SPEEDING UP: Northeast Swing Continues Momentum Boost for CJB Motorsports
Multiple top-5's continues strong run for CJB; North Carolina & Indiana up next
CARLISLE, PA. - May 22, 2019 - As the calendar rolls towards the summer months, the temperature isn't the only thing rising.
CJB Motorsports and Shane Stewart took to Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown, Pa. on Wednesday, May 15th for their first race of the season as a "home team." The organization calls Carlisle, Pa. home so any race in the Keystone state carries an extra level of urgency.
Stewart timed in 15th, rallied from 8th to 4th in his heat race and charged from 14th to 5th in the feature.
"I thought our week in Pennsylvania went really 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 had two top-5 finishes and we qualified pretty well at Williams Grove. Barry and I are starting to mesh more and more. Sometimes these things take time but we continue to grow as a team."
On Friday, May 17th, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series headed to WIlliams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg, Pa. for the first of two nights of racing during the annual Morgan Cup weekend.
Stewart and the #5 machine timed in 7th, finished 2nd in their heat race, finished 3rd in the dash and ended up 4th in the feature.
The team was back at it the following night where they timed in 5th, finished 4th in their heat race and 11th in the feature.
A quick jaunt up to Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway was on tap for Sunday, May 19th until heavy rains forced series and track officials to cancel the event.
The Outlaws then competed at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J. on Tuesday, May 21st. Stewart timed in 14th, finished 4th in his heat race and moved from 11th to 9th in the feature.
The Outlaws will continue a busy, "Month of May," with stops in North Carolina and Indiana. A two day show awaits the, 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' at the Dirt Track at Charlotte near Concord, N.C. on Friday, May 24th and Saturday, May 25th. The weekend culminates with a Memorial Day tilt at Lawrenceburg, (Ind.) Speedway on Monday, May 27th.
"I have had good runs at both Charlotte and Lawrenceburg so I am looking forward to getting back to both tracks," Stewart said. "Being in Charlotte for two days will be a little different but the crowds should be good considering it is (World) 600 weekend."
