Gravel has his sights set on Paducah and Pevely!

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series(4/14/2011 Brownsburg, IN)  Team DDR Motorsports and driver David Grravel have a great deal of confidence heading into this weekend’s showdown with the World of Outlaws at Paducah International Raceway and I-55 Raceway. The team will also have some new partners on board for the trip and the rest of the season.  The familiar IGA Hometown Wheels will once again be part of Team DDR with new partner The Basement Doctor coming on board for the 2011 season. Basement Doctor is headquarted in Columbus, Oh and can be found on the web at www.jdbasementsystems.com Gravel who has never competed at Paducah likens it to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN  a track he has been very competitive on in the past.

“We glad to have IGA back for this year and to welcome The Basement Doctor on board.” said Gravel.  “I think we can give em both a real good run this weekend with the Outlaws and show em what were made of.  Rob has experience at Paducah and has had some strong runs there, and that is great for my confidence.”

Gravel has run at I-55 before and had a very impressive performance.  He qualified for the dash and finished a very strong 9th place in his appearance there last season.  The team knows that there will be quite a few formidable competitors at I-55 as the track tends to attract quite a few of the Midwest teams. The young hot shoe from Connecticut isn’t bothered and is quite ready to perform.

“I really like the race track at Pevely.” continued Gravel. “It really suits my driving style.  It’s high banked and fast, you can really make some moves there and get to the front if your car is handeling good.  It’s important there to start up front because your in traffic a lot even when your leading but in the back you can get caught up in things because it happens so fast there. We’re ready to get up there and be a contender.”
