Stewart Friesen Scores Thrilling First Ever Outlaws Win

With Ohsweken Speedway win he becomes the first, first-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winner of the season and just second ever Canadian to win a series event

 

 

OHSWEKEN, Ont. - July 28, 2015 - After an epic battle at Tuesday night's Six Nations Showdown at Ohsweken Speedway, Stewart Friesen scored a thrilling first-ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory besting Donny Schatz, Logan Schuchart and Parker Price-Miller.

He also became just the second ever Canadian to win a World of Outlaws feature.

"It's unreal," Friesen said in victory lane. "What a great race team. This track just came right to us. Jessica did 100 percent, all the right calls. We had the Dash to play with a little bit and adjusted it from there. Wow, it's unreal!"

Friesen, who is perhaps best known for success in a modified, including three Syracuse 200 wins, came into the night subbing for his wife, fellow race car driver Jessica Zemken, who is expecting the couple's first child. Zemken also happens to be the car owner.

"She had a lot of good notes that we went off of. Just kind of worked and worked. The 410 deal is just so much different than the 360 with the weight and we just tried to adjust to keep it balanced," said Friesen, who has found recent success, including wins, in a 360 sprint car. "This JZR race team is awesome! I'm just thrilled, I can't be more proud of her right now."

The Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario-native, in just his fourth ever Outlaws start, took the initial green flag in the No. 1Z Corr-Pak Merchandising car in the seventh position. Brad Sweet and Schatz started on the front row, with Schatz taking an early lead.

A yellow flew on lap nine, just as Schatz began working his way through traffic, provided a big opportunity for Schuchart and Friesen. On the restart, both drivers bobbed and weaved through cars into turn one, as Friesen tried to take over the third spot from Schuchart. Schuchart held him off and then overtook Sweet. Just a couple of laps later, Schuchart ran down Schatz and got around him on the front straight just after the two completed lap 11.

Schatz held on to second in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car for two more laps before Friesen got around for the second position. As traffic remained in play, the battle between Schuchart, Friesen and Schatz was tight. Friesen worked to hold off an advancing Schatz as Schuchart tried to get breathing room. Lap after lap, the battle continued.

With the middle lane at his disposal on the dry slick track, Friesen was a force. Using the traffic to his advantage he got to turn one ahead of Schuchart on lap 22 and then held off the Shark Racing driver as he tried to slide Friesen through the corner. Schatz took advantage of the situation and followed Friesen through, taking back second on the next lap.

As the battle up front continued, Price-Miller, who won the 360 feature the night before at Ohsweken, was making steady progress in his No. 67 Townline Variety car from an eighth place starting position. He took over sixth on lap nine and fourth on lap 12. As Schuchart fell back, Price-Miller was in position, getting around the No. 1S for third with just six laps to go.

Through one more restart, Friesen held off Schatz and took the win. He joins Tim Gee as the only other Canadian to win a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature.

"I really didn't want to see that last caution but I was just glad there were no sliders," Friesen said.
"It was just a clean last lap there. I'm so thankful, just thankful to be there."

A disappointed Schatz, who won the last Outlaws event at Lebanon Valley Speedway, said despite adjustments his team just can't get the car to do what they want.

"So, I don't know if I've plugged it into somebody and we've bent something that we can't find or what. It's still decent, it felt pretty decent but we just need to be better," Schatz said. "(Friesen) was able to run through the middle like you need to here at Ohsweken. We couldn't really do it there until the end and I had to be right on the bottom to do it. That's the way it goes - some nights you win, some nights you lose. It seems like we've had a lot of loss here lately."

Schatz, with 21 wins so far this season and a 366 point lead over Shane Stewart in the race for the 2015 series championship, has finished first or second in 18 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 20 of the last 21.

For the 17-year-old Price-Miller, the weekend was a reminder to everyone that he is one of the sport's fastest rising stars. After a stellar first night that saw him edge Glenn Styres for a win, Price-Miller said he was really happy to have another good run against the Outlaws.

"They're the best of the best," Price-Miller said of his World of Outlaws competitors. "I'm just glad I'm able to race with them, let alone do good. Still a great weekend at Ohsweken. This track - I'm not used to the slick like this. I've never been good but Sam Hafertepe and Daryl (Turford), I can't thank them enough, they had me dialed in and I just drove the thing. Overall a good weekend."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series continues its three race swing through Canada with a stop at Brockville Ontario Speedway on Friday. It is the first time the series has raced at the track since 2011. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/brockville-ontario-speedway.

At A Glance: The Outlaws are Canada Bound

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on Ohsweken Speedway, Brockville Ontario Speedway and Autodrome Drummond

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - July 27, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads north to Canada this week as the series takes on Ohsweken Speedway on Tuesday, Brockville Ontario Speedway on Friday and Autodrome Drummond on Saturday.

After sweeping all five events in Canada last season, Donny Schatz is the driver to watch across the border. In 2014 he won at Autodrome Drummond, Cornwall Motor Speedway and Ohsweken Speedway before sweeping the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway.

Schatz enters this swing in the middle of the 'Month of Money' with 21 series wins this season, including the most recent at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, N.Y. With a steady consistency that is unmatched among his fellow competitors, Schatz has finished first or second in 17 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 19 of the last 20.

