Saldana, Pittman and Gravel Have Unique Perspectives on Week Ahead in Midwest for World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series
Three races in four nights will test ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana

JACKSONVILLE, Ill. - May 6, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is looking ahead this week to three races in four days at very unique venues across Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

Three drivers have distinct experiences at the upcoming tracks. The series will be making its debut on Wednesday at Jacksonville (Ill.) Speedway, a quarter-mile banked dirt oval where current series points leader Joey Saldana did some racing in the '90s; then on Friday for the third time in series history the Outlaws invade 1/3-mile Wilmot (Wis.) Raceway, where defending series champion Daryn Pittman has finished first and third and has led 55 of 75 laps there; and finally on Saturday for the 32nd time "The Greatest Show on Dirt" returns to quarter-mile Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., where last year David Gravel was the runner-up to the car he's currently racing.

"Jacksonville is right outside of Springfield, where the Outlaws ran the mile years ago," said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind., who last raced at Jacksonville in 1998. "I think the track was always in the background and never really got the exposure it deserved, so it's pretty cool they're finally getting an Outlaw race."

Saldana owns a 1-point advantage over Paul McMahan in the championship standings through 21 races, a long way from the World Finals in November. Still, being on top is no doubt a confidence builder for the Motter Motorsports team that came together just before the start of the 2013 season.

"I'm not worried about points right now," Saldana said. "For us, we need to win races. We need to go into Jacksonville and qualify well, go in there and race well. It's definitely going to be a tight racetrack and the racing is going to be tight."

At a venue like Jacksonville where the series is racing for the first time, or even Wilmot where the series is competing for only the third time, drivers who can adapt quickly will obviously find themselves up front. That's what makes World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series racers who compete February to November throughout North America stand out.

"I think it's just the amount that we race, how much variety of different tracks we see across the country gives us an advantage to pick up on something faster," said Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla., who led the championship wire-to-wire last year for his first series title in his Kasey Kahne Racing car. "We don't have a choice, we have to pick it up quick because we're limited on how much practice we get, how many times we're on the track. You better pick it up fast or somebody else is going to beat you."

Pittman, who also has a few laps at Jacksonville under his belt, is confident in his abilities at tracks where the series rarely competes.

"I've always felt like new tracks, or tracks where nobody has a lot of experience, I thought I excelled at pretty well," said Pittman, who held off Donny Schatz and Jason Meyers to win the Outlaws' last race at Wilmot in 2008. "I always love going to new places, I have a pretty good history of going to a track for the first time and picking it up fairly quickly and being in contention for the win. ... I think on really flat, tricky places like Wilmot I have always had a pretty decent feel for what I need the car to do on those types of tracks."

Many of the drivers have years of experience at Saturday's venue, Tri-State Speedway. So perhaps it was a bit surprising one of the youngest racers in the sport, 21-year-old David Gravel, nearly pulled off a win last season at Tom Helfrich's meticulous quarter-mile oval in southeastern Indiana. Gravel was filling in for Bill Rose in 2013 at Tri-State when he was runner-up to Tim Kaeding and the Roth Motorsports #83. Last week, Gravel hopped in that Roth Motorsports #83 car and on Saturday night at Eldora Speedway he picked up his second win of the season and fourth of his career.

"Last year at Haubstadt we ran real well, and obviously we were fast this past weekend," said Gravel, of Watertown, Conn. "I'm definitely looking forward to Tri-State. It's a really fun track. It should be a good weekend."

All four of Gravel's World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victories have come in different cars. He's quick to adjust and confident with his new team after only one weekend of competition.

"Ever since the first flight of hot laps in that car I was pretty comfortable," Gravel said. "There wasn't too much of a learning curve. The crew guys really work well together and care about my opinion and what I'm comfortable with. The past year I've driven quite a few different cars, and I seemed to be fast in almost every one I drove. Just driving different cars, driving different tracks is definitely a positive. When you're strapped in, you can't really see what the car looks like on the outside so you just drive it the same."

No doubt the action will be intense on three consecutive short tracks in four days before the series sets sail next week for its first trip of the year to Pennsylvania. For Saldana, Pittman and Gravel, the anticipation is certainly building for tracks where history might just be on their side.

Gravel Earns Second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Win of 2014
Drives to victory in only second night behind wheel of Roth Motorsports car

ROSSBURG, Ohio - May 3, 2014 - It's been a wild week for young David Gravel, but when the checkered flag fell on Saturday night's World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event at famed Eldora Speedway he was headed to victory lane.

In a thriller on the high-banked historic half-mile oval, Gravel had to pass defending series champion Daryn Pittman as the two exchanged slide jobs midway through the A-main. Gravel eventually found his way to the front of the pack to win in only his second night behind the wheel of the Roth Motorsports #83 machine. It was Gravel's second victory this season and the fourth of his career.

Pittman held on to finish second while Randy Hannagan was third with Paul McMahan in fourth and Donny Schatz in fifth with the KSE Hard Charger award after starting the feature in the 19th position.

Gravel, 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, started on the pole of the 30-lap feature event with Pittman on the outside. Exiting turn four on the start of the race Gravel jumped to the lead, but Pittman, working the high side of the track in the Great Clips #9 of Kasey Kahne Racing gained momentum and swiped the lead exiting turn two.

Entering lapped traffic, Gravel and Joey Saldana began to close in on Pittman. The top three ran just feet from each other for several laps before the lone caution of the event on lap 11 after Kerry Madsen's right rear tire went flat. Pittman chose the outside line on the start, putting Gravel to his inside and Saldana on his tail with the 11N of Hannagan starting behind Gravel. By lap 16 the leaders again entered traffic and Gravel was prepared.

On lap 17 Gravel slung the Roth Motorsports car to the bottom of turn three and pulled off a slide job on Pittman to lead lap 18. Pittman fired back entering turn one nearly duplicating the move to lead down the backstretch. The final pass was made going into turn three as Gravel again slid Pittman to take the lead and the win.

"In the beginning there I fell back to third but I got the wing back and the car was just awesome when I got the wing back, this is great!" said Gravel of Watertown, Conn. "I've raced Daryn a lot when he was 27 car and he's a really clean racer and I think we put on a hell of a show 'cause I know I'm tired after that, it was a handful."

Pittman tried to fire back, first on lap 22 in turn three, but slid up the track, unable to duplicate the result. Two laps later Pittman fired off a last ditch effort and tried to use a lap car as a pick, but again Gravel countered the move leaving Pittman to fight to hold on to second place from an attacking Hannagan.

Hannagan, behind the wheel of the NAPA #11N, began working the bottom of the track late in the race while the majority of the leaders were running around the top. Hanngan took several looks to the bottom of Pittman, but 2013 champion kept his line to hold on for a second place finish.

"The track was great, man we had a great car, hats off to David I just got beat by a better driver tonight, there's no question about that," said Pittman, an Owasso, Ok., native. "I just got too cautious in lap traffic and got in dirty air. He really pissed me off when he got by me and made me start driving the car the way I should have been driving it the whole way. Hats off to them, he deserves that ride, he's a good young kid. The best driver won tonight, that's for sure."

Hannagan charged from the seventh position to take the final position on the podium.

"Sitting third on the restart, I thought would be able to get a good restart there," said Hannagan of Pittsboro, Ind. "I started over driving it there at the end and it allowed the top to get going again. We've worked really hard over the years on getting our car right right through right through the middle because everybody's going to be on the top. If you can get your car through the middle, then you've got something they don't."

With an even 10 quick time awards Saldana holds the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship lead by a single point over McMahan. Pittman is in third trailing by 16 markers while Donny Schatz is 22 points out in the fourth position.

Shane Stewart Dominates World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars at Eldora Speedway
Former series rookie of the year gives Kyle Larson his first victory as car owner

ROSSBURG, Ohio - May 2, 2014 - Well, that didn't take long. In its much-anticipated World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series debut on Friday night at Eldora Speedway, Shane Stewart dominated in the Larson-Marks ride to give Kyle Larson his first win as a car owner.

The team was strong all night from a top-10 qualifying effort to a heat race victory and ultimately leading all 30 laps of the A-main.

Current World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship leader Joey Saldana finished second with Paul McMahan, quick-timer Kerry Madsen and Dale Blaney rounding out the top five.

Kraig Kinser led the field to green, but Stewart used his outside front-row position in his GoPro-sponsored car to line himself up for a charge at the lead on the high side in turns 1 and 2. Stewart then raced to the bottom of the historic high-banked, half-mile oval and swept past Kinser and into the lead.

With Stewart and Kinser out front, a couple of Kings Royal winners, Saldana and Blaney, battled each other for third. Saldana wheeled the Motter Equipment #71M around the top while Blaney worked the bottom. The two entered traffic just after lap five and while navigating lapped traffic Blaney earned the position on lap eight, but he wasn't done there. The following lap Blaney passed Kinser for second place.

As Stewart worked in and out of traffic, Blaney would pull close yet fall back. Blaney was closing the gap on lap 17 when a caution for new full-time Outlaw David Gravel after he broke a bolt in the throttle.

On the restart Stewart, who was series' top rookie in 2005, chose the outside line with Blaney to his inside. Stewart and Saldana, who started third, road the rim of the track with Stewart shooting back to the lead. The rest of the race ran caution free and Stewart cruised to the checkered flag.

"This is such a surreal … sorry," started an emotional Stewart of Bixby, Okla., in victory lane. "It's been quite a rollercoaster for me the last couple of years, and it was a tough decision to come here, I had a couple of good offers on the table and thank god I picked this one, huh? I know we're going to have our bumps and bruises, but to come here and win with the field of cars that are here … my car was on a rail."

