Pittman came into this weekend 3rd in the points standings and was optimistic about his chances to gain some points at 2 bullrings. At Attica it did not look promising when he would qualify in the 26th position and have to start 7th in his heat. He would make the necessary adjustments however and climb to 6th in his heat. The "B" main would see the Owasso, OK native would start deep in the field but would use the high line to gain spots and get into 4th place and transfer to the feature. Starting 23rd in the feature he would once again use all of the race track to pass cars and gain positions. When the dust had settled he had finished 9th after passing more cars than any other driver.

At Haubstadt he would qualify 24th fastest and start 6th in his heat and finish 6th. In a very exciting "B" main, Pittman would be in the transfer position when a spinning car would rearrange the field and move him back from 4th the final transfer position to 5th. Pittman would be forced to use a provisional to start in 25th position in the feature. He would climb 12 positions to finish 12th and remain 3rd in the points.

"Not the weekend we had hoped for but we will just go on." Said Pittman. "We were just a bit off a bit both nights but we had a top ten finish and we were moving forward at Haubstadt. There were just a lot of cars to pass. Just regroup and head to Knoxville and see if we can't get this Titan Garages #21 into victory lane again."
