Justin Whitesell Earns Victory At Sportsmans Speedway!
Austintown, OH – 8/20/12 – ‘The Man From Austintown’ earned his third career 305/Outlaw Sprint Warrior victory Sunday night, August 19th, at Sportsmans Speedway in Knox, Pennsylvania. Justin Whitesell, who was victorious at Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania earlier this year, picked up the victory during his third night of competition in just as many days! Whitesell piloted his FullyInjected.com/Superior Auto Body ’17’ at a total of three different ovals this past weekend, in two different states; earning two top five finishes which included a victory on Sunday night!
The Austintown, Ohio native started his most recent weekend of competition at the Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio for a special 305/Outlaw Sprint Warrior event on Friday evening, August 17th. Whitesell would capture his first top five finish of the weekend by finishing 5th at the Orrville oval. The familiar orange and white ’17’ would then return to action Saturday evening, August 18th, at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway near Imperial, Pennsylvania. Whitesell entered his 5.3 liter GM powered sprint car against the invading ‘410’ sprinters for their second appearance of the season of the big half-mile. Although greatly under powered, and inexperienced at ‘Dirt’s Monster Half Mile,’ Whitesell managed to finish 13th in the running order out of the 21 sprinters signed-in. Whitesell would cap-off his busy weekend in Ohio and Pennsylvania by earning the 305/Outlaw Sprint Warrior victory at Sportsmans Speedway in Knox, Pennsylvania on Sunday evening, August 19th. This was Whitesell’s first career win at the Sunday night venue.
‘The Man From Austintown’ will be back in action next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for what is scheduled to be another three-race weekend for the FullyInjected.com team. Whitesell plans to be in action Friday evening, August 24th, at the Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania with the regular ‘410’ sprint car division . Racing with the regular ‘410’ competitors at the Sarver oval will help better prepare the ’17’ team for the upcoming 305/Outlaw Sprint Warrior events at the venue.
“I love racing with the ‘410’ guys!” explained Whitesell, “I gain so much respect for them by racing with them…I learn so much and getting some seat time at Lernerville this Friday will help me prepare for the upcoming ‘305’ shows…so excited to get back to Lernerville!”
Next weekend will also include a familiar trip to Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania on Saturday evening, August 25th. Whitesell will be in action with the regular 305/Outlaw Sprint Warrior division for a $500-t0-win program on Saturday night; c0-headlining with the invading All-Star Circuit of Champions. Whitesell will then wrap up the weekend with a return to Sportsmans Speedway on Sunday evening, August 26th, to hopefully defend his recent victory.