Notably, the series returns to Brockville Ontario Speedway this week for the first time since 2011. That appearance was the first and, to date, only appearance at the 3/8 mile track. CJB Motorsports driver Paul McMahan stood in victory lane that night.

Tune in this week as the Outlaws continue their run through the 'Month of Money' and gear up for the Knoxville Nationals in just two weeks.

Schatz Back on Top with Lebanon Valley Speedway Win

Answers after five straight second place World of Outlaws full points finishes

 

 

WEST LEBANON, N.Y. - July 26, 2015 - After five straight second place finishes in full points events, Donny Schatz returned to victory lane Sunday night at Lebanon Valley Speedway as he scored his 21st World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature win of the season.

"It hasn't felt like we've had a very good day lately, I guess," Schatz said. "We've had respectable finishes but this is where we want to be, we want to be winning. I guess you have to go through those stages where you're learning a little bit, get beat, try to get up on your game a little bit."

Schatz came into the night after two frustrating nights at Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday that saw him get passed by Danny Dietrich and run out of time against Stevie Smith.

The event got underway earlier Sunday evening, following an hour and a half delay for rain. The rain set up a fast race track. Kerry Madsen proved that by knocking down the old track record of 16.179 seconds, set by Daryn Pittman in 2013, with his qualifying lap of 16.044 seconds.

Schatz and Brad Sweet started the feature on the front row with Schatz holding the lead through the opening laps. As the reigning series champion began working his way through traffic, Sweet closed the gap in his No. 49 Razorback Professional Tools car.

"When you come on someone a little slower, you have to be cautious," Schatz said of working his way through traffic Sunday. "I was probably just a little too cautious."

By the halfway point, Schatz had built up a half straight lead over Sweet. With nine laps to go, the caution flag flew for David Gravel who had a tire go down and hit the wall in turn four. Sweet tried to make a move on the restart but did not have anything for the No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car.

"You always want a second chance," Sweet said of the restart. "Donny got out there in front and was able to get by a few of those lap guys but it was really hard to pass, even the lap cars tonight. We're happy to run second but we started on the pole of the dash and lost the start and Donny beat us on every start after that. We had three shots at it. I think if we'd have gotten out front he would have been hard to pass us the same way as it was hard to pass him. He did everything right to win the race and it's nice to get a good solid finish after the weekend we had."

Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team have finished first or second in 17 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 19 of the past 20.

"Hats off to the Bad Boy Buggies team - they adjusted perfectly," Schatz said. "The motor ran great. Generally when we come here we have a cooling issue (at Lebanon Valley), we can't keep it cool and it ran 180 degrees the whole race. One more thing they overcame. Glad we got it in, glad all the fans got to see a race tonight and we get to go on to Canada now."

Jacob Allen was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing five positions in his No. 1A Shark Racing car to finish in the 12th position.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads north to Canada for a three race swing. The series first takes on Ohsweken Speedway and the Six Nations Showdown on Tuesday night. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/ohsweken-speedway.

Stevie Smith Sweeps Williams Grove for the Posse

Claims the Morgan Cup for Williams Grove and the Pennsylvania Posse for the first time ever

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 25, 2015 - Stevie Smith put together a dominant performance Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway's Summer Nationals night two, as he bested Aaron Ott and Donny Schatz to score his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory in over a year and brought home the Morgan Cup to Pennsylvania for the first time ever.

The night was made even more special as Smith drove under the familiar colors of the No. 19 Black Bandit car, made legendary by his father Steve Smith Sr.

If the crowd was loud for Danny Dietrich the night before, the noise and feeling was only amplified as Smith climbed from his car to a roaring Williams Grove Speedway, happy to see a Pennsylvania Posse sweep of the weekend.

"It feels great. It seems so long and hard to win these Outlaw races. I know we won one at Lincoln last year but until then it's been a difficult task for myself to accomplish," Smith said. "I know this gets old, but I've got to thank these guys, they've given me a really, really good racecar. I'm glad it's getting old that I can say that. I'm very, very proud of them. Things went our way tonight. It's a great feeling winning a World of Outlaws show."

The win came with a $25,000 payday and brought the coveted Morgan Cup trophy to Pennsylvania for the first time since its inception.

The win held a special meaning for Smith.

"I was also happy to win on my sister's birthday. She's passed away several years ago and today was her birthday so that makes it even more special," Smith said. "You add in the Outlaws and you add in the $25,000, and you add these guys in, the crowd, it's just a really awesome night."

After polesitter Sammy Swindell was penalized for jumping the initial start, Aaron Ott was moved on to the front row with Joey Saldana. Ott jumped out to an early lead and caught the back of the field by lap five. As he worked his way through lapped traffic, Smith, who quickly got around Saldana, began closing on Ott, eventually catching and passing the young driver as the two worked their way around for the eighth circuit.

Farther back, Swindell battled Saldana for the third position. The three-time Outlaws champion got around Saldana on the back as they completed lap 15. Swindell soon had his hands full with Schatz, who started in fifth. As the cars worked their way through traffic, Schatz closed the gap and finally worked his way around Swindell as the two exited turn four on lap 27.

