Rev Racing ready to take on the Superspeedway at Talladega


April 19, 2023

Menards 200 For The Arca Menards SeriesConcord, NC Rev Racing is heading to Talladega Superspeedway for the third race in the Arca Menards Series (AMS) schedule, for the General Tire 200, this Saturday (4.22). The team is set to field two drivers on the 2.66-mile paved oval, Andres Perez de Lara behind the No.2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet and Jack Wood behind the No. 6 WB/Velocity Racing Chevrolet. Perez and Wood will take to the track on Saturday, during a NASCAR doubleheader with the NASCAR  Xfinity Series. The No. 2 and No. 6 Chevrolets will race for 76 laps and over 202 miles. The green flag is set to wave for the 61st time in AMS history at 12:30 PM ET. 

Rev Racing is ready for redemption after results at Phoenix Raceway left Perez de Lara and Wood short of the finish they desired. The two drivers qualified 2
nd (Wood) and 6th (Perez), however, a mid-race crash ended Wood’s night early and a late race spinout resulted in a 4th place finish for Perez de Lara.

Perez will pilot the No.2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet for the second time this season and his first visit to Talladega. Perez is using momentum from his strong finish at Phoenix and learning from Rev’s win there last year with 2022 AMS Champion Nick Sanchez. “I’m really happy to go racing at Talladega this weekend,” said Perez. “It’s a new type of track for me and that makes it a challenge. Knowing that the team won at Talladega last year is motivation and I know we’ll have a fast car.” 


Wood, piloting the No. 6 WB/Velocity Racing Chevrolet is experienced at Talladega, this being his fourth career start.  Wood raced at the track in 2021 and 2022 in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and in 2022 in the AMS series, where he started 12th and finished 11th. This is Wood’s third out of seven races with Rev for the season and Wood is ready, stating “I’m looking forward to heading back to Talladega, our cars were really fast at Daytona and Phoenix and I think we’ll have a good shot at parking it in victory lane this weekend.” Wood is leaning on his experience, “I’ve been here three times before, so I’m familiar with how it races.” 

The General Tire 200 is scheduled for April 22 at 12:30PM ET and will air on FS1, MRN, Sirius XM, and live streamed on the Fox Sports App. There will be no qualifying for the AMS series, however, Perez and Wood will take to the track Friday at 4:00 PM ET for practice. The No.2 and No.6 Chevrolets will compete for 202 miles reaching speeds up to 190 MPH and, hopefully, secure the first win of the season for Rev Racing.
