After a difficult bout on April 21 in Bristol, the Rev Racing team returned to the track motivated. For a track known for its difficulty to pass, Rev Racing defied the odds and made strides toward a top-10 finish.
Devon Amos, driving the #66 Max Siegel Inc. Toyota, had a solid practice, placing him in the top-15 qualifying positions after final practice. With a few adjustments, Amos was the first to take to the track for qualifying and ultimately secured P18. After the green flag, Amos spent the majority of the race pushing through to the top-15. With ten laps to go, Amos found himself leading the Rev team with a stronghold on P12 ready to break the top-10 by the end of the race. Unfortunately, an interaction between the #7 and the #98 spun #98 in front of Amos, damaging his front body beyond repair and sending him out of the race with only 8 laps to go. Amos finished P25, despite the incident.
Manning the #2 UTI/NTI Toyota, Collin Cabre qualified P31, after finding himself in the in P30 and above positions during practice. However, the placement didn’t deter Cabre as he steadily moved up throughout the race, eventually finding himself in P22 for the checkered flag, a nine-position advancement.
Kenzie Ruston, behind the wheel of the #4 L&M Toyota, wasted little time turning her P22 spot into a position in the top-20. Within 20 laps, Ruston made her way to P19 and placed herself well to continue passing throughout the race. However, a blown left rear tire set Ruston back mid-race as she rushed into pit. Returning P34, Ruston worked her way forward once more and eventually finished nine positions ahead, at P25.
#42 Special Smiles Pediatric Dentistry Toyota driver Jay Beasley also made an outstanding drive, advancing 11 positions before the checkered flag. Qualifying P22, Beasley was one of the brave drivers to ride the top of the track and consistently move up throughout the race. Edging alongside #66 Devon Amos for a period of time, battling between P17 and P18, Beasley eventually rode through the pack and found himself P14 with 30 laps to go. After multiple cautions in the last 30 laps, Beasley used the restart to his advantage and finished P12.
The team continues their K&N Pro Series East season Saturday, May 30 at Bowman Gray Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC for the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150.