A yellow flag and subsequent red flag flew late in the feature. Smith maintained his lead on both single file restarts as Ott worked to hold off Schatz. With two laps to go, Schatz threw the slider on Ott as they came through turns one and two and held on to take over second. Schatz was not able to catch Smith though as he pulled away from the field.

"It feels great. It seems so long and hard to win these Outlaw races," Smith said. "I know we won one at Lincoln last year but until then it's been a difficult task for myself to accomplish. I know this gets old, but I've got to thank these guys, they've given me a really, really good racecar. I'm glad it's getting old that I can say that. I'm very, very proud of them. Things went our way tonight. It's a great feeling winning a World of Outlaws show."

Smith's car owner, Hall of Fame driver Fred Rahmer, said he thinks driving under his father's old colors and number lit a special fire underneath Smith.

"I tell you, when you're at a World of Outlaws race, you've got a lot of worries," Rahmer said. "There's a lot of great teams, a lot of great drivers and I still think I've got one of the best. We got lucky. All of our guys did a great job. A Don Ott engine has won the last two nights and the XXX cars are working good for us but I'll tell you, we've got a good group of people working on this car. We aren't the highest financed team, but we've got all good people."

Schatz said he was disappointed with his finish but knew where his team needed to improve for next time. He said he was looking forward to another chance for his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team at Lebanon Valley Speedway tomorrow.

"Running second is kind of hard to swallow. Especially as many times as we've done it here lately," Schatz said. "That's racing. It works that way, when you're good enough to win the race, you win the race and we weren't good enough to win the race. We'll work on it and try to get ourselves better. I know we're getting beat, so at least we can work on that."

Schatz has finished first or second in 16 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 18 of the past 19.

Ott, who led the first seven laps of the feature, said it was a great race for he and his No. 25 Don Ott Racing Engines car but traffic was a struggle for them.

"We were right there with Stevie the whole race, we just weren't real good in traffic and I don't think Stevie was either," Ott said. "I caught the No. 3 car there and I caught him so quick I didn't know where to go. I shouldn't have dropped down to the center but I had to go somewhere because I couldn't follow up. We were definitely good all night."

"I would have liked to have run in second and be the top-two in motors but the two cars I got beat by, Donny and Stevie, I think they're the two greatest drivers in the country. They're very tough and to finish behind them, we won't hang our heads."

Danny Dietrich Does It at Williams Grove

Scores win for the Posse on night one of the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway

 

 

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 24, 2015 - Danny Dietrich achieved something few others have this season - he passed Donny Schatz for the lead and kept it. Dietrich charged from a ninth place starting position in Friday night's Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway to score his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event win since 2013.

As big of an impediment as Schatz was, the seven other cars that started in front of Dietrich may have been the bigger challenge. As cautions plagued the opening laps of the 25-lap feature, Dietrich was stuck in ninth with Joey Saldana ahead, leading Schatz. After four abortive restarts, all reset by crashes, the race got going again and Dietrich made his move. From ninth to seventh to second in just three laps, the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native took advantage of the restarts and pushed forward.

By lap 12, Dietrich had caught Schatz and was looking for a way around. Though Schatz was able to hold him off for the next five laps, it was short lived, as Dietrich got around Schatz as the drivers rounded turn two. Dietrich pulled away from the six-time Outlaws champion.

With just one lap remaining, a caution flag flew for Brent Marks who spun on the front straight. On the restart, Schatz looked for a way around, but Dietrich pulled away.

To cheers and wild applause from Beer Hill to the front grandstands at Williams Grove, the Pennsylvania Posse driver emerged from his No. 48 Sandoe's car a winner.

"It's tough to come from ninth on any given Friday night on a regular show, let alone to come here and win an Outlaws show and win from ninth," Dietrich said in victory lane. "This is real special for that and real special to beat Donny and real special that I got my first Outlaws win here at the Grove."

"It was going to be tough, especially when Joey passed Donny. I had a heck of a restart there - I lined up sixth. I passed three cars in one and two and I thought for sure on the back stretch the caution would probably come out. It didn't and that was the difference maker. I knew I had to pounce on Joey, I had to slot him down there. Just real hard racing with Donny and clean racing. We raced each other tough but that's what you do when you're racing the best in the world."

His team owner Gary Kauffman was ecstatic in victory lane after scoring his first ever Outlaws win at the track.

"It feels great. Anytime you win here at Williams Grove against the Outlaws, it means a lot to us. And I tell you, a 26-year-old driver that I picked, I wouldn't want to change him for anybody else," Kaufman said of Dietrich.

After starting on the feature pole, Schatz battled Joey Saldana through the early cautions and eventually got around him on lap nine. After Dietrich battled around him, Schatz had a new challenge keeping three-time series champion Sammy Swindell from getting by. He ultimately held off Swindell.

If the cheers were loud for Posse favorite Dietrich, the heckles might have been just as loud for the Outlaws' Schatz as he talked about his run on the front stretch.

"He was obviously better than we were on the bottom and the middle," Schatz said of Dietrich. "The only prayer I had was to make the top work there at the end. I was running as hard as I could, he was just a little better. He did a good job. He was just more patient and probably a little better with his tires than we were and he beat us."

