the wheel after a rained-out race in Richmond. Dover is a track Rev Racing is all too familiar with and a common stop in previous K&N seasons. Rev alumni Darrell Wallace Jr. is even the only multi-time polesitter at Dover. With final standings on everyone’s mind, Rev’s four K&N drivers hope to finish the season off strong.

Currently P10 in points standings, driver Kenzie Ruston will head to Dover in the #4 Sunoco Toyota. After a consistent track record of season successes, Ruston saw her last top-5 at Motordrome Speedway in mid-August. Historically, Dover has been a challenge for Ruston both in qualifying and finishing. She and her team are more than prepared to change the end of the season outcome.

#2 Universal Technical Institute Toyota driver Collin Cabre heads into Friday’s race after a rookie season of consistent improvement. Cabre added his first K&N top-10 to his resume in July at Iowa Speedway and continues to qualify within the top-10. He hopes to finish the season strong and return in 2016. Cabre is currently P11 in points standings.

Devon Amos will finish his rookie K&N season this Friday. Currently in P14 in points standings, Amos is prepared to do whatever it takes to close the season out on a high note.

Jay Beasley will make his return with Rev Racing on Friday, manning the #42 Special Smiles Toyota. Beasley was cleared by NASCAR to race and is focused on finishing out the season in the No. 42. After missing 3 races, Beasley is still sitting at P16.

Rev Racing Races Richmond

COlF4oOWUAAYXRtLast weekend, Rev Racing took to Richmond International Raceway for the UNOH 100. While Rev was ready for another victory, poor weather conditions put the race in jeopardy.

Rain delayed race day activities for several hours, interrupting and ultimately canceling qualifying efforts. In lack of qualifying, owner’s points dictated starting order, putting Rev drivers #42 Sergio Peña, #4 Kenzie Ruston, #2 Collin Cabre and #6 Devon Amos in p9, p11, p12 and p15 respectively.

Starting the race in the top-15, Rev held onto their positions and pushed for a top-10. However, a caution lap 18 sent some Rev drivers into pit row, causing them to continue the race fighting to regain their position. #2 Collin Cabre held onto the top-15 for much of the race, while #4 Kenzie Ruston reached p22 after her p29 restart by lap 60.

As Rev drivers continued to advance, rain once again derailed race plans and caused an eight lap caution starting on lap 61. While rain persisted, all drivers shifted into pit row to wait out the weather. Unfortunately, weather was not on our side and the race ended prematurely on lap 69.  #2 Collin Cabre finished p17, #4 Kenzie Ruston in p22, #6 Devon Amos in p29, and #42 Sergio Peña in p31.

Rev Racing returns to the rack in October, for the Drive Sober 150 at Dover International Speedway.

Continued Success for Rev Racing and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Program

rev-pena (1)

Concord, NC. (August 25, 2015) – This past weekend at Virginia International Raceway, Rev Racing and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program earned another checkered flag to add to its sixth consecutive winning season. This first place finish will mark the 16th win for Rev Racing in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East division.

Sergio Peña, Rev Racing alumni and fill-in driver of the No. 42 Special Smiles Pediatric Dentistry Toyota, battled his way to the finish line to collect his fifth career win in the NKPSE. The 22-year-old Virginia native took advantage of this driving opportunity, as former teammate Jay Beasley is continuing to receive medical treatment. Peña also received the Coca-Cola Move of the Race Award.

On lap 59 Peña was in fifth position on the final restart and quickly moved up to third after the race leader spun in turn 1, allowing the No. 51 to take the lead. Going into turn 7, the No. 51 went off the track leaving the No. 3 and Peña in the battle for the lead. The two cars made slight contact and Peña was able to use the inside line to stay out front and take the checkered.

“Peña has road course experience. He is a fearless, yet focused driver. If he has an opportunity to win, he is going to take it,” said Jefferson Hodges, Rev Racing Director of Competition. “We are extremely proud of the No. 42 team and our development program, as we continue to find ourselves with winning seasons year after year. This race will mark the 16th win for our organization and I foresee continued success as we bring our season to a close.”

Rookie Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) also had a very impressive finish, garnering his first NKPSE top-5. Cabre and team ran a solid race, positioning him for place advancement within the last 5 laps of the race. Cabre is now in 11th position in points standings.

Kenzie Ruston piloting the No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota, was in position to finish the race in the top-5 when she slid off the track on lap 51 leaving her with a 14th place finish. Ruston still remains in 10th position in point standings.

Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) qualified in 8th position and pushed his way to the top-5 on lap 12. Unfortunately, on lap 27, Amos experienced some steering issues moving him on to pit row. After a crew assessment he was unable to return to the track. Currently, Amos is 14th in point standings.

The Biscuitville 150 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to the track UNOH 100 at Richmond International Raceway on Thursday, Sept. 10th.

“Collin has really made strides when it comes to performance and on-track communication. He is really getting comfortable with the car and can tell us what he needs to get the job done. He was fortunate to be able to get additional seat time in some Late Model races this season. This provided both an opportunity to gain experience and garner some confidence,” said Matt Bucher, Crew Chief of the No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota.

Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) will approach the second road race of the season with excitement and commitment. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, Amos was unable to complete the required laps at Watkins Glenn, but got a taste of what it feels like to be behind the wheel on a road course. His crew will work hard to focus on driver/crew communication and handling as they prepare to take on VIR.

Sergio Peña (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota), will join Rev Racing again for the second race this season in place of his teammate, Jay Beasley. The Winchester, VA native will be competing on a track that he’s grown familiar with over the years as VIR is located only a few hours from Peña’s hometown. Peña and crew were very satisfied with the finish they had at the Motordrome, despite some unfortunate tire issues. The team hopes that experience and familiarity with VIR will make him a definite contender for a top-5 finish.
