332 - the difference in laps led between Donny Schatz, the season's lap leader, and Shane Stewart, the second highest lap leader
94 - the points separating the third through sixth place drivers in the championship standings
22 - Kerry Madsen's heat race wins in 2015 (he is the leading heat race winner)
21 - the number of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series features left to run this season
20 - the number of different winner of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature this season
7 - the number of repeat winners this season
1 - the number of first time winners in 2015 - Stewart Friesen at Ohsweken Speedway on July 28.

Pittman Holds off Schatz to Take Oil City Cup Finale at Castrol Raceway

Donny Schatz wins the Oil City Cup championship for the third year in a row

 

 

EDMONTON, Alb. - Aug. 29, 2015 - Daryn Pittman got a nice birthday surprise Saturday night at Castrol Raceway as he drove his No. 9 Great Clips car to victory lane in the finale of the Oil City Cup.

The victory was not an easy one as he battled past a hungry Logan Schuchart and held off a late charging Donny Schatz to score his fourth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season - his first in three months.

"Great team effort for this whole Great Clips team," Pittman said. "It's been a long time, way too long. These guys work too hard and are too good to stay out of victory lane as long as we have."

Pittman said it has been a frustrating year for his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team - he battled injury early on in the season and success has not come as frequently as it did in the prior two years.

"We just haven't been able to hit on anything and we just threw something at it there in the feature," Pittman said. "I don't know if it's a huge difference or not but man, my car was really good. It wasn't really good at the beginning of the race but it just got better as the race went along which is what you want."

Earlier in the night, another Schatz sweep of the Oil City Cup looked almost inevitable until rare bad luck struck the No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance team. Even then, he did not make it easy on the eventual winner, Pittman.

David Gravel led the field until the first caution on lap 10 as Schuchart worked to hold off Schatz for second. Schatz made it around Schuchart and nearly got around Gravel. On the restart, Schuchart jumped to the lead in his No. 1S Mark Pell Tire Service/Marty Thompson Investments car with Shane Stewart moving into second. Five laps elapsed until a crash involving Joey Saldana and Paul McMahan brought out the red flag.

As the field began to push for the restart, Schatz could not get his car to fire.

"Something got lodged in the fuel shutoff," Schatz said. "You could move the lever but nothing was opening."

A trip to the work area sent Schatz, who won the previous night at Castrol, back to the 16th position.

When the race got back underway with 15 laps to go, Pittman jumped to the lead with Schuchart second, Stewart third and Brad Sweet in fourth.

As Pittman began working his way through traffic on lap 20, the field bunched back up. Sweet got around Stewart for third and Schuchart tried to battle back for the lead. Another caution came out on lap 26 just as Schatz had worked his way back to the fourth position.

The fight was on with four laps remaining. Pittman maintained his lead as Schuchart tried to hold off Sweet in third and Schatz in fourth. With two laps to go, Sweet got a run on Schuchart on the front straight and took over second as the drivers exited turn two. Schuchart threw a slider going into turns three and four but as his car drifted up the track off the turn he made contact with Sweet that sent Sweet into the outside fence. Sweet then went for a tumble. A red flag came out.

Sweet was able to get his car to the work area and fixed to finish the final two laps.

Schatz moved to second position, 14 positions better than where he had been 13 laps earlier, and set his sights on the lead. Pittman however held tough on the single file restart and parked his car on the front stretch. Schatz finished second with Schuchart in third.

"Tony Stewart's guys did a phenomenal job to get me back going," Schatz said of his team. "I had a really good racecar so I had to be somewhat patient and try to get through the best we could. It's a long way to come through there but we got a lot of cars right away. I just wish we would have had a better shot or a few more laps there at the end, but that's the way it goes."

With a win on night one and a second place finish on night two, Schatz took home the 9th annual Oil City Cup championship. It is the third year in a row Schatz's name has been added to the trophy.

An apologetic Schuchart said the move on Sweet was not the cleanest he has ever made.

"I don't want to race like that and I feel bad about it," Schuchart said. "I apologize to the (Kasey Kahne Racing) guys and Brad. I'm just trying to race hard - I really want to win."

"It was a decent run. Congratulations to Daryn and Donny, they drove a great race. It was fun and we're happy to be here."

Pittman complimented crew chief Kale Kahne and crew members Josh Heidkamp and Kolten Gouse for a great job all season despite the frustrations.

"It's been hard for them to keep their heads up and I haven't done a very good job a lot of times when they do give me a good car so for us to finally put a night together and be pretty solid, qualify well and get in the Dash, it's a relief.

"We're still searching, trying to compete with that 15 night in and night out but we're happy with this win. We'll take it and go on to Skagit."

Donny Schatz Scores Patient Victory at Oil City Cup Night One

Picks up his 26th win of the season and 199th career series win

 

 

EDMONTON, Alb. - Aug. 28, 2015 - Donny Schatz waited patiently Friday night at the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway as Shane Stewart and Joey Saldana battled each other for the lead for the first two-thirds of the race. When the moment was right, Schatz struck, sliding past the two drivers, then first and second, to take over the lead and eventually score his 26th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"I don't know that we were probably as good as what Shane and Joey were but we just kept running different grooves and got to traffic and had to wait for them to make a mistake," Schatz said. "I don't know what happened but all I know is I came out of there and I didn't see them in front of me anymore. That's always good for when you're trying to pass."

Schatz, who hovered around third most of the night in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car after starting the feature in fifth, found himself in the position on lap 24 as Stewart and Saldana worked their way through traffic. With Saldana on his bumper bar, Stewart caught up with Jason Sides and made contact with the wall before making slight contact with Saldana. The chain of events was the break Schatz needed as he drove by.

The win is the 199th career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory for Schatz and fourth straight at Castrol Raceway.

David Gravel took home the quick time earlier in the night after a lap of 13.359 seconds in qualifying. Stewart and Saldana led the field to the green flag in the feature following a tight battle in the Dash.

Cautions plagued much of the feature, stopping action eight times throughout the main event. As Schatz rose through the field, taking over third by lap five, one constant was the tight battle between Stewart and Saldana. On at least two occasions, Saldana battled past Stewart on a restart only to have the caution fly before a lap could be completed.

On lap nine after several laps of racing, disaster nearly struck for the two leaders as several cars were caught up in a crash in turns three and four. As the field bunched up and the yellow began to wave, Saldana and Stewart weaved their way through, splitting cars and avoiding contact all while maintaining the battle for the lead.

Saldana finally did get around Stewart's No. 2 Eneos/GoPro/KickIt car for the lead on lap 16, as another caution reset the field. Saldana took the high line in turns one and two and Stewart was not able to close the door. He went on to lead lap 16 and the subsequent six laps.

As Saldana began working his way through the back of the pack, the small lead he had built over Stewart and Schatz evaporated. Stewart was all over Saldana eventually, briefly, retaking the lead, but the lapped traffic proved a formidable foe.

"Just trying to get around Sides and he entered in the middle of the track," Stewart said of the incident that cost he and Saldana. "I thought he was going to stay there and he just kind of kept coming and got into me. He never saw me. Typically, he doesn't go that high on the race track."

Schatz got around both drivers in one fell swoop. One more yellow flag lay ahead for the drivers but Schatz easily jumped out to the lead and scored the victory.

