2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Standings: 8th | 5740 points
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
CARLISLE, Pa. (August 14, 2023) – Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports continued their impressive August stretch with an all-too important and successful display at the “Granddaddy of them All,” ultimately concluding Knoxville Raceway’s coveted Knoxville Nationals with an A-Main appearance, just missing the top-ten with an 11th-place rally after starting 13th. Bayston’s effort in the 50-lap, $185,000-to-win Knoxville Nationals finale followed a top-notch preliminary outcome on Thursday, ending the 25-lapper on the podium after starting tenth on the grid.
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, finished third in his preliminary podium appearance, battling to second at one point before settling for one position back.
Speaking of second, a runner-up finish during Bayston’s preliminary heat race, mixed in with his eventual feature podium, would secure the former World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year and Lebanon, Indiana, native with a Saturday A-Main starting position; he was “locked in.”
“An incredible week for us overall. Being able to lock ourselves into Saturday’s A-Main through our preliminary night on Thursday was a huge relief and much deserved for this CJB Motorsports team. Especially after racing from tenth to third…that made for an exciting celebration,” Bayston explained. “This was my very first Knoxville Nationals A-Main ‘lock in’ and it’s something I’ve been trying to do for five seasons. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this team and having the chance to work under Chad Clemens and Barry Jackson. Their happiness on Thursday night made my entire season.”
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2023 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the 45th Annual Jackson Nationals at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, on Thursday through Saturday, August 17-19. The week’s finale will award a $25,000 payday.
