Spencer Bayston & CJB Motorsports Persevere In Pevely; Knoxville Raceway Visit Next
Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / CJB MOTORSPORTS – CARLISLE, PA – Open wheel fans from around the world are finding out quickly that one can never count out Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports, and the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based open wheel outfit certainly proved that narrative correct during the recent weekend, powering ahead from 22nd to finish eighth at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, on Friday, April 14.
Bayston, still hunting for his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season, was forced to start 22nd after missing a transfer position in his respective heat race. The former Bristol Bash champion went on to finish second in the Last Chance Showdown placing the Lebanon, Indiana, native on the outside of row 11 for the 40-lap feature.
Although a great display of perseverance, Bayston’s A-Main campaign did not go on without any challenges, as he narrowly missed a multi-car incident which would have surely ended his charge.
Other recent highlights include finishing seventh during High Limit Sprint Car Series competition at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, on Tuesday, April 11; he started fifth.
“Much of our focus lately has been on getting ourselves out of holes when they occur, and that’s exactly what we did on Friday. We certainly battled our way out of a hole and that’s something to be proud of,” Spencer Bayston, driver of the TrueTimber Camo, Rothco, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, Highlands’ Power Sports, High Performance Lubricants, No. 5 sprint car, said. “Our team has a ‘no giving up’ attitude and I absolutely love that about our program. Nights like those at Pevely are going to happen, and taking them on like we did is only going to prove beneficial to us all year. I’m really looking forward to Knoxville this weekend and seeing what kind of speed we have there.”
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with an early season doubleheader at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, April 21-22.
