At A Glance: One Third of the Way through the Season, the Outlaws Head to the Midwest

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on Attica Raceway Park for the Kistler Engines Classic and I-96 Speedway for the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

Great seats remain for the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan at I-96 Speedway and the Kistler Engines Classic at Attica Raceway Park.

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outlaws Strike Back: Schatz Battles Hodnett for Williams Grove Win

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night as the Outlaws and Posse battle for the Morgan Cup. Tickets remain for the event. Find out more information and buy tickets by visiting http://woosprint.com/morgan-cup.

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See Hodnett, Dietrich and all the local and Outlaws stars as they compete for the Morgan Cup and the bragging rights that go along with it. Get your tickets to the two-night Morgan Cup event at Williams Grove Speedway by visiting the track box office. For event information, visit http://woosprint.com/morgan-cup.

The Outlaws Head to New York and New Jersey

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

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

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

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

Hodnett leads Pennsylvania Posse sweep of the podium

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

Schatz Wins Two in Eldora Speedway 'Mother' Sweep

Second place finisher Gary Taylor scored his best ever Outlaws finish

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wraps up the 'Mother of all Sprint Car Weekends' tomorrow night at Eldora Speedway. The series joins the USAC National Sprint Car Series for the second night of a double header at the historic track. Tickets are still available.

Kenny Wallace Driving Experience Becomes Official Racing Experience of the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing

CONCORD, N.C. - May 4, 2015 - The World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing announce today the Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience will be the Official Driving Experience of the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing.

In addition to a long career in NASCAR, Kenny Wallace has raced on dirt for more than 10 years. Wallace, who won the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Summer Nationals championship in 2012, is eager to showcase his excitement for grassroots racing.

"I have a passion for dirt racing that I'd like to share with all the race fans," Wallace said. "When I look back on the history of auto racing, drivers like Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne all started on dirt. I want the fans to be able to feel what these great drivers have felt in their careers."

Fans can expect to see Kenny Wallace Driving Experience cars on display during select World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, World of Outlaws Late Model Series and Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series events in 2015, and in some cases could win chances to ride along with a professional driver at an event.

"We are very excited to introduce the Kenny Wallace Driving Experience, it's designed to take the average fan and put them behind the wheel of a dirt car," said Kenny Wallace Driving Experience President Mark Ebert. "We will run several different style of dirt cars, including Sprint Cars, Late Models, Northeast Modifieds and UMP Modifieds.

"As the official racing experience of World of Outlaws we'll be able to take the fan experience to the next level and put people in the same style of the cars that they watch at World of Outlaws events. It should let the average fan see just what these guys experience every week!"

At A Glance: As Eldora Approaches, What a Difference a Year Makes

Changes come for last year�s Eldora spring race winners, Shane Stewart and David Gravel

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - May 5, 2015 - History will be made at Eldora Speedway this Friday and Saturday as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and USAC National Sprint Car Series join together for the first time ever in a double-header 'Mother of All Sprint Car Weekends.'

Two World of Outlaws drivers who made a little of their own history last season at the spring Eldora races, David Gravel and Shane Stewart, return to the track after a season of change for both.

When the Outlaws visited the high-banked, half-mile oval in the spring last year, Stewart, the 2005 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, returned with a new team, Larson Marks Racing. The upstart organization, in just their first Outlaws start, took home the win. That opening shot propelled them to two full points wins and a qualifier night win at the Knoxville Nationals during the 2014 season.

With 2015 underway, Stewart already has three wins and currently sits second in the championship points standings behind reigning champion Donny Schatz. Stewart said he would rate his time highly through the first part of the season.

"I'm very proud of my guys," Stewart said. "We're still a new team, we're still learning. We've still got a lot of racing to go. To be where we are at, with what we learned last year, doing what we did, I think it's starting to pay off. It's a long season. I'm excited about where we're at - I think we're in a good position."

As far as his team settling into the grueling Outlaws schedule, Stewart said they have been great.

"My guys are ready," Stewart said. "I've just got to keep myself mentally focused because I haven't done it in a long time. It's not just showing up to the race track. It's what you do after hours trying to take good care of yourself and get good rest. That part of it is what you have really got to watch. You have to be able to do that to keep your sharpness come June, July and August. We're having a good time. It obviously helps when you're racing good and finishing up front - that helps keep the team moral up. So far so good and hopefully we can keep that roll going."

For Gravel, last year at Eldora was his debut with Roth Motorsports. Like Stewart, he closed out the weekend with a big win for his team.

"Definitely huge," Gravel said. "Second night in a new car was awesome. I really like Eldora. I've had some success there and last year was a good year. Started on the pole at King's Royal, finished on the podium. That was really big. Every time we've been to Eldora, we've run well."

Gravel left Eldora with momentum and ultimately scored three more wins in 2014.

In recent weeks, Gravel and Roth parted ways. He immediately picked up a new ride with Destiny Motorsports which saw its own driver change. Gravel said he has learned a lot in the last year.

"I've been through a lot of different cars and have been a lot of different places," Gravel said. "I think now I've been at every Outlaw track that the circuit has, so that's a plus. And you just never get down on yourself. It's a long season and I know I can drive. I know no matter what car I get in, if we work together, I'll be fast. Just move on from night-to-night, don't look back, look forward. Work with your team and you'll get it figured out."

Tickets for the 'Mother of All Sprint Car Weekends' at Eldora Speedway start at just $25. Reserved seats are $4 more. For more information and to buy tickets, visit http://eldoraspeedway.ticketforce.com/.

McMahan Wages Fierce Battle at Tri-State to Score His Second Win of the Season

Ties Bobby Allen for 17th on the all-time wins list; both drivers have 25 career wins

 

 

HAUBSTADT, Ind. - May 3, 2015 - Paul McMahan lived up to his nickname, 'Pauls to the Walls,' Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway as he waged a fierce battle with Brady Bacon and scored his second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the season on a slider with eight laps to go.

"I'll tell you what, man I love this place," McMahan said in victory lane. "This place has been so good to me."

McMahan, who started the night in third, maintained through a caution plagued first third of the race. He got his opportunity to take a shot at the lead on lap 13.

Rico Abreu, who stole the show in the opening laps as he tried every possible line and move to get around Bacon, tried to cross under the leader in turns 1 and 2 for the lead. As he hit the middle of the corner, the lapped car of Kerry Madsen was on the bottom of the track. Abreu made contact with Madsen and subsequently flipped. He was OK.

That moved McMahan into the second position. On the restart, McMahan took up Abreu's mantle and searched for a way around the young driver.

"Brady had an awesome racecar," McMahan said. "In clean air he was a lot better than we were."

Bacon eventually got himself free of McMahan, but as he approached lapped traffic on lap 21, McMahan began closing the gap once again. The pivotal restart came on lap 32 after Shane Stewart got into the turns 1 and 2 wall and brought out a red flag.

"I had one shot at (Bacon) on that restart," McMahan said. "I was able to get a pretty good restart and get a good run on him. Instead of trying to slide him down there in one and two I just thought I'll follow him there and then try to slide him down there. Down in three and four, you get down in there and it takes off on you in the dust. I didn't know if I had enough room or not to go for the lead."

Bacon tried to block McMahan and got pushed up into the turn four wall.

"When he slid me into three I should have just let him go and just crossed back underneath him," Bacon said. "But I tried to block him and we both about crashed off of four."

Bacon lost momentum and was forced to hold off Joey Saldana running in third. He eventually ran McMahan back down but a caution flag came out with three to go.

"That yellow came out and he was just a little better on restarts than I was," Bacon said. "I need to get my car a little better on restarts, that's pretty much what cost me the race."

McMahan parked his car in victory lane, taking home his second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the season.

"We were getting better as the race went on but I still don't think I had enough for Brady until that caution came out," McMahan said.

