PLAINFIELD, Ind. (May 13, 2013) – The trailer was loaded and Bill Rose was ready to haul to Minnesota last Thursday.
Unfortunately, a last-minute emergency prohibited Rose from returning to World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series action after a broken left arm has sidelined him for much of this season. Rose was slated to compete at the FVP Outlaws at Elko on Friday at Elko Speedway in Elko, Minn., and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, at the Mediacom Shootout.
“I wanted to race this past weekend so bad, but there are things in life that are more important than racing,” Rose said. “I was going to be returning a week early so now this just puts us back on schedule.”
Rose will now return to the seat on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the Gettysburg Clash before a weekend doubleheader at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Morgan Cup.
Bill Rose Racing driver David Gravel did race over this past weekend, recording two more top 20s.
After earning a transfer out of the Last Chance Showdown, Gravel placed 20th in the inaugural event at Elko Speedway.
On Saturday, Gravel again was in good position to garner a Last Chance Showdown transfer to the feature when the power steering line blew. He was forced to use his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series provisional and started the feature 25th.
Gravel rallied and nearly picked up his 10th top-10 finish with Bill Rose Racing as he finished 11th. He is seventh in the championship standings.
