Rev Racing and Nick Sanchez Gear up for Martinsville Speedway

Nascar Craftsman Truck Series

April 12, 2023

Concord, NCRev Racing is headed back to pavement, for the Long John Silvers 200 at the iconic Martinsville Speedway, after a weekend competing on dirt. Nick Sanchez made his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS) dirt debut this past weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. After a second stage left rear flat, Sanchez quickly went 4 laps down.  Never giving up, Sanchez battled for the second half of the Weather Guard on Dirt, until the No.2 Gainbridge Chevrolet was back on the lead lap. By the end of the race, with just under ten laps to go, Sanchez garnered a position in the top 20 with a 18th place finish. Sanchez was able to secure the second fastest lap on the last lap of the race and while he would have liked better results he stated “I made the most of it, learned a lot, and in the end finished 18th. We never gave up.” 

Rev Racing and Sanchez are looking forward to Martinsville where the team is back on pavement and hungry for a win after dominating at Texas Motor Speedway, a near win at Atlanta and consistently qualifying in the top 5 of each paved race this season. The half-mile track is much shorter than recent NCTS races, though Sanchez has a bit of experience at the Martinsville. He made his first start at the track in 2022, in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he started 24th, climbed 17 spots, and finished 7th.  

“Each week it is the same goal,” said Sanchez. “We evaluate previous performances and where we can make improvements, we do as much preparation as possible, execute our plan during the race weekend and aim to win every time. We can’t control outside factors, so we have to be 100% at what we can control. I am incredibly energized by the amount of work Danny and the No. 2 team puts in everyday. I am ready to give them what they deserve.”

The Long John Silver’s 200 is scheduled for Friday, April 14th where the NCTS drivers will pilot their vehicles for 200 laps and 105 miles. Martinsville Speedway comes out to just over half a mile in length and is paper clip in shape. Practice starts at 3:00 PM ET, with qualifying taking place 35 minutes later. The green flag will wave at 7:30 PM ET and the race will air on FS1, MRN, and SiriusXM.
