Sprint Car driver Daryn Pittman has made the decision to step out of driving. He wants to explore new opportunities, he said.
He wants to focus on the business side of the sport.
“After much time and reflection over the past couple [of] seasons, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and a shortened 2020 season, I began to realize that I would like to explore some new opportunities,” Pittman said. “Although racing full-time for the past 25-years has provided me and my family a great living, many wonderful opportunities to travel the country, and the chance to make friends/fans all over the world: I would like to shift my focus to what life will look like from outside the driver’s seat full-time in 2021.”
He was the driver of the No. 83 car for Roth Motorsports during the 2020 season.
“Racing full-time and traveling with the WoO (World of Outlaws) for 17-years has taught me many valuable lessons along the way,” he said. “I feel it is time to focus on other interests and avenues in the racing community. Although my plans are not fully certain at this time, I would like to pursue the business side of the racing industry. Racing has been my life since I was a kid. We have lived and breathed this sport as a family our whole lives. I feel my passion and knowledge of the sport can be beneficial in many areas outside of driving. While I don’t have anything set in stone yet, I know I want to focus on something different in 2021. We are currently pursuing a few different ideas, and I am very much looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead. I am excited for what opportunities the future may hold.”
The long-time Sprint Car driver said this is not a retirement.
“I am by no means willing to call this a retirement at this time, I just don’t know what the future might hold or how much time this next adventure will allow me to race,” Pittman said. “One thing I want to make clear, I love being part of the racing community. I feel incredibly blessed to have been able to chase my dreams for as long as I have, and accomplish as much as I have. I look forward to seeing everyone at the track for many years to come.”