In turn three Saldana used a strong run around the top to take second position by driving around Blaney.

"I thought I did [have something for him], until we got into traffic and then he was 'see you later,'" said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind. "That's a great car that finished ahead of us, a great team, that's a great driver and I wouldn't expect anything else out of Shane Stewart but a win on that. I loved watching my dad race here and all the old time guys so when I come here it's kind of like going back in time for me and I can kind of revisit the days when those guys were running around out here."

On lap 22 McMahan used a slide job to take the third position behind the wheel of the CJB Motorsports #51.

"We had a good race car," said McMahan, of Nashville, Tenn. "It's great for Shane [Stewart], I've been in his shoes where people doubted you and didn't believe in you. Kyle believes in Shane and Shane is a great racecar driver. We gave it all we had, I was going to try to slide it in on Joe I thought he might go to the top and he was trying to lap cars and went to the middle and it got real tight there off of four and I spun the tires real bad on exit and he got away from me. It's a solid third place finish tonight.

Saldana remains the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship leader by 19 points over Paul McMahan. Donny Schatz sits in third place trailing by 34 points and 2013 champion, Daryn Pittman is in fourth, one point behind Schatz.

World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars Return to Historic Eldora
Ohio half-mile steeped in tradition a huge draw for generations of racers

ROSSBURG, Ohio - April 30, 2014 - A return to Eldora Speedway has special meaning for many of the competitors on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series tour. This Friday and Saturday, the series races back to Eldora for the 37th consecutive season.

Some of today's racers were part of that first night. Bobby Allen claimed the World of Outlaws event at Eldora on April 16, 1978. He'll have two cars in the field this weekend with son, Jacob Allen, and grandson, Logan Schuchart, as drivers. Steve Kinser was a two-time winner that inaugural season. He's back for one more run at a 21st championship - and a few more Eldora wins - on his Salute to the King tour.

Sammy Swindell, the series' most recent winner last Saturday in Pevely, Mo., earned his first Outlaw victory at Eldora in 1979 and his most recent win at the historic high-banked half-mile oval in the 2012 Kings Royal.

The drivers who are forging their own milestones right now, racers like Donny Schatz, Daryn Pittman, Joey Saldana, Paul McMahan, Brad Sweet and Kerry Madsen, also appreciate Eldora for all its history and intrigue. Each has stories of near-misses, heartbreak and ultimately success. With two victories last year at Eldora, Australia-native Madsen finally conquered Eldora after a couple of close calls in previous years.

"Eldora is pretty much what got me hooked on racing in the USA," Madsen said. "When you come from the small tracks in Australia and see Eldora for the first time, it's definitely an eye-opener. I've always enjoyed racing there. It has a lot of atmosphere about it. The cushion's on the wall, it lends itself to a pretty exciting style of racing. It's always been one of my favorite stops."

Eldora is a track wound tightly in Outlaw lore. This weekend, two more chapters will be written.

PROVISIONAL NOTE: Last Friday at Salina Highbanks Speedway, Sammy Swindell's team indicated it was considering the use of a provisional starting position in the A-main. Ultimately, Swindell did not use the provisional but was scored in the provisional position. Series officials have returned that provisional to Swindell at a cost of the last-place points he was awarded in the A-main. Therefore, Swindell will be officially scored as the first non-transfer car, which is 75 points, a deduction of 27 championship points.

Sammy Swindell Captures Exciting Spring Classic Victory
Three-time series champ earns first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car win of 2014 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55

PEVELY, Mo. - April 26, 2014 - Sammy Swindell had a Jekyll and Hyde weekend. A rough Friday night left him using a provisional starting position for the feature in Salina, Okla. Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway the driver of the Big Game Treestands #1 reversed course and started on the outside pole of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series feature event, and after several tough battles found victory lane to earn his first win of the season.

Following Swindell across the line was Joey Saldana, who was battling for both a weekend and event sweep after winning Friday at the Salina Highbanks Speedway and starting off the Spring Classic by setting quick time and winning his heat race before contending for the win. Donny Schatz crossed the line in third place with David Gravel and Daryn Pittman rounding out the top five.

Brad Sweet and Swindell led the field to the green flag with Sweet jumping to the early lead. Sweet pulled away while the battle raged behind him. Sweet led early until lap 5 when he tapped the wall with the right rear and contacted the wall and rolled to a stop.

Swindell inherited the lead on the ensuing restart. Swindell and Schatz pushed into one and brought Saldana into the battle for the lead. Saldana took the lead behind the wheel of his Motter Equipment/HE&M Saw #71 in turns three and four to lead lap seven. While Saldana's lead increased, Swindell and Schatz battled for the second position with Swindell riding the high side of the track as the cushion pushed closer and closer to the wall, and Schatz working the bottom of the track. The leaders had to hold their composure on lap 12 when a car dropped oil entering one, causing the leaders to check up, while several of the top cars were able to hold on, Madsen slide into the wall and endo-ing onto his top wing.

Sprint car veterans Danny Lasoski and Steve Kinser gained the crowd's attention as the pair cut through traffic and earned a pair of positions each to put Lasoski second and Kinser sixth. Saldana and Saldana led the field to green on a lap 18 restart. Swindell fell to third in an exciting start that saw Lasoski lead down the back stretch while Kraig Kinser roared from the fourth position to the lead.

The pass for the win was made on the lap 21 restart with Swindell starting to the outside of Kinser. Swindell got a great start on the outside and flung his machine into turn one. Swindell would have to hold on for another restart on lap 27. Swindell brought the field to green at a slow pace and his car exploded off of the bottom and to a strong lead. On lap 29 Saldana had reeled in the Germantown, Tenn., native for a final attempt to lead, and threw a slide job at Swindell in turn three, but Swindell held strong to keep the position. Schatz attacked Saldana in the next corner, but Saldana was able to fend off the attack.

Swindell led the field across the finish line by less than half a second (0.471 seconds).

"We've been close, but sometimes it's just positioning," admitted Germantown, Tenn., native Swindell. "If you didn't start right or if you didn't do everything exactly right you might just get cars going everywhere. I was In the right place at the right time I guess. I finally found a place that I liked and the car liked if I hit it, but if you missed it you kind of paid a big price. Hopefully we can keep it rolling."

Saldana capped off a win on Friday with a second place on Saturday.

"I actually really enjoyed it, I feel like the fans, that was pretty cool race" said Brownsburg, Ind., resident Saldana. "You've got to hit your marks every single lap and I missed a couple and that cost me. Great effort this whole weekend with a first and a second with these guys, if you can be on the front straightaway that's a great effort. Hopefully we'll go to Eldora and keep running the way we're running."

Schatz took third behind the wheel of the the STP/Armor All #15 entry of Tony Stewart Racing.

"Third feels kind of like a win for the way we were," admitted five-time series' champion from Fargo, N.D., Schatz. "We tried a little something there and we weren't exactly where we wanted to be. We felt good early tonight, but we just needed to make some other changes. That's how you learn and hopefully next time we'll come back and be a little better."

Saldana stretched his championship lead with a second place lead to 14 points over Daryn Pittman. McMahan holds third place trailing by 18 points and Schatz sitting 19 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is back in action on Friday and Saturday night May 2-3 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Saldana Powers to Second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Win of ’14
‘Brownsburg Bullet’ uses victory to move into championship points lead

SALINA, Okla - April 25, 2014 - Joey Saldana captured his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season on Friday night at Salina Highbanks Speedway as he held off Kerry Madsen and Kraig Kinser for a win that catapulted him into the series' championship lead.

Madsen wowed the huge crowd, throwing his American Racing Custom Wheels #29 car around the top of the high-banked, 3/8-mile oval, picking up several spots early in race as he tried to run down Saldana, who earned his ninth quick time in 18 races this season. Kraig Kinser's third-place finish was his best of the season while Paul McMahan and Cody Darrah rounded out the top five.

Donny Schatz and Saldana paced the field to green, with Saldana's Motter Eqauipment HE&M Saw #71m car shooting to the lead around the top of turns one and two. Madsen darted from sixth into a battle for third on the first lap. He gained the position a lap later then charged past Schatz and set his sights on Saldana. By lap five Madsen had caught Saldana, who had stretched his advantage over the rest of the field.

Saldana was able to fend off Madsen several times, including a restart on lap 13. Saldana blasted to lead with Madsen and Kinser in tow after Schatz was forced to the work area to change a flat right rear tire.

Saldana bobbled in traffic on lap 20, allowing Madsen to make a final charge for the lead, but he had enough steam to remain in front of a race shortened to 24 laps because of track conditions, collecting the $10,000 payday.

"I almost screwed up on those lap cars," said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind. "I almost gave it away there. It's so hard to keep your patience when you're following those guys around. Rubber racing's like that, you've just got to conserve and be smart and I almost wasn't too smart there. I was conserving and I saw Madsen in second there. Kerry's going to move around the race track and find something. I figured he was running down the top in three and four when we got bottled up behind lap cars so I tried it and obviously that wasn't the right choice. I almost gave it away there, but it's definitely hard to keep your patience when the track is like that, but we did and got the victory."

Madsen's run was his third podium finish in the past four races, which has moved him into the top five in the championship standings.

"[Crew chief] Tyler [Swank] had the car really good, we could be really aggressive early in the run," said Madsen, of St. Marys, N.S.W. "I made some moves and got a real good run off of four a lot of the time and passed some cars in one and two. In traffic in the rubber I got my nose under [Saldana], but it was left-locking and I had to lift or it was going to be bad. Hopefully the rest of the year is this much fun."

