Pérez returns to Rev Racing for his second full ARCA Menards Series season after a runner-up finish in the championship in 2023. Despite missing the first race of the year at Daytona International Speedway due to age restrictions, Pérez was impressive throughout the season.
He earned 10 top-five finishes and 15 top-10 finishes, with a best finish of second at the Illinois State Fairgrounds and Salem Speedway. He earned one General Tire Pole Award, which came at Michigan International Speedway, where he led a season-high 43 laps before falling out of the race due to an engine failure.

Scott will make the move to the ARCA Menards Series in 2024 after competing full-time for Rev Racing in the ARCA Menards Series East in 2023. In eight races this year, Scott earned five top-five and seven top-10 finishes with a best finish of second at Michigan’s Flat Rock Speedway.
He also made six starts in the ARCA Menards Series in 2023, which included an impressive performance in the opening race of the year at Daytona. In that event, Scott led 14 laps and was in contention to win until the final lap before he ultimately finished fourth. In his six ARCA Menards Series starts, Scott earned four top-five and five top-10 finishes.
The 2024 ARCA Menards Series season will get underway at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 1:30 p.m. ET. The event will be televised live on FS1 and the Fox Sports App.
