1-2 Kansas finish drives momentum into the Charlotte race weekend
May 27, 2022
Concord, NC — Rev Racing returns to action this Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the General Tire 150. Teammates Nick Sanchez and Rajah Caruth who finished 1st and 2nd respectively at Kansas Speedway, aim to extend their ARCA Menard Series(AMS) lead this week. The team’s performance in Kansas delivered owner Max Siegel his first-ever AMS 1-2 finish.
Sanchez became the first driver with multiple AMS victories in 2022, by winning at Talladega Superspeedway and Kansas Speedway. Sanchez’s strong drive in Kansas also earned him the Reese’s “Sweet Move of the Race” by slipping past teammate Caruth and a pair of lapped cars. Capitalizing on his season trajectory, Sanchez is focused on achieving optimal performance in Charlotte and beyond. Sanchez will pilot the No. 2 Max Siegel Chevrolet on the 1.5-mile paved oval.
Sanchez will also be competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) this Saturday, May 28, with BJ McLeod Motorsports. Sanchez, in an announcement last week, expanded his NXS participation with the addition of six races for the remainder of 2022 in conjunction with his AMS schedule. “I’m going to have to make sure I’m ready both physically and mentally for the Xfinity race, but the goal for each race is the same,” said Sanchez. “I’m always ready and I prepare myself to achieve the best performance on the track.”
Teammate Caruth will pilot the No. 6 Winston Salem State University (WSSU) Chevrolet this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. WSSU is a new partnership alignment for Caruth, where he is currently a student in the Motorsports Management Program. Caruth will also run six NXS races with Alpha Prime Racing in the 2022 season in conjunction with his full-time AMS schedule.
Caruth continues to demonstrate his consistency this season with his second top 5 finish, adding to the top 10 finish he earned at Talladega Speedway. His performance in Kansas set a new career-best race finish. “After the leader’s wreck we were in a good position for those top finishes,” said Caruth when talking about the 1-2 outcome. Caruth leads the AMS series with an average 5.75 race finish this season. Caruth, along with Daniel Dye, are the only drivers to complete all possible 402 laps so far this season.
Caruth feels he is prepared for the team’s home race in Charlotte. “I’m ready and want to perform adequately.” It will be exciting for both Sanchez and Caruth who will be together again at Rev Racing’s home track as they continue contending for the 2022 AMS Champion season title.
