    Not doubting you but where are you hearing this? Unless you have some inside sources I believe the Pittman rumors are just speculation. I don't think anyone will be surprised to see Wilson drop off. Hopefully he runs ASCoC.

    Nevermind... I see where winged nation tweeted Pittman is looking to put something together. Hopefully that just means looking for funding to stay with KKR. I'd love too see Kahne run WoO full-time but not at the expense of Pittman being axed. He's too good to not be on tour with WoO.

      Yes. I believe they signed a new three year deal with him.

          Call-Holbrook 83 or Roth 83? Those are the two that stand out to me.

            Daryn Pittman via Twitter sort-of clarified that right now there is no funding for the 9 car and that they are still working on it. Curious as to how dire this is. Would the 9 car shutter without any funding or would we see a blank car more next season?

                    I recall seeing them at the Mansfield shows. Without double checking, I'm pretty certain that Rob Chaney made the 100k A Main but not sure if they ran much more than that.

                    Per the Twitter machine, Spencer Bayston will move out of midgets and race 410 Sprint Cars full time in 2019. No mention of a series or schedule commitment. No mention of a car either but we can probably assume it will be in the Swindell Speedlab 39.

                      I get the feeling Bayston will run the ASCoC

                        I wonder if more drivers/teams will get out of following the midget full-time with knowing if your not part of the Kunz or Clauson teams your running for 5-20 depending on how many teams those two owners are putting on the track that night which in some cases could be half the A-Main.

                        Good to see especially thought it was strange last year when some of the bigger sprint car races were going on he had a prior commitment with the midget deal so glad I am going to see him and that team more running sprint car races.

                          Did any local drivers pick up a full time ride.
                          I can think of
                          Dean Jacobs
                          Brad Haudenschild
                          Dale Blaney
                          Chad Kemanah
                          Rob Chaney
                          DJ Foos

                            Didn't Brad Haudenschild retire?
