Concord, NC (Apr 7, 2015) – Saturday night’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at Greenville Pickens proved to be heartbreaking for the Rev Racing team. Though each of the drivers put in a valiant effort, some unfortunate bad luck prevented the drivers from being able to finish better than 15th.
Though he ultimately finished 20th, Beasley was only a few laps away from his first top-10 of the season. With the intent of conserving his equipment, Beasley found himself fluctuating between 15th and 20th place for much of the race. However with 30 laps to go, Beasley took off. He was passing opponents left and right until he found himself inside of the top-10 and only a few laps from cracking the top-5. However, with only a few laps to go, sparks began flying from the #42. It became apparent that while Beasley was advancing through the pack, he had caused too much damage to the vehicle and a bent fender had sliced his rear left tire. Beasley was forced to pit for a tire change, sending him to the rear of the group where he eventually finished 20th.
Beasley’s teammate Ruston had a solid night performance wise, although luck didn’t happen to be on her side Saturday night. Despite a fearless driving effort, the El Reno, Oklahoma native began and finished the race in 14th place. However, this was due solely to being spun-out mid-way through the race at no fault of her own. Ruston was trying to pass a car that had been lapped 3 or 4 times. When she checked up going into a turn, the person behind her did not follow suit and and spun her out. This sent Ruston to the back of the pack and she spent the rest of the race making up for lost ground.
The remaining Rev Racing teammates Collin Cabre and Devon Amos had similar bad luck and finished 15th and 19th respectively. However, with only two weeks until the next race, the Rev Racing team will been able to redeem itself soon enough.
