Brad Sweet Battles Teammate Pittman to Take World of Outlaws Season Opener
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.
"It feels good to win any of these Outlaw races," Sweet said. "This is my third season, so I understand how grueling these years are and how important it is to start the year off strong. I also know that just because you win tonight doesn't mean anything for the future. We just have to keep digging and hopefully this is our year to win a lot of races."
Pittman took the first quick time of the season in his No. 9 Great Clips car as the series implemented a new format.

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 9, 2016) - One of the greatest accomplishments in sports is reaching the pinnacle, but one of the most difficult things is staying on top. Over the past decade, Donny Schatz and the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) team have set the standard in the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman® Sprint Car Series and are in the midst of a dynasty with three championships in the last four seasons on the strength of 91 victories.
The Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance team begins its quest to continue the dynasty by chasing a third consecutive WoO championship this week during Florida in February at the 45th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville.
