Concord, NC (June 6, 2017): Each year Rev Racing seeks to obtain the highest quality applicants representing diverse backgrounds and develop them into successful NASCAR drivers. Started by Max Siegel in 2009, Rev Racing also manages a youth racing initiative for kids 8-14 who want to compete in the INEX Legend cars.
Through a several week evaluation process, youth drivers were chosen by recommendation, historical success, and overall driving performance. “As it remains a goal of ours to focus on the growth and development of both our academy-style program and youth participants, we want to connect with these drivers as early as possible,” said Max Siegel, owner of Rev Racing. “The sooner we can start providing the proper guidance to these individuals, the more prepared they are to grow into a different series.”
This year, Rev Racing will offer a Legend car ride to two new-comers, Isabella Robusto and Nicholas Sanchez. Isabella, from Fort Mill, South Carolina, began racing the go-karts in club races at Carolina Motorsports Park. Isabella had immediate success, with several podium finishes. As She gained experience she began racing go-karts at other local tracks and eventually in numerous national series’ like USPKS, WKA, Florida Winter Tour and the F-Series. At the age of eight, and while still racing go-karts, Isabella climbed into a Bandolero and began racing at Concord Motor Speedway and competed in her first of many Summer Shootout’s at Charlotte Motor Speedway as a Beginner Bandit. Within a year Isabella moved up to the Bandit division and raced the Winter Nationals in Orlando, Florida. With other INEX sanctioned races in Charlotte, Atlanta and Virginia, Isabella’s points scored her the 2016 South Carolina Young Lions championship. While Isabella maintains a full karting competition schedule, she is very excited to get back on track in her Legend Car for Summer Shootout 2017.
Nicholas, from Miami, Florida, had a love of car racing from the age of 5 when he went to his first NASCAR truck race at Homestead Miami Speedway. By the age of twelve, he began kart racing in his hometown of Miami. Over the last 3.5 years, he has raced on multiple national circuits including, Rok Cup USA and The Florida Winter Tour. Nicholas has raced throughout the State of Florida at various racetracks competing in over 45 races. He has fourteen top-10 and eleven top-5 finishes in karting classes ranging from Junior, Senior and Shifter. Nicholas one day wants to see his name among notable alumni Kyle Larson, Daniel Suarez, and Darrell Wallace Jr.
Both drivers will compete in the 2017 Summer Shootout, located in Charlotte, NC. The Shootout will begin 6.12.17 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
