At A Glance: Outlaws Storm Into Midwest for First Time in 2016

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series head to Salina (Okla.) Highbanks on Friday, April 29 and Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the Spring Classic on Saturday, April 30

CONCORD, N.C. - April 28, 2016 - For the first time in 2016, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will venture into the heartland of the United States as they travel to Salina (Okla.) Highbanks on Friday, April 29 and then the annual Spring Classic at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. on Saturday, April 30.

Just two months into the grueling 10-month long 2016 season, there have already been eight different winners in just 20 races, which is on par with the 2015 season that had nine different winners at this same point.

Emotions Running Wild

Jason Sides is the most recent World of Outlaws competitor to claim a checkered flag, as he did so at his home race track of I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. just two days ago. Sides continues a trend of drivers claiming emotional wins, as Shane Stewart and Joey Saldana each had a tough time putting into words how much their wins at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas meant last weekend.

Home Track Advantage

Stewart, who sits second in the points standings and is a Bixby, Okla. -native, will be returning to his home racetrack on Friday night at Salina Highbanks, as the series returns to the track located in northeast Oklahoma for the fifth time in six years.

Another Oklahoma native is 2013 World of Outlaws champion Daryn Pittman. Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla., has never won at his home track in series action, but has scored two third-place finishes in 2014 and 2012, and has never finished outside the top seven.

Overnight Delivery

Following action at Salina Highbanks, the the series will travel 350 miles overnight into The Show Me State, where the Outlaws will return to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the 20th consecutive year, and 26th time since 1987.

In 2015, current NASCAR driver Christopher Bell captured the checkered flag at the Spring Classic after fighting with Jason Sides and Sammy Swindell for much of the feature, then holding them off late for the thrilling victory.

No Place Like Home

Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender Clyde Knipp has rejoined the Outlaws after he missed most of the first of the season due to school. Knipp, a California, Mo. -native, will be competing at his home track with the Outlaws for the first time ever after a tough finish at I-30 Speedway, in which the rookie ended his night in the Last Chance Showdown after flipping multiple times.

Knipp is the only Outlaws regular who will be at home in the state of Missouri, but Hunter Scheurenberg (Sikeston) and Joe B. Miller (Millersville) are also from The Show Me State and competed with the Outlaws at I-30 Speedway.

Sides Scores Home Track Victory at I-30 Speedway

Captures first victory of the season in front of hometown crowd

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - April 26, 2016 - With friends and family standing next to him in victory lane, Jason Sides exited his car after scoring the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win on Tuesday night at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark.

The victory, his first since night one of the Boothill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park in July 2015, was especially memorable for Sides, who is just over a two hour drive from his hometown of Bartlett, Tenn.

"I am glad everyone made it over from the Memphis, Tenn. area," Sides said. "I guess Pevely (Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55) is the next closest to home, but this is our home track now and I just appreciate everybody coming out on a Tuesday night."

In the closing laps of the 40-lap feature, Sides had to hold off a late race charge from the Big Game Tree Stands/Nyce Crete & Landis No. 5 of David Gravel, who had overcame a deficit of over a second to get to Sides' back bumper. Gravel, who tried a last lap dive bomb for the lead, came up just short and settled for a second-place finish.

"I thought we had something for him," Gravel said. "A couple more laps with those lapped cars and we maybe could've gotten him. But we will take a second, it was a good run for us and we will see what happens in the future.

"We were just trying to do some things different. Sometimes people get too tentative and just run around the bottom, so you just got to keep your momentum up and keep your wing speed up."

Added third place finisher Daryn Pittman on Sides' home track victory:

"I was probably Jason's biggest fan there the last four laps cheering him on. I knew this would be a pretty big win for him, obviously being from close to here, and one of his home tracks. Pretty cool to see him win in front of all the people he has here - his friends and family."

To start the night, Gravel's CJB Motorsports teammate and World of Outlaws champion, Sammy Swindell, set quick-time at the track he has won at three times in series action: twice in 1981 and again in 1992.

Swindell continued his early-night dominance as he led every lap of his heat race and easily earned a spot in the dash.

The invert draw proved to be unlucky for Swindell, as he had to start at the rear of the six-car field following an invert of six. To make matters worse, Swindell eventually lost a motor on the opening laps of the eight-lap dash, and had to take his car to the pits where his team hastily started replacing the motor for the feature.

