ST. HELENA, Calif. (May 3, 2021) – For the second consecutive weekend, Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing hit the road the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, this time following the Greatest Show On Dirt to Illinois and Missouri for a three-day, three-race stretch at Jacksonville Speedway on April 29, as well as I-70 Motorsports Park on April 30-May 1. 

Despite capping his tripleheader outside of the top-ten, scored 19th during the second night of action at I-70, the St. Helena, California-native kicked-off his weekend with a bang, first nailing down a top-five performance on the bullring at Jacksonville, then scoring a top-ten during night one at I-70. The top-five, accomplished from the inside of row three, involved some perseverance, as the eight-time Outlaw winner faded early before recovering to finish fifth. 

Ultimately bumping his top-ten count to 14 on the season, Abreu’s top-ten at I-70 Motorsports Park resulted in a ninth-place outcome after starting eighth. It proved to be a solid ending to a consistent evening in western Missouri, as Abreu kicked-off the program with the 11th-fastest time during qualifying time trials, all before finishing third during his respective heat.

“Hats off to my team for never giving up. It’s been a pretty up and down year for my guys, but they never give up. That’s what it takes to be successful; never giving up when things are down. We’ll spend some quality time in the shop this week and get this Rowdy Energy car ready for Eldora,” Rico Abreu said, who owns eight top-five finishes in 23 starts thus far in 2021. “It’s going to be a fun weekend. I’m excited to get there.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with the #LetsRaceTwo doubleheader at Eldora Speedway on Friday and Saturday, May 7-8. Each night will award $10,000 top prizes. 

The “Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild will join Rico Abreu, returning to his iconic No. 22 for #LetsRaceTwo action at Eldora Speedway.
