VINCENTOWN, N.J. – Justin Whittall will make his first start of the season in his home state of New Jersey this week, with a Tuesday night Posse Invasion of Bridgeport Speedway on deck.

Located less than an hour from his Vincentown headquarters, Whittall is certainly familiar with Bridgeport and frequents the track often. His most recent start there came two years ago, when the World of Outlaws visited the venue in 2019.

In addition to a midweek visit to Bridgeport, Whittall will also make routine stops to Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway during the coming weekend.

Whittall is working hard to secure valuable notes before the All Star Circuit of Champions make an appearance in Pennsylvania Posse country the following week.

“I’m excited to race close to home tomorrow night. We don’t have a lot of opportunities to race within an hour of our shop, so this gives some of our partners, as well as friends and family, a chance to come to the track and see us in action,” said Whittall, who finished 17th during his most recent visit to Port Royal on April 3. “I can’t thank everyone enough for their support in 2021. The plan is to get the week started on the right foot with a big performance at Bridgeport.”

Whittall will enter the Bridgeport visit with a big notebook and lots of confidence, as the team qualified for World of Outlaws main event action when the Outlaws last visited the speedway on May 21, 2019.

Whittall earned the final transfer spot in the evening’s Last Chance Showdown to battle for the $10,000 feature prize.
