David Gravel Stays Red Hot

September 23rd, 2014



PETERSEN MEDIA- David Gravel continued to stay hot last week with the World of Outlaws, as the Watertown, CT driver picked up three top-five finishes during the series’ four-race week.


“We had a really awesome week, but I really wanted to get us into victory lane,” Gravel said.


With the World of Outlaws invading the Kokomo Speedway last Tuesday night, Gravel got his night started off on the right foot as he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/3H Cattle No. 83 machine in 15th fastest, putting himself on the front row of his heat race.


Capitalizing on the starting position, Gravel would win his heat, and then run second in the dash, putting himself on the front row of the feature event. Following a lap two caution, Gravel would jump into the lead on the restart, and lead the next three circuits, until Donny Schatz was able to sneak by, dropping Gravel back to second.


A lap 18 caution saw a charging Dale Blaney get by Gravel on the restart, and Gravel found himself in an entertaining battle with Shane Stewart, as the dueled for third. On the 31st lap, Stewart won the battle, putting Gravel back in the fourth spot, though he stayed glued to Stewart, and continued to fight. As the race came to a close, Gravel crossed the stripe with his first Top-Five of the week as he held on to fourth at the line.


Wednesday night saw the series travel to the Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, IN, and Gravel timed in ninth fastest.


Winning his heat race, and running fifth in the dash, Gravel put his Mobil1/FK Rod Ends/Weld Wheels entry in another great position, as he lined up in the third row for the 25-lap main event.


Gravel had another great night going at Terre Haute, but a flat tire past the half way point, gave him his no time in the work area relegated him to a 19th place finish.


Friday night at the Eldora Speedway, Gravel went out late for time trials, and timed in 14th fastest, again putting himself on the front row of his heat race, which he would go on to win. Finishing eighth in the dash, Gravel would start out of the second row during the feature event, and showed that he had  a very strong machine.


Working around the Eldora cushion, Gravel was able to climb to the fifth spot while battling Shane Stewart, and Paul McMahan, giving him and his Roth Motorsports team their second top-five finish of the week.

Saturday night the busy week came to a close in Sarver, PA as Gravel and company took to the Lernerville Speedway for the Commonwealth Clash.


Lining up in the second row of the feature event, Gravel quickly jumped into the second spot as he chased after race leader, Joey Saldana, on what was a fast racing surface.


Looking for an opening to get by Saldana, Gravel was unable to find one, but was relentless in his efforts, as he stalked Saldana’s every move


As the laps clicked off, Gravel was unable to do anything with Saldana, and closed his weekend out with a second place finish.


“We were great all week, and were really strong at Lernerville,” he added. “At Lernerville something got into a nozzle line late in the feature, and our engine started blowing up, so we were lucky to hold on. I can’t thank my guys enough for their hard work, and Dennis and Teresa Roth for their continued support.”


The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, 3H Cattle,  Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2014.