Kinser brought home a podium finish in the Mesilla Valley Transportation #11k for Steve Kinser Racing.

"We got qualified good, which has been our Achilles Heel starting out," said Kinser, of Bloomington, Ind. "We transferred through our heat race and it just worked out for us in the feature. Coming away with a third, especially with the competition we've got, it feels good, especially with the struggles we've had last month."

Daryn Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla., and the defending World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion is now tied with Paul McMahan in the championship, trailing Saldana by three points. Schatz is in fourth, a mere 16 markers out of the lead as the series heads Saturday into Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo.

Pittman Captures Texas Outlaw Nationals Victory at Devil’s Bowl
Huge crowd sees defending World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car champ collect $20,000

MESQUITE, Texas - April 19, 2014 - On a night when so many legends of sprint car racing reunited at a packed Devil's Bowl Speedway, Daryn Pittman held off Joey Saldana to capture the $20,000 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Ted Johnson Memorial on Saturday night during the Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels.

Saldana pulled even with Pittman in the waning laps before Pittman edged back ahead to close out his third victory of the season. Saldana held off Kerry Madsen to finish second with Madsen, Paul McMahan and Donny Schatz rounding out the top five.

More than 30 of the drivers who competed in the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series inaugural event in 1978 at Devil's Bowl kicked off the day with a massive autograph session before racing took center stage.

McMahan and Saldana eventually led the 30-lap A-main to green at high-banked, half-mile Devil's Bowl Speedway. Saldana's Motter Equipment #71m jumped to the lead off of the high-side of the track. Saldana held the lead on a lap two restart with Daryn Pittman in the Great Clips #9 Kasey Kahne Racing machine running second. McMahan made a run for second on the restart, but Pittman fended him off.

Saldana began running the bottom in one and two, and on lap 10 Pittman used a strong run on the top to pull even with Saldana down the backstretch. Pittman had the preferred line entering turns three and four and proceeded to cement the pass for the win.

The battle for second quickly picked up as Madsen began moving in on Saldana. Madsen duplicated the pass dropping Saldana to third. Madsen then started moving in on Pittman. Madsen had reeled him in on lap 15, but a caution flew as Danny Lasoski rolled to a stop on the back stretch.

Pitman chose the outside with Madsen starting to his inside. Pittman leapt to the lead with Madsen following. On lap 20 Saldana looked to the inside of turn one, but lost ground. Coming out of four the next lap Saldana got the run and completed the pass. Saldana running through the middle of three and four had found a lot of ground as Pittman continued to lead. On lap 25, Saldana made his move, and ran even with Pittman in front of packed grandstands.

Pittman had the preferred line and held off the charge. The following lap Pittman moved down in three and four en route to victory.

As a kid, Pittman and his family traveled from Owasso, Okla., to Devil's Bowl Speedway to watch the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series. On Saturday night, seeing so many of those drivers watch him drive to victory was a special moment.

"To get a win here at Devil's Bowl, a place that has obviously been special to me and my whole family … I don't even know what to say," Pittman said. "With all the people that were here, and Shane Carson and the amount of work he did to bring all those drivers back, and to honor Ted and just what this sport has gone through over the last 30 years, I'm just lucky to be a part of it for the short time I've been here."

Saldana's second place finish earned him his second top five finish of the weekend.

"The big thing for me is that the bottom is usually good off of the bottom of two and I was just sticking to it," said the Brownsburg, Ind., resident. "Normally I get stuck driving the top too much and I'm not on the bottom. Tonight I was on the bottom too much. To be in the top five with these guys two nights in a row at this track is a great effort by our whole team and we'll take it."

Madsen continues to showcase why he's a championship contender, driving the American Racing Custom Wheels #29 Keneric Racing car into third place.

"We got by Joey and we were kind of catching Daryn in traffic and I thought I was very close to start battling Daryn [Pittman] for the lead and that's when the yellow came out," said the St. Marys, N.S.W., native. "I thought 'that's alright, we're in good shape here.' I was following Daryn, trying to be patient and I felt some rubber on the entrance of three and I'm like alright, and Daryn had found it but he was sliding up on the exit. For some reason I decided to search in the wrong spot and Joey went blowing by where I should have been. It was a great race I really enjoyed myself."

The win pushes Pittman back to the championship lead with an eight point lead over Paul McMahan. Donny Schatz who led coming into the day, fell to third, trailing Pittman by ten points.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is back in action Friday night at the Salina (Okla.) Highbanks.

Donny Schatz Drives to His First Devil’s Bowl Speedway Victory
Holds off McMahan at Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing

MESQUITE, Texas - April 18, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returned on Friday to Devil's Bowl Speedway, site of the series' inaugural event in 1978, and five-time series champion Donny Schatz earned his third victory of the season in the Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels.

Paul McMahan made a last-lap effort to steal the win, settling instead for a second-place finish. Sammy Swindell, the driver with the most success in World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series competition at Devil's Bowl, completed the podium. Joey Saldana was fourth while defending series champion Daryn Pittman earned the KSE Hard Charger award after starting 11th and rounding out the top five.

Heat race winners Wayne Johnson and Texan Sam Hafertepe Jr. led the field to the green flag in the 25-lap feature event. Johnson jumped out to a quick lead before the caution flew as Hafertepe's right rear tire failed him.

On the restart Johnson, Schatz and Swindell went three-wide into turn one at the unique half-mile near Dallas. Johnson held on to the lead and charged out of turn two. Coming to the stripe on lap 9, Johnson had to navigate lap traffic. Schatz in the STP/Armor All #15 of Tony Stewart Racing pulled to the back of Johnson on the back stretch and darted to the bottom to drive around Johnson to take the lead. McMahan earned the second spot three laps later.

Johnson pulled off on lap 17 after rolling to a stop with a mechanical issue. Schatz led the field to the green with McMahan on the outside. The restart gave McMahan, behind the wheel of the Bair's Tree Services # 51 CJB Motorsports entry another chance to steal the win. Schatz got a strong start, but McMahan dropped down following right on Schatz's bumper. McMahan fell back while Schatz continued to power on.

In the closing laps McMahan had one more shot to make the pass and he was within striking distance on the final lap. Schatz went to the top of the track and McMahan charged to the bottom. As they exited it was still Schatz who went on for his third win this season, all on half-mile tracks.

The win marked Schatz's 150th victory of his World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series career, three behind Mark Kinser for third all-time, and he did with former crew chief and mentor Kenny Woodruff in attendance as many of the original Outlaws have descended upon Devil's Bowl for this special weekend event. Woodruff was crew chief on Jimmy Boyd's car that won the inaugural World of Outlaws event in 1978 at the half-mile oval in Mesquite.

"To make it 150 at Devil's Bowl, a place I've never won, it's extra special," said Schatz, of Fargo, N.D. "Kenny probably taught me some of the most important fundamentals there are in this sport. To this day I still use them every day. It's an honor to have him here, it's an honor to have raced with him and it'd be kind of cool if I could get my picture with him and (his wife) Annie tonight.

"The guys that did this back then, we've got easy lives compared to what they did. They had to work their tails off and things were a lot different, so hat's off to them and it is an honor to have them here tonight."

McMahan, came close to victory, crossing the stripe second after a strong last lap effort.

"They're good, they're the guys we're all aiming to beat, the guy won 23 races last year," said McMahan, of Nashville, Tenn. "To be that close, it definitely sucks, but at least we had a pretty good race car. To come here where the World of Outlaws all started, you know (series founder) Ted Johnson had a vision and it's gone pretty well and I'm just lucky to be a part of it. Steve (Kinser) and Sammy (Swindell), they've been doing it a long, long time and hopefully I can do it as long as they do."

Swindell, a 12-time winner in World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series competition at Devil's Bowl and driver of the Big Game Tree Stands #1 took third from Jason Sides on a lap-17 restart to round out the podium.

"I just made a little mistake there when Paul pulled down in front of me and I didn't expect him to do that and it kind of took the air off of the car and I slid across and hit the wall coming off of four," said Swindell, of Germantown, Tenn. "I let a few guys get by and I had to work real hard to get through that. I don't think we were exactly right, but we're close. There are places we're faster and a few places we're not."

The win pushes Schatz back into the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship lead by only by a point over McMahan. Defending champion Pittman sits in third, six markers behind Schatz.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is back in action Saturday night to cap off the Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels with a $20,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start main event. On-track activity is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. with racing at 8 p.m.

RULE AMENDMENT: During the Thursday night event at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March, Joey Saldana transferred to the A-main, as well as the dash, through his heat race. Saldana was subsequently injured during the dash and advised by on-site medical personnel to seek further attention. He was transported to a local hospital for examination, meaning he was unable to start the A-main.

That night, following series rules, Saldana was awarded non-transfer driver points (75) in the championship while his team used a replacement driver to start the A-main and pull off after the green flag waved to receive last-place A-main points (102) in the team standings.

After a thorough review of the situation, the World of Outlaws determined the rule was flawed, as it pertained mainly to drivers who had not already qualified for the A-main. Therefore, an updated guideline will be added to the rulebook stating a dash car or driver that cannot start the A-main due to crash or injury will be awarded a last-place A-main finish. In addition, Saldana will be awarded the difference between the non-transfer points he received and last-place points in the A-main, a difference of 27 points that will be added to his total in the championship standings.

WHEN, WHERE, HOW MUCH? Answers for many questions about this weekend's event at Devil's Bowl Speedway, including the schedule and ticket prices, can be found on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series website and the specific event page for the Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels by clicking www.WoOSprint.com/Texas-Outlaw-Nationals.

