Schatz Captures His 15th Win of the Season at Nodak Speedway

Extends World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series points lead to 154 over second place Daryn Pittman

 

 

MINOT, N.D. - Aug. 17, 2014 - Joey Saldana and Donny Schatz fought a pitched battle through much of the feature Sunday night at the Gerdau Magic City Showdown at Nodak Speedway presented by Schatz Crossroads Truckstop, but it was Schatz who came out on top, scoring his 15th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

Schatz, a North Dakota native, said it meant a lot to him to get a win in front of a hometown crowd.

"It's great. Nothing feels better than that," Schatz said. "Thank you everybody here for 20 years of great support. What a race. These guys are unbelievable. Slick, sticky, cushion, no cushion, they got one hell of a racecar. It's a pleasure to drive it. It's fun to be here."

Schatz started the feature in third and quickly took over the second spot after the green flag flew. For the next 25 laps Schatz adapted to a changing racetrack, attempting different lines and making more than one abortive attempt to get around Saldana.

"(Saldana) was on the top and he got underneath us and he seen us and he started moving down," Schatz said. On lap 26, Schatz, who had been driving on the bottom of turns three and four moved to the top line. As the two drivers exited turn four, side-by-side, Schatz took the lead from Saldana and kept it through the remaining nine laps.

"You've just got to go where they're not," Schatz said. "Sometimes you're at a disadvantage leading these races when the track starts to change. The rain definitely changed the racing surface. I didn't expect it to be that quick. I thought it would blow off a lot quicker than it did. It stayed really good, you just had to get up and pound the cushion and do the best we could."

Since July 18 - the first night of Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway - Schatz has finished no worse than third. After tonight's win, the Tony Stewart Racing driver has 12 straight podium finishes. Schatz has won six of the last nine races.

Second place finisher Saldana started the feature in his Motter Equipment car on the pole. He led the first lap and through early restarts for cautions, held off Schatz. On lap 14, as Schatz and Saldana worked their way through lapped traffic, Schatz looked low in three and four, and got side-by-side with Saldana as the two hit the front stretch. Saldana held the position and the lead.

Schatz again challenged for the lead on lap 17 and lap 19. Finally, on lap 26, Schatz went high instead of going low and found his way around. Saldana said he was not expecting the move.

"He's a great racecar driver, and you make a mistake and he makes you pay," Saldana said. "I saw him down there in lapped traffic running on the bottom and it was getting better down there but then it started cleaning off and the top got better. It was just the wrong place at the wrong time."

Saldana said his Motter Equipment team has been struggling lately and that this second place finish gives them good momentum heading into Edmonton.

David Gravel, who drove his Roth Motorsports car to a third place finish, fell back to sixth at the start of the feature. He battled back throughout the 35 lap A main.

"The restarts definitely helped me," Gravel said. "(Daryn Pittman) got by me on the start but starting sixth on one of those double file restarts I got up to fourth and then we had another restart and I got a good run off of four on (Paul McMahan) and passed him. It's definitely great."

Gravel thanked his team and car owners Dennis and Teresa Roth.

"It's been an up and down year. We've got some wins, but to get on the podium is good. Hopefully we can continue that on for this next swing."

In the race for the championship, Schatz extended his points lead to 154 over second place Pittman. McMahan is in third, 199 points out of the lead. Saldana and Kerry Madsen have the same number of points, 8519, and wins, but Madsen has more top-five finishes, giving him the tie-breaker and the fourth position in the points.

Earlier in the night, McMahan broke the old Nodak Speedway track record held by Sammy Swindell since 2012 (13.217) with his qualifying quick time of 12.991.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Aug. 22 and 23 at the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The Outlaws then head west making stops in Washington, Oregon and California.

Daryn Pittman Wins Hard Fought 12th of the Season at River Cities

It is Pittman?s 50th Career World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Win

 

 

 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Aug. 15, 2014 - Daryn Pittman did not want to see the caution flag that flew with three laps to go in Friday night's World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event at River Cities Speedway.

For the previous 37 laps, the Owasso, Okla. native had been fending off strong challenges from Kraig Kinser and current series point leader Donny Schatz, who won the last time the Outlaws were at the track.

"I didn't really want to see the yellow," Pittman said. "I don't know what was happening behind me with three to go but I figured we were running out of laps and I just wanted to get them over with. You never want to get the field bunched back up."

As the green-white-checkered finish got underway, Pittman built an early lead as Schatz tried to make a move. Pittman led lap one as Schatz closed. With lapped traffic still several laps away, Pittman had the clean air he needed to pull ahead.

Pittman drove his Great Clips car to victory, delivering the 12th win of the season for his Kasey Kahne Racing team.

Pittman, who said he has historically struggled at River Cities, credited his crew for providing him with the equipment he needed to score the 50th win of his World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series career. Pittman is the 13th winningest driver in World of Outlaws history.

"They gave me a great racecar all night long," Pittman said. "We've probably been here four times since I've been in this car and left with our tails between our legs every time and they just never give up. The best part about this crew is that they can get mad about our finish and how we do but they just don't give up. We came back and tried something completely different."

"Thanks to (Kale Kahne), (Kolten Gouse), Michael Carber, (Ty Dent) - these guys just worked their tails off and gave me a great car and luckily we were able to hold off for 40 laps."

"This is a great win for me personally and this whole team."

Pittman, who sits second in the race for the championship, closed the gap on leader Schatz to 133 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 192 points out of the lead.

Pittman and Logan Schuchart led the field to the green flag for the 40-lap A main. Through the opening laps, Schuchart fought Pittman for the lead, as Kraig Kinser bore down on the two. Schuchart briefly took over the lead on lap six, before Pittman reclaimed it.

As three red flags and three cautions plagued the early part of the feature, Donny Schatz made up ground, advancing into the top five by lap 12. By lap 15, Schatz began working on Cody Darrah for third place. He got around shortly after.

Pittman hit lapped traffic on lap 18, giving Kinser an opportunity to get around. On lap 27, Kinser got his chance, diving low into turn three and getting a look on Pittman. Pittman however was able to close the door, leading the lap.

As Pittman, Schatz and Kinser battled for the lead, Schatz took on Kinser for second. On lap 36 Schatz got around Kinser, taking over the second position in his STP Armor All car. Then, with three to go, the caution flew.

"I needed to hit lapped traffic," Schatz said. "My racecar was really tight. I had trouble keeping it on the bottom but even more so on the top. I just couldn't seem to get rolling around here as free as I needed to be."

"When you got a group of guys like this STP team, they rally every night to give us a great racecar. We've been very consistent. I thought we had a chance at (Pittman) there until the yellow came out but clean air is everything when you race. I tried changing my line - I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. A great job by the STP guys - the best we could do was second."

When the green came back out, Kinser battled Darrah for the third position. Darrah made the pass in his Ollie's Bargain Outlet car off of turn two on the last lap, getting the podium finish.

"If it would have played out a little differently in the beginning I felt like if I would have got to second then I could have been able to race Daryn a little bit," Darrah said. "That's this racetrack. This place, one lap you feel like you're going forward and you're going to win the race and then the next lap you feel like you're going to go to the rear."

"It's so exciting to come here and race. Just the energy from all these great fans."

Earlier in the night, Joey Saldana scored his 21st quick time of the season after putting down a lap of 10.134.

Mark Dobmeier, who has one World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win this season, scored the KSE Hard Charger award of the night after starting the feature in 24th and finishing in sixth.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series concludes its Upper Midwest swing on Sunday at the Gerdau Magic City Showdown at Nodak Speedway in Minot, N.D. The Outlaws then make their final return to Canada for the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta on Aug. 22 and 23.

Donny Schatz Holds off Paul McMahan to Win 14th of the Season

Schatz extends his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman

 

 

MCCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. - Aug. 12, 2014 - Tuesday night at Junction Motor Speedway Donny Schatz proved once again why he is the man to beat in the race for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship as he notched his 14th win this season.

Schatz, who came into Junction Motor Speedway after his eighth career Knoxville Nationals win just days earlier, has scored wins in five of the last seven Outlaws events with his STP/Armor All team.

"Yeah it's been good lately, kind of like living in a dream," Schatz said after leading 20 of 30 laps in the feature. "It happens, so I'm enjoying it."

Schatz started Tuesday night's feature in fifth place, as Paul McMahan and Kraig Kinser led the field to the green flag. As Kinser fell back by lap five, Schatz had moved into the third position.

