Spencer Bayston & CJB Motorsports Ready To Kick Off ’22 WoO Campaign At Volusia
Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / CJB MOTORSPORTS – CARLISLE, PA – The 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign blasts off in less than two weeks, and Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston is more than ready to get the season rolling.
At the helm of the CJB Motorsports, Signing Day Sports, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, No. 5, Bayston will chase Rookie of the Year honors with the Greatest Show On Dirt, kicking things off with a three-day blockbuster at Volusia Speedway Park in De Leon Springs, Florida, on Thursday through Saturday, February 10-12.
Headlined with three, full programs, the DIRTcar Nationals trio will open a busy winter slate for Bayston and his fellow World of Outlaws competitors, ultimately leading the former USAC National Midget champion and his Pennsylvania-based outfit from north central Florida to areas within Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and eventually, California.
“We’re really excited to get this season started. I’m feeling really confident about this opportunity, and I’m certain this team has the knowledge and experience to help me make the most of my rookie campaign,” Spencer Bayston noted. “With people like Chad Clemens and Barry Jackson in my corner, it’s tough not to be confident.”
Although a rookie by touring standards, Bayston is far from inexperienced. The 23-year-old owns a pair of victories with the World of Outlaws, most recently during Nittany Showdown action at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, October 9. The $15,000 triumph, acquired in just his fourth start with CJB Motorsports, was accomplished in fantastic fashion, crossing under the final checkers by a margin of victory equaling nearly five seconds.
Bayston’s first-ever World of Outlaws victory occurred just three months prior, leading the final 33 laps of the coveted Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park for a $10,000 payday. The win, outdueling Series champion Brad Sweet, was also a first-ever for Bayston’s team at the time, Sam McGhee Motorsports.
In addition to his World of Outlaws achievements, Bayston is also a five-time All Star Circuit of Champions winner over the course of his young career, two of which accumulated during the 2021 season. Bayston’s first All Star triumph of the year occurred during Sharon Speedway’s Lou Blaney Memorial in mid-July, followed by a $10,000 Attica Ambush prize over Labor Day weekend. Like his Brad Doty Classic victory, each of his recent All Star wins were aboard Sam McGhee’s No. 11.
“I actually reached out to a handful of different drivers and asked them what to expect as a rookie on the Outlaw tour. They were all really supportive and gave me a lot of valuable insight,” Bayston continued. “We’re going to give it everything we got. I’m ready to get to Volusia.”
