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

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

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

It was Schatz's first ever win at Lakeside.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

At A Glance: How Joey Saldana Prepares for This Week’s Two New Tracks

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This update goes into effect immediately.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Great seats remain for all three events this week.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For Darrah, the restart captured a familiar frustration.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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.
