Tame Night at the Mad House, Rev Scores 3 Top-10s

SONY DSCConcord, NC (June 1, 2015) – In what turned out to be an uncharacteristically tame night at the Mad House, Rev Racing was able to finish with 3 top-10’s and 1 top-5.

Jay Beasley set the pace for his teammates by securing a fourth place finish and bringing home his first top-5 of the 2015 season. After stellar qualifying effort for the second year in a row, Beasley took the green flag in seventh place. However, much to the dismay of race fans who only come to Bowman Gray to see a dog fight, there was very little action from that point forward. There weren’t any wrecks on restarts, on the rare occasion there was one, and the physical racing was kept to a minimum. Therefore, Beasley’s ability to take advantage of a few mistakes made by his competitors ultimate allowed him to coast to a top-5.

“Feel like we had a really good car, and we need a little bit more to win the race. However, going into Langley I really feel that we can win. I’m not going to be happy unless we’re in the thick of it at the end. From here on out, we’re going to be really fast so I’m not going to be content until we win”

Not too far behind Beasley was his teammates Devon Amos who finished the Hall of Fame 150 in 6th place. Unlike his teammate, Amos, who qualified in 10th had a few obstacles to overcome on the way to his first top-10 of the season. At one point in the race, Amos had fallen as far back as 13th. However, after avoiding a pile-up mid-way through the race which sent four drivers ahead of him to the back of the pack, he was able to return to the top-10.

The third Rev Racing member to place inside of the Top-10 was Kenzie Ruston. Ruston finished ninth after qualifying 11th. Rev Racing’s leading lady had a solid night on the track, and though she had to fend off a few defenders, she was ultimately able to coast through the race

Last, but not least, Collin Cabre finished the race in 17th place, respectively.

Mad House Madness!

11143100_10153041852283649_579735255760957592_nConcord NC (May 29, 2015) – All of the tactics and strategies used at the tracks leading up to this weekend’s outing at Bowman Gray will go out the window. Bowman Gray isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s nicknamed the Mad House for a reason. When drivers enter the Mad House, they race by a different set of rules. The .25-mile paved flat oval is the NASCAR equivalent to stepping inside of a gladiator ring. It’s a fight to the finish in which there are, metaphorically, many casualties. There is only one strategy when racing at Bowman Gray: stay in the front of the pack or survive the clutter in the middle long enough to make it there. Ultimately, while fans come to cheer their favorite drivers to victory, the middle of the pack is what they really come to see. The bumping, the banging, the sliding, the crashing, the cautions, and the controversy are what make the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150 so appealing. The dropping of the green flag is essentially the commencement of a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. And similar to past year, there is little doubt that sparks will fly this coming Saturday.

Leading the way at the Mad House will be none other than Jay Beasley and Kenzie Ruston. Last Season, Jay Beasley (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota) had the best qualifying effort of the entire Rev Racing team. He was the only member to qualify within the Top-10 and was fortunately able to utilize his qualifying position to secure a 9th place finish.

Similar to her teammate, Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) was also able to secure a top-10 finish last year at the Mad House as a member of Ben Kennedy Racing. Ruston and Crew Chief Mark Green have found the formula for consistency with regard to Ruston’s car set-up. The next step for these two will be to use said consistency to replicate last year’s top-10 effort to help bolster the statistic sheet for Rev Racing.

Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) and Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) will both be competing at the Made House for the first time in their young NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Careers. However, as both drivers accumulate more races under their belt, their confidence has grown tremendously since the inaugural race at New Smyrna. Amos is confident that had it not been for an unavoidable accident at Iowa, he was on par for the first top-10 finish of his career. Consequently, Amos enters this weekend’s race with a chip on his shoulder as he felt he was robbed. Fortunately for him, a chip on one’s shoulder is exactly what is needed to survive 150 laps at the Mad House!

Rev Racing Fights for Top-10 Finish at Iowa

16604025954_33c0f88d6f_zConcord, NC (May 18, 2015) – Rev Racing’s K&N drivers took on Iowa Speedway this past weekend for the Casey’s General Store 150, a nearly 132 mile race on “the fastest short track on the planet.”

After a difficult bout on April 21 in Bristol, the Rev Racing team returned to the track motivated. For a track known for its difficulty to pass, Rev Racing defied the odds and made strides toward a top-10 finish.