"We definitely didn't have the best car," Schatz said. "But with the best team these guys will definitely go back and try to make it better and see if we can't be a little better tomorrow night."

Stewart, who finished second to Schatz was disappointed for the night that could have been.

"We had a great car," Stewart said. "I had a good enough car to win that race pretty easily. I wasn't really sure what to do on all those restarts. I know Joey kept getting a run on me but I felt like if I could get off of four really well he wouldn't be able to get to me and on that last one he got to me… You've got have a little bit of luck. When you do get on the front row you've got to be able to take advantage of it. It felt like we were able to do that tonight, I just got caught up with a lap car."

Saldana was all smiles as he climbed from his No. 71M Motter Equipment car. The driver and his team have hit their stride in recent weeks and have found success with a series of podium finishes.

"It was a good third place," Saldana said. "This is a fun little race track and lap traffic was just crazy. That is pretty much what got me and Shane, and Donny just snookered us both. That's the way to goes. We had a good car, these have been the two best cars all season so we were hanging right with them tonight but obviously you can see we're third not first or second, so we've got to get a little bit better.

"The guys are working really hard. The Motter car has been fast every time we've been out, it's just trying to seal it up and get a win, the hard part. Hopefully we can do that tomorrow."

At A Glance: The Outlaws Take on the Oil City Cup

A tight points battle shapes up as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series continues the march West

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 25, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads north of the border this weekend for the series' final trip to Canada in 2015. The annual Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway showcases two days of racing action in Edmonton, Alberta.

As the series takes on Castrol, a tight battle for the third through sixth place positions in the championship standings is shaping up. Just 84 points separate the four positions as all four of those drivers are hitting their stride in the season.

Sitting third in points, Kerry Madsen picked up his first win of the 2015 season last week in Nebraska. Madsen and his team have had steady consistency through the year that helped lift them to the top of the standings. He holds off Joey Saldana, who has two wins and is the season's leading qualifier with 13 quick time awards, in fourth.

Just 13 points back from Saldana is Brad Sweet who has one more win but fewer top-five finishes than the No. 71m team. Paul McMahan, 40 points back from Sweet, enters the weekend after leading laps at both River Cities and Nodak and scoring podium finishes.

The battle continues this weekend in Alberta. Listen live for free both nights on DIRTVision.com. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets to the Oil City Cup, visit http://woosprint.com/oil-city-cup.

Donny Schatz Wins Wild Gerdau Magic City Showdown at Nodak Speedway

Outlasts competitors to score his 25th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season

 

 

MINOT, N.D. - Aug. 23, 2015 - Donny Schatz picked up a wild win Sunday night at Nodak Speedway's Gerdau Magic City Showdown presented by Schatz Crossroads Truck Stop as he found the luck and longevity that eluded others.

The win in front of a hometown crowd was his 25th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season and fourth straight series win at the track.

"This is incredible. Thanks to all you guys, thanks to my family. This is an awesome place to be," Schatz said. "Glad to be here, glad to be a part of it and I'm just damn glad to get the win tonight."

Schatz had a brush with bad luck earlier in the night. While running second in his heat race, he had a tire cut down. Luckily for him, the incident happened on the final lap and he was able to finish in third.

After a second place run in the Dash, Schatz started on the front row of the feature with Paul McMahan. Through the first 10 laps, Schatz maintained a close following distance while McMahan worked his way through traffic. As the battle heated up, the two drivers were at times bumper-to-bumper and side-by-side. Schatz looked for a line around as McMahan tried to hold off the No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car.

Lapped traffic proved pivotal for Schatz in the battle though. He and McMahan side-by-side off of turn on lap 12, split a lap car, McMahan to the low side and Schatz to the high side with the better run off the corner. Schatz took over the lead.

For McMahan, the night got much more challenging just two laps later. First he lost his transponder then his tire cut down. His team scrambled to replace the tire under caution and saw their hope for good night fade as McMahan returned from the work area at the tail end in 13th.

"I'll tell you what, we were pretty good there and I felt it going low while I was out front," McMahan said. "It was getting tighter and tighter and kind of walling around on the right rear. I was just hoping it would go non-stop but unfortunately it didn't."

Schatz led the field to green but had a new handful in Brad Sweet.

"He gave me the death slider going into one and two and I just couldn't get back by," Schatz said. "We needed some traffic."

Through a succession of cautions, Sweet continued to maintain a lead over Schatz. Then disaster struck. Sweet himself had a tire cut down as he paced the field under caution with just three laps to go. Schatz retook the lead and though Daryn Pittman tried to run him down, Schatz parked his car on the front straight.

"This whole race team does a phenomenal job making adjustments," Schatz said of his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team. "We're kind of in a learning spot right now trying some different things. Some nights it's better, some nights it's not. Tonight we could have been a little bit better but then the other night we were really good at the end of the race."

Perhaps the biggest story of the night was McMahan who faced adversity with his CJB Motorsports team and overcame it. McMahan drove his No. 51 CJB Motorsports/Bair's Tree Service car back through the field, steadily picking up positions on each restart. By the final restart, he battled around the No. 29 of Kerry Madsen for third with just two laps remaining.

It was a long and difficult road to get back on the podium for McMahan.

"We got back out, drove our ass off to get back to third," McMahan said. "In the results it's going to look like we backed up two spots but I passed an awful lot of cars tonight."

For Pittman, the night was perhaps a picture of what could have been for his No. 9 Great Clips/Sage Fruit team as he charged to the lead on one of the mid-race restarts only to have the caution fly before a lap could be completed.

"We took the lead on that restart, had a great restart. I didn't want to see that caution," Pittman said. "I wasn't sure we were going to be able to hold on to it but I had a really good car and I can tell you, just what little bit of clean air I felt, felt a lot better than being behind people.

"It's a good finish. We would have liked to have won, it would have been great if Brad could have won and we could have run second or third but that's how it goes. We'll just keep fighting."

Late Race Pass Gives Donny Schatz Win at River Cities Speedway

The Win is the 24th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season for Schatz

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Aug. 21, 2015 - With a late race pass of Paul McMahan at Friday night's Second Leg of the Northern Tour at River Cities Speedway, Donny Schatz picked up his 24th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

With the hard fought win, Schatz also scored the sweep of series events at the track in 2015. He stood in victory lane when the Outlaws were in Grand Forks on June 19.

"These three guys working on the racecar, they are the ones you should be talking to," Schatz said. "They're just incredible. (Driving the late model tonight) kind of threw me off a little because I didn't get a lot of time to talk to them in between races. They made great calls to try to make things better for me. We finally got our racecar back to where it's better late in the race and they've worked hard to make that happen."

Schatz picked up quick time to start the night in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car with a lap of 10.398.

McMahan battled past Schatz in the night's Dash and took the top starting spot in the 40-lap feature. When the green flag fell, Schatz tried hard to get around McMahan but the CJB Motorsports driver held the position.

Through several cautions in the early going, a bunched up field and restarts provided opportunities for several drivers not least of which was Schatz and Mark Dobmeier, the winningest driver in River Cities' history.