TIDBITS: Friday night's event will be the first time the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has raced at Devil's Bowl Speedway since 2003, but it will also mark the 100th all-time Outlaw race at the historic Mesquite track. The series has run 51 full-points events and 48 preliminary events at Devil's Bowl. ... Sammy Swindell is the leading winner in World of Outlaws history at Devil's Bowl with 12 full-points wins and 11 preliminary feature victories. Steve Kinser has 10 full-points victories and 7 preliminary wins, meaning Swindell and Kinser have combined to win 40 percent of all the World of Outlaws races at Devil's Bowl. ... Joey Saldana won World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series feature events at Devil's Bowl in 2001 and 2002, joining his father, Joe, who won at Devil's Bowl before the Outlaws came into existence in 1978. ... The first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event was in March of 1978. Norman Martin and Doug Wolfgang won the preliminary nights while Jimmy Boyd is credited with the first official full-points victory. Steve Kinser, who would go on to become the 20-time King of the Outlaws with 577 feature event victories and countless preliminary wins finished last in the first feature. ... Kasey Kahne Racing's Daryn Pittman enters the weekend with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship lead. Pittman is the fourth different driver to lead the standings in the first 15 events of the season.

Madsen Captures El Paso World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Win
Aussie celebrates wedding anniversary with second victory of season

EL PASO, Texas - April 15, 2014 - It was Kerry Madsen's night on Tuesday at El Paso Speedway Park as the Aussie held off charges by Steve Kinser, Daryn Pittman and Donny Schatz to earn his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season, celebrating the win with his wife, Tina, on their 14th anniversary.

Kinser and Pittman would hang on to finish second and third with Brad Sweet and Sammy Swindell rounding out the top five in West Texas.

Madsen led the 30-lapper to green in the American Racing Custom Wheels Keneric Racing #29. From the pole position he charged to the lead and rode the highest part of the 3/8-mile oval and maintained his position.

"It feels bloody fantastic," said Madsen, of St. Marys, N.S.W., Australia. "These races are so hard to win, and there are so many good cars and even though you've got a good starting position it really doesn't mean anything. The track was fantastic because there were so many lines that it was actually confusing because you didn't know which lines to pick. Every restart I couldn't do what I did in three and four. Tina definitely brought a bit of luck and we'll have to bring her to more races for sure."

Schatz moved into third behind Jason Sides by going under Pittman in turns one and two. A caution flew on lap 13 when Jason Sides spun while running second. He recovered to eventually finish in the 12th.

Steve Kinser, who won last year at El Paso, made his presence known on the restart as he advanced from the fourth to second in the Bad Boy Buggies #11 of Tony Stewart Racing. Kinser snuck past Pittman and Schatz and followed Madsen into turn one. Caution flew again on lap 20, this time for 2013 top rookie David Gravel, who was running sixth at the time.

Then it got wild. On the ensuing restart, contact sent Schatz bouncing through turn four and eventually slowing to a stop, bringing out another caution and sending him from third to the tail of the field and leaving Kinser to try to chase down Madsen.

"We were running as good as we were," said Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion from Bloomington, Ind. "If I hit two just right I could really get out of there, but I'd miss it more than I'd hit it. I could run a couple of different spots, the race track was really good. I thought it was a really great race track tonight."

The final restart was single file with the battle for the final spot on the podium between Kasey Kahne Racing teammates Pittman and Sweet. Pittman started in third, but Sweet used a strong run coming off of turn four to get the position. On lap 27, Pittman and the Great Clips #9 went to the bottom of turn one to get back around Sweet for good.

"We just didn't have it tonight, I don't know if it was me or the car or what, but truthfully we just struggled after time trials," said Pittman, of Owasso, Okla. "For us to come out of here with a third-place finish and the point lead on a night where I really feel like as a team, as a whole we struggled, I'll take it. Top-three's and top-five's, that's what's going to pay off in November and we'll take it."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series makes a long-awaited return to Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, April 18-19 for the Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels. Devil's Bowl was the site of the inaugural World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event in March of 1978 and played a key role in the history of the series in the 1980s and '90s. Now the series returns for the first time since 2003.


EL PASO SPEEDWAY PARK NOTES - David Grave was the fastest qualifier around the semi-banked, 3/8-mile of El Paso Speedway Park with a time of 13.274 seconds to earn five championship points. Also earning points were Daryn Pittman (4 points), Logan Schuchart (3), Donny Schatz (2) and Joey Saldana (1). Brad Sweet, Tim Kaeding, and Sammy Swindell won heat races. ... The dash draw was a 6 for the fifth time this year. ... Kerry Madsen won the dash for the second time this year. … By passing 10 cars in Tuesday's feature event, Tim Kaeding earned his 6th KSE Hard Charger award of the 2014 season.

World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars at a Glance: El Paso Speedway Park
Five-time champion Donny Schatz leads series to Texas

EL PASO, Texas - April 14, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is invades El Paso Speedway Park on Tuesday night. While the Kasey Kahne Racing tandem of Daryn Pittman, Brad Sweet and Cody Darrah, along with Saturday night winner Joey Saldana, have garnered most of the attention over the past few weeks, five-time series champion Donny Schatz has quietly emerged from the Outlaws California Spring Break as the championship points leader with a series-high nine top-five runs.

All eyes will most likely be on the 20-time King of the Outlaws Steve Kinser Tuesday night. A year ago Kinser parked his Bad Boy Buggies Maxim in victory lane at El Paso, and he will no doubt be trying to duplicate that effort on his "Salute to the King" tour stop in the West Texas town.

Saldana Breaks Through for His First World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Victory of the Season in the SoCal Showdown
‘Brownsburg Bullet’ wins at Perris Auto Speedway for second time in three years

PERRIS, Calif. - April 12, 2014 - Joey Saldana converted his seventh quick time of the season into his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season on Saturday night in the SoCal Showdown at Perris Auto Speedway.

Daryn Pittman made him earn it. Saldana was forced to hold off repeated slide job attempts by the defending series champion before eventually taking the checkered flag. Pittman wound up second with his KKR teammate Brad Sweet in third. Sammy Swindell and Paul McMahan rounded out the top five.

Saldana has been remarkable in qualifying this season, setting the pace for the night by earning his seventh quick time in 14 events behind the wheel of the Motter Equipment HE&M Saw #71M to guarantee him a starting position in the dash, where for the second consecutive night a "0" was drawn for the invert.

The 30-lap A-main showcased a battle between Saldana, who won in 2012 at Perris, and Pittman, who won last season at Perris. Saldana won the original start, but a spin in turn one by Friday night winner Cody Darrah forced a complete restart. Pittman, who was on the pole, took a run into turn one to try a slide job on Saldana, but as Pittman slid up the track Saldana again powered around him for the lead.

A caution on lap 2 gave Pittman another chance, and on the restart on Saldana chose the top line, but Pittman used some grip on the bottom to power to the lead in the Great Clips #9 Kasey Kahne Racing machine. Pittman was forced into a defensive stance as Saldana threw a slide job in turn two on the following lap. Saldana, too, slid up the track allowing Pittman to hold the lead.

Then a caution flew again on with five laps complete. Pittman chose the bottom, which put to the outside Saldana. Pittman looked for the grip, but Saldana got a strong run as well. Pittman led into the corner on the bottom, but Saldana surged to the lead to make the pass to go in front, where he remained for the rest of the way.

Pittman and Sweet closed the gap to Saldana on lap 11, and pulled to Saldana's bumper on lap 13 before another caution flew. Saldana chose the top and used a great restart to cruise to the win.

Saldana and his team celebrated its first victory of the year with a few special guests with the team.

"We have Workshops for Warriors here tonight and we owe a lot to them or we couldn't be out here racing," said Saldana, of the Brownsburg, Ind. "If it wasn't for all the veterans out there that work hard for us, I couldn't do what I love to do, which is race. A great night for us, we'll take it Daryn definitely made me work for it, it was tough. It was just a good night. Thanks to Dan Motter, he's is in Chile at the moment, but I'm sure he was pretty excited. Actually Daryn pretty much showed me the track was kind of moving down a little bit and had some drive, but up until that point it was crazy on those restarts."

Pittman kept the pressure on Saldana all night, really closing the gap in the waning laps.

"I felt like we probably had the best car, even after he got the lead we could run him back down," said Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion from Owasso, Okla. "Unless he made a mistake and I was able to get some speed on him on the straight away it was hard to pull the trigger and slide him, the track was just tough. We had a good car, really felt like those restarts were critical and just didn't know what to do. I probably could have used more race track on the front stretch to slow down his momentum on the starts and a couple of the ones I bailed out on maybe I didn't have to."

After winning last weekend in Calistoga, Sweet was the lone native of the Golden State on the podium on the final night of the California Spring Break Tour, which has featured eight races in California over the past several weeks. Sweet held off a late-race charge from Swindell to put the SureTestSupplies.com #49 of Kasey Kahne Racing on the podium.

"We'll take it after last night," said Sweet, a native of Grass Valley, Calif., who had a rough night on Friday at Kings Speedway. "We were good all night, like Daryn said it was just tough to get a run. I've got my grandparents here and some friends and family so it's always good to run in front of them. I'm pretty happy to come home in third. I raced pretty hard with Sammy [Swindell] for third and fourth and we were able to bring it out here on the front stretch so that's all you can ask for tonight and we'll go on to the next one."

Five-time champion Donny Schatz continues to lead the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship standings, taking a seven-point advantage into Tuesday's race in El Paso, Texas. McMahan is hanging tough in second as Pittman gained ground and trails Schatz by only 12 points. Saldana is in the fourth place only 39 points behind while Sweet rounds out the top five trailing by 46 points.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Tuesday night, April 15, at El Paso Speedway Park, where last year Steve Kinser picked up his first win of the season.