Schatz has 20 series wins so far this season with his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team and has finished first or second in 15 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 17 of the past 18.

Swindell, the second winningest driver in Outlaws history, scored his best finish with his new, Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based No. 1 CJB Motorsports team.

"We tried something there in the dash and it didn't work so we kind of had to go back to where we were and that probably maybe hurt us a bit as far as really dialing the car in. The guys with the CJB team did a great job. They've been giving me good cars and it's just been rolling right along," Swindell said. "It's only my fourth night in the car and we've already got three top-fives so I really can't complain. This is a dream come true for me.

"I'm just blessed to be out here doing this at my age and still be competitive."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night as the Outlaws and Posse battle for bragging rights, $25,000 and the coveted Morgan Cup trophy on night two of the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway.

Silver Cup Sweep

All Star Circuit of Champions stars Blaney, Darrah sweep Outlaws in Lernerville twin features

 

 

SARVER, Pa. - July 21, 2015 - Dale Blaney and Cody Darrah both represent the face of overcoming adversity, finding success after a year that began with uncertainty about the future.

If they had not done so already though, the All Star Circuit of Champions stars proved Tuesday night that all of that is old news as they swept the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins at Lernerville Speedway and beat the stars of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series.

Blaney picked up both the first feature win of the night and ultimately the coveted Silver Cup trophy and $5,000 bonus - his first career Silver Cup win.

"We won the first leg a couple of years ago and (Tim) Shaffer won the second leg," Blaney said. "Two All Star guys took both of them. Cody (Darrah) wins this one and two All Star guys are up here, so it's awesome. This place is one of my favorites to come to... Just to come and compete with these guys is special."

"I was kind of in a dilemma three months ago and things have worked out great," said Blaney who was unsure then about funding for his team and now has new sponsor and leads the ASCOC championship points standings.

He started the first feature in the 10th position and quickly worked his way through the field, moving into the top-five by lap 10 and then on a restart on that lap into the third position. He then set his sights on Daryn Pittman, using the high line to propel his No. 1B GoMuddy.com car around the No. 9 car on lap 13.

This set Blaney up for an epic battle with Schatz for the top spot. On a restart just before halfway, Blaney threw a slider in turns three and four and took over the top spot. The battle for the lead continued lap after lap with Schatz trying to make the high and low lines work and coming up short each time. As Blaney caught traffic he got space between he and Schatz and sailed to his second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"I had a really good car from the get go and we were working the middle of one and two a bit," Blaney said. "I was just able to get to second and get a pretty good restart. Donny's the best there is and to race with him wheel-to-wheel like we did for a while, that's awesome for our team and the All Stars. We can compete with these guys and we have a good feeling every time we run with them."

The win was the 11th career series victory for Blaney, the 1998 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, enough to tie him with Brad Doty and Brooke Tatnell for 27th on the all-time wins list.

For Darrah, his victory in the second feature of the night was a replay of last season when he also won the second Silver Cup feature at Lernerville.

"Last year in the first feature I worked hard to run last to get a good front row spot in the second one," Darrah said. "This year, that wasn't the case. It's amazing to be up here in the front, winning these two races with us two All Star guys. I've learned so much from Dale Blaney this year, following him around."

From an eighth place starting position, Darrah made quick work of the field in front of him, battling for the third position by lap five. He drove his No. 89 J&K Salvage car around Chad Kemanah for third and then quickly ran down David Gravel in second, passing the No. 7 car on the back straight as they completed the seventh circuit.

Joey Saldana was the last car standing in Darrah's way and after running down Saldana got around him as the two drivers exited turn two on to the back. Saldana tried to battle back around but was not able to make the move. Greg Hodnett made a run in the late going of the feature but was not able to seriously challenge Darrah.

The win was Darrah's first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory since the same event one year ago.

"It's been such a cool situation," Darrah said of his move to his family owned team. "Going into this year I didn't know what I was going to do and from where I'm at now, I would never choose anything ever different. You just never know where you're at one day and the next you can be standing up here on the front stretch."

Blaney charged forward in the second feature, scoring the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award after advancing 11 positions to finish in eighth. His average finish in the two features was 4.5 compared to Darrah's 6.5.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action this Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway for the Summer Nationals. The Outlaws will also be competing against the Posse for the coveted Morgan Cup trophy. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/summer-nationals.

At A Glance: Brent Marks Heads Back to Pennsylvania with the Outlaws

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads to Lernerville Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway and then on to New York?s Lebanon Valley Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - July 20, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to Pennsylvania this week to take on the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins at Lernerville Speedway and the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway.

For 24-year-old Brent Marks, a Myerstown, Pennsylvania native, the opportunity to run a select schedule with the series has been a valuable learning experience for him and his No. 19M BAPS Auto Paint & Supplies team.

After making a handful of starts with the series since the beginning of the season he caught back up with the Outlaws at Eldora and continues on into Pennsylvania.

"When we come out to race with the Outlaws we're racing with the best in the business," Marks said. "And I'm a firm believer in that you're only as good as who you race against. To get to the level that we want to be in the future we need to race against the best in the business and to get out there and see new places and learn new things, I learn a lot about myself as a driver."