Joey Saldana had taken over the second position from Schatz in his No. 71m Motter Equipment car on an early restart. When the field came to green following a caution on lap 17, the second, third and fourth place running cars of Saldana, Schatz and Dobmeier bunched up and set up a three-way battle for position. Schatz and Saldana battled side-by-side on the restart and through the succeeding lap. Advantage to Schatz as Dobmeier rode the cushion at the top around Saldana.

"We had a really good car and I gave it away on that restart there," Saldana said. "I don't know what I was thinking. Running the bottom and no, I'm going to try sliding to the top. That was a total mistake on my part."

As McMahan worked his way through lapped traffic, Schatz closed on the leader. McMahan beat Schatz down the front into turns one and two but Schatz ran down McMahan in turn three, lap after lap, McMahan blocked the line and held Schatz off.

The final stoppage of the night occurred on lap 27 as Jason Sides, Dusty Zomer, Austen Wheatley and Mitch Mack were caught up in a crash on the exit of turn four. All drivers were OK.

On the restart a new face emerged. Jason Johnson, who started the feature in 16th had steadily worked his way to sixth and when green flag again flew, Johnson moved from that position to third in one lap.

The pitched battle for the lead once again returned as McMahan worked to hold off Schatz. Lap after lap, with Schatz on the bottom of turns one and two and McMahan on the top, McMahan held off the No. 15. One bobble though was all it took for Schatz to get around McMahan off of turn two. As Saldana fought back in to the top three for his position, Schatz did not look back in the final eight laps.

For Saldana, the third place finish was a solid run for his team but a missed opportunity.

"I had to work my way back up there and had a shot at second and just didn't run a smart race the whole 40 laps," Saldana said. "But it was definitely a good solid effort by the whole team. Anytime you can be on the front straightaway after a World of Outlaws race, you've accomplished something."

McMahan, who finished second to Schatz after leading the first 32 laps of the feature, said his team has been making strides to get better after a rough middle part of the season. Ultimately though, he said every Outlaws team is chasing Schatz.

"I thought I had a shot tonight," McMahan said. "You always have a shot on the front row. You just always know that that 15 car is up there chasing you down. We started to get a little free. We took a big rock to the wing and knocked the right front corner in on it a little bit. No excuses. We just flat got beat, got outdriven tonight."

First at Last: Kerry Madsen Claims his First Win of the 2015 Season

Win at Junction Motor Speedway is the first Outlaws win in nearly a year for Madsen

 

 

MCCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. - Aug. 18, 2015 - After a season of podium finishes and consistent runs that had yet to result in a win, Kerry Madsen finally ended his year-long World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winless drought with a victory at Junction Motor Speedway's NAPA Auto Parts Sprint Car Extravaganza presented by Mid-Nebraska Land Development on Tuesday night.

Madsen led flag-to-flag at the track in McCool Junction, Neb. and became the 20th different driver to win an Outlaws feature this season.

"We got on a roll last year and somehow we got off it," Madsen said. "And the last month we have been working so hard to try to get our racecars better and we had a great week last week and tonight. You can just never feel complacent when you're on the front row with Donny. I was pushing hard, there probably wasn't really another line, but you're just expecting some big slide job. So every lap you drive as hard as you can. Just great to get the result."

Madsen, who came in to 2015 after a season that saw him in victory lane six times, last won an Outlaws feature on Sept. 7, 2014 at Antioch (Calif.) Speedway.

Joey Saldana kicked off the night at Junction Motor Speedway by scoring his season-leading 13th quick time in qualifying and set a new track record of 13.528 seconds. Saldana's fast lap beat the old 13.586 second record set by Daryn Pittman in 2013.

When the series hit the track for the 30-lap feature temperatures had fallen to an unusually cold 55 degrees and the challenge of the night was amped up with a sustained 10 mph wind.

Madsen and Donny Schatz took up positions on the front row. Madsen jumped out to an early lead with Schatz trying to chase down the No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels car.

"I caught it really well and got (Donny) right where I wanted him in one and two, got the slider, we had that little bit of moisture in the bottom of three which made it easy," Madsen said of his move for the lead.

He caught the back of the field by lap six and began working his way through.

The only caution of the night flew on lap 11 and proved pivotal for Saldana who spent the early half of the race in third. When the green flag once again fell, Saldana battled Schatz through turns one and two and dove low in three and four, trying a slider on Schatz's No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car for second. As the two cleared turn four, Saldana had taken over the position.

"We just tried something there through three and four and it worked," Saldana said.

Madsen again caught the back of the field on lap 18 and Saldana tried to close the gap on him. Madsen however had built up a persistent one and a half second lead.

As the laps wound down, Schatz caught Saldana in traffic. On laps 27 and 28, Schatz tried to make the move around the No. 71m Motter Equipment car for second but, despite getting side-by-side, was not able to make it work.

"We were fast there at the end of the night and were able to get up to Joe," said Schatz, who closed out the night with a third place finish. "It wasn't our best performance in a long time but we'll take it and lick our wounds and go on to the next one."

Saldana, who finished the night in second, said his Motter Motorsports team is doing what they need to and the consistency is there, they just need to find that little something extra to put them over the top.

"I felt like we had a really good car, it just came up short," Saldana said. "We'll take it and move on to the next race. We're a consistent car, we've just got to get a little bit better and a little out here is hard to do. We've just got to keep digging, doing what we're doing."

Make It Nine for Donny Schatz with Dominant FVP Knoxville Nationals Victory

Schatz scores his ninth Nationals win in ten years and 23rd World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 15, 2015 - Donny Schatz's domination of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store continued Saturday night as he led wire-to-wire in the 55th running of the event and won his ninth Nationals title in ten years.

The Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver was the top point earner coming into the final feature and started on the pole. Through 50 laps he skillfully worked the half-mile Knoxville Raceway to hold the fast line and fend off challenges. Though Danny Lasoski and Kerry Madsen made attempts, Schatz was in a league all his own.

With pyrotechnics ablaze behind him, Schatz stood on the back of his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance/J&J Auto Racing car and celebrated among his team members, friends and family and again claimed the $150,000 Knoxville Nationals prize.

"The minute I took that checkered flag I was teary-eyed," Schatz said. "To see the race team, to see the excitement in their eyes, the manufacturers, all the people we get to work with, that makes this so much more special than me just getting the biggest check and the biggest trophy and the most prestigious race of the year. It's the people that get to go along with you… when you can get them all in one spot and enjoy something like that it makes it worth living."

Schatz wrapped up the World of Outlaws 'Month of Money' with three wins.

Schatz jumped out to an early and commanding lead in the final feature as the battle behind him heated up. Joey Saldana, David Gravel and Danny Lasoski were locked in a fight for third through the opening two laps with Saldana settling in third and the other two behind.

Schatz hit the first bit of traffic on lap 10 and began working his way through. As the pace slowed, Schatz had difficulty getting around the soon-to-be lapped cars and at one point had a close call with the 19M of Brent Marks.

The real challenge though, Schatz said, was getting through the restarts - the first of which fell on lap 15.

"It's not the open race track that's the hard part, it's making sure those restarts, you actually keep right and don't miss your first corner so someone gets a run on you," Schatz said.