The win came a night after McMahan got a DNF following an expired engine late in the feature at Pevely. McMahan credited his team and crew chief Barry Jackson with bouncing back after a frustrating night and some recent bad luck.

"Yesterday we were all down in the dumps when we lost a motor," McMahan said. "This is just the way our team is. We just bounce right back and come back and win the race."

With his win Sunday night, McMahan tied Bobby Allen for 17th on the World of Outlaws all-time wins list. Both drivers have 25 wins.

Joey Saldana, who started on the pole, spent much of the night fending off challenges from Kraig Kinser and, later, a surging Donny Schatz for the third position. Saldana briefly gave up the position to Kinser in the middle portion of the race but was able to hold Kinser and Schatz off through multiple restarts.

Saldana said he was disappointed with the night and the finish after starting up front.

"We just missed it," Saldana said. "We over adjusted on our racecar and never had anything for him. Just have to do a better job of it and head into next week. Hopefully we can continue to be consistent like this."

Late in the night Schatz battled with Saldana for the third position but was unable to make the move. He took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award after advancing 16 positions to finish in fourth.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action next week at historic Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio for the 'Mother' of all sprint car weekends.

Christopher Bell Battles at Pevely for Second Ever Outlaws Win

Joey Saldana scores podium finish with an at-the-line pass of Daryn Pittman

 

 

PEVELY, Mo. - May 2, 2015 - Saturday night's Spring Classic at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 was an event no one will soon forget - not least of whom, its winner Christopher Bell and his car owner Keith Kunz.

The epic 40-lap feature at the third-mile bullring was a battle of wills and endurance that pitted some of the greatest veteran, and current and future stars against one another - names like Swindell, Madsen, Sides and Bell. Side-by-side racing, slide jobs and a little bumping and banging led to the second career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win for 20-year-old Bell.

"This is unbelievable," Bell said in victory lane. "I can't thank Keith Kunz enough for this opportunity. It's really awesome. They built this car brand new this off-season. It really shows what good equipment does for you."

For Kunz, a prolific car owner and mechanic, the win came in just his 10th start with his winged sprint car and just third ever Outlaws start. The win was his first ever Outlaws win as an owner.

Bell, who stood in victory lane for the first time with the series last season at Jacksonville Speedway, is the 10th different winner so far in 2015.

The night got off to an unusual start after polesitter Rico Abreu was unable to get his car fired for the feature. That shifted Jason Sides onto the front row with Kerry Madsen. When the green flag flew, Madsen jumped to the lead. By lap five he had already caught lapped traffic as the battles behind him ensued.

Kraig Kinser, Bell and Swindell all fought for the third position. On lap 8, Kinser looked for a way around Bell and as the two came out of four, side-by-side, Bell held onto the position. Three laps later, it was Kinser playing defense as Swindell looked low through turn four and slid past Kinser to take over the fourth position.

Bell meanwhile was charging forward. He got around Sides on lap 12 to take over second and then set his sights on the leader, Madsen. Two laps later, he slid Madsen into turns one and two and took the lead as the two drivers hit the backstretch. Madsen was not done though. He performed a similar move on the following lap and briefly retook the lead as they hit the backstretch, but Bell held on to lead the lap.

As Bell worked to build a lead, Sides battled Madsen for the second spot and found his way around on the low side on lap 19.

A caution flag flew on lap 20, the halfway point of the race, as David Gravel spun on the front straight.

The restart set up an opportunity for Swindell. When the field returned to green, the 294-time Outlaws winner cleared Madsen and Sides and then got around Bell off of turn four as the two completed lap 21. The move was short-lived for Swindell though as Bell battled back around the veteran driver to retake the lead on lap 24. Through the next several laps, the three way battle between Madsen, Bell and Swindell continued.

Madsen, then running in the third position, nearly met disaster on lap 26. As he entered turn one he slid the car, it caught, and almost sent the driver around. Sides took over the position as Madsen slipped back. Just a few laps later, Sides was back to battling Swindell for the second spot - a fight that lasted for the next several laps.

It was critical lapped traffic that finally provided Sides with the opportunity he needed. As he and Swindell worked to complete lap 37, he was able to get side-by-side going into turns three and four. That lapped car, hanging onto the middle, slowed up Swindell enough that Sides was able to get around.

Sides took over second and then started making up ground on Bell who was struggling through traffic.

"The lapped cars got to where they were getting around here pretty good," Bell said. "I could run up to them, but I couldn't get off them to slide them. I kind of messed around a bit and lost a bunch of ground. Had to realize that I had to catch them and get up to their bumper before I could pull the trigger."

As Sides closed, a caution flew for Paul McMahan who slowed on the front with an expired engine. With just two laps remaining, this meant a single file restart and green-white-checkered finish.

Bell quickly built up a lead when the field returned to racing. As Sides fell in behind Bell, the battle for third heated up. Swindell slipped on the start which provided Pittman the opportunity he needed to get around. A surging Saldana, who started in 18th, looked to make up a few more spots.

Bell took the checkered flag followed by Sides in second. With the checkered in sight Pittman and Saldana were side-by-side coming off of turn four. The drag race to the finish favored Saldana by a nose.

Sides, who has been on the upswing so far this season, said starting on the front row was not an ideal situation for his style but he complimented crew members Paul Sides and Scott Gerkin with working hard to give him the equipment he needs to be in contention.

"We had a good racecar. We put ourselves in contention to have a good run," Sides said. "Everybody who is working on this car, we're knocking on the door and hopefully we can get a win soon."

After advancing 15 positions through the feature, in addition to owning a podium finish, Saldana took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger award. He said a little trial and error helped put his Motter Equipment team in position at I-55 on Saturday night.

"We've been fighting our car at tracks like this and we tried something crazy tonight and it actually worked," Saldana said. "I actually think at the beginning of the race, we had a really good car and it just kept getting better and better and better. It's very positive that we can come out of Pevely with a good solid top-3 knowing we had more there. I'll take it to Haubstadt tomorrow."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wraps up three straight days of racing with a visit to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. tomorrow night. Great tickets remain. Visit the track or http://www.WoOSprint.com for more information.

Sweet Homecoming Victory for Shane Stewart at Salina

Stewart was joined on the podium by fellow Oklahome-native Daryn Pittman

 

 

SALINA, Okla. - May 1, 2015 - What a sweet homecoming it was for Bixby, Okla.-native Shane Stewart on Friday night as he stood in victory lane at Salina Highbanks Speedway with his third World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the season.

"This was one of the tracks that I really, really wanted to win at this year," Stewart said. "It's really, really good to win in front of my fans and all my friends and family. I've got Jenn and Nixon here with me. It's a good night."

Stewart battled past Brad Sweet and Aaron Reutzel, and through several restarts throughout the 25-lap feature.

"I just wasn't sure what was going to happen on the restarts," Stewart said. "Sometimes they help you, sometimes they don't. We were able to get a pretty good jump on Brad and then a couple of yellows came out and I wasn't really sure where to go. And that's how the restarts work out here. Some of them work and some of them don't."

Stewart's third World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season puts him second only to Donny Schatz in total wins. Schatz's lead in the championship standings is down to six points over Stewart.

Sweet led the field to the green flag but it was Reutzel, in his first ever World of Outlaws start, who led the first five laps of the night after a red flag and then caution flew in the opening laps. Sweet had his sights set on the lead though and by lap five, he found his way around Reutzel.

Two laps later, as the leaders began working their way through lapped traffic, Stewart, who started third and was running in that position in his Larson Marks Racing car, battled past Reutzel to take over the second position.

Kraig Kinser spun on the backstretch just as the field completed lap 9. The subsequent restart proved pivotal.

Stewart battled past Sweet for the lead as 2013 series champion Daryn Pittman got around Reutzel to take over the third position.

