Jason Sides Dodges to Boot Hill Showdown Win

Scores his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory since 2012

 

 

DODGE CITY, Kan. - July 3, 2015 - After fighting forward in Friday night's Boot Hill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park, Jason Sides dodged his way through traffic and battled Donny Schatz to score his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory since 2012.

"It's been a long time," said an emotional Sides in victory lane. "It's been a long last couple of years. It's just one of those things that we just keep plugging away. We're out here having a good time about it but for the most part still trying to make a living and beat this 15 car over here."

The win, his second at Dodge City Raceway Park, comes as Sides has spent much of the last month without any full-time crew members to help his family owned team.

"I miss my brother (Paul) being out here but he had to go home," Sides said. "It's just one of those things where it's a big family sport and it's like a big family to us out here and we really appreciate it."

A favorite with fans and his fellow competitors alike, Sides' win was met with congratulations from the guys he beat.

"I'm happier than hell for Jason Sides," said Schatz, who finished second. "He drove the wheels off that thing and I tried everything I could to get back by him but he was awful good tonight."

Joey Saldana, who finished on the podium in third on Friday night, followed that up.

"He's been out here doing this deal all by himself so he's very much deserving of this win tonight," Saldana said. "Proud of him and his guys."

The last time Sides stood in victory lane with the World of Outlaws was at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in October 2012.

David Gravel led the field to green but it was Jason Johnson, back in just his second race since returning from medical leave, who led the first six laps. Schatz shot to second place before the field made the first circuit and hung tight on Johnson as the two began to work their way through traffic. Schatz, who was fast on the bottom all night, got around Johnson off of turn four and went on to lead lap six. Johnson tried to work his way back by a few laps later, but Schatz was able to hold him off.

It was a surging Sides though who posed the biggest threat to Schatz. Sides, who started fifth in his No. 7S Dancer Logistics/FSR/ WTS/King Racing Products car, took over third on lap 1 and second on lap 12. As Schatz worked his way through traffic, Sides waited.

"It was just one of those things where I was committed to the bottom and if they tried to slip up off the bottom we were going to get underneath them," said the Bartlett, Tennessee-native.

As Schatz did just that in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car, Sides made his move and took over the lead as the two drivers completed lap 14. Schatz closed the gap a couple of times as the laps ticked by, including a close call for Sides on lap 17, but Sides held off the reigning champion.

Sides pulled away in the waning laps as he worked his way through traffic.

"It seemed like we rotated pretty good around the corners and we could get underneath the slower cars there," Sides said. "We could run the top in three and four pretty hard and got around a few cars like that. We just were committed to the bottom and the Kistler Engine just kept pulling hard off the bottom and we kept going with it down there."

Schatz said he struggled all night to get his car to work as well on the top of the race track as it did on the bottom.

"That was obviously the preferred line," Schatz said of the top. "I told the guys the wrong direction to go with the racecar and it's my own fault. Tonight's the night you want to do that. We want to be better for tomorrow night. There are no excuses, (Sides) drove around us. He got me in lap traffic and that's how you win them and that's how you lose them. We don't want to run second but if we have to run second, racing that way, that hard, is pretty awesome."

Saldana, who, in addition to scoring his third podium finish in a row, took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award, methodically worked his way forward from a ninth place starting position. The driver of the No. 71M Motter Equipment car jumped to fifth by lap two and to fourth by lap seven. After briefly slipping back to fifth, Saldana worked his way forward and got around Daryn Pittman for third with three laps to go.

"Lap traffic was really tough," Saldana said. "We definitely have a good car, we've just got to do things right. And the driver has got to do things right. Tonight we did OK, we just need to get a little bit better.

From 10th, Schatz Charges to Score Win at Lakeside Speedway

Schatz became the first driver to win back-to-back races without participating in the Dash

 

 

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - July 1, 2015 - If Donny Schatz has a point to prove, it is that it does not matter where he starts, he will always be a threat to win. He certainly did that Wednesday night at the O'Reilly Auto Parts presents the Outlaws at Lakeside Speedway where, after charging forward from 10th, the six-time and reigning series champion battled past Joey Saldana in the closing laps of the feature to score his 18th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

It was Schatz's first ever win at Lakeside.

"We've never actually run very good here," Schatz said. "This Bad Boy Buggies race team just worked hard on it trying to figure out what we do at all these places where we haven't been good. We've had a real balanced race car everywhere we've been. Hats off to them."

Tonight's win added another mark in the record books for Schatz who became the first driver to score back-to-back wins without participating in the dash. Schatz won at Beaver Dam last Saturday after starting in 10th.

David Gravel led the field to the green flag with Joey Saldana on his outside. The two drivers drag raced side by side into turn one with the advantage to Saldana as they exited. Through the opening laps, Saldana built up a sizable lead. He caught the back of the field on lap five.

As he and the cars behind began working through traffic the distance between all of them closed. By lap eight, third place Kerry Madsen had his hands full, fending off the 51 of Paul McMahan and trying to get around Gravel, then in second. As the three drivers battled, Schatz, who had moved into the fifth position by the third circuit, was poised to make moves. Madsen took over the second spot on lap 11 while McMahan and Schatz followed around Gravel. The next lap by, Schatz took over third.

The first yellow of the night came out on lap 13 as the No. 21 FVP car driven by Brian Brown slowed to a stop in turn 3. When the field returned to green, Schatz got around Madsen for the second position.

Saldana maintained and built his lead through the next seven laps, but as he caught the back of the field once again, Schatz closed the gap and began looking for a way around. He finally got his opportunity on lap 27 as Saldana was slowed up by a lapped car off of turn four. Schatz dove low and took the position as the two went into turn one.

One more yellow flew, but Saldana was not able to get around Schatz on the green-white-checkered finish that ended the 30 lap feature.

"That green-white-checkered was the fastest I felt all night," Schatz said. "This place is tricky to get through traffic like that. It was really fast on the top - I didn't know if we were going to be able to do it. We just caught traffic and put ourselves in a good spot."

After overcoming a little adversity in the form of a flat trailer tire before they got to track earlier in the day, Saldana and his No. 71m Motter Equipment team maintained laser consistency throughout the night.

"It was a great night," Saldana said. "The guys worked hard to make it and the whole night was really good. We were stuck in second - second in qualifying, second in heat, second in the dash and feature. It's a really good solid night for us and something for the team to be proud of."

Madsen, who ran as high as second Wednesday night after starting in sixth, said his car was good but Schatz was just able to find the better lines through traffic.

"We went on that double file restart there, took a chance and went for the big wide line on the restart and went for the slider down in 1 and 2 there and just gave Donny a good run there," Madsen said. "We had a great racecar we just didn't quite get it done… On to Dodge City. I feel like we're getting some momentum and get some podiums and possible a win here shortly."

At A Glance: Outlaws Celebrate the 4th of July at Boot Hill Showdown

The series also returns to Lakeside Speedway to makeup a previously rain-postponed O?Reilly Auto Parts presents the Outlaws at Lakeside

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - June 30, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads to Dodge City, Kansas for the 4th of July weekend as the series takes on Dodge City Raceway Park and the annual Boot Hill Showdown on July 3 and 4.
 

The track, which has played host to the Outlaws since 2004, has seen 10 different winners. Joey Saldana has the most wins at Dodge City with five total trips to victory lane.

In recent years though, Daryn Pittman has been the driver to beat. Last year, he beat Paul McMahan and Kerry Madsen to take the win on night one, and topped Madsen and David Gravel to make it an even sweep on night two. In total, Pittman has four wins at the 3/8 mile track.

Great seats are still available for the Boot Hill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park. Visit http://woosprint.com/boot-hill-showdown for information and to purchase tickets.

The series also returns to Lakeside Speedway this week for the O'Reilly Auto Parts presents the Outlaws at Lakeside on Wednesday, July 1. The event is the makeup for the previously rain postponed event on June 6.

Kerry Madsen stood in victory lane at the track last season after fending off Sammy Swindell and Paul McMahan. Notable among the winners is a driver who is not among them - reigning series champion Donny Schatz.

Hard Charging Schatz Wins JB Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway

Scores his 17th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season

 

 

BEAVER DAM, Wis. - June 27, 2015 - Four different drivers led an intense Jim Boyd "JB" Memorial presented by Karavan Trailers at Beaver Dam Raceway on Saturday night, but it was a familiar face who emerged at the end - Donny Schatz.

The reigning World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion battled through traffic from a 10th place starting position and around leader Daryn Pittman late in the race to score his 17th win of the season and the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger Award.

"This race team, you don't count them out," Schatz said of his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team. "It doesn't matter if we start 10th or 20th. They've got their game face on, they're really motivated right now, they're really on top of things. The more people mess with them, the more they work hard so that obviously showed tonight."

When the green flag fell on the 40-lap feature, Kerry Madsen led Shane Stewart, Daryn Pittman and Joey Saldana. Stewart quickly battled to the lead as the scrum behind him began. Pittman and Madsen traded positions through the opening laps with Pittman taking over second then losing it again on lap 10. By lap 12, Madsen drove past Stewart for the lead as the two drivers exited turn four.

As traffic came in to play, the front of the field bunched up. Stewart and then Pittman both made runs at the lead, at times getting side-by-side with Madsen, but neither one was able to close the deal until lap 26 when Pittman drag raced Madsen down the front stretch and beat him as they came off of turn two. He took over the lead on lap 27.

Schatz, meanwhile, had moved from 10th to sixth by lap nine. He stayed between there and fifth for the majority of the feature. Then, on lap 30, Schatz began his assault on the leaders, picking up fourth on lap 28, then third on lap 30. As Pittman worked his way through traffic, Schatz found his opportunity.

Pittman went to low side in turns three and four, Schatz went to the high side. Both found lapped cars in front of them, but Pittman got stuck as Schatz used the middle to get around the one blocking his line.

"He trapped himself there," Schatz said of Pittman. "There were guys on the bottom and he was having trouble getting by them and you just kind of had to go all over."

Joey Saldana, who hovered around the fourth position all night, worked his way around Stewart for third, using traffic as a pick.

The only caution of the night flew with four laps remaining. When the race returned to green Schatz built up a healthy lead as Pittman tried to run him down. Saldana had his hands full holding off Stewart. Ultimately though it was Schatz standing in victory lane - the first time since 2002 he has won at Beaver Dam.

"(My crew chief Ricky Warner) asked me at the start if I wanted to be married to the top or the bottom and I said, I need to go everywhere and they did a phenomenal job getting the racecar to do that," Schatz said. "It could float through the middle a little bit if I caught it just right and I could hammer the cushion if I had to or even slow down and hit the bottom. Lap traffic is fun, it's what helped us win the race. It's the only way we probably would have started 10th tonight and won."

