2018 Drive for Diversity Development Team roster announced

Daytona Beach, Fla. – The youngest NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series champion. The youngest driver to win four Trans-Am championships. And the 2016 Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award winner.

As evidenced by the six drivers announced as part of the 2018 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Team, the roster for next year is stacked with emerging young talent ready to make their mark in the sport. The drivers represent a cross-section of backgrounds – both in terms of heritage and driving disciplines – and all share a common goal: To reach the highest levels of NASCAR.

“What we’re seeing with these six drivers is a group of very talented racers who have shown the ability on and off the track to excel at the next level,” said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “With an increased focus on seat time and competition among the drivers, we’re looking forward to watching them perform next season.”

“We are thrilled with the level of talent that applied for the program, were invited to the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine and, ultimately, the six who were selected to drive for Rev Racing in 2018,” said Max Siegel, CEO of Rev Racing. “As we’ve seen the program evolve over the years and produce wins and champions, and help elevate drivers such as Daniel Suárez, Kyle Larson and Darrell Wallace Jr. to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, these drivers have the ability and potential to carry that legacy forward.”

The 2018 NASCAR Drive for Diversity roster includes a pair of drivers who have been part of the NASCAR Next program, an industry initiative designed to spotlight the sport’s rising stars.

The new class features the following drivers:

• Chase Cabre, 20, Tampa, Florida. Cabre finished sixth in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship standings and was runner-up for Sunoco Rookie of the Year. He won the 21 Means 21 Pole Award twice and recorded four top-five finishes. He will return to compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and will also race a Late Model in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.

• Ernie Francis Jr., 19, Dania, Florida. Francis has already locked up his fourth Trans Am Series championship, becoming the youngest driver in series history to do so. He has 32 Trans Am Series wins – the most in series history – and 15 Pirelli World Challenge victories. Francis will be a development driver with Rev Racing, running road-course events in the K&N Pro Series East and select Late Model events, as well as testing, as he transitions to oval-track racing.

• Rubén García Jr., 21, Mexico City, Mexico. García will return to Rev Racing for his third season. The 2015 NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series champion finished fifth in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East this year and is third in the PEAK Mexico Series standings with one race remaining. The NASCAR Next graduate will join Cabre in the K&N Pro East in addition to racing in the Late Model.

• Nick Sanchez, 16, Homestead, Florida. Sanchez finished fifth in the 10-race Bojangles Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Rev Racing’s Legends Car program last year, and will move up to the team’s full-time Late Model in 2018. Sanchez had a win among five podium finishes in the Summer Shootout.

• Ryan Vargas, 17, La Mirada, California. Vargas won the Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award in 2016 as the highest finishing multicultural or female driver in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I. He was runner-up for NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Josten’s Rookie of the Year for California in 2016 while racing at Irwindale and Bakersfield’s Kern County Raceway Park and the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This season, he scored a pair of wins this year to finish third in the state standings and 16th in the national standings. Vargas will drive in the third full-time K&N Pro Series East car and also race in the Late Model.

• Isabella Robusto, 13, Fort Mill, South Carolina. Robusto will anchor Rev Racing’s Youth Driver Program as she returns to the team to drive in the Legends car. Robusto will be one of four youth development drivers, with the remaining three to be announced at a later date. She was third overall at the Bandolero Winter Nationals and was the South Carolina Legends Young Lions champion in 2016 and was third overall in points in the Bojangles Summer Shootout Series in 2015.

NASCAR Drive for Diversity aligns drivers with a team of executives, athletic directors, crew chiefs and mentors tasked with helping them achieve career successes, and thus improving their goal of reaching one of the three NASCAR national series.

The 2017 NASCAR season was another banner year for NASCAR Drive for Diversity alumni, as three graduates made a major impact at the sport’s highest level.

Kyle Larson earned four wins to establish his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing team as a force in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. A contender for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors, Daniel Suárez this year became the first Mexican-born driver to compete full-time in the sport’s premier series, and in February raced in his first DAYTONA 500. Last month, Darrell Wallace Jr. was announced as the new driver of Richard Petty Motorsports’ iconic No. 43 Ford for the 2018 season.

In addition, the fourth driver will compete full-time in the Late Model program and serve as an alternate for the K&N Pro Series program.

In an expanded role for next year, Rev Racing will also select an additional four youth drivers at a future combine. Those drivers will participate in the organization’s expanded Legends and Bandelaros program next season. This past season, Rev Racing had two Legends cars in the Bojangles Summer Shootout.

