2018 NASCAR Drive For Diversity Development Team Announced Six Drivers Tabbed to Compete For Rev Racing Next Season

Daytona, Beach, Fla. – The youngest NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series champion. The youngest driver to win four Trans-Am championships. And the 2016 Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award winner.

As evidenced by the six drivers announced as part of the 2018 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Development Team, the roster for next year is stacked with emerging young talent ready to make their mark in the sport. The drivers represent a cross-section of backgrounds – both in terms of heritage and driving disciplines – and all share a common goal: To reach the highest levels of NASCAR.

“What we’re seeing with these six drivers is a group of very talented racers who have shown the ability on and off the track to excel at the next level,” said Jim Cassidy, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. “With an increased focus on seat time and competition among the drivers, we’re looking forward to watching them perform next season.”

“We are thrilled with the level of talent that applied for the program, were invited to the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine and, ultimately, the six who were selected to drive for Rev Racing in 2018,” said Max Siegel, CEO of Rev Racing. “As we’ve seen the program evolve over the years and produce wins and champions, and help elevate drivers such as Daniel Suárez, Kyle Larson and Darrell Wallace Jr. to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, these drivers have the ability and potential to carry that legacy forward.”

The 2018 NASCAR Drive for Diversity roster includes a pair of drivers who have been part of the NASCAR Next program, an industry initiative designed to spotlight the sport’s rising stars.

 

The new class features the following drivers:

  • Chase Cabre, 20, Tampa, Florida. Cabre finished sixth in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship standings and was runner-up for Sunoco Rookie of the Year. He won the 21 Means 21 Pole Award twice and recorded four top-five finishes. He will return to compete in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and will also race a Late Model in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.

 

  • Ernie Francis Jr., 19, Dania, Florida. Francis has already locked up his fourth Trans Am Series championship, becoming the youngest driver in series history to do so. He has 32 Trans Am Series wins – the most in series history – and 15 Pirelli World Challenge victories. Francis will be a development driver with Rev Racing, running road-course events in the K&N Pro Series East and select Late Model events, as well as testing, as he transitions to oval-track racing.

 

  • Rubén García Jr., 21, Mexico City, Mexico. García will return to Rev Racing for his third season. The 2015 NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series champion finished fifth in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East this year and is third in the PEAK Mexico Series standings with one race remaining. The NASCAR Next graduate will join Cabre in the K&N Pro East in addition to racing in the Late Model.

 

  • Nick Sanchez, 16, Homestead, Florida. Sanchez finished fifth in the 10-race Bojangles Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Rev Racing’s Legends Car program last year, and will move up to the team’s full-time Late Model in 2018. Sanchez had a win among five podium finishes in the Summer Shootout.

 

  • Ryan Vargas, 17, La Mirada, California. Vargas won the Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award in 2016 as the highest finishing multicultural or female driver in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I. He was runner-up for NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Josten’s Rookie of the Year for California in 2016 while racing at Irwindale and Bakersfield’s Kern County Raceway Park and the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This season, he scored a pair of wins this year to finish third in the state standings and 16th in the national standings. Vargas will drive in the third full-time K&N Pro Series East car and also race in the Late Model.

 

  • Isabella Robusto, 13, Fort Mill, South Carolina. Robusto will anchor Rev Racing’s Youth Driver Program as she returns to the team to drive in the Legends car. Robusto will be one of four youth development drivers, with the remaining three to be announced at a later date. She was third overall at the Bandolero Winter Nationals and was the South Carolina Legends Young Lions champion in 2016 and was third overall in points in the Bojangles Summer Shootout Series in 2015.

 

NASCAR Drive for Diversity aligns drivers with a team of executives, athletic directors, crew chiefs and mentors tasked with helping them achieve career successes, and thus improving their goal of reaching one of the three NASCAR national series.

 

The 2017 NASCAR season was another banner year for NASCAR Drive for Diversity alumni, as three graduates made a major impact at the sport’s highest level.

 

Kyle Larson earned four wins to establish his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing team as a force in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. A contender for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors, Daniel Suárez this year became the first Mexican-born driver to compete full-time in the sport’s premier series, and in February raced in his first DAYTONA 500. Last month, Darrell Wallace Jr. was announced as the new driver of Richard Petty Motorsports’ iconic No. 43 Ford for the 2018 season.

CARS Tour Announces 2018 Season Schedule and Unprecedented Competitor Incentive Programs

Mooresville, NC 8/24/17 – The CARS Tour announced the 2018 schedules for both the Super Late Model Tour and the Late Model Stock Car Tour during a press conference at South Boston on Fridayevening, along with several incentive programs that the series hopes will boost car counts and loyalty amongst teams in the future.