"We just kind of had to pick them off there one-by-one," Schatz said. "And the track changed a little bit and it's easy to slip the tires so that's something that these guys have always been good at - getting the car underneath me."

Schatz caught McMahan, the leader, by lap eight and began putting pressure on the driver and his CJB Motorsports car. Schatz got his opportunity the next lap as he slid McMahan through turns three and four and was able to make it stick as the drivers exited onto the frontstretch.

As the two drivers worked their way through lapped traffic during the middle part of the race, McMahan worked to close the gap between he and Schatz.

"It's your job to push it to the extremes and sometimes you have to push it to be able to get by lapped cars," Schatz said. "You can't sit back and wait, you've got to go and if there's an opportunity, you better take it. Racing with the best guys in the country, there's no question you've got to be on your game."

Farther back, Kinser was making his way back to the front, battling with and then passing Brad Sweet to get his Mesilla Valley Transportation car back into the top-three.

"I fell so many spots at the beginning," Kinser said. "I think it just caught us off guard how the bottom came in in one and two there as good as it did. I got up there and I was just bouncing around the first couple of laps, fell back a little bit and I just had to scrape to get back up there. It was tough to pass and we were still ripping around there pretty quick on the feature time. So the car started coming to me later on the runs went. By the end of it I felt pretty good but by that time the white flag was already out."

As the feature wound down, Schatz had built up a sizeable lead over McMahan. It almost slipped away though as Schatz experienced trouble in the closing laps.

"I'm not sure if I spun the tire real hard trying to get around someone or what but it was almost like I couldn't hit the bottom in three and four anymore - it could have been a byproduct of maybe we just wore it out," Schatz said. "It happens. We're racing on dirt and I could get around the bottom so good and all it takes is spinning the tires wildly one time. You can have that happen. The car still felt great. I just could have moved my line a little bit - I didn't. Good thing we seen the white flag and checkered."

In the race for the championship Schatz extended his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 140 points. Schatz won the KSE Hard Charger Award tonight after he advanced four positions before winning the feature.

McMahan said he was disappointed to not get the win, but commended his team for giving him a good car and Schatz for the stiff competition.

"Donny's just unbelievable right now," McMahan said. "As soon as August rolls around that guy just picks up his game 200 times better than what he was. We had a good racecar. You know he was just better than we were. (Crew chief Barry Jackson) gives me a great racecar, I just don't think I could have done anymore tonight."

Consistency has been McMahan's greatest strength this season, where, in addition to four wins, he has 55 top-ten finishes - tied for the most on the season. McMahan sits third in the race for the championship, 183 points out of the lead.

"We're fast - we're always fast," McMahan said. "We've got a shot of winning every night. Right now we've just got to figure out how to be as good as that 15 car right now. We're close but we're just a little off right now."

Kinser said the struggles his team faced early on, set them back as they ran out of time to chase down McMahan and Schatz.

"By that time Donny was already gone and I could still see Paul," Kinser said. "It was what it is. We kind of got a slow start and we got rolling around here and I was hitting marks. At the end of the day we ended up third with two great teams and two great drivers in front of us."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action Friday, Aug. 15 at Grand Forks, N.D.'s River Cities Speedway. The Outlaws conclude their Upper Midwest swing on Aug. 17 at the Gerdau Magic City Showdown at Nodak Speedway in Minot, N.D.

At A Glance: Who Can Chase Down Donny Schatz in the Race for the Championship?

Daryn Pittman is second, 118 points back, while Paul McMahan is third, 174 points out of lead

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 11, 2014 - With the Knoxville Nationals in the books, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads back into the Upper Midwest for a three race swing that will take them to Junction Motor Speedway in Nebraska, and River Cities Speedway and Nodak Speedway in North Dakota.

Now that the first two-thirds of the season is complete and the 'Month of Money' has concluded, the focus turns to the race for the championship, where five-time Outlaws champion Donny Schatz has a 118 point lead over second place Daryn Pittman, the series' reigning champion. In third, Paul McMahan, who has four wins this season and has been a consistent presence in the top-ten during 2014, is 174 points away from Schatz and the lead.

If history is any indication, Schatz, a North Dakota native, comes into this three race swing with the advantage. He has wins at all three tracks, including a win at River Cities earlier this season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next makes its way to Edmonton, Alberta for the Outlaws final visit to Canada this season. Castrol Raceway hosts two nights of racing as the Outlaws battle for the Oil City Cup.

Donny Schatz Wins His Eighth Knoxville Nationals Title

Schatz again holds off Brian Brown to score victory during sprint car racing�s richest week

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 9, 2014 - After rain delays, qualifiers, many days of work and months of preparation, Saturday's FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores came down to just a few laps with two familiar competitors fighting a pitched battle.

And when the checkered flag flew, for the third time in three years, two-time Knoxville Raceway track champion Brian Brown found himself second to five-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz.

With ten to go, Brown, who was running second in his FVP/Casey's General Stores car after starting fourth in the feature, closed the gap on Schatz, who had led most of the A main.

"I just didn't know how I was going to beat him," Brown said. "I pulled my wing back a little bit - I kind of laid left on my left rear. I got myself a little more plugged in there. It was like we just took back off.

"I don't know if the bottom slowed down or if I got better but we were able to catch (Schatz) there with (7 to go). I knew myself I probably should be going that quick to pass him because I knew if I showed him he was going to get his elbows up. I felt like if I were to get caught up on the cushion I wasn't going to get the opportunity so I had to go. I got by him - went to the bottom, protected the bottom…"

The crowd at Knoxville erupted for Brown as he crossed the start-finish line to lead a lap.

Schatz said he was surprised how well Brown was able to get around on the top of one and two.

"I tried early when we got to lapped traffic and I couldn't make it work," Schatz said. "That's the way it works - it's all about making the right decisions."

The next lap, Schatz looked inside and was able to clear Brown to retake the lead. Brown battled with Schatz during the remaining laps and despite at least one promising look for the lead, he was never able to get back around.

With his victory, Schatz scored his eighth Knoxville Nationals win in nine years. Just as impressive, the Fargo, N.D. native has finished first or second in 12 of his last 14 Knoxville Nationals outings.

"It's unbelievable - it feels so unreal, like it's not happening," Schatz said. "I haven't gotten a chance to get with the (STP) team and celebrate, but I definitely want to enjoy this. We raced good and hard with Brian. I had an awesome car all week long. Not very often that you get a car that good but these guys have worked awful hard to get us in this position and they put it on my shoulders when we went."

The win, which included a $150,000 payday for Schatz and his STP/Armor All team, was all the sweeter for the driver who is celebrating a birthday on Sunday.

Brown said at the end of the day, Schatz had the better car when it counted. He said he had mixed emotions about his second place finish but that he was ready to come back to Knoxville to take on the track once again.

"I think the big thing is I just want to congratulate Donny Schatz - eight out of nine and being able to do such a feat like that is pretty special. We're watching history. Somebody's going to beat him sooner or later and I hope it's me."

Third place finisher Kerry Madsen said that he was hoping he could make up ground on Brown and Schatz with his American Racing Custom Wheels car as the two battled for the lead. Ultimately though he said he just wasn't quite good enough.

Madsen, who led the Knoxville points coming into Friday's qualifier, said he is thrilled with his run, even if he did not win and with the performance of his team right now.

"It's mind boggling," Madsen said. "The last two months have just been - you couldn't dream about it.

"I'm actually double edged because I'm slightly disappointed not to win - we weren't quick enough to win but on the other hand I'm so proud for our organization our team, our sponsors, our owners that we got a podium in the Knoxville Nationals. It's been just fantastic. I'm so excited because with our crew chief Tyler Swank, we've only been together eight months…. But the future is bright."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action Tuesday, Aug. 12 as the Outlaws begin a three race stretch through the Upper Midwest, beginning with Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Neb. After that, the Outlaws continue on to River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. on Aug. 15 followed by Nodak Speedway in Minot, N.D. on Aug. 17.

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz won his eighth Knoxville Nationals in five seasons… Donny Schatz has finished first or second in 12 of his last 14 Knoxville Nationals outings… Brooke Tatnell won the B main, Dale Blaney won the C main, Brad Loyet won the D main and Jimmy Light won the E main… This is the third year in a row Donny Schatz has finished first to Brian Brown's second at the Knoxville Nationals.

