BIG E GIVES CJB A BOOST: Strong Night Has Team Aiming High for Homecoming



CARLISLE, PA. - May 19, 2019 -  Though the final stat line may not fully show it, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series first stop at the legendary Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, OH provided a much needed boost for CJB Motorsports and driver Shane Stewart.

Friday, May 10th was the opening night at the half-mile for the series in 2019. Stewart took his first Quick Time award of the season and then backed it up with his first heat race win since Volusia in February. The team made the dash, started 7th in the feature and came home 13th.  



"It felt really good to qualify well," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We are slowly getting these engines figured out and Barry has been working hard on that part of it. I was really tight in the feature and couldn't turn. That track has changed a lot in the last two years."

The following night of scheduled action at Eldora was hampered by Mother Nature. That program will now be made up on Wednesday, July 17th. That will give the series a unique, four day weekend for the annual Kings Royal event. 
The team now heads for Pennsylvania for races on their own turf. Wednesday, May 15th will see the series visit Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown before a two day show at Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg on Friday, May 17th and Saturday May 18th. The weekend culminates with a stop at Weedsport (NY) Speedway on Sunday, May 19th. 
"Really looking forward to getting to Pennsylvania, especially with Barry in my back pocket" Stewart said. "I have been getting more comfortable at Lincoln and Williams Grove so I'm excited."

STEWART SHINES IN THE OZARKS: CJB Nets Top-5 Run at Lake Ozark Speedway
Mother Nature cancels & postpones rest of the weekend; Outlaws stay in Mid-South


CARLISLE, PA. - April 29, 2019 -  Three World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events were scheduled for the weekend of April 26th thru the 28th. Due to persistent rains in the Midwest, the only event completed was the race at Lake Ozark Speedway near Lake of the Ozarks, MO on Friday, April 26th.

Shane Stewart and the CJB Motorsports machine timed in 16th of 32 cars, finished 3rd in heat three and rolled off 12th before powering his way to 4th in the feature.



"We had an awesome care at Lake Ozark Speedway," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 Killer Instinct Crossbows , Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "It was really good for us because it had been a tough weekend not having our leader (Crew Chief Barry Jackson) around. We're hoping he gets back out with us soon."

The following nights act at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 near Pevely, MO was canceled due to saturated grounds. The weekends' end cap, a stop at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway, was off to  a great start with record breaking laps in time trials and superb heat racing action. Unfortunately, heavy rains came and forced the postponement of the event to a date to be named later on.
 
The 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' stays in the mid-South area with a pair of stops at Riverside International Speedway near West Memphis, AR on Friday, May 3rd and Tri-State Speedway near Haubstadt, IN on Saturday, May 4th. CJB Motorsports has won four out of the last five events held at Tri-State Speedway with drivers Paul McMahan and David Gravel.
 
"I have raced at West Memphis several times and enjoy the small track excitement it brings," Stewart said. "Tri-State is a place that I typically struggle at but the 5 car has not! I am excited to get there with this team to see what we can do."

TEXAS TOP-10: Stewart & CJB Wrap Grab Top-10 in Lone Stop at Devils Bowl
Rain washes away big money night; Outlaws in action in Missouri next

CARLISLE, PA. - April 15, 2019 -  Shane Stewart and the CJB team got things started off on the right foot as they returned from the west coast by locking in a 10th place finish in the opening night of the Texas Outlaw Nationals. The race, held on Friday, April 12th, was the only one to be completed on the weekend as Mother Nature washed away the following nights action.

For Friday evening, Stewart timed in 14th quick, finished 4th in his heat race and started the feature in 11th. 



"I'm not sure what the issue is," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "Our night was more about the pill draw than anything. Everyone that went out late qualified in about the same spot."

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will take Easter weekend off before returning with a three night barn storm through the mid west. Stewart and the team will take the weekend off to spend time with family.

"A weekend off isn't what we really need," Stewart said. "It will be nice to spend some quality time with away from the track with family and enjoy what Easter is all about."