Devon Amos, driving the #66 Max Siegel Inc. Toyota, had a solid practice, placing him in the top-15 qualifying positions after final practice. With a few adjustments, Amos was the first to take to the track for qualifying and ultimately secured P18.  After the green flag, Amos spent the majority of the race pushing through to the top-15. With ten laps to go, Amos found himself leading the Rev team with a stronghold on P12 ready to break the top-10 by the end of the race. Unfortunately, an interaction between the #7 and the #98 spun #98 in front of Amos, damaging his front body beyond repair and sending him out of the race with only 8 laps to go. Amos finished P25, despite the incident.

Manning the #2 UTI/NTI Toyota, Collin Cabre qualified P31, after finding himself in the in P30 and above positions during practice. However, the placement didn’t deter Cabre as he steadily moved up throughout the race, eventually finding himself in P22 for the checkered flag, a nine-position advancement.

Kenzie Ruston, behind the wheel of the #4 L&M Toyota, wasted little time turning her P22 spot into a position in the top-20. Within 20 laps, Ruston made her way to P19 and placed herself well to continue passing throughout the race. However, a blown left rear tire set Ruston back mid-race as she rushed into pit. Returning P34, Ruston worked her way forward once more and eventually finished nine positions ahead, at P25.

#42 Special Smiles Pediatric Dentistry Toyota driver Jay Beasley also made an outstanding drive, advancing 11 positions before the checkered flag. Qualifying P22, Beasley was one of the brave drivers to ride the top of the track and consistently move up throughout the race. Edging alongside #66 Devon Amos for a period of time, battling between P17 and P18, Beasley eventually rode through the pack and found himself P14 with 30 laps to go. After multiple cautions in the last 30 laps, Beasley used the restart to his advantage and finished P12.

The team continues their K&N Pro Series East season Saturday, May 30 at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC for the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150.

Rev Racing Heads to the Hawkeye State

16604025954_33c0f88d6f_zConcord, NC (May 12, 2015) – Despite a larger than usual car count due to additional competitors from the NASCAR Pro Series West, Iowa Speedway has traditionally been a track where drivers under the tutelage of Director of Competition Jefferson Hodges have experienced much success. In the two showings at Iowa Speedway last season, the Rev Racing teams accumulated two top-5s and three top-10s in addition to two 11th place finishes. Most notably, the first race at Iowa Speedway marked Jay Beasley’s breakout performance of the 2014 season. After qualifying 9th, Beasley went on the finish the race in 4th and secure his first career top-5. His dominance in the Casey’s General Store 150 ended up being the catalyst for a dominant streak that saw the likes of three more top-10s over the next four races When asked what about Iowa Speedway jump-started Beasley’s season, he responded,  “I really like the speed of the track. It’s one of the tracks I feel really comfortable at. Nothing was wrong with my cars leading up to Iowa last year. It just took a while to figure out the right set up. After trying some things we found that formula at Iowa and the results showed. And we continued with that formula and the results continued to show. This year Skip has been working really hard and trying a few new things to make sure I’m as comfortable as possible in the car so I’m confident that we’ll have another good race this year. “ Beasley’s teammate Kenzie Ruston will also be focused on replicating last year’s success at Iowa Speedway.  Mechanical issues derailed what was panning out to be a top-10 performance in her first outing. However, she bounced back magnificently in her second outing. Ruston not only drove her way to a 2nd place finish, but she also drove her way into the record books as the highest finishing female in NASCAR K&N Pro Series history. Ruston and Crew Chief Mark Green have already garnered one top-10 this season. If the two of them can find the same formula that was used in Ruston’s second outing at Iowa in 2014, it’s likely that Ruston could be on the brink of another historic performance in 2015. Rounding out the Rev Racing team are newcomers Devon Amos and Collin Cabre who will both be competing at Iowa for the first time in their NKNPSE careers. The larger car count and addition of NKNPSW drivers will provide a unique challenge that each of the rookie drivers has yet to experience. However, each of their Crew Chiefs along with Hodges will make sure that both drivers are well prepared to manage the task at hand.

Tough Sledding for Rev at Bristol

SONY DSCConcord, NC (April 21, 2015) – This past weekend at Bristol proved to be a tough outing for the Rev Racing team. Veteran Jay Beasley was the lone Rev Racing driver to finish the brutal 125 lap race.

