Bayston & CJB Motorsports Run Well At Devil’s Bowl’s Texas Outlaw Nationals; US 36 & 81 Speedway Next
Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / CJB MOTORSPORTS – CARLISLE, PA – Back-to-back nights of competition resulted in back-to-back top-ten finishes for Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports, capping the two-day Texas Outlaw Nationals at the historic Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, with eighth and ninth-place finishes, respectively.
In fact, Bayston was a top-ten threat from beginning to end, as the reigning World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year started no worse than eighth in the weekend pair, that being in the $20,000-to-win finale.
Bayston’s Texas top-ten sweep not only padded his season’s stat chart, bumping his World of Outlaws top-ten total to five in his first ten starts, but the Lebanon, Indiana, native is now tied for seventh in the World of Outlaws championship standings, accumulating the same point total as ten-time Series champion, Donny Schatz.
“Top-ten finishes and maintaining consistency are never a bad thing. The track didn’t allow for a ton of passing this weekend, which is kinda disappointing because I’m confident we may have been better than where we finished,” Bayston, ace of the TrueTimber Camo, Rothco, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, No. 5 sprint car, said. “These new tires are taking some time to get a hold of. We thought we were where we needed to be, but after this weekend, we may have to start taking a different approach.”
Bayston’s weekend stat sheet also included a dash appearance in Friday’s Texas Outlaw Nationals opener; he finished sixth. That same evening, Bayston recorded the fourth-fastest time in qualifying time trials.
“We’re determined to better ourselves,” Bayston added. “We plan to swap these top-tens for top-fives.”
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with another action-packed weekend through the Midwest, this time visiting US 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri, and 81 Speedway in Wichita, Kansas, on Friday and Saturday, April 7-8. The stop at 81 Speedway – the fifth annual Jason Johnson Classic – will award a $20,000 payday.
