With the World of Outlaws California swing in the books, Destiny Motorsports announced Tuesday that David Gravel has been hired to take over driving duties of the No. 7 sprint car from Craig Dollansky on the World of Outlaws tour, starting with this weekend’s Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
“It just did not work out with Craig Dollansky and us, and we both felt it was best to part ways,” Destiny Motorsports owner Rick Rogers said. “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome a young talent like David Gravel to our team, as he takes over the driving duties for us.”
Watertown, Conn. driver David Gravel comes to Destiny Motorsports after a very strong 2014 season with the World of Outlaws, one that saw him win five World of Outlaws races, including the National Open.
“First and foremost, I am thankful for the opportunity that Roth Motorsports gave me for the last season,” Gravel said. “With that being said, I am very excited to team up with Rick and Barb Rogers, and drive the Destiny Motorsports machine.”
Though the start of the 2015 season has not been quite what David Gravel had in mind, the young gun is looking forward to jumping into the Destiny Motorsports machine and continuing his World of Outlaws season, where he currently sits ninth in the standings with two Top-Five and nine Top-10 finishes.
“This team wants to win a World of Outlaws race very bad, and we are going to work very hard and hopefully win a couple of them as the season goes on,” Gravel added.
Gravel and the Destiny Motorsports team will make their debut together when the World of Outlaws series takes to the Devil’s Bowl Speedway this Friday and Saturday night.
