TELFORD, PA. – June 25, 2014 – The upper Midwest seems to be a source of consistency for Paul McMahan and the CJB Motorsports team.
And in many cases, consistency wins championships.
“We’ve been very fortunate to be at the front or near the front all year long,” said Paul McMahan, driver for the CJB Motorsports entry. “Barry, Shane and Scott are some of the best crew guys you’ll find anywhere and they work very diligently to make sure our car doesn’t have any issues. We take a lot of pride in that as we travel up and down the road. We’ve really been on our game here in the Midwest.”
Racing action in the Plains states continued for the #51 Bairs Tree Service/Nyce Crete & Landis Block & Concrete/All Star Performance sprinter as the team took on one of the series most exciting tracks, River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
“We were under Kerry (Madsen) for the lead at one point at River Cities,” commented McMahan. “We couldn’t quite make the pass and the car got tight so we drifted back a bit. We ended up 6th, which wasn’t bad, just disappointing after we contended for the win.”
The team hauler added 140 miles to the odometer as they traveled from Grand Forks and I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minn. the site of Saturday nights event.
“We were quickest in hot laps at I-94,” mentioned the California native, who is in his second full season with CJB Motorsports. “We timed in well and were really in hurry mode all night to beat some weather that was popping up. I felt like we stayed a step ahead of the track and came out of there with a solid fifth place finish.”
The racing schedule begins to heat up as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads for a triple-header weekend in Iowa and Wisconsin.
“We have some pretty cool tracks coming up,” said McMahan. “Burlington (34 Raceway) is a great track in Iowa. We finished second there last year. It’s pretty neat because the there is more banking in turns one and two than there is in three and four. Beaver Dam is one of my all time favorite tracks and we’ll be looking to finish better than we did there last year (5th.) Cedar Lake always amazes me because of the sheer number of fans that show up for a Sunday show. They truly make it worth going to and I hope we can celebrate a win there.”
