Thunderbowl Raceway

Brad Sweet and the No. 49 NAPA AUTO PARTS team captured a pair of podium finishes in back-to-back nights at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. last weekend. Daryn Pittman and the No. 9 Great Clips team didn’t have the night they were looking for on Friday with an 11th-place finish, but they came back swinging on Saturday by narrowly winning the feature in a wheel-to-wheel battle with Brad Sweet and Donny Schatz.

The KKR teams head to Stockton Dirt Track this weekend for another two-day show. Friday’s scheduled race at Stockton was cancelled early this morning due to Friday’s weather forecast, but Saturday’s is currently on as scheduled.

Vegas > California

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car series was at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas this weekend for back to back nights on Thursday and Friday. A great crowd, packed pit area, and tough track conditions are the norm for the 1/2 mile track located about 13 miles northeast of downtown Las Vegas.

Both KKR teams battled relentlessly bringing home a pair of top-10 finishes Saturday night. The No. 49 team is currently tied for second in points, and the No. 9 team is sixth.

Quick stop in Texas the headed out west

Just a quick update this week. The Outlaws had two races scheduled in Texas over the weekend: a new track in Kilgore on Friday and then over to Willis on Saturday. Friday was a good night for KKR with both cars qualifying in the top-10. Brad and the No. 49 NAPA AUTO PARTS team finished fourth in the feature and Daryn and the No. 9 Great Clips team came home in 10th. The track took rubber early which made it extremely difficult to pass.

Saturday in Willis was rained out, and rescheduled for April 13.

Championship winning crew chief Kale Kahne will move from the No. 9 to the No. 49 car this season, while Pennsylvania crew chief Eric Prutzman joins the family and will oversee the No. 9 team.

Fans are thirsty for the season to get started, as illustrated by some fun posts we’ve had on social media the past week.

Kasey gets in on the action, wins at Lincoln Speedway

The Easter off week brought some much deserved R & R to the KKR teams, but it provided the perfect opportunity for Kasey to get back behind the wheel of a sprint car and he did so in great fashion by winning Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway (PA).

Last week Pittman and the Great Clips team found some momentum finishing second two straight nights the second of which was special – Placerville was the track where he was involved in a hard crash with Jason Johnson and broke his collar bone. Pittman also jumped two spots in the points from fifth to third, while Brad maintains his point lead.

Brad Sweet continues his hot start to the 2016 World of Outlaws season by capturing two more podium finishes at Las Vegas and a fifth-place finish at Arizona Speedway over the weekend. The No. 49 team continues to lead the championship standings as the first west coast swing of the season starts Friday at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif.

Daryn Pittman and the Great Clips team had strong runs at Las Vegas, with a near-win Friday night at the 1/2 mile track, but a broken suspension late in the race at Arizona Speedway relegated the team to an 18th-place finish on Sunday night.

Daryn Pittman and the Great Clips team won their fourth race of the season last Saturday night at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Great Nationals Week in Iowa, 49 Team Adds New Crew Chief

Well known Pennsylvania crew chief Lee Stauffer was added to the No. 49 teams roster earlier this month, and the team quickly found success by winning the $20,000 to win Front Row Challenge at Southern Iowa Speedway last Monday, the week leading up to the Knoxville Nationals.

The KKR teams worked hard over four nights of racing at the most prestigious race week on the World of Outlaws schedule, finishing inside the top 10 in their qualifying races and they both finished in the top five in Friday night’s World Challenge race.

On Saturday, Brad Sweet captured his first career podium finish in the Knoxville Nationals, the richest race on the schedule which pays $150,000 to the winner. Daryn Pittman started the 50-lap race in 15th, and worked his way up to seventh before the checkered flag.

The teams kick off a mid-west to west-coast swing tonight at Junction Motor Speedway in Nebraska before stops in North Dakota, Alberta Canada, Washington, Oregon and California.

Month of Money Begins

One of the busiest stretches of the World of Outlaws season is now underway. With 16 feature events over the span of 30 days visiting Kansas, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Ontario, Canada and then back to the mid-west, July and August on the World of Outlaws tour prove to be the most grueling months in motor sports.

Brad Sweet and the No. 49 team picked up their third win of the season June 24th at I-96 Speedway in Michigan, while Daryn Pittman and the No. 9 team continue to contend for wins and finish up front night in and night out.

Kasey also got back into the action taking a car to Attica Raceway Park and Eldora for two All-Star Circuit of Champions races in mid-June. He had a race-winning run going at Attica before contact with only a few to go slipped him to a 5th place-finish, and Eldora was a great race as he started near the tail of the field and passed a lot of cars by the end of the race.
