David Levine, showed no signs of a driver that hasn’t been in a racecar since last November at Homestead. Levine wheeled the Revant Optics No. 98 for Mason Mitchell Motorsports to a fifth place finish in Saturday’s Twilight 150 presented by Unique Pretzels at the New Jersey Motorsports Park.
Levine was able to work around two cars in the closing laps to earn his second career ARCA top-five finish and his first top-five on a road course.
“We had a solid weekend from start to finish,” Levine stated after the 67 lap event. “We got punted off the track a few times and were still able to rally and earn a top-five.”
“I can’t thank everyone from Mason Mitchell Motorsports and Revant Optics for all of their hard work and effort. I didn’t even know I was going to race at the beginning of the week. It was great being back behind the wheel of a car. Hopefully, I’ll get another opportunity in the future.”
The Highland Park, Illinois native qualified for the 67 lap event in the third position earlier in Menards pole qualifying presented by Ansell.
Levine would get pushed back on the initial start to the 10th position. He would exert patience during the early stages of the event and work his way back inside the top-10 for the remainder of the event
During the final laps Levine would move around Kyle Weatherman and Josh Williams to cross the stripe in fifth.