Rev Racing Unveils Paint Schemes for Busch North Throwback at Thompson

NASCAR Drive for Diversity Drivers Giving Recognition to Two Historic Moments

Concord, NC (July 3, 2017) – Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (TSMP) unveiled their 2017 short track schedule in December, announcing the return of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. After an eight-year absence for the KNPSE, the upcoming race will celebrate the series’ New England roots and the rich history of the division with the Busch North Throwback 100 on Saturday, July 8.

To mark the occasion, Rev Racing will honorably wrap two of their cars in the former paint schemes of Rogelio López and Tommy Houston.

“We love the opportunity to pay respect and celebrate those who have paved the way in this sport,” said Jefferson Hodges, Rev Racing Director of Competition. “It is important that we continue to bridge the gap between these racing generations. Knowledge continues to be power and the more we can expose our drivers to these momentous moments and icons the more successful they will be as they in advance in this sport.”

The No. 03 Telmex Toyota will be piloted by Mexico City’s Rubén García Jr.,as he pays tribute to Lopez. Lopez, a Aguascalientes, Mexico native won the 2006 Desafío Corona Series (now NASCAR Peak Mexico Series) championship, and came to the United States to drive the No. 03 Telmex/Lucas Oil Dodge in the NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch East Series for the 2007 season. On July 22nd, 2007, Lopez won with this particular paint scheme at The Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, TN. He became the first Mexican-born driver to win on an oval in the series and in NASCAR, beating current NASCAR Monster Energy Cup driver, Joey Logano.

“It’s an honor for me to be part of this throwback race for the first time in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East,” said Rogelio López. “It has been 10 years since I won in Nashville and I still remember the win like it was yesterday. I want to thank everyone at Rev Racing and Rubén for driving the 03 car (Dave Davis Motorsports). It was an unforgettable race and I am excited to be able to attend the upcoming event in support of Ruben and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program.”

Teammate Chase Cabre will be paying tribute to Tommy Houston. Houston (born on January 29, 1945) is a retired NASCAR Busch Series driver, now called the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Over his career, Houston helped that series grow throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Houston had 417 starts, 24 wins and 123 top fives.

Houston’s son, Andy, spotter for current NASCAR Monster Energy Series Cup Driver Austin Dillion, shared the paint scheme with his dad.

“I showed my dad the drawing last night! He really liked it. He won a K&N race (Busch North) at Stafford in that same paint scheme! He said seeing that paint scheme brings back a lot of good memories and hopes it brings Rev Racing some good luck!”

Team Rev Racing is ready to make history of their own this coming weekend, while capitalizing on the momentum from this past weekend’s race at Berlin Raceway. Driver Chase Cabre earned a third place finish and teammate Jay Bealsey garnered a fourth place finish, the Coca-Cola Move of the Race  and the Brembo Brake Through Challenge. García and Collin Cabre rounded out the top-10 with an eighth and 10th place finish.

NASCAR Drive for Diversity Drivers Pay a Visit to St Jude

Concord, NC (June 2, 2017) – This weekend, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity drivers will head to Memphis International Raceway for the first time ever to participate in the K&N Pro Series East and visit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened to more than 80 percent today and families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

“We love partnering with organizations to help bring awareness to their specific cause. Our team and drivers are in a unique position to be seen and heard by a great number of people,” said Jefferson Hodges, Rev Racing Director of Competition.  “Rev Racing is an organization that strongly believes in providing inclusion and opportunities. Being able to put as many eyes as possible on these children and their families is exciting for us and hopefully beneficial to St. Jude.”

Series sponsor K&N has also provided tickets to over 50 St. Jude staff and families to attend the Memphis 125 race on Saturday at Memphis International Raceway. One family will also have the opportunity to spend time in the infield with the drivers, receive a hauler tour and meet NASCAR personnel.

“It’s a privilege to engage St Jude in this way and to provide this opportunity to families and staff through our organization,” said Hodges. “It will be a special race. I hope we can continue to be an avenue for exposure and provide support to these amazing institutions.”

The Memphis 125 race will begin 5:50 p.m. on June 3rd.  Questions can be directed to cgormal@maxsiegelinc.com.