He was having a decent race for the first 100 laps, however his night was derailed when he pulled out of line too soon on a restart and got black-flagged. He subsequently had to serve the penalty under green had was sent to the back of the pack.

Tire and mechanical issues seemed to plague Beasley’s teammates. Teammate Cabre blew a front right tire one third of the way through the race. The car experienced slight damage but was very much still drivable. Cabre pitted, the tire was changed, and he rejoined the field. However, 5 laps later the front right surprisingly blew again causing Cabre to hit the wall. This time, the damage to the car was too drastic to return to the race.

Amos was solid for the first 50 laps or so of the race. However, similar to the number 2, Amos blew a front right tire and hit the wall. Ultimately, the damage to his vehicle was too substantial to continue racing.

Ruston was sidelined when toward the beginning of the race when a blown head gasket caused her motor filled up with water. Her crew thought there might have been an issue with the radiator until they pulled the plugs and realized that the head gasket on the left side of the motor was busted.

Taming the World’s Fastest ½ Mile

11079351_10152959149358649_8810461811182013067_nConcord, NC (April 15, 2015) – In what will be the first companion race of the season, Rev Racing will head to Bristol Motor Speedway in hopes of taming the world’s fastest ½ mile. Last season’s race at Bristol pushed all five Rev Racing teams to their limits. After a tough 125 laps of racing, Jay Beasley was one of only two Rev Racing drivers to finish the race. However, a roster full of new faces gives Rev Racing a fresh start heading into the weekend. And, the lone returnee from last year’s NKNPSE team goes into the race with experience on his side.

Jay Beasley (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota) – The Las Vegas, Nevada native will be asked to lead his teammates into the PittLite 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Beasley has improved drastically from the driver he was entering last year’s event. Beasley entered 2014’s race with hardly any NKNPSE experience and outperformed all of his veteran teammates. However, this year Beasley is the veteran, and hopes to once again lead by example. 

Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) – Although Ruston has raced at Bristol Motor Speedway many times, this weekend will mark the first time she will be competing at Bristol as a member of Rev Racing. Though this track can be intimidating to most, the El Reno, Oklahoma native has a solid grasp of what it takes to perform well at the speedway. Last season, Ruston entered the race with a solid vehicle and was on her way to a top-10 finish before incidental contact derailed her campaign. Nonetheless, Ruston is confident that she will be able to replicate late season’s effort and bring home the top-10 that eluded her last season.

Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) – The PittLite 125 will mark the first time the Rio Rancho, New Mexico native has competed at Bristol Motor Speedway. For Amos, it will be key to remain poised and let the race come to him. For a NKNPSE novice, he will need to remain calm and follow the strategy put forth by his crew chief. If Amos can successfully do so, he will like where he stands come the end of the race.

Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) – Similar to Amos, Cabre is another NKNPSE novice at Bristol. The Rev Racing newcomer has shown that he is fundamentally sound with his racing technique. While his patience and driving led to a decent race last time out at Greenville Pickens, such prowess is crucial at Bristol Motor Speedway; a track that is known for being unkind to undisciplined drivers. If Cabre can build off of his last performance, he should have a solid weekend.

Qualifying for the PittLite 125 begins at 5:00pm on Thursday. The autograph session will take place from 12:15 – 1:00pm on Saturday, followed by the PittLite 125 at 4:30pm EST.

Rev Racing Returns to Action at Greenville

10996676_10152867872128649_410858394336387223_nConcord, NC (April 2, 2015) – After an extended break following the inaugural race, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to action this coming Saturday for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville Pickens Speedway. Though Rev Racing competed in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 with a completely different roster last season, the team witnessed one driver finish in the top-5 and three finish in the top-10. Needless to say, this year’s foursome has some big shoes to fill.

Leading the way for Rev Racing is none other than veteran Kenzie Ruston. After kicking off her season and Rev Racing career with a top-10 finish, momentum for the 2015 season is already on Ruston’s side. In both races at Greenville Pickens Speedway last season, Ruston finished twelfth. Therefore, Ruston’s goal this time around is to finish 10th or better in order to continue solidifying her growth as a drivers.

However, Ruston hasn’t been the only driver preparing for this weekend’s race. Teammates Collin Cabre, Jay Beasley, and Devon Amos have been diligently preparing themselves over the seven week intermission. Every day has been a matter of improving through physical training with Coach Phil Horton, collaborating with their crew members on their K&N cars, or mentoring the Whelen All-American Series drivers at their races.