Oklahoma driver, Brady Bacon, won the dash, which gave him the best view of the green flag for the feature. Unfortunately for Bacon, he lost the lead to the King Racing Products/East Coast Logistics No. 7S of Sides on the opening lap, as the second-place starter easily rocketed to the top spot.

Sides dominated the feature as he led all 40 laps, the victory did not come easy for the 43-year-old driver. Multiple cautions early in the feature never allowed the leader to build up a lead, but also kept Sides from encountering heavy lapped traffic at the 1/4-mile track.

Sides held off challenges from Bacon on the early restarts, then had to fight off challenges from Pittman in the No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit car, who had started third and stayed glued to the front of the field all race long.

Pittman eventually lost the runner-up position to Gravel on a late-race restart, as Gravel jumped from fifth to second in one lap.

"The caution flags hurt and helped, I hated the restarts but it kept us out of lapped traffic," Sides said. "I didn't know [David Gravel] was out there in the closing laps. I saw Daryn [Pittman] on the restarts but I never knew that [David] Gravel got by him on the restart.

"That's good for him, but I am just happy we got the win here. It's as close as we get to home, and I love this place!"

Gravel tried everything he could to rattle Sides for the lead, but Sides held firm at the front of the field, as Gravel settled for second, his first podium finish since Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on April 15.

"You can't complain with second," Gravel said. "We had a really good car there early, it got tight and scared me a little bit, but I got a few more laps under me and got more confident.

"We got a little free in one and two on those last three laps. We had something there but came up just a little bit short. It really would've been good to get a win there. My buddy Tyler back home got in a real bad car accident and he's still in a coma, so we were trying to get a win here for him but we will get one soon."

Pittman continued his recent podium domination, as he picked up his fourth top-three finish in the last four races.

"It was a good race, we kept making gains on our car all night," Pittman said. "This is a track I have never had a lot of success at, so we were able to run up front and contend for the win.

"That last restart we kind of got pinched on the bottom and just didn't get a good start and got beat, and then [David] Gravel got by us. The car just went away on us a little bit at the end, but all-in-all a great night for our Great Clips team. We will take third and go on to Friday. [Salina Highbanks Speedway] is a really cool track and one that I look forward to going to and hopefully we will be able to improve a few spots there."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series make their annual return to north eastern Oklahoma, as they travel to Salina Highbanks Speedway on Friday, April 29. For ticket purchasing options and event information visit www.WoOSprint.com/Salina-Highbanks-Speedway.

Stewart Earns Emotional Texas Outlaw Nationals Victory

Captures Ted Johnson Memorial trophy at Devil's Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas - April 23, 2016 - An emotional Shane Stewart climbed from his car and wiped away tears of joy after he fought his way to the front of the field and claimed Saturday night's Texas Outlaw Nationals $20,000 to-win finale at Devil's Bowl Speedway, his second World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Stewart is just the third driver to chisel his name into the Ted Johnson Memorial trophy, after Daryn Pittman claimed the inaugural event in 2014 and Donny Schatz won in 2015.

"I'm a little choked up, this is a big win for me," Stewart said. "A lot of people have helped me get to this point. I drove for a lot of good car owners, like my mom and dad who are here.

"It's been a long road to get here that's for sure, and some days you don't think you're ever going to get here but when you finally do it makes it really special. There were plenty of times I thought "this is it, I am going to have to get a regular job" but people kept believing in me and giving me opportunities - [team owners] Justin [Marks] and Kyle [Larson] are a great example of that."

Stewart's victory was not due to a lack of competition, as the Bixby, Okla. -native fought his way around Pittman, who owned the top spot for much of the night after leading the opening 23 laps, then held off Joey Saldana for the victory.

"This year we are believing in each other and doing a good job," Saldana said. "Dennis [Roth] is providing us with all the great equipment we need to compete at a high level and that is showing out here on the racetrack, so hopefully we can continue this and keep the Roth family happy."

To start the night, Jason Sides captured the quick-time award, which is his first of the season, then won his heat race to qualify for the dash. Unfortunately for Sides, the dash invert hurt his chances, as he had to start the six-lap race in the sixth position and never returned to the front of the field.

