Newsmaker of the Week // Rico Abreu

Who else but Rico?

 Rico Abreu made major news on many fronts this past weekend.  He got the Chili Bowl off to a good start by winning his Wednesday night preliminary, a race that had thousands cheering his name.

 Two days later, he announcd at a press conference that he has a full time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ride for this year, and for a premium team at that.

 Then he won the Chili Bowl with a late race pass of Bryan Clauson, taking his second win in one of hte off-season’s highest profile races.

 And his 24th birthday isn’t until the end of this month.

 His career has been meteoric, shows no signs of slowing down  – and the racing season has hardly started!
