FAISON EYES HIS FIRST WIN ON A HEARTFELT DAY


Felton, DE – CJ Faison is no stranger to winning races, as he has won all over the nation leading to a short stint in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series. But one thing has eluded him, his first career win in a winged sprint car.

Faison, 28 years old, has had multiple top 5s in a 305 sprint car, a Rookie of the Year title, and even a win as a car owner. However, he has not been able to secure the checkered flag and add another division to his resume. 

The YouTube sensation was on his way to a potential victory on March 25th, 2022 at Bridgeport Motorsports Park by setting a blistering lap time of 15.287 seconds around the high banked four tenths mile during warm-ups. But as fate would have it, Faison’s driveshaft broke coming to the checkered and sidelined him for the rest of the event.

Fast forward to this weekend, Faison will have a chance to secure that first victory in an event that is close to his heart. The inaugural Ron Faison Memorial 305 Spring Nationals, presented by PDS Professional Design Services, is a two day show headlined by the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series in memory of the father of CJ and his sister Bridgeport Motorsports Park co-owner Brittany Rose, who passed away last year. 

An emotional CJ Faison stated, “This weekend comes with a ton of pressure and emotion to say the least. My dad was my best friend, not a day goes by that I don’t think about all of the traveling and racing we did together. He loved racing so much and to see him have his own race weekend is an incredible feeling. I want to thank my sister Brittany and brother in law Doug for putting this Memorial race on. This one’s for you dad, let’s enjoy it.”

Co-owner Brittany Rose took to Facebook to state her own emotions by saying, “Sharing this post is hard. I never imagined having a memorial race for someone I loved, let alone my dad. In advance, I want to thank all of you for supporting this event.”

This event will be near and dear to everyone at the Kingdom of Speed, as Ron was vital in the revival of the concession stands at the newly renovated facility and a smiling face that everyone knew when they approached him. 

Faison will have two chances to take home a victory over series competitor Kevin Nagy, who won six races last season at the Kingdom of Speed, and the rest of the field as the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will strap in for two days of racing.

Also on the card for this weekend will be the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprints on Saturday along with the Precision Hydraulic and Oil 602 Sportsman and Street Stocks. Joining them Sunday is the always exciting Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz Modifieds, who will be competing for $5000 to win, and the four cylinder enduros.

Pits will open at 1 pm all weekend with grandstand access starting at  2:30 pm. Racing gets underway following warm-ups at 3:30 pm.

Tickets are available for purchase at the window or online at: https://bridgeportspeedway.thundertix.com/ 

YouTuber CJ Faison, will also be parking behind the grandstands and doing a special meet and greet on Sunday at 3 pm for all of the fans in attendance. 

This event would be a storybook beginning to the season for Faison, as he looks to take home his first career 305 win on this special weekend.

  • I have every bit of confidence in CJ. I’ve followed his career when he drove for the Xfinity series as well as the Camping World NASCAR Truck series. I also follow him on YouTube and a member of his personal text messaging service. He leaves no stone unturned and he let’s no grass grow under his feet, which is an old saying of racecar veteran’s everywhere. GO GET ‘EM CJ! Bring that Velveeta #2 across that 🏁🏁🏁flag. ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️Sending every bit of luck from south Mississippi ❤️. Love’s ya Bud! Chris and team, thank you for watching over CJ!
