Keep up with the latest movers in the chase for the 2023 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series championship.

LATEST RACE(S): U.S. 36 Raceway (April 7), 81 Speedway (April 8)

CURRENT POINTS LEADER: A pair of second-place efforts over the weekend helped vault Carson Macedo from third into the points lead for the first time in 2023. The Jason Johnson Racing driver is on a streak of three consecutive podiums and is still yet to miss the top 10 this season.

MOVERS:

David Gravel (-1): Gravel jumped all over the place over the two nights. An incident on Friday dropped him from the points lead to third. Then a bounce back third place run on Saturday elevated the Big Game Motorsports pilot back into second eight markers behind Macedo.

Brad Sweet (-1): Like Gravel, Sweet had an up and down weekend. It began with a third-place result at U.S. 36 putting him atop the standings. On Saturday trouble struck when he was involved in an early race pileup. The Kasey Kahne Racing crew made repairs and salvaged a 14th but still slipped to third in points.

Logan Schuchart (+1): Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart put together a productive weekend after some recent struggles. The Hanover, PA native posted results of fourth and eighth, enough to move him up to fourth.

Michael Kofoid (-1): Kofoid continued his early year stint with the Series and finishes of 10th and 11th dropped him to fifth.

James McFadden (+1): A solid pair of outings saw Roth Motorsports driver, James McFadden, pick up a 12th on Friday and a fifth on Saturday, his second top five in the last three races. McFadden moved into eighth in points.

Spencer Bayston (-1): Bad luck struck Spencer Bayston on Friday as contact with a spinning car ended his night early. The Lebanon, IN native recovered on Saturday in the CJB Motorsports #5 by finishing fourth, his second best result of the year, but still fell one spot in the standings over the course of the weekend.

Gio Scelzi (+1): After some early season struggles, Gio Scelzi continued to build momentum aboard the KCP Racing #18. The Fresno, CA driver earned his best two finishes of the season over the weekend, seventh and sixth, and now has top 10s in six of the last seven races and continues to climb the standings.

Brock Zearfoss (+1): It was undoubtedly the strongest weekend of the year so far for Brock Zearfoss. The “Jonestown Jet” made his first two Toyota Racing Dashes of the season and finished a season-best fifth on Friday.

Jacob Allen (+1): Allen’s weekend was highlighted by a ninth place finish on Saturday, his fourth top 10 of the campaign. The Shark Racing driver moved up a spot in the points as a result.

Kasey Kahne (-3): It was a tough weekend for Kasey Kahne. A nasty crash on Friday coupled with persistent mechanical issues Saturday lowered him three positions in the standings, and he’ll look to recover this coming weekend.