The winner of the dash and first place starter went to Jason Johnson, who started third Friday night and finished fifth. Unfortunately for the Eunice, La. -native, he never led a lap in the 30-lap feature, as Pittman, who started second, rocketed around him for the lead on the opening lap.

Pittman, in the No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit car, appeared to have control over the top spot, much the same way he did Friday night, as he easily pulled away from second place Joey Saldana, who had worked his way up from the fourth position.

Early in the feature Pittman and Saldana stayed nose-to-tail, but it wasn't until a spree of late race cautions that Stewart would enter the picture in his American Born Moonshine/Eneos Oil No. 2.

Stewart started the feature in the third position and lurked in the top-five the entire race, biding his time and waiting for a chance to challenge the leaders.

That chance came following a red flag with six laps to go.

Stewart worked his way around Saldana on the ensuing restart, then set his sights on the Pittman who was leading. Stewart got by Pittman for the lead just before the race-long leader suffered a flat left rear tire, which all but ended his chances of claiming the win.

Stewart held off challenges from both Saldana in the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock No. 83 and Kerry Madsen in the Keneric Healthcare/American Racing Wheels No. 29 in the final few laps to capture the victory, one that he was able to share with his family, who was present for the race.

"Restarting on the outside just saved me," Stewart said. "I'll humbly accept this win - we didn't have the best car tonight. We didn't have anything for Daryn [Pittman], and you never want to see a competitor go out with a flat tire, but we were just in the right place at the right time and took full advantage of it."

Saldana, winner of Friday night's feature at Devil's Bowl, finished the runner-up position after again contending for the win, but just coming up one spot short of sweeping the weekend.

"On that last double-file restart, Pittman had a flat tire and you know that tire is going to go down and have an issue," Saldana said. "I ran my car too safe there and got snookered there by Shane [Stewart] and got tight.

"Definitely felt like I had a second place car. I was right there with Daryn [Pittman] on that restart, and you hate losing races on restarts - I lost one last week at Bakersfield Speedway...I have got to get better at that if I am going to win these races like this."

Madsen managed a third place finish after he started the feature in the 10th position and charging his way to the front of the field.

"The car was great," Madsen said. "I had a great time coming from mid-pack to the podium. The track was fantastic and the car was great, my guys did a great job.

"I have two good race cars and I keep letting the guys down. Hopefully, if we continue to get this thing up front, people put so much into this team, and the team deserves better than what I am giving them at the moment."

Saldana Outduels Pittman for Texas Outlaw Nationals Victory

Captures lead with two laps to go to win opening night at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Texas - April 22, 2016 - Joey Saldana charged from his fifth starting position to rocket around a red-hot Daryn Pittman with just two laps remaining to claim the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway on Friday night.

Saldana returned to victory lane for the first time since the opening night at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 3.

"We've had a really good car this year, but the driver's made a lot of mistakes," Saldana said. "Tonight everything hit on all cylinders and it was just an awesome night...I can't thank Dennis and Teresa Roth enough for this opportunity.

"It was just a great effort by everybody tonight, they worked really hard and I am proud of what we have done tonight. It shows that we should have done more of this but I have got to do a better job, and tonight I feel like I did a pretty good job."

Pittman, after leading the majority of the 25-lap feature, settled for a second-place finish, the seventh time he has finished in the runner-up position this season.

"We were sniffing three in-a-row, but just got beat at the end of the race," Pittman said. "I got in traffic and got tighter as the race went on and I guess I was just kind of afraid to try a different line.

"I wasn't really close enough to a lapped car to try the bottom and so I just got tight behind a lapped car there and got rolled up and Joey [Saldana] drove by us on the bottom in one and two. I don't know if he was running down there the whole time, but he stayed down there the rest of the race."

To start the night, Sam Haftertepe Jr. in the Wells Engines/Highway 79 Collision Center No. 15H, looked to have the car to beat as he paced qualifying and captured the win in his heat to gain admittance to the dash. Hafertepe started on the pole-position for the six-lap dash after drawing a zero for the invert.

The Texas native continued his early night dominance, as he rolled to the victory in the dash after leading every lap and holding off a challenge from Kerry Madsen.

