Earns First Career Williams Grove Win
Shane Stewart started on the pole for the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway, but didn’t lead the opening lap. Instead, he battled with PA Posse driver TJ Stutts of Liverpool, PA and used a slide job in turns one and two to take the lead on a lap 11 restart. From there, Stewart held off Stutts and then Daryn Pittman on a pair of restarts over the final 10 laps to earn his first career Williams Grove win and his first Outlaw victory of the 2017 season.

Gravel started on the pole for the 25-lap main event after winning the Craftsman Club Dash and led flag-to-flag despite restarts with three and four laps remaining in the main event. It was the second win of the week in Central Pennsylvania for the Watertown, CT native who also won at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday. It was also Gravel’s seventh victory of the season.
Atomic Speedway, Ohio Sprint Car Series, Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week each to enforce random drug testing
CHILLICOTHE, OH (May 20, 2017) – In an effort to increase safety standards amongst racers, Brad McCown, promoter of Atomic Speedway, Ohio Sprint Car Series and Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week, will now enforce random drug testing during mentioned events in 2017. Competitors chosen to be evaluated will be notified on the day of any given event. If the competitor is proven to be impaired, immediate action will be taken at the promoter’s discretion, or Series officials’ discretion.
“Maintaining safety is the bottom line,” Brad McCown explained. “We not only want to keep all of our competitors safe, but we also want to assure the safety of our track crew and track officials, as well as the safety of those sitting in the stands. Driving impaired will not be tolerated. With that said, I am confident this new rule will not deter any of the competitors associated with Atomic Speedway, OSCS and Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week, as I am sure all abide by such standards, anyhow.”
