2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Standings: 8th | 1030 points
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
CARLISLE, Pa. (March 27, 2023) – Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston may have been forced to face-off at two new facilities during the recent weekend, following the Greatest Show On Dirt to Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama, and Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi, but the 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year was well prepared and well rehearsed, piloting the CJB Motorsports, TrueTimber Camo, Rothco, JRC Transportation, No. 5 sprint car to a solid third-place outcome in Talladega’s Sprint Car Showdown on Friday, March 24.
Although just short of attaining his first triumph of the season, Bayston, who started fifth on the evening grid, did everything he could to make things interesting at the “Hornet’s Nest,” ultimately powering ahead to pressure defending Series champion, Brad Sweet, and eventual Talladega winner, Buddy Kofoid. The podium result was Bayston’s first of the season, igniting the evening with the second-fastest qualifying time and a heat race victory.
Despite all efforts, Bayston was unable to match his Talladega performance at Magnolia Motor Speedway the following evening; he finished 13th after starting from the inside of row eight.
“We were faced with two new tracks this weekend, but to come out of the box and battle for a podium in my first visit to Talladega is pretty special…a true testament to the work this crew has been putting in. Overall, just a really solid performance by this CJB Motorsports team. We were well balanced and I was able to make some good decisions that kept us in contention,” Spencer Bayston explained. “Magnolia caught us by surprise in some respect. Things were a little different than what we expected which, unfortunately, put us too far behind too early. It was a battle to claw ourselves back out of the hole. We’re racing with the best drivers and teams in the world, so if you find yourself in a hole early, it can be tough to get back out again. It’s our goal to have an overall package to get us out of those holes.”
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the two-day Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, March 31-April 1.