Darrah Delivers at Kings Speedway for His First World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Victory of 2014
Victory is third consecutive win for Kasey Kahne Racing

HANFORD, Calif. - April 11, 2014 - Cody Darrah drove Kasey Kahne Racing to its third consecutive World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory on Friday night at Kings Speedway.

Darrah slid in front of Joey Saldana coming out of turn two on lap 16, then held him off to the checkered flag to earn his first victory of the season. Darrah and his Ollie's Bargain Outlets car becomes the third different KKR driver to win in the past three races, joining last weekend's Calistoga feature winners Brad Sweet and Daryn Pittman.

Saldana led the field to the green and maintained the lead over the first 15 laps after collecting his sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series quick-time award. Saldana held onto second for his fifth consecutive top-five finish with Paul McMahan in third, Tim Kaeding charging from 13th to fourth and Donny Schatz earning the KSE Hard Charger Award by finishing fifth after starting 18th.

Saldana took the early lead in the Motter Equipment/HE&M Saw #71M. California's Kyle Hirst picked up two positions in the first two laps going from fourth to second. Caution flew on lap 8 for Kraig Kinser spinning in turn one, but Saldana again returned the lead on the restart.

Mayhem ensued on a lap 15 restart. Saldana chose the bottom on the double-file restart with the KKR trio of Sweet, Darrah and Pittman filed in behind. Saldana and Sweet were locked side-by-side down the front stretch when they made contact slowing Sweet. Pittman ran up the back of Sweet's #49 car and tipped over to bring out a red.

On the ensuing restart, Saldana led the field single-file down the front stretch. He went to the top of turn one while Darrah dove to the bottom. Darrah charged through the corner to steal the lead in what wound up being the pass for the victory.

"This win means so much for us, for my team," said Darrah, of Red Lion, Pa. "First and foremost I've got to thank Kasey, he's given me such an opportunity to come out here and drive this car. A couple of weeks ago he called me up and said if we don't run any better we might have to pull off the road. We're out here racing for more than a win, we're racing for a job and to make him proud and show him we can do it.

"On these restarts I had a little more drive than Joey did. It's hard to slide Joey Saldana, it's hard to get through the next corner without getting slid again, but we did it."

Saldana held off McMahan to secure a second-place finish.

"We had a decent car, we just got to free there, but I want to apologize to the 49 guys, Brad Sweet," said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind. "I got some traction and we got together. That's not how you want to race and I'm sure they're pissed off about it. Congratulations to Cody Darrah, he had a hell of a run tonight he did exceptionally well. This track was pretty demanding, pretty tricky. We just came up short on that one single-file restart, don't know why I went to the top. I'd been running the bottom all night. But we'll take it and head on to Perris."

McMahan battled Hirst for the third spot on the lap-15 restart. Hirst held off McMahan for a bit but McMahan was able to make his way around the bottom to earn a podium finish in the CJB Motorsports Bair's Tree Service #51.

"It's always great to see Cody winning, but I'd rather see me winning," joked McMahan, a native of Elk Grove, Calif., who now lives near Nashville. "Everybody at CJB motorsports gave me a great race car. I was working the bottom for a little bit and that gave up on me and I had to get up top. Once you get up there you've got to be right on their bumper to slide somebody, but then you've got to get it 'whoaed' up a bit so you don't blow it off the top."

Five-time champion Donny Schatz's consistency is beginning to pay off as he increased his lead in the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship standings to 12 points over McMahan and 24 points of Pittman.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finishes off its California Spring Break on Saturday night in Southern California at Perris Auto Speedway.

American Racing Custom Wheels to Sponsor World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Texas Outlaw Nationals on April 18-19 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. - April 11, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has its roots in Devil's Bowl Speedway, site of its inaugural event in 1978. Today, American Racing Custom Wheels announced it will play a major role in the Outlaws' return to the unique half-mile dirt oval on April 18-19 in Mesquite, Texas, as a sponsor of the Texas Outlaws Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels.

The two-day event at Devil's Bowl, where the series last raced in 2003, features a reunion of 'Original Outlaws' that helped to launch the series 37 years ago. Two of those drivers, Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell, became racing legends and are still competing today for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship. Like those drivers, American Racing Custom Wheels has been an iconic brand among car aficionados around the world for decades so bringing the two together at Devil's Bowl Speedway is a perfect fit.


"We are obviously very involved with the World of Outlaws, and when the opportunity to be directly involved with the Texas Outlaw Nationals was presented we knew our historic wheel brand would be the perfect partner to a storied group of racers and their reunion," said Dan Ricehouse of American Racing Custom Wheels. "We are looking forward to being part of such a big weekend."

American Racing Custom Wheels is an official sponsor of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series and the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, but this will mark the first time they have put their name on an Outlaw event.

"There will be so much history at Devil's Bowl it's only natural a company like American Racing Custom Wheels is part of it," said World of Outlaws CMO Ben Geisler. "The Texas Outlaw Nationals presented by American Racing Custom Wheels will certainly be a 'can't miss' event for fans because we've already seen how the racers that make up the foundation of the sport are embracing it. We are definitely looking forward to seeing so much history on display."

HANFORD, Calif. - April 8, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winds down its California Spring Break tour this weekend with events on Friday at Kings Speedway and Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway.

Brad Sweet's victory on Saturday night gives him three wins for the season, one more than teammate Daryn Pittman and Schatz.

What to expect this weekend? Well, Schatz won last year at Kings Speedway and Pittman won last season at Perris, but the competition remains fierce, and there's no doubt Steve Kinser on his "Salute to the King" tour would love to get his eighth victory in Hanford and notch his first feature win in Perris.

Pittman Leads Kasey Kahne Racing Sweep on Sunday at Calistoga
Sweet, Darrah join Pittman as first teammates to finish 1-2-3 in World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series competition

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 6, 2014 - Kasey Kahne Racing dominated the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series weekend at Calistoga Speedway as Daryn Pittman put the finishing touches on a masterful Sunday night for the three-car team.

Pittman led teammates Brad Sweet, who won Saturday night, and Cody Darrah to the checkered flag at picturesque half-mile Calistoga in California's mountainous wine country to become the first teammates in series history to sweep the top three finishing positions.

Pittman earned the Sunday night victory in his Great Clips #9 car by passing polesitter Darrah on lap 17, then holding off Sweet to the checkered flag. Rico Abreu finished fourth with Joey Saldana rounding out the top five.

Darrah and his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb Ollie's Bargain Outlet #4 led the field to green and built a lead while the field raced side-by-side behind him, including a duel for fourth between Saldana and two-time champion Jason Meyers. The two swapped positions several times before Meyers took the position on lap eight as Pittman and Sweet set their sights on Darrah.

Nine laps into the 25-lap feature the leaders hit traffic, with Darrah moving through the first few cars while Pittman was unable to make a move. On lap 11 Pittman started weaving through the traffic and began tracking down Darrah. Two laps later Sweet had caught the leaders, battling with Pittman back and forth before Pittman moved ahead and started reeling in Darrah.

Pittman closed within a car length on lap 15 and on lap 17 went to the bottom in turn three and made the line stick to pass his teammate coming out fourth corner.

The lone caution of the event was on lap 20 for a slowing Logan Schuchart. When the green flag flew to restart, Sweet went to the top to get a run on Pittman, but Pittman stuck the car on the bottom and took his second win of the season.

"For us to finish one, two, three for our organization is awesome," said Pittman, of Owasso, Okla. "To be leading it makes it that much better. I'd be happy if I ran third to these two guys. Brad [Sweet] has been the car to beat all year so for him to drive by us and for us to get back by him when he made a mistake and missed the bottom is a big win for this team. We haven't been struggling by any means, but we just haven't got the wins and may be the top-fives we think we should be getting. We got lucky we got back by Brad and were able to get the lead and luckily we were able to hold on to it."

Sweet, who also set quick time on Sunday night, followed up his third win of the season on Saturday with a runner-up finish in the SureTestSupplies.com #49.

"It just shows you how great this organization is," said Sweet, who grew up in Grass Valley, Calif. "You know three cars, this isn't an easy competition it isn't easy to come out here and run top three with these guys. Hopefully Kasey's in Texas smiling at us you know watching three cars battle for a win like that. I got by Daryn [Pittman] there for a second and kind found the bottom and then I missed the bottom and kind gave that spot back. The right rear started going down a little low and we were just kind of happy to bring it home in second."

Trying to break up the sweep was Abreu, who continued attacking Darrah all the way to the checkered flag. Darrah was able to hold the position to complete the sweep for KKR.

"With such an open notebook here, everyone can see each other's set-up," said Darrah, of Red Lion, Pa. "I didn't think I was going to get the start. Starting on the bottom all night has been tough, but I got the jump and got out there. I was making pretty good pace, but I got to the back of that lapped car and felt like I wasn't gaining. I started to move around and I put together two terrible laps together there. I didn't see the hole off of two until I got in it and I kind of cheated three and four and really slowed up and Daryn got by us. I felt like our car was good enough to win and I didn't put it together for them. This is awesome to be out here top three with our guys."

Donny Schatz finished ninth in the event and remains the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship leader by one point over Pittman. Paul McMahan sits in the third position 26 markers back.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Friday, April 11, at Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif., and Saturday, April 12, at Perris Auto Speedway.

