Concord, NC (April 2, 2015) – After an extended break following the inaugural race, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to action this coming Saturday for the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 at Greenville Pickens Speedway. Though Rev Racing competed in the Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 with a completely different roster last season, the team witnessed one driver finish in the top-5 and three finish in the top-10. Needless to say, this year’s foursome has some big shoes to fill.
Leading the way for Rev Racing is none other than veteran Kenzie Ruston. After kicking off her season and Rev Racing career with a top-10 finish, momentum for the 2015 season is already on Ruston’s side. In both races at Greenville Pickens Speedway last season, Ruston finished twelfth. Therefore, Ruston’s goal this time around is to finish 10th or better in order to continue solidifying her growth as a drivers.
However, Ruston hasn’t been the only driver preparing for this weekend’s race. Teammates Collin Cabre, Jay Beasley, and Devon Amos have been diligently preparing themselves over the seven week intermission. Every day has been a matter of improving through physical training with Coach Phil Horton, collaborating with their crew members on their K&N cars, or mentoring the Whelen All-American Series drivers at their races.
Of the aforementioned trio, Beasley is the only driver to have competed at Greenville Pickens speedway. In his previous two stints, Beasley was unable to finish better than 14th. However, things are different for Beasley this year. He’s more experienced and has a different crew chief. And the Las Vegas native is adamant that those two factors will make a drastic difference.
“Skip is going to have my car dialed in. Although I’m not a fan of the long break we’ve had, it’s given Skip and I a chance to really discuss our strategy and what we need to focus on for the upcoming race. My crew and set-up are drastically different from last year. And the hard work that Skip and Richard have put into my car has really allowed my confidence to grow and I couldn’t be more appreciative and excited for Greenville,” said Beasley. Two-lap qualifying begins at 6:00pm, followed by the on-track autograph session at 7:00pm. The Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet 150 will begin at 8:00pm EST.
