Rev Racing Back in Action at Bristol Motor Speedway

September 12, 2023

Concord, NC- Rev Racing’s Lavar Scott and Andres Perez De Lara are gearing up for the iconic Bristol Motor Speedway in the Bush’s Beans 200. This event marks the next chapter in the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) along with the championship for AMS East. Scheduled for Thursday, September 14th, the race is kicking off a weekend full of NASCAR racing. The Bristol short track, renowned for its intensity, promises to be a showcase of AMS talent as drivers battle to maintain their lead on the track.

Jamie Jones, ARCA program Director for Rev, expressed his thoughts going into the race weekend. “Bristol is survival of the fittest. My plan is to deliver the fastest cars possible for the duo and qualify up front. If we maintain our lead and watch out for lapped traffic, we’ll finish well.”

However, following a podium finish back home in Mexico, Perez is more determined than ever to pursue his first win of the season in AMS. Taking the wheel of the No. 2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet, Perez aims to demonstrate his prowess in the realm of short-track racing. The young driver, embarking on his inaugural visit to Bristol, expressed his excitement, stating, “Bristol has always been a track I’ve wanted to visit due to its rich history.” When asked about his mindset, Perez affirmed, “Last week was challenging, especially after performing so well in previous races. But we don’t back down, and I’m committed to giving it my all.”

Out of his five starts in the AMS series, Scott has impressively secured a top-five finish four times. Despite a setback during a pit stop that put him a lap down, the driver of the No. 6 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet exhibited unwavering determination by posting the fastest lap times towards the end of the race. Reflecting on the race, Scott shared, “It’s tough knowing we had the car to secure a top-three finish,” adding, “However, we will continue to evolve and improve until we secure that coveted win we all desire. We’re ready for Bristol!”