Caution flags flew in the waning laps and each time, Sweet tried to regain his spot. Stewart held tough though and built up a sizable lead. He took the checkered flag in first followed by Sweet and Pittman.

"I just didn't choose the right line on the restart," Sweet said. "We just didn't take off good enough. I don't know what I did wrong. It just didn't work out in our favor. We'll just try to keep working hard. We had a fast car all night so that's something to stay positive about."

Pittman, a native of Owasso, Okla., said he is feeling better following a crash at Placerville (Calif.) Speedway last month that sidelined him for a weekend with a broken collarbone, but still had some work to do. Like Stewart, Pittman said a win in Oklahoma is one he really wanted.

"Man, I've been coming here and been in all four of these races and wanted to win this one bad," Pittman said. "If I couldn't do it, I'm pretty proud of Shane to be able to do it and for us to have two Okie boys up here on the front row - I'm pretty proud of that. We grew up racing together and it's a lot of fun to come back and race. We've got some big races this weekend and I've got some confidence going into those."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the Spring Classic. The series then heads east to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. on Sunday, May 3. Great tickets remain for both events. Visit http://www.WoOSprint.com for more information.

At A Glance: Stewart and Pittman Return to their Roots

The Oklahoma natives lead the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series north from 'The Sooner State' to Missouri and Indiana

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - April 28, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on three straight nights of racing action this weekend as the series travels to Salina, Okla., Pevely, Mo. and Haubstadt, Ind.

The series' return to Salina Highbanks Speedway in Oklahoma on Friday represents a homecoming for two series regulars - Daryn Pittman and Shane Stewart. Pittman is a native of Owasso, Okla. while Stewart hails from nearby Bixby, Okla.

Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, has two wins so far this season - one during DIRTcar Nationals in Florida and another at Antioch Speedway one month ago.

Though he does not have a lot of experience at Salina, Pittman said he looks forward to racing at the 3/8 mile oval every year.

"It's an awesome racetrack - probably one of the best ones close to Tulsa," Pittman said. "I had probably only raced there twice before the Outlaws started going there. It's definitely not a place that I have any sort of advantage or a lot of laps at."

"(My wife Mandy and I have lived) in Indianapolis for 12 years and I don't even remotely think of Indiana races as home races for me. My home races are Devil's Bowl and Salina and places that are close to my friends and family growing up from Oklahoma. I look forward to it. It's a lot of fun to go back and see people you don't see very often at those races once a year. For it to be such a cool racetrack makes it even better."

Stewart, a former Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year award recipient, returned to the World of Outlaws full-time this season for the first time since 2005. He echoed Pittman's sentiments.

"I haven't raced at Salina that many times but obviously being born and raised around Tulsa, of course, all my friends and family will be there," Stewart said. "(The Devil's Bowl and Salina weekends) were the races I wanted to do good at just because there's going to be a few sponsor people there with our team and obviously having friends and family there you want to do good in front of them. They're all busy, working people so they don't get to travel to come see me race as much as they would like."

So far this season, Stewart has scored two wins and maintained a steady consistency that has put him just 26 points behind reigning series champion Donny Schatz.

"I'm excited about where we're at," Stewart said. "I think we're in a good position and if we can keep plugging along here and keeping Schatz honest, hopefully when it comes down to Charlotte at the end of the year, hopefully we have a shot. I think if we can keep putting ourselves into position, I think we'll be OK."

Following Friday night's Salina event, the series heads north to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. on Saturday night and then Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. on Sunday.

The Texas Outlaw: Donny Schatz Wins at Devil�s Bowl Speedway

Becomes the second ever winner of the Texas Outlaw Nationals� Ted Johnson Memorial trophy

 

 

MESQUITE, Tex. - April 25, 2015 - The Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil's Bowl Speedway on Saturday night was a battle between two drivers and the lapped traffic that lay ahead. When the checkered flag fell on the $20,000-to-win, 30-lap feature, it was Donny Schatz who scored the coveted Ted Johnson Memorial trophy and his sixth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Schatz led the field to the green flag. A red flag flew on the start catching up several cars including 294-time series winner Sammy Swindell. The field reset and returned to green.

Schatz led the first lap and maintained that position through the opening portion of the feature. The six-time champion caught lapped traffic on lap five and second place Shane Stewart began to catch. On lap seven, Stewart got his opportunity to take the lead.

"I knew he was a little better off the bottom of two than I was up top but I had to give it a shot," Stewart said.

Stewart slid Schatz as the two drivers came off of turn two onto the back straight using the Kyle Hirst as a pick.

"You get to a lapped car, you try to do something to get around them," Schatz said. "Shane capitalized on it. Sometimes the best place to be is running second when you hit those spots. He got by us."

For the next eight laps, Stewart worked to build up a lead over Schatz. But as he worked his way through traffic, Schatz caught back up to the Larson Marks Racing driver. On lap 16, it was Schatz back in prime position to take back the lead. In a move reminiscent of Stewart's pass for the lead several laps earlier, Schatz, on the bottom, slid Stewart as the drivers came off of turn two onto the back straight.

"You just can't make any mistakes with him running behind you," Stewart said of Schatz. "He lost the lead doing that and of course I did too."

Farther back in the field, Logan Schuchart, who started third, held off challenges from Jason Sides for the position. Sides eventually found his way around Schuchart's Shark Racing car on lap 19. The move was short lived though as Kraig Kinser battled his Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 11K car forward after falling back to fifth in the opening laps. Kinser got around Schuchart on lap 24 and then around Sides with four laps to go to take over the third position.

As the race wound down, Stewart tried to close the gap on Schatz's No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car for the lead.

"Anytime (Schatz is) out front he sets a pretty torrid pace," Stewart said. "I was trying to stay with him just in case he got caught up in lapped traffic."

Ultimately it was Schatz who donned the Outlaws cowboy hat and hoisted the Ted Johnson Memorial trophy in victory lane. He is just the second driver to have his name engraved on the award.

"It's fun racing with Shane. He's a class act. He races hard and he races clean and it's fun to come out on the better end of him," Schatz said. "Never been so proud to wear a hat in my life."

Schatz said getting through traffic and anticipating the challenges from behind were the key for the night.

"Well you've got to expect it - you don't know if he's there or not," Schatz said. "You've got to go as hard as you can and try not to make mistakes. And if you've got to move around, you move around. That we did. Getting through traffic - that's what wins and loses these races. That's what has lost me a lot of races and that's what's won me a lot too."

It was the sixth win of the season for Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team. He currently leads the championship points standings by 26 over second place Stewart.

Stewart said he was disappointed with his finish but pleased with the way the 2015 season has gone so far for his team.

"I really, really wanted to win this race," Stewart said. "I've got a lot of friends and family here. It was a race that I had on my radar that I really wanted to win. This Eneos/GoPro car has been really good all season and (crew members Scotty Martin and Andrew Seamans) once again gave me a good car. It's always fun to be able to race for the lead, to be able to race up front like we've been able to do all year. Definitely a dream come true for me."

Kinser, who finished third and in the process scored his first podium finish of the season, said the finish was one his team needed.

"We struggled a little bit the last month and a half," Kinser said. "Just to get up here on the front stretch with these two guys is an accomplishment right now for us. Hopefully this will give us some momentum going into the rest of the year."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action next Friday night, May 1 at Salina (Okla.) Highbanks Speedway. That is the first of a three night stretch that also takes the Outlaws to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. for the Spring Classic on Saturday, May 2 and Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind. on Sunday, May 3. Great tickets remain for all three events. Visit http://www.WoOSprint.com for more information.

At A Glance: The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Returns Home to Devil�s Bowl

As the series celebrates the �80s and welcomes back Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell, the Outlaws sound off on the birthplace of the series

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - April 21, 2015 - In 1978 Ted Johnson brought together a group of sprint car drivers to form a national touring series, the World of Outlaws. And on March 18 of that year, the series held its first ever event at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Tex.

