(CONCORD, NC) – Annabeth Barnes and Jack Madrid made their NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) debut on Saturday night at Hickory Motor Speedway in the 100 lap ZLOOP Challenge. After a promising start to the day, Rev Racing went in with high hopes for the event.
Early on in the race, Madrid experienced mechanical issues on his No. 4 Toyota Camry, effectively ending his night in the 22nd position.
Barnes had a good handling No. 21 Toyota Camry, and was able to advance her position, moving up as high as 11th within the first 10 laps. She was caught in a multiple car accident early on and sustained too much damage to continue, finishing in the 21st position.
Rev Racing had two strong practice sessions; where both drivers spent time getting accustomed to the track, and their new cars. The field was stacked with 22 competitors and Madrid and Barnes qualified 17th and 18th respectively. Both drivers qualified early and the track cooled down significantly as the session progressed, resulting in increased lap times from the later qualifying cars.
Barnes will be in action again on March 16th at Hickory, and both Rev Racing drivers will be competing in the NWAAS at Hickory on April 6th.
