Pittman Transitions from One Seat to Another
Ultra Shield Race Products has been a recognizable brand in the motorsports industry for over 34 years. At the end of April, Robert & Donna Bass will hand over the reins of Ultra Shield to Daryn & Mandy Pittman. “We are both excited to build on the legacy that Robert and Donna have made in the industry. We will continue to manufacture high quality racing products for our customers with dreams of building the brand for many years to come. We are proud and honored that Robert & Donna are confident in us to continue growing Ultra Shield within the motorsports industry,” said Daryn Pittman.
Robert & Donna Bass started Ultra Shield Race Products in 1987 by manufacturing tearoffs, but the business quickly progressed at the request of racers to include seats, belts and nets. “We have always tried to listen to the racers and make adjustments to help ensure their safety and comfort while using our products. We feel privileged to be part of an industry that has allowed us to build Ultra Shield Race Products. We would like to thank the racers, customers and dealers for their support, suggestions, and loyalty. We are looking forward to working with Daryn & Mandy, and helping them transition to business owners. We are excited to see where they can take the business and feel the future of Ultra Shield is in good hands,” stated Robert.
In his 25 years of racing with the World of Outlaws, Daryn has been extremely successful in his own right, having achieved a WoO championship in 2013, and a total of 86 WoO wins, which ranks him 9th on the all-time win list with the series. As stated in late 2020, Daryn Pittman made the decision to step away from racing full time on the World of Outlaws tour to pursue other opportunities. “I am extremely passionate about the safety aspect of all forms of racing, and I am excited to be able to take over a brand that I chose to keep me safe in the race car since 1999. The opportunity to purchase Ultra Shield Race Products and continue to carry it into the future could not be passed up. We are excited to learn all that Robert & Donna can teach us, and we are thankful that they will remain on board to help us navigate the business,” stated Daryn.
