Rev Racing carries momentum as they prepare for the road course at Watkins Glen


Concord, NC — Rev Racing certainly made the most of their most recent trip to Michigan International Speedway on August 6th. Chevrolet driver Nick Sanchez earned his third win of the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) season and his teammate Rajah Caruth finished in sixth, respectively. This Friday, the team will take on the 11 turns at the historic 2.45 mile Watkins Glen road course in Watkins Glen, New York, for the thirteenth round of the AMS season. 

Sanchez’s third win came off of his brilliant defensive driving against Corey Heim and Daniel Dye. He capitalized on his restarts throughout the race, and charged his way up the field to take his third win of the season. “We held them off at the end of the race and it feels good to win in that way,” said Nick Sanchez. “Strategy came into play, as we did not have the same speed as some of the other front-runners.”

With victories in Talladega, Kansas City, and Michigan, Sanchez has shown that the driver creates the difference in late race battles to capitalize on the win. He also took the lead in the AMS standings as just 9 points separate the top 3 contenders. “It’s nice to have a points cushion, but I’m still focusing on my driving and getting better each race. We can’t check-up. These final races are extremely critical to meet the ultimate goal, winning the championship.” 

Sanchez will pilot the No. 2 Gainbridge Chevrolet at Watkins Glen. He finished 8th in last seasons visit to The Glen.  “I do believe we will have a much better shot at Watkins Glen from a speed perspective,” said Sanchez. “I’m looking forward to Friday’s race and seeing what we can do.”

Teammate, Caruth, is ready to take on his second road course this year and is preparing to improve from his previous experience at Mid-Ohio. “I’m excited to see how I’ll do at another road course,” said Caruth. “It will show how good my preparation is or how much I need to improve.”

Caruth maintains a similar routine for preparing for races, which has been a critical factor in his consistent performance all year, keeping him in contention for the championship. “I think getting time in at another road course will help me overall.” With the end of the season coming soon, Caruth remains in the hunt for his first win in ARCA. “I’ve got to figure out what I was doing at the start of the year, to get back in my groove.” Caruth will pilot the No. 6 Gainbridge/Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet this weekend.

Caruth is also coming off his second Camping World Truck Series race. He finished 27th after qualifying 28th at Richmond Raceway. This rookie driver has continued to make his name known and aims to leave his mark throughout the different series that also include Trucks and Xfinity. “This year has been a dream. I am extremely grateful for each and every opportunity I have been given,” said Caruth.

The General Tire Delivers 100 will take place Friday, August 19, at 6:00 p.m ET. Live television coverage of the race will be provided by FS1. There will be a  live stream of the race on the Fox Sports App, and a live radio broadcast will be on MRN/Sirius XM (XM channel 391, online channel 981) and at
