FINAL World of Outlaws Standings: 8th | 8658 | Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

CARLISLE, Pa. (November 7, 2022) – Officially locking up the 2022 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year award with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, Lebanon, Indiana’s Spencer Bayston capped his first-ever season with the Greatest Show On Dirt with back-to-back World Finals top-ten appearances at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, finishing eighth on each occasion on Friday and Saturday, November 4-5. 

For Bayston, ace of the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based CJB Motorsports/TrueTimber Camo No. 5 sprint car, the pair of top-ten outcomes boosted his season’s total to 39, 16 of which tallied within the top-five. Adding even more luster to their year end statistics, Bayston finished eighth in the final World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series standings.

Bayston and CJB Motorsports, led by veteran mechanic Barry Jackson, earned two victories in their World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year pursuit, collecting a winning share of $35,000 including a $25,000 check in Bristol Motor Speedway’s Bristol Bash on April 30. The team’s second triumph occurred at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on June 22.

“Definitely a bittersweet weekend for this CJB Motorsports team,” said Spencer Bayston. “I’m proud of everything we’ve accomplished including the Rookie of the Year award. I feel that we’ve made a lot of progress this season, but we still left a lot on the table. I think that makes us even hungrier for the new year.

“Having the opportunity to compete for a top tier team like CJB Motorsports with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is something every young racer dreams about. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities that Chad Clemens and Barry Jackson have given me. I’m excited to see what the future brings us.”

Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will rejoin the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series in 2023.
