Daryn Pittman is 34 years old and hails from Owasso, Oklahoma but now resides in Pittsboro, Indiana. He practically grew up racing and developed aspirations of becoming a professional race car driver very early on. Progressing at an accelerated pace through the ranks of Quarter Midgets, Micros and later a family-owned 360 with the ASCS series, Daryn got his first full-time shot in 1999 on the World of Outlaws tour.

After adapting to the brutal learning curve of battling the best in the business, night after night, Pittman has recorded 35 World of Outlaws career victories (29 A Main events & 6 Prelims which is 14th best of all time on the WoO circuit). He has also won 20 different feature events in Australia. Daryn tied a career high by finishing fourth in the World of Outlaws points race in 2007 while recording six series wins in the process. In 2008, Daryn captured the famous King's Royal title at Eldora Speedway winning a cash prize of $50,000. Additionally, he is one of only six drivers to ever win both the King’s Royal and Historical Big One.

For the 2013 season, Daryn joined the Outlaws tour full-time again with Kasey Kahne Racing behind the wheel of the Great Clips No. 9 and has already won three times on the circuit. He is currently leading the points by 133 markers.

2012 Recap: In a limited schedule with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, Pittman finished 15th in the standings.

He recorded seven top fives, 16 top 10s and set quick time in qualifying three times - tied for sixth best.

Pittman ended the season with seven victories, including one in the Front Row Challenge at Southern Iowa Speedway. He garnered the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Eastern Region title.
