Darrah finds victory lane in Hanford; three-straight victories for KKR
Kasey Kahne Racing’s hot streak continued in California last weekend as Cody Darrah found victory lane at Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif. on Friday night. It was a back-and-forth battle between all three KKR teams before a multi-car crash midway through the race eliminated both Pittman and Sweet from the event. Darrah was able to hold on and drive away from the field for his first victory of the season.
The next night cars were on track at Perris Auto Speedway, where Daryn Pittman and Joey Saldana went back-and-forth in a crowd pleasing battle for the win on a very difficult track. Brad Sweet kept the leaders in his sights while racing with a handful of other cars for third, while Cody Darrah had some bad luck early in the race with contact with another car resulted in some damage to the front wing, but he was able to drive from the back of the field to an 11th-place finish.
Last night the World of Outlaw tour stopped in El Paso, Texas for a mid-week show at El Paso Speedway Park. The Kasey Kahne Racing teams were fast again off the trailers, and all three cars were in the top 10 at the end of the 30-lap feature, with Daryn Pittman taking over the season championship standings in a tight race early in the season.
The teams head to Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas for shows Friday and Saturday night.
