Pittman Seeks Repeat When World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars Invade Tucson for NAPA Wildcat Shootout
‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ rolls into Arizona’s Tucson International Raceway on March 8
TUCSON, Ariz. — Jan. 19, 2013 — The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to Tucson International Raceway on Saturday, March 8, for the NAPA Auto Parts Wildcat Shootout. Daryn Pittman held off Joey Saldana to win last season in Tucson.
“I really love Tucson,” Pittman said. “I told Kasey (Kahne) last year I was really excited about Tucson. I had never won there before, but it’s a really a fun track that suites me. It’s not fast, but it’s pretty flat and wide and somewhere I really enjoy.”
Pittman used the win to extend his points lead en route to winning the 2013 World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship.

‘King of the Outlaws’ To Make Final Run at
21st WoO Crown
During 2014 Campaign Dubbed ‘Salute to the King’
INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 11, 2013) – Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series champion, announced today the upcoming 2014 WoO campaign will be his final season chasing the series championship. The Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) driver, who won the series’ first championship during the WoO inaugural season in 1978, is looking to join a long list of greats who have closed their career hoisting championship hardware. His final season with the WoO, called “Salute to the King,” kicks off in February with the DIRTcar Nationals in Florida.
Kinser, an icon in short-track racing, has dominated the WoO series during his 35 seasons of competition. The Bloomington, Ind., native has earned 576 career WoO A-Feature triumphs and has filled the record book with accomplishments that likely will not be matched. His goal for this 2014 season is to add to those records while battling for the title.
