(CONCORD, NC) – Rev Racing drivers Annabeth Barnes and Jack Madrid will make their NASCAR Whelen All-American Series debut this Saturday, March 9th, at Hickory Motor Speedway in the Spring Classic Season Opener.

While Barnes is no rookie at Hickory Motor Speedway, where she ran her first full stock car season competing in the Limited Late Model Division, it will be her first time competing in a Late Model car.

“This is going to be a big year for me, moving into late models. It will be a good opportunity to learn and grow as a driver, and I’m really excited to compete for Rev Racing and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the Drive for Diversity program.” said Barnes.

Madrid, originally from San Clemente, Calif., spent last season racing in the Super Late Model Division on the West Coast, where he finished top-10 in all four races in which he competed.

“The biggest difference for me this season will be the level of talent at the track, it’s really going to help me develop as a driver. I feel like we have a really great Toyota Camry that will be competitive, and my goal is to learn as much as I can each weekend.” said Madrid.

Barnes and Madrid both join the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program this season after being selected in the combine to compete for Rev Racing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.

Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. and racing will begin at 7:00 p.m. For more information about Rev Racing visit https://revracing.net or follow us on Twitter @RevRacin.