Stewart Scores Third Place Finish at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford
Top-10 at Perris caps off strong weekend as CJB wraps up California swing



CARLISLE, PA. - April 1, 2019 -  April Fools Day gets many people each year. It's a day for jokes and pranks and even fake news. One thing that is the truth is that fact the CJB Motorsports had a strong weekend to wrap up the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series spring break tour out west. 

Keller Auto Speedway near Hanford, Calif. played host to the series on Friday, March 29th. Shane Stewart powered the #5 machine to a 13th place time trialing effort before finished second in his heat and third in the dash. That meant the #5 car would start on the inside of row two for the feature.
"We had a pretty good weekend," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We almost got our first (Outlaw) win of the season at Hanford."




The following night, the 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' made its way to Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway for a tussle on the big half mile. Stewart timed in 16th, finished 5th in his heat race and crossed the line 8th in the feature. 

"The car had good speed both nights," Stewart said. "The wins are coming for this team!"

As mentioned previously, the tour heads east now for a pair of stops in Arizona on Friday, April 5th at USA Raceway near Tucson and on Saturday, April 6th at Arizona Speedway near Queen Creek.  Both CJB & Stewart are seeking their first Outlaw wins at these tracks.

"I've had some good runs at the next two tracks," Stewart said. "I'm looking forward to both of these tracks in Aizona."

DRENCHED IN CALIFORNIA: Stewart & CJB Sit Tight While Rain Rolls Through
Keller Auto Speedway and Perris Auto Speedway close out west coast swing



CARLISLE, PA. - March 25, 2019 -  Rain continues to pelt the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series as scheduled events at Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway were affected by rain. The event at Placerville will be postponed until September 11th; the Ocean Speedway event has been canceled.

The series now sets their sights on the last weekend of racing in California for the spring break tour. Keller Auto Speedway near Hanford will host the 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' on Friday, March 29th and Perris Auto Speedway will follow on Saturday, March 30th. 

"I am looking forward to getting back in the car, especially after all these rain outs," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "Hanford is a unique place but it's been reshaped sense the last time we were there. Hopefully it races good and we can get two grooves going. Perris is always a fun place to race.I have had some good finishes there. It's also unique in how it races and how you have to utilize the bottom of the track, especially late in the race."




STOCKTON STUNNER: Stewart & CJB Have Victory Snatched Away 

Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway beckon as Outlaw tour rolls on



CARLISLE, PA. - March 18, 2019 -  Winning at any level of motorsports is difficult. Winning at the pinnacle of a certain form auto racing is almost impossible. Point being; wins are hard to come by as many World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series drivers will tell you. CJB Motorsports and driver Shane Stewart nearly tasted victory for the first time together as the Outlaw tour made stops at Silver Dollar Speedway near Chico. Calif. on Friday, March 15th and the Stockton (Calif.) Dirt Track on Saturday, March 16th. 

At Chico, the CJB team got off to a rough start in time trials and had to race their way into the nights feature event. Eventually, car #5 came home 14th. 
"Chico was a blur," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "We learned a ton from that night that helped us at Stockton."

With St. Patrick's day right around the corner, Lady Luck seemed to be riding with the #5 a bit more as the tour made a stop at the Stockton Dirt Track the following night. Stewart timed in 7th, finished 2nd in his heat, made the DIRTvision Fast Pass Dash and started the nights feature event in 4th. Stewart was leading during the feature until a flat right rear slowed his torrid pace and regulated him to a 13th place finish. 

"My car continued to get better throughout the night," Stewart said. "One of our main goals is to continue to keep learning each other and I feel like we continue to do that."

More chances at victory will present themselves on Friday, March 22nd at Ocean Speedway near Watsonville, Calif. and Saturday, March 23rd at Placerville (Calif.) Speedway. CJB has one win at Placerville, which came in 2017. 

"I am looking forward to those tracks," Stewart said. "The #5 car already has a win at Placerville so I think our chances of having a strong finish should be good."






TULARE CHARGER: Stewart & CJB Nap Top-10 Finish at Exciting California Track 

West coast swing continues in earnest with stops at Chico and Stockton.



CARLISLE, PA. - March 12, 2019 -  California typically has a reputation for sun and warm weather. However, each spring, the rainy season blankets the third largest state in the United States. Rain and dirt tracks don't play well together as CJB Motorsports and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series lost one night of racing action at Thunderbowl Speedway near Tulare, Calif. 