On the restart Schatz maintained his lead as Brad Sweet began his ascent to the podium in the No. 49 Ollie's Bargain Outlet/Razorback Professional Tools car, as he pushed to fourth. Lasoski meanwhile got around Saldana for third and worked on the No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels car of Kerry Madsen in the laps ahead. As Schatz built a one and a half second lead on Madsen, Lasoski battled past the Aussie just two laps short of the scheduled halfway stop.

In the intermission, Schatz changed gears as other teams made adjustments for the second half of the race.

"(My crew members) talked about it before we started the race and I said look, if we're going to be bad, let's be bad for the first 25 and not the last 25," Schatz said. "Let's leave it where it's at and be ready to change it should we have that stop. We decided to make that change. That's what these races come down to, making those decisions."

When racing resumed, Madsen had his hands full with Sweet, losing his position to the Kasey Kahne Racing driver on several laps. Madsen however maintained and shifted his focus to retaking the second place position from Lasoski. On lap 31 he threw a big slider on Lasoski in turns three and four to retake the second spot.

Through two more restarts, Lasoski fell off as Sweet continued his assault on the front, trying to run down and get around Madsen. On the final restart of the night, Sweet had a challenger in Shane Stewart who tried to slide Sweet on two consecutive laps through turns three and four, but both times, Sweet battled back.

Ultimately, it was Schatz who, in addition to winning his ninth Knoxville Nationals, scored his 23rd World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season. Madsen, Sweet, Stewart and Saldana rounded out the top five.

"Mentally (the Knoxville Nationals) is tougher than anything," Schatz said. "The mental part is always a tough part of racing and when you get to this race, the magnitude of it, you always look at things as if they're slipping away."

"I've cost myself a lot of races in the last month, run second a lot of times and a third. I didn't want to see that happen tonight. I was ready to race at six o'clock tonight and we didn't get to get on the race track until nine something. I was ready to go and when I was able to get in the car we were able to get solid laps in right away, the racecar was underneath me from the word go, it was fast and that gives you a lot of confidence going through that 50-lap race."

Sweet said he was disappointed he did not finish a couple of spots higher but commended his team, which includes new crew member Lee Stauffer, for a solid finish. He said the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge the previous night helped his team.

"Me and Lee Stauffer are new working together, so there's a little bit of a buffer zone, we've got to try to figure each other out and we actually hit on it and we felt really confident coming back tonight," Sweet said. "I'm excited to be up here on the podium. It's definitely a step in the right direction."

Sweet said the result is a momentum builder for his team specifically and Kasey Kahne Racing as a whole which has struggled at the Nationals in recent years.

Madsen, who finished third last year and second this year said he hoped the trend continued in his favor next year. Ultimately, he said Schatz was just consistent and mistake free.

"I kind of made my bed that I was going to run the top. We freed the racecar up to run the top in the second sector and we had a fast car but the problem was Donny's pace was hindering my pace a little bit. I would make a move and you would get tucked up, lose air, bounce around so that would always give Brad a run… I was hoping we could get Donny to make a bit of a wiggle here and there and pounce but it didn't quite work out that way."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action next Tuesday with the NAPA Auto Parts Sprint Car Extravaganza Presented by Mid-Nebraska Land Developers at Junction Motor Speedway.

Clauson, Jeffrey Help Set the Final Field for the 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey�s General Store

Bryan Clauson wins the non-qualifier and Lynton Jeffrey wins the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 13, 2015 - Bryan Clauson and Lynton Jeffrey helped set the final field of the 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores on Friday night as they won their respective features in the non-qualifier and the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge.

Clauson, who started the Knoxville Nationals non-qualifier feature in the third position, battled past Danny Dietrich early on to take over the second position and ran down Billy Alley a few laps later. Dietrich tried to run down Clauson in the closing laps but was not able to close the sizable lead Clauson had built.

"I told these guys after Wednesday night I thought we had the car to get it done," Clauson said in victory lane. "We honestly felt like if we were in the fourth or fifth row of the B we would think about coming back.

"Man, I just can't say enough for those guys. They've been busting their butts all year… We talked about getting a win here and how special it would be and how special to do it during the Knoxville Nationals."

With his win, Clauson will start 17th in the A main tomorrow night followed by Dietrich, Brent Marks and Alley.

Jeffrey was the beneficiary of being in the right place at the right time during the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge which immediately followed the non-qualifier feature.

After starting on the front row, Jeffrey led early on in the 25-lap main event. Farther back, James McFadden was charging from eighth, picking up positions lap after lap. On lap four, the Australian driver threw a big slider on Kraig Kinser into turn three to take over the third spot.

As Jeffrey built a lead, McFadden continued his run forward battling with Randy Hannagan through the middle part of the feature. He finally got around for second after a caution on lap nine. He ran down Jeffrey a few laps later and got around him with another big slider in turns three and four.

The path looked paved for McFadden until his car went up in smoke with two laps to go. Jeffrey retook the lead and scored the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge victory which locked him into the A main tomorrow night.

"For this little team to get a win and put this in the A main of the Nationals! I knew when (McFadden) went by I never quit," said Jeffrey who dedicated the night's win to Kevin Swindell. "We came off of two over there, I didn't miss much, I was right past him. That's life. Sometimes things don't go your way in racing and tonight things went our way. I'm really grateful."

"We had a great car, a great team. We've had a little bit of bad luck this year in America. This team's worked hard all year and they deserve this."

Jeffrey will start 25th in Saturday night's final feature.

With the A main field mostly set and the remaining main events lined up, just four more drivers will have a chance to compete for the Knoxville Nationals title on Saturday night. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets, visit http://www.woosprint.com/knoxville-nationals.

Terry McCarl Takes Night Two of the FVP Knoxville Nationals

Kevin Swindell was transported to an area hospital for evaluation following a crash at the start of his heat race

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 13, 2015 - Night two of the FVP Knoxville Nationals was dominated by two of the track's most prolific drivers, Danny Lasoski and Terry McCarl, who mixed it up throughout Thursday's 25-lap A main.

McCarl, who has one World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory this season, charged forward from a ninth place starting position and took advantage of a mid-race restart and a slip-up by Lasoski to take the lead and ultimately the win for his No. 24 Country Builders/TheSnowPlow.com team.

"Danny was checking out there and I was slowly reeling in Jason there - I kind of didn't want the caution because it took a couple of laps to get going," McCarl said. "I had not been on the top once but I knew Danny and Jason were running there good. I kind of saw where Danny ran the restart before and I felt really good but I didn't nail it perfect and he got away from us there and then the yellow came out and that gave me another opportunity there.

"We really nailed it on that second one. Danny got a little bit loose coming off of two and I just got a good run on him."

McCarl comes into Saturday's Knoxville Nationals final after claiming his fourth 360 Nationals title last Saturday. He has seven 410 Knoxville track championships and 56 410 feature wins at the track.

Earlier in the night, Kevin Swindell was transported to a Des Moines hospital for evaluation following a crash at the start of his heat race. In a statement released late Thursday night, Swindell's parents, Sammy and Amy Swindell, thanked the Knoxville Raceway track safety crew for their response and the many well-wishers.

