Rev Racing Announces Brad Means as the Crew Chief of the No. 6
Concord, NC — Rev Racing, officially, announced the driver of the No. 6 Chevrolet will have a new crew chief for the remainder of the 2022 season. Brad Means joined Rev Racing mid-season and will work with Rajah Caruth in the ARCA Menards Series.
Means has spent over 28 years in the racing industry. He is the son of Jimmy Means, who competed at NASCAR’s top level from 1976 through 1993. Mean’s background offers an expanded perspective, bringing driver and crew experience to the team. Means drove in the Hooters Pro Cup Series and NASCAR K&N Series between 1997 and 2014.
Throughout his career, Means has always enjoyed the challenge of making cars perform better and finding innovative ways to go faster on track. He got his start building cars at Richard Childress Racing. From there, Means helped various teams in both Cup Series and Truck Series by working independently as a body hanger and in fabrication. Most notably, he helped start the fabrication shop at Robby Gordon Motorsport during their run in the Cup Series.
Means has a long-standing relationship with Rev Racing, as well as strong ties to their manufacturing partner, Chevrolet. His journey with Rev Racing comes full circle as he now has the chance to work with one of Rev’s brightest young stars, Rajah Caruth. Caruth was one of the biggest reasons why Means took the crew chief role. “His talent level is very high,” said Means. “To be able to work with someone who has that ability so early on in their career is really exciting. What he has accomplished in such a short time period is impressive. I look forward to continuing on this trajectory, as we work toward the Championship.”
Means has built cars and helped teams win in each of the NASCAR Series. He now focuses on assisting Rev to win the 2022 ARCA Menard Series Championship. “In ARCA, you have limited practice. So you have to have the best car when you unload. I think executing details on the car and putting in work sets us up to compete for wins.” “Whether it’s designing cars for the Daytona 500 or setting up the No. 2 and No. 6 at Rev, his attention to detail, hard work, and pure love for the sport separate him from the competition,” said Matt Bucher, Director of Competition at Rev Racing.
