David Gravel is heading to Central Pennsylvania this weekend for the final two rounds of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ Low-E Insulation Spring Showdown.
The Big Game Motorsports competitor will race on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg and on Saturday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown.
“It’s going to be different,” Gravel said. “We don’t typically race in the Northeast this time of the season. The weather will be colder. The tracks will be wetter and faster. For Williams Grove that could be a benefit to us. As far as Lincoln, it’s a short track so that can create different issues. We’ll just wait and see. We’re on the new tires as well so we’re entering it with an open mind.”
Gravel has earned eight World of Outlaws wins at Williams Grove Speedway with his most recent trip to Victory Lane coming in October 2020.
“Williams Grove is a track I’ve been comfortable at,” he said. “I haven’t won there in a few years so I’m definitely motivated to get back to Victory Lane. We’ve been in dashes and in the ball game, just not where we want to be or need to be in the A Mains.”
Gravel was victorious during a World of Outlaws event at Lincoln Speedway in May 2017.
“That’s a place you have to get qualified well at to put yourself in position,” he said. “It’s off camber in some parts of the corners and banked in different places. It can be tricky so you need to unload with a fast car and try to run up front all night.”
Gravel enters the weekend leading the World of Outlaws championship standings by 20 points. He is also tied for the lead in the Low-E Insulation Spring Showdown standings.
