Concord, NC (June 29, 2015) – Rev Racing returns to the track in Columbus this Fourth of July, with a whole different kind of fireworks. Crew Chief John Wolf returned with a victory in Columbus last year with former Rev Racing driver Sergio Peña. His exceptional knowledge of the track from last year definitely gives his driver, Devon Amos, along with the rest of the Rev Racing team some edge over the competition.
All eyes will be on Jay Beasley after an impressive top-5 finish at Bowman Gray and again last week at Langley.
“I’m excited,” Beasley said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun. I feel that if we can qualify in the top-5 we’ll be right there going for the win, or at the very least a top-3 finish. “
Beasley’s Crew Chief, Skip Eyler, won in Columbus two years ago, and also feels confident in keeping the victories going.
“I’m very excited going back to Columbus. Rev has a very good track record there,” Eyler said. “The most important thing to do is to capitalize on the momentum of the 42 car. We just have to go up there with a positive outlook and try to bring home another victory for Rev.”
Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Toyota) – This won’t be Ruston’s first time at the Columbus Motor Speedway. Last year, she participated in the JEGS 150 in Columbus. Unfortunately, a late-in-the-race misfortune at the end of a lead lap just before the final restart, took Ruston’s chance at a checkered flag. However, having ran the track before, Ruston and Rev a definite advantage for the race.
Devon Amos (No. 6 Toyota) – Amos held the 14th spot last week at Langley. After finishing the Hall of Fame 150 in 6th, he hopes to bring some of that momentum into the NAPA 150. This is the first time Amos takes on the Columbus track. He hopes to brings home a strong finish for Rev.
Collin Cabre (No. 2 Toyota) – Cabre also hopes to ignite some fireworks of his own with a higher finish in the NAPA 150. Cabre races his Late Model car at Hickory this weekend, aiding him in his preparation for Columbus on the Fourth. This will be his first race at Columbus Motor Speedway.
Two-lap qualifying begins at 6:00 p.m. followed by the driver autograph session at 8:00 p.m. The NAPA 150 race begins at 8:45 pm EST.
