VICTORY AT LAST: Stewart and CJB Get First Outlaw Win of Year at Nashville
Fairbury, River Cities and Granite City setup short track tri-fecta
CARLISLE, PA. - June 4, 2019 - No matter how many victories a driver and team score on the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series tour, each and every one of them is special.
Just ask Shane Stewart and the CJB Motorsports team as they finally broke through for their first Outlaw win together on the second night of the Music City Outlaws Nationals at the Nashville (Tenn.) Fairgrounds Speedway on Saturday, June 1st. The event paid a cool $25,000 to win and featured a unique guitar themed trophy.
The team raced at the the famed facility the night before. The #5 car timed in 8th, finished 5th in his heat race and finished 19th in a challenging feature.
The following night, Stewart timed in 2nd, won his heat race and finished 2nd in the dash. From there, the #5 machine had a front row seat for the feature.
"Big win for our team in Nashville this past weekend," 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 all needed that pretty badly plus it was on a huge stage! Couldn't be happier for my team. It makes all the hard work worth it."
With an Outlaw victory in hand, the team now looks to continue a strong wave of momentum into Fairbury (Illi.) Speedway on Tuesday, June 4th. From there, stops at River Cities Speedway near Grand Forks, N.D. on Friday, June, 7th and Granite City Speedway near Sauk Rapids, Minn. on Saturday, June 8th complete a trek up north.
"Looking forward to the next few short tracks," Stewart said. "Seems like we are getting better and better at these types of tracks. Happy we are finally getting some races in and the swing of summer races are on the way!"