In the last two seasons Marks and his team have ramped up their Outlaws schedule and found success with the series, scoring one top five and seven top ten finishes since 2014.

"The past two seasons have really helped me out with what we're doing. I've definitely become 100 percent better as a driver and we've learned a lot about our racecars. It's a whole different learning experience… you learn different things that you're not going to learn back in Pennsylvania."

For instance, Marks said, a slick race track in his home state is very different from a slick race track in Ohio. Track conditions combined with new track layouts provide new challenges in throttle management and braking he said.

The skills though aren't just valuable for competing with the Outlaws. Marks said the things he and his team learn when they run at tracks like Eldora, Volusia and New Egypt give them information that they can then take with them no matter where they go.

"That's really what it's about, getting in the car and bettering yourself."

In addition to this week, Marks and his family owned team plan to join the series in the run up to Knoxville Nationals and at the Bad Boy Buggies World Finals at the end of the season, among other events.

"Some people are content with racing locally but I want to be out there racing with the Outlaws one day - that's our ultimate goal."

Marks will look for his first ever series win as the World of Outlaws takes on the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins at Lernerville Speedway on July 21, the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway on July 24 and 25 and Lebanon Valley Speedway on July 26.

Shane Stewart Crowned at Wild 32nd Annual Kings Royal

Sweeps the Kings Royal weekend at Eldora Speedway

 

 

ROSSBURG, Ohio - July 18, 2015 - Neither rain nor Donny Schatz could keep Shane Stewart down on Saturday night as the Larson Marks Racing driver scored the biggest win of his career and was crowned 'King Shane' in a Kings Royal no one will soon forget.

"This is an awesome, awesome weekend," Stewart said in victory lane. "I don't even know what to say, it's an unbelievable feeling."

Mother Nature wreaked havoc early on as the skies opened up on Eldora Speedway just after the first Heat race of the night got underway. The rain persisted off and on for the next two hours and with track work, pushed the rain delay past four hours. By the time the track was back in racing condition, it was just past 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

Nearly three hours later and in front of packed house at Eldora, the green flag fell on the 40-lap Kings Royal feature with Tim Shaffer and Donny Schatz on the front row. Schatz dominated through the opening laps as Stewart charged through the field from a 14th place starting position.

By lap 17, Stewart had pulled his No. 2 Eneos/GoPro car in to fourth and began running down Jason Johnson for third position. The two traded the spot for the next several laps as Christopher Bell in second tried to make up ground on Schatz. Through several cautions and a battle with Bell, Stewart was in sight of his first ever Kings Royal win.

With just four laps to go and Stewart in second, Schatz's No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car sputtered and began to lose power, apparently nearly out of fuel. Stewart took the lead as the two exited turn two. Schatz tried to limp his car around the track but Brent Marks made contact with him and that brought out the final caution of the night.

On the restart, Stewart jumped out to a comfortable lead with Johnson in second and Daryn Pittman in third. Rico Abreu, who started 10th, battled past Pittman as the two dove into turn three.

Ultimately, Stewart claimed his first ever Kings Royal title, just after 4:30 a.m., and sixth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season. He is the eighth different driver in the last eight seasons to win the $50,000 Kings Royal prize. Stewart also completed a weekend sweep at Eldora Speedway after winning the Knight Before the Kings Royal on Friday night.

"I don't know what to say," Stewart said. "I just can't thank my guys enough. They gave me a great, great racecar all weekend long and I actually thought I had a legitimate shot at Donny there. I knew everyone had to be getting close on fuel. I don't know what to say!"

"This is definitely the biggest win of my career. I actually told myself coming into the weekend that this is definitely the best shot I've ever had at winning a big race. I can't thank these race fans enough for sticking around. By god, this is a late night and I'm going to celebrate."

Susie Barga, the sister of the late Eldora Speedway founder Earl Baltes, served as the Royal Sovereign and crowned Stewart in victory lane following the feature.

Just weeks after returning from injury, Jason Johnson has been proving that adversity will not keep him or his No. 41 Priority Aviation team down. His second place finish was his second podium finish since July 1.

"Three months ago, to be able to get back in a racecar was going to be a privilege," Johnson said. "To come back and already be on the podium in a couple of weeks, it feels really good."

Abreu, who charged forward throughout the night added to an already stellar year that has included two World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victories and success in other racing series. He was all compliments to the fans and facility.

"I just want to thank every one of these fans tonight," Abreu said. "You all could have headed home after it started raining and this place was still packed here. I don't know what time it is, but this is pretty damn impressive… definitely my favorite race track to come to every year."

Jac Haudenschild took home the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger Award, advancing 16 positions to finish in eighth.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action at Lernerville Speedway on Tuesday, July 21 for the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins. For more information and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/silver-cup.

Shane Stewart Gets His Knights Tale at Eldora Speedway

Dominates the Knight Before the Kings Royal to score fifth World of Outlaws victory of the season

ROSSBURG, Ohio - July 17, 2015 - In spite a qualifying draw that sent him out last, there was little doubt Shane Stewart was the driver to beat at Friday night's Knight Before the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway.

