Michael Cherry

Team: No. 6 Distribution One Late Model

Crew Chief: Lee McCall

Cherry on his return to Greenville Pickens Speedway:

“I’m excited to go back to Greenville and see all of the drivers I raced against last season. I’m going into this weekend as a veteran and not as a track rookie; with the support of Revolution Racing behind me this season, I’m confident we have what it takes to go out there and win races.

Fast Facts:

  • Cherry ran a full season at Greenville in 2009; he earned seven top fives and 19 top 10s in 21 races.
  • This weekend marks the start of Cherry’s third season of racing on asphalt, and just his seventh year of racing stock cars.
  • Crew Chief Lee McCall is no stranger to Greenville Pickens Speedway – as crew chief for Marty Ward, McCall won 13 races at GPS last season.
  • This is Cherry’s third season competing under the Drive for Diversity banner.

Rebecca Kasten

Team: No. 5 D4D Crew Member Development Program presented by Sprint Late Model

Crew Chief: Lynn Martin

Kasten on making her first start with Revolution Racing:

“We’ve been working in the shop here in Mooresville since the first of the year, so I’m definitely ready to get to the track to go racing. I’ve always driven for my family owned team so it’s been an adjustment to come down here to North Carolina to race, but Max Siegel and John Story have put together a great operation and I’m excited to be part of it. I think we’ll do some really great things this season.”

Fast Facts:

  • Kasten started her racing career just three years ago, but has made up for lost time by running more than 20 late model and super late model events a year.
  • Kasten is making her first start at Greenville Pickens Speedway this weekend. She’ll race at GPS at least four more times this season.
  • Riding the momentum: Kasten participated in New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway’s annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing in February, competing in Crate Late Models and Super Late Models throughout the nine day event. Kasten ended the week with a seventh-place finish in the Pete Orr Memorial 100, the premier Super Late Model race of the week.
  • This is Kasten’s first season of competition with NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program.

Megan Reitenour

Team: No. 1 Revolution Racing Late Model

Crew Chief: Brandon Butler

Reitenour on making her first start at Greenville Pickens Speedway:

“I’m looking forward to getting out there and learning as much as I can. There are so many phenomenal race car drivers who compete at Greenville Pickens Speedway on a weekly basis; I just want to try to soak up as much as I can from them. Greenville Pickens Speedway is such a historic race track and I’m excited to get to be a part of that.”

Fast Facts:

  • Reitenour has never raced at Greenville Pickens Speedway; she’ll be making her first and second starts at the historic track this weekend.
  • Last season Reitenour earned Rookie of the Year honors at Tri-County Motor Speedway in Hudson, N.C. She earned one pole, seven top fives and 16 top 10s.
  • Reitenour has two stock car wins under her belt in the Super Cup Stock Car Series; she’s looking for her first NASCAR Whelen All-American Series late model win.
  • This weekend marks the start of Reitenour’s second season of competition with the Drive for Diversity program.
