Your final quarter mile journey has brought you home and set you free. Your loving memory will be cherished forever.
Drag racing lost one of its "True" legends on Sunday, January 31st. K.S. "Tiger" Pittman passed away in Springfield Missouri. K.S. was without a doubt the "King" of the AA/GS supercharged gassers. K.S. was one of the first touring pros, traveling back and froth from California to Pennsylvania and all point in between. In perhaps the greatest decade of Drag Racing, K.S was the winingest driver in the United States. His 40 Willys coupe and later his two 33 Willys were all most unbeatable. First time I met K.S. was in 1968, my Dad and him use to match race back here in the east. I remember the first time they raced, it was like my Dad was racing the "King"....and thats exactly who K.S. was....the KING of AA/GS..! Over the next decades, I had a chance to be able to call K.S. a friend, and I cherish that. He was not only a legend, he was my hero. As hard as it is to know, he's gone, its comforting to know he's in a better place. I'm sure my Dad and K.S. will get chance to line up once again..................God Speed..K.S.
