CONCORD, N.C. (August 5, 2013) – As Rev Racing driver, Devon Amos, crossed the finish line at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS) for the last time this summer, he knew he had saved the best for last. Amos, who competed in the 10-week INEX U.S. Legend Cars Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series at CMS scored his best finish, of third, on the closing night of competition, leaving him feeling as though he had accomplished his goals.
“I knew that this year would be a huge learning experience for me and I had a big learning curve ahead of me. My goal was to lead laps, and be competitive, and I think I accomplished that goal.” said Amos. “I’m so thankful for Rev Racing and the Drive for Diversity (D4D) program. I look forward to continuing to learn and develop as a driver.”
Amos moved 1600 miles away from his home of New Mexico to participate in the D4D program, where he is competing in the U.S. Legend Cars Series, and a few Late Model races. The rookie driver, who’s racing in his first season with the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, scored three top-five and five top-10 finishes in ten starts, impressive results for a driver running a new type of car, at an unfamiliar track.
“It’s an amazing opportunity to race for a team who developed drivers such as Kyle Larson and Darrell Wallace Jr.” said Amos. “I’m proud of the success we had this season, but I’m also anxious to get that first win. I have no doubt that it will come as long as we continue to work hard.”