Schatz extended his lead in the championship battle to 210 over second place Shane Stewart. Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team have won six of the last ten Outlaws races.

Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, said the track has historically been good for his No. 9 Great Clips team.

"I honestly consider this my second best place next to New Egypt as far as my performance," Pittman said. "We had a good run and we had a good car. Traffic just killed me… I just made a couple of mistakes. Man, that was a lot of fun. It was a fun race, hats off to this whole Great Clips team because we had a good car all night."

Saldana, who took home the quick time award of the night, his eighth of the season and the most of any driver in 2015, said traffic was the key for the night, especially when battling Schatz.

"Donny seems to figure out lap traffic better than anybody or he knows where to put his car in the right spot at the right time," Saldana said. "You just have to learn from that and try to get better. We had a great car all night. The whole Motter team worked hard. We've been a solid car, we've just had a ton of bad luck. Just finishing tonight and knowing we can go to the next race and have some momentum on our side is huge."

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Prepares for New Cedar Lake Speedway Summer Destination Event

'The Greatest Show on Dirt' takes center stage at Cedar Lake Speedway Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown on July 11-12

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - June 23, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and Cedar Lake Speedway are preparing for a new weekend destination event this summer with the two-day Cedar Lake Speedway Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown on Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12.

The Showdown will bring back-to-back nights of racing action to the 3/8-mile clay oval in New Richmond, Wis., as the series competes for two $10,000-to-win purses. The new weekend destination event is the culmination of 30 years of Outlaw history at the track.

"Cedar Lake is one of the few tracks on the World of Outlaws schedule that has been a fixture since the beginning," World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers said. "It is exciting to be able to expand this great event and provide the passionate fan base of Cedar Lake with another opportunity to see The Greatest Show on Dirt."

In addition to World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, the Showdown weekend will feature A-modifieds and the traditional 360 sprint cars of the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series.

Cedar Lake Speedway, 40 miles east of Minneapolis, has been a staple on the series schedule since 1983, and is a favorite of many of the series regulars, including CJB Motorsports' Paul McMahan.

"It's a neat racetrack," said McMahan, a 2007 winner at Cedar Lake. "It has a great fan base that's always been supportive. I'm looking forward to being there for two days."

Six-time series champion Donny Schatz won at Cedar Lake in 2014, adding to two previous wins at the track.

Reserved tickets and campsites for the Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown are available now at www.CLSTickets.com.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is brought to fans across the country by many important sponsors and partners, including: Lincoln Welders (Official Welder), Bad Boy Buggies (Official Side-by-Side Vehicle), The Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience (Official Racing Experience), Hoosier Racing Tire (Official Tire), VP Racing Fuels (Official Racing Fuel); in addition to contingency sponsors, including: Cometic Gasket, Comp Cams, Edelbrock, JE Pistons, KSE Racing Products, Mobil 1, MSD, Penske Racing Shocks, Sweet Manufacturing, and Superflow Dynos; along with manufacturer sponsors, including: ButlerBuilt, Intercomp, Impact Race Products, Racing Electronics, S&S Volvo and TNT Rescue.

 

 

 

Triple Threat: Brad Sweet Picks up Third Win of the Season in NAPA Rumble in Michigan

Snaps Donny Schatz�s five-race Win Streak

 

 

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. - June 24, 2015 - Racing on the bullrings of his home state of California early in his career taught Brad Sweet how to negotiate some pretty intimidating cushions. A nearly foot and a half cushion that resembled more a ledge on Wednesday night at I-96 Speedway in Michigan didn't faze Sweet, nor did a battle with six-time and defending series champion Donny Schatz.

Sweet used a slide job in turns one and two on lap 29 to take the lead from Schatz and withstood a number of late restarts to win the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan which marked his third win of the season and first since April. Sweet, who was the final of three leaders on Wednesday night, became the sixth different winner in the last five races for the World of Outlaws at I-96 Speedway.

"It was a tricky track tonight," said Sweet, who drives the Ollie's Bargain Outlet machine for Kasey Kahne Racing. "I got a terrible restart and I think I just got really mad and got my elbows up. I had a win it or wear it mentality. The (No.) 15 has been making it tough on everyone out here and we all have been fighting and clawing to try to figure it out. We still have a lot of work to do to beat Donny (Schatz), but tonight we were able to get the Ollie's Bargain Outlet car in victory lane and it feel really, really good."

Sweet lined up fourth and was up to second following the first caution of the night on the seventh lap. After he took the lead on lap-29, he briefly lost it on a restart, but Schatz was called for a jump and Sweet retained the lead. The final six laps were slowed by three cautions and a red flag period. Sweet used strong restarts each time to hold the top spot en route to the win.

"It was hard to tell which way to go sometimes on those restarts," noted Sweet. "I chose the bottom because it seemed like the bottom was winning of the restarts before. I wasn't sure about that tricky cushion. Donny got a run there on that one and they called back. We did everything we could tonight. We fought and we clawed."

Schatz, who was seeking his sixth straight win, started on the outside of the front row next to his teammate Steve Kinser, who led the opening 15 circuits. Schatz would pace the field for 13 laps, while Sweet and Kerry Madsen stalked him. While his win streak was snapped, Schatz was able to extend his lead in the series standings as he chases his seventh series title aboard the Bad Boy Buggies J&J.

Following a late restart, Schatz went over the banking off the back straightaways, falling back a few spots. He would use a late charge to get back by Paul McMahan and Kerry Madsen to finish second.

"You only see a cushion like that once every 30 or 40 races," said Schatz. "My crew is awesome and they are working to make the car so we don't have to run the cushion like that. The goal is to find something to make the car a little better so we can get off the cushion. We had some laps where we were better moving around the race track. I think at one point we were back to fourth or fifth and got back up there."

Madsen, who is seeking his first win of the season, charged from the sixth starting spot to move up to third by the sixth lap. The native of St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia, who now calls Knoxville Iowa home, ran as high as second during the 35-lap contest.

"We were sputtering and ran out of fuel the last six laps, so we're glad to finish third," said Madsen. "We had a great race car and it was capable of winning and just didn't do the right things. Congratulations to Brad (Sweet) and Donny (Schatz), it is still awesome to be on the podium. I am very proud of my guys. Thanks to all of the Michigan fans. It was a great race track and very challenging and I enjoyed every minute of it."

Paul McMahan was fourth with Shane Stewart fifth. Jason Sides, who opened the night by setting a new track record in time trials finished sixth, followed by Daryn Pittman, Logan Schuchart, David Gravel and Nate Dussel.

At A Glance: Gearing Up for a Busy World of Outlaws Summer

The series heads back to I-96 Speedway and then travels on to 34 Raceway and Beaver Dam Raceway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - June 22, 2015 - The summer swing for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is ready to get underway as the series faces two grueling months ahead and some of the biggest events on the schedule.

Since the start of the season in February, 37 events have been run. By the end of August the Outlaws will add nearly 30 more completed events. In a 91 race season, that marks a substantial portion of the schedule in a relatively short period of time.

Staying competitive through the heat of the season and that swing is a challenge for drivers and teams, rookies and veterans. How they overcome is part of the strategy to being competitive night in and night out and making sure they are in contention for wins and championships.

"The biggest challenge is just staying healthy and getting rest and being prepared and mentally focused," David Gravel said. "A lot of late nights, a lot of big races coming up - the Month of Money. You want to be prepared and have your team as strong as you can for that the next month, month and a half. There's a lot of things but just being prepared mentally is a big thing for sure."

2013 series champion Daryn Pittman agrees. He said the challenge gets ratcheted up when you're struggling as a team.

"It's easy to do when you're running well, which we have the last couple of years," Pittman said. "But we're definitely struggling right now. It's hard to show up and know you've got to find speed to contend for a win."

On the flip side, the challenge is just as intense for the crew chiefs, the car chiefs and the tire specialists who work behind the scenes to get cars ready and where they need to go. The hours of work after the race and on days off means little down time. Just like for drivers, it's about staying healthy and keeping motivated Gravel said.

Even the rising temperatures come into play as the summer heat takes its toll.

Another challenge, Kraig Kinser said, is balancing work and travel while still getting everything done.

"It's not always possible to do everything you'd like to be doing to the car in between times and just checking stuff," Kinser said. "It's a challenge to do everything you need to do day in and day out, especially when you start racing night after night."

And though the son of 20-time Outlaws champion Steve Kinser said he's used to the travel having grown up around the sport, the advantage is minimal, if it all.

"I'm used to it but there are a lot of good drivers out here who have been doing it for a long time who are also used to it," Kinser said. "They've got good cars and good crews and then you add in the local guys who are there with you for three or four races and they've got their stuff geared up and ready to go. It's tough for everybody. Competition is tough and you've just got to be prepared for it."

In their downtime Kinser and Gravel said it is important to find things that get their minds off of racing. Getting home, getting sleep, watching SportsCenter and playing golf are all things they do to rest.

Pittman is among a select group of drivers who has his family on the road with him during the summer months. That, he said, is a big help as the season grinds along.

"There's no doubt it's good to go back to the motorhome and your kids don't care how you run," Pittman said. "It's easy to be in a really, really bad mood and walk back in and (my daughter Taylor will) make a joke, or say something to me that puts it all in perspective. If nothing else, it gets my mind off of racing for a little bit - and makes me have a fresh mindset that life is good."

While the nightly racing at track is certainly the most visible part of the competition, all of the other variables are just as important.

"If it was easy, everybody would be doing it," Pittman said. "That's what it's all about, fighting through it and knowing that it's a long year and you can turn it around at any point."

See Pittman, Kinser, Gravel and all of the series competitors compete this week as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series return to action at I-96 Speedway to makeup a previously rain-postponed event on Wednesday, June 24. The series then heads to 34 Raceway and Beaver Dam Raceway. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets to each event, visit http://www.WoOSprint.com.

Five in Row for Donny Schatz with Dakota State Fair Speedway Win

The win comes after an hour-long delay during the feature to repair the front straight catch fence

 

 

HURON, S.D. - June 20, 2015 - Donny Schatz did it again Saturday night, putting together a dominant performance at Dakota State Fair Speedway's Iverson Huron presents the Greatest Show on Dirt, scoring the inaugural Outlaws win at the track and his fifth straight victory.

"I can't say enough for this Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance team," said Schatz, who now has 16 wins in 2015 with his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Team. "The racecar they put under me every night is unbelievable. I'm sure there are probably better racecar drivers out there that could handle it but I'm the lucky guy that gets to drive it right now. Hats off to them, they just do a phenomenal job from the start of the night to the end. The longer the race goes, it just seems like it gets even better. They're on their A game right now."