Lasoski and Jason Johnson started the night on the feature pole and Lasoski very quickly established a commanding lead. As Lasoski pulled away, Johnson had his hands full with Lucas Wolfe, Sammy Swindell, Joey Saldana and eventually McCarl. The battle for second, third and fourth was intense as each driver looked for an opening to advance.

The opportunity for McCarl happened on lap six as the first caution of the night occurred after Brooke Tatnell slowed to a stop on track. On the restart McCarl made up four positions, getting around Dale Blaney, Swindell, Saldana and Lucas Wolfe.

He set his sights on Jason Johnson then running in second. On lap 12, McCarl slid Johnson coming into turns three and four as he took the lead before the two drivers hit the front straight. Next up for McCarl was Lasoski, in the lead.

On the final restart of the night, Lasoski gave McCarl an opening as he bobbled heading into the corner.

"I slipped off of two one time and that's all it takes here," Lasoski said. "When you've got the experience of the guys here, you can't mess up one lap. You've got to make every lap count. I had a driver error and it cost me.

"Out front you never know quite where to be. You're a sitting duck. I thought we were putting a pretty good pace on the restart here but it's a do or die. You're going to get slid in one and two or you're going to get slide in three and four if you miss and that's what happened. We got beat and we ran second. But it wasn't for a lack of trying."

Lasoski said despite that he and his No. 2 GoMuddy.com team with Guy Forbrook at the helm feel good about their chances going into Saturday. Like McCarl, Lasoski, the 2001 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, has a long history at Knoxville. In addition to four Knoxville Nationals titles, he has an unmatched nine 410 track championships and 106 410 feature wins.

Johnson, who closed out the night with a podium finish in third with his No. 41 Priority Aviation team, said he just got beat by experience Thursday night.

"Those guys know where to go and hit their marks," Johnson said. "I just couldn't make consistent laps one after another. I had shot at Danny there on a restart and I just never perfected the slide job in turns three and four and he drove back by. Once Terry got by me that really threw me for a loop because he was running where I didn't think anybody could be… I learned some good lessons and we'll come back on Saturday."

Another Knoxville regular, Brian Brown, put together one of the more impressive performances of the night, advancing out of the Last Chance Showdown only to charge through the field from a 23rd place starting position to finish in fifth. Brown took home the hard charger award.

"We've had a lot of luck on these nights, we've won these A-mains," Brown said. "Sometimes these are just as special as winning those. We had some good luck being able to drive up there. Being able to run the B-main helped me to know what not to do. We've always been the hunted, now we can be the hunter. If we can get our car like this on Saturday night I think we'll have something for them."

Going into Thursday's FVP Knoxville Nationals final, Donny Schatz and Kerry Madsen are tied on top of the points standings with 492 points each. Schatz will start on the pole with Madsen on his outside. David Gravel, Joey Saldana and Brad Sweet round out the top five in Saturday's feature lineup.

Shane Stewart Kicks Off FVP Knoxville Nationals with Qualifying Night 1 Win

Donny Schatz leads the event standings after quick time and second place finish

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 12, 2015 - Shane Stewart's bid for his first ever FVP Knoxville Nationals title got off to a smashing start Wednesday night at Knoxville Raceway as he led wire-to-wire and held off Donny Schatz on a late restart to score the qualifying night victory.

Stewart, who came into the night with two straight wins, said he learned a lot at Sunday's Capitani Classic at Knoxville. The experience helped as he maneuvered through traffic in the 25-lap feature.

"It's all about momentum here and you've got to keep your speed up," Stewart said. "Anytime you slow down it allows the guys behind you to catch up or the guy in front of you to pull away."

As much as momentum and traffic were on his mind tonight, Schatz may have occupied a larger space.

"The 15 is coming," is what Stewart said he was thinking on the final restart of the night with ten laps to go. The two drivers have spent much of the 2015 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season battling each other.

"I knew that my car was pretty good around the top and when you're out leading here sometimes it's the worst spot to be. Of course, when the caution comes out, you just try to hit your marks. It was a heated race, there were 10 laps left. These races, 25 laps, the laps click off pretty quick."

All week at Knoxville, Stewart's car is sporting a special paint scheme honoring retiring NASCAR star Jeff Gordon and his early sprint car career as well as the children's cancer charity Kick-It which Gordon's foundation is heavily involved in.

"Just really happy for everybody with Kick-It and really cool to have (Jeff Gordon) in the house and witness us winning it," Stewart said. "Kick-It has been a big supporter of mine for a while."

For his part, Gordon, a four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, jokingly said in victory lane that the No. 16 yellow and red paint scheme ran much better tonight than it did when he was driving it.

"I would have never run like that when I was running at Knoxville," Gordon said.

Stewart started from the pole in his No. 16 Kick-It/Eneos car and out powered Daryn Pittman and Wayne Johnson in the early going. Sheldon Haudenschild charged early as he battled up to fourth at one point in the opening laps before he fell back.

It was Schatz and Gravel though who were on the move as the feature wore on. Schatz took over fourth in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car on lap 7 after he started the night in eighth. Gravel, who started on Schatz's inside, threw a couple of sliders on Ian Madsen to take over fifth just a lap after Schatz took the fourth position.

Stewart hit traffic on lap eight and he sliced and diced his way through, keeping that all important momentum going.

The crucial moment of the race came on lap 15 as the caution flag flew for the No. 18 of Madsen. On the restart, Johnson, then in second, tried a slider on Stewart that did not work. Schatz used the move to get around Johnson and then Gravel followed that up with a big move around Pittman and Johnson for third. Schatz began running down Stewart in the closing laps of the feature but he ran out of time.

"It was good - it gave us a chance to get with Shane there, keep pace with him and we really did," Schatz said of the restart. "We kept trying to do some things different, move around on the race track, I just couldn't seem to get any faster by moving around."

"It's a solid night, all you can ask for. We had an awesome racecar, drew a decent pill which is always very important when you come here with that many cars. Making it through that heat race here is ultimately important and we were able to get that."

Following night one, Schatz leads the Knoxville points standings with 492 points over second place Gravel, who has 485 points. Paul McMahan, Sheldon Haudenschild and Shane Stewart round out the top five positions.

For Gravel, the night was a big momentum booster for his No. 7 Destiny Motorsports team. Gravel said they have struggled of late trying to get a good balance for the car.

"Sprint car racing is a tough sport," Gravel said. "I haven't run a full season in the same car in three years. It's really hard for me. Right now we're definitely gaining on things - motor program and car and I think we figured a couple of things out."

He said they have a little work to do in the next couple of days as they prepare for Saturday's final but he is happy with where they are at.

Stewart said as he looks toward Saturday and the finals of the Knoxville Nationals, the win tonight is what he and his team need as they face the prospect of running down a familiar foe in Saturday's final.

"Anytime you can get a win at a big event like this it feels good," Stewart said. "We've been chasing the 15 car all year long and it looks like we're going to be chasing him come Saturday."

The 55th FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores continues tomorrow night with the second qualifying race. To find out more information and to learn how to buy tickets, visit http://www.woosprint.com/knoxville-nationals.

At A Glance: The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Takes on the 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey?s General Store

Donny Schatz leads the way as the winner of eight of the last nine Knoxville Nationals

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 11, 2015 - The biggest week in sprint car racing is here as the greatest drivers from around the world converge on Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway for the 55th Annual FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store, August 12 to 15.

