ST. HELENA, Calif. (April 29, 2019) - It was not the weekend Abreu wanted, but he is happy to be back in the Midwest.

Rico Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car, made the long haul from the West Coast to the Midwest during the recent week and joined the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for a trio of events on Friday through Sunday, April 26-28.

Despite much of the weekend resulting in a wash with action at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 getting canceled on Saturday before wet weather took out Last Chance Showdown and feature action at Jacksonville Speedway on Sunday, Abreu did have the opportunity to compete with the Greatest Show On Dirt on Friday at Lake Ozark (Mo.) Speedway. Although Abreu did not qualify for main event competition, the St. Helena, Calif., native is pleased to be back in the Midwest.

“That wasn’t how we wanted to start our Midwest tour, but we have a lot of racing left. I’m just really happy to be here racing with some of the best in the country,” Rico Abreu explained, who owns nine top-ten finishes in 16 feature starts this season. “We have a lot of races circled on our calendar, but we are going to take things week by week.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2019 schedule with a full slate of competition scheduled for Friday and Saturday, May 3 & 4. Exact destinations have yet to be confirmed, but more information will be posted in the near future.
