Ohio & Michigan tracks on radar for CJB Motorsports to close out May
TELFORD, PA. - May 27, 2015 - Paul McMahan and his CJB Motorsports team knew they needed a change as they pulled out of New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway on Tuesday, May 18th. With a high profile stop at the Dirt Track at Charlotte looming, the Pennsylvania based team set out to assemble a new car from the ground up in hopes of changing a string of inconsistent finishes.
"We had been pretty up and down here lately in terms of our results," said McMahan, the driver of the Bairs Tree Service, Nyce Crete & Landis Block & Concrete and All Star Performance sponsored machine. "When that happens, you start to work through what all could be the problem. After New Egypt, we felt like trying a different chassis would be a way to eliminate that from the equation. We had a few days before we had to head down to Charlotte so we took the time to put together a new #51."
A slight change occurred to this week's lineup, but PennLive's Sprint Car Unlimited podcast went off without a hitch.
James McFadden replaced Craig Dollansky, who had something come up, on the show. The Australian discussed running in the United States, his success with Joe Gaerte Racing and unexpected insight on running dished wings and dirty air.
Also joining the show was central Pennsylvania's standout Aaron Ott. The East Berlin driver explained his reason for running more 410 Sprint Car races and why his team has been more consistent in 2015.

The competition began last Tuesday at New Egypt Speedway in New Egypt, N.J., during the Jersey Outlaw Classic with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series. Smith qualified second quickest, placed fourth in a heat race and finished fifth in the dash to line up on the inside of the third row for the main event.
"I fell back to sixth at one point, but passed Joey Saldana to get back in the top five," he said. "I was racing with Logan (Schuchart) with about eight laps remaining. I had a run off the top and he broke a mag or lost an ignition. I ran into the back of him and it broke our front end. It was a shame because we would have had a top five."
