World of Outlaws Gives Young Fan Special Welcome By Richard Day SARVER, PA (May 21) - Young Jason Pitkavish was excited just to be attending the World of Outlaws event at Lernerville Speedway Tuesday. But what the six-year-old racing fan experienced when he arrived at Don Martin's semi-banked, 1/2-mile oval is something he'll cherish the rest of his life. Jason, whose great-grandfather "Blackie" Watt raced in western Pennsylvania years ago, is afflicted with a rare blood disease that affects one in two million people. So when Jason arrived at the track after the Vivarin Dash, he was carried to the front straightaway where he was greeted by Stevie Smith, Danny Lasoski, Andy Hillenburg, Sammy Swindell, Mark Kinser, Steve Kinser, Ed Lynch, Jr., and Billy Pauch - the drivers who competed in the five-lap race. One-by-one, the drivers approached Jason, who sat on the right rear tire of the #71M EcoWater Systems Maxim, and presented him with autographed caps, T-shirts and photographs. God bless you, Jason. The World of Outlaws and Lernerville Speedway wish you the very best. WoO
