Daryn Pittman and Titan Racing, USA are Ready for Volusia Speedway Park

Barberville, FL--Daryn Pittman and the Titan Racing, USA Team returned from "Down Under" last week and are now prepared to take on the World of Outlaws at Volusia Speedway Park. Pittman and crew have loaded up the hauler with fresh equipment to begin their 2005 quest on American soil. The Titan team, owned by the flamboyant Australian businessman Reeve Kruck and based out of Brownsburg, IN, marks the first Australian-owned sprint car team to compete for the World of Outlaws Championship. "Reeve is a successful businessman who just loves to race. He has given me a great opportunity and we are going to make the most of it," said Pittman.

When asked about the upcoming WoO season Pittman said, "I can wait to get started. I feel really good about our team this year and I think we have what it takes to win races," said Pittman. "Reeve has put everything in place to build a successful team. He has spared no expense in equipment and given me a great team to work with. Glenno Inglis is staying on as my crew chief and we have hired Richie Wagner to help us out too," said Pittman. "I know we are going to win races this year and I'm looking forward to building on what we have going here."

Pittman is no stranger to winning in a Kruck-owned machine as they won the 2002-03 World Series Sprint Car Championship. Not surprising, Daryn is coming off a streak off solid runs put together racing in Australia. They were victorious in three of the 17 A Mains the team competed in, and finished no worse than fourth in 8 different events. The three wins came at Parramatta City Raceway, Brisbane International Speedway and Charlton Raceway Toowoomba bringing the Kruck/Pittman victory total to 17 in the last four seasons. "We had a decent showing in Australia. I was a little disappointed because there were a few races that got away from us that I felt we should have won. We finished second three times and crashed out of a few more," he explained. "All in all it was pretty good and we had a lot of fun. I like racing over there and I think it helps to keep me sharp over the off-season," said Pittman.

The 2005 World of Outlaws seasons resumes Friday night at Volusia for a two-night show. "I'm ready for it to get started. Once we get going it will be pretty much non-stop until November. It is a long haul but I love it," said Pittman. To follow the progress of Daryn and the Titan Racing, USA Team log on to www.darynpittman.com for continued news and results.