Causey Makes History at South Boston Speedway

Concord, NC (May 22, 2017) – Macy Causey, 16-year-old resident of York County, VA, won at South Boston Speedway in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division (LMSC) this past Saturday night. Causey, the youngest member in the history of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program, earned her first career LMSC victory, and became the first female to win a LMSC race at South Boston Speedway.

Causey survived an early race mishap when then-leader Lee Pulliam’s motor expired, bringing out the red flag for a lengthy clean-up during the first LMSC race of the Bojangles Twin 75s. Causey eventually went on to hold off Brandon Pierce in a two-lap dash to the finish. This highly competitive race had seven lead changes among five drivers. It took an hour and 23 minutes to complete the 75-lap race, with six cautions and two red flags. Causey’s teammate, Madeline Crane, unfortunately was part of a late race caution while running 4th and was unable to finish the first twin or compete in the second.

During this first race, Causey managed to hold off three NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champions, including Peyton Sellers (one-time national champion), Phillip Morris (four-time national champion), and Lee Pulliam (three-time national champion). Sellers, Morris, and Pulliam also combine for five South Boston Speedway track championships.

“It feels amazing,” said Macy Causey. “I’m super excited. I started crying during my interview in Victory Lane. I didn’t know what to do.”

Causey is the granddaughter of Diane Teel, the first woman to win a NASCAR-sanctioned race and the first woman from Virginia recognized in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

“To see where NASCAR was when I was racing to now and watching my grandbaby win her first ever late model race is hard to put in words,” said Diane Teel. “Macy has done something so great that I think it will take awhile for her to understand how big of a deal this was. To win at a place like South Boston with all of its history is so overwhelming for all of us to take in right now. And, she did it the right way without wrecking people to win. That’s what was the best part for me.”

Causey and her Rev Racing team finished the second Twin in 5th position after being inverted to an 8th place start, due to winning the first Twin. Causey and Crane will be back in action at Hickory Motor Speedway next Saturday, May 27th.

Rev Racing and the Autism Society of East TN team up at Bristol Motor Speedway

Concord, NC (April 19, 2017) – For the second year in a row, Rev Racing will partner with the Autism Society of East TN in honor of Autism Awareness month. Rev Racing is more than excited to continue to carry out this mission. NASCAR has been a long-time supporter of Autism Speaks, the national organization for the cause. With this partnership, Rev Racing hopes to bring further awareness to this important subject.

A group from Autism Society of East TN, including staff, parents and children, will join Rev drivers at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 22nd. Children will meet with drivers, sign autographs, be up close and personal with the race cars, and have opportunities for photographs. Rev Racing will also run the organization’s logo on the hood of No. 42 car, manned by driver Jay Beasley. NASCAR has generously provided tickets to the kids, parents and directors of the organization so they can attend the race after the meet and greet.

“I feel extremely honored to be running the decal of the Autism Society of East TN on the hood of my car,” said Beasley. “Having the ability to bring awareness to the fans and put smiles on these kids faces is extremely rewarding.”

Both groups welcome these partnerships, as exposure and education assist in advancements for this cause every day. “The timing is perfect as April is Autism Awareness month and we just launched our new Autism Community Center at Beeson Hall in Johnson City,” said Melissa Keeler, Board Member of Autism Society of East TN. “We are providing educational, social and supportive services to anyone, child or adult, affected by autism at this facility. The Autism Society of East TN is very happy to partner with Rev Racing to promote autism awareness and acceptance in the local community.”

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person’s lifetime. It is part of a group of pervasive developmental disorders known as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) that significantly affect how a person perceives the world, interacts with others, and communicates. It is estimated that as many as 1 out of every 68 children born today will be diagnosed with some form of ASD.

“It’s a privilege to be a part of Autism Awareness Month in this way and to provide this opportunity to families and children through Rev Racing,” said Siegel. “It will be a special race. I hope we can continue to be an avenue for exposure to racing and young people who are fulfilling their goals, like our drivers.”

Rev Racing strives to build awareness among various causes throughout each season. “We love partnering with organizations to help bring about awareness. Our team and drivers are in a unique position to be seen and heard by a great deal of people,” said Max Siegel, Rev Racing Owner and CEO. “Rev Racing is an organization that strongly believes in providing inclusion and opportunities. Being able to expose these children and their families to opportunities in the racing industry is exciting for us and hopefully inspiring to them.”

The Rev Racing drivers will participate in the Zombie Auto, beginning at 4:00 pm on April 22nd. Questions can be directed to, cgormal@maxsiegelinc.com.
