Daryn Pittman wins World of Outlaws New Egypt NJ 5/19/15 by Steve Koletar

Say What!

“The cautions fell right for me. The car was awesome on the bottom. The track took a little rubber there at the end and thankfully I found it. There’s just something about this track that suits my driving style,” said McFadden beside his Gaerte Engines, XYZ Machining, Red Line Oil, All Star Performance backed #3G. James McFadden winning Fremont OH All Stars

“I just want to thank everyone who made this race possible,From the Folkens Brothers to all the sponsors who made this such a big event, we’re just really thankful. There wasn’t much I could do out there in the lead. I knew the rubber was going to come, but I didn’t know when. Bill got by me there, but I could see he was smoking his tire pretty bad. The only chance I had was to kind of save my tire…Bill is such a good driver. We got lucky when his tire went down. Terry McCarl in Jackson MN victory lane