The tour was, however,  able to fire their engines on Saturday, March 9th for the scheduled second night of racing action at the tight California bullring. CJB driver Shane Stewart timed in 14th of the 33 machines in attendance, finished third in his heat race and lined up 10th for the main event.




"We had a good car in Tulare," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Weikert's Livestock, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "The Outlaws and the track did a great job getting that race in. It was actually raining while we were running the A main so we got lucky to get the entire race in. Starting 10th and finishing 6th wasn't too bad, considering the conditions."

The Outlaws annual Spring Break tour out west continues with planned stops at Silver Dollar Speedway near Chico, Calif. on Friday, March 15th and the Stockton Dirt Track near Stockton, Calif. on Saturday, March 16th. Stewart & CJB are searching for their first wins at Stockton but Silver Dollar Speedway has been far more kind. CJB won the spring race at the racy bullring in 2013 with Paul McMahan while Stewart won one race a year at the track from 2015 thru 2017, culminating with the Gold Cup Race of Champions victory in 2017. 

"I love the 'cowboy up,' kind of tracks and that is what you get with Chico and Stockton," Stewart said. "I have enjoyed some success at both places and am looking forward to getting back there this weekend."

ROLLER COASTER:  CJB & Stewart Stout to Open 2019
Season kicks off with strong finishes and a win as team heads for Texas



CARLISLE, PA. - February 13, 2019 - Ask any racer competing for a championship and they will tell you that a strong start to a season is key for any title hopes. The good news for Shane Stewart and the CJB Motorsports team is that they can check this particular item off their 2019 list.
  
The Carlisle, Pennsylvania based team rolled south to Florida for seven nights worth of racing with the Ollies Bargin Outlets All Star Circuit of Champions and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Bubba Raceway Park was up first with three nights of action, beginning on January 31st. On their first night together, Stewart and the CJB team registered a 2nd place finish. The following two nights yielded finishes of 15th & 18th.  

"We were really good  on the first night," said Shane Stewart, pilot of the #5 GoMuddy.com, Big Game Tree Stands, Ecynbro Trucking, Nyce, Crete and Landis Block and Concrete, C&S Lawn & Landscape machine. "That was the only night that the track really got slick. The following two nights were a bit stickier and we struggled in qualifying."
 
On Wednesday, February 6th, the team made their way to Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville for two more nights of All Star action. On the opening night, Stewart tamed the speedy half-mile oval for his first win of the season and first in the CJB #5. The following night, the team grabbed a 6th place finish after starting the A feature in 18th.

"Getting that first win early really shows that the #5 car is ready to go and validates all of the hard work the guys put in over the winter," Stewart said. "Once again, the track slicked off on that night and we're really pretty good in those conditions. I think we'll see that a lot more throughout the season so that has us excited. The next night, we struggled in qualifying as the track stayed hooked up and wet."

With five nights of All Star action in the books, it was time to begin the 2019 World of Outlaws season. On the opening night for the 'Greatest Show on Dirt,' Stewart notched a runner up finish once again and followed that up with a 19th place finish the following night. Another scheduled night of racing with the Outlaws, scheduled for Sunday, February 10th, was washed away by rain.
"We were lucky to get through our heat race and that put us in the dash," Stewart said. "Barry (Jackson) and I talk about that a lot. Being in the dash is the key with the Outlaw races. We struggled again the following night. All in all, though, we felt like Florida was a successful trip."

The CJB crew will return to action on Friday, February 22nd at Cotton Bowl Speedway near Paige, Texas before moving over to Kilgore and the LoneStar Speedway the following night. CJB scored the win at Cottonbowl in 2018.

"Barry mentioned to me that David (Gravel) and I have similar driving styles which gives him some confidence in that he doesn't have to be reinvent the wheel when it comes to getting me comfortable in the car," Stewart said. "That being said, I look forward to going to Paige since the CJB car won there last year. I've had some success in the 360's & 410's at Kilgore. It can be hard to get ahold of but it will be fun."
