Another Week Of Top Ten Finishes For Rev Racing At Hickory Motor Speedway
CONCORD, NC (May 29, 2012) Rev Racing’s NASCAR Whelen All-American drivers, Trey Gibson and Mackena Bell continued their forward moving momentum, on Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway, with a pair of top ten finishes.
After a 10th place starting position in the 100-lap feature, Trey Gibson, driver of the No. 2 Lithium Pros Toyota Camry, was able to push his way into the top five before the halfway point of the race. While his teammate, Mackena Bell, was able to move from 14th starting position to seventh.
Continuing on his forward push, Gibson weaved his way into third on lap 60, with Bell following in her No. 4 Toyota Racing Development Camry in seventh.
With just 10 laps remaining in this race, Gibson’s No. 2 Lithium Pros Toyota Camry was running down the race leader, Keith Bumgarner. Pulling to the inside of Bumgarner with just six laps to go, Gibson looked like he would pull off a win, but came up a car length short and crossed the finish in second with teammate, Mackena Bell, holding steady with a seventh place finish.
Although hoping for the win, Gibson continues to be blown away by the performance of his Lithium Pros Toyota Camry and hard working Rev Racing crew.
“I used my tires up early in this race,” said Gibson. “I just didn’t have enough left at the end to get the win, but, it was a great team effort tonight. My Lithium Pros Toyota Camry ran great all night and we’ve been very consistent the past few weeks. I know it’s only a matter of time before we have the next win here.”
Rev Racing teammates, Trey Gibson and Mackena Bell, will return to Hickory Motor Speedway on June 16 for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series event.