Sweet Earns Third World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Victory of 2014
Grass Valley, Calif., native takes the checkered in front of family and friends on night one of Calistoga double-header

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 5, 2014 - It was friends and family night for California native Brad Sweet on Saturday at Calistoga Speedway after he held off Brian Brown in a thriller for his third World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Sweet and Brown flipped the lead several times in traffic before Sweet, of Grass Valley, Calif., pulled ahead for the victory in the waning laps, kicking off a victory celebration that included several of his friends and family members from his native Golden State.

Brown, who lost the lead while working through lapped traffic, held on for the runner-up finish. Joey Saldana started and finished in third while Donny Schatz was fourth and another hometown hero, Rico Abreu, rounded out the top-five on the first of two nights of World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series action at Calistoga.

Brown jumped out to a quick lead over pole-sitter Schatz. Brown continued to lead on lap six when the caution flew for David Gravel, winner of the previous event at Merced Speedway last Friday night. On the restart, a red flag would fly for contact with Bud Kaeding and Austin Wheatley. The ensuing restart was single-file as Brown continued to lead. On lap 11 the leaders hit lapped traffic at the half-mile oval. A bobble in traffic on lap 12 cost Brown the lead as Sweet, behind the wheel of the Kasey Kahne Racing SurePointMedical.com #49 drove by him in turn four.

Brown regained his composure and continued to track Sweet with virtually no distance between the two around the half-mile oval. Brown's persistence paid off on lap 14 when Sweet had to check up for a lapped car on the backstretch allowing Brown to blow by him on the inside.

Sweet continued to push for the lead and made the pass for the win on lap 16. Brown had a final chance to battle for victory after a caution on lap 21 for Paul McMahan with a flat right rear tire. On the restart Brown began to get a run on Sweet when the red flag was thrown for DJ Netto and Lucas Wolfe making contact. Brown slung the FVP/Casey's General Store #21 to the top of the track to try to pass while Sweet drove to the bottom and was able to maintain his advantage.

Sweet held on for the remaining few circuits to collect the victory in the 25-lap A-main.

"Holy cow that was tough!" Sweet said. "The track guys worked their butts off and gave us a good race track. I was lucky enough to get that caution (lap 21) because I was really hanging on for a minute. We were able to get through the dash and gain a row, then got really good starts in the A. Thank you to all my friends and family that are here, I'm glad you got to see me win and thanks to all the fans for coming out."

Brown continues to close in on his first victory with the series, missing by one position on Saturday night.

"It was kind of tough you know when you got to traffic," said Brown, of Grain Valley, Mo. "I think we had the fastest car out in clean air, but when you get to traffic and just slow down and hit the holes wrong, you're just along for the ride. After the month we've had a second feels like a win. We're disappointed, but we're definitely not ungrateful."

Saldana began the night by shattering Mark Kinser's 1997 track record with a lap of 15.731 seconds then finishing third in the Motter Equipment HE&M Saw #71M.

"I race these things, but I'm also a fan, and that was an awesome race," said Saldana, of Brownburg, Ind. "I just wish I was in it. Lapped traffic I knew would be a key and just whoever hit it at the right time, and that yellow flew just right for Brad. If I was going to have a chance I didn't need that yellow. It was a good race and a solid night for us, I'll take it. I'm very happy with that and come back tomorrow and hopefully do a little better."

McMahan after changing a tire and bringing out a caution late in the race settled for an 18th-place finish that led to five-time champion Schatz recapturing the point lead by solid 23 points over McMahan. The 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion, Daryn Pittman, sits just one point back of McMahan with Brad Sweet in the fourth position, 45 points outside of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to Calistoga Sunday night to complete the weekend. Action will be moved up one hour with racing starting at 6 p.m.

Homecoming
The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series was born in 1978 at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. It returns to Mesquite on April 18-19 for the Texas Outlaw Nationals featuring a reunion of ‘Original Outlaws’

MESQUITE, Texas - April 4, 2014 - None of them knew what was ahead back in March of 1978. Ted Johnson gathered a collection of racers from around the country at Lanny Edwards' Devil's Bowl Speedway for the track's spring nationals. Johnson got them the buy in, literally, in some cases, to a vision he had. The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series was born that weekend in Texas. Now, 37 years later and more than a decade since it last competed at the unique half-mile oval, they're coming home to the Texas Outlaw Nationals on April 18-19.

Two of today's stars were there that weekend: Steve Kinser, who would eventually win 20 championships and become known as the King of the Outlaws, and Sammy Swindell, a standout on quarter-miles around western Tennessee who had never raced on a track as big as Devil's Bowl but would go on to win three championships and rank behind only Kinser in all-time wins.

Kinser, a winner of 577 full-points features in his Outlaw career, finished last that day. He never envisioned 20 titles, 12 Knoxville Nationals wins, starts in the Indianapolis 500 or the Daytona 500. The son of Bob Kinser, a legendary sprint car racer in his own right, Steve was just hoping for a chance to race on the weekends around his native Bloomington, Ind. Now he's celebrating his "Salute to the King" season with one last run at winning a 21st crown.

Johnson banded together Kinser and a handful of other sprint car racers and started barnstorming the country. The popularity of the Outlaws grew quickly, but its roots were firmly entrenched in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, in Johnson's adopted home state of Texas. Fans from all around the plains would make the trek to Devil's Bowl, including a kid from suburban Tulsa, Okla., named Daryn Pittman, who would grow up to not only race against the stars he watched but eventually become their champion.

That March weekend was a beginning, but to what nobody really knew. Johnson collected some money for a point fund, put a schedule together and the rest is history.

"The first weekend we ran Devil's Bowl I ran a red #86 car owned by Jerry Smith out of Missouri, and then after we left there I started running Karl's car," said Kinser, who was an Indiana state wrestling champion and the son of one of the sport's greatest racers of all-time. "I just remember the first weekend Ted Johnson came up and said we needed $40 or $50 to start a point fund … nobody really knew what we were getting into but it just took off from there. All I was trying to do then was hope that I could race on the weekends somewhere. I knew when I left there I had a pretty good shot at getting into Karl's car. I knew that was a good fast race car and I would have an opportunity to do some good."

He did a lot of good driving for Karl Kinser. He's known in racing circles the world over. He's inspired nearly every sprint car driver behind the wheel of a car today.

A couple of years later, Swindell was able to find owners who could field a car for him full-time on the circuit, and just like that he won two championships and sparked one of racing's greatest rivalries: Kinser vs. Swindell.

"Devil's Bowl was one of the first places that we went that was quite a ways from home," said Swindell, of Germantown, Tenn. "It was a big track for me, it was a lot larger than all the quarter-miles at home. It gave me a chance to learn to race a little different. It's kind of a place where I sort of grew up a little bit. We ran there quite a bit. It will be nice to go back. The owners, Lanny Edwards and his family, have always been really nice and been really good to us and really supported sprint car racing."

For kids like Pittman, who was born the year Johnson started the series, and five-time Outlaw champion Donny Schatz, who was born one year earlier and cheered for Doug Wolfgang while growing up in North Dakota, the Outlaws stirred a passion.

"It was what you looked forward to every year as a kid," said Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla. "We used to always try to make one trip if not two trips down to Devil's Bowl every year for the spring and the winter nationals. I went there a lot as a fan when I was a kid to watch. Obviously as a kid it helped spark your interest in what you wanted to become, what you wanted to do by watching those guys race four or five times a year."

Schatz is coming off a season in which he won 23 times, including his seventh FVP Knoxville Nationals title. With a couple of wins already this season, he's only four victories behind Mark Kinser for third all-time, and he's well-aware of his place in the history of the sport and those who came before him.

"When I was five years old I dreamed of doing this, now I'm 36 and I get to I live my dream every day," said Schatz, who earned the 149th feature win of his career last month at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway dirt track. "To see those guys who still have a love for the sport and they come and see the fans and be a part of the festivities and all the things that go on at the racetracks, it's definitely very humbling. I'm sure there will come a day when I get to that point when I get that opportunity too, at this time I just enjoy being a race driver and being part of the show."

While Kinser and Swindell will be behind the wheel when the Outlaws return to Devil's Bowl later this month, many of their former competitors will also be in attendance, celebrating the origin of the series that launched so many careers that have earned a place in the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa.

Doug Wolfgang will be there. Rick Ferkel will be there. Norman Martin, who won the first of two prelim nights, will be there. Bobby Marshall and Steve Perry will be there. Car owner CK Spurlock will be there as will his driver in that race, Charlie Swartz. Shane Carson, the racer turned promoter turned race director who is working to reunite all of these great drivers at Devil's Bowl, will be there. Even Jimmy Boyd's feature-winning car will journey from the Woodland Auto Display museum in California to Devil's Bowl for the event. Carson has nearly everybody involved in that first event in 1978 returning for this weekend, with the "Original Outlaws" signing autographs on Saturday afternoon.

Ultimately, there's just something about the unique half-mile that brings a smile and a distant look of fondness to the drivers' faces, as if they're answering questions but thinking ahead to the challenge of racing at the same time.

"It's a little different track," said Kinser, a 10-time winner Devil's Bowl. "It's got the frontstretch a little lower and the backstretch a little higher. You sort of run uphill going into 1 and 2, then you sail off into 3 and downhill into a lower straightaway. It's a little different racetrack and always a fun track to run on."

Swindell's 12 feature victories are the most of any World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series driver at Devil's Bowl.

"It's always challenging track because both ends are different and you're going uphill and downhill, you don't get that a lot of places," Swindell said. "The experience comes into play there so that helps. I look forward to the challenge."

Schatz started running on the Outlaw tour in earnest in 1997, when he was named rookie of the year. None of his 149 victories came at Devil's Bowl but he's certainly looking forward to changing that in a couple of weeks.