Shane Stewart Makes Last Lap Pass to Win Knoxville Nationals Qualifier

Stewart ties Madsen for second in points; Schatz takes the lead and the pole in Saturday�s A main

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 8, 2014 - One lap is all Shane Stewart led at Friday night's qualifying feature for the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores, but it was the one that mattered.

Stewart, who has one World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win on the season at Eldora Speedway in May, started the feature Friday night in sixth and after working his way through the field, passed Kraig Kinser on the final lap for the win.

"I was able to keep up with (Kraig) doing (running on the bottom in) one and two and it just worked out for me," Stewart said. "My car was good. The time trials are stressful and of course making it through the heat races is stressful. I feel like if you could do both of those, the A main is crucial, but it's not as crucial. I was going to be happy with running second and it just played out well for me."

"Anytime you can turn right off them scales, there's no better feeling. Just really, really happy for my guys; really happy for Kick-It and GoPro and Justin and Kyle."

Starting from the front row tomorrow, Stewart said tonight's win was great momentum for his team and that he feels like they will be in a position to win the Knoxville Nationals on Saturday night.

"I honestly feel like if I can put myself in a position to win it - I really feel like we have a good shot. I know 50 laps is a long race. We're with a great group of cars this year. All those guys are going to be really hard to beat. I feel like if all our stars are in line, I feel like I can finish tomorrow on top of the podium."

Kinser and Mark Dobmeier led the field to the green flag with Kinser leading the first lap. Though Kinser maintained the lead, the two battled through much of the feature. Farther back, Stewart, who started in sixth, was working his way through the field.

By the first caution on lap two, Stewart had moved to fourth and was able to pass David Gravel on the restart to take over the third position. Stewart set his sights on Dobmeier in second and by lap 13 was fighting for the position. Eight laps later, Stewart took over the second spot after a side-by-side battle with Dobmeier.

One final caution flew with three to go giving Stewart the opportunity he needed. Kinser held the lead for the first lap as Stewart looked for a way around. As Kinser took the white flag, he went high as Stewart looked low. Stewart was able to make it stick and complete the pass on the bottom.

"I heard him on that restart," said Kinser, who finished second in his Mesilla Valley Transportation car. "I wasn't getting the best restarts. I just couldn't get it taken off. I thought he was on the outside of me. I just came up trying to block the line. I felt good at the top when I was in traffic. I thought I would run around the top and opened the door for him and he was right there."

Kinser said his performance Friday night gave him confidence going into Saturday.

"We've got a situation where we don't know what we have going into Knoxville or we're not where we'd like to be," Kinser said. "I've gotten away with some good finishes so hopefully we continue it. We've got a decent starting spot for the A main and we'll go from there and see how we do tomorrow."

Dobmeier, who battled with Donny Schatz throughout much of the feature, said he figured out too late that he could make his Senske & Son Transfer car work on the bottom.

"Right before that (final) caution, (Schatz) showed me he was a little bit better there on the bottom he got by me but luckily the yellow came out so I was able to get my spot back," Dobmeier said. "Off the restart I didn't know if these two were going to go to the bottom or what but I had a good car up top. So they both went to the bottom and I had to take a runner on top. After that I got down on the bottom and found I was pretty good down there. I was actually kicking myself I wasn't down on the bottom more in that race. My crew, everybody gave me a good car."

Donny Schatz leads the Knoxville Nationals points heading into Saturday with Shane Stewart in second, Kerry Madsen in third, Brian Brown in fourth and Paul McMahan in fifth. The top-20 starting positions in Saturday's A main are now set.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action Saturday morning at Knoxville Raceway. All of Friday's events, including the SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge will be run prior to Saturday's regularly scheduled show.

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz took over the Knoxville Nationals points lead with Shane Stewart and Kerry Madsen in second and third… Craig Dollansky scored the quick time Friday night… Tim Kaeding, Daryn Pittman, Sammy Swindell and Brad Sweet were the four cars that transferred to the A main from the Last Chance Showdown.

Brian Brown Takes Night One at the FVP Knoxville Nationals

Brown is now second in the point standings for the Knoxville Nationals title

 

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 7, 2014 - Brian Brown fired the opening shot in the battle for the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores, surging past Sam Hafertepe Jr. to win Thursday night's qualifying feature.

Brown, who has found himself in recent years fighting Donny Schatz for the Knoxville Nationals title, said he is keeping Schatz in his sights but is also thinking about tonight's third place finisher, Kerry Madsen.

"When your car is working that good and your motor is working that good the driver doesn't have to do anything that's too crazy - just don't put yourself out of position," said Brown, driver of the FVP, Casey's General Stores car. "We didn't do it tonight. We weren't too crazy fast in qualifying, we weren't that great in the heat and in the feature, to me, we were just kind of mediocre and we found a way to squeak one out - we've got to work on our car a little bit more if we want to beat Madsen and Schatz."

The rain that postponed Wednesday's first night of qualifying did not return Thursday, however a light mist fell on the track for much of the late afternoon. Brown said the weather conditions lowered his expectations for the night.

"We went out to hot lap and it's misting rain and every half a lap your shield fogs up where you can't even see," Brown said. "So I was thinking, I waited 360 days for this Knoxville Nationals and this is what I'm going to get?... I was thinking one lane, no passing. I'm going to get third to fourth quick time; I'm going run eighth in the heat, I'm going start fourth in the B and transfer. I'm going go from 22nd to 10th and be 14th in points is what I was thinking. Obviously it changed quite a bit."

Brown complimented Knoxville officials for the work they did to get the track back in racing condition after a day of rain. He also thanked the fans for sticking it out through less than ideal weather.

After qualifying fourth and finishing fourth in his heat, Brown finds himself second in the Knoxville points standings. He is six points out of the lead.

Bryan Clauson and Jeff Swindell led the field to the green flag - second place finishing Sam Hafertepe Jr. started in third, Brown started in fifth and Madsen started in seventh.

Jeff Swindell jumped out to an early lead, taking lap one of the feature. It was a position he held through much of the first half of the feature, as Clauson tried to hold off his competition. By lap five, Hafertepe moved into the second spot, setting his sights on Swindell, as Brown pushed into the top-five.

On lap 12, Hafertepe had reeled in Swindell and was battling with him for the lead. Hafertepe took over the lead a lap later as Brown pressed Clauson for third. Brown took over the spot on lap 15. After a short battle, Madsen also got around Clauson, taking over the fourth spot.

Shortly after Brown passed Swindell for second, a red flag flew. It was the break Brown needed.

"Sam (Hafertepe) did a good job and brought me around pretty slow (on the restart)," Brown said. "My motor didn't take off quite as well as I would like and he got going a little bit better. I was going to throw a Hail Mary there and try to slide him and I went across there and it stuck pretty well. And then I stuck the bottom off of two and went down the back straightaway and he chopped me pretty good. I thought I really want to win this but I really want to finish so I let him go and then got back going again and got another good run and stuck it."

Hafertepe said he came into Knoxville with a lot of confidence after good runs at the 360 Nationals and a weekly show at the track. That confidence Hafertepe had faded though as he struggled through qualifying.

"We thought we'd qualify top-10 and we qualified 20th," Hafertepe said. "I was pretty upset after qualifying because I knew we had a better car than that. The way the track was, it just caught us off guard. We were kind of geared up to be a little bit slicker. I just told myself, hey, we've got to deal with what we have and we did. We made our car better and better and we ran second in the heat from fifth. In the feature, if the only guy that beats you is Brown, you're doing alright around here."

With a fifth place position in the Knoxville Nationals' points, Hafertepe said he hopes it will be enough to lock him into the show on Saturday night.

Madsen, who is now leading the Knoxville Nationals' point standings and is carrying momentum from wins at Eldora Speedway's Kings Royal and The Ironman 55, credited his American Racing Custom Wheels team and more specifically his crew chief Tyler Swank for the his success this season.

"You know, I'm more excited that we had a good night and we're solidly in the show rather than being the point leader," Madsen said. "We had a solid car all night - qualifying, heat race and the A main. I just drove really conservatively in the A main - I just wanted to get a finish. The car was great and it's going to be a good relief tonight. A good night's sleep and I'll go watch the races tomorrow and Saturday is probably going to be pretty intense."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night at Knoxville Raceway as Wednesday's qualifying group makes up its rain postponed show. All of Friday's events have been moved to Saturday afternoon, prior to the regularly scheduled Saturday show.

