Concord, NC – When the K&N drivers take the green flag at New Smyrna for the inaugural race of the 2015 season, it will mark a new era for Rev Racing. With three fresh faces competing in the NKNPSE for Rev Racing this season, our team will welcome new beginnings while looking to build upon the legacy established by previous drivers who have come through the program. Leading the charge for Rev Racing will be Jay Beasley, the lone returnee from last year’s NKNPSE roster.
Jay Beasley (No. 42 Special Smiles Toyota) – The Las Vegas, Nevada native had a stellar 2014 season, finishing 13th in the overall point standings and 6th in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year voting. For Beasley, last year was defined by progression. At first, Beasley experienced some struggles as it took some time for him to acclimate to the NKNPSE. However, by seasons end, Beasley was driving with the acumen and prowess of a veteran. Now that Beasley has gained the knowledge and experience to win, he wants to show that he can consistently perform at a championship level. And what better place to begin than New Smyrna where he watched former teammate Daniel Suarez dominate in a season which led to Suarez’s Xfinity Series deal.
Kenzie Ruston (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) – Although she is a new racer to the Rev Racing roster, Kenzie Ruston is far from a rookie in the NKNPSE. Ruston is a proven driver within the series. For the El Reno, Oklahoma native, the only unanswered question is how will she adjust to a new car and new crew. However, considering the 22-year-old finished 9th in the 2014 overall point standing, it is doubtful she will waste time and will quickly establish herself as one of the top performers in the series.
Devon Amos (No. 6 MSI Toyota) – The Hart to Heart Breast Cancer Foundation 150 will not only mark Amos’ first time competing at New Smyrna, but it will mark the first time the Rio Rancho, New Mexico native has competed in the NKNPSE. Respectively, Amos is a product of the Rev Racing system. Starting in Legends and working his way up to the NKNPSE, Competition Director Jefferson Hodges has coached Amos to success in every series he has competed in. Furthermore, despite Amos’ status as a rookie in the series, under the leadership and tutelage of Hodges, it is expected that Amos will once again rise to the occasion and become a force in the NKNPSE.
Collin Cabre (No. 2 UTI/NTI Toyota) – Cabre is a fresh face to both Rev Racing and the NKNPSE. Similar to teammate Amos, the series, as well as New Smyrna Speedway, will be new territory for the Tampa, Florida native. How well Collin will fair in the series is yet to be determined. However, Cabre impressed enough NASCAR officials at the Drive for Diversity Combine to earn a spot on our 2015 roster. If he can replicate the same driving competence moving forward, the 21-year-old should have a solid season.
Qualifying begins at 5:00pm, followed by the autograph session at 6:30pm and the Hart to Heart Breast Cancer Foundation 150 at 7:30pm EST.
