Building on momentum, Rev Racing looks for continued success in Kansas
May 13, 2022
Concord, NC — Rev Racing returns to action this Saturday at Kansas Speedway, in the fourth ARCA Menards Series(AMS) event of the season. Building off early-season momentum, both Rajah Caruth and Nick Sanchez are anticipating successful outcomes in this weekend’s Dutch Boy 150 and beyond.
There is no denying that Chevrolet drivers, Caruth and Sanchez, have proved they are major contenders for the 2022 AMS Championship season title. According to ARCA’s most recent Pit Box review, “The top two drivers in the AMS standings are Rev Racing teammates Rajah Caruth and Nick Sanchez.” Sanchez is coming off of his first 2022 win at Talladega Speedway, and second career AMS win. Caruth, although still looking to earn his first AMS trip to victory lane, currently leads Sanchez by a four-point delta in the standings.
For the first time in his racing career, Caruth will enter this weekend’s event as the AMS leader. Caruth also made history post-Talladega, as the first African-American driver to lead the point standings in the AMS history.
“Being the points leader is a pretty cool feat,” said Rajah Caruth. “Although it’s still very early in the season, it’s just a preview of what both this #6 Chevrolet team and I are capable of. To be the first Black driver to lead the Series in points is a true honor and I hope to continue to be a good representative for those that look like me both nationally and globally.”
Sanchez is no stranger to Kansas Speedway, having earned his first ARCA Menards Series win and trip to victory lane in the 2021 season finale. This will be his third trip to Kansas competing on the 1.5-mile paved oval and is eager to build off his momentum from Talladega.
“Each race presents the same goal for me,” said Sanchez. “No matter what track we’re on, I treat every track the same in terms of preparation. Rev excels at 1.5-mile tracks, so we are in a good position to capitalize and hopefully find ourselves in victory lane for the second time this season.”
Sanchez, announced today, that he will pick up six NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) races for the remainder of 2022 in conjunction with his AMS schedule. Sanchez made his Xfinity Series debut with B.J. McLeod Motorsports on March 12, 2022, at Phoenix Raceway in the United Rentals 200 earlier this season. Teammate Caruth, will also run six NASCAR Xfinity Series races with Alpha Prime Racing in the 2022 season. Both drivers plan to return to Kansas Speedway in September to compete in the NXS in the Kansas Lottery 300.
The ARCA race at Kansas Speedway will take place this Saturday, May 14, at 2 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by FOX Sports 1. Coverage will also be available via live stream on the Fox Sports App, a live radio broadcast on MRN / SiriusXM (XM channel 391, online channel 981), and at ARCARacing.com.
