SKAGIT STINGER: CJB Begins September with Hard Charging Performance Out West
Grays Harbor wrapped up Labor Day weekend with Willamette and Silver Dollar Speedway up next

CARLISLE, PA. - September 4, 2018 - Another World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series weekend, another pair of top-ten finishes for the #5 CJB Motorsports entry and driver David Gravel.

The Skagit Speedway near Alger, Wash. hosted two nights of racing competition that began on Friday, August 31st. The Outlaw Energy Showdown opener saw Gravel time in 22nd, finish 6th in his heat race and roll off in the main event in 16th.

“We just got behind again qualifying,” Gravel said, whom owns an average finish of 6.95 this season. “That just sets you back. We race well but we have to get qualified better.”

The tour returned to the racy track for a $12,000-to-win finale the following night. Gravel timed in 16th before finishing 6th in his heat race again.

“Nearly same results as the night before,” Gravel explained. “We were good at the end and really made some headway.”

An event at Grays Harbor Raceway near Elma, Wash. on Labor Day itself capped off the weekend. The #5 machine timed in 4th, finished 2nd in the heat race and 6th in the dash. 

“We actually got timed in well,” commented Gravel. “That got us a good spot in the heat race, so that we could transfer into the dash. The car wasn’t where we wanted it for those two events but, the beauty of making the dash is that you get another crack at the setup. For the feature. We were really good and could have had something for them if the race had been longer.”

Up next is a trip down the west coast as the tour visits Willamette (Ore) Speedway on Wednesday, September 5th before pulling into Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. For the annual Gold Cup Race of Champions. The team is looking for their 6th win of the Outlaw season.

“Williamette is a fun place to race,” Gravel said. “There is some banking there and the track usually puts on a good show. Gold Cup is a fun race and a crown jewel to win. We just need to get timed in well there so we can get our nights off on a good foot. That is the key.”
