Inside Line Promotions – KOKOMO, Ind. – The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series will return to Kokomo Speedway on Tuesday, Sept. 16, for a marquee event presented by High Performance Lubricants.
“Kokomo is awesome,” defending series champion Daryn Pittman said. “It’s always a great race. The line changes a lot throughout the race. You have to keep up with track conditions a lot as the groove changes several times. It’s one of the better races of the year.”
Pittman is seeking his first career World of Outlaws victory at the quarter-mile track, which features wheel-to-wheel racing.
“You have to focus on what your car is doing and as soon as you feel like something is changing or going away you have to keep your eyes ahead of you to see what other cars are doing, if you are gaining on them or pulling away,” he said. “It is tight and small. For as small as it is you see a lot of passing.”
Tim Kaeding won last year’s event with Indiana native Kraig Kinser claiming the 2012 race, which was the first World of Outlaws race at Kokomo Speedway in several years.
Steve Kinser, the series winningest driver and a resident of Indiana, has earned a series-best six victories at the track.