Once the green flag fell to start the feature event, Madsen, in the Keneric Healthcare/American Racing Wheels No. 29, accomplished what he could not do in the dash, and made his way around Haftertepe to claim the top spot.

Madsen's grip on the top spot was short lived and slipped away following an early race caution that allowed Pittman, who started the race in the third position and worked his way into second, to restart next to the leader and eventually complete the pass for the lead on lap nine.

As the race reached the latter portions, it appeared Pittman was staring at a three-peat after winning the SoCal Showdown at Perris Auto Speedway and the NAPA Wildcat Showdown at USA Raceway.

Pittman led a race-high 13 laps but Saldana, in the No. 83 Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock car, continued to lurk behind the leader. Saldana never allowed the leader to escape his grasps, even as the leaders reached the tail end of the field and started lapping slower cars.

With just a handful of laps remaining, Saldana closed on the leader. With just two laps remaining, the "Brownsburg Bullet" completed the pass on Pittman for the top spot.

Saldana pulled away from Pittman and third-place finisher Brad Sweet to claim the victory on the opening night of the Texas Outlaws Nationals at the historic Devil's Bowl Speedway.

"I moved around a little bit through the top and the middle and I could see Daryn [Pittman] was staying on the bottom and then moved to the top," Saldana said. "For some reason I decided to run the bottom through three and four and I caught some ground on him, so I knew if we got to lapped traffic I could use that. It just worked out, it was a great race, and the fans saw a great race - a lot of different lead changes with people moving all over the place."

Even though Pittman didn't capture the victory, he was still excited to continue their recent momentum and looks forward to tomorrow's race at Devil's Bowl.

"We just got beat, nothing to be disappointed about, we had a great race car," Pittman said. "We were up front tonight and that's all you can ask for. We will come back tomorrow night and try again and try to improve one spot."

Picking up his series leading 16th top-five of the season, Sweet in the Razorback Professional Tools/Riebes Auto Parts No. 49 managed to charge his way from the 11th starting position to score a podium finish.

"My guys have given me great race cars all year and we seem to shine in the A-mains," Sweet said. "These are the nights we need to have, big picture-wise, coming from 11th to third.

"We were really coming on strong there, but it was a short race - 25 laps went by really quick. We got caught in lapped traffic and were able to maneuver around a little bit. We got to get the car better for tomorrow night, big money is on the line and a few more laps."

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series will resume action tomorrow night for round two of the Texas Outlaw Nationals double-header at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas. Great seats are still available, and can be purchased at the track box office.

At A Glance: Outlaws Return to Their Roots

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series heads to historic Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas for the Texas Outlaw Nationals double-header on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23

CONCORD, N.C. - April 21, 2016 - The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series will cross out of the Pacific time zone for the first time since early March, as the series treks east to historical Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas for the Texas Outlaw Nationals this weekend.

Devil's Bowl has a special place in the history of the World of Outlaws. The 1/2-mile track, located just 20 miles from Dallas, Texas, was the site of the first ever World of Outlaws race on March 18, 1978, after former racer, Ted Johnson, organized a group of sprint car drivers to form a national touring series.

The Outlaws again invade its birthplace on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23 for a two-night showdown with racing legend and Indianapolis 500 winner Johnny Rutherford on hand as the Grand Marshal on Saturday. Star of the hit Discovery Channel show "Moonshiners", Tyler Wood, will also be on hand throughout the weekend.

In 2015, Donny Schatz captured the victory on night two. Schatz, who is tied with points-leader Brad Sweet with most wins so far this season at five apiece, also scored a victory at Devil's Bowl in 2014 along with Sweet's teammate Daryn Pittman.

Schatz, Pittman and Sweet each value their annual trip to the historic track, and look forward to this weekend's double-header:

Daryn Pittman, No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit, Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb

What does it mean to you as a driver and for the series as a whole to return to such a historical track?

"It's cool to go back to the place where it all started. Lanny [Edwards, the track owner] has been really good to me in my career, and he's personally helped me out when I had my own team and sponsored me with Devil's Bowl and Chili Bowl, when he knew we were just trying to get our name out here. I also like going to Devil's Bowl because I am from pretty close to there - Tulsa - and grew up racing there a lot, and won the first time back in 2013, so that was pretty special too."

