Rev Racing heads to the world’s fastest half-mile 

Arca Menards Series

Concord, NC — Last weekend in Kansas, Chevrolet drivers Nick Sanchez came home with a second place finish and Rajah Caruth in 12th. Rev Racing continued its dominance at large tracks this year and the runner up finish for Sanchez was enough to earn the General Tire Superspeedway Challenge Championship for the team. This weekend is an opportunity for Rev Racing to improve their short track performance. They will head to the world’s fastest half mile at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Bush Beans 200 will serve as the 18th race in the 2022 ARCA Menards Series season and will conclude this year’s Sioux Chief Showdown. 

“I’m looking forward to Bristol, historically Rev Racing has been good there. We have a very competitive banking package and I want to win badly, especially in Bristol,” said Sanchez. A win in Bristol would be another addition to Sanchez’s collection of big wins at notable NASCAR tracks (Michigan, Kansas, Talladega). 

Both drivers will play double duty this weekend on the 0.533-mile paved oval, Nick Sanchez will make his debut with Big Machine Racing (BMR).  “Big shoes to fill at BMR, with all the cup drivers they had come through this year. My team expects to win and I want to put my best foot forward in my first race with BMR.” 

Sanchez will pilot the No. 2 Max Siegel Inc/GainBridge Chevrolet with Rev, and then No. 48 Big Machine Racing Spiked Chevrolet. This will be Sanchez’s first double duty weekend since Charlotte of this year, Sanchez will compete in three more Xfinity races with BMR at Texas, Las Vegas, and Homestead.

The last two races have not gone in Rajah Caruth’s favor. He suffered an engine problem in DuQuoin. He was able to charge back up the field in Kansas after having a flat tire, but made contact with the wall on lap 98 of the race. However, the rookie is far from giving up on his title hopes. “I Just have to keep going,” said Caruth.

“I’m ready to get back out there and give it my all.” Caruth will pilot the No. 6 Max Siegel Inc./Gainbridge Chevrolet around the oval at Bristol. He will also take part in another double duty weekend, Caruth will pilot the No. 7 Spire Motorsports truck in the Camping World Trucks Series where he will have another opportunity to show what he can do in a competitive car. 

Caruth turns the page on to Bristol from last season. “I’m excited to go back to Bristol and improve from my performance last year.” Caruth was able to finish in the top 10 at P6, respectively. Caruth has made the most of his 2022 season so far. He has proved that he is a future star in Motorsports and that he is just getting started, having led the series in point standings up until the last few races.

The Bush Beans 200 will take place Thursday, September 15, at 6:30 p.m. FS1 will provide live television coverage of the race. There will be a live stream of the race on the Fox Sports app, and a live radio broadcast on MRN / SiriusXM (XM channel 391, online channel 981) /
