The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown on April 11 and 12

CONCORD, N.C. – April 7, 2015 – The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and the King of the West Series return to Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway this weekend for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown with one team looking to repeat its magic from 2014.

Last year, Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb took home wins on both nights at the semi-banked, half-mile oval. Brad Sweet held off Brian Brown on the first night while Daryn Pittman kept his KKR teammates at bay to win on night two. To cap off an already stellar weekend, the team swept all three podium positions on the second night.

Pittman comes into the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown this season after winning the 2015 sprint week championship at DIRTcar Nationals and scoring his second victory a week and a half ago at Antioch (Calif.) Speedway. He is one of just three drivers so far this season to have multiple wins. His KKR teammate, Sweet, has one win on the season at Volusia Speedway Park and sits third in the championship standings, just 13 points out of the lead.

Pittman and Sweet lead the Outlaws into the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown at Calistoga Speedway this Saturday and Sunday. The series first takes on Brad Sweet’s Placerville (Calif.) Short Track Outlaw Showdown presented by Riebes Auto Parts on Wednesday night.
