Revolution Racing Driver Brunelli Goes West reports that Revolution Racing Team Member "Jessica Brunelli is set to make her debut next month in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, competing at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on June 11 and at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., on June 25, according to a Racers Drive announcement.

The 18-year-old high school senior is from Hayward, Calif.; but relocated to Mooresville, N.C., to participate in NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity program.

Brunelli will be teaming with Naake Motorsports of Roseville, Calif., and the Stephanie Bellotti Foundation. The foundation was formed by Stephanie’s parents after they tragically lost their daughter in an automobile accident. Their organization now provides funding for Teen Driving Clinics, to at give young drivers competence and confidence aimed at keeping them safe and under control in an emergency situation.

Brunelli has been competing since she was 7 years old – racing go-karts, quads, Modifieds and Late Models. She is in her second year driving for Revolution Racing in the D4D program and competes in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. In 2010, she registered six top-five and 10 top-10 finishes in 19 races in that series.

In 2009, she competed in the Modified division at All American Speedway in Roseville – where she finished third in points and had 10 top-five and 13 top-10 finishes. She also raced in two Late Model events at the Roseville track, notching a top-10 finish.

Brunelli has also been involved in several driver development programs, including the Lyn St. James Women in the Winner’s Circle Academy.

Naake Motorsports is headed by Mike Naake, a veteran driver, car builder and shock specialist on the West Coast. Naake’s No. 88 Chevrolet finished fifth in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race at Roseville in April.

The Racers Drive team is seeking additional marketing partners to help fund this operation. For more information about the program, contact Mike Cesario at or 408-220-3167. Racers Drive is a Los Gatos, Calif.-based motorsports marketing management organization."