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY NOTES: Kerry Madsen leaves night one leading the Knoxville Nationals points… This is Brian Brown's second straight qualifying night feature win at the Knoxville Nationals… Paul McMahan scored the quick time tonight… Ian Madsen set the 10 lap track record at Knoxville on Thursday night, finishing his heat in 2:31.779.

FORMAT

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY

Wednesday - RacingJunk.com Qualifying Night
Thursday - Lucas Oil Qualifying Night

Order of Events: Hot laps, Qualifications, Last Chance Heats, 5 Heats, C feature, B feature, A feature.

Qualifications - 200 points are awarded for quick timer, 198 for second quick, 196 for third, etc.

Only the top 50 qualifiers make the heats, the rest are put in the last chance heats in which the first eight finishers will fill the back of that night's C feature (starting in the sixth row).

Last Chance Heats (for drivers out of the top 50 in Qual.) - 50 points awarded to the winner, 47 for 2nd, etc.

Heats - 100 points are awarded for the heat winner, points go down by three: 97, 94, 91, 88, etc.

Heats are inverted (8-10). This sets up the best racing of the

week. Top four finishers go to A, next four to B, last two to C.

C feature
Top four finishers go to back of the B. Fifth place is worth 92 pts., 6th is 90, etc.

B feature
The top four finishers transfer to the tail of the A. The B awards 142 points for fifth, 140 for sixth and so on by twos.

A feature
The A feature points are the same as time trials: 200, 198, 196 etc. This explains how a driver cannot make the A, but if he timed well may have more points than someone who did make the A.

First tie breaker is finish position in respective main event. Next tie breaker is rank in time trial. The third tie breaker is pill draw. Other tie breaking criteria may be implemented if needed.

A perfect score (quick time, heat win, feature win) is 500.

The top 16 in points from Wed. and Thurs. are locked in to Saturday's program.

FRIDAY

The top 4 finishers from the A-Main move into spots 17-20 in Saturday's A-Main. Friday's event will consist of qualifying, heats, C if needed, two B-Mains and A-Main as well as the Speed Sport Knoxville World Challenge.

SPEED SPORT Knoxville World Challenge
This is an international invitational event. The lineup is inverted according to points accrued on Wednesday and Thursday. The top finishing driver among the top three in the World Challenge is eligible for a position in Saturday night's main event.

SATURDAY

54th FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store Finals

Events: E feature, D feature, C feature, B feature, FVP Knoxville Nationals Championship feature.

Kerry Madsen Holds off Donny Schatz to Win the Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 presented by Walker

Madsen scored his fifth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season

 

 

PEVELY, Mo. - Aug. 2, 2014 - Kerry Madsen proved to be the strongest man Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, leading 35 laps and holding back his fiercest competition to win the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series' Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 presented by Walker.

Madsen, who started the main event in sixth, worked his way forward, eventually getting around Paul McMahan, who led one lap early, and then leader Donny Schatz on a restart on lap 20. This was Madsen's fifth win of the season.

"It feels bloody awesome! I can't believe it! This is one of the races you want to win," Madsen said. "Man, that track, I just hammered down man. That was a lot of fun."

Madsen, who earlier in the night scored his fifth quick time of the season, said as the 55-lap A main wound down he began waiting for a challenge from second place Schatz, who he knew was coming for him.

"It's bloody Donny Schatz behind you - you can't make a mistake," Madsen said. "I was very comfortable until I started slowing down in lapped traffic. And actually, believe it or not, when Jason Sides caught me back I thought it was Donny and I was just trying as hard as I could… I saw it was Jason and I was like, oh that's alright, he's just blocking the hole for me."

"I've got to admit the fun was starting to get over when I was going, come on checkered, this has got to be coming. I just kept plowing away. Man that checkered flag didn't fall early enough for me that's for sure."

Madsen thanked his sponsor American Racing Custom Wheels, owners Peter and Bob Gavranich, his crew chief Tyler Swank and crew members Brandon Ikenberry and Chris Bowe.

"What a race! I can't believe we won that. That's a lot of fun."

In addition to bragging rights, McMahan won $20,000. This is his fifth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season - earlier in the year, he claimed the coveted Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. Madsen is fourth in the race for the championship, 313 points out of the lead.

Brad Sweet and Paul McMahan led the field to the green flag, but it was fourth place starting Schatz who quickly jumped forward. After leading the first lap, McMahan ceded the position to Schatz. Through two early cautions, Schatz hung on as Madsen began to make his move forward. When the caution fell again on lap 20, Madsen got the opportunity he needed. On the restart he found his way around Schatz and took over the lead on lap 21.

James McFadden, like Madsen, an Australia native, started back in 11th in his All Star Performance car. As the feature wore on, he worked his way through the field. By lap 20 he had moved into sixth. As Madsen built a large lead at the front, McFadden found his way past Kraig Kinser for fourth and Paul McMahan for third.

As the cars worked their way through lapped traffic in the closing 10 laps, McFadden closed the gap, challenging Schatz on the bottom for second. The battle continued for several laps, before Schatz could again pull away. On the final lap, Schatz gave it one last try to get around Madsen for the lead, diving to the bottom in turns three and four, but it was not enough.

Schatz, a five-time Outlaws champion and current points leader, finished the night in second, his eighth podium finish in a row.

"I knew we were going to need traffic," Schatz said. "Kerry runs the racetrack really well when you get up there and go. Just couldn't find another line to gain any time without having traffic there at the end - that helped us a little bit… He was a little bit better there towards the middle of the race and maybe even at the end. We just got to him. They just got the job done quicker than we did."

Schatz said he tried different lines throughout the feature but just could not get his car into a line to close the gap on Madsen.

"Some days are like that, some days aren't," Schatz said. "The STP guys still did a great job. They've been awful consistent lately. We were in contention for it. I guess it came down to that last restart there. He got a really good start and we didn't. So that's the way it goes - you win some, you lose some."

McFadden, who picked up his second podium finish in three races with the Outlaws and his second KSE Hard Charger Award in as many nights, said the track, one of his favorites, was challenging, but that he stumbled into a good line.

"It was tough, you just kind of had to give yourself clean air and that was kind of the key I guess," McFadden said. "As soon as you got behind a car it kind of screwed around with the front of your car. We just accidentally went to the middle and found a good spot and passed cars there. Just hats off to the 3g guys. They gave me an awesome car and to give them a good result is awesome."

Schatz extended his lead in the race for the championship over second place Daryn Pittman to 118 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 174 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Wednesday, Aug. 6 at Knoxville Speedway in Knoxville, Iowa as the Outlaws take on the Knoxville Nationals.

Paul McMahan Holds off Kerry Madsen to Win Red Flag Delayed Prelude to the Ironman

McMahan picked up his fourth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season in a race delayed by rain and extensive repairs to the catch fence

 

 

 

PEVELY, Mo. - Aug. 1, 2014 - The Monroe Shocks & Struts Prelude to the Ironman at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 proved to be a long event that saw rain delays and a two hour red flag to repair damage to a catch fence - but none of that slowed Paul McMahan as he held off Kerry Madsen and drove to his fourth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season Friday night.

Rain fell early on in the day at I-55, but it was a bizarre wreck in the night's second heat that delayed the feature into the early morning hours of Saturday. With two to go, a wreck involving then second-place running Cale Thomas, sent the young driver into the catch fence in the middle of turns one and two. A large portion of the fence was ripped out and racing action stopped as maintenance crews worked to repair the gap.

Two hours and a rain shower later, racing returned to the track and Kerry Madsen won the heat.

Thomas was OK. He went on to win the Last Chance Showdown and compete in the A main before being knocked out in another wreck early on.

The night though belonged to McMahan, who dominated the feature and held off Daryn Pittman and Madsen to win.

"First, I've got to thank all these fans for sticking around here because I know how late it is and I tell you what, I was one of the guys hoping they would cancel it - but thank God they didn't tonight," said McMahan, driver of the CJB Motorsports car. "Hats off to all the track maintenance guys that busted their butts and got that fence back together because when it first went down, I didn't think we had a chance of racing tonight."

As the green flag fell on the feature, Pittman took a quick lead as a caution flew before one lap could be completed. When the race returned to green, McMahan took over the lead position through the first few laps.

