17 in 17: Gravel Wheels the CJB Machine to Another Win in New York
Trio of races on tap as the team chases their 20th victory of the season
CARLISLE, PA. - October 10, 2017 - One of CJB Motorsports stated goals was to achieve double digit wins in a season. By taking the checkered flag at Fulton (N.Y) Speedway, David Gravel and the CJB team have registered the 17th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series of the season, and their 19th of 2017 overall.
The lone race of the weekend for the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt’ was held on Saturday, October 7th and was a part of the annual NAPA SuperDIRT week. The #5 team timed in 5th, won their heat race and finished the Craftsman Club dash in the 4th position.
“We timed in where we needed to be and that got our night off to a great start,” Gravel said. “We ran well enough a good spot in the feature. The track changed quite a bit so I was moving my line around a bit. We just didn’t quit and had to endure some restarts but we made it through. I’m really proud of this team. Another win is awesome!”
The team has now won four of their last six events and will look to add to that total as they chase win #20 during a three-race swing in Pennsylvania and New York. On Saturday, Oct. 14th, the tour visits Port Royal (P.A.) Speedway before heading to Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway and Ransomville (N.Y.) Speedway on the following two evenings.
“Port Royal is a track where I feel like we run well,” Gravel said. “We won an event there last year. They’ve poured a lot of money into that place and it’s a really nice place. Same thing for Weedsport (Speedway.) Looking forward to that as well. Ransomville (Speedway) will be new for all of us. We, as a team, just really want to add more wins and cap off the year. We feel as though we should have great speed at the tracks that are coming up so hopefully we’ll get a win or two.”
