BILLINGS - The Brawl at Big Sky battle for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will hit the track for the fourth straight year at Big Sky Speedway in Billings, Mont., on Saturday, August 29, 2020.

This past season, David Gravel earned his first win at Big Sky Speedway, picking up the checkered flag over Logan Schuchart and Donny Schatz. Daryn Pittman scored his second win at the three-eighths-mile and third overall in 2018. Pittman earned his first trip to victory lane at Big Sky Speedway in 2005.

The World of Outlaws made their debut at Big Sky Speedway in 2004, with 20-time series champion, Steve Kinser, sweeping that pair of events. In 2005, Kinser won the opener, with Pittman taking the finale. The Outlaws returned to the track in 2008, with Joey Saldana picking up the win.

Sweet claimed his first World of Outlaws championship this past season and the second overall for Kasey Kahne Racing. The California native won a series-best 16 races en route to the title, which he claimed by a mere four point over Schatz, who won 11 times in 2019. David Gravel, who reached victory lane on 10 occasions this past season was third in points. Daryn Pittman, who won four races was fourth in the standings, with Logan Schuchart, who won a career-high eight times, rounding out the top-five.

Carson Macedo, who claimed the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award was sixth in points, on the strength of four wins. Ian Madsen, who scored two wins, was seventh in the standings, with Sheldon Haudenschild, who won twice, in eighth. Shane Stewart, who picked up one win in 2019 was ninth in the final point tally, with Brent Marks, who scored the biggest win of his career in the Williams Grove National Open, rounding out the top-10. Veteran drivers Kraig Kinser, Jacob Allen and Jason Sides all were on the road as well in 2019.