"Daryn actually got a better run off the bottom," McMahan said. "I think he was just committed to running the bottom there on the first lap and I was able to power around the outside to get by."

"When you're out front early in the race you really don't know where you want to be. I just saw what he did there on the first two starts, what he did to me in the dash and was able to get the jump. I get to control the restart being the leader there so I took off a little early and got a good run up off the corner and was able to get to the top."

McMahan said lapped traffic around the track presented him with trouble during the feature.

"It's so fast around the top and you really got to slow down to hit the bottom and I really didn't want to slow down that much," McMahan said. "I got in there behind Cody [Darrah] and I tried to slide him one time and I couldn't get by. He was fast enough to stay up front so I just figured I would follow him around and hopefully no one would get by me."

McMahan scored his fourth win of the season. He is currently third in the championship points standings, 167 points out of the lead.

Kerry Madsen, who started the feature in the sixth position and battled his way through the field, nearly had his night ended on lap eight as got too far into the cushion and slowed dramatically.

"I was just kind of tight and got too aggressive and nearly threw it all away," said Madsen, who ended up not losing any positions with the incident. "The guys gave me a great racecar, absolutely. It was a fun track."

In the final laps, Madsen worked his way through lapped traffic in his American Racing Custom Wheels car and closed the gap on McMahan. In the final lap, in the final turn, Madsen tried sliding McMahan but was not able to clear the pass.

"Actually, I'll be honest, I thought I was going to get Paul," Madsen said. "I thought, let's be patient, wait until we get the right move and I could make that move in three and four. I wish I would have tried a little harder earlier. He drove a great race, congratulations to the CJB team and great result for us - second. We're definitely proud with that."

Points leader Donny Schatz brought his STP/Armor All car home to a third-place finish - his seventh podium finish in a row. Schatz said he and his team were hoping to have a car that would allow them to get up and challenge for the lead.

"Got a little past our bedtime, so we kind of fell off a little bit," Schatz said.

"The bottom was pretty good the first part there. Every lap it just kind of went away awful quick. And you had to be up on the top making speed. Once you got up there it was pretty hard to pass unless you had traffic. We were going around some cars so fast there really wasn't an opportunity to get one that was racing with someone.

"We had a decent car. I guess we got a top-three. That's better than the alternative… but we want to win. Tomorrow night is 55 laps and we'll be a little better."

Schatz maintains his 106 point lead over Pittman in the race for the championship.

David Gravel took home his seventh quick time of the season. Only McMahan and Joey Saldana have more quick times so far in 2014.

Donny Schatz Battles Shane Stewart to Win Third in a Row at Ohsweken Speedway�s Six Nations Showdown

Schatz�s 12th win of the season gives him the most wins of any driver so far this season

 

 

OHSWEKEN, Ont. - July 29, 2014 - Neither cautions nor a fierce battle with Shane Stewart could stop Donny Schatz on his way to a sweep of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series' three-race Canada swing and 12th win of the season at Ohsweken Speedway Tuesday night.

Schatz won the Six Nations Showdown after winning the two previous events at Cornwall Motor Speedway and Autodrome Drummond.

"I just did everything I could," Schatz said. "A lot of it comes down to [crew members] Rick Warner, [Steve 'Scuba' Swanson], Eric [Prutzman], Bill Klingbeil - these guys do a phenomenal job working on this racecar and making STP look good."

In addition to winning the feature at Ohsweken, Schatz was third quickest in hot laps, took home the quick time - his sixth of the season - won his heat race and finished second in the dash.

"The [STP/Armor All] car was fun to drive all night long, right from the word go," Schatz said. "Hot laps, qualifying, heat race. Shane got out front there pretty early. I expected the track to slow down and slick off there a little bit more than it did but it was fast. It was an awful fast race. Hats off to the whole STP team, they did a great job getting me what I needed."

"I enjoyed being in Canada. It's been great to me. O Canada!"

Cautions plagued the early part of the race. Just after the drop of the green flag, an incident left Paul McMahan on his roof in the middle of turns one and two and Jason Sides and Kraig Kinser with damaged racecars. Sides and McMahan were able to return to the track while Kinser had his night ended.

Two more cautions followed in quick succession for Sides and Logan Schuchart. With Stewart leading, James McFadden in second and Schatz in third another caution came out with eight complete after a mechanical issue led to a fire on the No. 52 of Jesse Costa. Costa was OK.

On the restart, Schatz fought his way around McFadden for second. What commenced was a ten lap battle for the lead between Schatz and Stewart. On laps 10, 11 and 12 Schatz looked low and in the middle to get around Stewart but couldn't make it work. With a decent lead built up, Stewart hit lapped traffic on lap 15. As he worked his way through it, Schatz began reeling him back in.

By lap 18, Schatz was again on Stewart's rear bumper bar, challenging him for the lead. After a hiccup for Stewart, Schatz got around and led lap 19. Stewart however was able to use lapped traffic as a pick, sliding Schatz through turns one and two. He led lap 20.

Schatz was not done though, on the next lap he too was able to use lapped traffic as a pick, getting back around Stewart to lead lap 21. Though Stewart tried to reel Schatz back in, Schatz took the checkered flag for his third win in a row. His current streak is the second longest of the season.

Schatz extended his points lead over Daryn Pittman to 106. After a difficult night that saw him finish in 18th, third place Paul McMahan fell to 178 points back.

Stewart, who has one World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win this season, complimented his Townline Variety team, a temporary home for the driver who normally competes with Larson Marks Racing.

"All these guys behind me, they worked really hard for me all week," Stewart said. "They're all part-timers. They don't get paid to work on this car and they all do it because they love it. It was a joy working with them… We had a really solid week. I think if a couple of things had played out a little differently I think we maybe could have gotten a win here or there. It was a good week for us."

McFadden said he was disappointed his All-Star Performance/Gaerte Engines/XYZ Machining team was so close to the front, but unable to compete with Stewart and Schatz for the lead.

"It's good for our confidence leading into these next few races," McFadden said. "It just sucks we couldn't race with them there. I could see them - I just couldn't get close enough. Hats off to the boys with this 3G team - we've had a pretty solid summer since I've been here, so it's been great."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action at the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 on August 1 and 2. After that, the Outlaws head to Knoxville, Iowa to compete for one of the most coveted prizes in all of motorsports - the Knoxville Nationals.

OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz's 12th win gave him the most wins of any driver so far this season… Jessica Zemken, Paul McMahan, Cody Darrah and Donny Schatz all won their heat races tonight… Donny Schatz's three race win streak is the second longest this season… Logan Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season… David Gravel received the KSE Hard Charger Award at Ohsweken after advancing nine positions to finish in fifth… Donny Schatz picked up his sixth quick time of the season.

Donny Schatz Scores 11th Win of the Season at Cornwall Motor Speedway

Schatz gets his second win in as many nights and remains undefeated with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series at Cornwall

 

 

 

CORNWALL, Ont. - July 27, 2014 - Donny Schatz scored his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win in as many nights Sunday after battling David Gravel and Kerry Madsen at Cornwall Motor Speedway. It was Schatz's 11th win of 2014, tying him with Daryn Pittman for the most on the season.

Schatz, who won the Outlaws' first and most recent appearance at the track in 2012, said Canada has been very good to him.

"[I] always look forward to coming," Schatz said. "When we saw those rain clouds earlier in the day we were trying to get them to go away and obviously it worked. Can't control Mother Nature, but she was obviously a race fan tonight. I hope you guys enjoyed it - it was great to be here tonight. The track was fun for me."

The driver of the No. 15 STP/Armor All car complimented his team for the work they have been doing to get him to 11 wins.

"This team is really operating right now," Schatz said. "They're doing a phenomenal job. Everything they keep doing to these racecars is making big changes. Makes for a happy driver."

Schatz extended his championship points lead again Sunday night. He now has an 83 point lead over Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is 135 points out of the lead.

Kerry Madsen and David Gravel led the field to the green flag as Madsen jumped out to an early lead. Gravel got off track in the opening laps and slipped back to the fifth position. The first caution of the night flew on lap six.

As the green flag again flew, Schatz made his move, reeling in Madsen, as the Australia-native approached lapped traffic. After completing lap 10, Schatz slid Madsen and made it stick, taking over the lead on lap 11.