Of the aforementioned trio, Beasley is the only driver to have competed at Greenville Pickens speedway. In his previous two stints, Beasley was unable to finish better than 14th. However, things are different for Beasley this year. He’s more experienced and has a different crew chief. And the Las Vegas native is adamant that those two factors will make a drastic difference.

“Skip is going to have my car dialed in. Although I’m not a fan of the long break we’ve had, it’s given Skip and I a chance to really discuss our strategy and what we need to focus on for the upcoming race. My crew and set-up are drastically different from last year. And the hard work that Skip and Richard have put into my car has really allowed my confidence to grow and I couldn’t be more appreciative and excited for Greenville,” said Beasley. Two-lap qualifying begins at 6:00pm, followed by the on-track autograph session at 7:00pm. The Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 will begin at 8:00pm EST.

Ruston Scores Top-10 in Rev Racing Debut

10996676_10152867872128649_410858394336387223_nConcord, NC (Feb. 19, 2015) – Kenzie Ruston is a proven commodity in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. The El Reno, Oklahoma native has consistently performed well in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East for the past two seasons. The only question surrounding Ruston’s Rev Racing debut was how should would adapt to a new car and a new crew. By the end of the night, both questions were answered. And if Sunday’s top-10 finish is any inclination of the year to come, Ruston is in for a championship caliber season.

Although Ruston had an excellent end to her night, there was still an adjustment period early on. The 22-year-old experienced some obstacles and struggled to post a time better than 14th throughout practice. Her struggles continued through qualifying and Ruston ultimately began the race outside of the top-20.

However, despite her early struggles, the veteran driver remained poised and optimistic. With dozens of races already under her belt, it was going to take more than a few early struggles to deter Ruston.

After taking the Green flag, Ruston wasted little time cracking the top-20. Eventually after increasing her standing to 19th, her teammates, Jay Beasley and Collin Cabre, trailed in the following two positions. The three of them would go on to race a decent portion of the race in this tandem, moving through the pack in a synchronize effort. By lap 93, Ruston began to distance herself from her teammates and was threatening to crack the top-10. After a few subsequent cautions, Ruston was finally able to crack the top-10 with just under 25 laps to go. Over the final few laps of the race, a couple more cautions allowed a few competitors to impose on Ruston’s position every time she managed to create some separation. However, Ruston ultimately fought off all challengers and was able to hold on to her 10th place position through the checkered flag.

Additionally, Ruston’s teammate Cabre was able to battle to a 15th place finish in his Rev Racing debut after spinning out mid-way through the race and damaging the tail end of his vehicle. Unfortunately, remaining teammates Beasley and Amos were unable to finish the race.

Rev Racing will return to the track on April 4, 2015 for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville Pickens Speedway.

Rev Racing to Begin New Era at New Smyrna

SONY DSCConcord, NC (Feb. 11, 2015) – When the K&N drivers take the green flag at New Smyrna for the inaugural race of the 2015 season, it will mark a new era for Rev Racing. With three fresh faces competing in the NKNPSE for Rev Racing this season, our team will welcome new beginnings while looking to build upon the legacy established by previous drivers who have come through the program. Leading the charge for Rev Racing will be Jay Beasley, the lone returnee from last year’s NKNPSE roster.

Jay Beasley (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota) – The Las Vegas, Nevada native had a stellar 2014 season, finishing 13th in the overall point standings and 6th in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year voting. For Beasley, last year was defined by progression. At first, Beasley experienced some struggles as it took some time for him to acclimate to the NKNPSE. However, by seasons end, Beasley was driving with the acumen and prowess of a veteran. Now that Beasley has gained the knowledge and experience to win, he wants to show that he can consistently perform at a championship level. And what better place to begin than New Smyrna where he watched former teammate Daniel Suarez dominate in a season which led to Suarez’s Xfinity Series deal.

Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) – Although she is a new racer to the Rev Racing roster, Kenzie Ruston is far from a rookie in the NKNPSE. Ruston is a proven driver within the series. For the El Reno, Oklahoma native, the only unanswered question is how will she adjust to a new car and new crew. However, considering the 22-year-old finished 9th in the 2014 overall point standing, it is doubtful she will waste time and will quickly establish herself as one of the top performers in the series.

Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) – The Hart to Heart Breast Cancer Foundation 150 will not only mark Amos’ first time competing at New Smyrna, but it will mark the first time the Rio Rancho, New Mexico native has competed in the NKNPSE. Respectively, Amos is a product of the Rev Racing system. Starting in Legends and working his way up to the NKNPSE, Competition Director Jefferson Hodges has coached Amos to success in every series he has competed in. Furthermore, despite Amos’ status as a rookie in the series, under the leadership and tutelage of Hodges, it is expected that Amos will once again rise to the occasion and become a force in the NKNPSE.

Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) – Cabre is a fresh face to both Rev Racing and the NKNPSE. Similar to teammate Amos, the series, as well as New Smyrna Speedway, will be new territory for the Tampa, Florida native. How well Collin will fair in the series is yet to be determined. However, Cabre impressed enough NASCAR officials at the Drive for Diversity Combine to earn a spot on our 2015 roster. If he can replicate the same driving competence moving forward, the 21-year-old should have a solid season.

Qualifying begins at 5:00pm, followed by the autograph session at 6:30pm and the Hart to Heart Breast Cancer Foundation 150 at 7:30pm EST.

Fresh Faces Fill 2015 NASCAR Drive For Diversity Roster

15_9217_RevRacing_Web_banners_UPDATEDCONCORD, N.C. — – NASCAR Drive for Diversity (D4D), the leading development platform for female and multicultural drivers and pit crew members, announced its 2015 class today. The program welcomes four talented program newcomers to the six-driver roster striving to transition into the sport’s national series spotlight. Rev Racing, the program’s competition arm, has played a key role in the development of 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year Kyle Larson and NASCAR XFINITY Series drivers Darrell Wallace Jr. and Daniel Suarez.

“Taking steps to find and develop young female and multicultural athletes who could represent the future of NASCAR is at the core of our organization’s mission,” said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “We were impressed by the talent displayed at the Combine [in October of 2014], and are eager to help this group find their own strengths on and off the track.”

Rev Racing will field four teams in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and two in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. The 2015 class is led by returning members Devon Amos, who after an impressive 2014 performance in the Whelen All-American Series earned a spot in the K&N Series and K&N Pro Series driver Jay Beasley

The 2015 roster includes:

Devon Amos: Returning to the team, the 23-year-old Rio Rancho, New Mexico, native will make the jump to the K&N Pro Series East after two full seasons in the Whelen All-American Series.

Jay Beasley: Finishing 13th overall and sixth in a loaded Sunoco Rookie of the Year field in the K&N Pro Series East last season, the 23-year-old from Las Vegas, Nevada will return for a second season with Rev Racing, aiming to best his rookie season.

Collin Cabre: After an impressive D4D Combine performance, the 21-year-old Thonotosassa, Florida, native will compete in the K&N Pro Series East in his first year with Rev Racing. Cabre has spent the past five years racing asphalt and dirt sprint cars.

Natalie Decker: A 17-year-old newcomer to the Rev Racing roster from Eagle River, Wisconsin, Decker collected feature wins in limited late models and super late models, as well as earning Rookie and Sportsman of the Year honors in SCAG Midwest Truck Tour. She will compete in the Whelen All-American Series in 2015.

Kenzie Ruston: Entering her third season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and first with Rev Racing, the 22-year-old El Reno, Oklahoma, native is also a member of NASCAR Next, an industry initiative to identify tomorrow’s stars of the sport. Ruston broke her own record in 2014 as the highest finishing female driver in the K&N Pro Series East with a runner-up finish at Iowa Speedway on her way to finishing ninth in points.

Dylan Smith: The 22-year-old Randolph, Vermont, native earned a spot with Rev Racing in the Whelen All-American Series after competing in his own late model last year. The Stewart-Haas Racing employee ran 15 races and finished 38th in the Whelen All-American Series Division I national standings.

Under Rev Racing owner and CEO Max Siegel’s leadership, the development program aligns drivers with a team of executives, athletic directors, crew chiefs and mentors tasked with helping D4D drivers achieve career successes; thus, improving their chances of reaching one of NASCAR’s three national series.

“NASCAR Drive for Diversity goes much deeper than putting drivers behind the wheel of race cars,” Siegel said. “The program is all-encompassing, providing competition, athletic training and professional development opportunities for drivers who have the determination and talent to reach NASCAR’s top levels.”

“We’ve seen this with Larson, Suarez and Wallace Jr., and are excited about the potential of this talented group of drivers.”