After qualifying third, Stewart won the Dash and started on the feature pole. Through two attempts to get the race started, Stewart built healthy leads on his nearest competitor. Sammy Swindell worked to catch the Larson Marks Racing driver as they fought their way through traffic but was never able to get much closer than a couple of car lengths.

In his mirror, a familiar foe emerged for Stewart - Donny Schatz. The two drivers, who have found themselves often battling in the first and second positions as the season has worn on, were poised to do it again Friday night.

On a restart on lap eight, Schatz threw a Hail Mary and drove his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car high against the wall in turns one and two. The daring move gave him two positions and moved him into the fourth spot. He battled past Daryn Pittman, then in third on lap 17 and then set his sights on Swindell who he caught and passed six laps later.

With just six laps remaining when the final caution of the night fell, Swindell tried to fight his way back around Schatz but wasn't able to make it happen. He eventually lost the third spot to Pittman.

Schatz tried to close the gap on Stewart's No. 2 Eneos/GoPro car in the closing laps but win number 21 was not to be tonight.

"I'm just really happy to be on the receiving end of having the (No. 15 of Donny Schatz) behind me instead of me being behind the 15, because it's been that way all year," Stewart said in victory lane. "Anytime (Donny Schatz) lines up close to you, you know you've got to be on your 'A' game."

"It's obviously great to win the Knight Before the Kings Royal. All these great fans here. You don't see these big crowds unless you go to the Knoxville Nationals and it's a testament to all the true fans we have that follow the sport."

Tonight's win was the fifth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season for Stewart, the 2005 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year. He is second to Schatz in both championship points and in total wins.

For the Fargo, N.D. native and six time series champion, the night did not turn out like he had hoped.

"We did everything we could," Schatz said. "This Bad Boy Buggies team did a phenomenal job and they gave me a great car - still have a little improvement for tomorrow. It felt really good in the top, bottom, middle - we've just got to be a little bit better."

Despite struggles that have plagued the No. 9 Great Clips team this season, third place finisher Daryn Pittman has seen his fortunes on the rise of late with several podium and top-five finishes. The 2013 series champion credited his team for long hours and determination to make things better.

"A win is obviously what you're shooting for," Pittman said. "But for us to feel like we were as fast as we were all night long, stay in the hunt and be right there with (Shane Stewart and Donny Schatz) is better than we have been and makes us excited to come back here tomorrow."

As the series prepares for another night of racing at historic Eldora Speedway on Saturday and of course, the coveted $50,000-to-win Kings Royal title, tonight's winner Stewart said he feels good about the momentum for his team.

"Hopefully this was a good omen for tomorrow."

Heavily Saturated Grounds Force Brad Doty Classic Cancellation

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action at Eldora Speedway on Friday

LIMA, Ohio - July 15, 2015 - Officials from the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and Limaland Motorsports Park have cancelled the 27th Annual Brad Doty Classic due to an extremely saturated race facility following weeks of regular and heavy rain showers.

With the property already saturated from over four inches of rain though Monday and another inch on Tuesday afternoon and evening, there is not enough time for the facility to dry out and be prepared.

"Mother Nature has made it impossible to park cars let alone motorhomes, campers or race team trailers," Brad Doty said. "With the continued rain and showers the past month we have not been able to get on the racing surface since July 3rd. We had hoped moving the event to Thursday would give us an extra day of drying time but thunderstorms Tuesday eliminated that opportunity. The property will not dry out in one day, let alone three or four. I would like to thank all of the fans for their support and a special thanks to all of our sponsors."

Fans who have purchased pre-sale tickets may mail their tickets along with a return address to receive a refund. Tickets should be mailed to:

Limaland Motorsports Park Brad Doty 1441 N. Cable Rd. Lima, Ohio 45805

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action this Friday and Saturday for the Knight Before the Kings Royal and the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/the-kings-royal.

 

 

 

 

At A Glance: The �Month of Money� is Set to Begin

The series takes on the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic presented by Racing Optics at Limaland Motorsports Park before kicking off the �Month of Money� at the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - July 15, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series embarks on one of the biggest weeks of the season as the series tackles the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic presented by Racing Opticsand the Kings Royal, all the while kicking off the 'Month of Money.'

The Brad Doty Classic, delayed one day to Thursday, July 16 following inclement weather, welcomes the Outlaws to the quarter-mile Limaland Motorsports Park. Paul McMahan scored an emotional victory at the track last season.

"I tell you what, it took me a little bit to collect my thoughts before I got out of this racecar because this just means the world to me," McMahan said in victory lane last season after winning the race. "Brad Doty, like I said, is my hero and I've come here many times and never been able to get a win… This takes every win I've ever won away and this is right up top."

In the last nine outings for the series at Limaland, there is just one repeat winner - Donny Schatz.

The series then takes a short drive southwest, taking on the Knight Before the Kings Royal and the Kings Royal at historic Eldora Speedway this Friday and Saturday. For the 32nd time, one lucky driver will be crowned 'King' during the legendary event.

Kings Royal marks the start of the 'Month of Money,' the four week run-up to the Knoxville Nationals that includes Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway, the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins and the Ironman 55, among others.