After capturing your first win of the season earlier this year in the state of Texas, then winning back-to-back events within the last week, what will it take to carry the momentum into this weekend?

"I felt like we have had momentum all year. We have taken ourselves out of some races and had some finishes that were a little uncharacteristic of our team. But we have been fast and consistent, we just have to keep putting it together. We haven't been struggling at all for speed or any of that - we have been fast everywhere we go."

Donny Schatz, No. 15 Bad Boy/Chevrolet Performance, Tony Stewart Racing

What does it mean to you as a driver and for the series as a whole to return to such a historical track?

"It's an incredible place. We have the luxury of going to a lot of great dirt tracks across the country, but pulling into the gate, with all the history and heritage that's happened there back in the day, and even today, with Lanny Edwards still operating Devil's Bowl. Things stick out in your mind about Lanny - he's a wild operator some days. But the history and heritage is something that's heartfelt and hard to explain to anybody."

After winning at Devil's bowl in both 2014 and 2015, what does it take to be consistently at the front there?

" I don't know if you can say we have been consistent. We had a long absence from Devil's Bowl, so I am excited to be going back there again, it's a place that has a lot of history: the first World of Outlaws race and hometown of Ted Johnson. Those are the sort of things that stick out in your mind when you go there. Getting the win was great, I've missed racing there, so you when you go back to a place your miss, it seems like you always run well there, so we're looking forward to going back."

Brad Sweet, No. 49 Razorback Professional Tools/Riebes Auto Parts, Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb

What does it mean to you as a driver and for the series as a whole to return to such a historical track?

"For me, I am a little younger so I wasn't around when the Outlaws started. It's obviously a very prestigious track being the place the Outlaws started. I always heard about some of the shows that Steve [Kinser], Sammy [Swindell], Doug Wolfgang and all those older guys had, so the fact that we get to go back there and keep the series going there after all these years is pretty awesome. It's a historical racetrack so anytime you can win there and put your name on that list of winners is an honor."

How excited are you to return to the Lone Star State after capturing a victory earlier this season at Cotton Bowl Speedway?

"We've just been really good this year, so right now we're excited to go to all of the racetracks. Devil's Bowl hasn't been one of my best tracks, I think my best finish there in a couple of years is fifth or sixth, but I think with this year our car has been a little faster, so we're excited to get back into Texas. After Texas, that leads us into the midpoint of the season, the prime months that can make or break you for sure."

Racing Legend Johnny Rutherford Named Texas Outlaw Nationals Grand Marshal

Joins Moonshiners star Tyler Wood as the Outlaws and Legends headlining the annual event at Devil’s Bowl Speedway

MESQUITE, Tex. - April 20, 2016 - Three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Johnny Rutherford has been named the Grand Marshal for the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23.

The Texan, nicknamed 'Lonestar JR,' is a Hall of Fame racer with experience that crosses the vast landscape of motorsports. In addition to winning the 500 in 1974, 1976 and 1980, Rutherford is a past USAC National Sprint Car Champion, IndyCar Series champion and winner at NASCAR's highest level.

"Since the first Texas Outlaw Nationals in 2014, we have been fortunate every year to bring together some of the biggest legends in motorsports," said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. "To have the opportunity to salute the great Johnny Rutherford at this marquee event for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series is thrilling. His experience and success spanned the decades and made him one of the greatest drivers to ever climb behind the wheel of a racecar."

Rutherford will be on hand on Saturday, April 23 to greet fans and sign autographs.

Joining Rutherford as a headliner for the weekend's events at Devil's Bowl is Tyler Wood, a star of the hit Discovery Channel television show, " Moonshiners." Wood will sign autographs, serve as an honorary starter and sing the national anthem both nights.

"There's gonna be two different breeds of Outlaws crossing paths in Mesquite, Texas," Wood said.

The legend and the Outlaw join the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at the historic Devil's Speedway, birthplace of the World of Outlaws, on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23. Two days of wheel-to-wheel racing leads into Saturday's $20,000-to-win feature. The USA Limited Modifieds will compete with the Outlaws both nights.

