Sanchez bounces back big at Watkins Glen, hopes momentum will take him to victory lane at Michigan
August 19, 2021
Concord, NC – NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Driver Nick Sanchez, driver of the No. 2 Max Siegel Incorporated Chevrolet for Rev Racing, heads to Michigan in hopes of reaching victory lane, and to pay homage to America’s rich racing history.
After a tough wreck at Winchester Speedway cost him a shot at the win, Sanchez rebounded at Watkins Glen with a P8 finish—his tenth Top-10 finish of the year. Now heading into Michigan, Sanchez is still as optimistic as ever (if not more so) about nabbing his first win.
“Racing at Michigan will be such a cool experience. I don’t think I have ever been on a track quite like this, honestly. There will be a lot more on-throttle time compared to Kansas and Charlotte, and aerodynamics will play a big role in the outcome of the race for sure. And, a track like this provides very many opportunities for great restarts and lots of hard battles. If we capitalize on those opportunities, we could bring Max Siegel his first ever ARCA Menards Series win.”
Even more exciting for Sanchez and the team is the fact that Sanchez will be racing in a brand-new car with brand-new equipment.
“The guys in the shop have put together some fantastic cars. We’ve been able to go toe-to-toe with all of the championship contenders and we have shown consistent speed. And now that we have some brand new equipment going into the race at Michigan? I’m really excited to see what we can do.”
But it’s not all business for Sanchez this weekend. Prior to his race at Michigan, Sanchez and fellow teammate and friend Rajah Caruth will visit The Henry Ford Museum to talk with media members, compete against them and museum staff on racing simulators, and then take a guided tour of the museum’s new permanent motorsports exhibit, Driven to Win: Racing in America, presented by General Motors.
“Funny enough, my dad and I actually collect cars on the side, so I’ll probably feel right at home at this museum!”, says Sanchez. “I know Rajah and I are definitely excited to learn about the rich automotive history of Detroit.”
On August 20th, Nick Sanchez and Rev Racing will head to Michigan International Speedway to race in the Henry Ford Health System 200. Practice will begin at 4 p.m. ET, followed by an autograph session at 5:15 p.m. ET. The race will air on MAVTV and Trackpass on NBC Sports Gold, with a radio broadcast on MRN and SiriusXM at 6 p.m. ET.
