TELFORD, PA. – July 2, 2014 – With 16 A-mains between now and July 29th, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series season is beginning to hit its stride.
Sweltering heat and plenty of windshield time (the series begins July on the plains of America and concludes it in Ontario, Canada) is what is in store for the stars and cars of the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt.’ A few of these elements were present as Paul McMahan and the CJB Motorsports team closed out the month of June with a triple-header weekend.
“Our results this past weekend really are representative of how strong our car was,” said Paul McMahan, driver for the CJB Motorsports entry. “We went forward pretty much each night and just had racing luck hold us back a bit.”
The 51 Bairs Tree Service/Nyce Crete & Landis Block & Concrete/All Star Performance sprinter began the three race stretch in Iowa at 34 Raceway in Burlington.
“We got up to second at one point at Burlington,” commented McMahan. “Towards the end, the restarts hurt us and we fell backwards a bit. With the double file restarts, you can sometimes end up in the wrong line to get going.”
Following Burlington, the team moved northeast to Wisconsin for races at Beaver Dam Raceway and Cedar Lake Speedway.
“We went forward at Beaver Dam,” mentioned the Nashville, Tenn. resident. “We made it as far as third when the same types of things that happened the previous night struck again. At Cedar Lake, we drew a late number for time trials and getting a good lap is half the battle at these races. We went out when it had slowed down and just couldn’t get caught up with the track all night long.”
To open the month of July, the tour heads southwest for an Independence Day weekend thriller at Dodge City Raceway Park in Kansas. Along the way, teams will stop at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota on Wednesday, July 2nd.
“Huset’s is a racy place and we’re hoping to put on a good show there as they always have excellent attendance,” said McMahan. “Dodge City is really dependent on the weather. It sits out in the sun and wind of the plains and it has been known to take rubber. It’s an excellent facility and we hope to have a few strong finishes from there as we gear up for the month of money.”
