LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — David Gravel will make his debut in the Blazin Racing No. 82 Buffalo Wild Wings sprint car this weekend at the Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway.

“Little Rock (I-30 Speedway) is a small track and you definitely have to be up on the wheel,” said Gravel. “The track changes a lot and you have to really stay on top of it. I made the feature the first time I went down there a few years ago, so I know what it takes, I just have to have things go my way a little bit.”

Gravel made his first trip to the Short Track Nationals in 2010. He finished 12th on the final night of the event, with a field of over 80 cars in attendance.

“It’s all about passing cars at the Short Track Nationals,” Gravel said. “There will be a lot of cars and a lot of good cars. Hot laps will be important each night, especially being in the (No.) 82 car for the first time. I was able to get up to speed pretty quick in a new car at the Trophy Cup last weekend, so hopefully that will be the case again this week.”

Gravel, who is the leading contender for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, has won twice this year with the series.
