David Gravel of Watertown, CT joins Big Game Motorsports to run for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series championship in 2021.
He parted ways with Jason Johnson Racing at the end of 2020, after the pair collected seven wins together, and finished second in the team championship standings.
Gravel’s first year with JJR, in 2019, resulted in a career year for both he and the team.
They won 12 races, including the Knoxville Nationals, set Quick Time a staggering 21 times and finished third in points – the fourth year in-a-row Gravel ended the season third. Gravel also earned his 50th career win at the Can-Am World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

During his first year with CJB Motorsports in 2016, he improved upon a winless 2015 season, taking nine more checkered flags and earning 36 more top-five performances.