47 years the later, the series again returns to its birthplace to take on the Texas Outlaw Nationals this Friday and Saturday night. As the series celebrates the winners of the 1980s this year, two winners from that era, 20-time Outlaw champion Steve Kinser and 294-time series winner Sammy Swindell, will join the Outlaw regulars in competing for the Texas Outlaw Nationals title.

For the full-time competitors of the series, Devil's Bowl Speedway is a special place with history and memories.

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

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"It's fun because the historical thing is always cool - just to be part of something that's been going on for a longtime. I like Devil's Bowl - I made both nights there last year. I think it's a neat thing and I'm happy to be back."

Your father and car owner, Bobby Allen, is a previous winner at Devil's Bowl.

"My dad's won at a lot of places so I hope that means he's got the hot setup to make us go faster. And I hope I can drive the car good enough to put us up in a good position to be in the dash and up front in the main, and hopefully contend for a win."

David Gravel, No. 7 Destiny Motorsports, Destiny Motorsports

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

" It's definitely really cool because it's where it all started for the World of Outlaws. It's a unique racetrack. I ran there last year and have a little bit of experience as a driver at the track. Having a couple of starts there as a driver is definitely helpful."

Kraig Kinser, No. 11k Mesilla Valley Transportation, Steve Kinser Racing

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"Especially with sprint car racing you hit the big three places - Knoxville, Eldora, Williams Grove. Those are the biggest races but you've got to talk about Devil's Bowl. This is where it all started. It's a big track."

"People around there love that place. I ran there a few times really early in my career and then we went through a long dry spell where we didn't race there until last year. It was good to be there last year and it's definitely good to be getting back to a track that's got that tie with the Outlaws. It's a good feeling and hopefully we'll have some success there."

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

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"That's why I joined the World of Outlaws, to be able to race at the historic places, the big tracks. Devil's Bowl has a huge history with the sport. Last year was my first year on there. It had a great atmosphere about it and everyone was so excited to be there which makes the event."

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

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"My hero won the very first final points night at Devil's Bowl and first Outlaws race so it's cool. Last year, going there, and seeing the No. 21 car was really cool. It's a very historical place. It's right up there with Knoxville and Eldora with what's gone on over the years at Devil's Bowl. Lanny has done a great job with the racetrack. I used to go there back when I was racing in California and the Outlaws would finish the season there. That was always a good time and I always enjoyed it. It's a unique place with the elevated back straightaway. It's one of the premier racetracks in the country."

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

You won at Devil's Bowl last year, how much confidence does that give your team going in to the race?

"I'm excited to go back. Devil's Bowl is a fun place. It's close to home, close to family. It's a place I grew up racing at. I was excited to go there last year. I couldn't have had a better return getting the win on the final day. I just really enjoyed it. It's a race I've been looking forward to going back to since I saw it on the schedule and know that you're going to make a return. I'm confident in our team and know that we can go there and repeat."

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

You are one of just four Outlaw regulars who have won a race at Devil's Bowl and you have some more experience going back years. How helpful is that to you as a driver and for your team?

"It's very helpful. It's cool that the track is back on the schedule - it's where the Outlaws should be. It's a cool race track and there's a lot of support for sprint car racing there. It was a home run last year. I thought they had a great crowd and great race. I'm looking forward to racing there - it suits what we do really well."

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"For myself my dad won the Summer Nationals and the Winter Nationals there. That was pre-World of Outlaws. I was lucky enough to win them too. That was cool winning something that my dad won too. And then it left and now it's back on. Hopefully it continues to stay on our schedule. It's got a great history and a lot of great racers have won there."

Donny Schatz, No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"Well that's what has made the racing for guys like me that want to be out here. Everybody starts out here with a dream and you do that going to all of these historic places. Devil's Bowl is one that was absent from the schedule for a longtime. It's back on the schedule and we went there last year and had a great time, and we get to go back there again. It means a lot to go to those places. "

You won at Devil's Bowl last year and are only one of four full-time Outlaws with a win at the track. How much confidence does that give you going in to this weekend's event?

"It doesn't give you any confidence. What you've done in the past doesn't give you any confidence for tomorrow. Experience might a little bit but just because you've won there doesn't mean you're going to go there and be good. Track prep and all of the things leading up to the race dictate a lot about what's going to happen and how things play out. We do our best to stay on top of things."

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

You don't have much experience at Devil's Bowl as a driver. How is that challenge different from a normal night for you?

"We go to a couple of new tracks this year, so we've got to go into it with the same attitude we had last year. Mostly last year the attitude we had going into every race is that it's a new track and hopefully we figure it out when we get there in warm ups so we can have a good start to the night. At least adapt after warm ups and get a good time trial spot. Thankfully there are some notes in our notebook that will help me. I'll at least have a car to start from and be able to adapt to the track as a driver."

Devil's Bowl holds a lot of history for the series and has a special connection to your family - your grandfather Bobby Allen is a previous winner.

"I've seen videos of my grandfather racing there. Some of the first starts the Outlaws had. That part is pretty cool. It's definitely a different track the way it's shaped. I enjoy going to different tracks throughout the country and I'm looking forward to Devil's Bowl."

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

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to compete at such an historic track?

"We actually started racing there with 360s back in '93, '94. To go back there and run with the Outlaws - I always used to watch it on TV. It's where the Outlaws started so there's a lot of history there. It's always fun to go back. Lanny and Beverly have always done a really good job with the track. They keep improving it so it's great to go back there."

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

You are from Oklahoma and have raced in other regional series that make regular appearances at Devil's Bowl. What has been your experience at the track over the years?

"A lot. It's one of the so called local tracks that I grew up racing being based in Tulsa. Back when I started that was one of the races that we could always make was the Devil's Bowl Outlaw races. Of course, they went there in the spring and the fall. ASCS went there a lot. I've raced Devil's Bowl many times. I'm definitely looking forward to getting back there. I was really excited to see that track get put back on the schedule last year. There's a lot of history there as everybody knows with the Outlaws. It has been one of the races that's been on my radar since last year, even though we didn't follow the series. I knew we were working to getting to that point this year. That is one of the races I want to do really well at. Hopefully that comes true."

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

What does it mean to you as a driver to be able to go to a track like Devil's Bowl with a lot of history for the series?

"I grew up racing and watching the Outlaws go there. For whatever reason we didn't go there for a long time. Now that I'm part of the Outlaws it's nice we're going back to a place like that that has so much history. It's a great place. The fans come out which is nice. I just hope it's one of those events that keeps getting built up and we go there for a long time. It puts on great racing."

A Tale of Two Ends: McMahan Scores His First Win of the Season

With his win at Perris, the CJB Motorsports driver is the ninth different winner of the season

 

 

PERRIS, Calif. - April 18, 2015 - Saturday night's SoCal Showdown at Perris Auto Speedway was a tale of two ends - the scramble at the beginning and the pass at the end.

After a three lap scrum to start the feature, Kerry Madsen battled past Donny Schatz to take over the lead. It was then Joey Saldana who fought his way past Madsen. Ultimately though, the night belonged to Paul McMahan who got around Saldana on the second to last lap and took home his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"We qualified well and we were just trying things all night long and we just went back to normal," McMahan said. "I tell you what, the car was phenomenal. I could run the top and bottom of one and two and three and four I was coming in around the top. It started taking a little rubber or cleaned off a lot and Joey just got held up with lapped traffic and I was able to get to him. And then got down in there and was able slide up in front of him. Going to victory lane - I'll tell you it's awesome to win here in Perris."

McMahan's win made him the ninth different winner of a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event so far this season. With 24 career wins, he is now just one win away from tying Bobby Allen for 17th on the all-time wins list.