Donny Schatz, the reigning World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and eight time Knoxville Nationals winner, leads the way into the annual event.

As Schatz looks for his fifth straight Nationals win and ninth in 10 years, his fellow Outlaws competitors look to unseat the champion. Schatz knows how to win but he is coy as the Outlaws sound off on Donny and Knoxville.

Donny Schatz, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 Knoxville Nationals Winner, No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

Well, I'm obviously not going to tell you! Consistency really helps, the way you run all year long leading into that race. It's obviously the granddaddy of our whole season so you want to make sure that you capitalize on every opportunity that you have. This race team has done a great job of doing that over the years but things change every day, so you have to adapt to the changes. We're hoping that we can do that better than everybody else.

What does it mean for you as a driver to win Nationals and how has that changed over the years?

Not winning it is probably one of the hardest things. It really doesn't owe anybody anything. You have to earn its respect. I firmly believe you have to lose it before you learn how to win it. It's a whole different mindset at that place. You have to be prepared to be in the right position at the right time is what it's all about. We've got to prepare the best we can to put ourselves in the best position we can.

Jacob Allen, No. 1a Mark Pell Tire Service/Marty Thompson Investments, Shark Racing

This is the 25th anniversary of your father, Bobby Allen's Knoxville Nationals win. What does that history mean to you, your team and your family?

It means a lot. It's really special knowing my dad had won the Knoxville Nationals, the biggest sprint car race that you can win. To him, when you talk to him, it almost doesn't seem as big as what it is to the fans and the competitors who know about my dad winning that race. But it is really special. We take his knowledge and what we know from being on the road the last couple of years, and go to Knoxville with everything we've got and hope to be in the show on Saturday.

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

You want to do good throughout the whole program. You start out qualifying Wednesday night and you've got to go out and run a good qualifying lap. In the Heat race you want to run where you have to to lock yourself in the show. You've got to go there with a good setup, your motor has to be running good and you've got to be driving good.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

Donny is great. Their team is great. Everything about their program is great. That's all out of my reach. The only thing that prevents them from winning is somebody just has to be better.

David Gravel, No. 7 Destiny Motorsports, Destiny Motorsports

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

I just try to treat it like any other race. It's important for you to qualify good and then the next feat is to get through that heat race. You try to keep your cool. If you can get in the feature after qualifying good, you're setup for an easy week. Then again, if you qualify bad you could win your heat race and do good in the feature and you're in the ballgame too. It's not easy for sure.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

You've just got to put yourself in good position. A lot of guys believe if you're in the right position and you do your job, you can beat him. You've just got to get locked in and start up front and see what you can do from there. It's a long race and a lot of things can happen. You've just got to run your own race and if you do your job and your team does their job, you should have a chance at it.

Jason Johnson, No. 41 Priority Aviation/Mesilla Valley Transportation, Jason Johnson Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

Well, it's probably just the whole package. Not only do you have to have great racecars and good engines, you've got to be surrounded by great people. When it's all working and clicking, it's a lot of fun. That's the key to success.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

I think everybody knows he's the class of the field whether it's at Knoxville or anywhere right now. It's going to be tough. For somebody to beat Donny on his game, they're going to have to be remarkable. To beat Donny because luck or something didn't fall his way in the last 10 or 12 years, that's a different story. There's no doubt he's the guy to beat.

Kraig Kinser, 2005 Knoxville Nationals Winner, No. 11k Mesilla Valley Transportation, Steve Kinser Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

You've got to be solid going in there. You've got to know where your program is at. You've got to have luck on your side. You've got to put together multiple great nights to have a chance there. With as stout as the competition is, any little thing can hurt your chances.

You are one of the only Outlaws regulars right now who has actually won Nationals. What does that win mean to you?

To me, it means everything. It's the biggest race for sprint cars and it's just one of those races everybody wants to win. It's what all of us in this sport thrive to get to. It's definitely a special race - it would be nice to be able to back up in victory lane again.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

Like I said, you've got to have a good car. A little good luck wouldn't hurt. He's got that place figured out. He's pretty well dialed in Knoxville and coming into Nationals this year he looks as strong as ever. It's going to be extra tough. You need him to slip up a little bit to have a really good weekend.

Kerry Madsen, No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels, Keneric Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

It's just a step-by-step process. As long as you do reasonably well in that process you're going to be in a good position on Saturday. We feel like we've put all the homework in, we've had a good package there for the last two years. You know you just can't put the cart before the horse. You've got have a good qualifying night and get in a good position.

Among the Outlaws you probably have the most laps around Knoxville. How does that help you at the track?

That's a double-edged sword. Usually when you have a lot of laps around Knoxville, the Nationals are not quite what you're used to on a local level. It's a lot simpler to go to a track when you're confident - we're not going to over think or over analyze anything.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

Just do our job. If he's up in front up he's going to be a factor but you can't worry about Donny. You've just got to get everything the best you can and if we do everything right, we can be on the top of the podium.

Paul McMahan, No. 51 CJB Motorsports/Bair's Tree Service, CJB Motorsports

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

Beat Donny Schatz.

How do you do that?

That's a good question. I don't know. We go in with our same package and we've been pretty good there. It's a stressful night because you race all year for that one weekend. The way I look at it, I want my number on that board every time you hit the race track. If my number is on the top-five on the board every time you hit the race track, I'll have a pretty good weekend. My game plan is to qualify well, do well in our heat race and go from there. We know we can beat Donny - he's not invincible. There's Kryptonite for Superman. We've just got to be on our game.

Daryn Pittman, No. 9 Great Clips, Kasey Kahne Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

It's all about putting yourself in position to have a chance. That starts from your first two qualifying laps on your first two qualifying nights. That's the cool part about Knoxville - you don't luck into that win. There are just so many things that have to be right. It's not about getting your car right for one race, it's about getting your car right for four or five races, and every time you're on the race track to get good points. You hope to put all the pieces together.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

I'm not sure. We're not really focused on the 15 or anyone else. We just focus on our car and control what we can with our team. We know the guys we have to beat. You maybe watch them and what they're doing, what line they're running, what they've done during certain times of the race. For the most part though all that goes out the window and we just focus on our team and our setup.

Joey Saldana, No. 71m Motter Equipment, Motter Motorsports

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

I believe the biggest thing is to treat it like any other race. It's a pretty slow week. It is really not that grueling compared to what these World of Outlaws teams are used to, traveling race track to race track to race track. So, really it's nice to go to one track and hang out there for a week. You want to go there and run well because it can be a huge benefit for your team, especially a team like ours. It can make or break your whole year.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

There's a lot of things. I've been really, really good there and run second to Donny three times. Two of them I felt like Donny didn't have the best car. I felt like Donny had a car that could have won two Knoxville Nationals and one of them he started on the pole and I started ninth. In the other I was leading and my left front side board fell off with four to go. If you look at it that way as a driver, as a team, you look at the positives. Yeah Donny has won eight of them but realistically the car I was in two years should have won it. I know we can do it, I know we have the speed to do it. I've got a feeling somebody different is going to win this year, so maybe it will be us.

