Rev Racing Prepared To Conquer Iowa Speedway

Rev Racing is ready to hit the track will head into this weekend’s race at Iowa Speedway with the advantage of having two solid test sessions. After extensive testing last week at Bowman Gray and a few subsequent days to fine-tune cars, expectations are high for the Rev Racing team as it heads to Iowa for the Casey’s General Store 150.

Director of Competition Jefferson Hodges is confident that testing prior to the race will produce positive results at Iowa. “Anytime the drivers and their crews can work together, it’s for the benefit of the team. Even though we couldn’t test at Iowa, the opportunity to test at Bowman Grey was a chance for the drivers and their crews to continue to get acclimated to one another. Any extra time that our drivers can get on the track is a positive for us,” said Hodges.

Ryan Gifford (No. 2 UTI/NASCAR Tech Toyota) – All eyes will be on Gifford this coming weekend, as he will be competing in both the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and NASCAR Nationwide Series. In 2013, Gifford’s two NKNPSE races at Iowa produced polar opposite results. In his first stent, Gifford qualified in the top-10, but finished outside of the top-20. However, his second stent at Iowa a few months later produced opposite results; Gifford took the green flag from the 20th position and took the checkered flag in 6th. Additionally, Gifford secured a top-10 finish in his NNS debut that same weekend. Heading into the Casey’s General Stores 150, Gifford and the No. 2 Toyota are looking to surpass last year’s top-10s and secure a top-5 in each series. Gifford is currently 21st in the NKNPSE point standings.

Daniel Suarez (No. 6 Rev Racing Toyota) – After tire and battery problems put a damper on his NASCAR Trifecta at Richmond in late April, Suarez returns to the track to reassure his fans that one weekend is not determinant of the entire season. Suarez finished his NASCAR Trifecta with a Mexico Toyota Series win in his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. Now, Suarez is looking to utilize that same driving prowess to collect another victory here in the United States for Rev Racing. With his current 4th place point standing, Suarez has his eye on the championship and is ready for a win at Iowa to put him one race closer to his goal.

Sergio Peña (No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota) – Peña’s last outing resulted in an accident at RIR. Peña is now looking to redeem himself, and return to the form that garnered him his first top-10 at Greenville. Historically, Iowa Speedway hasn’t been the easiest track for Peña. However, having had the opportunity to test the No. 4 Toyota Camry prior to the race and subsequently modify the vehicle to his liking, Peña enters this weekend’s race looking to rewrite history. Peña is currently 19th in the NKNPSE point standings.

Mackena Bell (No. 21 Special Smiles/Lung Force Toyota) – Iowa has historically been a middle-of-the-road track for Bell. In her last two outings at Iowa, Bell took the checkered flag in the mid-teens. However, with three weeks of preparation and few hours behind the wheel of the No. 21 Special Smiles/Lung Force Toyota, Bell and her crew are hoping to finally secure a top-10 at Iowa Speedway.

Jay Beasley (No. 42 Rev Racing Toyota) – Newcomer Beasley will be competing at Iowa Speedway for the first time. Despite his inexperience at Iowa Speedway, testing has made Beasley optimistic about his chances of securing his first top-10 in the NKNPSE.

“Testing was great. I’m really looking forward to the race. The car is looking good. The car is going to be dialed. We’re excited,” said Beasley.
