Sanchez and Rev Racing: Aiming for Victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway

October 17, 2023

 Concord, NC- Nick Sanchez and the Rev Racing team are ready for their debut at the driver’s home track in the No. 2 Gainbridge Chevrolet, with their sights set on victory lane. The upcoming event in the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series (NCTS), scheduled for this Saturday, October 21st, promises to be an exciting affair, as it forms a double-header alongside the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Sanchez’s recent performance at Talladega Speedway was highly commendable, as he accumulated enough points to position the No. 2 Rev Racing team in 4th place in the standings, a mere 3 points above the cutoff line. Starting from the second position at the superspeedway, Sanchez not only secured victory in stage 1 but also claimed a 2nd place finish in stage 2. The Chevrolet ultimately crossed the finish line in the 7th position, bolstering the team’s standing just above the cutoff line as they approach the Homestead-Miami Speedway event. This situation has placed significant pressure on Sanchez to perform at his best, with the team’s championship four aspirations hanging in the balance.

Now, the driver of the No.2 Gainbridge Chevrolet will return for another shot at victory in his rookie season in the NCTS. Sanchez expressed his anticipation, saying, “This season, we’ve come close to a win on several occasions. However, securing a victory at my home track where it all began, especially as the first of the season, will be even more special.” He continued, “Throughout the season, I’ve consistently spoken about how this team excels under pressure, and here we are again, just 3 points above the cutoff. My hope is that my team and I can secure our spot in the championship four and deliver the victory we truly deserve.”

The Baptist Health Cancer Care 200 is scheduled to kick off with practice and qualifying on Friday, October 20th at 4:05 PM ET. The main event, a 134-lap race, will commence at 12:00 PM ET the following day, October 21st. Sanchez will be in command of the No. 2 Gainbridge Chevrolet for a total of 201-miles, in pursuit of maintaining the team’s position above the cutoff line and advancing to the championship four.