For the first time in CARS Tour history, the SLM and LMSC Tours will not run identical schedules, as the Late Model Stock Car Tour will run 12 races in 2018, while the Super Late Model Tour will only run nine races. Both divisions will still share seven races with each other during the 2018 season, including the Mid-Atlantic Classic at Orange County Speedway, the Throwback 276 at Hickory Motor Speedway, and the season finale at South Boston Speedway.

The CARS Tour will also venture to five new tracks for the 2018 season. The CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour will make stops at Wake County Speedway, Ace Speedway, Carteret County Speedway and Kingsport Speedway for the first time in the series’ history. The Super Late Model Tour will travel to Tennessee on April 7th to participate in a combination race with the Championship Racing Association and Southern Super Series at Fairgrounds Speedway.

Changes to the purses in both divisions were also announced in Friday’s press conference. The CARS LMSC Tour purse, which is based on a 28-car field, will be increased by 12% in 2018, with the average purse for each race being $32,450 in comparison to the $28,875 spread out amongst the drivers in 2017. A driver who wins a CARS LMSC Tour race in 2018 will earn $6,000 instead of $5,000, and any driver who starts a race will automatically earn $700.

The purse for the Super Late Models in 2018 will also be based on a 28-car starting field, with one major change being that the purse for SLM events will be aligned with other SLM sanctioning bodies. Unlike the LMSC Tour, four races in the SLM Tour will award $10,000 to the winner of the event, which will be the races at Myrtle Beach Speedway, Anderson Motor Speedway, the Mid-Atlantic Classic, and a race that has yet to be announced for May 20, 2018.

The CARS Tour also announced the Touring Twelve program for the Late Model Stock Car Tour, which is a loyalty program that will consist of twelve Late Model teams that plan to compete in every points event for the 2018 season. There will be several benefits for Touring Twelve teams that will include a reduced entry fee of $825, and a guaranteed minimum of $1,000 in earnings for each race. Touring Twelve teams will also receive two sets of discounted Hoosier tires, four complimentary race tickets to all CARS LMSC Tour points races, and an opportunity to be featured on CARS Tour merchandise.

In order for teams to participate in the Touring Twelve program, CARS LMSC Tour teams must sign an agreement to participate in all regular season races and complete driver and owner registrations by March 2, 2018. Drivers will be required to have their name and likeness used on CARS Tour branding and merchandise, and must be committed to participate in limited driver appearances throughout the season, along with running a special throwback scheme at the Throwback 276 on August 4, 2018.

There will also be a loyalty program for CARS LMSC Tour competitors who do not participate in the Touring Twelve program. Any car owner in the division that competes in three consecutive races will receive a $500 bonus as a part of their winnings for the third event, which could result in an additional $2,000 in winnings for the 2018 season. A driver who participates in this program is not required to start in the season opener at Tri-County, and can run any three consecutive LMSC Tour races of their choice.

Other programs announced by the CARS Tour include a Hometown Hero bonus, in which any non-CARS LMSC Tour regular who is in the top three in a track’s LSMC points prior to the CARS Tour arrival will receive free Hoosier Tires for the CARS Tour race at that track. Information regarding finances and fees for CARS Tour teams will remain the same with the exception of late fees, which will drop to $100 in 2018 as opposed to the $250 late fee implemented in 2017.

Rain Washes Out Day 3 of NASCAR Drive For Diversity Combine

Rain persisted most of the morning at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway. Jason Christley/NASCAR

NEW SMYRNA, Fla. (Oct. 18, 2017) –- Heavy rains overnight and throughout the morning combined with track conditions in the afternoon to wash out Day 3 of the 2017 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine presented by Honda Generators. The 12 participants competing for a spot on the 2018 Rev Racing roster were slated to take laps in the team’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series cars. The early end to the session, however, did not adversely affect the evaluation process.

Drivers took part in media and physical assessment at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona on Monday, and each of them got two sessions in a Late Model Stock Car Tuesday at New Smyrna Speedway.

“This has been probably our most talented group of drivers we’ve brought to the NASCAR Drive for Diversity Combine,” said Jusan Hamilton, NASCAR manager of racing operations & event management. “Each driver really stepped up both off the track and on the track. We had two great days of evaluation.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t get on track on the third day, but based on the body of work we’ve seen, we feel we’re at a point to make a decision on who we’re going select for next year.”