The night was notable early on as the first time the series has used a new format for fields under 21 cars. After qualifying, there were two heat races with the winner and top qualifier in each transferring to the Dash. Then there were two qualifier races - the fields were set by Heat race finishing position - where the winner and top qualifier in each transferred to the Dash.

Donny Schatz won the Dash and led the field to the feature green flag. As the field entered turn one, Madsen dove in and slid Schatz onto the backstretch. Schatz drag raced Madsen to turn three and briefly retook the lead before Madsen got back around him. Madsen led one more lap before Saldana charged forward.

As they rounded turn four approaching the start finish line on lap three, Saldana went high onto the front straight and took over the lead. McMahan, meanwhile, battled from his fourth place starting position, around Madsen and Schatz to take over the second place position.

Saldana hit lapped traffic on lap seven, but continued to expand his lead through much of the 30-lap feature which went flag-to-flag without a caution. Schatz, who started the night on the pole, slipped back as far as sixth. The Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver began to make his march back to the front on lap 23. He got around Brad Sweet, then Madsen and finally around Stewart, who sits second in the championship standings behind Schatz, to take over the third position.

In the waning laps, McMahan began to make his push forward and was able to close the gap as Saldana got bunched up in lapped traffic. As the two drivers rounded the track with two laps to go, McMahan was able to get a run on Saldana coming off of turn two and drag race past the Motter Motorsports No. 71m. Saldana tried to retake the position, but it was McMahan who crossed the finishline in first.

"That was my only shot," McMahan said about the pass on Saldana. "I wasn't going to be able to follow him around there and to be able to pass him - Joey was keeping up a pretty good pace there. The middle is kind of dirty and that's what we were kind of banking on. I was able to get through there clean and slide up in front of him."

Saldana and his Motter Motorsports team hosted Workshops for Warriors, a non-profit dedicated to training military veterans for manufacturing careers, on Saturday night at Perris. Saldana finished the night in second.

"It's huge for us right now," Saldana said. "I've been struggling so it's nice to get a good result for our Workshop for Warriors tonight. We had a good car here."

Schatz said his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car was good heading into the feature but took a while to get up to speed.

"We missed it a little bit," Schatz said. "I was in the wrong part of the race track at all the right time so it's just the way it goes. I made some mistakes tonight… but had we were able to get back going there at the end and had a shot just came up a little short."

Two-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion Jason Meyers, who filled in through the final four races of the California stretch for an injured Jason Johnson, took home the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award after advancing four positions to finish in eighth.

Shane Stewart Scores Second Win of the Season

The Larson Marks Racing driver narrows his deficit in the championship standings to 22 points behind Schatz after Keller Auto Speedway Win

 

 

HANFORD, Calif. - April 17, 2015 - Shane Stewart scored his second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season in dominant fashion Friday night at Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds.

The Larson Marks Racing driver battled past Bud Kaeding to start the feature and through early cautions and lapped traffic, Stewart never looked back.

"It was such a really slow paced race, it's so hard to judge how fast you need to push yourself," Stewart said in victory lane. "It was just a really, really tricky track. These races are so hard to win and to get two wins already before we get off the west coast swing is just a true testament to this team."

Stewart inched closer to reigning World of Outlaws champion Donny Schatz in championship points standings. He is now just 22 points back after 16 races.

California-native Bud Kaeding started the feature on the pole with Stewart in second. When the green flag waved, Kaeding jumped to a solid start as Stewart bobbled. By the time the two came around for the first lap however, Stewart had battled past Kaeding and led the first lap. Brad Sweet was the biggest beneficiary of the start as he advanced to third by lap 1 and second by lap 2. Paul McMahan took over the third spot on lap two.

The first caution flag fell on lap five as the No. 37 car of Michael Faccinto stopped just off the back straight. A quick red followed on the restart after David Gravel's No. 83 car flipped on the back. He was OK. Two more cautions came out in the laps that followed.

One driver who was able to take advantage of the restarts was Schatz. He started in the 16th position and by lap 10 had worked his way to eighth. On the final restart of the night on lap 11, Schatz was able to battle past four cars to take over the fourth position. He ended the night as the KSE Racing Hard Charger Award recipient after advancing 12 positions.

Lapped traffic came into play for Stewart on lap 16 and he worked hard to maneuver his No. 2 Eneos/GoPro car through. With Sweet catching in second, Stewart nearly cost himself the lead as a lapped car slowed him off of turn four.

"When it gets that slow, you know you can't hesitate, especially with these guys," Stewart said. "I was thinking that if I did get too slow off of four then some guy is going to duck underneath coming off the bottom."

He was able to maintain his lead.

When the checkered flag fell, Stewart had built up a sizable lead and lapped up to 11th place.

"Everything worked out well for us tonight," Stewart said. "It starts at the beginning of the night… Hopefully lady luck stays with us throughout the season."

Sweet, who has two wins on the season, said he was happy with the consistency of his No. 49 Razor Back Professional Tools team.

"We started seventh in the dash and moved forward there to fourth," Sweet said. "Started fourth, moved to second. We would have liked to have won it but on nights like this, we're really happy with the podium finish. We've been trying to build some consistency with these cars."

After bad luck last weekend at Calistoga, McMahan, a California-native and veteran at Hanford, said it was good to get over the hump and finish well with his CJB Motorsports team.

"I had two bad days and then a bad experience going home so hopefully we got all the bad out of the way," McMahan said. "Very tricky race track, very dirty running the bottom. You just kind of had to bide your time on the time in lapped traffic, wait to catch… We had a good race car. I've run a lot of laps at this place and means a lot to be here and finish on the podium."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series closes out the spring California swing tomorrow night at the SoCal Showdown at Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. Great seats remain and can be purchased at the track's ticket booth.

At A Glance: Jason Sides on the Move with Scott Gerkin

The Bartlett, Tenn.-native is knocking on the door of a win as the series moves to Keller Auto Speedway and Perris Auto Speedway

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - April 15, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wraps up its spring California swing this weekend at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif. and Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway. One driver who is experiencing a renaissance as the season gets into full swing is Jason Sides.

The Bartlett, Tenn.-native moved into 2015 after a disappointing run the previous season. Sides, a 13-time series winner, finished 2014 with no wins and only three top-five finishes.

So far this year, he has five top-five finishes and has found himself on the podium in the last three straight races, including a season-best second place finish last weekend at Calistoga.

"Right now it's started off pretty good," Sides said of 2015 after good runs in Florida at DIRTcar Nationals and success toward the latter end of the California swing.

One important addition for Sides and his team this season is Scott Gerkin.

Gerkin, the longtime and prolific crew chief for Steve Kinser, is a master engine tuner and innovator in the sport. The series veteran is also known for his work teaching many others around the garage. He was honored in the off-season with the Ted Johnson Memorial Award for Outstanding Contribution to Sprint Car Racing.

"We've been friends for a longtime and having him over here has helped us tremendously just not having to do so much with just myself and (crew member/brother Paul Sides)," Sides said. "He's brought a lot of knowledge and it's been good to just be able to bounce stuff off of him and back and forth. It makes for a fun night."

Sides is on the hunt for his first win this season. His last win came toward the end of the 2012 season at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo. As he looks to the rest of the season, Sides said consistency is the key for success.

"You really need to be consistent every night, in and out," he said. "The biggest thing is getting out of California. We haven't always run good here. We get back East a little bit and hopefully we can get things turned around and have a little more consistency as far as top-fives. If you're in the top-five the wins will come and hopefully we can just be up there."

Schatz Overcomes Illness, Battles Past Dollansky to Score Calistoga Win

It is the fifth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the season for the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver

 

 

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 12, 2015 - Donny Schatz powered past two formidable foes in Sunday night's Wine Country Outlaw Showdown at Calistoga Speedway - illness and Craig Dollansky.

