Donny Schatz’s DNF streak ends at 178 races

BARBERVILLE, Fla. – Feb. 12, 2016 – In front of one of the largest crowds in DIRTcar Nationals history, Kasey Kahne Racing’s Brad Sweet and Daryn Pittman fought a pitched battle for the season opening World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series feature on Friday night. When the checkered flag fell, it was Sweet who took the win.
