BACK EAST: The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series wrapped up their final west coast swing of the season last Saturday and headed east. The Kyle Larson Racing team and Shane Stewart made the long trip east and will compete in the BeFour the Crowns Showdown at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on Friday, followed by the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Penn., on Saturday.
BEFOUR THE CROWNS SHOWDOWN HISTORY: In four starts during the Friday night portion of 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway, the KLR team and Stewart have earned three top-10 scores, including two podium finishes – one being a win in 2015. Last year, Stewart was running in the second position on lap 12 and closing in on the leader when debris on the track shredded his tire. He was able to come to the pit area to make repairs and restart at the rear of the field and eventually climb his way forward to a 12th-place finish.
COMMONWEALTH CLASH HISTORY: KLR and Stewart have had three starts in the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway over the past four seasons and have never finished outside of the top-five. In 2014, the Bixby, Okla., native won his heat race and finished fourth in the feature. In 2016, he again won his heat race and finished fifth in the main event. Last year, Stewart was quick-time, won his heat race and finished fourth in the feature.
