Concord, NC (September 28, 2016) – After thirteen races and eleven states, Rev Racing will find their way to the final race of the K&N Pro Series East Season at Dover International Speedway, better known as “The Monster Mile.” This monster, “Miles”, built of a concrete one-mile oval with banking of nine degrees on the straightaways and 24 degrees in the turns, has historically presented some of the best moments in NASCAR Drive for Diversity (D4D) history. With multiple wins, pole settings and numerous top-5 and top-10 finishes, D4D present and past drivers have proved themselves at this track. Most recently, Collin Cabre, a rookie driver in the 2015 season, won the season closer at Dover with next to no track time (weather related) or experience at the Speedway. Needless to say, Rev drivers and crew are ready to take on Miles to finish out the season with the same momentum and success.
This weekend, the K&N Pro Series East will close with the Dover 125, on Friday, September 30. This will mark the eighth time since 2004 that Dover International Speedway hosts the final race of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season.
Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) – Cabre, who is currently sitting 6th in points, has steadily been improving in standings each race. With four top-5s and six top-10s this season, Cabre is hungry for the same result he found in 2015. The No. 2 UTI/NTI driver has earned four top-5 finishes in his last six races.
“We are approaching this race the same as last year,” said Cabre. “The car is in a really good spot set-up wise and we are all just eager to hit the track. It looks like rain again this year, so I am fine with just racing if it earns us the same outcome. We experienced some unlucky moments in the beginning of the year, but feel good overall about the growth we have had in the car. I am appreciative to my team and the program for the opportunity. Let’s hope we can bring home the win.”
Ruben Garcia (No. 6 Sunoco Toyota) – Ruben Garcia, sitting 11th in points, approaches this weekend ready to break into the top-10 in standings. Garcia has earned five top-10’s this rookie season. Garcia will drive the No. 6 Sunoco Toyota this weekend and hopes to be part of the historically success the past D4D drivers have found at this track.
Ali Kern (No. 4 Honda Generators Toyota) – Kern, who is currently 13th in points, will drive this year’s 2016 NASCAR Drive for Diversity’s Combine sponsor, Honda Generators, branding on her car this weekend. Kern hopes to add a top finish to her resume as her rookie season will come to a close.
Enrique Baca (No. 42 Rev Racing Toyota) – As Baca and team prepare for Dover, communication will be at the forefront of their track strategy. Baca, entering the No. 42 just two races ago, is challenged with a new track experience, series and crew. This Monterrey, Mexico native is eager to prove himself and garner a solid finish with his team.
Two-lap qualifying for the DOVER 125 will be on Friday, September 30th at 12:35 p.m., followed by the race at 5:00 p.m. Follow @RevRacin on Twitter for live race updates.
