Spencer Bayston will take the reins of the Roth Motorsports #83 for the remainder of the 2020 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season starting at Plymouth Speedway on Sept. 24.
He’ll replace 2013 World of Outlaws champion Daryn Pittman, who vacates the ride after this weekend’s events at Lawton Speedway and Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
“I am very excited and honored to have this opportunity to drive for such a top-notch team on the World of Outlaws tour,” said Bayston, of Lebanon, IN. “I have a ton of respect for Daryn Pittman and the success he had with the team over the last two seasons, and I know these are really big shoes to fill.”
Over the last three seasons, Bayston has made the transition to 410 Sprint Car racing, competing for the likes of the Swindell Speed Lab, Pete Grove, Indy Race Parts and Tarlton Motorsports.
This year has been a break out year for the youngster as he picked up a King of the West Feature event win at the Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA, ran fifth at the Capitani Classic at Knoxville Raceway, and recently picked up an All Star Circuit of Champions win at Lincoln Speedway against the PA Posse. He’s still on the hunt for his first World of Outlaws win, though.
Bayston joins a young Roth Motorsports crew led by Brent Ventura who looks forward to the new venture to close out the 2020 season, as Stephen Hamm-Reilly and Tony Barkman will remain in place.
“I am excited to work with Spencer Bayston and see what we can do together,” Ventura said. “I’ve seen him run up front at a lot of places that we have on our upcoming schedule, and hopefully we can finish this season out strong.”
Bayston and the team will have 12 World of Outlaws races together to try and get a win before the end of the season.
“We are very excited to welcome Spencer Bayston aboard,” said Roth Motorsports owner Dennis Roth. “We still have a lot of racing left in 2020, and we are looking forward to seeing how the team can perform.”