"I remember when I first went there," Schatz said. "It's definitely a unique surface, it's tricky to be able to race there. You look forward to that. It's where you can be better than someone else because it's not an easy place to get around. I look forward to trying to have a great run."

The history that will surround the two-day Texas Outlaw Nationals will be unparalleled. On Friday night, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series and Devil's Bowl will honor Kinser as part of the "Salute to the King" tour. Then on Saturday, the original Outlaws will participate in a one-of-kind autograph session with some of the greatest drivers to have ever wheeled a sprint car.

All seats for the event are reserved and available at www.WorldofOutlaws.com/tickets or by calling the ticket hotline at 877-395-8606.

GOLDEN ACHIEVEMENT
World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Star Paul McMahan was Raised on Dirt Tracks in California, Now He Leads ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ This Weekend Into Calistoga Speedway

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 1, 2014 - Paul McMahan was a 7-year-old quarter-midget racer in California when Steve Kinser, Rick Ferkel and the World of Outlaws first came to town in 1978. Flash forward to 2014 and that kid is now on top of the world, or to be more precise, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series.

Sure, he's moved away, got married, has a couple of kids, but make no mistake, returning Saturday and Sunday to Calistoga Speedway as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series points leader, even though it's only 10 races into the biggest schedule in motorsports, definitely is not lost on the personable McMahan.

"Back in 1978 when the Outlaws first came to West Capital Raceway, I was 7 years old and got to drive my quarter midget around the track during the national anthem," said McMahan, who earned the 1995 Calistoga Speedway championship. "That was the time when I said that's what I want to do, race with the World of Outlaws. As a kid you think about it all the time but you don't think it'll actually happen. To have that opportunity actually happen is phenomenal in itself, but to be leading the Outlaw points in your home state with all the fans that I grew up around is pretty cool."

It gets better. McMahan, a national champion quarter-midget racer from Elk Grove, Calif., not only got to be part of the show in 1978 at West Capital Raceway, but spent the day after the event hanging out with Kinser and Ferkel at a barbeque, solidifying his career path before he was even in the third grade.

Now residing in suburban Nashville, Tenn., McMahan is in the envious position of sitting atop the point standings over past champions like Daryn Pittman, Donny Schatz, Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell.

"It's always cool to be on top of the points," McMahan admitted before cautiously adding, "It's way too early to be thinking about that now, though. It's the first time I've led World of Outlaws points. To be there is a good spot, but it's a long road ahead of us."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars race this weekend in Calistoga, a track that certainly plays into McMahan's hand as a previous track champion. He has become a focal point of fan and competitor attention over the past few weeks the series has raced on the West Coast.

"Everyone talks about it, all the owners I've driven for in California, they're very proud of what I've done in my career, but it'd be a lot more special coming back in September if I've still got the point lead and it's a lot more than nine points.

"It's way too early to think about points, we're only 10 races into the season and we've got 80 races to go," McMahan said, while admitting it's nearly impossible to forget the championship standings. "You've got plenty of people who remind you about it through the day through social media."

For now McMahan and his CJB Motorsports team are staying focused on qualifying and winning races. After all, he's come a long way since that night in 1978.

Gravel Powers to World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Victory at Merced
Roth Motorsports teammates Kaeding, Hirst round out podium at California bullring

MERCED, Calif. - March 28, 2014 - East Coaster David Gravel doesn't have many laps around Merced Speedway, but after Friday night at the central California bullring you would think he grew up at the track. Gravel charged around the outside of Kyle Hirst on lap 25 and led the remaining 15 circuits to earn the third World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of his career.

Gravel, last season's Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, put his ART Enterprises/FMR racing #83SA in the winner's circle ahead of Tim Kaeding, who stormed past several cars in the waning laps of the event to earn a runner-up finish in his Roth Motorsports #83 while Kaeding's teammate Hirst finished third in the #83JR car, creating a podium sweep for the 83s. Joey Saldana was fourth while World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship leader Paul McMahan rounded out the top-five.

Gravel, whose car honored the late Stephen Allard, was quick from the beginning, resetting the track record and qualifying atop the 32-car field. A fifth-place dash finish set his starting position in the feature.

Early in the A-main, Hirst jumped to the lead from the pole position. Kerry Madsen slowly began to run down Hirst and was on his bumper on lap nine when a caution waved for Sammy Swindell, whose impressive attempt to run his unbeaten World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series streak at Merced came to an unfortunate end.

On the ensuing restart, Madsen shadowed Hirst and began to look for the lead on lap 12. Two laps later Madsen went around Hirst to lead lap 14.

Mason Moore and Steve Kinser made contact exiting turn two in front of the field on lap 18. Madsen was beginning to cruise and was trying to lap cars when Moore and Kinser got together, leaving Madsen with nowhere to go but upside down to bring out a red flag. Madsen, who won last week at Stockton in his American Racing Custom Wheels car, would rejoin the field, but in a heavily damaged car that resulted in a 20th-place finish.

On the lap 18 restart, Hirst inherited the lead. Brad Sweet pushed through the field and picking up a pair of positions and charging to the third position, but a spin in turn four triggered another full restart. That's when Gravel began to shadow second-place-running Saldana. Gravel snuck by on lap 20, then on 23 with was Hirst leading, Gravel and Saldana all went for the lead. Gravel stole the advantage on lap 24 around the outside of three and four. Immediately after Gravel crossed the line with the lead on lap 25 the caution was thrown for a stopped Madsen.

Gravel handled the next restart and went on to lead the remainder of the race to earn third World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory. He's also won at the Talladega (Ala.) Dirt Track and I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minn.

"Brad (Sweet) showed me the way around, then the yellow came out and I got real lucky there," admitted the young driver from Watertown, Conn. "Starting out the race in fifth, I got into fourth in the beginning and I just road around. Madsen used the top in three and four and got the lead and I figured I had to do that at some point. I had to wait until it was the right time. Everything worked out and we got the lead. Lap traffic worked our way, cautions worked our way and we got the victory."

Tim Kaeding thrilled the crowd with a huge move in the closing laps of the race in an effort that eventually moved the San Jose, Calif., native up to second place after starting 12th. Kaeding used the outside of the track to charge from fifth to second from laps 36 to 39.

"We had a great race car all night, just kind of started in the back there," Kaeding said. "We moved up a little bit and did the big pray and hoped that it stuck. Somehow it did and we ended up in second. I'm trying to figure out how. It's great for the season we've been having."


Kaeding's teammate, Hirst, rounded out the top three after leading the event early.

"You hate when people go around you, I'm okay with people going underneath me," said the Elk Grove, Calif., native. "When they go around you it sucks, I'm not sure if I should've moved up, but that's something I need to do as a driver and just move around. They outdrove me to tonight, congratulations to them and we'll try again tomorrow."

McMahan maintains the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship lead with his fifth-place finish. Five-time champion Donny Schatz trails McMahan by nine points with last year's champion Daryn Pittman running in third, only 25 points back.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its Spring Break Tour Saturday night for the Mini Gold Cup on March 29 at Silver Dollar Speedway.

DASH TWIST: Beginning with Friday's Merced Speedway event, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series will use a new format for the dash, which will be comprised of six cars. The dash will include the heat race winners plus the next fastest cars in qualifying that transfer from their heat to the A-main. The number of heat races will dictate the number of qualifiers that will join the dash, which will set the first three rows of the A-main.

STOCKTON FINISH REVISED: An officials' review of the finish from Saturday night's event at the Stockton Dirt Track revealed on Monday that Sammy Swindell's car sustained a transponder failure during the A-main, resulting in Swindell's car being scored incorrectly behind Brad Sweet after the two made contact on lap 15 with Swindell ahead. Neither car was able to continue. By World of Outlaws rules, since Swindell was ahead at the time of the incident, he will be awarded 20th position with Sweet finishing 21st.

Madsen Steals FVP Western Spring Shootout Win at Stockton
Aussie uses final-lap pass for World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Victory

STOCKTON, Calif. - March 22, 2014 - Kerry Madsen led just a single lap in the FVP Western Spring Shootout on Saturday night at the Stockton Dirt Track, but he made it count. Madsen surged ahead of Donny Schatz in the final corner, then won a drag race with the five-time champion in front of the packed grandstands to earn his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season by about half a car-length.

An ecstatic Madsen joked in victory lane, "I'd have done some doughnuts, but I didn't even know the race was over."

Schatz crossed the line just 0.115 seconds behind Madsen with Joey Saldana, who led the most laps, in third. Jason Meyers was fourth and polesitter Bud Kaeding was fifth.

Saldana drove around Kaeding to take the early lead before a caution fell on the second lap when defending series champion Daryn Pittman, his Kasey Kahne Racing teammate Brad Sweet and current points leader Paul McMahan all got together. Another incident on the ensuing restart then forced a single-file restart.

Schatz took his first lead seven laps into the 30-lap A-main, cruising around Saldana through the middle of the track. Schatz built a strong advantage until lap 13, when red flag flew. Schatz chose the outside lane on the double-file restart and Saldana powered back into the lead on the bottom of the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

Saldana grew his lead for several laps until Schatz made another started to close the gap with eight laps to go. Schatz challenged Saldana for several circuits with several pushes to take the lead. Finally, with two to go, Schatz charged to the bottom of turn one to reclaim the lead.

Madsen followed Schatz into second with one to go after running third much of the race. Then, on the final lap, Madsen put his American Racing Custom Wheels car on the tail of Schatz's STP/Armor All machine. Entering turn three Madsen went to the bottom as Schatz battled lapped traffic and the two were in a straight-line race to the checkered flag with Madsen taking the win by about half a car length.

