Kasey Kahne Racing – Results Recap
Sweet Wins in Stockton
Brad Sweet and the No. 49 NAPA AUTO PARTS/ASE/Sage Fruit team won their first race of the season, and first in NAPA colors, on Saturday night in Stockton, Calif. Daryn Pittman and the No. 9 Great Clips/ASE/Sage Fruit team didn’t have the qualifying effort they were looking for, but showed championship caliber resiliency and battled back through the heats to earn a 10th-place starting spot in the feature, eventually coming home in sixth when the checkered flags flew in the A-main.
Last night in Placerville, Calif. was the third annual Brad Sweet’s Short Track Showdown at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif. For the past three years, Brad has promoted the race bringing the Outlaws back to his home track. With a sold out crowd, solid car count and great track conditions, it’s been one of the more popular races on the Outlaws schedule.
Brad finished the feature around the 1/4 mile bullring in third, and Daryn came home with another sixth-place finish. The strong runs by the No. 9 team over the past few races have propelled them from sixth to fourth in the point standings.
The KKR teams head to Hanford (Calif.) tomorrow night and then Perris (Calif.) on Saturday.