The feature got underway shortly before 10 p.m. but was quickly red flagged as the No. 5 car of Dave Glennon ended up in the front stretch catch fence following a crash. The repairs to the fence took about an hour.

The green flag fell once again with Daryn Pittman leading his Kasey Kahne Racing teammate Brad Sweet to the start. On the first circuit Schatz raced around Sweet in turn three to take over the second position. By lap five, Pittman had caught the back of the field as Schatz was bearing down. As the two drivers came off of turn four, they split a lapped car, Pittman going high and Schatz low. Schatz took over the lead after the start/finish line. Pittman battled back and retook the lead before the two could complete lap six.

Just two laps later as they worked to complete lap nine, Schatz again used a lapped car to his advantage. As Pittman tried to pass the car, he got caught up and Schatz worked the high side around.

"He did everything he could we were just a little bit better in spots so I could move around the race track and run the top of three and four and we could run the bottom," Schatz said. "The racetrack turned out to be really awesome tonight."

Farther back, Shane Stewart was charging through the field after starting in seventh. By lap nine he had moved into the fourth position and began running down Sweet, then running third. Stewart took over the position on the next lap and set his sights on the leaders.

As the race wound down, he began battling Pittman in traffic for the position. Pittman, preferring the inside line, held Stewart off lap after lap as the two exited turn two. By lap 28, Stewart was right on Pittman's tail tank, and drag raced Pittman down the front straight.

Schatz crossed the line first with Stewart in second and Pittman in third.

"I'm glad we were able to get by him and hit that lapped traffic," Schatz said of his earlier battle with Pittman. "Lapped traffic was fun again. You move around the race track and guys are all over the place, you see them moving, so it's what you look forward to, not always when you're leading but you can put a little space between you and second."

Tonight's second place finish was the fourth straight podium finish for Stewart and his Eneos/Larson Marks Racing team. Stewart has spent much of the season running right around Schatz.

"It's the same old song just a different verse," Stewart said. "I keep saying it, but we need to be a little quicker. We've just got to keep doing what we're doing and not worry so much about him. And keep doing what we're doing and hopefully one of these days we can compete with him on a daily basis. We're getting there, we're working hard and that's all you can do."

Stewart was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing five positions throughout the 30-lap feature.

Pittman said the night's race was the first race in a while where he didn't feel like his car was too free - quite the opposite in fact. He said tight race cars are not great for him.

"Just the way we've been running the last couple of weeks, we'll take third," Pittman said. "We've just been struggling and we're not where we need to be but these guys just don't give up. I'm not going to give up either. We're just going to keep battling until we get the car where we need to be and get it where it consistently needs to be for one thing… We still have a lot of the season left to go, a lot of races and we'll no doubt rebound and hopefully finish the year strong."

15 for the 15: Donny Schatz Makes It Four in a Row with River Cities Win

Dusty Zomer finishes second, scores his best ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series finish

 

 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - June 19, 2015 - In front of a packed house at River Cities Speedway Friday night, Donny Schatz continued his impressive 2015 run, besting Dusty Zomer to score his 15th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win so far this season and fourth in a row.

"That was fun in traffic," Schatz said. "The race track was unbelievable. There was a top, a bottom, a middle - sliding, turning. It's not very often that it happens like that."

Racing against impending weather, the green flag fell on the 40-lap feature with Zomer and Schatz on the front row. Zomer led the first two laps but a caution flag fell shortly after the second lap was completed. When the race returned to green, Schatz slid Zomer in turns three and four to lead lap three.

Schatz caught the back of the field on lap six and began lapping cars. As the laps ticked by Schatz expanded his lead as the field behind him stayed tight and worked their way through the traffic. By the final red flag of the night on lap 33, Schatz had built up a nearly four second lead over second place Zomer. On the restart, Zomer tried to make a move on the six-time champion, but it was Schatz's to lose.

"It's hard to tell what's going on when you're up front," Schatz said. "You just keep pushing as hard as you can. My car, for a point, got really good, really good and then it seemed like those yellows kind of hurt the momentum a little bit and it got really, really tight."

Through 36 races so far this season, Schatz has built up a 192 point lead over Shane Stewart in his campaign for a seventh series championship.

"Hats off to these three guys, they're unbelievable," Schatz said of his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team. "The car owner we have, we couldn't do it without his hard work and his effort to put us here with great marketing partners like Chevrolet Performance and Bad Boy Buggies and all the great people we have."

The battle for second and third was intense all night with a series of drivers fighting for the spots.

After Schatz took over the lead, Zomer settled in to second with Paul McMahan on his tail. By lap 12, it was Shane Stewart who, after slipping back to fourth at the start of the night, raced around McMahan on the high side of turns one and two. Five laps later, Stewart had caught Zomer and began trying to work his way around for second.

"We may have bumped a little bit but that's short track racing and that's what makes it fun and interesting," Stewart said of contact made between he and Zomer on lap 19. "I actually thought I had him there and then the caution came out. Just had to get my nose clean because I was pretty tight behind cars and blistered the right rear tire a little bit and probably hurt us a little bit later in the race."

After a caution on lap 31 and then a red flag on lap 33, Stewart tried again to get around Zomer but was not able as he fought off attempts by Brad Sweet, Joey Saldana and McMahan to get around him.

Zomer closed out the night in second with Stewart right behind in third. The finish was the best ever World of Outlaws finish for Zomer.

"I'm glad we could put on a heck of a show. Donny, he's good. Obviously you can tell he's been doing this for many years. He got around traffic really nice and he was able to maneuver really nice. I'm just happy for this whole team… they gave me a heck of a car tonight."

Just one week ago, Zomer had a wild crash at River Cities that ended the night for his No. 82 Buffalo Wild Wings team.

"Last week, obviously, we made the papers up here for taking a wild ride so now we're happy we're maybe making the papers here for making a top-three at the Outlaw show," Zomer said. "Super happy for the team, it was a good run."

For Stewart, the finish was the 20th top-five run of the season for his No. 2 Eneos/Larson Marks Racing team.

"It's great to come here to Grand Forks," Stewart said. "This is an awesome crowd. I haven't been here in a long time. It's good to see the fan support and head on to Huron and hopefully we can pick up a win then."

For the first time ever, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, S.D. for the Iverson Huron presents, tomorrow night. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/dakota-state-fair-speedway.

At A Glance: How Joey Saldana Prepares for This Weeks Two New Tracks

The series heads to Granite City Speedway, River Cities Speedway and Dakota State Fair Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - June 15, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series continues its swing through the Upper Midwest this week with stops in Minnesota and both Dakotas.

Two of the tracks the Outlaws will visit, Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota on Tuesday, and Dakota State Fair Speedway in Huron, South Dakota on Saturday, are new to the Outlaws schedule.

Without notes from previous appearances the challenge of new tracks is universal among the Outlaws drivers. For series veteran Joey Saldana, the biggest thing for his No. 71M Motter Motorsports team to figure out is the gearing.

"That's really the only thing you can do," Saldana said. "So going to two new tracks you're just trying to figure what track might be similar and get the gear close and go from there."

Saldana used Crawford County Speedway in Denison, Iowa, another new track to the Outlaws schedule this season, as an example.

"It's like Denison and Minot. I've been to Minot and maybe this would be pretty similar to Denison. And you'll go into Granite City that way and you'll go into Huron that way. Look at a similar track in your notes and hopefully you're close. You go out and you hot lap and you're hoping you're pretty close so that you can just tune on your cars all night. That's what we did at Denison and it worked out well - we had a real solid night."

The similar process across the Outlaws teams puts everyone on a level playing field when they take on somewhere new Saldana said. Still, there is one team he and others have their eyes on - the prolific pairing of Donny Schatz and his crew chief Ricky Warner.

"You've still got to beat those guys - it doesn't matter where we're racing. It comes down to a Donny Schatz race. Those guys are pretty spot on everywhere you go."

See Joey Saldana and 'The Greatest Show on Dirt' this week at Granite City Speedway on Tuesday, River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. on Friday and Dakota State Fair Speedway on Saturday.

With Husets Victory, Donny Schatz Wins Two Races at Two Separate Tracks in One Day

The win is the 13th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season for Schatz and his 185th career win

 

 

BRANDON, S.D. - June 14, 2015 - Less than 20 hours after he stood in victory lane at Knoxville Raceway in the wee hours of Sunday morning, Donny Schatz did it again Sunday night at Huset's Speedway, scoring his 13th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature win of the season.

It is just the second time an Outlaws driver has accomplished the feat.

"Hats off to this Bad Boy Buggies team, these guys do a phenomenal job day in and day out," said an emotional Schatz in victory lane. "It's been a long night for these teams - I know they're ready for bed. They didn't roll into town until the wee hours of the morning. I got one guy from Watertown, so a Huset's win is big."

Schatz joins Sammy Swindell in the record books. Swindell took home wins at the famed Moody Mile in Syracuse, N.Y. and Rolling Wheels Raceway in Elbridge, N.Y. on the same day in 1992.

The night could have had a very different outcome if not for some traffic and bad timing.

Paul McMahan led the field through the early going with Schatz and Daryn Pittman on his tail. Schatz got around Pittman to take over second on the third lap, but Pittman battled back on lap 8, throwing a slider on Schatz in turn three to retake the spot.

As McMahan, Pittman and Schatz worked their way through lapped traffic, the gap between the top-five closed. Schatz lost his spot to Shane Stewart on lap 15.

Four laps later, as McMahan and Pittman continued to work their way through traffic, the car in front of McMahan checked up to avoid contact with another car. With nowhere to go, McMahan made contact and spun, collecting Pittman on the exit of turn 2. The caution flag flew with the top-two cars turned around on track.

When the field returned to green, Stewart, who had been sitting third, took over the top spot. Schatz, Lasoski, David Gravel and Kraig Kinser made up the rest of the top five. Stewart led the next six laps until Schatz caught him on the front stretch and battled by to lead the next lap. One more caution flag waved, but Stewart wasn't able to catch Schatz.

"We were really good early trying to get around guys but it was just a matter of time before the rubber laid down," Schatz said. "We slipped up there and Daryn got by and then Shane got by. You just have to be patient. You've got to try to put yourself in a position to get back or force them into making a mistake… We had to get Shane back and that's pretty tough to do. A lot of it is this race team - I'm just the lucky guy who gets to drive it."

A frustrated Stewart said he was disappointed with the finish for his No. 2 Larson Marks Racing team after the opportunity he was given earlier in the feature.

