BIG E GIVES CJB A BOOST: Strong Night Has Team Aiming High for Homecoming
2nd night of #LetsRaceTwo delayed; Pennsylvania trip up next for CJB
CARLISLE, PA. - May 13, 2019 - Though the final stat line may not fully show it, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series first stop at the legendary Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, OH provided a much needed boost for CJB Motorsports and driver Shane Stewart.
Friday, May 10th was the opening night at the half-mile for the series in 2019. Stewart took his first Quick Time award of the season and then backed it up with his first heat race win since Volusia in February. The team made the dash, started 7th in the feature and came home 13th.
"It felt really good to qualify well," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We are slowly getting these engines figured out and Barry has been working hard on that part of it. I was really tight in the feature and couldn't turn. That track has changed a lot in the last two years."
The following night of scheduled action at Eldora was hampered by Mother Nature. That program will now be made up on Wednesday, July 17th. That will give the series a unique, four day weekend for the annual Kings Royal event.
The team now heads for Pennsylvania for races on their own turf. Wednesday, May 15th will see the series visit Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown before a two day show at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg on Friday, May 17th and Saturday May 18th. The weekend culminates with a stop at Weedsport (NY) Speedway on Sunday, May 19th.
"Really looking forward to getting to Pennsylvania, especially with Barry in my back pocket," Stewart said. "I have been getting more comfortable at Lincoln and Williams Grove so I'm excited."