Daryn Pittman Perseveres to Score Perris Win

Joey Saldana finishes third with pass on last turn of last lap

PERRIS, Calif. - April 16, 2016 - Daryn Pittman dominated Saturday night's SoCal Showdown at Perris Auto Speedway to claim his second World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory of the season. The win came one night after a crash ended his night while he led at Bakersfield Speedway.

"Last night was dumb," Pittman said of his Bakersfield Speedway run. "I ran over Joey [Saldana] and took ourselves out of contention for a win there and tore up a lot of equipment."

Pittman, who claimed his first ever series win at Perris, said perseverance is the motto of his No. 9 Great Clips team.

"This car has been so fast and we're right there in the hunt every night," Pittman said. "We've just got to put it together and that starts with me.

"This track has been really good to me and I got my very first Outlaw win here beating Steve Kinser to the line by I don't know how close - it was really close. It's one I'll never forget so I always enjoy coming here."

Pittman, who led the feature flag-to-flag, had to contend much of the night with traffic and perhaps more pressing, his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb teammate Brad Sweet behind him.

The all KKR front row, was in charge early, as Pittman took the lead on the first lap. As he worked his way through lappd traffic, he built up an impressive multi-second lead over Sweet and Shane Stewart.

Sweet held firm in second as Stewart worked to close the gap on the second place position. The two were within a car length of each other much of the night.

With one lap to go, Pittman made contact with Paul McMahan that sent McMahan spinning. The caution flag waved. Pittman later apologized to McMahan in victory lane.

The reset field, with a green-white-checkered finish ahead, looked for one last chance to make a move.

Stewart, looking for the second position, made a bold charge on Sweet through one and two but was not able to get around the No. 49 Razorback Professional Tools car. The move opened the door for fourth-place running Saldana to close the gap with his No. 83 Roth Motorsports car.

"I think Brad had his tires going down a little and Shane had a good racecar so he was trying really hard to get by him and he just used his tires up there or had his tires going down there and missed the rubber going into three," Saldana said. "That was the only shot I had so I went for it and luckily we were on the front straightaway."

Saldana completed the pass on the final lap coming off of turn four.

Pittman claimed his second series win of the season - the first driver not named Schatz or Pittman to score a repeat win - and Sweet picked up his tenth podium finish of the season.

"We're running up front every night and it's just a good team effort," Sweet said. "We've got momentum on our side and a little bit of luck here and there but the car has been really fast… We're happy for Daryn and his team. It's a KKR 1-2. You can't beat that."

Sweet Scores Five On Late Race Pass at Bakersfield

Red flags and flared tempers color series return after 11-year absence

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - April 15, 2016 - Brad Sweet claimed his fifth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory of the season through red flags and flared tempers at Bakersfield Speedway on Friday night.

Sweet, who passed Joey Saldana on a late restart in the Budweiser Bash feature, tied Donny Schatz for the most wins on the season.

"It seemed like every time the race started getting good the caution came out," Sweet said. "The track was getting really really tricky but in great racing shape… It's awesome. We got a great start to the season, my guys behind me have given me great cars all throughout the year. Can't thank them enough. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going."

Daryn Pittman, who was forced to change an engine earlier in the night, led the field to the green flag as the Outlaws returned to Bakersfield for the first time since 2005. Jason Johnson battled early for the lead but Saldana charged forward.

By lap nine, Pittman worked his way through traffic as Saldana closed the gap and began to challenge for the top spot. As the two drivers completed the next lap, Saldana pulled side-by-side with Pittman in his No. 83 Roth Motorsports car off of turn two, down the back straight and into turns three and four. Pittman took on the high side as Saldana stayed wheel-to-wheel with Pittman through the middle. In the middle of three, Saldana and Pittman made contact sending Pittman into the cushion which caused Pittman's car to tumble into the turn four catch fence.

"Obviously my right rear hit his front end," Saldana said of the contact with Pittman. "I didn't see him at all. I got the lead there and the 98 car was going to the bottom and he turned right in front of me so I was sliding back to the cushion. (Pittman) must have tried to get a run on the outside and my right rear hit him. I hate it for him, it was a good race."

With Pittman's night ended, Saldana took over the lead. Saldana pulled away while Jason Johnson and Sweet battled for the second position.

