Concord, NC — Rev Racing’s Youth Development Drivers are gearing up to compete in the 2022 U.S. Legend Cars Series as part of the Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway, beginning next Monday, June 13th. The youth development program serves as an entry point into NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program which was started in 2009 by Max Siegel. This year’s selected drivers will compete as year-long members on the team’s roster and will race in several INEX Legend Car events along with Rev Racing.  

Rev Racing will field two drivers from its youth program, both of which are returning from last year’s 2021 roster. Andres Perez de Lara and Justin Campbell were both evaluated on historical success and previous on-track performance with a special focus on growth potential for future opportunities within the Team. The youth development program provides ongoing mentorship and guidance during this critical time in these young drivers careers.

“We continue to use our youth development model to connect with minority and female drivers at the earliest possible age,” said Max Siegel, Owner of Rev Racing. “The sooner we have the opportunity to work with these young athletes, we can support and position them for growth in the sport. We are thrilled to have these returning drivers and anticipate very successful outcomes throughout the season ahead, as they represent the future of NASCAR.”  

Andres Perez de Lara, 17, joins the Rev Racing roster for his second season in 2022. This year, Perez de Lara will again pilot the U.S. Legend Car in the Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway, as well as several other Legend Car events throughout the season. Perez de Lara garnered 2 top 10 finishes in the Shootout this past summer. Perez de Lara also ran in the NASCAR Mexico Challenge Series in 2021 where he garnered a 4th place finish in the Championship point standings.  Perez de Lara has already garnered his first victory of the year at Ecocentro de la Unión Ganadera in the NASCAR Mexico Challenge Series. He will pilot a U.S. Legends Car in the Semi-Pro class for Rev Racing in 2022.   

Justin Campbell, 16, returns for his second season at Rev Racing. Born in Griffin, GA, Campbell got his start in racing at age 10. In 2016, Campbell and his family purchased his first Bandolero and began racing in the Thursday Thunder at Atlanta Motor Speedway’s infield road course. By the end of that first season of Thursday Thunder, Campbell garnered his first victory and has been racing ever since. In 2021, he earned 2 top 10 finishes in the Summer Shootout and will also compete in the Semi-Pro class for Rev Racing in 2022. 

The first round of the Summer Shootout will take place at Charlotte Motor Speedway, beginning on Monday, June 13, at 5 pm E.T. A full schedule of events may be found on charlottemotorspeedway.com.

.


Concord, NCToday, Rev Racing announced the addition of a new partnership in conjunction with NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development driver, Rajah Caruth. The team will partner with the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority through the month of June, in celebration of National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. This sponsorship initiative hopes to bring attention to the archipelago nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as it positions itself as The Caribbean You’re Looking For in vacation destinations. 

Caruth, a second generation Caribbean-American driver, will run the St. Vincent and Grenadines brand on the hood and rear of his No. 6 Chevrolet. This partnership will expand over the next three races of the ARCA Menards Series schedule at Iowa Speedway, Berlin Raceway and Elko Speedway, respectively. 

The alignment with National Caribbean American Heritage Month has been celebrated officially, annually every June since 2006 when the first Presidential Proclamation was issued by President George Bush. This year marks the 16th year of observance of Caribbean Heritage Month. The partnership with the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority is a solid platform to continue the celebration and pay homage to Rajah’s paternal homeland. 

CEO of the Tourism Authority, Glen Beache is happy to support Rajah’s progress in NASCAR and is confident that the partnership will be mutually beneficial and place St. Vincent and the Grenadines top of mind in choice of a Caribbean vacation destination by fans and the NASCAR organization as a whole.

The new sponsorship adds another level of importance to NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program. More than just representing its program participants competitively, it allows each minority driver to showcase their respective heritage in the sport. 

“The fact that I can not only go out and race, but represent where I’m from is really meaningful,” said Caruth. “It means a lot to be a representative of the Caribbean Island, and I can’t wait to make them proud.” 

Caruth and teammate Nick Sanchez will return to action in the Calypso Lemonade 150 at Iowa Speedway this Saturday, June 11, at 8 p.m. CT / 9 p.m. ET. Live TV coverage of the race will be provided by MAVTV. The race will also be covered on a livestream on FloRacing, and at ARCARacing.com.

1-2 Kansas finish drives momentum into the Charlotte race weekend

.


May 27, 2022

Concord, NC — Rev Racing returns to action this Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the General Tire 150. Teammates Nick Sanchez and Rajah Caruth who finished 1st and 2nd respectively at Kansas Speedway, aim to extend their ARCA Menard Series(AMS) lead this week. The team’s performance in Kansas delivered owner Max Siegel his first-ever AMS 1-2 finish. 

