Pittman, Schatz Bring World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Championship Battle to Clay County, Deer Creek


Upcoming weekend could have huge impact on season-long battle between Kasey Kahne Racing and Tony Stewart Racing drivers


SPENCER, Iowa – Sept. 11, 2013 – For the past four years, Daryn Pittman was competing throughout Central Pennsylvania against some of the toughest sprint car racers in the country. Now, he’s on top of the world. The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, that is.


Kasey Kahne picked Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla., to drive his #9 Great Clips car this season and Pittman has not disappointed. He won the opening night of the season in February at Volusia Speedway Park and has led the championship standings ever since. Neither Pittman nor Kahne has ever won a World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car title, and heading into this weekend on Friday at the Clay County Fair Speedway and Saturday at Deer Creek Speedway he has a 66-point lead over Donny Schatz.


Schatz, of Fargo, N.D., who drives the Tony Stewart Racing STP/Armor All car, is doing all he can to chase down Pittman and win his sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship. Nobody has been hotter this season than Schatz, who already has tied his single-season career high for victories at 19, including his seventh Knoxville Nationals title.

Gravel Returns at Clay County

David Gravel Returns this Weekend at Clay County & Deer Creek
WATERTOWN, Conn. — Sept. 11, 2013— The last month has certainly been a long one for David Gravel as he battled mononucleosis, which included an enlarged spleen and also a double ear infection, and kept him out of 13 races with World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series. With a clean bill of health and clearance from his doctor, he’ll return to action this weekend with the series in a pair of races in the upper Midwest.
“It was definitely tough having to sit on the couch and listen to the races and not be able to be there, but I had to get healthy,” said Gravel. “I am young and have a lot of years ahead of me and it was in my best interest to get back to 100-percent and make sure everything was back to normal before returning to the track. I feel great now and am ready to climb in the car on Friday night.”