As the field worked to complete lap 18 D.J. Netto and Terry McCarl made contact into turn one and both flipped. McCarl's car came to a rest on its wing at the top of the track exit ramp in turn one. Netto's car was upside down in turn one. McCarl, visibly frustrated by the crash exited his car and sought to confront Netto. McCarl did not however get the chance as the scene was cleared and he headed to the pits.

The fireworks were not yet over.

The battle up front continued when the feature returned to green. Saldana maintained the lead as Sweet took over the second position in his No. 49 Razorback Professional Tools car from Johnson.

The final caution of the night fell on lap 28 as Jacob Allen got turned around in the middle of turns three and four. The first restart attempt was called back by series officials after a jumbled start by the front row and the field was reset for a second attempt. When the green flag did fall, Sweet battled past Saldana on the exit of turn two and took over the lead.

"Getting into lapped traffic was pretty dicey there," Saldana said. "We had a good car there all night. I'm kind of confused why they called back that first restart and then made us go again. (The 49 team is) smart and (Brad) knew where he had to go to hold me down, down into one."

Sweet said a lot of the night was about staying out of trouble.

"Those restarts are tough," Sweet said. "We're so wide, we were just trying to time when Joey was going to takeoff and luckily we came out side-by-side and I was able to beat him into one and hold him off there. Once I got to clean air, the Razorback car was really good."

With Johnson slipping back, David Gravel and Shane Stewart battled for the final podium position. Gravel had the advantage in his No. 5 Big Game Treestands Car and made sure to keep Stewart behind. Several laps of fierce back-and-forth competition pushed passions high. As Sweet won the feature with Saldana close behind, Stewart, unhappy with the way Gravel ran the remaining laps, got behind Gravel and tapped his rear bumper bar. Gravel finished the night in third.

"It just looked like the outside ended up being faster there at the end," Gravel said. "Brad and me were rolling pretty good on the bottom and it just seemed like the bottom gave up and the top was the place to be and that's where I restarted. It was a great run."

Sweet's win also gave his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team its ninth podium finish of the season, the most of any driver.

Donny Schatz was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing 12 positions to finish in fifth.

At A Glance: Netto Heads Home after Heartbreak

The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series travels to Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on April 15, Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway on April 16 and USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz. on April 18

CONCORD, N.C. - April 12, 2016 - The last time Hanford, California's DJ Netto competed in a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series race he dominated the Mini Gold Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway on April 2, as he led 31 of the 40 laps, but ran out of fuel a handful of laps before the checkered flag fell.

"It definitely was a heartbreak for the team," said Netto, who sits 20th in the standings while only running a limited schedule. "It's nothing to get down about, we definitely had speed all night. As soon as we unloaded, from the hot laps until the end, we were fast. We got out front early and I didn't want to try to do too much that night and push it too hard and make a mistake myself.

"We're not sure what exactly happened with the fuel issue, we are still looking into it. We should've been fine but we aren't sure - things happen. We're all still kind of jazzed about it, it was a great run for the whole team."

Fast forward two weeks, as the series prepares to wrap up the California portion of the Western swing, Netto has his sights set on redemption at Bakersfield Speedway, a track located just over an hour drive on Highway 99 from his hometown.

"We were using [the race at Silver Dollar] as momentum going into last weekend at Calistoga, but Mother Nature had other plans for us," Netto said. "Bakersfield, I have never been there, but its dirt and we should be able to make something happen.

"The main key is time-trialing in. You time-trial in and it sets you up for a very smooth night, as long as you make it through your heat race. Our goal is to time-trial in well this weekend and let our night begin from there."

Following action Friday night at Bakersfield, the series will voyage 180 miles south to Perris Auto Speedway for the SoCal Showdown on Saturday night April 16.

The race in Perris will be the final California Outlaws race until the series returns to Chico for the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway on Sept. 9 and 10.

After a day for travel on Sunday, the Outlaws will return to Arizona when they invade Tucson's USA Raceway for the NAPA Wildcat Shootout on Monday, April 18.

USA Raceway has held an Outlaws race five times in the last 10 years, including each of the last three seasons. In those five events, no driver has ever repeated as winner at the track.

As for Netto, he's looking forward to the season ahead.

