MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Daryn Pittman is on the move.

The 2013 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion will move to Roth Motorsports next season, driving the famed No. 83 entry.

“We are extremely pleased to have a talented driver like Daryn Pittman in our stable in 2019,” team owner Dennis Roth said. “We are going to be out on the road full time in 2019 and I think we will have a very successful season. Thank you to everyone who continues to support Roth Motorsports.”

Pittman is no stranger to the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series schedule as he has spent the last six years piloting the Kasey Kahne Racing No. 9 entry on the tour, a stint that included the 2013 series championship as well as 47 victories as he currently sits 10th on the series’ all-time wins list with 81 triumphs.

Pittman got his first shot at the road back in 1999 and as a youngster he was able to pick up some prestigious wins including the King’s Royal (2008), the Historical Big One (2003), the Gold Cup Race of Champions (2006), and the Summer Nationals (2006) to name a few.

In between his travels, the 40-year old from Owasso, Okla., made a cameo in Pennsylvania where he would be adopted by the PA Posse. Competing aboard the Mike Heffner owned No. 27 entry, Pittman was very successful winning numerous races in the Keystone State including a pair of Mitch Smith Memorial’s as well as a Keystone Cup title.

Pittman won nine features this season and finished fourth in points.

“First, I would like to thank Kasey Kahne and everyone associated with Kasey Kahne Racing for six great years on the road in the No. 9 car,” Pittman said. “To win a World of Outlaws Championship and win a ton of races will certainly always be a very special part of my career that I truly do cherish and I wish KKR the best moving forward.”
