Hemphill Hurries at Kentucky; Wins Rain-Shortened 150

Brevak Daytona Test11(DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – January 15, 2011) - Second generation driver Brent Brevak and the No. 3 Ford returned to the track this week testing at Daytona International Speedway for the upcoming Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200. Brevak will attempt to start his first superspeedway event when the ARCA Racing Series returns to Daytona in February.  The team participated in the recent three day test at the 2.5-mile tri-oval making improvements each run.  Brevak finished the second day of testing in the 16th position with a best time of 183.816.

“I’m very excited to be here,” commented Brevak.  “To grow up watching my dad run laps around this place and now be here to run myself is pretty cool.  I’ve been at Salem, Michigan, Rockingham and Kentucky with ARCA and tested at Talladega, but nothing compares to Daytona.  Although we’ll need to find a little more speed running alone, the car feels great and is very stable in the draft.”

Ashland Wisconsin's Brent Brevak ended the 3 day ARCA test session on a positive note putting his #3 Ford in the top ten with a time of 48.960 seconds/speed183.824 mph.  "I feel fortunate to have been a part of the first group that got to test on the new surface here at Daytona," commented Brevak.  "Although I have nothing to compare to as far as not having raced here before, it was by far the smoothest surface I have ever been on.  I'm definitley looking forward to coming back in February.  Hopefully we’ll get the support we need to be here.  With the improvements we made over the course of the three days, I am confident we have a car that can be competitive."  

Brent Brevak, 22, from Ashland, WI, is currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire with a major in broadcast journalism.  Brevak is the son of 1990 ARCA champion Bob Brevak.
