Gregory Ready to Rumble at Revolution Park Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (May 3, 2021) – Paxton Gregory is planning to head to Louisiana this weekend for an ASCS regional showdown.

The No. 3 Paxton Gregory Racing 360ci sprint car will compete on Saturday at Revolution Park Speedway in Monroe, where Gregory is aiming to earn his first top five of the year after he pocketed his first top 10 last weekend.

Gregory has competed a couple of times in the last few weeks with his most recent race occurring last Saturday at Riverside International Speedway. He finished where he started in both a heat race – third – and the A Main – ninth. It marked his best result of the season.

He also raced on April 17 at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss., where Gregory was relegated to a 13th-place finish because of a brake failure. Before the brakes went out 10 laps into the feature, Gregory noted the rain that had plagued the area all week created a totally different track characteristic than what it normally is like.

“Passing was at a premium as the track was rough and hard to maneuver around other cars,” he said. “We had a good draw in our heat race and won after starting on the outside of the front row. That put us in the feature redraw and we started the main event fifth, but it was short-lived since we battled the brake problem.”

Gregory now turns his attention to the track known as “The Rev” and said he likes his chances during the event that is co-sanctioned by the ASCS Mid-South Region and ASCS Lone Star Region.

Gregory made an appearance there late last season. He started 15 th and clawed his way to finish sixth at the 3/8-mile dirt oval. The 21-year-old said he has a lot of confidence going into a track where he has had success at in the past.

“I’m looking forward to going in there this weekend and having a good run,” he said. “I know we’re capable of having a good run there and starting some momentum. If I can keep the car in one piece, I have a car underneath me that is capable of a podium finish if not a win.”
