CONCORD, N.C. (July 16, 2014) — Rev Racing will return to the track on Saturday for the second week in a row to compete in the JEGS 150 at Columbus Motor Speedway. Each Rev Racing team has been hard at work all week and the cars are ready to hit the track for a successful weekend in the Midwest. With all Rev Racing drivers ranking in the top 20 of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, this race could result in a positive outcome for the team.
Jay Beasley (No. 42 Rev Racing Toyota) — The NKNPSE rookie is headed to Columbus fresh off his second top five of the season where he finished fourth in New Hampshire, tying his season-best. So far this season, Beasley has been successful racing on short tracks and looks forward to driving on the .333-mile oval.
“Going into Columbus, I feel like we can get another top five finish, and I feel like we’re even going to win shortly,” he said. “I’m really excited because I think we’ll do really well, especially on a short track.”
He captured his first top five at Iowa Speedway in May and hopes to return home from the Midwest again with the same success. In his last five races, Beasley has garnered two top fives and four top 10s, increasing his point standing to 12th place.
Mackena Bell (No. 21 Special Smiles/Lung Force Toyota) — Saturday’s race will be Bell’s second go-round in Columbus. She finished 11th during her first trip there last year, and now she’s aiming for her second top 10 of the 2014 season. In three of her last four races, Bell was just a few positions shy of a top 10 finish, so she is eager for redemption on Saturday to improve her 15th place point standing.
Sergio Peña (No. 4 L&M Ethanol Toyota) — Peña continues to be optimistic about the remaining six races of the season with hopes of finishing strong. He will race at Columbus Motor Speedway for the second time with Rev Racing, and with one top 10 under his belt this season, he is ranked 16th in the point standings.
Ryan Gifford (No. 6 Rev Racing Toyota) — The five-year veteran will enter the JEGS 150 with 15 career top fives and 22 career top 10s. In his last three races, Gifford was unable to finish due to irreparable damages and mechanical issues that occurred on the track, but he plans to use the incidents as motivation for Columbus to improve his 18th position in the point standings.
Two-lap qualifying for the JEGS 150 begins at 6 p.m. with an autograph session to follow at 8 p.m.
The race will air on July 27 at 10 a.m. on Fox Sports 1.
