Concord, NC – NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Driver Rajah Caruth, 18, notched his third Late Model Stock Car win of the 2021 season with Rev Racing Saturday night at Tri-County Motor Speedway.
After finishing eighth in the first 40-lap feature, Caruth wheeled his No. 6 Sunoco/iRacing Chevrolet to Victory Lane in the second feature race. His teammate, Isabella Robusto, finished seventh in the first feature, but was knocked out of the second 40-lapper after an early-race collision.
Caruth has elevated his stats in every category since his first Late Model win one year ago, collecting six Top 10s, three Top 5s, and two wins on the year in addition to Saturday’s performance. Caruth hopes to carry this momentum into Nashville, where he will pilot the No. 6 NTI/UTI Chevrolet in the ARCA Menards Series East.
“As a team, our Twin 40s were pretty solid,” says Caruth. “Despite having to fight for position, we were able to go from 13th to 8th in the first Twin. Then, we got the pole in the second Twin, and used that to propel ourselves to a win.”
Caruth was selected for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Youth Driver Development Program in 2019, the first driver from a majority iRacing background to be picked for the program. His success earned him a spot on the 2020 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development roster, which led him to compete in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series. In 2021, Caruth is running in both the ARCA Menards Series East and the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series.
Caruth will compete at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, under Rev Racing and owner Max Siegel, in the Crosley Record Pressing 200 presented by Action 24/7 on the .596-mile paved oval at 8:30 p.m. CT / 9:30 p.m. ET. Teammates Lavar Scott and Regina Sirvent will also compete this weekend at Hickory Motor Speedway in the Late Models on Saturday, May 8th.
