Daryn Pittman Holds off Paul McMahan to Score Victory at Antioch
This was the second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the year for Pittman
ANTIOCH, Calif. - March 29, 2015 - Through Sunday night's 30 lap World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature at Antioch Speedway, Paul McMahan tried everything he could think of to get around leader Daryn Pittman.

"This is for my crew - this Great Clips team is just incredible," Pittman said. "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."
