CONCORD, N.C. – Rev Racing driver Daniel Suarez will miss three NASCAR K&N Pro Series East events in order to focus his efforts on capturing the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series championship.
This decision will allow Suarez to focus his efforts and attention on maintaining his current points lead as the series heads into the Desafio, the official playoffs of the series. Though Suarez will not participate in upcoming races at Columbus Motor Speedway, Greenville Pickens Speedway and Virginia Int’l Raceway this season due to schedule conflicts with the Mexico Toyota Series, he will return with the team in the remaining K&N Pro Series East events.
“Rev Racing aims to advance and support the development of drivers in the program and beyond. We are happy to be part of this development and growth [for Suarez],” said team owner Max Siegel. “We are proud to see him achieve success at such an esteemed level across all series in which he competes and look forward to watching his progression through the remainder of the season and beyond.”
In Suarez’s absence, NASCAR Drive for Diversity graduate and former Rev Racing team member Bryan Ortiz will pilot the No. 6 Toyota at VIR and Greenville Pickens. Ortiz competed in the 2013 season for Rev Racing after a three-year stent in the program, accumulating eight top-5 and 21 top-10 victories. The 25-year-old, Puerto Rico native will compete at Virginia Int’l Raceway Aug. 16 and Greenville Speedway Sept. 6. Ryan Gifford will be running the No. 6 Toyota at Columbus Motor Speedway this Saturday.
