Big Game Motorsports and Gravel Facing Two Very Different Tracks This Week

Big Game Motorsports will see two different extremes of track sizes this week.

First up is Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., a small bullring that hosts the Hy-Vee Perks 40 on Wednesday. Driver David Gravel has made four World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series starts at the quarter-mile oval, earning a trio of top 10s with his career-best third-place outing occurring during the most recent visit in 2021.

“Wednesday is probably the smallest track we’ve raced all year,” he said. “I feel we’ve raced a lot of small tracks this season. We’ll try to get through Jacksonville and then stretch our legs at Eldora. I’m curious to see how it will be with the one-inch wicker bill.”

The World of Outlaws head to Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, for the #LetsRaceTwo on Friday and Saturday. Gravel has produced four World of Outlaws wins at the track, which is one shy from climbing into the top 10 in the coveted history of the high-banked, half-mile track.

“Qualifying well is key,” Gravel said. “It gets slick there so you have to be good in the slick. Knowing when to be aggressive and when to move around is also important. You have to be open minded because sometimes the top is the fastest lane and sometimes you have to find another way to get around there.”

Gravel enters this week with a 34-point advantage in the World of Outlaws championship standings.


15 races, 3 wins, 12 top fives, 13 top 10s, 14 top 15s, 14 top 20s
