Gifford Returns to Nationwide

Over the past 5 years, Ryan has leveraged the tools and guidance provided by NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity and Rev Racing’s academy-style program to become a staple in the world of automobile racing. In 2010, he became the first African-American in K&N Pro Series East history to earn a pole when he accomplished the feat in the inaugural race at Martinsville. In 2013, Gifford captured his first NKNPSE victory at Richmond International Raceway. That same year he also made his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut with Richard Childress Racing and secured a 9th place finish. And just last week the 24-year-old from Winchester, Tenn. Native was named a member of the NASCAR Next class for the second consecutive year; an honor reserved for individuals NASCAR deems the next superstars of the sport. Now, Rev Racing is proud to announce that Ryan Gifford will make his long awaited return to the NASCAR Nationwide Series with team, Biagi DenBeste Racing.