Logan Schuchart, No. 1s Mark Pell Tire Service/Marty Thompson Investments, Shark Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

Well, I haven't had much success at the Nationals, yet. The best run I've had is making the B main two years ago. I think that was just the luck of going out there one of the first times. I feel like we know a lot more now and have a better chance this year. I'm looking forward to Nationals. It means a lot to our family. It is the 25th anniversary of my grandpa (Bobby Allen) winning the Nationals. I feel like we know a lot more, we have fast racecars and we have a chance of doing good.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

I think when people start focusing on one person it just makes you worse. We're trying to make ourselves better. If Donny is dominating that much, you go there and run second and eventually he's going to mess up. You've got to go there and focus on yourself and making yourself better.

Jason Sides, No. 7s Wetherington Tractor Service, Sides Motorsports

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

The biggest thing is getting everything prepared before you go. Having your cars ready, your motors that you plan on running. The biggest thing is luck of the draw. You've got to draw early, get a good qualifying time, make it through your heat race and then you've got to be in the show to do any good. Everything goes from that point on.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

The biggest thing is you've got to be in the show. It is a long race. You've got to conserve some in the first 25 laps before running hard. You can still win it from 23rd, Donny has shown that. It can be won from the back, it can be won from the front. Your car just has to be good, you have to have a good running motor and have everything work just right.

Shane Stewart, No. 2 Eneos/GoPro/Kick-It, Larson Marks Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

Knoxville is a different animal. First of all, you've got to put down two really good laps. And then second of all, they invert the heat races and you've got to get to the top-three in your heat. If you can do that, it's a huge, huge sigh of relief. If you can do that, you've got work hard to keep your nose clean in the feature and get as many points as you can. In years past I've started in the back and gone up front and then I've been up front and gone to the back. I feel like you've got to have the trials and tribulations to win the race. We're due. I like to race there, I feel comfortable there, I like the whole atmosphere there. It would be pretty special to win there.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

To beat him you've got to be exceptionally good at the bottom of the race track. That's where he kills all of us. That's where you can cut some crazy time and catch people in a hurry. You've got to cut some good lap times on the bottom of the race track and if we can do that, you're going to have a good shot of winning the race.

Brad Sweet, No. 49 Razor Back Professional Tools, Kasey Kahne Racing

What are the keys as a team and as a driver to being successful at Knoxville?

There's a lot of things. The first thing is that you have to be fast. There are things that luck plays into, like pill draw, but the one thing that will get you out of that is if you are fast. You have a lot of different chances at Knoxville to make up points. If you have speed that's what is going to make the Knoxville Nationals successful.

Coming into Knoxville Nationals, Donny Schatz is the driver to beat. How do you approach the dominance of one driver?

If the casino were setting the odds, it would be Donny against the field. In racing, there's luck, there are lots of things that play into it. There's mechanical failure. For them to overcome that is pretty unbelievable. But at some point somebody is going to hit on something and give them a run for their money. I think you see it every year. Brian Brown, last year, had a chance to actually run right there with Donny. He did it the year before. And Joey in '09 and Jason Meyers in 2011 and Tim Shaffer beat him one year. There's always someone who is close. Donny has the experience and confidence right now. They're definitely tough to beat but I wouldn't say they're not beatable.

Shane Stewart Outlifts the Competition to Win the Ironman 55

Battles past Donny Schatz to score first ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55

 

 

PEVELY, Mo. - Aug. 8, 2015 - Kerry Madsen was the class of the field early and Donny Schatz late, but it was Shane Stewart who ultimately outlifted his competition and won the Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 presented by Walker at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on Saturday night.

Stewart battled past Schatz on the second to last restart of the night and pulled ahead through the final 10 laps. The win, Stewart's seventh World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season, is his second big victory of the season following Kings Royal.

"It feels darn good!" Stewart said of beating Schatz after finishing second to him the night before and scoring the $20,000-to-win prize. "I just can't thank everyone at (Larson Marks Racing) enough. They work tireless hours to keep this car upfront. This win is definitely for them."

Madsen, who won the 55-lap Ironman feature last season, started on the pole Saturday night. He jumped out to an early and commanding lead as Schatz pulled into second. Through an early caution and battles through traffic, Schatz worked to close the gap and find the right line.

On a restart on lap 13, Paul McMahan jumped two spots in his No. 51 CJB Motorsports car to third. The move set up a several lap battle with Stewart for the position. As Stewart threw sliders at McMahan, McMahan held third.

The battle for the lead was heating up as Schatz tried to find a way around Madsen. The two were side by side off of turn four on lap 23 as Schatz tried to make the bottom lane work, but Madsen maintained. As the leaders waded through lapped traffic, Schatz eventually found the opportunity he needed. After riding low, Schatz moved high and got around Madsen off of turn four as a lapped car blocked the No. 29 American Racing Custom Wheels car. Schatz took the lead on lap 33.

With Schatz now on top, Madsen faded through the succeeding laps which benefitted the No. 2 Larson Marks Racing/Eneos/GoPro car of Stewart, who moved into second on lap 34. Farther back, McMahan, who was running third, had his hands full with the No. 24 Abreu Vineyards car of Rico Abreu.

The caution flag flew on lap 44 which brought out an open red as the field had hit its allotted lap count on fuel. After making a couple of adjustments to tighten the car up, the return to green was exactly what Stewart needed. When the green flag flew once again, Stewart dove to the bottom of turns one and two and took over the lead as he and Schatz exited turn two.

One final caution on lap 47 flew for Madsen who blew a left rear tire after contact with another car. When the green flag flew again, Stewart was nervous.

"On that last restart I just didn't know where to go," Stewart said. "You don't ever give the 15 a second shot at you. I was really surprised that I got by him on the bottom there on that one restart and it stuck. I was waiting for him to slide me going into three and he wasn't there, so I was like, OK. There's 11 laps to go, stay calm. And with the restart, I'm like… where do I go, top, bottom, top, bottom?"

Stewart chose the top on the double-file restart and held Schatz into turns one and two.

Abreu used the restart to his advantage and threw a huge slider into one and two, briefly moving around McMahan and Schatz for second. Schatz retook his spot, but the move was short lived as Abreu took over second on the next lap.

Through traffic in the remaining laps of the feature, Abreu tried to run down Stewart, but ran out of time.

The win is the first career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory for Stewart at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55. Stewart said the win means a lot for him and his team in their first full season with the World of Outlaws.

"When you work as hard as this team works and you can come out here and win races like this, it makes them feel good and it makes me feel good that I can win races for them," Stewart said. "The 15, those guys work crazy hours and I feel like, to beat them, to be competitive with them, we've got to do the same thing. And anytime we make suggestions to put together a new car, the guys don't even second guess it, they just get it done. To win races like that for them, it definitely makes me feel really good."

Stewart, the 2005 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, currently sits second in the championship points standings, 365 points out of the lead.

Abreu, who pulled double-duty Saturday night, running both in the Outlaws feature and the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series feature, said the night was grueling.

"I'm really wore out," Abreu said in victory lane. "I just tried to stay patient and not get too intense until the end. Don't grip the steering wheel as tight as I usually do, just try to race smart - that's one thing I've really been working on."

"I had a lot of corner speed, that's where we were really good tonight and just raced really smart. Just can't thank (my team) enough. They work so hard outside the race track to build these racecars. They've been really fast this year."

