Concord, NC (Feb. 8, 2019) – This Sunday, Rev Racing drivers will return to New Smyrna Speedway (NSS) for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) season opener.
Rev Racing’s team of drivers were selected to the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program after a competitive combine held last October at New Smyrna Speedway. Drivers will compete for Rev Racing in the NKNPSE and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series for a full season. The 2019 K&N East driver class is led by two returning drivers, Chase Cabre and Rubén García Jr.. Late model drivers include, Nicholas Sanchez, Brooke Storer, Ernie Francis Jr. and Gracie Trotter. Francis will run a select number of K&N East races throughout the season.
Rubén García Jr. (No. 6 NTI/MSI Toyota): Returning for his fourth season with Rev Racing, Rubén García Jr. brings his talents back to the NKNPSE. During his 2018 season, García balanced racing in the NKNPSE and running full time in the NASCAR Peak Mexico Series, where he won his second championship title. In this past NKNPSE season, García finished third in point standings, capturing his first two victories in the the United States, at Memphis International Raceway and Dover International Speedway. He and his team have their eye on the NKNEPS Championship.
“This year, we are going to have to make it happen,” said Rubén García Jr.. “To win a championship, we must start the year right from the very beginning. We are going to NSS with a winning mindset.”
Chase Cabre (No. 4 Honda Generators/Braille Battery Toyota): 22-year-old, Chase Cabre, will join the Rev Racing roster for the third year. Cabre started racing at the age of four in motocross and has found success on the track ever since. Most recently in the off-season, Cabre finished fourth place in the 2018 Tulsa Shootout in the Stock Non-Wing Division. Cabre earned eight top-10s and three top-5s in his 2018 NKNPSE season. Cabre, also has a winning mindset as the green flag drops on the NKNPSE season.
“A championship at the end of the season starts and ends with good finishes,” said Cabre. “We are looking to walk out on top in round one.”
Under Rev Racing owner Max Siegel’s leadership, the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Driver Development class aligns drivers with a team of executives, athletic directors, crew chiefs and mentors tasked with helping drivers achieve career successes. “We are excited to get the season started at New Smyrna Speedway,” said Siegel. “This year’s class brings both experienced and rookie drivers. Our ultimate goal with every class and experience level is to prepare them for success at the K&N level and eventually the national series. Every year presents new opportunities for growth and we look forward to finding what we are capable of this season. We have never been more positioned for another championship.”