Sanchez became the first driver with multiple AMS victories in 2022, by winning at Talladega Superspeedway and Kansas Speedway. Sanchez’s strong drive in Kansas also earned him the Reese’s “Sweet Move of the Race” by slipping past teammate Caruth and a pair of lapped cars. Capitalizing on his season trajectory, Sanchez is focused on achieving optimal performance in Charlotte and beyond. Sanchez will pilot the No. 2 Max Siegel Chevrolet on the 1.5-mile paved oval. 

Sanchez will also be competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) this Saturday, May 28, with BJ McLeod Motorsports. Sanchez, in an announcement last week, expanded his NXS participation with the addition of six races for the remainder of 2022 in conjunction with his AMS schedule. “I’m going to have to make sure I’m ready both physically and mentally for the Xfinity race, but the goal for each race is the same,” said Sanchez. “I’m always ready and I prepare myself to achieve the best performance on the track.” 

Teammate Caruth will pilot the No. 6 Winston Salem State University (WSSU) Chevrolet this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. WSSU is a new partnership alignment for Caruth, where he is currently a student in the Motorsports Management Program. Caruth will also run six NXS races with Alpha Prime Racing in the 2022 season in conjunction with his full-time AMS schedule. 

Caruth continues to demonstrate his consistency this season with his second top 5 finish, adding to the top 10 finish he earned at Talladega Speedway. His performance in Kansas set a new career-best race finish. “After the leader’s wreck we were in a good position for those top finishes,” said Caruth when talking about the 1-2 outcome. Caruth leads the AMS series with an average 5.75 race finish this season. Caruth, along with Daniel Dye, are the only drivers to complete all possible 402 laps so far this season. 

Caruth feels he is prepared for the team’s home race in Charlotte. “I’m ready and want to perform adequately.” It will be exciting for both Sanchez and Caruth who will be together again at Rev Racing’s home track as they continue contending for the 2022 AMS Champion season title.  

Rev Racing is the competition arm of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Program and serves as the NASCAR-supported racing team charged with developing female and minority drivers and pit crew members in the NASCAR development series for future competition at the highest levels.

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.

April 25, 2022

Concord, NC — Rev Racing returned to action this past Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway for the running of the General Tire 200. The ARCA Menards Series (AMS) event sent Rev Racing and Team Chevy Drivers, Nick Sanchez and Rajah Caruth home with a lot to celebrate. 

The race ended nine laps early so Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race could start on time, as teams were informed that the next caution flag would complete the race. Sanchez got aggressive with a three-wide move just before the final caution. He was able to slip through Cory Heim and Bret Holmes to take the lead right before the caution flag waved, declaring the No. 2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet the race winner. 

“They told me the last caution was going to end it, so I got aggressive and positioned myself for the best outcome,” Sanchez said. “I could not be more proud of the Team and the car we prepared for this weekend’s event. As a team, we have a lot of momentum right now. We need to keep pushing and hopefully find ourselves in victory lane multiple times throughout the season.”

This win marked the second AMS victory for Rev Racing, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program and owner, Max Siegel. Sanchez earned his first victory, last year, in a green-white-checkered finish at Kansas Speedway. Sanchez is the only repeat winner in the AMS  other than Cory Heim and Ty Gibbs since September of 2020. Sanchez moved to third in the AMS standings, four points behind Rev Racing teammate and current championship leader Rajah Caruth.

Caruth, driver of the No. 6 Max Siegel Chevrolet, also did not disappoint as the laps unfolded at the second Superspeedway event of the season. With 19 laps left in the race, Caruth capitalized on a push from Daniel Dye, finding himself at the front of the field, leading the first six laps of his AMS rookie season. Caruth ultimately ended the race in sixth place, but left Talladega as the new AMS points leader. He leads the charge by one point, with Daniel Dye following. Caruth also earned the Reese’s Sweet Move of the Race at Talladega and the Bounty Rookie Challenge Race Award. 

Caruth will return to action this Saturday (4.29) in the General Tire 125 at Dover Motor Speedway, in the third ARCA Menards Series East race event of the season. Caruth will play double duty this weekend as he will also participate in the NASCAR Xfinity Series A-Game 200.

Concord, NC — Drivers Rajah Caruth and Nick Sanchez are just a day away from taking on a 150-lap race on the one-mile tri-oval in Avondale, Arizona. The General Tire 150 at Phoenix Raceway, the second race of the 2022 ARCA Menards Series (AMS) season, the first race of the ARCA Menards Series West season and the first event of this year’s Sioux Chief Showdown, is scheduled for this Friday, March 11th.

Both drivers are fresh off the season-opener at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Although Caruth and Sanchez did not garner the results they hoped for, they are laser focused on the remainder of the season. Both are looking to capitalize from their previous experiences at Phoenix and anticipate some top finishes over the weekend. 