"I was a little nervous there," Schatz said in victory lane. "These guys carried this whole race team tonight. I don't know what I did last night - either I've got the flu coming on again or something but I feel like hell. I've been having the chills here for the last hour but I'm just glad to get the win."

It was the fifth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season for Schatz - the most of any driver so far this season. The six-time series champion also extended his points lead over second place Shane Stewart to 30.

While the night may have belonged to Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team, it was series veterans Craig Dollansky and Jason Sides, with an appearance from Shane Stewart, who put on the biggest show throughout the feature.

Dollansky, who has 59 series wins and last stood in victory lane at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 nearly two years ago, led the field to the green flag. By lap six, the Elk River, Minn.-native had built up a sizable half-straightaway lead. Then disaster nearly struck. As Dollansky exited turn two on lap seven, he nearly lost control of his car.

"Initially they had rolled the top in and I had raced more around the top part and it was coming apart - some ruts were developing in both corners," Dollansky said.

The driver recovered and maintained the lead, but Schatz was able to close the gap.

In the third position, Joey Saldana, who started the night in fifth but battled forward in the opening lap, was fending off a challenge from third place starter Jason Sides. After a two lap fight, Sides took over the position on lap nine.

A three-way battle at the front commenced with Schatz trying to get around Dollansky while fending off a challenge from Sides. Both Schatz and Sides got around Dollansky on lap 12. A caution flag flew the next lap by.

Dollansky ultimately slipped as far as the fourth position before he worked his way back to second. A caution flag with eight to go bunched the field back up and gave Dollansky and Stewart the opportunity they needed.

On the restart, the Destiny Motorsports driver powered his No. 7 Aggressive Hydraulics car forward. He battled Schatz through the next several laps as he tried to regain the lead. Stewart got around Sides to take over the third position, but it was a short-lived five laps, as Sides worked his way back.

As Schatz extended the lead for his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car in the final three laps, all eyes turned to the battle for second. Dollansky and Sides worked the low side and the middle on the cushion - Dollansky held off Sides with two to go.

"Then the last lap, Craig was hung on the outside there and I just kept hitting the bottom," Sides said. "There was a little bit of moisture coming down the front straightaway and I hit it and drag raced by him."

With the checkered flag in the air, Sides drag raced his No. 7s Mesilla Valley Transportation car past Dollansky to the finishline, taking home a second place finish.

"It's just one of those things where we just kept plugging away on the bottom," Sides said. "We were actually pretty good early. Some of the cautions there we felt like we had a right rear flat and it took three or four laps to get back going but the longer it went, the better it was and we'd get back on a rhythm."

Dollansky led the first 12 laps of the feature on the way to scoring the best finish of the season for his team.

"We're leaps and bounds ahead of where we have been and this Destiny Motorsports team is just going to keep working hard," Dollansky said. "These two guys who beat us tonight, they've been on their game and obviously Donny has been in a class of his own for a while. I raced with him, raced with Jason, some good clean racing. Those guys are the best it gets."

After a run Saturday night at Calistoga that saw his team as far back eighth, Schatz said they learned from their mistakes and entered the night with changes in mind. As Dollansky set the pace early, Schatz said he was confident the bottom line would be the best as the night wore on.

"I didn't figure it would come in until we got to traffic and (Jason) kind of showed me the bottom there and got down there and was able to get by Craig and stay there," Schatz said. "The car just got better and better and better, and that's what this Bad Boy team does. They just make phenomenal decisions and do all the right things."

Logan Schuchart was the night's KSE Racing Hard Charger, advancing 11 positions to finish in eighth.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wraps up its spring California swing next weekend at Keller Auto Speedway at King's Fairgrounds in Hanford and Perris (Calif.) Auto Speedway.

Brad Sweet Powers to Emotional Calistoga Speedway Victory

Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb has three straight wins at the half-mile oval

 

 

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 11, 2015 - Brad Sweet, Joey Saldana and Rico Abreu put on a show in front of a packed Calistoga Speedway Saturday night, trading the lead and battling for the win on the opening night of the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown.

Ultimately, it was Sweet who powered his No. 49 Razorback Tools car to the front and scored his second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"I don't know if we dominated," Sweet said in victory lane. "But we drove our butts off and worked hard. We've been struggling, having a little bad luck and the boss got on us a little bit - so it was nice to be able to bring it to victory lane."

Sweet's win gave Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb its third straight win at the track since 2014. The Grass Valley, Calif.-native dedicated the win to his grandmother, who was with him and his team in victory lane at the track last season.

"This one is for my grandmother JoAn," said an emotional Sweet in victory lane. "She passed away not too long ago and she was standing right here last year with us, so this one's for her."

After a quicktime and Dash win earlier in the night, Joey Saldana, who holds the Calistoga Speedway track record, led the field to the green flag, but it was Rico Abreu who led the first lap.

Abreu held onto the lead through a red flag on lap five. When the field returned to green, Saldana struck back, taking over the lead once again, while Sweet moved into second.

"The restarts were key to getting second," Sweet said. "Clean air was a big deal."

A caution fell on the next lap and setup another restart. Sweet looked for the lead and battled Saldana side-by-side through lap seven, but Saldana held on. By lap 12, Sweet had again closed the gap with Saldana.

A two lap clash for the lead ensued. Through three and four on lap 15, Sweet got the momentum he needed to get around Saldana and lead the lap.

"Once we got in front of Joey there, my car really took off," Sweet said. "We were good. That cushion got thicker and thicker. Luckily I was able to get through lapped cars."

Once in traffic, Saldana slid back, as Abreu took over the second position and made another run at the lead.

Farther back, Jason Sides and Shane Stewart worked their way around Saldana and tried to find a way around each other. The Larson Marks Racing No. 2 got around Sides on lap 16. Sides tried to take the position back with his No. 7s Wetherington Tractor Service car, but Stewart held him off.

Abreu, then in second, saw his night end prematurely as the field worked its way around the half-mile track on lap 23. As he drove through turn three, Abreu flipped which left his car in a heap at the top of turns three and four. Abreu was OK but his car was not. He closed out the night in 22nd after leading the first five laps of the race.

The field returned to green with just three laps remaining in the 25-lap feature. Stewart moved into the second position after Abreu's crash as Sides took over third. As Sweet built up a sizeable lead in the final two laps, Sides tried to make a move on Stewart, but Stewart held him off. Stewart ended the night in second, Sides in third and Donny Schatz in fourth.

Stewart, who remains second in the series' championship standings behind Schatz, said he expected the track to be different for tomorrow night's Wine Country Outlaw Showdown finale at Calistoga Speedway.

"The track ended up being really, really nice during the A main," Stewart said. "I haven't been here in a long time but the improvements they have made are unbelievable. Probably one of the nicest tracks, as far as good looking and the scenery and everything, that we race at. It's a great night for our guys - hopefully we can come back tomorrow and be one spot better."

Sides came into the night with three-top five finishes. With his third place run at Calistoga Saturday night, the Bartlett, Tenn.-native has already bested his 2014 top-five total.

"We've just had some good runs the last couple of weeks," Sides said. "I think you carry that momentum from racetrack to racetrack. As long as we're having good runs hopefully that can continue."

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and King of the West Series return to Calistoga Speedway Sunday night for the conclusion of the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown.

Jason Meyers, Cody Darrah Fill-In at Calistoga Speedway

Meyers takes over for Jason Johnson, Darrah for Daryn Pittman following injuries at Placerville Speedway

 

 

CALISTOGA, Calif. - April 10, 2015 - As the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series rolls into Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown this weekend, two former series regulars, Jason Meyers and Cody Darrah, will join the field, filling in for injured drivers Jason Johnson and Daryn Pittman.

Meyers, a two-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and only series champion from California, will fill in for Johnson through the series' final four races in the Golden State.