"After getting the huge gift that I got, you hate losing a race like that," Stewart said. "Just got a little bit high and you just can't screw up when he's behind you. I hate it for my guys. They gave me a good car."

Lasoski, the 2001 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, battled forward from a sixth place starting position. The podium finish was the fifth top-five run for Lasoski with the Outlaws this season. He won at I-80 Speedway 10 days ago.

"Anytime we come here to Sioux Falls, it's like a third home for me," Lasoski said. "I love coming back here for the great fans here. I wish we could have gotten this GoMuddy.com car a couple of better spots."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action on Tuesday, June 16 at Granite City Speedway. It will be the first time the series has taken on the Sauk Rapids, Minnesota track.

Schatz Wins Fog Shortened Mediacom Shootout at Knoxville Raceway

The win is the 12th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season for the Fargo, N.D. native

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - June 13, 2015 - In an event that no one will soon forget, Donny Schatz scored his 12th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature win of the season Saturday night after heavy fog forced officials to call Knoxville Raceway's Mediacom Shootout early.

The weather played foe to the series throughout the night. After getting through qualifying, the heat races and the Dash, the skies opened up over the historic track. Intermittent rain showers continued for about an hour. It took two more hours for the track prep crew to get the track back in race condition.

As the green flag finally fell on the feature shortly before 2 a.m., fog began to roll in over the race track. Schatz and Justin Henderson battled side-by-side through the first two laps. As Schatz got some distance from Henderson, he caught the back of the field by lap seven. A caution flag flew the next time by. The field returned to green with Schatz leading Henderson and Kerry Madsen. He quickly built up a lead but again caught the back of the field a few laps later.

As the top three drivers stayed bunched up, the caution flag flew again with 15 laps complete. By this point, the fog, now heavy, had enveloped the track. Past the halfway point, and with visibility too bad to continue, the call was made to throw the checkered flag on the field as they made the final circuit under caution. 1980 was the last time Knoxville Raceway saw an event postponed because of fog.

"I don't know what happened there with the fog," said Schatz. "It wasn't bad until you got to turn three when you rolled down into the turn… that's a tough call."

Schatz, an eight time Knoxville Nationals champion, expanded his championship points lead over second place Shane Stewart to 177. He said the diversity of track conditions throughout the night gave his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team good information heading into Nationals.

Henderson, a Sioux Falls, South Dakota native, drove his No. 1 Eagle Power Equipment car to a second place finish.

"I'm proud of this team," Henderson said. "Donny did a good job keeping his momentum up there. I should have move up when I got by him but I lost that race and he did a really good job of taking it like a champ would."

It was the second night in a row Madsen, who calls Knoxville home along with his Keneric Racing team, stood on the podium.

"What do you do?" Madsen said of the weather. "Thanks to everyone that put in a bloody sterling effort to get the track in; the fans for sticking around… I really wanted to go on the last ten laps, but I couldn't even see the cone on the restart."

The World of Outlaws closes out a three-in-a-row swing tomorrow night at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/huset-s-speedway.

Shane Stewart Battles Kerry Madsen to Score Inaugural Outlaws Win at Crawford County Speedway

Joey Saldana takes quick time and sets new track record, as Outlaws utilize new two-flight qualifying format for the first time ever

 

 

DENISON, Iowa - June 12, 2015 - Kerry Madsen was the car to beat throughout Friday night's World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature at Crawford County Speedway but it was Shane Stewart who battled past the leader with two laps to go and claimed the inaugural Outlaws win at the track.

Stewart started the night in fourth and battled third place running Joey Saldana much of the night. Disaster almost struck on the first lap as the two made contact going into turn three, but Stewart recovered. Stewart tried to get around 'The Brownsburg Bullet' on lap 10, drag racing the No. 71M car down the front stretch, but Saldana held him off. A short time later, Stewart took advantage of lapped traffic and got around Saldana for third.

As the leader, Madsen, battled through traffic, three-time series champion Sammy Swindell, who was running second, tried to run him down. The battled stayed close until lap 21 when Swindell fell off. First Stewart got around him and then Saldana. Eventually a hard charging Donny Schatz worked his way around to take over fourth.

As the field came around to complete lap 28, Stewart slid Madsen with his Larson Marks Racing No. 2 as the two drivers dove into turn three and took over the lead. Stewart, who sits second in the championship standings, cruised to his fourth series win of the season.

"I knew I had to be a little bit patient. Coming off of turn four my car was really, really good. I just had to be patient and not hit those tires (at the bottom of the track)," Stewart said. "I felt like my whole key was getting off the exit of four. I knew Kerry was kind of getting held up by lapped traffic. When the track is this fast the lapped cars are as fast as we are. Everything just worked out for us."

Madsen, who sits third in the points standings and is the only driver in the top seven in points without a win, said it wasn't the finish his No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels team wanted but it was still a good run.

"Look, I always knew it was going to come down to traffic, and with where I was, I felt like I was doing a good job with it," Madsen said. "I was getting by and then I bogged down two or three times with the same car and lost my momentum. I maybe should have gotten up and just ripped it and I would have been fine."

The closing laps for Saldana featured one of the tightest battles of the night. After getting around Swindell to retake third place on lap 22, Saldana had a new challenge to face - reigning series champion Schatz. Schatz started in 10th and steadily worked his way forward as the night went. When he and Saldana took the white flag, Schatz tried to make his move for third.

As the two drivers entered turn three, with a lap car on the high side, Saldana dove low as Schatz tried to use the outside lane. The lapped car killed Schatz's momentum and he ended up making contact on the front stretch short of the checkered flag.

"I wasn't going to go to the top down there - I knew a lapped car was there so I checked up. The lapped cars were pushing up off the corners, I figured (someone was going to run into him) but I thought it would have been me," Saldana said. "I did what Schatz did earlier in the race and Shane got a run on me, so don't mess up again. I didn't do it and then Schatz ran into the back of the lapped car. Obviously, I did one thing right tonight."

Earlier in the night Saldana took home the quick time with his No. 71M Motter Equipment car and set a new track record with a fast qualifying lap of 12.838. Saldana's quick time, his fifth of the season, came on the first use of the Outlaws new two-flight qualifying format. He is now the leading qualifier on the season.

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Announces New Two-Flight Qualifying Program

Qualifying format will be in effect for 32-car-or-more fields

CONCORD, N.C. - June 11, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series announced today a new two-flight qualifying format for when there are 32 or more cars competing at an event. The long-planned update comes after months of consultation with team owners and competitors.

"We are excited to be able to finally implement this in the series," said World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers. "We believe this format will help to minimize the effect of a changing race track on qualifying and will create a more equitable playing field for all of our competitors."

The two-flight qualifying will be in place when the series has 32 or more cars; the procedure will otherwise remain the same as it has been all season. Under the new format, the field of cars will be split into two flights based on the pill draw. The first half of the draw will comprise Flight A and the second half of the draw Flight B. Flight A will qualify, then Flight B, which will create two qualifying results.

Heats 1 and 2 will be lined up by times from Flight A, with four cars inverted, and the top five finishers transfer to the A-Main. Heats 3 and 4 will be from Flight B. Heat winners and the top two fastest qualifiers in each Flight that made the transfer go to the Dash. The fastest car of the night will still be awarded quick time and one championship point.

During Dash inversion draw for all events, drivers will see the removal of the 8 pill, leaving the 0, 4 and 6.

Two Last Chance Showdown lineups will be based on corresponding qualifying Flights and Heats.

This update goes into effect immediately.

"As a series we are constantly evaluating how to improve the racing experience for our competitors and fans," Reimers said. "Implementing the new two-flight procedure now allows us to improve the experience for everyone involved immediately. We look forward to seeing the improvements in place this weekend."

Additionally, at 49 or more cars, the series will add two Heat races for a total of six. At 61 or more cars, a second C-Main will be added.

This two-flight qualifying accompanies a 20-or-fewer cars format that was introduced earlier this season. Under that format, pill draw and qualifying proceed as normal. The entire field is then divided into two Heat races with the top-four inverted. The winners of those Heat races and the next 2 fastest qualifiers that finish in the top six transfer to the Dash. The remaining cars are split into two qualifiers lined up by Heat finish. The winner and next two fastest qualifiers that finish in the top six, from the qualifier races make up the remaining Dash field.

At A Glance: Outlaws Take on One New and Two Familiar Tracks This Week

The series takes on Crawford County Speedway for the first time ever and then moves on to historic Knoxville Raceway and longtime Outlaw favorite, Husets Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - June 8, 2015 - This week the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on two familiar tracks and makes its first ever appearance at another.

First up on Friday is the inaugural appearance of the Outlaws at Crawford County Speedway, a semi-banked, 3/8 mile oval in Denison, Iowa. The track is one of five new tracks to welcome the Outlaws this season and will be the sixth track in the Hawkeye State to welcome the series since its inception in 1978.

Following that, the series takes on historic Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway on Saturday for the first time in 2015. Brad Sweet was victorious at last year's Mediacom Shootout while Donny Schatz, the eight-time Knoxville Nationals champion, will be looking for his first spring race win at Knoxville since 2013.

The Outlaws close out the weekend on Sunday at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D. Schatz, the current series points leader, is the last active driver to win at the track - that win came in 2007. Mark Dobmeier, a Grand Forks, North Dakota-native, outlasted the Outlaws last season to score his third career series win and second Outlaws win at Huset's.

Great seats remain for all three events this week.

Danny Lasoski Gets 90th Career Win at NAPA Auto Parts Outlaw Showdown at I-80 Speedway

Fights fierce battle with Schatz, Brown and Madsen to score the win

 

 

GREENWOOD, Neb. - June 5, 2015 - It was nearly two and a half years in the making, but Danny Lasoski finally scored his 90th career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory after he won Friday night at the NAPA Auto Parts Outlaw Showdown at I-80 Speedway.

The win did not come easy, as Lasoski, who last won an Outlaws event in February 2013, waged a fierce battle with Donny Schatz in the feature's closing laps.

"It's really special," said Lasoski, the 2001 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion. "Especially here at I-80 Speedway. A lot of hometown fans here."

In a scene reminiscent of the Outlaws event at Kokomo last Wednesday night, Schatz made it very difficult for the eventual winner. From a 13th place starting position, the reigning series champion, charged late, landing in fifth by lap 20 and then advancing four positions over the next five laps.

As the feature halted on lap 26 for an open red, Schatz sat in second behind Lasoski's No. 2 GoMuddy.com car.

"We knew if he had passed as many cars as he did, he had to be pretty good," Lasoski said of Schatz. "I was just going to try to stay in my line and do the best I could and here he came just like always."

