Telford, PA — (October 30, 2015) — As it is often said, every good partnership runs its course.

With that being said, CJB Motorsports is announcing that Paul McMahan will not be returning to the seat of the teams’ #51 machine. The decision, made earlier this week, will go into effect after the Bad Boy Buggies World of Outlaws World Finals at the Dirt Track at Charlotte.

“To say that we & our boys, Chad Jr. & Braydon, are saddened by Paul’s decision to leave our CJB Motorsports family at the end of this season is an understatement,” said Chad & Jenn Clemens, the owners of the Bairs Tree Service, Nyce, Crete & Landis Block & Concrete, All-Star Performance #51.” Paul is a first class driver as well as a first class person off the track. At the end of the day, this decision was made with both his and our best interests in mind. We will miss him greatly and respect his decision and we pray that his future is all that he deserves and hopes for. With this business it is so hard not to become close to those you spend a lot of your time with, whether it be at the track or away from it, you become family. You share moments as individuals, with our own personal family’s milestones & we share happy times, sad times and tough times, from all of that our families grow together. With that being said, we are extremely grateful for all that Paul has contributed to help us and our CJB team accomplish all that we have in these last few years together. More than that, we are grateful that, at the end of all the business dealings, we still remain close friends/family. At the end of the day, that is the most important thing in life. We all helped each other grow and become better not, only as a race team, but as individuals. We want to thank Paul’s wife Jan, their son Brayden and their daughter Kylie for the sacrifice’s they made these last few years for Paul to be able to help us accomplish all that we did. It’s their selfless sacrifice of their time with Paul that allows us to do what we do and Love. We appreciate it more than we could express. Being away from family is hard and they live it 9-10 months through the year. Thank you to all of our sponsors and fans for the support of Paul and our CJB Motorsports team these last few years and in the future! We are looking forward to next week in Charlotte! Praying that God blesses us with the best race weekend of the season and with the best last race with Paul.”

McMahan, the driver from Nashville, Tenn., was equally appreciative of the partnership that yielded 13 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wins since the fall of 2012.

“There are times in this sport that it just better for all involved to get a fresh start,” said McMahan. “I want to thank Chad and Jenn Clemens for the opportunity to drive their No. 51 car for a little over three years. I also want to thank Barry Jackson for his hard work as the crew chief and everyone of our crew members that were a big part of our team.”

CJB Motorsports is looking forward to the upcoming 2016 campaign as Sammy Swindell will return to the seat of the #1 Big Game Treestands/Mainstream Holdings/ GoMuddy.com machine. A driver announcement regarding the #51 machine will be made at a later date.