"This is certainly not the circumstance I would have liked to be able to get back in the racecar but I am grateful to be able to help out and support Jason, Bobbi and their team," Meyers said. "I look forward to getting them some good finishes close to home and be of help to the team."

Johnson sustained a fractured back in a crash at Placerville Speedway on Wednesday. The driver has left the hospital but a timetable for his return is still uncertain. Johnson's wife Bobbi said doctors have told them Johnson's recovery will likely take between six and 12 weeks.

The team will stay out with the series with support from sponsors Priority Aviation, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Fischer Body Shop, the Saich Family, Waco Metal, Dissolve Alloy and all other Jason Johnson Racing sponsors.

Meyers has 57 career Outlaws wins and series championships in 2010 and 2011.

Darrah will fill-in for Pittman, who sustained a broken collarbone in the same crash at Placerville, this weekend at Calistoga.

"It's one of the tough things about our sport," Darrah said. "We wish Daryn well as he goes into surgery today. To be able to fill-in for him is an honor. I'm happy to be out here to keep the seat warm for him while he gets better."

Darrah, a former full-time Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb driver, is the 2011 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year recipient and a seven time series winner. He is running for his family-owned team in the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions this season.

Tickets for both nights of the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown are still available and can be purchased at the Calistoga Speedway box office. Single day reserved tickets are $50 and single day general admission tickets are $45. General admission tickets for children 12 and under are $10. Two day ticket packages are also available.

Donny Schatz Scores His Fourth Win of the Season at Placerville Speedway

PLACERVILLE, Calif. - April 8, 2015 - Donny Schatz battled past Kyle Hirst and forward from a fifth place starting position at Brad Sweet's Placerville Short Track Outlaw Showdown presented by Riebes Auto Parts Wednesday night to score his fourth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Schatz's win came as the series returned to the track for the first time since 1992.

"The locals are tough here on their own turf, especially at places we've never been," Schatz said of Hirst and his fellow California natives. "We came out, started fifth and bided our time. My Bad Boy Buggies team always make the right decisions and gave me a car that got better and better as the night went on and those other guys faded a bit."

Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team are just the third repeat winners of the 2015 season.

A crash dominated the middle portion of the feature and brought out a prolonged red flag. The lap 21, chain-reaction incident caught up several drivers including Jason Johnson, Daryn Pittman and Kraig Kinser.

Johnson was taken to an area hospital following the crash. According to Johnson's wife Bobbi, the rookie of the year contender is alert and talking to doctors. Doctors are still evaluating Johnson's injuries and will know more information in the coming days.

Pittman climbed from his car under his own power but was taken to an area hospital for further evaluation.

Kinser was OK and able to finish the feature.

A spectator was also transported to an area hospital for further evaluation following a separate incident the lap before.

Jason Sides and Andy Forsberg initially held the front row for the night's 35-lap feature. When it came time to take the track for the feature however Forsberg was late to staging and was penalized and moved back to the next row. That shifted Kyle Hirst's HAM Construction car to the front row with Sides.

When the green flag flew, Hirst battled past Sides before the two reached the back straight, with a surging Forsberg taking over the second position. For the next five laps, Hirst and Forsberg battled for the lead. A red flag flew on lap five after Tanner Thorson flipped in the middle of turns one and two. Thorson was OK.

Another caution flew on lap eight, with the front of the field largely remaining static. By lap 15, Hirst began catching the back of the field. As Hirst looked for a way around the lapped car of Justyn Cox, Forsberg saw an opportunity. Through the next several laps, Forsberg searched high and low looking for a line around Hirst, with Cox as the pick.

Even after Hirst cleared Cox, the battle between he and Forsberg continued with the two even making contact at one point. Through it all though, Hirst maintained the lead.

Schatz also used the lapped traffic to his advantage, battling past Sides on lap 19 coming out of turn four for the fourth position as the two worked their way through.

Following the open red flag on lap 21, Schatz battled past Forsberg to take over the second position. He then set his sights on Hirst for the lead. Hirst bobbled coming off turn two on lap 27, which gave Schatz an opening. He passed Hirst as the two drivers came off of turn four to complete lap 28.

A red flag and two cautions came late in the race. Ultimately, the final caution setup a green-white-checkered finish. On the final restart, Forsberg fell off and gave up the third position to Sides' East Coast Logistics car. Hirst maintained his second place perch and was unable to catch Schatz. Forsberg ultimately finished the night in seventh.

It was the third win for Schatz during the Outlaws' California swing.

"I haven't typically been very good in California but when you're not good at something you have to work on it and that's what we're doing right now. On the California tour, that's three more than we've had the last couple of years. All we do is build on that, build on the weak spots and see what happens."

It was the first podium finish of the season for both Hirst and Sides.

"We'll take it. Running second to Donny is a privilege so congratulations to him and his team", said Hirst, who finished second. "Had it for a while. I thought Andy (Forsberg) was coming - the next thing I saw was the 15 go by me on the front straightaway."

"Kyle and Forsberg were having really good races," Sides said. "You can never count out Donny. He just sneaks by on the outside of everybody. Just happened to be up here."

At A Glance: Kasey Kahne Racing Looks to Repeat Calistoga Magic

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series takes on the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown on April 11 and 12; takes on Placerville tonight

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - April 7, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and the King of the West Series return to Calistoga (Calif.) Speedway this weekend for the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown with one team looking to repeat its magic from 2014.

Last year, Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb took home wins on both nights at the semi-banked, half-mile oval. Brad Sweet held off Brian Brown on the first night while Daryn Pittman kept his KKR teammates at bay to win on night two. To cap off an already stellar weekend, the team swept all three podium positions on the second night.

Pittman comes into the Wine Country Outlaw Showdown this season after winning the 2015 sprint week championship at DIRTcar Nationals and scoring his second victory a week and a half ago at Antioch (Calif.)

At A Glance: Placerville Speedway and Paul McMahans First Win

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to Placerville Speedway after a 23 year absence

 

 

CONCORD, N.C. - April 4, 2015 - It has been more than 20 years since the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series last took on the high-banked, quarter-mile Placerville (Calif.) Speedway. The opportunity to bring the series back after all that time came at the hands of one Outlaws competitor, Brad Sweet, but it is another who brings a very special connection to the track.

In 1987, Paul McMahan, an Elk Grove, California native, stepped into a 410 sprint car for the first time in his career. Not long after that first start, McMahan got his first 410 win. That win, of course, came at Placerville.

"It doesn't seem like it was that long ago but obviously it was," McMahan said. "Going back to Placerville is pretty cool. That's where I cut my teeth. It's always cool to go back to a place like that. I'm looking forward to it."

Despite his experience at the track, McMahan said he knows it has changed a lot over the years. His last race at Placerville came in 1998.

"When I went there in 1987 to when I went there in 1998, it changed two or three times," he said. "Talking to several friends of mine who race there every week, the track has changed there again. I went there two years ago to look through the fence and it doesn't look anything like it was almost 20 years ago. The only thing it's still got there is the big hill on the back straightaway. That's about the only thing that stays consistent."

McMahan and his fellow World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competitors take on Brad Sweet's Placerville Short Track Outlaw Showdown presented by Riebes Auto Parts on Wednesday, April 8.

Reserved tickets can be purchased by visiting http://www.WorldofOutlaws.com/Tickets, or by calling the ticket hotline at (877) 395-8606. Pit passes sold on the day of the event will provide first-come first-served general admission grandstand seating. There are no age restrictions in the pits.

Sweet Shifts Gears, Takes on Promoter Title at Placerville

Brad Sweet�s Placerville Short Track Outlaw Showdown presented by Riebes Auto Parts returns the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series to Placerville Speedway for the first time since 1992

CONCORD, N.C. - March 31, 2015 - The past year has been full of learning experiences for Kasey Kahne Racing driver Brad Sweet. The 29-year-old, Grass Valley, Calif.-native took on his first full World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season in 2014. In the process of figuring out how to be successful on the grueling Outlaws tour, he took home five wins and the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year award.