Since 1998, just three drivers have repeat Kings Royal wins - Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell and Donny Schatz.

Last season was notable for Swindell who picked up his most recent World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win (series win 294 for the Germantown, Tennessee-native) during the Knight Before the Kings Royal. Swindell returns to the track this season with CJB Motorsports as he begins a limited run with the series and team through the end of the year.

The big winner last year though was a driver who had been dreaming of standing in victory lane at the event since he was young - Australian Kerry Madsen. After holding off Donny Schatz through the closing laps, Madsen parked his car on the stage and was crowned King Kerry XXXI.

Saldana Holds Off Schatz on Green-White-Checkered Finish to Win Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown

Victory is first in team?s 22-year history at Cedar Lake Speedway

 

 

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. - July 12, 2015 - Amidst the jubilant victory celebration on Sunday night at Cedar Lake Speedway, the team owner found his driver, embraced him and said thank you. In an impressive 35-lap charge to the checkers, Joey Saldana erased 22 years of frustration for Minnesotan Dan Motter by putting his #71M machine into victory lane at the Wisconsin dirt oval for the first time in World of Outlaws Sprint Car competition.

Winning was far from easy. On a night when red-hot Donny Schatz, already a 20-race winner this season, earned the pole for the feature, Saldana started fourth, quickly grabbed third, then boldly charged past Schatz and into the lead on lap six with a deep run in turns one and two.

Schatz kept the pressure building in traffic until Rico Abreu slid Schatz and came after Saldana. A mechanical issue with two to go forced Abreu out of the affair and put Schatz on Saldana's tail for a green-white-checkered finish.

While the crowd held its collective breath to see what kind of move Schatz would make to try and sweep the Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown after winning the opener on Saturday, Saldana would have none of it. He blasted the top side of the 3/8-mile track on the final restart of the race and never looked back, earning his second victory of the season and the 93rd win of his career.

"I don't think you go out expecting to win, especially when Donny is as good as he is," said Saldana, of Brownsburg, Ind. "You just go out and race your own race and do the best job you can do. That's what we did tonight. I had a really good car. I don't know if I had the best car all 35 laps, but I had a good enough car to win the race. I put my car in the right spot, that's one thing I haven't been doing.

"I think if you start to worry about the 15 or the 2 or whoever you're definitely not going to win. I don't worry about anybody except Joey and the 71M. I'm either doing a good job or a bad job. It's easy to do a bad job out here, but tonight we did a good enough job."

Schatz tried every line possible on the track to close the gap to Saldana, but eventually settled for second place. It was his 12th consecutive race finishing either first or second.

"The driver gave the crew the wrong information, I led the guys down the wrong road on what we needed to do. It's my fault and I'll pay the price for it," said Schatz, a six-time series champion from Fargo, N.D. "I can't do it over so the nice part is knowing what we needed to do different to be a lot better. That's the way it goes. Some nights you win them, some you lose them. This team does a phenomenal job. They always do. I thought we had a chance for him, we just couldn't quite get there. The racetrack changed a little bit different than what I expected. I'll take the blame for that one and try again on Wednesday in the Brad Doty Classic."

Danny Lasoski wound up finishing third after some furious charges during the green-white-checkered finish. Brad Sweet was fourth after starting 19th, and Kerry Madsen rounded out the top five.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Cars kick off the Month of Money on Wednesday night with the Brad Doty Classic at Limaland Motorsports Park then invade Eldora Speedway Friday and Saturday for the Kings Royal weekend.

Schatz Edges Pittman in Cedar Lake Speedway Thriller for His 20th World of Outlaws Victory of the Season

Past two series champions slice and dice through heavy traffic to decide opening night of Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown

 

 

NEW RICHMOND, Wis. - July 11, 2015 - Daryn Pittman went high, Donny Schatz went through the middle, they slid each other at least three times for the lead with less than five laps to go in Saturday night's opener of the Cedar Lake Speedway Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown, and after the side-by-side race to the checkered flag it was Schatz standing in victory lane with his 20th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the year.

CLICK TO WATCH HIGHLIGHTS FROM SATURDAY NIGHT'S EVENT.

Schatz's season of domination in his #15 Bad Boy Buggies ride continued, but it was far from easy on Saturday night at the 3/8-mile dirt oval. Pittman earned his fourth pole of the season by winning the Dash and started alongside Jamie Veal. Schatz quickly worked his way to third in the first few laps, before grabbing second 15 circuits into the 35-lapper.

Pittman's #9 Great Clips car pulled away from Schatz on a restart with 19 laps complete, but Schatz reeled him and the two put on a show in traffic for the huge crowd. Veal hung onto third for his best finish with the Outlaws while Kerry Madsen held off Joey Saldana for fourth.

Historically speaking, the victory is #192 in Schatz's career, moving him even closer to the coveted 200-win mark. Also, in Steve Kinser's record-setting 1987 46-win season, he earned his 22nd victory of the season on July 11 of that year.