Nick Sanchez (No. 2 NTI/UTI Chevrolet): After one race in the AMS, Sanchez is currently 20th in point standings after experiencing a flat late in the race at DIS. Sanchez finished 3rd place in the 2021 AMS point standings with one win at Kansas Speedway and nine top 5s and 13 top 10s. Sanchez, having had some good runs at Phoenix, is certainly looking for redemption to shift the momentum of his season. In his first 2021 Phoenix experience, Sanchez was running comfortably in the top 5 when he got caught up with lap traffic and did not complete the race due to extensive damage from the accident. His second experience yielded a 4th place finish.  

Sanchez will also make his debut in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this weekend, running the No. 5 Chevy Camaro with BJ McLeod Motorsports. 

Rajah Caruth (No. 61 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet): Rajah Caruth making his second start at Phoenix, earned a top 10 finish in his first time at this track. Caruth finished 3rd in the ARCA Menards Series East 2021 point standings with two top 5s and five top 10s. He is currently 11th in the 2022 AMS point standings. 

The General Tire 150 is set for this Friday at 5:30 p.m. MT / 7:30 p.m. ET, at Phoenix Raceway. The race will be shown live on MAVTV Motorsports Network with a live stream available on FloRacing. A radio broadcast of the race can be heard on MRN / SiriusXM (XM channel 391, online channel 981) / ARCARacing.com.

Chevrolet Announces Partnership with Rev Racing, Supporting NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program

Agreement provides engineering and marketing support for Rev Racing, along with driver and pit crew development

INDIANAPOLIS – Chevrolet is proud to announce a multi-year engineering and marketing partnership with Rev Racing, the competition arm of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program, which is responsible for developing female and ethnically diverse drivers along with pit crew members for future competition at NASCAR’s highest levels.  

“We are proud to partner with Rev Racing to support the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program in the development of diverse drivers and team members,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President, Performance & Motorsports. “This agreement will enable Rev Racing to leverage Chevrolet’s competition engineering resources, including the new General Motors Charlotte Technical Center.” 

Rev Racing is co-owned by Max Siegel and Jennifer Satterfield-Siegel. Max oversees management of the entire program, including being the exclusive manager of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program. As owners of Rev Racing, the Siegels took the program to new heights, advancing it from a fledgling operation to a juggernaut on the racetrack. 

“Through the years we have continued to feel really proud of the driver alumni and pit crew graduates who have come through our program,” said Max Siegel. “These individuals are great examples of our mission in action and our goals being met. Chevrolet is a strategic partner and supporter of Rev Racing. They are in alignment with our mission of providing opportunities and developing these young drivers to the next level. I could not be more thrilled to see the heightened level of impact we can create together.”

Additionally, Chevrolet will partner in the development of drivers Rajah Caruth and Nick Sanchez. This is Caruth’s fourth season participating in the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program. Sanchez scored his first win in the ARCA Menards Series in 2021 and finished third overall in the point standings. Both drivers will run a full ARCA Menards schedule and a limited number of NASCAR Xfinity Series races in 2022.

Rev Racing partnered with NASCAR in 2009 to operate the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Program, which was founded to develop and train female and ethnically diverse drivers and crew members.

Rev Racing Gears Up for Florence’s South Carolina 400

Rev Racing Gears Up for Florence’s South Carolina 400

November 18, 2021

Concord, NC — NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Driver’s Lavar Scott, Regina Sirvent and Isabella Robusto, will attempt to qualify and compete in the 2nd Annual South Carolina 400 Charlie Powell Memorial Race (SC400) this weekend, November 19th-20th.

There are more than 50 entries for the SC400, which was formerly known as the “Myrtle Beach 400.” As the team prepares for this weekend’s competition, this will also mark the final race of the season for Rev Racing. As the drivers reflect on the year, they are definitely looking to finish strong. 

Lavar Scott, driver of the No. 34 NASCAR Technical Institute and Vizionary Wealth Management Chevrolet will attempt his first official start at Florence Motor Speedway. Earlier this year, Scott ran only 10 practice laps before the race was cancelled due to inclement weather. The last time Scott drove the No. 34 for Rev Racing, he garnered his first Late Model win of his career at Hickory Motor Speedway on September 11th. 

“I am excited to get back to the track this weekend at Florence,” says Lavar Scott. “We are eager to lay some practice laps down to help us prepare for qualifying. It is a robust field of drivers, so we are focused on being as competitive as possible and finishing the season out strong.”

Regina Sirvent, driver of the No. 10 Eibach Springs Chevrolet will aim to make her fifth start this weekend at Florence Motor Speedway. Sirvent previously competed in twin races in both July and August, garnering a top-10 finish. 

Isabella Robusto, driver of the No. 55 Honda Generators Chevrolet, has yet to compete at Florence this season. She is, however, no stranger to the track having earned an impressive 2nd place finish in October of 2020. 

