McMahan to Return to Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series
By Richard Day BRISTOL, IN (January 4) -- Paul McMahan, the runner-up in the World of Outlaws Gumout Series standings in 2000, will race with the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series this season. "We're excited to be back," McMahan said Thursday. "Growing up, all I wanted to do was race with the Outlaws. Warren Johnson has given me the opportunity. He has given me great race cars and Mike Cool, who is a great mechanic. We had a good season last year with the Gumout Series, and we're looking forward to racing with the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series this year." McMahan ranked second behind Donny Schatz in the 1997 Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series Rookie of the Year race and finished 13th in the overall point standings. Last season, the transplanted Californian drove Johnson's #U2 United Expressline Eagle to victory in three of four September features to pass Jeff Shepard for second place in the Gumout Series standings. Craig Dollansky won the inaugural Gumout Series championship. "Warren always wanted to race with the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series," McMahan said. "We weren't prepared to do the whole tour last year, so we built some confidence racing with the Gumout Series. That helped us get ready for the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. "We still have Eagle Chassis and Gaerte Engines and the same sponsors. Everything is the same; we just have more of it now."
