Street Outlaws No Prep Kings star Justin Swanstrom got back on track on Saturday. He picked up his first-round win since Virginia in April.
He defeated Brandon F’kn James in the first round of the filming at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio. There was also a side bet on the line in the race.
“Going out first round last two races in a row and being able to get the win today in (the) first round!,” Swanstrom said in a Facebook post. “I’m so happy for my team. Car was shaking really bad and drove me to the wall but I legged it through there and (was) glad to get the win!
“They came up and wanted to bet 5,000$ on the side! I accepted it and got the cheese #swangang”
Swanstrom missed the race at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. During the Great 8, he was rear-ended by “Super Dave” Adkins.
The Florida native had experienced a small fire during the pass. Then, after being hit by Adkins, the front of Prenup had a large fire.
After Saturday’s postponement due to weather, Swanstrom and his team hailed it back to Florida to get Prenup back to Cameron Johnson Race Cars. Then the SwanGang and CJRC team put 300 man hours in four days to get the car back together.
On the Thursday before Epping, Swanstrom and his team loaded up Prenup and put the car in the trailer. They began a 24-hour trek to get to New England Dragway in New Hampshire.
Swanstrom was eliminated in the first round by “Daddy Dave” Comstock. He experienced an intake manifold backfire.
Before this weekend’s event, Swanstrom went screw blower. So far, he has not had any problems with this combination.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
