SEPTEMBER SLAYER: Gravel Add’s Top-5’s at Night Before the Crowns & Commonwealth Clash

September 28th, 2016
Champion Racing Oil Williams Grove National Open up next for the Pennsylvania based team
CARLISLE, PA. – September 28, 2016 –  Winning races is absolutely key to winning championships. Another key element is solid, top-5 finishes. David Gravel and the CJB Motorsports team are rapidly achiving championship by both of those metrics. Though they did not add to their win count, the racing weekend featuring stops at Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway netted the team two more top-5 runs.
“Our car was pretty good at Eldora,” said Gravel, pilot of the Big Game Treestands, J.R.C. Transportation Inc., C&S Lawn & Landscape #5. “We won there earlier in the summer and ran well in the spring. We had a good car but the 8 invert in the dash set us back a bit. Our car was great.We just didn’t get upt front and contend for the win. It was still a very good night.”
An overnight trip of 326 miles took the #5 team from Rossburg, Ohio to Sarver, Pennsylvania and the Lernerville Speedway for the second time in 2016. In July, Gravel and the team took home the $25,000 top prize in the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup event.
 “Lernerville is another place that we have won at this year,” said Gravel, who has an average finish of 6th in 2016. “Once again, we had a really good run and I am very pleased with it. The track was racy and we had some fun. Another top-5 is good for us since we’re trying to finish out the year strong.”
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will remain in the Keystone state as it moves to Mechanicsburg and the Williams Grove Speedway for the annual Champion Racing Oil National Open.
“The National Open is a really special race,” said Gravel, the 2014 winner of the event. “It’s a crown jewel event in our sport. I’ve been really lucky to have a win in this race. I certainly want to add another one with the CJB crew. It would be and extremely large win for our team since the shop is so close.”
