Practice Kicks Off Sprint Week, Feb. 10 to 14, at Volusia Speedway Park
BARBERVILLE, Fla. – Feb. 9, 2016 – David Gravel kicked off sprint week at the 45th Annual DIRTcar Nationals on Tuesday night by turning the fastest lap in the open practice session.
The Connecticut native turned the fast lap of 13.814 seconds during the first hot laps session. It is Gravel’s first outing driving the No. 5 Big Game Treestands car for CJB Motorsports.
“It’s definitely something that takes time, but so far so good,” Gravel said of his new team. “We made good adjustments tonight and it seemed like we were all on the same page. If we keep that going I think we’ll have a good week.”
Kasey Kahne Racing driver Brad Sweet was second fastest with a lap of 13.831 which also came during the first practice session.
The optional practice session, which comes the night before the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions take on Volusia Speedway Park for the first of two nights, had 21 cars checked in. The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series continues sprint week on Friday with the first of three nights of racing.
Racing returns to Volusia Speedway Park Wednesday night when the All Stars and DIRTcar UMP Modifieds compete on the half-mile oval.
