Bryan Ortiz (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota Camry) – Ortiz had a career best finish of third at Bowman Gray Stadium last season, his first time racing there, and also finished third at the Daytona International Speedway short track earlier this year.

CONCORD, N.C. (May 14, 2013) – After battling the weather all evening, Annabeth Barnes, Jack Madrid, and Devon Amos were able to hit the pavement to compete for Rev Racing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series race at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday, May 11th. This was the first late model race for Amos, who took home a seventh place finish, Madrid finished 14th and Barnes came home 19th. All three drivers had two successful practice sessions, and were able to score their best qualifying results of the season thus far. Barnes qualified 12th, Madrid qualified 14th, and Amos qualified 17th, in just his first start. Barnes had a fast car and was running well all night, but was tangled up in an accident in front of her, disappointingly ending her night early. Madrid passed cars throughout the race, moving up to as high as eighth, when contact with the wall left damage to his car and he wasn’t able to get it back up to speed. The next race for Barnes and Madrid with Rev Racing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series will be on Saturday, May 18th, and Motor Mile Speedway.

By: John Tejada, NASCAR Chihuahua, Mexico – Daniel Suárez is definitely enjoying his most recent trip to El Dorado Speedway in Chihuahua, Mexico more than his last visit. In the NASCAR Toyota Series’ inaugural visit to the track in 2012, a suspension problem ended Suárez’s night after 130 laps and left him with a 30th place finish. This time around, the young Monterrey driver turned in his best performance of the season, winning the Chihuahua 240 from the pole position on Sunday and claiming his first victory of 2013 and third of his career. The win continues a recent hot streak by Suárez in the Toyota Series. After opening the season with an 11th place finish in Phoenix, Suárez has now turned in four Top 10 finishes and three consecutive Top 5 efforts (ninth, fourth, fourth and first respectively). The stretch of good driving has propelled the youngster to the top of the leaderboard, just three points behind series leader Antonio Pérez in the unofficial championship standings.
