CARLISLE, Pa. (March 28, 2022) – It was a wild final weekend in California for Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports, and although the team was denied a potential victory on Friday as the result of getting caught up in an incident while leading at Bakersfield Speedway, the Lebanon, Indiana, native rebounded big on Saturday and scored a top-ten, finishing eighth at Perris Auto Speedway after starting in the exact same position. Bayston kicked-off the SoCal Showdown program with a third-place score during his respective heat race.
A heartbreak, nonetheless, Bayston, driver of the CJB Motorsports, Signing Day Sports, JRC Transportation, Nyce Crete and Landis, Ecynbro Trucking, C&S Lawn and Landscape, Kistler Engines, The Dunn Group, Highlands’ Power Sports, High Performance Lubricants, FK Rod Ends, Allstar Performance, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, No. 5 sprint car, led the first eight circuits on Friday at Bakersfield before the aforementioned incident occurred, utilizing the pole position to blast ahead of the field.
Unfortunately, Bayston was not the only driver caught up in the lap nine incident, as David Gravel and Rico Abreu, who were running second and third, respectively, were also involved in the tangle. Bayston would eventually return to action, but had to settle for 16th in the running order.
“I didn’t see how it started, but I was already committed and it was just too late,” said Bayston regarding Friday’s hiccup while leading. “You always think you could’ve done something different, but I don’t know if we could have avoided that. It’s just a bummer. One of these front-row starting spots is gonna pay off. We’re doing our part, that win is coming soon.
“I can’t thank this team enough for their hard work during this California swing. We’ll begin our trip back east and work for big results starting with Vado tomorrow night.”
Spencer Bayston and CJB Motorsports will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a mid-week visit to Vado Speedway Park in Vado, New Mexico, on Tuesday, March 29, followed by an Oklahoma/Texas doubleheader at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, and Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, April 1-2. Bayston will enter the trio tenth in the World of Outlaws driver standings.
