Saldana, Darrah have combined for four wins in last six Outlaws events at Castrol
EDMONTON, Alberta - Aug. 18, 2012 - It's a long trip to Castrol Raceway, but one that Kasey Kahne Racing teammates Joey Saldana and Cody Darrah both look forward to.
The duo has combined to win four of the last six World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series events at the 3/8-mile track, which hosts the Outlaws on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 24-25, for the Oil City Cup to conclude this season's events in Canada.
"It was definitely a good stop we had there last year," Darrah said. "We got our first Outlaws win with Kasey there."
"Working off of Joey's notes … that was probably our biggest success. To go off his feedback and to be able to pull a win off of it really shows how good Kasey Kahne Racing is there."
Saldana missed the trip last year because of an injury, but is excited to return to the unique venue.
"I just really enjoy racing that track," he said. "It's a cool facility and the fans really support it.
"I think it's just a really good short track. It seems to stay pretty racy all night. Even when it gets slick it builds up a cushion. You can drive around there pretty hard all night."
Tony Stewart Racing teammates Steve Kinser and Donny Schatz split the first two events in 2007. Jason Meyers earned three victories with Jac Haudenschild also picking up a win at Castrol Raceway.
