Rev Racing takes on the tricky triangle at Pocono
Concord, NC — In Rev Racing’s last team outing, Chevrolet driver Rajah Caruth finished a respective ninth, and teammate Nick Sanchez was just outside the top 10 after being hit with a tire penalty. This week the team will take on the 2.5mile paved tri-oval at Pocono Raceway. The General Tire Delivers 200 will host the tenth round of the 2022 ARCA Menard Series (AMS) in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
Approaching the halfway mark of the season, Caruth and Sanchez find themselves still on top of the AMS standings. Caruth leads Sanchez in points total of 390 to 384, just 2 points ahead of third place driver Daniel Dye. “Couldn’t have asked for a better start of the season. Just have to trust the process and work through the lighter half of the year and find some wins,” said Caruth.
Caruth will pilot the No. 6 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet this Friday. Caruth has spent most of his rookie season learning new tracks while still finding ways to produce results at each event. “I enjoy going to new race tracks and doing my homework. It’s been very productive learning each race track and getting respective results.”
The General Tire Delivers 200 will not be the only race Caruth will run this weekend. Caruth will participate in double duty action, running in his third NASCAR Xfinity race with Alpha Prime Racing. “Having the test day and the ARCA race prior is going to be even better preparation for the Xfinity race on Saturday,” said Rajah Caruth.
Through the first half of the season, Sanchez has earned two wins and several top 10 finishes. However, the weekend in Mid-Ohio was one of his proudest despite suffering a penalty. “I felt confident in the car all weekend,” said Sanchez. “I felt that weekend we brought the fastest car in the field, it was a step in the right direction, and we need to bring that same ideology to the rest of the schedule.” With such a goal in mind, Sanchez is still searching for his next win.
Previously at Pocono, Sanchez was able to make up positions and finish in fourth. Sanchez will make his return to the tricky triangle and will continue to produce results. “I think it will be a good day,” said Sanchez. “We have good speed at the tracks where you keep it on the throttle most of the time, which is Pocono’s characteristic.”
Sanchez will pilot the No. 2 Max Siegel Inc. Chevrolet around the tri-oval for 80 laps. The 200-mile race is one of the longest in the AMS schedule. “You have to make sure your car handles in the long run and try not to lose momentum, and if you’re in traffic, it will be hard to pass,” said Sanchez.
The General Tire Delivers 200 will take place Friday, July 22, at 6:30 p.m ET. Live television coverage of the race will be provided by FS1. Fox Sports app will live stream the race, and a live radio broadcast will be on MRN/Sirius XM (XM channel 391, online channel 981) and at ARCARacing.com.