The first two days were comparable to the experience of previous NASCAR Drive For Diversity Combines. The additional day of testing, in the K&N Pro Series cars, was scheduled to be a new addition this season to provide another layer of data; until inclement weather changed those plans.

As part of the evolution of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, though, the enhanced focus the overall driver profile means Monday’s off-track evaluations will factor more into the 2018 roster than in the past. The team is also looking at increase in seat time to ramp up the competition next season.

To that end, a smaller pool of 12 participants were invited to the tryout, out of which four will be selected for the 2018 Rev Racing team. Three of those drivers will race full-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, while also running full-time in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series in a Late Model – totaling more than 30 races next season. In addition, the fourth driver will compete full-time in the Late Model program and serve as an alternate for the K&N Pro Series program.

It also meant that current Rev Racing drivers who were invited were also part of the on-track testing, which was new this year.

One of those drivers looking to reclaim a spot with Rev Racing is Ruben Garcia Jr. The 2015 NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series champion, Garcia has driven for Rev Racing in the K&N Pro Series each of the last two years. He finished fifth in the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship points.

“Seat time, especially for those of us trying to get up in the ranks, is the most important thing,” said Garcia. “I think it’s a great step for the program. I’m actually really, really excited and hoping I can get back into the program to be able to get that seat time. I think it’s a great, great opportunity for us.”

Garcia is one of two drivers from the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Series who were invited to the combine. He was joined in New Smyrna by Fabian Welter, as they look to follow in the path paved by 2016 NASCAR XFINITY Series champion and current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Daniel Suarez, who got his start in NASCAR Mexico. Welter has already clinched the championship for the NASCAR PEAK Mexico Challenge Series — the second level for NASCAR in Mexico — with a race remaining.

“The base is very similar,” said Garcia when asked to compare the K&N Pro cars to the ones in Mexico. “A K&N car is kind of like a NASCAR Mexico car on steroids: It’s bigger, heavier, way more horsepower. It has more variables set-up wise, so more things you need to think about while you’re practicing.”

For a driver, though, Garcia said, they still have one important thing in common: “They’re still stock cars with a V8 engine.”

Since 2010, Rev Racing has managed the NASCAR Drive for Diversity team. It’s compiled 17 wins among six different drivers and produced national series race winners Kyle Larson, Suarez and Darrell Wallace Jr. Earlier this year, Rev Racing’s Macy Causey became the first female driver in the 61-year history of South Boston Speedway to win a Late Model Stock Car feature.

In addition to being sponsored by Honda Generators, the Combine received sponsorship support from partners AiM Tech, Bethune-Cookman, Five Star Race Car Bodies, M2 Promotions, Perry’s Ocean Edge Resort in Daytona Beach, and Sunoco.

In an expanded role for next year, Rev Racing will also select an additional four youth drivers at a future combine. Those drivers will participate in the organization’s expanded Legends and Bandoleros program next season. This past season, Rev Racing had two Legends cars in the Bojangles Summer Shootout. The team will also provide several driver development test sessions in its Late Model at Langley Speedway in Virginia and New Smyrna during the 2018 race season for prospective multicultural and female drivers.

CARS Tour Late Model Stocks to Kick Off 2018 Season Racing for $10,000 at Tri-County

Photo: CARS Tour Press Release

Mooresville, NC 10/12/17 – With competition at the track winding down for the 2017 season the Championship Auto Racing Series (CARS Tour) has announced a huge race to kick off the 2018 Late Model Stock (LMSC) season.  The opening race to be held at Tri-County Motor Speedway in Hudson, North Carolina will pay the winner of the event $10,000 as part of a record purse for the Late Model Stock portion of the series.

“This will be our fourth season running the Late Model Stocks and we have had their support from the beginning.  The consistent car counts at every event and the loyalty of the driver’s year after year allows us to go all in for the 2018 late model stock season.  We look to make this a signature event by holding it early in the year and prior to the national and local point events beginning” said Jack McNelly, owner of the CARS Tour.

The Do The Dew 150 will be held at Tri-County Motor Speedway on the afternoon of March 10th as a daytime event.  The Hudson, North Carolina oval has been on the CARS Tour series schedule since its inception and has consistently provided the best racing the series has to offer starting in 2015 with a 100 lap event won by Brayton Haws that saw seven lead changes amongst four different drivers.  Just this season Garrett Campbell and Josh Berry dazzled the fans in attendance with racing that many dream to witness on a regular basis.

