Concord, NC (April 15, 2015) – In what will be the first companion race of the season, Rev Racing will head to Bristol Motor Speedway in hopes of taming the world’s fastest ½ mile. Last season’s race at Bristol pushed all five Rev Racing teams to their limits. After a tough 125 laps of racing, Jay Beasley was one of only two Rev Racing drivers to finish the race. However, a roster full of new faces gives Rev Racing a fresh start heading into the weekend. And, the lone returnee from last year’s NKNPSE team goes into the race with experience on his side.
Jay Beasley (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota) – The Las Vegas, Nevada native will be asked to lead his teammates into the PittLite 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway. Beasley has improved drastically from the driver he was entering last year’s event. Beasley entered 2014’s race with hardly any NKNPSE experience and outperformed all of his veteran teammates. However, this year Beasley is the veteran, and hopes to once again lead by example.
Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) – Although Ruston has raced at Bristol Motor Speedway many times, this weekend will mark the first time she will be competing at Bristol as a member of Rev Racing. Though this track can be intimidating to most, the El Reno, Oklahoma native has a solid grasp of what it takes to perform well at the speedway. Last season, Ruston entered the race with a solid vehicle and was on her way to a top-10 finish before incidental contact derailed her campaign. Nonetheless, Ruston is confident that she will be able to replicate late season’s effort and bring home the top-10 that eluded her last season.
Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) – The PittLite 125 will mark the first time the Rio Rancho, New Mexico native has competed at Bristol Motor Speedway. For Amos, it will be key to remain poised and let the race come to him. For a NKNPSE novice, he will need to remain calm and follow the strategy put forth by his crew chief. If Amos can successfully do so, he will like where he stands come the end of the race.
Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) – Similar to Amos, Cabre is another NKNPSE novice at Bristol. The Rev Racing newcomer has shown that he is fundamentally sound with his racing technique. While his patience and driving led to a decent race last time out at Greenville Pickens, such prowess is crucial at Bristol Motor Speedway; a track that is known for being unkind to undisciplined drivers. If Cabre can build off of his last performance, he should have a solid weekend.
Qualifying for the PittLite 125 begins at 5:00pm on Thursday. The autograph session will take place from 12:15 – 1:00pm on Saturday, followed by the PittLite 125 at 4:30pm EST.