Shortly after, three cautions fell in quick succession. When the green flag again came out on lap 20, Schatz led Madsen, Paul McMahan, Kraig Kinser and David Gravel. In sixth, Logan Schuchart had advanced two positions from his eighth place starting position. By lap 30 Gravel was making a charge back after his earlier problem, moving into the third position, while Schuchart continued his advance forward to fourth.

The final caution of the night came out on lap 38 and set up a green, white, checkered finish. When the green flag dropped Schatz quickly built on his lead, with Madsen in second, and Gravel and Schuchart battling for third. Schuchart quickly slid Gravel and took over third.

Schatz took the checkered flag in first with Madsen second and Schuchart third.

Madsen's second place finish was his second in as many nights in his American Racing Custom Wheels car. He led the first ten laps of Sunday's feature.

"We'll take second all night long," Madsen said. "We want to win them but we got beat by a better car tonight. Anytime we can finish on the podium it's a great result… It's extremely tough competition so we're definitely not disappointed. This is a great momentum builder for us and gives us a lot of confidence in the team for the rest of the year and the big races coming up."

Madsen thanked his crew members and team owners Bob and Peter Gavranich.

Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season at Cornwall in his Your Auto Source car - the first came at Thunderbowl Raceway, where he finished second, and the second came at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, where he finished third.

Schuchart, who took the KSE Hard Charger Award of the night after advancing five positions, said the caution flags late in the race helped him make up ground and make the passes he needed to score a podium finish.

"We got racing pretty good but everyone is pretty equal so it makes it kind of hard. It was a slick track - it made it racy, it made it fun to drive on," Schuchart said. "I think the last couple yellows helped us to get a couple more cars."

"Anytime you run good, you like it. All these tracks are new tracks to us, especially up here in Canada. But we're having fun, we like it and we're happy to be here."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada at Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown. The Outlaws then travel to Pevely, Mo. for the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on August 1 and 2.

Patience Pays Off for Donny Schatz as He Wins at Autodrome Drummond

This was Schatz?s 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season and his first at the track

 

 

 

DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - July 26, 2014 - Donny Schatz charged past lapped cars and his competition Saturday night at Autodrome Drummond on the way to his 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

Schatz, who spent much of the race in his fifth place starting position, had his patience pay off as his STP/Armor All car and the track came around.

"You need traffic, you need your racecar to change," Schatz said. "You put 30 gallons of fuel in these things, they're not as fun to drive as they are at the end. We had to wait for the racecar to change a little bit - the track was going to change a little bit. This STP team did a phenomenal job making the right changes for the feature."

As Schatz got around Cody Darrah and then Kerry Madsen he said he didn't focus on what was behind him.

"If I do my job right and get [my] car stuck, you don't have to worry about what's going on behind you," Schatz said. "And my car was very good, very stuck - I could go around the racetrack. I just had to pick the right line to get through those guys and I did… like I said, it was a fun race."

In addition to picking up his 10th win of the season, Schatz improved his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 63. Third place Paul McMahan is 121 points out of the lead.

In front of a full house at Autodrome Drummond, Cody Darrah led the field to the green flag in his Ollie's Bargain Outlet car with Paul McMahan on the outside front row. Darrah led the first lap as McMahan worked to hold back Daryn Pittman.

Kraig Kinser brought out the only caution of the race on lap three after coming to a stop in the back shoot. After a brief stop in the work area, Kinser returned to the track. Darrah maintained his lead on the restart as McMahan and Madsen advanced their positions, getting around Pittman, who had a bad restart.

As Darrah hit lapped traffic on lap eight, Madsen, who had moved into the second position, looked for a way around. It took Madsen nine more laps. As the two drivers crossed the start/finish line, Madsen dove his American Racing Custom Wheels car low into turn one and slid Darrah through the corner. When the two hit backstretch, Madsen was in the lead.

Schatz, who maintained his fifth place starting position through the early portion of the race, began to make his move on lap 14. He got around Pittman near the halfway point of the feature and then set his sights on Paul McMahan, who he got around just a few laps later.

On lap 22, Madsen came off of turn two and got off track down the back stretch. His slowed momentum allowed Darrah to close the gap. As Darrah dove low into turn three he and Madsen touched tires. Madsen maintained position as Schatz, in third place, closed the gap on the two drivers. Schatz took over the second place position from Darrah on lap 24. Then, after reeling in Madsen, Schatz passed him on the backstretch going into turn three. Schatz led lap 27 and was never seriously challenged again.

Madsen, who scored the quick time during qualifying earlier in the night and started the feature in fourth, led nine laps through the mid-point of the race.

"Yeah I was trying to push and you want to build up a lead," Madsen said. "I had pretty nice, comfortable groove on the top but I just didn't do a good enough job in traffic and made a mistake and let Donny drive right by. Congrats to Donny, congrats to Cody running third. It's still a great result for our team."

Darrah, who won last year's feature at Autodrome Drummond, led the first 17 laps of Saturday night's A main. He said he moved around throughout the night looking for the right line.

"I was just kind of moving around," Darrah said. "From the start I felt pretty free and I was a little worried. As I brought my wing back to get my right rear on the track, when I had to slow down to move to the bottom I'd get myself tight... Back when I got to third Kerry made some mistakes and got off track and I was never able to capitalize but I love Drummondville. It's an awesome place to come to."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada Sunday night at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont. The Outlaws then head Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown.

AUTODROME DRUMMOND NOTES: Donny Schatz scored his 10th win of the season… Kerry Madsen picked up the quick time at Autodrome Drummond, his fourth of the year… Donny Schatz won the KSE Hard Charger Award after advancing four positions to win the feature… 2013 winner Cody Darrah won the dash and started on the pole for tonight's A main.

The Championship Battle Tightens as The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Heads North of the Border

The Outlaws roll into Autodrome Drummond, Cornwall Motor Speedway and Ohsweken Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - July 25, 2014 - With the 'Month of Money' in full swing and a tightening championship points battle, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads to Canada for a three race swing that will bring the series into Quebec and Ontario.

Daryn Pittman scored his 11th win of the season at Fulton Speedway on July 23 and brought Donny Schatz's points lead down to just 55 points. Pittman, the reigning Outlaws champion, has two more wins on the season than three-time champion Schatz, but Schatz has more top-fives, top-tens and quick times.

Schatz has history on his side going into Canada with wins at both Cornwall Motor Speedway and Ohsweken Speedway. Last year, Schatz finished second at Autodrome Drummond.

Autodrome Drummond hosts the Outlaws on Saturday, July 26. The Outlaws then swing into Cornwall Motor Speedway on Sunday, July 27 before heading to Ohsweken Speedway for the Six Nations Showdown on Tuesday, July 29.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next takes on the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on Aug. 1 and 2 before heading to Knoxville, Iowa for the biggest prize in sprint car racing - Knoxville Nationals.

Daryn Pittman Charges to 11th Win of the Season at Fulton Speedway

Jessica Zemken scores best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish

 

 

 

FULTON, N.Y. - July 23, 2014 - Daryn Pittman charged to his 11th win of the season Wednesday night at Fulton Speedway, as Sprakers, N.Y.-native Jessica Zemken scored her best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish.

Pittman, who sits just 55 points out of the championship lead, said the win was the most uncomfortable he has had this season.

"I just knew we were going to get smoked," Pittman said in victory lane. "I honestly thought we were going to go from the lead to fourth or fifth in a lap. I just didn't know what to do. I was lost as a driver. The pace of the race just changed dramatically there."

"I was good on top in one and two and when I could run the top in one and two that really helped me hit the top in three and four."

Pittman said as he approached lapped traffic in his Great Clips #9, he noticed the cars were getting away from him.

"When I started running the bottom all the way around, I started making really bad laps in three and four on the bottom," he said. "I just kept waiting for somebody to show me their nose… It's an uncomfortable feeling as a driver when you're doing the wrong thing on the racetrack and you just don't know what to do. I was looking for the checkered about five laps before that and luckily it was just enough."

Pittman credited his crew chief Kale Kahne for making substantial changes after his dash win to give him the car he needed at the end of the feature.

Zemken said her Corr/Pak Merchandising team's third place finish means a lot - especially against the competition.

"It's like a win for us," she said. "To come here with the budget we have and the equipment that we have and be able to be here and be competitive with these guys - it's just awesome."