When they returned to green, Lasoski pulled ahead. On the next lap, Schatz looked high off of turn four, but Lasoski blocked the line. The next time around, Schatz pulled the same move, but when Lasoski pulled high, Schatz crossed over on the bottom. With Lasoski on breathing down his neck of him, Schatz led laps 28 and 29. As the two drivers made the final circuit, Lasoski battled back around Schatz to take over the led. Off of turn four Schatz tried again to retake the position but wasn't able to make it work.

Lasoski took the checkered flag with .077 seconds between him and Schatz.

"Racing that 15, Donny Schatz is a class act," Lasoski said. That's the only guy in America you can run side-by-side with and you don't have to worry about him."

Schatz, who finished in second, took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award after advancing forward 11 positions.

"I did my best," Schatz said. "I respect my elders but I wish I'd have moved him out of the way a little bit. I really would have liked to have gotten a win tonight."

Schatz and his Bad Boy Buggies team overcame adversity early on in the night that led to a late qualifying run and penalty.

"That's what's expected of this Bad Boy Buggies team. They're no slouches - they're the best in the infield," Schatz said. "I get to drive the best racecar in the pit area. It's expected of us to win races and do good. No matter where we start, we've got to get results. Tonight was a good night. I didn't feel like we wanted to but we were able to make something out of it and had the opportunity to race for a win. That's all you can ask for."

Kerry Madsen led the race early on in the night and after Lasoski took over the lead, he battled Brian Brown to hold onto the spot as Jason Sides gained ground in third. As the feature wore on and Schatz made his charge, Sides slid back to fourth, trading the position with Shane Stewart through the final laps. On the final restart after the open red, Sides lined up behind Stewart. He quickly moved back into fourth and set his sights on Brown.

"(Brian Brown) I think he may have missed the bottom of three and four," Sides said. "He had been running kind of high and turning it down but I think he may have kind of hit some ruts and pushed up and we snuck underneath him."

It was the eighth top-five finish of the season for Sides and his No. 7 Wetherington Tractor Service/VRP Shocks team.

Schatz again expanded his lead in the championship standings to 145 over second place Shane Stewart.

Joey Saldana Breaks Through at Kokomo, Scores First Win of 2015

Holds off Donny Schatz and NASCAR star Kyle Larson in his home state of Indiana

 

 

KOKOMO, Ind. - June 3, 2015 - It had been nearly nine months since Joey Saldana last stood in victory lane with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, so it made it all that much sweeter that he was finally able to park his car in victory lane in front of friends and family at Kokomo Speedway on Wednesday night.

"I've got a great supporting cast with me. My family… my wife Shannon and boys Reece and Ragan were here to see it," said Saldana, a Brownsburg, Indiana-native. "My dad was here. My dad doesn't see many races and he came tonight as did just a lot of people that normally don't get to watch me race. They read about it in the paper but they really don't get to see what I do, so it's pretty neat to see everybody come out and support me. And then to do what we did tonight was an awesome accomplishment."

Saldana's win with his No. 71M Motter Equipment team did not come easily.

He started the night on the pole but lost the lead to Shane Stewart before they completed a lap. Stewart hit lapped traffic on lap four and as he made his way through Saldana closed the gap. They battled for several laps with Stewart holding off Saldana. Two restarts midway through the feature, first for a red flag and then a quick yellow, gave Saldana the opportunity he needed.

He battled forward each time, taking over the lead from Stewart. As Saldana hit lapped traffic on lap 22 a new threat emerged behind him - last year's Kokomo winner and reigning series champion, Donny Schatz. Schatz, who started fourth, had battled past Stewart by lap 23 to take over the second spot. He then set his sights on Saldana.

Two laps later, Schatz was battling for the position as he and Saldana worked their way through traffic. With Saldana banging the boards at the top, Schatz looked low. Each time, lap after lap, Saldana held Schatz off. As the two drivers worked to complete lap 32, Schatz again looked low on Saldana going into turns one and two. This time, Schatz closed the deal.

He led laps 32 and 33. Then, third running Shane Stewart cut a tire down which brought out the caution. Saldana had another chance.

"You just have to try to carry your speed there," Schatz said of the restart. "I tried to go to the bottom to carry as much speed as I could. But getting into one, I must have been sleeping on the start or something because Joey got me going there early and just beat us to the other corner. I did the best I could to try to get past him and I just couldn't do it."

As the final laps counted down, Schatz looked for an opportunity. Off the final turn on the final lap, Schatz got a run with his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car but Saldana pinched him off and took home the win by less than a car length.

"Donny Schatz is the guy to beat every single night no matter where he starts," Saldana said. "All I had was the restart. I had to do what I had to do to win the race and luckily I did. He obviously had a really good car because he was right there with me coming to the checkered."

The win was Saldana's second at Kokomo and 92nd career Outlaws win. He is sixth on the all-time wins list. Saldana was also the 13th different driver of the season to stand in victory lane.

Farther back, the battle for third throughout the A main featured some of motorsports' most promising young talent - among the familiar names, Kyle Larson, Rico Abreu and Christopher Bell. Larson, part owner of Larson Marks Racing, filled out a dual role Wednesday night, as he took over driving duties in Keith Kunz's No. 67K car with Bell as his teammate.

Through the early going, Abreu battled briefly up to third, fighting Brad Sweet along the way. As he did that, the two Kunz cars, Larson and Bell, moved forward from sixth and eighth place starting positions. Through the first third of the race, the bunched up field included four cars tight on Schatz's bumper.

Then Sweet, running fourth, crashed, bringing out a red flag on lap 16.

"Before Sweet wrecked we were all about to go at it there for the lead - there was about eight of us," Larson said.

On the restart, Larson got around his Kunz teammate Bell and worked to run down Schatz and then the car he owns driven by Stewart. With seven laps to go Larson had to watch as Stewart cut down a tire in front of him.

Through the final laps he held off Bell and Kerry Madsen to score a third place finish in his first Outlaws start of the season.

"I always have a blast when I run a winged sprint car - especially here at Kokomo," Larson said. "This is one of my favorite tracks. Glad I got to come run… It was a fun race. I didn't do a very good job on the restarts taking off and allowed those guys to get out in front of me."

He thanked his NASCAR team owner Chip Ganassi and sponsor for giving him permission to run at the track Wednesday night, and Keith Kunz, who has one Outlaws win as an owner this season with Bell, for giving him equipment to compete in. He said he hopes to run a sprint car again soon.

As an owner, Larson had mixed feelings about the night.

"It stunk for Shane that he got that flat there at the end - it hurt him a lot in points, I'm sure," Larson said. "But that team will fight hard and hopefully Schatz will have a couple of hiccups throughout the season."

Schatz extended his championship points lead to 139 over second place Stewart following Kokomo. James McFadden took home his second KSE Racing Hard Charger Award in a row, advancing 12 positions to finish in 11th.

CONCORD, N.C. - June 2, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on three different race tracks in three different states in the week ahead as last year's events saw three different winners.

First up is the high-banked, quarter-mile Kokomo Speedway in Indiana on Wednesday. In a rain postponed event, reigning series champion Donny Schatz battled past David Gravel and Kerry Madsen and held off a late charging Shane Stewart to win at the track. It was his first ever win there.

The Outlaws then head west to I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska for the NAPA Auto Parts Outlaw Showdown on Friday. Joey Saldana was the man to beat last season as he stood in victory lane for the first time ever at the track.

And finally, the series heads south to Kansas City's Lakeside Speedway for the O'Reilly Auto Parts presents the Outlaws at Lakeside on Saturday. It was the 'Mad Man' Kerry Madsen who battled Sammy Swindell and Paul McMahan to take home the win in 2014.

Great seats remain for each of the events in the week ahead.

Dale Blaney Goes Back-To-Back With World of Outlaws at Attica Raceway Park

Bests Cody Darrah and a surging David Gravel to become 12th different event winner of the season

 

 

ATTICA, Ohio - May 29, 2015 - A mid-race restart proved pivotal in the battle for Friday night's Kistler Engines Classic at Attica Raceway Park, as Dale Blaney was able to battle past Cody Darrah and best the Outlaws to become the 12th different World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winner of the season.

Blaney, who came into the night as the reigning winner of the Outlaws event at Attica, picked up the quick time early on in the night and started on the outside pole of the feature after charging from sixth to second in the Dash.

Through the early portion of the feature Blaney battled with Darrah for the lead. As the two drivers came around to complete lap five, they got side-by-side off of turn four. Blaney got hung up at the top and was forced to give up his run for the position.

"I had a couple of runs on him getting into three but it was a 40 lap race and I didn't want to do anything to negate what we were both doing up there," Blaney said. "I knew the last 20 was going to tell the tale."

The caution flag flew for the first and only time of the night on lap 15. D.J. Foos got caught up with Dean Jacobs and cut a tire down.

When the feature returned to green, momentum and a mistake changed the narrative of the night.

"I just got a good restart there," Blaney said. "I kind of kept my speed up a little bit and we came to the line together but I had a head of speed going."

Blaney charged forward in his No. 1 Muddy car, taking over the lead as the two drivers dove into turn one.

For Darrah, the restart captured a familiar frustration.

"I've been struggling with my restarts here lately and I've been getting yelled at," Darrah said. "I got a little anxious and went a little too early and had to get my tires back under me and it just gave him enough time to get around me. And then once he got in front of me I throttled down and put myself in a wheel stand. Just made one bad mistake and then another one after that."

Blaney caught traffic on lap 30 and Darrah was able to close a several car length lead for Blaney. Through the late going though, Blaney held firm, and scored his 10th career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature victory.

"I was a little bit better than Cody was early but then once we got to traffic we were the same and I couldn't do anything with him," Blaney said. "I don't know how we were in the open traffic. To defend what I did last year just makes it even more special."

Blaney, a regular competitor with Darrah in the All Star Circuit of Champions, complimented the Red Lion, Pennsylvania-native. Blaney currently leads Darrah by 35 points in that series' championship points standings.

"I get to race with Cody every night with the All Stars and for him to be up here with us is really good - he's a great kid and we're going to have a great battle this year," Blaney said.

Darrah, who got his best Outlaws finish of the season with his No. 89 J&K Salvage car tonight, shared a similar sentiment.

"It felt like we had a great car," Darrah said. "We were right on him there in traffic, it's just when it slows down like this it's really hard to get grip. I've learned so much here racing behind (Blaney) in the last couple of (All Star) races. He's been kicking our butt but we're closing up on the way he gets around the race track."

