Newsmaker of the Week // Rico Abreu

Rico Abreu is one red hot 410 Sprint driver right now, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

After winning the $20,000 Williams Grove Summer Nationals a week ago Saturday, Abreu passed Kyle Larson in the High Limit Sprint Car race at Grandview Speedway Wednesday, earning $23,000 and change.

Still not done, Abreu won an All Star Sprint race at Knoxville Saturday, worth another $8,000 making it three big wins in eight days. Abreu is peaking at a time when the 410 Sprint schedule is chock full of high paying races.

He’s a favorite to win anywhere he races right now, and that’s the quality of a driver at the top of their game – and a Newsmaker!