"I didn't feel all that good, I just couldn't seem to get locked down like I wanted to," said Schatz, a six-time World of Outlaws champion from Fargo, N.D., who won his fourth Outlaw race at Cedar Lake. "I don't know if there just wasn't enough racetrack there in the middle or what. You could hit it one lap and the next lap you couldn't so I guess we have a little bit of work to do for Sunday. We just got Daryn in traffic. That's what it all boils down to. You win them or lose them in traffic. I was able to get by him. He must have been right there with us because I was about half sideways from somebody at the end. I'm just glad to get the victory."

After leading the first 30 laps, Pittman was disappointed to narrowly miss out on a victory, especially after he and his team battled all night, including changing engines and the rear end.

"We had a great car all night, a car good enough to win," said Pittman, the 2013 series champion from Owasso, Okla. "The driver just didn't get the job done. Lapped traffic is what wins and loses these races. It was my race to give up and I did a good job of giving it away."

Veal, on the other hand, was pleased to earn a podium finish, showing steady improvement since he first came over from Australia in the spring to fill in for Jason Johnson.

"It was a solid night from when we hit the track in hot laps to when we rolled out for the feature," Veal said. "I'm real happy with tonight. It's like a win for us the way we've been running."

The Outlaws are back at Cedar Lake on Sunday for the conclusion of the two-day event. Fans who can't be there can watch it live at DIRTVision.com.

The last time the series ran twice in the same year at the track was 1993, when Dave Blaney, the 1995 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, swept both events - one in May and the other in July. Steve Kinser, the 20-time Outlaws champion, scored the first win at the track on July 11, 1983.

Among current, active Outlaws though the undisputed win leader is six-time and reigning series champion, Donny Schatz. He has three wins at the track dating back to 2008. His most recent win was last season's battle with David Gravel. Paul McMahan is the only other active series driver with a win at the track.

Join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for the first ever two-day Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown on July 11 and 12. For more information about the Cedar Lake Outlaw Showdown and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/cedar-lake-speedway.

Donny Schatz Outduels the Competition for Boot Hill Showdown Win

Jason Johnson scores a podium finish just his third race back from an injury

 

 

DODGE CITY, Kan. - July 4, 2015 - After coming just short of a win the night before, Donny Schatz dominated night two of the Boot Hill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park on Saturday night and scored his 19th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"It feels good to get back to victory lane," Schatz said. "This race track was completely different tonight. I didn't know what was going to happen. It got so fast on the bottom last night and I didn't know if it was going to hold up there or not. But wow, it was lightning fast around the top."

Schatz started on the front row with Jason Sides, the previous night's winner. Schatz had the lead in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car by the time the two drivers hit turn one. A caution flag flew early as Joey Saldana was forced up the track. When the race returned to green Schatz maintained his lead.

Over the next ten laps, Schatz worked his way through traffic as Sides worked to hold off Paul McMahan and McMahan worked to hold off Kerry Madsen. The yellow flag flew again on lap 16 as Logan Schuchart slowed on track.

The restart proved pivotal as Sides stumbled and held up the bottom line while Schatz and those behind him surged forward. When the field came back around, Schatz led McMahan and Jason Johnson. As Schatz worked his way through traffic in the closing laps, McMahan tried to run him down but was unsuccessful.

"Starting on the outside really helped tonight getting the jump on (Jason Sides)," Schatz said. "Had a really good car. It was awful tight there most of the race but that's a good thing for me. I try to do my best and tonight it got us a win."

After a season so far that has been up and down, McMahan said the second place finish felt good for he and his CJB Motorsports team. He credited his crew chief Barry Jackson and his team members for working hard night in and night out to overcome bad luck and find their stride.

"We've been working every day and Barry has been working every day trying to figure out what it is and I think we found some things on our CJB racecar tonight," McMahan said. "Our pill draw hasn't been the greatest, we've been qualifying just outside that front row or not in that good spot to make the dash and then you've got to start so far back. And then you've got to chase guys like Donny down. I'm just happy to actually be in the same race he was tonight. He didn't get away from us - lap traffic was pretty tricky."

After a nearly three month hiatus from the series following an injury at Placerville Speedway in April, Jason Johnson proved yet again tonight that he is back in old form. The reigning American Sprint Car Series champion, who is making his first full campaign with the Outlaws this season, started on the pole and finished in the top five on night one of the Boot Hill Showdown and then closed out the weekend on Saturday with a podium finish in third.

Johnson said the finish means a lot for his No. 41 Priority Aviation/Mesilla Valley Transportation team.

"Even though I was out, my guys worked their tails off and using the different drivers throughout the time I was out, they capitalized on the good things that we learned from each guy," Johnson said. "I'm still the same driver I was three months ago but these guys have advanced really far. I can't say enough about Phillip Dietz our crew chief and (crew members) Cole and Blaine, they're doing a good job. The team is gelling and we're surrounded by great people… I want to thank everybody for their support while I was out and I'm happy to be back."

Kevin Swindell was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing six positions to finish in 14th.

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."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action this weekend as the series takes on Dodge City Raceway Park and the Boot Hill Showdown on July 3 and 4. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/boot-hill-showdown.

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.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action on Friday, June 26 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visit http://woosprint.com/34-raceway.

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."

"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."

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.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night at the historic Knoxville Raceway for the Mediacom Shootout. For more information on the event and to learn how to purchase tickets, visithttp://woosprint.com/mediacom-shootout.

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.
