The Rutherford, CA driver has had a successful 2015 to this point, claiming wins at Stockton, Silver Dollar Speedway, and Thunderbowl, in addition to his Chili Bowl win in Tulsa.  Abreu has been behind the wheel of numerous types of cars this season, including midgets, 410 and 360 sprints, super late models, outlaw karts, and the NASCAR K&N Series.

Saturday night at Macon will be busy with the two POWRi classes in addition to a Faster Pastor race and four other divisions of racing.  Joining the POWRi Midgets and Micros will be the Billingsley Towing Modifieds, B-Mods, Street Stocks, and Hornets.