"That was actually really exciting because Donny and Joey were just battling and I'm like I think I've got a shot here,'" said Madsen, a native of St. Marys, N.S.W., Australia. "It was one of those races where I think it paid to be behind the leader, because I found that line and I just got patient with it. I'm just rattled that we won that, I just did not expect that, that's cool."

After starting eighth, Schatz gave it all he could to win in his Tony Stewart Racing.

"Naturally I thought I won," said Schatz, of Fargo, N.D. "I guess you always think that. I did everything I could, but Joey got us on the start. I didn't expect anyone to come there on the bottom. I guess Kerry snuck by us on the bottom and got the win, good for him. I'd like to leave here with a win, but third last year, second tonight, may be next time we'll get a win."

Saldana was pleased with a top-three finish in the Motter Equipment HE&M Saw #71M.

"It's just so hard to win one of these races," said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind. "You can see how much effort you put into these cars. I definitely got some gifts there on some restarts. I was thinking Donny had the right groove there for the middle, but definitely there in lapped traffic you had to be right on the bottom and [Kerry Madsen] got us both."

McMahan recovered from the early spin to finish 11th and maintain the championship lead, down to a six-point advantage over Schatz. Pittman is third with Kerry Madsen and Steve Kinser rounding out the top five. The top five drivers are separated by only 30 points.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its California Spring Break on Friday, March 28, at Merced Speedway, and Saturday, March 29, in the Mini Gold Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico.

THE FVP WESTERN SPRING SHOOTOUT at THE STOCKTON DIRT TRACK NOTES - Joey Saldana was the fastest qualifier around the semi-banked, 3/8-mile of the Stockton Dirt Track with a time of 12.869 seconds to earn five championship points. Also earning points were Kerry Madsen (4 points), Paul McMahan (3), Brad Sweet (2) and Daryn Pittman (1). Rico Abreu, DJ Netto, Terry McCarl and Donny Schatz won heat races. ... The dash draw was a 4 for the third time this year... Bud Kaeding won the dash for the first time this year.

World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars Set to Sling Dirt at Berlin Raceway
Paved track’s dirt schedule grows with world’s premier sprint car series on Sept. 27

CONCORD, N.C. - March 18, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is set to invade Berlin Raceway on Saturday, Sept. 27, in Marne, Mich.

It marks the first time "The Greatest Show on Dirt" will race at Berlin, a semi-banked asphalt oval near Grand Rapids, Mich., that will be covered in dirt for a series of special events this fall, including the World of Outlaws Late Model Series' Keyser Manufacturing Down & Dirty Weekend on Sept. 12-13. The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars will take their shot at the storied venue two weeks later.

"The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars is something that the fans have wanted to see here ever since the World of Outlaws Late Model Series race was announced two years ago," stated Mike Bursley, Promoter of Berlin Raceway.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event has yet to be named, and Bursley is enlisting the fans' help to give it an identity.

"This is such a special event we want our fans to have a direct impact by letting them help choose the name for the event," Bursley said. Details on the event-naming process will be announced soon. "We received many excellent submissions for the Late Model race in 2012; we are excited to see what the fans will come up with this year."

The event will mark the final time the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars will race in the Wolverine State in 2014, and the last chance Michigan fans will have to see 20-time champion Steve Kinser on his "Salute to the King" tour, marking his final run at a World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship.

Tickets go on sale April 1, 2014 and can be purchased by visiting www.berlinraceway.com or by calling Berlin Raceway at 616-677-5000.

Abreu Claims First World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Victory
Californian cruised into victory lane at Thunderbowl Raceway

TULARE, Calif. - March 15, 2014 - Rico Abreu earned the biggest victory of his career on Saturday night when he powered to the checkered flag at Thunderbowl Raceway for his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory.

Abreu took the lead from Terry McCarl on lap eight, and then had to hold off veterans McCarl and Joey Saldana to earn the victory.

Rookie Logan Schuchart followed up a strong run on Friday night by eventually finishing second after making a daring late pass to the outside of McCarl on the banked one-third mile dirt oval. McCarl, who set quick time and then became the first driver to benefit from the "0" being pulled in the dash draw, settled for third after coming back from a near wreck on a restart. Sammy Swindell finished a season-best fourth while two-time event winner in 2014, Brad Sweet, was fifth.

Abreu made the pass on McCarl for the lead on lap 8 in turn one in his Abreu Vineyards #24. Abreu then had to defend the position on a restart for the first time on lap 11 after Cody Darrah brought out a red with a wreck in turn one.

Abreu restarted on the inside and has a strong jump while McCarl went high and bicycled the Country Builder #88 in turn one and fell to fourth.

The red flew again on lap 13 for a multiple car incident in turn one. McCarl was working to come back through the field on the following restart and was racing Schuchart for third before another stoppage, for the 41 entry of Dominic Scelzi with a flat right rear. On the ensuing restart Abreu surged to a strong advantage followed by Saldana and McCarl with Schuchart falling to fourth.

Saldana continued to run second and was reeling in Abreu when he was collected in a spin in turn four, forcing him to surrender his position on the restart and moving Schuchart into the third.

A final five-lap dash to the checkered flag unfolded with a single-file restart. Abreu again pushed to the lead followed by McCarl, Schuchart, Swindell and Sweet. Swindell tried to slide around Schuchart, but the rookie held his line and maintained the position and went after McCarl.

Schuchart built a run going into turn three to drive the Your Auto Source #1s Shark Racing entry around McCarl for the second position coming to the line with two to go, but nobody was going to touch Abreu, who cruised under the checkered flag to win for the first time.

"That was incredible," said Abreu, of St. Helena, Calif. "The pressure built up was huge, lining up next to Joey and my restarts this year have been terrible. Those were some pretty damn good starts. You race with the Outlaws so you can't over think things and that's what I tend to do. I was getting winded and I started breathing and slowing my arms down and slowing everything down and that was the key to winning this race tonight."

Schuchart rebounded from a bitter sweet finish on Friday night when he led 22 laps before falling outside the top five with an ill-handling car.

"It definitely feels good to come out here run good with these guys," said Schuchart, of Hanover, Pa. "We had doubts in our mind that we could come out here and run good. To come out here and run good and up front with these guys is good for our team. I wish I would have had a couple more laps and been able to race with Rico, but he's very fast and he's hard on these types of race tracks."

McCarl, of Altoona, Iowa, represented the Midwest and fought back from near disaster for a third-place finish.

"I left the same two tires all night long, we just cut them and siped them. I've lost a lot more races getting this thing too tight here. I almost dumped it on that restart to come back up and contend for a win was great. I've got to congratulate Rico and Paul Silva."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series spring break in California returns to action on Saturday, March 22, at the Stockton Dirt Track.

Pittman Surges to His First World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Victory of Season
Defending champ takes checkered flag at Thunderbowl Raceway

TULARE, Calif. - March 15, 2014 - Daryn Pittman charged to his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season on Friday night at Thunderbowl Raceway after a thrilling battle with polesitter Logan Schuchart.

After 22 laps, Pittman finally surged ahead of Schuchart, with Donny Schatz and Paul McMahan also motoring ahead of the rookie for podium finishes. Kerry Madsen followed his runner-up finish at Tucson with a fourth-place finish and Joey Saldana rounded out the top five.

Schuchart started the 35-lap main event from the pole at the high-banked, third-mile oval and jumped to the early lead over second starting Schatz. In the early going the battle was for third as Brad Sweet, a two-time winner this season, moved up to battle McMahan and the CJB Motorsports #51 for fourth. Sweet earned the position and immediately set his eyes on third, a position he quickly captured from Kasey Kahne Racing teammate Pittman. Schuchart continued to lead as the laps clicked away.

Pittman fired back in his Great Clips #9 car as a lapped car slowed Schatz's Tony Stewart Racing STP/Armor All #15 car. As Schuchart was faced with lapped traffic, Pittman and Schatz swept through to pass Schuchart and the race was on for the win with just 13 circuits remaining. Pittman was determined not to let the win slip away as it was his first victory since last July.

"I hated to admit how bad this has been burning me up personally and I'm sure this whole team how long it's been since we've won a race," admitted Owasso, Okla., native Pittman. "We had such a good year last year that I can't complain about anything … but we haven't won a race since July of last year. This has been the kind of voodoo place for me that I've never felt comfortable, and last year we came here and ran third and fifth and real well. To snap our non-winning streak here in Tulare, I'll tell you what, I couldn't be any happier."

On the tight track, Schatz was in constant traffic as he sought a way past Pittman.

"We weren't biding any time we were going for it. Logan was setting a really good pace and I was doing everything I could to chase him," said Schatz, a five-time series champion from Fargo, N.D. "We just needed lapped traffic to do that. We got going there and made some [spots] up there at the end."

McMahan, who had been under the weather all week, extended his championship points lead with his podium finish.

"It's been a heck of week, I've been sick all week," said the Elk Grove, Calif., native McMahan. "To come out here and put 35 laps together is pretty tough on me. The top started getting cleaned off a little bit the more cars got up there to clean it off. We were having a little problem getting off the corners with the motor stumble a little bit, but we'll get that fixed up and come back and try again tomorrow night. "

Schuchart held on to finish eighth, marking his first top-10 finish of the season.

Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws champion celebrating his Salute to the King tour, was seventh for his sixth top-10 in seven starts this season.

World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car touring drivers from California registered strong runs as McMahan earned the third place and Tim Kaeding who finished sixth and earned the KSE Hard Charger award picking up 11 spots in the feature event. Brad Sweet was running third until he had a motor let go forcing him off of the track.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns Thunderbowl Raceway Saturday night March 15. All of the action can be seen on www.DIRTVision.com.