Now, Sweet is diving into a new role - that of promoter.

"I didn't ever sit around and think, I want to be a sprint car promoter because I'm always on the other side," Sweet said. "I'm a driver. That's where my focus is at."

The opportunity to return the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series to his home track, Placerville (Calif.) Speedway, after more than 20 years was just too good to pass up.

"I just thought to myself that I would love to go see the Outlaws at Placerville," Sweet said. "It hasn't been done in 23 years. If I would want to do it so bad, I'd imagine the fans want to see it too."

When the Outlaws return to the quarter-mile bull ring in the foothills of Northern California for Brad Sweet's Placerville Short Track Outlaw Showdown on Wednesday, April 8, it will be the first time since 1992. In the four appearances the series made at the track between 1985 and 1992, Jac Haudenschild and Sammy Swindell each scored two wins.

The support from fans and the community has been strong. Ticket sales have been brisk and Sweet has added regional NAPA Auto Parts distributer Riebes Auto Parts as a partner for the event.

"We're really excited to add Riebes Auto Parts as the presenting sponsor of the event," Sweet said. "They're a local company - they have a couple of stores right there in Placerville. Bart Riebe, the owner of Riebes, is an avid sprint car fan and attends sprint car races, so it was easy to build a relationship."

The Placerville Riebes Auto Parts store (2885 Ray Lawyer Drive) will host a luncheon open to the public from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the day of the race, featuring an autograph session and giveaways with Sweet and other series drivers.

Ruhs Bros Motorsport has also signed on as an event sponsor.

Great seats for Brad Sweet's Placerville Outlaw Short Track Showdown presented by Riebes Auto Parts on April 8 are still available. Reserved and general admission tickets are available for $45. Every ticket receives a fan pit pass. There are no age restrictions for pit access during the event. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.WorldofOutlaws.com/Tickets or by calling 1-877-395-8606. General admission tickets will be available on the day of the event.

While Sweet said his main focus remains winning with his Kasey Kahne Racing with Mike Curb team and not on expanding his promoter role, he is hopeful the event will be a success this year and can continue in seasons to come.

"If this Placerville event is something that we can build up and keep going for a couple of years then that would be pretty fun. We're looking forward to a great event and great show for the fans." The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is brought to fans across the country by many important sponsors and partners, including: Lincoln Welders (Official Welder), Hoosier Racing Tire (Official Tire), VP Racing Fuels (Official Racing Fuel); in addition to contingency sponsors, including: Bruce High Performance Transporters, Cometic Gasket, Comp Cams, Edelbrock, JE Pistons, KSE Racing Products, Mobil 1, MSD, Sweet Manufacturing, and Superflow Dynos; along with manufacturer sponsors, including: ButlerBuilt, Intercomp, J&J Auto Racing, Jake's Carts, Racing Electronics, S&S Volvo and TNT Rescue.

 

 

 

 

Daryn Pittman Holds off Paul McMahan to Score Victory at Antioch

This was the second World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series win of the year for Pittman

 

 

ANTIOCH, Calif. - March 29, 2015 - Through Sunday night's 30 lap World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature at Antioch Speedway, Paul McMahan tried everything he could think of to get around leader Daryn Pittman. McMahan tried the high line and the low line; he got side by side with Pittman off of turn four and even briefly worked his way past Pittman. In the end though, Pittman held off McMahan to score his second series victory of the season.

"This is for my crew - this Great Clips team is just incredible," Pittman said. "You know how good of a race team you're part of when… you go to race tracks that aren't part of my forte and places I don't normally excel at and they continuously give me cars that are capable of going out and winning with."

Pittman, who started on McMahan's outside, jumped to the lead on the start. As Pittman worked to build up a lead in the opening laps, McMahan chased him down, challenging him on every inch of the track. While the two drivers battled for the lead, Kerry Madsen pushed his American Racing Custom Wheels car up to third and then into contention with the two drivers.

Madsen found an opening on lap six, clearing McMahan's CJB Motorsports car in turns three and four to take over the second spot. The move was short lived however as McMahan battled past Madsen one lap later. A determined McMahan then set his sights back on Pittman, whom he quickly caught.

"I could hear him," Pittman said of McMahan. "He wanted it pretty bad. You could hear he was running the car quite a bit harder than I was."

Through laps nine, 10 and 11, McMahan tried to find a way around.

The only caution of the night flew on lap 11, as Justyn Cox slowed and then came to a stop on the backstretch.

When the field returned to green, the battle between Pittman, McMahan and Madsen continued. On lap 15 it looked like McMahan may have finally found his path to the lead. He got a run on Pittman off of turn two and drag raced the No. 9 car down the backstretch. As the two dove into turn three, McMahan cleared the leader. Pittman slid his No. 9 car through the turn though and took back the lead.

Madsen got in on the act four laps later as Pittman and McMahan caught lapped traffic. Madsen tried to slide the two cars through turns three and four, but he was not able to hold on to any gained positions.

As Pittman fought his way through lapped traffic in the final laps, McMahan continued his quest for a way around Pittman. But ultimately, he came just short.

"I think we were better than Daryn - it's just that the place is so narrow that I would get a big run on him and there's just nowhere to go anymore," said McMahan, who closed out the night in second. "He beat me on the start and got out front and that was the key."

"The track was in great shape. It was real wet and made for an exciting race. I just needed a few more lapped cars. My car got real tight there at the end and I couldn't run the line I was with everybody on the bottom throwing that wet stuff up around the top. When it comes down to the start, I lost it.

Pittman agreed with McMahan that the initial start was the key for success in the night's event. As he wheeled his way around the track, the lapped traffic that McMahan sought was making Pittman nervous.

"Everybody was so fast and I just didn't want to make a mistake, and I could hear him breathing down my neck but I didn't know how hard to push," Pittman said. "So I was just trying to make a clean race. I haven't been able to put together 30 good lap many times this year so luckily we were good enough.

This was Pittman's second win of the season. He is just the third different driver - joining Rico Abreu and Donny Schatz - to score more than one win so far this season.

After battles throughout the night, Madsen stood on the front stretch in third at Antioch.

"It was a fantastic weekend for us. We led some laps and we actually got into second tonight but Paul drove back around me," Madsen said. "And he was driving pretty aggressively there and I was quite happy to finish in third place tonight."

Madsen closed out the Silver Dollar Speedway and Antioch Speedway weekend with two straight podium finishes.

Donny Schatz Wins Hard Fought Mini Gold Cup Victory

It was the second win in a week for Schatz as he took over the points lead

 

 

CHICO, Calif. - March 28, 2015 - Donny Schatz scored his third win of the season Saturday night at Silver Dollar Speedway's Mini Gold Cup, but his competition did not make it easy for him.

Schatz led the field through the opening laps in his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies car and held off Daryn Pittman as a series of cautions flew. The first caution came on lap four, followed by one on lap nine and then on the subsequent restart attempt. After Rico Abreu got off track and brought out the caution on lap 11, Kerry Madsen was able to battle past Pittman to take over the second position. Terry McCarl brought out a pivotal caution on lap 18 as he spun into the infield off of turn two.

As the field returned to green, Kerry Madsen got his opportunity to take on Schatz.

"I figured I'd go to the top because there was rubber, but there wasn't really rubber at that spot and I thought I've actually got a really good shot here and got a really good restart," Madsen said.

"I know my crew was probably calling me every name in the book on that restart but it started to lay a little rubber there and you're damned if you do and damned if you don't," Schatz said. "And I figured if I could get a run off the top. Kerry just got a really good start."

When the field came around to take lap 18, Madsen led Scha
