For its 5th consecutive year, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity (D4D) Combine will take place in Hampton. A NASCAR-sanctioned initiative, the success of the Drive for Diversity Combine is largely contributed to the support of its partners and year-round sponsors.
D4D partner, Langley Speedway, will host the combine, drivers and officials on October 19th – October 21st. Langley Speedway is a NASCAR-sanctioned track that hosts more than fifty percent of Rev Racing’s Whelen All-American Series races throughout the year. The track currently hosts 11 divisions which alternate running during their Saturday night program: Late Models, Grand Stock, Modifieds, K&N Pro Series East, Legend Cars, Super Street, UCAR, Pro Six, Super Trucks, HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts, Bandoleros, Enduros, and the Whelen Southern Modified Tour.
In addition to the on-track performance evaluations that will take place at Langley Speedway, the participants will be evaluated on physical fitness conducted by pit crew coach Phil Horton at Hampton University.
“Langley Speedway is pleased to continue their relationship with NASACR Drive for Diversity and Rev Racing for the fifth consecutive year,” said Bill Mullis, owner of Langley Speedway. “We again welcome the opportunity to partner with the City of Hampton and Hampton University to showcase these stars of tomorrow,”
Rev Racing’s partnership with Hampton University has extended outside just the use of their facilities. Management at Rev Racing has worked year-round with students in the sports management program as well as the school of business at Hampton. Students and faculty have worked jointly with Rev Racing on research projects, strategies and distribution tactics of the team’s social media platform.
Before hitting the track, combine participants and Hampton students will go through an afternoon media and PR training session at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communication.
Rev Racing and the Drive for Diversity Program continue to look for opportunities to improve the combine and driver experiences, as well as, engage other institutions that hold similar diversity initiatives.
“We are extremely proud of the relationships that we have fostered with our various partners,” said Rev Racing owner, Max Siegel. “We look forward to continuing these relationships and look for areas of growth for many years to come.”
Another destination for the Drive for Diversity Combine is the Boo Williams Sportsplex. This year, the City of Hampton and Bill Mullis will provide NASCAR & Rev Racing with an inaugural catered dinner as an official welcome to the combine and to the city of Hampton, Virginia.
In addition to Langley Speedway, Hampton University, and the Boo Williams Sportsplex Rev Racing and Drive for Diversity would also like to thank NASCAR, Sunoco, Honda Generators, Courtyard Marriot by Hampton, Five Star Bodies, iRacing, Mobil1, Mechanix Wear, Driven Steering, Castle, Racing Radios, 3M, UTI, Max Siegel Inc., Heintz Performance, Fluidyne, L&M Ethanol and Goodyear for their continued support during the combine and the entire NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season. It is through the positive relationships with partners and sponsors that Rev Racing is able to experience success year-in and year-out.
