David Gravel, the 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, has been named the driver of the Phoenix Racing No. 59 sprint car owned by Tom and Sherry Leidig.

The No. 59 entry was driven in 2013 by veteran racer Jac Haudenschild, who has opted to join Destiny Motorsports for the 2014 season. That left the seat of the No. 59 open, a seat that Gravel was more than happy to fill.

Gravel recently completed his rookie season with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, earning victories at I-94 Speedway in Minnesota and on night one of the Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway. He missed several races after the Knoxville Nationals due to illness, but still managed to earn seven top fives and 26 top 10s with the Outlaws.

The team plans to enter between 60 and 70 races in 2014 while leaving open the possibility of joining the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series on a full-time basis should a sponsor join the team.
