DSC_0265_671 CONCORD, N.C. (November 5, 2013) – 2013 has been a historical year for Rev Racing and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity (#NASCARD4D) program. This season saw four past and current program participants make starts at the national level of the sport, with Paulie Harraka in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Kyle Larson and Ryan Gifford in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and Darrell Wallace Jr. in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. In October, Wallace became the first African-American driver to win in a NASCAR national series in nearly 50 years with a victory in the Kroger 200 Camping World Truck Series race, a victory that was monumental for both the sport and the program. The success doesn’t stop there, Wallace and Larson are currently leading the Rookie of the Year race in their respective series with two races to go. “We want to continue to give women and minorities the best training possible in order to be successful as they move up in the sport.” said Max Siegel, Owner of Rev Racing. “I think the success that both Darrell and Kyle have had this season proves that our model is working.” Since opening its doors in 2010, Rev Racing has had 12 wins, 48 top-five, and 85 top-10 finishes in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, with drivers finishing in the top-three in points every season. Last year, Kyle Larson won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Championship, making Siegel the first African-American owner in the history of the sport to win a championship. Siegel is proud of the success the program has had, but realizes that there is still plenty of work to be done. “We want to see more of our drivers graduate from the program and move up through the ranks.” said Siegel, “Our goal is for the field of drivers to represent the demographics of this country, which means having more minorities competing at every level of the sport.” This past season two Rev Racing drivers earned their first win in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Daniel Suarez and Ryan Gifford, and Suarez finished third in the series points standings. “Both of these drivers have what it takes to be competitive at the next level, and it’s our hope that they get that opportunity.” said Siegel. The team just wrapped up the annual NASCAR Drive for Diversity combine after screening a record 90 applicants. 20 drivers were selected to compete for a spot on the 2014 Rev Racing roster, and the increased talent pool at the combine this year means the future is bright for Rev Racing and the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program.

Kyle Larson Wins Slack Auto Parts 150 at Gresham Motorsports Park

CONCORD, NC (June 10, 2012) Kyle Larson, driver of the No. 6 Rev Racing and L&M Ethanol Maintenance Contracting, Inc. Toyota Camry, takes home his first win in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, Saturday night in the Slack Auto Parts 150 at Gresham Motorsports Park. In what started off as a difficult night for Rev Racing, this 19-year-old driver proved that nothing could stop him from picking up the checkered flag. Starting the caution filled race in the 4th position, Larson fell back to sixth during the first of eight caution flags and held this position until fighting back to the top three by lap 40. While fighting his way to the top, Larson slipped back in the field after his Rev Racing teammate, Bryan Ortiz, blew a right front tire on the No. 4 Toyota Racing Development Camry, on lap 76, collecting the No. 2 Universal Technical Institute/NASCAR Technical Institute Toyota Camry of fellow teammate, Ryan Gifford, which lead to the first red flag of the race. Returning to green flag racing after this first of three red flag situations, Larson continued to climb and was contending for the win when the last of his Rev Racing teammates, Jorge Arteaga, was involved in an accident on the backstretch, on lap 125, ending his night. More determined than ever to claim a victory for Rev Racing, Larson, continued to battle race leader and pole winner, Cale Conley, for the win when the red flag flew for the final time on lap 142. Facing another restart with only eight laps remaining in the race, Larson thought he would see his dream diminish before making the ‘move of the race’, on lap 145, resulting in both the lead as well as the race win. “I am glad that I can bring a win home for Rev Racing as well as my sponsors, Toyota and L&M Ethanol Maintenance Contracting, Inc.,” said Larson. “I wasn’t sure that my team and I would have enough time to pull off this win, but we got a good restart on lap 145, I beat Conley into turn one and was able to hold him off.” After this win, 2012 Rookie of the Year contender, Larson, has moved within three points of NASCAR K&N Pro Series East points leader Chase Elliott. Larson and his fellow Rev Racing drivers will make their return to the track in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Visit Hampton, VA 175, at Langley Speedway, in Hampton, VA, on Saturday, June 23.
