Gravel Set for Debut at Magnolia Motor Speedway and The Rev This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions – WINDOM, Minn. (Feb. 15, 2021) – A pair of new tracks are on tap for David Gravel this weekend.

The Big Game Motorsports driver heads to Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss., on Friday and The Rev in Monroe, La., on Saturday. It will be the first career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at both tracks.

Gravel last raced in Mississippi in February 2011 when he won his first career World of Outlaws dash and placed fifth in the main event at Pike County Speedway in Magnolia – roughly six hours southeast of this Friday’s event.

A decade later he is off to a strong start during his first season with Big Game Motorsports. The team captured four straight fourth-place finishes during the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., earlier this month.

“Volusia is a unique place,” Gravel said. “We have the big track speed. We’re pretty confident on big tracks. Now we’re going into short tracks so it’ll be interesting to see where we stack up. We have a good engine program and me and Cody (Jacobs) have worked well together so far so it’s encouraging.”

World of Outlaws races in Georgia and Alabama were cancelled last weekend because of weather, meaning three of the first five Outlaws shows this year haven’t been contested.

“Everybody is in the same boat,” Gravel said. “We want more races to gel and work well together, but we’re third in points after two races. We’re not trying to play catch up. The more we race the better we’ll get, but it’s gone well so far and we’ll keep building off that.”