“Tri-County is such a great track and is so much fun to watch a race at.  The drivers love the multiple groove racing, there isn’t a bad seat in the house and fans can tailgate and grill trackside.  Our race there last year saw five leaders and a last lap crossover move coming to the checkered in just 100 laps, it was one of the best races I have ever seen” said McNelly.

Tri-County Motor Speedway is unique in that it has not raced Late Model Stocks on a regular basis in several years and is only open for special events. Because of this, and the track’s tight restrictions in the area, teams will not get an opportunity to test the track independently. Instead, a single open test day on March 3rd, that will double as the CARS Tour Media Day presented by SRI Performance, will be the only chance outside of race weekend that teams can tune up for the $10,000 prize.

‘We expect this race to have a very strong turnout of cars.  Along with $10,000 to win and $800 to start, we will soon be announcing loyalty programs that exceed anything currently being done in the region for the Late Model Stocks and I’d probably venture to say Super Late Models across the country. Point races and scheduling conflicts for most drivers won’t be an issue and prior experience isn’t a factor since the facility is rarely used.  Put that together with the fantastic racing we have seen at Tri-County and we have the ingredients for one hell of a start to 2018 I really have to thank Doug Houser at Pepsi Cola of Hickory for helping make this major event possible. He’s been supporting us every step of the way and he was 100% on board when we brought him our idea about this race” said Chris Ragle, CARS Tour Series Director.

Entry forms, race format, and support divisions for the Do the Dew 150 will be released at a later time.  General admission tickets and a limited number of trackside parking reservations are being made available in advance for this event for the reduced price of $15 through www.carsracingtour.combeginning in December.

South Boston Speedway’s Season Finale Shaping Up To Be One Of Most Competitive Races In CARS Tour History

SOUTH BOSTON, VA – If you’ve got to have a season-ending race, it might as well be like the one shaping up at South Boston Speedway Saturday night.The AutosbyNelson.com CARS Tour 250 has attracted one of the largest Late Model Stock fields in the history of the touring series. Almost

The AutosbyNelson.com CARS Tour 250 has attracted one of the largest Late Model Stock fields in the history of the touring series. Almost one-third of the 25 Late Model entries are home-grown South Boston Speedway drivers.

Add to that tight point battles in both the Late Model and Super Late Model divisions and you’ve got the makings of a pair of barn-burners in the twin 125-lap races. It is the CARS Tour first visit to South Boston Speedway.

Grandstand gates open at 4:30 p.m. Saturday with Late Model qualifying at 5 p.m. and Super Late Model qualifying at 5:30. An on-track fan fest is scheduled for 6 p.m. with the 125-lap Late Model race starting at 7 p.m. followed by the 125-lap Super Late Model race.

Typically, when the touring CARS series visits a local track, it attracts one or two of the track’s drivers. Eight South Boston drivers have entered the Late Model event, including Bobby McCarty, Philip Morris, Stacy Puryear, Brandon Pierce, Mike Jones, Timothy Peters, Matt Bowling and Blake Stallings.

Morris, Bowling, and Peters are all former South Boston champions while Morris and Bowling both have won NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national championships. Morris, Puryear, McCarty, Peters and Bowling have won Late Model races at South Boston. Jones won three races in the Limited Sportsman division at South Boston this season.

“There are going to be more regulars in this race than ever,” said Layne Riggs, who has a one-point lead in the CARS Late Model championship chase headed into Saturday’s race. “And I expect them to be running up front. The South Boston competition is the best I’ve ever seen wherever they go.”

Ronald Hill and Justin Johnson, former South Boston drivers are now regulars on the CARS Late Model tour. Johnson is also a former South Boston track champion. Other familiar drivers entered are Deac McCaskill, Jake Crum, Josh Berry, Ryan Repko and Ty Gibbs, son of NASCAR Cup team owner and former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs

Riggs, the 15-year-old son of former NASCAR Cup driver Scott Riggs, had a second-place finish in his only career South Boston Late Model start last month, a race that was a test run for this Saturday’s race. Riggs’ biggest goal for Saturday is to finish one spot better than Berry and wrap up the championship

There are 13 cars entered in the Super Late Model race, where a championship will also be decided. Cole Rouse has an eight-point lead over Brandon Setzer headed into the 125-lap Super Late Model season finale.

Advance adult general admission tickets to the AutosbyNelson.com 250 are on sale in advance for $10 each. Adult general admission tickets on race day will be $15. Youth ages 7-12 will be admitted for $5 with children six and under admitted free.

Advance tickets can be purchased daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. by calling 877.440.1540.