Zemken, who won her heat race earlier in the night and started the A main in sixth, said her experience at the track helped her understand how the surface would change throughout the night. She said she knew the bottom would be good later after the middle and top went away.

After losing her brakes with four to go, Zemken said she figured her night would be over.

"As soon as the brakes went to floor, I said this is what always happens," she said. "We have a good car, something bad's going to happen… They held up just enough to slow me down to be able to catch the bottom. And when I came up on Schatz I got underneath him a couple of times and I didn't even realize Saldana was a lapped car. I've got to say, that's the first time that I've been able to come around and lap Joey Saldana. I stuck behind him a little bit. I'll take third."

After winning the dash, Pittman started on the front row with David Gravel. As Pittman jumped out to an early lead, Gravel had his hands full with Cody Darrah. The two battled through the opening laps but Donny Schatz looked to take advantage in his STP/Armor All car. He got around Darrah by lap 10, as Gravel maintained the second position.

Farther back, Zemken was making her push forward, getting around Kraig Kinser in the fifth position and then taking the fourth spot from Darrah.

With less than 10 to go, Schatz got around Gravel for the second spot and set his sights on Pittman. As the A main entered its final laps and Pittman battled through lapped traffic, Schatz took one last look at Pittman.

Pittman took the checkered flag in first with Schatz second, Zemken in third, and after a drag race down the front stretch, Gravel in fourth and Darrah in fifth.

Schatz said he worked all night trying to find the right line on the track. He said he wished his team had been able to make a few more changes.

"I tried - that's all you can do," Schatz said. "The car was OK… We'll try harder next week."

The race for the championship remains tight between Pittman and Schatz. 55 points separate the two just past the halfway point of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series crosses the border on Saturday for the start of a three race swing through Canada. Autodrome Drummond in Drummondville, Que., hosts the Outlaws on Saturday, July 26. The Outlaws then make stops at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont., on Sunday, July 27 and Ohswheken Speedway in Ohswheken, Ont., on Tuesday, July 29.

FULTON SPEEDWAY NOTES: Following his win, Daryn Pittman is 55 points out the championship lead… Donny Schatz, Jason Sides and Jessica Zemken all won their heat races at Fulton… David Gravel scored his sixth quick time of the season - the third most of any driver… Larry Wight was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing five positions to finish in ninth.

With Luck on His Side, David Gravel Gets Win at Lebanon Valley Speedway

Gravel scores fourth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season

 

 

WEST LEBANON, N.Y. - July 20, 2014 -David Gravel scored his fourth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season Sunday night at Lebanon Valley Speedway - but if not for a little luck, the result could have been very different.
 

Gravel took the lead in his Roth Motorsports car on a restart following a caution on lap five. He jumped past Kerry Madsen and held the position until another yellow flew on lap 13.

"Kerry kind of jumped me and then I got on the gas and it stumbled real bad," Gravel said. "[The car] didn't take off very good."

Just as the field dove into turn one with Gravel falling back, 20-time champion Steve Kinser wrecked just short of the start-finish line, ending up on his top and bringing out the red flag. Kinser was OK and went on to finish the race in 12th, but not before the field was reset on lap 13 with Gravel again in the lead.

He didn't make the same mistake twice.

"Obviously, I got lucky."

Gravel, who joined the Roth Motorsports team in April and his since scored three wins, thanked his crew members and car owners Dennis and Teresa Roth for giving him the opportunity.

"We're learning every day and it takes a while to gel… they all do an awesome job," Gravel said.

The Watertown, Conn. native said it meant a lot to win so close to home.

"It's awesome," Gravel said. "This track is only an hour and a half away from me and we had a little luck go our way and I took advantage."

For Madsen, Gravel's good fortune meant a second place finish for his American Racing Custom Wheels team.

"I had the lead, and I had the decision to choose top or bottom," Madsen said. "And I won the first start quite convincingly on the top so I thought I would stick with the top and got caught out. That's just part of the game. Then we got that second one and made it work and got the jump but unfortunately the red came out."

Later on in the feature Madsen closed the gap on Gravel but was never able to seriously challenge him.

"We tucked up behind him on green flag runs but it was always going to be difficult to do something. Second is a great result for us."

Points leader Donny Schatz finished the night in third after starting in sixth. He said his car experienced some trouble early on.

"We hurt our motor on lap five - the temperature gauge was pegged," Schatz said. "On the yellows it didn't seem to go down, so that's a common sign of a water pump failure… It didn't necessarily slow down at the end but you could feel it was laboring a lot harder."

In the race for the Outlaws championship, Schatz extended his points lead to 65 over second place Daryn Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is now 106 points out of the lead.

Joey Saldana took home his 19th quick time of the season, posting a 16.620 around the half-mile track.

Fulton Speedway hosts the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series on Wednesday, July 23. The Outlaws then make a three race swing through Canada with stops at Autodrome Drummond in Drummondville, Que., Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont., and Ohswheken Speedway in Ohswheken, Ont.

LEBANON VALLEY SPEEDWAY NOTES: Joey Saldana picked up his 19th quick time of the season at Lebanon Valley… David Gravel scored his sixth career World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win at Lebanon Valley… Steve Kinser started on the pole for the feature… Reigning champion Daryn Pittman was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 5 positions to finish in fourth.

Lance Dewease Leads a Posse Sweep of Williams Grove

Dewease is the 19th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season

 

 

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 19, 2014 - After a nearly three hour rain delay that pushed the start of the feature into the early morning hours of Sunday, Lance Dewease held off Donny Schatz to win night two of Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway. Dewease's win gave the Pennsylvania Posse a sweep of Summer Nationals and made him the 19th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season.

In the closing laps of the feature, Schatz gave Dewease a strong challenge.

"The lapped cars, I had to run the top," said Dewease, driver of the C.C. Dietz Builders car. "That was the only place I was any good at. I was trying to time the lapped cars so I could get a good run going into one so I could fly by them. I got to Chad and the 16 and they were kind of racing each other - kind of watched myself a little bit and I guess I backed off a little too much and let Donny try to slide me."

"This is special for me. It's been a while since I earned one of these flags. Anybody that knows me, this place means a lot to me and I love winning here and beating the Outlaws just makes it all the sweeter. It's a good rivalry between us and the Outlaws. They're great racers, we have great racers and that's what makes it so special."

Dewease, who ended a long drought with his win, scored the 300th win of his career. He has eight previous World of Outlaw wins.

Rain began to fall shortly after 9 p.m. bringing out red flag conditions. The Last Chance Showdown and A main had yet to be run on night two of Summer Nationals.

When track work began two hours later, most of the now wet but enthusiastic Williams Grove crowd remained at the facility. After brief hot laps sessions, the green flag fell on Last Chance Showdown. Dave Blaney went on to win with Brad Sweet, Greg Hodnett and Ryan Smith in close pursuit.

Lance Dewease and Lucas Wolfe led the field to the green flag in the A main. Wolfe, a Mechanicsburg, Pa. native, took an early lead as Schatz, who started fourth, challenged Shane Stewart for the third position. Following a red flag on lap two, Schatz took over the third position.

A caution on lap eight gave Dewease the opportunity he needed to get around Wolfe. Dewease led lap nine as Schatz took over the second place position from Wolfe.

On lap 18, Kraig Kinser experienced an engine failure and dropped oil onto the backstretch and into turns three and four right as the leaders caught up with him. Dewease got around, but Schatz hit the oil in his STP/Armor All car and after doing a complete 360-degree spin, kept his car going, maintaining position. A red flag flew right after, freezing the field as cleanup got underway.

Dewease jumped out to a dominate lead through much of what remained of the feature. Schatz closed the gap as the two encountered lapped traffic with just a few laps remaining. On lap 28, Schatz took one last shot at Dewease but could not get around.

"We ran him back down there at the end," Schatz said. "We needed traffic to win the race. It allowed us to get to him, got underneath him in three and four once but couldn't quite clear him. I thought we would get another run on him in the last lap but he cleared a lapped car and I didn't - just the way it worked."

After leading the first eight laps, Wolfe finished the night in the third position in his Zemco Speed Equipment car.

"It was certainly a little unusual tonight with the rain so we didn't know what the track was going to do," Wolfe said. "I just wasn't good enough there. It saved me having an open red there, I was able to work on it a little bit and salvage third.

"Disappointed to give up such a good opportunity like that, especially as good as the restarts were there on the top… but Lance did a great job. They were certainly a lot better, so congrats to them and their whole group. We'll just keep working on it and improve for the future."

