Inside Line Promotions – FERGUS FALLS, Minn. – Defending World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion Daryn Pittman leads the premier sprint car series back to I-94 Speedway on Saturday, June 21.
Pittman set quick time and established a new track record during the inaugural visit to the track last season, when he ended the night with a second-place finish in the main event.
“It was a cool place,” he said. “I always enjoy going to new places. We had a chance to win and were strong all night.”
Although David Gravel captured the feature win, Pittman showcased speed throughout the race to help him build his championship points lead at the unique track.
“It was fun,” he said. “It was a good-sized 3/8 mile. It had good banking on it and was pretty quick.”
While Pittman held a triple-digit lead in the championship standings before and after last season’s race at I-94 Speedway, the title chase this season is much closer. The top four in the standings are within 73 points with Pittman only eight markers out of the lead.