If the restart proved critical for Blaney and Darrah, it was a big break for David Gravel. When the race returned to green, Gravel, who started the night in 11th, restarted in the eighth position. By the time he came around onto the backstretch he had driven his No. 7 Destiny Motorsports car to fourth.

Following a three lap battle with Joey Saldana for third, Gravel drag raced past him down the backstretch on lap 28 and then held him off as the two exited turn four. Gravel closed on Darrah in the waning laps but was not able to find a way around him.

It was the second Outlaws feature in a row that Gravel finished on the podium.

"We had a great car," Gravel said. "I wish it was 50 laps. Cody was catching Dale a little bit and I was catching them. It was getting interesting."

Of his transition with a still fairly new team for him, Gravel said, "It's been a work in progress. Everybody's been working hard to make this better."

James McFadden was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger recipient after advancing 16 positions from 24th to finish in eighth.

Donny Schatz, who finished the night in sixth after starting the feature in 15th, expanded his championship points lead over second place Shane Stewart to 105.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night for the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/i-96-speedway.

CONCORD, N.C. - May 27, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is now officially one-third of the way through its 2015 schedule. As the very active summer months ramp up, reigning series champion Donny Schatz is a man on a mission with 11 wins and a 79 point lead in the championship standings.

As the series hits this milestone in the season, here are some of the numbers that have defined 2015 so far:

2003 - The last time a driver had more than 11 wins by the end of May. Including preliminary night wins, Steve Kinser stood in victory lane 12 times before June 1 that year. Schatz has two more chances this weekend to match and break that total.
192 - The total number of drivers who have earned points at a World of Outlaws event in 2015.
116 - The difference between Donny Schatz's total laps led and Shane Stewart 's total laps led.
40 - The number of different heat race winners this season.
28 - The number of completed features out of 31 scheduled so far in 2015.
13 - The number of states that have hosted Outlaws events so far this season.
11 - The number of wins Donny Schatz has so far this season. Daryn Pittman and Shane Stewart are closest in total wins with three each. Also, the number of individual winners so far this season.
4 - Donny Schatz's win total at the same point last season. He went on to win 26 times last year.
1 - The number of times the '8' Dash inversion pill has been drawn through the first 28 races.

The World of Outlaws take on the third-mile oval Attica Raceway Park for the Kistler Engines Classic on Friday, May 29. Dale Blaney stood in victory lane at the track last season. Donny Schatz is the most recent Outlaw to win there back in 2011.

After Attica, the series heads north to I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa Michigan for the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan on Saturday, May 30. The event continues a long partnership between the World of Outlaws and NAPA Auto Parts. Fans who present a NAPA Auto Parts receipt at the track at the time of their ticket purchase will receive a $5 discount.

Make It 11: Donny Schatz Wins at The Dirt Track at Charlotte

David Gravel scores best finish with new team, Daryn Pittman battles onto the podium

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - May 22, 2015 - The 2015 season is still young but Donny Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team have made a statement about their strength and intensity. The team has notched five of the last seven wins and at Friday night's Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Schatz scored his 11th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

With 28 features now in the books, the Bad Boy Buggies team heads into the summer months with the momentum they need to try to make history.

"Keep in mind this Bad Boy Buggies team is unbelievable," Schatz said. "What these guys do every night is awesome. The adjustments that they make, what they try to do for me is pretty crazy. I get to enjoy all the spoils but it's really them that do all the hard work."

Schatz started the feature on the pole, but it was Kraig Kinser who was the driver to beat out of the gate. Kinser led through the first 10 laps and on the restart on lap 11. The caution flag came out again the following lap and when the field returned to green, Schatz battled around Kinser to lead lap 13.

By lap 15 Schatz was running away from the field, closing on traffic in front of him. He hit the traffic two laps later and began working his way through. David Gravel got around Kinser to take over second as the field completed lap 16 and then set his sights on Schatz.

As the laps ticked down, Gravel began to catch Schatz. With three to go he had closed the gap significantly.

"I figured somebody had to be there," Schatz said. "We got to traffic and there was guys running the bottom and guys ripping around the top and I just couldn't seem to make anything happen. If you're leading the race and you're backpedaling, you ought to know somebody is coming. I just couldn't find a spot to get through there.... Sometimes you win them that way, sometimes you lose them that way."

As the two drivers raced down the back straight with two laps to go, Gravel got to Schatz's back bumper bar, but Schatz blocked the line. Gravel kept the fight up but ultimately ran out of time as the checkered flag fell on the feature.

"We had a couple of shots at him," Gravel said of Schatz. "I wish I maybe had five more laps and I could have maybe got him. Donny's a smart racer, the best there is in the business and he doesn't give wins away. I just needed him to slip up a little bit but he didn't."

For Gravel, the newly minted driver of the No. 7 Destiny Motorsports car, the second place finish was the best the team has had all season. Gravel said the key to the night was making it in to the Dash. If he can do that, Gravel said, there will be more podium finishes to come.

The battle for the final podium finish was one of the more fluid races of the night. Three different drivers held the third position - first the No. 7 of Gravel then Pittman and Kinser before Pittman reclaimed the spot.

From an injury and two missed races two months ago, Pittman now has back-to-back podium finishes with his No. 9 Great Clips team following his win at New Egypt Speedway.

"We're going the right direction, that's the most important thing," Pittman said. "We've left a lot of nights scratching our heads going, 'man, we're a long ways off, how are we going to get better?' We've got a great team and we'll just keep plugging away and getting better. Our car was decent, we just got beat on some starts there. I was really good on the outside on all the restarts and on the inside I just kept losing spots. Not a bad night, not a great night. We've got some decent momentum going our way."

Pittman scored his first quick time of the season earlier in the night. Jacob Allen was the KSE Racing Hard Charger recipient, advancing six positions to finish in 16th.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action Monday night at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway. Great seats remain for the Memorial Day event. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/lawrenceburg-speedway.

At A Glance: Brad Sweet Builds Consistency through 2015 Season�s First Third

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the Dirt Track at Charlotte and Lawrenceburg Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - May 21, 2015 - Brad Sweet, the reigning Kevin Grobecht Rookie of the Year recipient, entered 2015 with a new crew chief and a goal to build consistency and success.

With 27 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series races in the books, Sweet sits third in the points and has two wins on the year - one at Volusia Speedway Park during DIRTcar Nationals and another at Calistoga Speedway. By any measure, the year has so far been successful for the second year team - especially when considering at this point last year, they sat sixth in the championship standings.

Sweet though continues to look ahead and focus on improving as the months wear on.

"I feel like we're doing a little bit better but we're not where we want to be, obviously," Sweet said. "Everybody is chasing the 15 at this point and I think for us, we'd just like to get a little bit more consistent for that second or third spot in points. Some of these tracks were a lot worse for us last year and we've done a little better this year. We're steadily getting better."

When you look at the competition, Sweet said, there are very few series competitors who are maintaining the right balance every night. Donny Schatz, with 10 wins so far this year and a perch atop the standings, is obviously one of those drivers he said, and Shane Stewart has been right behind.

For Sweet, the new year meant gelling with new crew chief Mike Carber and new crew members Austin Wenrich and Rob Beattie. The process has been an easy one, Sweet said.

"We have a good little team," Sweet said of his No. 49 crew. "We're tight with the 9 team - KKR, as a whole group, we're pretty close. We all rely on each other and work together. They're an upbeat group of guys which is good. You need that out here to get through the bad nights. They help me and I help them. We're just trying really hard and we're just trying to get better."

As he looks to build on the season's success one of the biggest challenges facing his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team is successfully getting through the grueling summer months.

"That's the time that's going to make or break you," Sweet said. "That's where the money is made, that's where all the points are made. We will just keep working hard. We're a young team - we've shown a lot of promise. We'd like to win some more races of course and see what we can do."

Sweet and the rest of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series head to the Dirt Track at Charlotte tomorrow and Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway on Monday.

Threepeat: Daryn Pittman Wins Third in a Row at New Egypt Speedway

Donny Schatz comes short in battle for the lead, Shane Stewart finishes third

NEW EGYPT, N.J. - May 19, 2015 - When it comes to New Egypt Speedway, one World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series driver stands out among the rest. On Tuesday night, Daryn Pittman again proved he is the man to beat at New Egypt as he scored his third win in the last three series appearances there.

Through the 30 lap Jersey Outlaw Showdown feature Pittman battled through traffic and held off Shane Stewart and ultimately Donny Schatz.

"You work for all these wins," Pittman said. "None of these are given to you I don't care where you start. Stats say we started on the pole and he started ninth but these races are hard to win and we haven't done it for a really long time.

"We really struggled in our heat race. It's hard to say when you come to a track like this that I've got so much confidence that we can win. We're not sure if it really helped us that much or if I just finally sat up in the sat and got the job done and drove this thing like I should every night."

It was just two months ago that Pittman suffered a broken collarbone in a crash at Placerville (Calif.) Speedway. Pittman said he felt like he was mostly to blame for the struggles the team has had since that time.

"Just having a hard time getting a feel for what I need in the car and getting comfortable in the car since I got hurt," Pittman said. "It's no excuse - this is a good team and deserves to win a lot of races and we've just been coming up short."

Pittman was strong through the opening portion of the night and built up a sizable lead as he raced in clean air. He hit traffic on lap seven and the two cars behind him, Stewart and Kerry Madsen, closed in.

Farther back, Schatz was moving forward. After starting in ninth, he got around Ryan Smith in the opening laps, then around Joey Saldana. By lap 12 Schatz had moved in to fourth after getting around Logan Schuchart.

Past halfway Schatz began closing the gap with Madsen in third. On lap 19, Schatz looked low and got the run he needed as he came off of turn two.

The first caution of the night flew on lap 22 and was followed by another caution on the restart. That proved pivotal for Schatz who worked his way around Stewart the following lap to take over second.

Five laps later, Schatz had caught Pittman. Using the middle lane, Schatz managed to get side-by-side with Pittman and at one point even had a nose on him, but Pittman had the speed coming off the corner. Three laps later, it was Pittman who took the checkered flag with Schatz in second, Stewart in third and Madsen in fourth.

With his daughter Kady in his arms and daughter Taylor at his side, Pittman thanked his family and crew for their support over the last couple of months.

"The win is great but it doesn't get any more special than having my girls up here," Pittman said. "This is the first victory lane that Kady has been able to be up here with me. So that's pretty special. They've been the only thing that's made it very bearable to go back to the motorhome as much as we've been struggling. Going back and seeing their faces, they don't care how you run."

"Hats off to this whole Great Clips team, (Kale Kahne, Kolten Gouse and Josh Heidkamp), they work their tails off. And having given up as much equipment as we've torn up this year and as bad as we've been running, this is for them."