The run added to what has already been a stellar year for Abreu which has included two World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victories.

A disappointed Schatz came into the night after winning the Monroe Shocks & Struts Prelude to the Ironman on Friday. His third place finish ended a 19 full-points race streak of him finishing first or second.

"You win them on the restarts and sometimes you lose them there too," Schatz said. "I had a decent racecar. The fuel stop, I didn't quite have the drive I needed after that but I didn't make any adjustments. Maybe that's my own fault for not calling for any adjustments… that's the way it goes. Sometimes you win them, sometimes you lose them."

Schatz Scores 22nd Win at Monroe Shocks & Struts Prelude to the Ironman

Battles Joey Saldana and holds off Shane Stewart to score his first win at the track since 2006

 

 

PEVELY, Mo. - Aug. 7, 2015 - Donny Schatz became the seventh different winner in the last seven World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series features at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on Friday night after he battled past Joey Saldana and held off Shane Stewart to score his 22nd win of the season.

The win is Schatz's second at the track and first since 2006.

"(My team) got to get back to the shop and get a few things sorted out," Schatz said after a damaged racecar hampered his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team in recent weeks. "We put a different racecar together and I got my feel back, so that's good. I look forward to that. What a group of people (car owner) Tony Stewart has assembled."

After scoring the quick time in qualifying earlier in the night, his third of the season, Schatz started the 35-lap feature in the sixth position. Though Jamie Veal started the feature on the pole, it was another Aussie, Kerry Madsen, who took over the lead on the first lap.

Madsen built a strong lead through the early going as Saldana was on the move. The driver of the No. 71M Motter Equipment car took over third on lap two and, after a short battle with Veal, sat in the second position by the time Madsen hit traffic on lap seven.

As Veal began to fade, Schatz, who was on the move, got around him on the top of turns three and four to take over third.

Meanwhile, Saldana had closed the gap with Madsen considerably as the two worked their way through traffic. Using that traffic as a pick, Saldana, fought his way around Madsen on lap nine for the lead.

With Saldana now charging, Schatz had his sights set on the lead. He tried to slide Madsen on lap 15 in turns one and two, but Madsen held him. The advances continued through the next lap, this time Schatz came out on top.

In short order, Schatz caught Saldana and the two began a several lap battle for the lead. With traffic in play and Schatz and Saldana working opposite ends of the track, Madsen, then in third had a new problem on his hands - Shane Stewart. Stewart, who started in seventh, was working his way to the front. By the time Schatz and Saldana were battling for the lead, Stewart picked off Madsen for third.

On lap 22 it looked like Schatz might finally have gotten Saldana. Side-by-side off of turn four, Saldana used a lap car to his advantage and held back Schatz. Then the thing Saldana did not need, happened - the caution flag flew.

After a yellow and brief red flag, Saldana chose the bottom line to restart. After a short battle, Schatz took over the lead. Saldana battled back on lap 24, but the move was short lived. With Schatz pulling away, Saldana next faced the No. 2 Larson Marks Racing/Eneos car of Stewart. The two battled for several laps, but ultimately it was Stewart to second.

Stewart closed on Schatz as the laps wound down, trying a slider with two to go, but he was unable to catch the No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance car.

Schatz has finished first or second in 19 consecutive full points Outlaws races and 21 of the last 22.

"When your bad night is second, that's not too bad but we want to be up here winning," Schatz said. "This isn't a place that we've typically been all that great so to get a quick time here tonight was awesome - to get the win was even better.

"Double file restarts, you can win them that way and you can lose them that way. I had no choice but to try to carry speed, stay on the top and that was about the only chance I had of getting (Joey) because he was pretty decent on the bottom. It worked for us tonight."

For Stewart, the second place finish to Schatz continues to be a familiar theme of his season.

"He's tough to beat," Stewart said of Schatz. "And I was going to try to make his line work and it just wasn't there. When you get close behind someone here you get a little aero tight and the way the cushion was, really close to the fence, it was starting to get tight on me."

"The good thing about our team is that we all get along, we all work hard and we're obviously trying to achieve one thing and that's to win races. You take away the 15 and we've had an exceptionally good year. Hats off to those guys and once again they're the car to beat. Hopefully tomorrow night we will be one spot better."

A frustrated Saldana said he would not have done anything different on the restart - he was just too free at the top of the track to hold off the advancing Schatz.

"Usually, I'm too tight on the top so we definitely got our car rolling really good at the beginning - I could run the top," Saldana said. "The longer we ran and the fuel load got off, I was just too free to run at the top there. And then just didn't have enough for them at the end."

At A Glance: It Takes an Ironman to win at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 this weekend

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 4, 2015 - As the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads into the final week of the 'Month of Money' all eyes turn to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri for the Monroe Shocks and Struts Prelude to the Ironman on Friday and the Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 presented by Walker on Saturday. With six different winners in the last six appearances, the third mile track just south of St. Louis, is one of the more challenging on the circuit.

Three drivers who know that challenge and how to come out on top are series regulars Kerry Madsen, Paul McMahan and Jason Sides - they are the only three current active series drivers to score victories at the track since 2010.

Madsen took home the coveted Ironman 55 trophy last season after battling past Donny Schatz midway through the feature. It was his first ever World of Outlaws win at the track.

"I'd been close to winning it before and we got taken out by a lap car with a couple of laps to go, so to finally win, it was good," Madsen said. "It's a major race and we couldn't do a whole lot wrong at that point last year, so hopefully we can get that mojo going on."

He said the track is one of his favorites.

"It's a long race and they've usually got the track pretty good so you can get up around the wall," Madsen said. "So it's definitely one of my favorite."

For McMahan, who stood in victory lane at the track at last season's Prelude to the Ironman after holding off Madsen, he said Pevely is a very demanding track for drivers.

"You've got to be very precise when it's on the bottom - you've got to be very precise when it's on the top," McMahan said. "Usually you've got a big cushion, it gets slick. They work on the race track most of the night so the race track stays good."

"The 55 laps is very demanding. If it's hot, it takes a lot out of a driver. It makes everything inside the cockpit hot and builds that much more heat in your body. Pevely is one of the funnest places and the Ironman 55 is one of the coolest races of the year."

With the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series and POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget Series also running at the track during the Ironman weekend, McMahan said it will be interesting to see the how track changes.

"It might be a little bit slicker than normal," McMahan said. "It's a fun race track."

Like Madsen and McMahan, the track is also consistently a good one for Jason Sides. Sides, who last won at the track in 2012, led laps there in the spring, ultimately finishing in second. He said he always looks forward to the trips to Pevely.

"The Marlers always do a great job preparing the track," Sides said of track operator Ray Marler and his family. "It works well with my driving style."

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.

RACE NOTES: Stewart Friesen won his first ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory tonight.

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.

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.

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.

At A Glance: An Outlaws First at Cedar Lake Speedway

The series takes on the Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown July 11 and 12

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - July 7, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the inaugural two-day Cedar Lake Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown for the first time this weekend, July 11 and 12.

The expanded weekend destination event adds to an Outlaws, Cedar Lake connection that goes back more than 30 years. The track is one of the longest running on the series schedule and this will be the first time the series has run back-to-back nights.

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.
