After a two-week absence following back-to-back road course races, Rev Racing will return to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East at Greenville Pickens Speedway for the Greenville 140. This weekend’s race will mark the second go-around for Rev Racing at Greenville Pickens Speedway this season. After scoring three top-10’s in the first outing, expectations are sky-high and leading the way for Rev Racing this weekend will be Ryan Gifford and Sergio Peña.
Ryan Gifford (No. 2 UTI/NASCAR Tech Toyota) — Gifford heads into the Greenville 140 following one of his best performances of the season. The Biscuitville 125 at VIR was a race defined by strategy, and the Rev Racing veteran relied on his experience to come away with a top-10 in a race where barely half of the competitors were able to finish. Gifford will be looking to relay on experience once again at Greenville, where a top-10 qualifying effort landed him a sixth place finish last time out.
Sergio Peña (No. 4 L&M Ethanol Toyota) — Peña has historically been fast at Greenville Pickens Speedway. In his last outing at the track, Peña garnered his first top-10 of the 2014 season. However, despite his admirable finish, Peña was forced to fight tooth and nail over the course of the 150-lap race to crack the top-10. The goal for Peña this time around is to qualify in the top-10 with the notion that if he can perform half as well as he did in his last outing, he’ll be in prime position to come away with a win.
Bryan Ortiz (No. 6 Rev Racing Toyota Racing Development Toyota) — Ortiz will be making his second appearance for Rev Racing at this weekend’s Greenville 140. Ortiz, who will be piloting the #6 in place of Daniel Suarez, will have some big shoes to fill as Suarez’s top-5 finish was the highest finish for Rev Racing during the team’s last outing at Greenville. However, make no mistake, the Rev Racing alum is more than ready for the challenge and is looking to conclude his tenure with the team on a high note.
Jay Beasley (No. 42 Rev Racing Toyota Racing Development Toyota) — Beasley may be the most eager to return to the track after engine troubles sidelined the Las Vegas, Nevada native only four laps into his outing at VIR. Additionally, Beasley didn’t have the performance that he had hoped for in his first outing at Greenville Pickens Speedway. However, the race was early in the year and the Rev Racing newcomer was still getting adjusted to the NKNPSE. Since then, Beasley has garnered a pair of top-5’s and four top-10’s. Needless to say, expectations for Beasley have changed, and he’ll be going into this weekend’s race looking to add another top-10 to his resume.
Mackena Bell (No. 21 Special Smiles/Lung Force Toyota) — Bell is another Rev Racing driver eager to return to the track after suffering from mechanical issues at VIR. The leading lady for Rev Racing knows how important it is to carry some momentum into the next season and is looking to utilize the final two races of the 2014 season to do so. Qualifying begins at 6pm, followed by the autograph session at 7pm and the Greenville 140 at 8pm.