Schatz, who had won three of the last four races coming into the night, gave kudos to his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team.

"We had it going there to run those guys down in open track and traffic," said the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver. "That was a lot of fun. The yellow, I thought we'd be alright there. I tried everything I could to get in there; he just didn't make any mistakes. Some nights you're just second, I guess. That's us tonight."

Stewart and his Larson Marks Racing team persevered throughout the night after changing not one but two engines.

"We survived tonight. (Crew members Andrew Seamans and Scotty Martin) pulled it together for me tonight," Stewart said. "And for us to end up on the podium says a lot about those guys. Wish we had a little bit more. I thought I had something for Daryn early on in the race and then the restarts kind of killed me a little bit."

Joey Saldana set a new track record during qualifying tonight with a lap of 13.317. The previous track record of 13.396 was set by Pittman in 2013. Paul McMahan took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award after advancing eight positions to finish in fifth.

Schatz Scores His 10th Win of 2015 at Weedsport Speedway�s Empire State Challenge

Sparks fly between Kerry Madsen and Chad Kemenah in battle for second

 

 

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. - May 17, 2015 - It had been 22 years since the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series last made an appearance at Weedsport Speedway but Donny Schatz looked like an old pro at the track as he scored his 10th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season in dominant fashion on Sunday night.

It was the second series win in a row for Schatz, who picked up win number nine at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, and his fourth win in the last five races.

"This team should really be standing here," Schatz said in victory lane. "There's three guys who give all their heart and dedication into making sure I get these victories. For these guys, that's awesome. I'm the lucky guy that gets to drive it. I couldn't ask for a better race team or car owner or anybody. It's just pretty awesome to be in this position right now."

Schatz led early and by lap six began working his way through traffic. Chad Kemenah, who started the feature in fourth with his Brilex/Seneca Energy No. 10H car, moved to second by lap two. Schatz built up a large lead early on but as he worked his way through lapped traffic Kemenah closed the distance - it was short lived however.

Through three restarts, Schatz held off challengers. Kerry Madsen, who ran second late in the race worked to close the gap in the waning laps, but was not able to catch Schatz.

"I didn't know what was going to happen there," Schatz said. "I felt really good in the dash and on the start of the feature I felt good in every lap. I got a little bit worse and worse and worse… The first time I got to traffic they were three and four wide. It's fun to try to figure out a spot to get through and we seemed to do an ok job there. Glad to get to victory lane for the Bad Boy team.

Schatz expanded his lead in the championship standings over second place Shane Stewart to 69 points.

The battle for second and third was intense throughout the feature with Kemenah, Madsen, Brad Sweet and Greg Hodnett battling for position. By the end, grass, and later, words flew between Madsen and Kemenah.

Brad Sweet held second, his starting spot, early on, but Kemenah worked his way forward quickly through the opening laps. On the first restart of the night Sweet briefly retook the position as Madsen moved into third but a caution flag flew before a lap was completed and the field reset.

The caution flag flew again on lap 20 as Joey Saldana spun in turn one. Madsen, who ran in fourth, took the third position from Sweet on the restart and then set his sights on Kemenah in second. As the two drivers came around to complete lap 21, Madsen slid Kemenah through turns three and four. Side by side down the front stretch, Madsen and Kemenah nearly made contact. Kemenah lost momentum as he moved low to avoid contact and he slipped back to third.

In victory lane, as the two waited to be interviewed, words were exchanged.

"I don't what that is. It is what it is. I just don't race like that," Kemenah, who finished third, said. "We'll go on to the next one and keep trying."

Madsen, who scored his third podium finish of the year with his No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels car, said the outside lane worked well for him.

"I could get a good run. I got a good run in one and two," Madsen said of the restart. "It worked well for me.

"For us, we got close to Donny there on a black, slick track, so we're pretty happy about that. Just lost a little tire wear at the end. I pushed really hard in the middle so I probably pushed too hard on the tire but I couldn't be happier for the team - we got a great result here… Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the rest of the year."

Hodnett scored his second quick time of the season and set a new Weedsport Speedway track record after a qualifying lap of 13.401.

Outlaws Strike Back: Schatz Battles Hodnett for Williams Grove Win

Scores his ninth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season

 

 

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - May 15, 2015 - Two nights after Greg Hodnett scored a win for the Pennsylvania Posse at Lincoln Speedway, the Outlaws fired back as Donny Schatz won at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

For Schatz, the win was the ninth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of his 2015 season and his 19th career win at Williams Grove.

"It's always awesome to win at Williams Grove," said Schatz, who fortuitously picked up the win on May 5, 2015 or 5/15/15. "To come to a place and everyone is so fiery, whether it's the racers, the fans, the car owners - man, that's what a guy lives off of. The intensity and the competitiveness of the sport, you don't get that anywhere else. Here is probably the finest place for that. I just enjoy being part of that."

With his win Friday night, Schatz is just the second Outlaw driver to score nine wins this early in the season. 20-time Outlaw champion Steve Kinser managed the feat by May 8 in both 1987 and 1991.

Schatz and Hodnett started on the front row with Hodnett jumping out to the early lead. Through the first seven laps, Hodnett built up a large lead over Schatz. Traffic came into play on lap seven and Hodnett and Schatz were both forced to maneuver through.

Nine laps later Schatz caught the leader Hodnett and was on his back bumper bar. The next lap, Schatz got the opportunity he needed. Schatz battled past Hodnett as the two drove through turns one and two. They drag raced down the backstretch and Schatz dove into turn three as the leader.

"Greg set a pretty good pace there," Schatz said. "You need traffic to be able to get by guys. He kind of moved all over. We were passing good cars. When he went to the bottom, I had to go to the opposite groove so I went to the top and we were able to get a good run on him and get by him."

Hodnett tried to close the gap in the waning laps, but it was Schatz who parked his car on the front stretch.

"This whole Bad Boy team did a phenomenal job," Schatz said. "It probably wasn't the best way to start the night. I'm like a stick of dynamite when things don't go good. Hats off to these guys for giving me a great racecar there. It got better the longer the race went."

Hodnett said the top line on the race track ended up being the place to be.

"We were just a tick off all night and it showed up in traffic," Hodnett said. "Donny is obviously the best in the world for a reason. He pretty much ate us up in traffic so we just have to get better and do a better job. The guys on the Lelands.com, Eagle Steel, Trone Outdoor car did a great job. It's just, I let them down."

The battle for third played out throughout the feature. Quick time recipient Aaron Ott held the position at the start of the feature but lost it as he rounded lap three to Paul McMahan. McMahan held the spot for the next nine laps until Ott fought back and retook the position on lap 11 as the two drivers worked their way through lapped traffic. It was Brian Montieth though who worked his way forward from fifth and got around Ott with six laps to go.

As he worked his way forward, Montieth, who finished the night in second, said there was one really key thing to continuing the charge.

"It is just momentum," Montieth said. "The track was basically a one groove track. All of the passes I made were when the guy in front of me was trying to make a pass and you just kept your momentum up. At this type of track you don't want to be leading as you get through lapped traffic."

Montieth, who has the last two weekly wins at Williams Grove and currently sits second in the track's 410 points standings, said tonight's run was a big confidence booster heading into Saturday night's Morgan Cup battle at the track.

"To come here and time as good as we did - that's probably one of the best times we've ever had here," Montieth said. "To race like we did, you can't ask for much more. The other two weeks we won here, we started near the front, we had clean air - clean air is a big key. Just momentum and hopefully we can keep carrying it into tomorrow."

Cody Darrah was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing six positions to finish in 16th.

At A Glance: Hodnett, Dietrich Sound Off on the Morgan Cup

After Williams Grove Speedway the Outlaws head north to Weedsport Speedway and New Egypt Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - May 14, 2015 - Historic Williams Grove Speedway welcomes the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series tomorrow and Saturday nights as the Outlaws battle the Pennsylvania Posse for the right to take home the coveted Morgan Cup.

Since 2011 the sterling silver trophy has been in Outlaw hands. Daryn Pittman, Donny Schatz and Steve Kinser have all claimed the trophy on behalf of the touring drivers.

As the Posse tries to change the trend of recent history, two of Pennsylvania's own, Greg Hodnett and Danny Dietrich, sound off on the competition, the Morgan Cup and their momentum heading into the weekend.

What would it mean to you to bring the Morgan Cup to Pennsylvania for the first time?

Hodnett: "It would be nice to do that just because it's never been done. We haven't been up to the task yet but hopefully after however many years it has been, somebody can pull through and race with us."

Dietrich: "The Morgan Cup don't mean anything. I just want to win on Saturday night. I think we're all after the same thing - just to win on a Saturday night show. We'll see what we can do - if you win, you bring the Morgan Cup with you."

Do you approach the Outlaws events differently than you would a weekly show here in Pennsylvania?

Hodnett: "Not me personally. We try to attack it the exact same way. You have to, one, show up, evaluate the circumstances, the track conditions and make the best decisions we can whether it's Donny Schatz or Brian Montieth. It doesn't matter, we still have to race the race track. That's our team's personal approach. We try not to do anything out of what the circumstances dictate because the program is pretty reliable. So we try to make the right decisions at the right time. That's our biggest objective."

Dietrich: "We try not to. We try to look at it as a regular show. More competition there obviously, just more cars that's it. There's just a little more enthusiasm going into them. The fans get really riled up with this whole Posse, Outlaw thing. That's good for them so you kind of feed into it. There's definitely more enthusiasm going into the weekend."

You have had success this season, either racing locally or with the Outlaws. How much confidence does that give you as a driver heading into the two-day Morgan Cup event?

Hodnett: "I think our biggest thing is, if you have speed, you can put yourself in a position to accomplish things. I know all of these guys have speed. It comes and goes, at least for us. Right now I think we have it. I think our motors are running really good. I think our cars are handling decent. Again, if we can just keep the speed, maybe we'll have a shot."

Dietrich: "It makes us more comfortable going into the weekend. We feel like we've got some speed. We're comfortable with our car knowing we're fast with where we're at so that transitions well to the race coming up."

See Hodnett, Dietrich and all the local and Outlaws stars as they compete for the Morgan Cup and the bragging rights that go along with it.

The Outlaws Head to New York and New Jersey

Following Williams Grove, the World of Outlaws heads north to Weedsport (N.Y.) Speedway and New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway.

The series takes on the 3/8 mile Weedsport for the first time since 1993 on Sunday, May 17. Dave Blaney, the 1995 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, stood in victory lane the last time the series was at Weedsport. Joining the Outlaws for the Empire State Challenge will be the big block modifieds of the Super DIRTcar Series.