Schatz extended his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 63 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 98 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next makes a swing through New York State, returning to the track Sunday at Lebanon Valley Speedway. Fulton Speedway hosts the Outlaws Wednesday before a three race stretch through Canada.

Posse Strikes Back as Hodnett Bests Marks, Saldana at Williams Grove Speedway

Hodnett becomes the 18th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season; Hodnett and Marks give Posse 1-2 finish

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 18, 2014 - Greg Hodnett led the Pennsylvania Posse to a World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, striking back on night one of the Summer Nationals after Outlaw Daryn Pittman won Thursday night at Lincoln Speedway.

Hodnett, who started the A main in fourth in his Lelands.com/Pasquariello's Auto Shop car, dominated the second half after getting around Outlaw Joey Saldana and fellow Posse Brent Marks on a restart. Hodnett said the double file restarts that had hurt him the night before at Lincoln, helped him at Williams Grove.

"We're just fortunate to be standing here," Hodnett said. "It's a great field of cars."

Hodnett, who has 12 previous World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series wins, became the 18th different winner of the season.

Saldana started on the front row with Justin Barger. Cody Darrah and Hodnett started in row two. As the green flag flew on the feature, Saldana jumped out to a large lead while Brent Marks moved from his sixth place starting position into third.

By lap 13, Marks, who had moved to second, was challenging Saldana for the lead as the two worked through lapped traffic. A red flag flew on lap 15 after contact between Kerry Madsen and Cody Darrah. The wreck ended Madsen's night and relegated Darrah to the back of the field.

When the race returned to green, Hodnett, who had advanced to the third position, made his move. Hodnett got around Marks, and then battled Saldana for the next two laps.

"I had been trying the bottom and middle a couple of times through the night and I knew if I was slow enough we could do it - and off a restart usually you are," Hodnett said. "So we got a good run down the front straight off of four, off the bottom, just kind of let it take its head and stay on the back wheels and try not to slip the tires. We got down into turn one and two, and pretty much just got under Joey enough to keep moving him up and keep pushing, pushing, pushing trying to get under him to get a good, clean run off the bottom. Fortunately for us that's what happened."

Hodnett took the lead on lap 17 and was never seriously challenged again.

"We're going to make the most of this one tonight because you never know when you'll get another one!" Hodnett said."

Marks finished second in his BAPS Auto Paint Supply car after getting around Saldana shortly after the mid-race restart. Despite that, Marks, who was closing the gap on Saldana when the red flag came out, said he did not want to see the race stoppage. He said he screwed up on the restart and that allowed Hodnett to get around him.

He credited his team for providing the equipment he needed to score his best ever Outlaws finish.

"We had a great car all night," Marks said. "I give all the credit to my guys - they bust their butts all the time to get me to the racetrack and we're able to do all these Outlaw races this year which has really helped me out. It got me on the front stretch here with a podium finish - finally.

"It was fortunate we had a really good run tonight. We were able to sneak in there through the invert and win the heat race and get in the dash. Coming from [sixth] to second is pretty neat here with the Outlaws show at Williams Grove. It's a great feeling."

Saldana, who has five wins on the season, closed out the night in the third position in his Motter Equipment car. He credited the competition in Central Pennsylvania and at Williams Grove on Friday night.

"My car was getting looser as the race went on," Saldana said. "I think that's why I took off. I was pretty good way too soon. To win these you've got to be good at the end not the beginning. We just missed it a little bit. You've got to learn from your mistakes and hope that we come out tomorrow and do a better job."

Hodnett and Marks weren't the only members of the Posse to have a good night. Lucas Wolfe scored the quick time and the Posse swept the Heat races. In the first heat race of the night, Ryan Taylor fought a fierce battle with Steve Kinser, beating the 20-time champion on the last lap.

Donny Schatz's points lead continued to shrink after his ninth place finish. He now leads Daryn Pittman by 42 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 87 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to historic Williams Grove Speedway Saturday for night two of the Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

Outlaw Pittman Battles Posse to Win at Lincoln Speedway

Scores his 10th victory of the season, his first ever double-digit Outlaw season; closes championship points gap on Schatz

 

 

ABBOTSTOWN, Pa. - July 17, 2014 - The Pennsylvania Posse gave Daryn Pittman a run for his money Thursday night at Lincoln Speedway - ultimately though the Posse was no match for Pittman as he notched his 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

Pittman, who earlier this season swept both nights at Williams Grove after finishing third at Lincoln in his Great Clips car, credited his crew for providing him with the car he needed Thursday night to hold off strong challenges from J.J. Grasso, Alan Krimes and Brian Montieth.

"How about that crew I've got? Hats off to Kale Kahne. Man, he does a great job," Pittman said. "Kolten, Carber - these guys work their tails off every day and just give me a really good car. I'm only as good as the equipment I use and this car is pretty good every night."

20-time champion Steve Kinser led the field to the green flag but it was Pittman who led the first lap. Early on, J.J. Grasso challenged Pittman, before an issue side-lined Grasso for the night. As Kinser fell back in the field, Posse members Krimes and Montieth made their moves.

As cautions plagued the early laps of the race, Krimes, who started in fourth, advanced his way to second by lap seven. Through restart after restart, Krimes challenged Pittman but was not able to get around. Farther back in the field, Montieth, who started in 15th, had moved into the top-ten by lap eight.

As the laps ticked by, Krimes faced a challenge from Joey Saldana, but was able to hold him off. By lap 11, Montieth, who was dominate on the high-side of the track, had moved into the top-five and shortly after, found his way around Saldana. With his sights set on the lead, just a few laps later, Montieth took over the second spot.

"I knew when there was a car going around me on the outside it was more than likely him," Krimes said. "He gets going around the top pretty good around here. I tried to move up a little bit when he got around us and I was alright in three and four up there, but I wasn't very good in the top of one and two."

As Pittman ran the bottom, Montieth, dominate at the top in his Premiere Auto Works car, picked up position after position. Montieth caught Pittman in turns one and two with 18 complete. As Pittman slid to the top onto the backstretch, Montieth moved to the bottom, drag racing Pittman. Montieth took one last shot, sliding out of four, trying to hold the lead.

"Anybody who's raced here very long knows the last car number they want to see behind them with a couple of laps to go is that 21," Pittman said. "I moved to the top in one and two and the top in three and four and thought that's probably where he's at and I thought if I can make a couple of good laps here, I think we'll be OK."

Montieth was able to close the gap a couple of times as Pittman battled lapped traffic, but was never able to find a way around the Outlaws champion.

With the win, Pittman notched his first ever double-digit win season with the World of Outlaws. He is also now the winningest driver of the season, so far.

"This is a big accomplishment for me personally," Pittman said. "I've never gotten to double-digit wins in one year with the Outlaws so I'm pretty proud of that. This is a tough part of the country to come in and win, and this is probably one of the toughest racetracks to come in and win - just a great accomplishment for this team."

Montieth, a native of Phoenixville, Pa., said he has raced with Pittman enough to know not to show him his line around the track until he knew he could get around Pittman.

"He's raced with me," Montieth said. "I didn't really want to show him my nose until I knew I could get by him. If it weren't for the double restarts; I really made a lot of time up on them. We just keep finishing second a lot - we'll see what happens tomorrow night (at Williams Grove)."

Krimes, who finished the night in third in his Midnight Antiques car, said he was pleased to represent the Pennsylvania Posse fans and drivers.

"It always feels good to represent the local guys here," said Krimes, a Denver, Pa. native. "We've got a great group of guys that run here weekly and anytime you add the Outlaws to the mix there are probably 25 to 30 cars that can win on any given night here. To come out of here in the top three - we beat a lot of really good cars."

Pittman's win, combined with a 14th place finish by points leader Donny Schatz helped him continue to close the gap in the race for the Outlaws championship. Schatz's lead is now only 50 points over Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is 93 points out of the lead.

Earlier in the night, Joey Saldana scored the quick time during time trials. It was his 18th quick time of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Pennsylvania stopping next at the historic Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday nights for Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY NOTES: Tonight's win gave Daryn Pittman his first double digit Outlaws season… Joey Saldana scored his 18th quick time of the season… Cory Haas was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 17 positions after starting in last… The Pennsylvania Posse took three of the top-five top spots at Lincoln.
