Great Clips Racing With Second Victory of the Season in World of Outlaws Series
Daryn Pittman scored his second victory of the year on March 29, 2015 at Antioch Speedway in Antioch, Calif. He is just the third different driver - joining Rico Abreu and Donny Schatz - to score more than one win so far this season. "This is for my crew - this Great Clips team is just incredible," Pittman said in victory lane. "You know how good of a race team you're part of when… you go to race tracks that aren't part of my forte and places I don't normally excel at and they continuously give me cars that are capable of going out and winning with." The No. 9 Great Clips team had a fifth-place finish the previous night and Friday night’s event was cancelled due to rain. Pittman is currently fifth in the championship points battle, just 27 points out of the lead. Full story can be found here.