The Outlaws then roll to New Egypt Speedway in New Jersey for the Jersey Outlaw Classic on Tuesday, May 19. Last year, Daryn Pittman wrapped up a four race winning streak at New Egypt. The streak began at Williams Grove's two-day Morgan Cup event.

Posse Pounces: Hodnett Scores First Outlaws Win of 2015 at Lincoln Speedway

Hodnett leads Pennsylvania Posse sweep of the podium

 

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. - May 13, 2015 - A dominant Greg Hodnett led an all Pennsylvania Posse sweep of the podium during the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, as he claimed his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Hodnett was the driver to beat all night. Early on he scored his first quick time of the year. After being on the fortunate end of the Dash inversion draw, Hodnett scored the Dash win and started the night on the feature pole.

Through an early rash of cautions and an open red, Hodnett held off Stevie Smith and built on his position up front. By lap 14, Hodnett began working his way through lapped traffic. As the laps wound down, Stevie Smith, in second began catching Hodnett, but ended up with the more pressing issue of Ryan Smith behind him.

Hodnett crossed the finish line in first in his Lelands.com/Eagle Steel No. 27 car.

"This feels really good," Hodnett said. "If someone had ever said we would win an Outlaw race at Lincoln, I would have told them they were a liar. I struggle here. Getting a great draw in qualifying and taking advantage of it, obviously getting a good draw in the Dash, it's huge. We were fortunate enough to take advantage of it and pull it off with a win."

Following his win Wednesday night, Hodnett now has 14 career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wins. He passes Jason Sides and is now tied with Ron Shuman for 24th on the all-time wins list.

Stevie Smith, who stood in victory lane during at the Gettysburg Clash last season, closed out the night in second. Stevie Smith had his hands full throughout the feature from the 'Kunkletown Kid' Ryan Smith. Ryan Smith nearly had him on the start. As the field worked its way through several restarts through the first third of the feature, Ryan Smith worked to hold off a charging Brad Sweet and get around Stevie Smith.

Stevie Smith expanded the gap between he and Ryan Smith in the middle of the feature but as the two worked their way through lapped traffic, Ryan Smith caught up to him with his No. 94 Wurko Group car. For the final two laps, Stevie Smith tried to hold off Ryan Smith.

"I was running my butt of trying to catch the guy in front of me and then the last couple of laps I had to worry about getting passed," Stevie Smith said. "I heard something, I wasn't sure if it was one of the lap cars that we had passed, I had no idea who it was. I thought, you know what, I've done this before, I'm just going to move up and take his air and take his groove. I'm glad I did because I think he would have passed us."

Stevie Smith brought his No. 51S Miller Brothers Chevrolet car home in second.

Ryan Smith, who scored his first ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory last October at Port Royal Speedway, had not been to Lincoln yet this season.

"It was a good night," Smith said. "I got to Stevie there at the end and I knew I had to get him when I caught him there and I showed my nose and he took my air off. Great race - awesome race track. Glad to represent the Posse."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action on Friday and Saturday as the battle between the Outlaws and Posse continues at Williams Grove Speedway. Bragging rights and the Morgan Cup are at stake as the two sides take on the historic half-mile oval. Tickets remain for the event.

At A Glance: The Opening Shot of the Outlaws vs. Posse Battle

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - May 11, 2015 - This week the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads east into Central Pennsylvania where the opening shots in the 2015 battle between the Outlaws and the Posse will be fired.

First up is Lincoln Speedway's Gettysburg Clash on Wednesday, May 13. Last year's Clash saw veteran driver Stevie Smith score an emotional victory for his team owner Fred Rahmer. After retiring the previous season, Rahmer got his first Outlaws win as a car owner and saw his son Freddie Rahmer qualify for his first ever Outlaws feature.

"In all honesty, obviously the National Open was the biggest thing that happened to me in racing up until my kid qualified for his first outlaw race," Rahmer said following Smith's win. "Stevie winning is just icing on the cake. He deserves it. I know how great a driver he is - he just needed a good opportunity."

With Smith's win, the Posse fired the first shot of 2015. By the end of the season, the Outlaws took the Morgan Cup home but the two sides fought to a draw with Posse drivers winning four events to the Outlaws' four events.

See the beginning of the fight for Outlaws vs. Posse bragging rights in 2015. Tickets for the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway are still available. Reserved tickets are $35 and general admission tickets are $30. For more information about tickets and the event, visit http://woosprint.com/gettysburg-clash.

Schatz Wins Two in Eldora Speedway 'Mother' Sweep

Second place finisher Gary Taylor scored his best ever Outlaws finish

 

 

ROSSBURG, Ohio - May 9, 2015 - Donny Schatz went six years between wins at Eldora Speedway but proved Saturday night that past is not always prologue as he swept the two-day 'Mother of All Sprint Car Weekends' and took home his eighth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"Great race team, they do a phenomenal job every time we get to the track," Schatz said of his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team. "Tonight, thank you fans for sticking with us. I didn't know if we were going to get that in. Hats off to everyone who worked their tails off all day."

Rain dominated much of the day and threatened the night's event. By mid-afternoon though the rain clouds gave way and the track prep began. A slightly delayed event got underway with Rico Abreu scoring his second quick time of the season.

Schatz started on the feature pole with his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car and held off Jamie Veal in the opening laps. The first of two cautions in the feature came out on lap five. It proved pivotal for Gary Taylor, who started the night in fourth with his Fausey Farms 1ST team.

Taylor battled past Veal to take over the second position and then held tight to Schatz through the next three laps as he tried to make a run at the lead. Schatz eventually pulled away and by lap 11 he had caught the tail end of the field.

By lap 20 he had steadily built up a sizable lead over Taylor and third place Shane Stewart. While Schatz worked his way through traffic Taylor made up some ground.

Then disaster struck for Stewart and nearly for Taylor. With just two laps to go, Stewart and Logan Schuchart had tires go flat. The caution flag flew. As the field came around, Taylor hit something on track.

"I didn't even notice it happened until all of a sudden I heard a clink and I felt something on the floor pan and I thought, 'oh man!'" Taylor said. "Here we are with a great run going and then we come around the next lap and I see the piece of metal sitting there. We just lucked out I didn't get a tire."

Taylor came into the pits for a check. He was able to retake his position.

With Stewart relegated to the back following his tire change, Paul McMahan shifted forward to third in his No. 51 CJB Motorsports car.

On the single file restart, Taylor tried to take advantage but was not able to close the gap on Schatz.

"To not have the wins at Eldora, we love to win at Eldora - to get two here this weekend is awesome," Schatz said. "The track was so good. It could carry so much speed. The times were way down there. I don't remember the last time you could run around that quick at Eldora in the whole feature."

Schatz extended his championship points lead over Stewart to 55 points.

Taylor's second place finish is, to date, his best ever Outlaws performance.

"I've got to thank my car owner and all the people who make it happen," Taylor said. "We're kind of a small team so to come here and run in the hunt with these guys is a really, really good feeling."

With his third place finish, McMahan capped off a good weekend for his team that saw a fourth place finish the night before. McMahan is currently fourth in the championship points standings, 143 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action Wednesday night, May 13, at Lincoln Speedway for the Gettysburg Clash as the Outlaws take on the Posse for the first night in the lead up to the Morgan Cup.

Six Years in the Making, Schatz Returns to Victory Lane at Eldora Speedway

The driver scored his seventh World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the season and 180th career win

 

 

ROSSBURG, Ohio - May 8, 2015 - Through the years Eldora Speedway has not always been kind to Donny Schatz. In fact, it had been almost exactly six years since the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver had stood as a winner in victory lane. Schatz changed that on Friday night though after he battled past Kerry Madsen and held off Shane Stewart to score his seventh World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"Every place we've struggled at this year and in the past, (my team has) picked up their game and come and gotten us good qualifying positions and wins," Schatz said. "This place was on that list. These guys just kept working at it. They beat their head against the wall just like I did… Feels good to get a victory here at Eldora. It's been a long time."

Early on in the night, Madsen was the one to beat. The Aussie started on the pole and held on to the lead for the first half of the feature.

On lap 12, as Madsen caught lapped traffic, Schatz quickly closed the gap. In turn four, Schatz looked low and pulled even with Madsen but wasn't able to get around. Down the front straight in to turns one and two, Schatz battled to the lead. Out of turn two, Madsen raced back and briefly freed himself of Schatz. The battle was not over. The six-time champion again got around Madsen as they exited turn four. Schatz firmly took hold of the lead this time.

"Typically that's not our deal up on top but they've got an awesome racecar underneath me," Schatz said. "To be able to race up there, Kerry must have faded there at the end but he's normally pretty good here too."

Through lapped traffic and a late race caution, Schatz held off a challenge from Shane Stewart to win the feature.

"We came in to tonight just trying to get ourselves qualified well," Schatz said of his Bad Boy Buggies team. "We did that. Get ourselves through the heat - we did that. Get forward in the dash - we did that. And try to get that win and we did that. Tomorrow is a new day. We've got to go back and try to learn from the mistakes we made tonight and try to make things a little bit better. These guys are trying to win a championship and I'm doing everything I can to help them."

Schatz's win was the 180th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of his career. He's the third winningest driver in series history. Following his victory, Schatz also slightly extended his championship points lead over second place Shane Stewart to 33.

Stewart, who also finished the night in second place, slipped back to fourth on the start. He rode there through much of the first half of the night before closing on third place Rico Abreu. Stewart battled around Abreu and then, on lap 19, got around second place Madsen as the two exited off of turn four.

In the waning laps, Stewart tried to close on Schatz but was forced to fend off Abreu who tried to take over the second spot as Madsen faded back. Neither driver was successful.

Stewart scored his 12th top-five finish of the season.

"We unloaded fast tonight and (crew members Scotty Martin and Andrew Seamans), as always, did a great job for me," Stewart said. "We're staying close to Donny - we just can't get too far away from him. That team is just so darn good. It's a testament to them and how hard they work and it's a testament to my guys at how hard they're working to try to keep up with that guy. It's always a pleasure driving that number 2 car. It's always a pleasure coming here to race at Eldora. The fans are excellent. We'll try again tomorrow."

Abreu, who already has two Outlaws wins this season, closed out the night with a third place finish.

"We've had a lot of momentum," Abreu said. "We just haven't had the finishes. Either I crash or we've had a few mechanical failures. It's just the way it goes."

Abreu said having the opportunity to race with experienced drivers like Schatz and Stewart has helped his development this season.

"I just keep getting better and better each race. I'm thankful to be here. Thank you Tony (Stewart), Earl (Baltes) for building such a great race track - it's definitely one of my favorites."