"Bakersfield will be our last one [with the Outlaws] for now," Netto said. "The plan is we are going to start off running the King of the West out here and see how that goes. If we are doing well, we will probably stay with it. If we start off with a rocky start and have a couple of things happen that are out of our control, and we aren't there as far as points wise, then we may take off and head to the Midwest.

"We are definitely going to come for the Knoxville Nationals. We are trying to figure some things out with my uncle, who owns the team - his daughter is getting married. So we are trying to figure out a way that we can race our way back with the Outlaws through Washington, and get back for the Gold Cup [at Silver Dollar Speedway]."

Tickets remain for the Budweiser Bash at Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on Friday, April 15, SoCal Showdown at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway on Saturday, April 16 and NAPA Wildcat Shootout at USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz. on Monday, April 18, and are available by calling 844-DIRT-TIX (347-8849), or by visiting WorldofOutlaws.com/Tickets.

At A Glance: Sharks Stalking ‘Stoga

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series heads to Calistoga Speedway for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown double-header on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10

CONCORD, N.C. - April 6, 2016 - As the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series continues its trek through California, the series will make its annual stop at Calistoga Speedway for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.

Heading into last weekend's action at Ocean Speedway and Silver Dollar Speedway, the Shark Racing teammates of Jacob Allen and Logan Schuchart had not recorded a top-five yet this season.

That stat changed when both drivers secured the first ever two-three finish for Shark Racing at Ocean Speedway on Friday night, including a career-best third for Allen and a second-place finish for Schuchart.

Allen's third-place finish is his first ever World of Outlaws top five and his fourth top 10 so far in his short career. Allen captured two top-10 finishes last season and one in his first season in 2014.

"[The finish] means a lot to me, being my best finish with the Outlaws," Allen said. "Any time, whether it's with the Outlaws or just racing, everybody always talks about going one-two with Logan and that kind of thing.

"It's surreal how it all played out - being on the front row and having Kasey Kahne Racing behind us. It's just great for our team, family, sponsors and everyone that helps us out. It was something that was a lot of fun and I'm really thankful for and won't ever forget."

Schuchart's runner-up finish is the second time he has finished second, with his first being at Thunderbowl Raceway in 2014. Schuchart had 11 top-fives and 45 top-10s heading into the 2016 season, in which he has already accumulated one top-five and five top-10s.

"Anytime you get to run in the top-five and race for the lead, it's good for the team," Schuchart said. "To have both cars starting on the front row is a pretty cool honor for our organization, everyone involved and everyone back home watching - our family, sponsors and friends.

"It's cool for Jacob and I to be up here racing. It's hard to be out here [competing with the Outlaws]. We didn't know if we were going to be able to do it the first year, but here we are in the third year and to be able to see the improvements year after year, every time we hit the track, is awesome. We are very thankful to be out here."

The California stretch has been especially nice for Schuchart, who has earned three of his five top-10s this season since the series hit the Golden State on March 11, with his worst finish in that stretch being two 16th place finishes.

Allen has had mixed results over the last month. Allen started off the California stretch missing the feature at Thunderbowl Raceway on March 12, but has since made every race and won the dash at Ocean.

With less than three full seasons under their belts, Shark Racing has catapulted from an up-and-coming organization to a weekly competitor that can capture their first World of Outlaws win at any event.

"If you get your car right and get the driver feeling comfortable, the wins are going to come," Schuchart said. "Even though we ran second [at Ocean Speedway], I feel like we have a lot of room for improvement.

"If we get the car right and I make the right decisions as a driver, then the wins will come. It's just a learning experience and getting better every time I hit the race track."

Allen, taking a more critical stance on himself, also feels like Shark Racing has the ability to score their first win as a team, and hopes it occurs sooner rather than later.

"[At Ocean] I thought I had a good shot at getting our first win," Allen said. "We had a good shot at it, and I don't know how often those opportunities come around. I hope they come around a lot more often for us.

"I think with some better restarts from myself and fix a couple of little mistakes I made, I could've won at Ocean. It's going to take one of those moments again, and when you get it, you have to be able to take it and excel in it and make things happen."

Tickets remain for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown at Calistoga Speedway and are available by calling 844-DIRT-TIX (347-8849), or by visiting WorldofOutlaws.com/Tickets.com. Watch both nights of the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown live on DIRTVision.com pay-per-view.
