The World of Outlaws season is coming to a close now with only 3 nights of racing left. Daryn Pittman has essentially wrapped up the title. Mathematically Donny Schatz is still alive, but unless he wins the last 3 races and Pittman has a couple of 20th place finishes, it’s over. Schatz has won 21 features and Pittman has won 8. This has stirred up some controversy about the WoO point system, but I feel the point system is fine as is. The season long battle is just that. It should reward consistency over the long haul of 70 plus nights of racing. Pittman has not won a feature event since July 23 at Rolling Wheels. That is nearly 3 months and 22 races ago. Ironically the WoO goes back to Rolling Wheels this Saturday night before the season ends at Charlotte.
