Win Number Five for the No. 5 of David Gravel

Plymouth, IN – April 28, 2017 – After starting seventh on the field at the beginning of the 35-lap feature at Plymouth Speedway, David Gravel worked his way up to third-place just shy of the halfway mark. It was with three laps to go Gravel took advantage of a bobble by the No. 87 of Aaron Reutzel to put him in the runner-up spot, but he wasn’t done just yet. Setting his sights on the leader of No. 7 of Jason Sides, Gravel squeezed his way under Sides as the two entered Turn 3. Gravel completed the move en route his fifth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win of the 2017 season.

With rain all around the Plymouth-IN area, the stars of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series were determined to put on a great show for the Plymouth Speedway fans – and they did just that. Early in the evening’s schedule, 26 cars of the 29 that entered the event all were quicker than the track record in hot laps. When it came to qualifying, Parker Price-Miller set fast time and in the process set a new track record with a lap of 11.079-second, eclipsing the previous record set in 2016 by Logan Schuchart.

It was Jason Sides and Donny Schatz showing the way to the green flag for the Feature event at Plymouth Speedway. Just as the 24-car field was making their way around the track for the first lap of the 35-lap Feature event, the No. 41 of Jason Johnson went for a tumble in-between Turns 3 and 4, bringing out the red flag and setting up a complete restart. Johnson would head to the work area and rejoin the field after some work to his No. 41 machine.

Reutzel Takes on World of Outlaws in Indiana after Knoxville Podium

CLUTE, Texas (April 28, 2017) – With Mother Nature flexing early-season muscle, Aaron Reutzel and the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC Fundz No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team found themselves at Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway for last weekend’s 410-ci Sprint Car season-opener atop the storied ½-mile clay oval.

While original plans had called for World of Outlaws action at West Memphis and Pevely, the change of plans worked out quite well with Reutzel driving the Wren Motorsports/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry to a strong third-place finish.

“We practiced on Friday for the first time there and I’m really glad we did,” Reutzel said. “We got in our comfort zone, the car had a lot of speed.”

Two of the Most Challenging Schedules in the Motorsports Industry
Concord, NC- April 27, 2017– The DIRTcar Summer Nationals and the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals 2017 schedule promises a summer of hot action on the track.

Grant Breathes Easy with Victory in USAC Sprints’ First Pilgrimage to Plymouth

Plymouth, Indiana………Early on in Justin Grant’s sprint car racing career, a fellow competitor told him that he wouldn’t last more than eight laps without consciously remembering to breathe while he was racing.
Justin heeded that advice, and a handful of years later, the Ione, California native is finding the greatest success of his driving career. He could breathe easy after all was said and done Friday night after holding off a late-race charge from Chad Boespflug while mired in lapped traffic to collect his second series victory of the season in the first-ever visit by the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship to Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway.
The win came as a sigh of relief to Grant after a breathtaking moment in ProSource Qualifying that almost ended his night before it even began.
