CHARLOTTE, NC – The UPMC Health Plan 150 at Smithon, PA’s Motordrome Speedway brought red flags and restarts, and ended ultimately with two top-10s and a top-15 for Rev Racing.
Driver of the #4 L&M Consulting Toyota, Kenzie Ruston, was one of the Rev drivers that took tremendous strides throughout the race. With a p16 qualifying start, Ruston was able to break through the pack to land in her the top-10 by the end of the race. By lap 92, Ruston found a stronghold on the top-15 continuing to advance throughout the race. However, an hour and a half long red took all drivers by surprise and put a pause on the UPMC Health Plan 150 for track repair. In p11 on restart, Ruston quickly darted through the pack securing her place in top-10. With laps winding down, Ruston was still able to gain traction, and found herself in p6 at the checkered flag.
A familiar face to the Rev Racing team, Sergio Peña joined Rev again Saturday night to man the #42 Special Smiles Toyota. During the race, Peña found himself throughout the pack. Qualifying p10, Peña made a quick leap into p6 within the first ten laps, but a flat tire near lap 30 brought Peña in for a quick pit, having him return to the race at p20, 13 laps behind his original lead. Peña spent the next 120 laps regaining his top-10 spot as he steadily moved forward throughout the remainder of the race. Peña took the checkered at p10, a second top-10 for Rev that night.
Devon Amos, driver of the #66 Max Siegel, Inc. Toyota, also found himself within the top-10 for multiple laps during the race. Qualifying p11, Amos darted in and out of the top-10 and made it to p9 on lap 50. With on and off restarts, and the delay from the red, Amos lost his grip on the top-10, but remained vigilant and secured a top-15 spot at p13.
#2 Universal Technical Institute Toyota driver Collin Cabre ran a steady race, and found himself within the top-10 early on in p9 after qualifying p15. Car difficulties put Cabre into pit lane during the red, unfortunately causing a loss in momentum and placing him at the back of the pack. Cabre was able to regain position as much as he could on restart, and finished the race in p17.
Rev Racing heads back to the track on Saturday, August 29th for the Biscutville 150 at VIRginia International Speedway.
