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.

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.

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.

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.

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/.

Pre-Race Festivities for Drivers, Crews, and Fans Plus PA Posse Bonus Planned

New Egypt, NJ-- The World of Outlaw Sprints will invade New Egypt Speedway for their only New Jersey appearance of the 2015 season on Tuesday, May 19th for the Jersey Outlaw Classic.

Vahlco Wheels has signed on to host a pre-race party for all the drivers and crew members before the start of the event in the pit area. When the pit gates open at 3 pm drivers and their crews will enjoy food and drinks under the Vahlco Wheels tent.

During the entire northeastern swing of the Outlaws schedule they compete against the best of the best in Central Pennsylvania’s PA Posse. The Speedway wants to continue that battle for their only appearance in New Jersey and to do so is offering a $250 cash bonus to the first PA Posse member across the finish line. If a PA Posse member can score the victory against the Outlaws the bonus will be doubled to $500. The only time a PA Posse member has beat the Outlaws at New Egypt Speedway was PJ Chesson back in 2002.

The Speedway also has a lot of great giveaways and contests for the fans during the night. First off will be the “Parking Lot Party” tailgating competition. Fans are invited to tailgate throughout the day and decorate their area celebrating their favorite driver, the Outlaws, or any other organized theme.

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."

Roth Motorsports To Hit Road With Kyle Hirst

Roth Motorsports is excited to announce they have named Kyle Hirst the driver of their traveling team effective immediately, as Hirst joins the team in Mesquite, TX for the Texas Outlaw Nationals at the Devil’s Bowl Raceway this Friday and Saturday night.

“David Gravel gave us a great effort for the last year, but we felt it was time to go in a different direction for our team,” Dennis Roth said. “We are excited to give Kyle Hirst to opportunity to hit the road and represent our team on the track. As I said at the start of the season, we were very pleased with what Kyle did for us in California over the last few seasons, and hope he can do well for us in the National spotlight.”

After piloting the Roth Motorpsorts  No. 83jr on Friday night in Hanford, CA with the World of Outlaws, Kyle Hirst will now pack his bags and meet up with the National team as they continue their season in Texas, and he takes over the driving duties of the Roth Motorsports No. 83 machine.

Hirst, who is no stranger to Roth Motorsports, gets the nod after picking up two consecutive KWS Championships outright, as well as helping the team earn the owner’s title in 2012 as he took the reigns from Tim Kaeding.

“I am so thankful that Dennis and Teresa Roth are giving me the opportunity of a lifetime, to hit the road and race,” Kyle Hirst said. “We had a great run together the last few seasons and I am hoping we can keep it going on this next adventure. I hate to leave the Main Motorsports team with our season in California just getting started, but they have been very supportive over the last few days.”

“There are some huge races across the country I have always wanted to compete in, and it is awesome to have the chance,” Hirst added. “Roth Motorsports is a great organization, and I am very excited to get back to work with them.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, 3H Cattle,  Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2015.

Destiny Motorsports Proudly Announces David Gravel Will Take Over Driving Duties on World of Outlaws Tour

With the California swing in the books, Destiny Motorsports is excited to announce that David Gravel has been hired to take over the driving duties on the World of Outlaws tour starting this weekend in Texas.

“It just did not work out with Craig Dollansky and us, and we both felt it was best to part ways,” Destiny Motorsports owner, Rick Rogers said. “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome a young talent like David Gravel to our team, as he takes over the driving duties for us.”

Watertown, CT driver, David Gravel, comes to Destiny Motorsports after a very strong 2014 season with the World of Outlaws, one that saw him win five World of Outlaws races, including the National Open.

“First and foremost, I am thankful for the opportunity that Roth Motorsports gave me for the last season,” Gravel said. “With that being said, I am very excited to team up with Rick and Barb Rogers, and drive the Destiny Motorsports machine.”

Though the start of the 2015 season has not been quite what David Gravel had in mind, he looks forward to jumping into the Destiny Motorsports machine, and continuing his World of Outlaws season, where he currently sits ninth in the standings with nine Top-10 finishes and two Top-Five finishes.

“This team wants to win a World of Outlaws race very bad, and we are going to work very hard and hopefully win a couple of them as the season goes on,” Gravel added.

Gravel and the Destiny Motorsports team will make their debut together when the World of Outlaws series takes to the Devil’s Bowl Speedway this Friday and Saturday night.

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."

WORLD OF OUTLAWS ALL-TIME WINNERS LIST AT PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY!

(Perris, CA, April 14, 2015)   With the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series headed to Perris Auto Speedway for the only time in 2015, it is time to check up on the all-time winners list at the track.  Since the first time the Outlaws rolled into town during The PAS inaugural season in 1996, the legendary sprint car series has made 15 visits to the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval.  Eight different World of Outlaws drivers have stood on the PAS victory podium.

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.

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.