The SC 400 will offer two practice days followed by Saturday’s qualifying and race activities. Over 50+ Late Model Stocks will compete to make the field of 35 in the Charlie Powell Memorial SC400, with qualifying being set for 2:15 p.m ET. Pre-race festivities begin at 4:15 p.m. ET. Racing activities are set to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET, with the 150-lap Late Model feature to follow later that evening.

October 22, 2021

Concord, NC — Rev Racing and NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development driver Nick Sanchez (No. 2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet SS) signed a multi-race Xfinity Series deal with BJ McLeod Motorsports this week, another triumph in a historic season for Rev Racing and Drive for Diversity Program drivers and alumni.

Sanchez is enjoying a solid rookie year in the ARCA Menards Series, scoring eight Top 5’s and 12 Top 10’s through 19 races this season. This impressive performance prompted the desire to take the next step in his racing career and garnered the acceptance of long-time NASCAR driver/team owner BJ McLeod, who offered the Miami-born driver a multi-race deal for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.

“While racing full-time in ARCA, Rev assisted me in looking for opportunities to move up the NASCAR ranks,” stated Sanchez. “I met with many teams and personnel, and almost all of them directed us to BJ McLeod Motorsports. After meeting with BJ himself, I feel like we both share the same collective goals for next year. I’m excited to learn and get the most out of our car’s performance and get some good finishes for myself and the team.”

With this signing, Sanchez becomes the second 2021/2022 Drive for Diversity Program driver to announce an Xfinity Series contract this year—the first one being his teammate Rajah Caruth, who signed a multi-race deal with newly-formed Alpha Prime Racing back in August. Caruth, who started his racing career through iRacing in 2017, shared some words regarding his teammate’s announcement.

“I am extremely happy for Nick,” Caruth commented. “Everyone involved has been working extremely hard to get this deal done, so to finally see the fruits of Nick’s labor pay off is awesome. I do not know his schedule yet, but I hope we get the opportunity to race against each other. It’s going to be fun!”

Caruth competed in the ARCA Menards Series East this season, notching two Top-5’s and five Top-10’s in eight races, earning him a P3 finishing position in the season points standings. Caruth also has two victories at Hickory Motor Speedway and one at Tri-County Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series (NAAPWS) this year. 

Sanchez and Caruth are not the only drivers who have had impressive seasons with Rev Racing this year. Lavar Scott scored first career wins in the NAAPWS and in the NASCAR FB y Bohn Mikel’s Trucks in Mexico, and Regina Sirvent was awarded the Young Driver Award at the 2021 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Awards.

Superseding Rev Racing, many Drive for Diversity Program alumni have been having historic seasons in NASCAR in 2021. 2012 program alum ARCA Menards Series East (formerly K&N Pro Series East) Champion Kyle Larson has been dominating in the NASCAR Cup Series, scoring eight wins, the NASCAR Cup Series Regular Season Championship, and a spot in the Championship-4 race at Phoenix Raceway in November. 2010-2011 Drive for Diversity Program alum Bubba Wallace became a NASCAR Cup Series winner at Talladega, becoming the first African American to win in the Cup Series since Wendell Scott in 1964. Also racing at NASCAR’s highest level, Daniel Suarez is in his fifth season in the NASCAR Cup Series and his first driving for the new Trackhouse Racing team co-owned by Justin Marks and music star, Pitbull.

The program has continued to graduate several of its drivers into the National series over the past several years, most recently including NASCAR Xfinity driver Ryan Vargas, Ernie Francis Jr., Natalie Decker and several others. 

“We are proud of the accomplishments of our program and these drivers,” said Rev Racing owner Max Siegel. “Nick and Rajah are current examples of our proven programmatic success. Our goal continues to be focused on advancement and preparation for the next stages of these young drivers’ careers. We see the direct impact of the opportunities we are awarding our minority and female drivers and look forward to the continued growth and bright future of our program.”

Additional details regarding race schedules and partners for Sanchez and Caruth will be announced in the near future. Both drivers will also run the full 2022 season with Rev Racing in the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) in conjunction with their expanded National series schedules. Sanchez and Caruth are set to hit the track this Saturday, October 23, at Kansas Speedway for the Reese’s 150, the final race of the 2021 AMS season. The race will air on MAVTV and TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold starting at 6 p.m. CT.

“The significance of this next step is very meaningful for me,” said Nick Sanchez. “It’ll obviously be my first time participating in one of the top 3 series of NASCAR, which is something I’ve always dreamed of ever since I started racing. Since the day I first met BJ, we’ve always been on the same page. We both share the same collective goals for next year and I feel he and his team have made significant strides in performance each year they’ve been in the (Xfinity) Series. My main goal next year is to learn and get the most out of the car’s performance, hopefully yielding some good finishes for myself and the team.”
