Donny Schatz Continues to Bolster His Resume at Terre Haute Action Track

Schatz gets his 22nd win of the season and the second in a row at a track he had never won at before

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Sept. 17, 2014 - Donny Schatz's dominant performance Wednesday night at the Terre Haute Action Track gave him his 22nd World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season and added to an impressive resume that has only been bolstered this season.

His first ever win at Terre Haute was the second first win in as many nights for the five-time champion after he parked it in victory lane at Kokomo Speedway on Tuesday night.

"It's been a great week for me," Schatz said. "For two tracks to get off the bucket list that I've never won at feels really good."

Schatz led Joey Saldana to the green flag in the feature, but it was Saldana who jumped to the lead as the field dove into the first turn. A caution flag flew before one lap could be completed and the field reset. Saldana again got the lead into turn one on the restart, but as the two cars battled onto the backstretch, it was Schatz who took over the lead.

"On the first start I got the lead but I saw Donny down there on the bottom and he got a good run," Saldana said. "I was like, maybe I need to get to the bottom. Obviously he snookered me there."

As the 25-lap feature wore on, two more cautions came out. Each time, Schatz easily retained the lead in his STP / Armor All car, then went on to build sizable leads.

Schatz, who struggled in the week before as the Outlaws concluded its West Coast swing and returned to the Midwest, congratulated his Tony Stewart Racing team in victory lane.

"It's an honor to drive this racecar," Schatz said. "It's an unbelievable machine. Last week I thought it was wore out, I thought it was time for a new one but they went hard to work at the shop and found a few things that maybe we were missing and got it back where it was. Hats off to them - they do a great job. When they're on their game there's nothing better. The way this car drove last night and the way it drove tonight - it's pretty unbelievable to have something that drives that good. It's just awesome."

As the Outlaws move into the final stretch of the season, Schatz's lead in the championship standings continues to grow over second place Daryn Pittman to 236 points. Paul McMahan is third in the standings, 347 points out of the lead.

Saldana said Schatz is raising the bar for all of his competitors this season. He said beating Schatz requires a nearly flawless night - tonight was no exception.

"He definitely knows how to capitalize on (mistakes)," Saldana said. "And there on the restart I just didn't know if I could get the bottom to get beside him. Getting beside somebody and passing them is something different, especially when you've got a car as fast as his."

Saldana, who was the last Outlaw to win at the track when the series was there in 2006, said he could not help but think about his history and the history of his team owner Dan Motter at Terre Haute.

"The last time I was here, I won, and the last time he was here, he won," Saldana said. "So he's probably disappointed - a second's not good enough. But the Motter car always ran really good here. They won with Kenny Jacobs and Stevie Smith so it would have been nice… putting the 71M into victory lane but we'll come back next year and try to do it again."

Luck was on third place finisher Brian Brown's side throughout the night.

On lap 14, Cody Darrah who was running fourth slowed and brought out the caution. Under the same caution, David Gravel, then in third, discovered a tire going down. With those two out of position, Brown moved from fifth into the third spot and Kerry Madsen into the fourth.

Then, as the driver brought his FVP / Casey's General Store car around to the checkered flag a right front steering arm broke.

"The last couple of laps there it just seemed to be a little more ducky and darty than normal," Brown said. "I just couldn't figure out what I was doing or what was going on. The track was rough in spots so that kind of threw you around a bit. I just thought I wasn't driving the car correctly. Then we came off four to take the checkered and it just kind of went right. I thought, man that was weird and I went to turn in one and two there after the checkered and it just didn't turn. We got very, very lucky."

"Great to be back at Terre Haute. Great crowd. This is what we need toward the end of the season - a couple of good runs with the Outlaws."

Daryn Pittman was the KSE Hard Charger of the night after advancing eight positions to finish in fourth.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series moves east for the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway on Sept. 19 before taking on the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway on Sept. 20.

Donny Schatz Scores His 21st Win of the Season at Kokomo Speedway

Gets around David Gravel and holds off a late charging Shane Stewart

KOKOMO, Ind. - Sept. 16, 2014 - Donny Schatz bounced back from six races off the podium to score his 21st World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season at Kokomo Speedway on Tuesday night.

The five-time champion and current points leader started fourth in the feature and after fighting his way forward on the start, battled past then leader David Gravel and managed to hold off a series of challengers through eight cautions and restarts.

He also had a little luck on his side, avoiding Brad Sweet who spun right in front of Schatz as the checkered flag flew.

"I tried to keep going there," said Schatz of seeing the spin. "I didn't know if he was going to come across. It happened. I'm glad it happened coming to the checkered."

Schatz, who just two weeks earlier had an incredible six race win streak and 18 straight podium finishes, struggled as the series made its way down the West Coast and then returned to the Midwest. He credited his STP / Armor All team for going back to work to improve.

"The STP guys did a great job tonight," Schatz said. "They finally got back to the shop, slept in their own beds for a few nights and really showed us tonight that they got this thing tuned up. Our car is really rotating well."

Schatz said the win means a lot for his Indianapolis-based Tony Stewart Racing team.

"Well, this is about as close to home for the guys in the shop as it's going to get," Schatz said. "It's great. We've got everyone from the shop here. This is like a hometown win for this race team. It's always great to have that."

"Everything was great tonight. I'm just happy to be standing here."

Schatz extended his lead for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship to 222 over second place Daryn Pittman. Paul McMahan remains in third, 313 points out of the lead.

Kerry Madsen led the field to the green flag with David Gravel at his side. As the green flag fell, Schatz moved into third and battled Gravel for the second spot. Schatz found his way around but a caution quickly came out and reset the field. When the race returned to green, Gravel fought past Madsen and took over the lead as Schatz moved into the second.

Gravel kept the lead for just three laps before Schatz got around.

Cautions continued to plague the feature for the first half coming out a total of eight times throughout the night. Jac Haudenschild brought out a red flag after he got hung up on the wall in turn two. An open red was called, allowing teams to make minor adjustments to their cars.

As the feature wore on, Dale Blaney, who started in third, moved up and down within the top-five as Brad Sweet went on a charge, moving into the top-three on lap 17. As he battled Gravel for second, Sweet jumped the cushion and spun his car in turn three bringing out another caution and relegating him to the back of the field.

With another restart came another opportunity and Blaney fought past Gravel on the restart and took over the second spot. Meanwhile, Shane Stewart was battling forward, taking over the second spot from Gravel on lap 31.

With seven to go, Schatz caught the back of the field and began to make moves around lapped traffic, including his teammate, 20-time champion Steve Kinser.

"I got by Kraig (Kinser) and I was working on Steve and Kraig went back by both of us," Schatz said. "Kraig got good on the bottom - I was trying to get by both of them at the same time. I didn't know if someone was coming."

Someone was coming - Dale Blaney.

"I had one shot at it and I kind of dove to the bottom and didn't get a very good run off," Blaney said.

With Stewart close behind, the move for the lead ultimately cost Blaney the second spot. Stewart, who was charging hard as the laps wound down closed the gap on Schatz but ultimately ran out of time.

"Yeah, the race clicked off really quick," Stewart said. "I was really surprised to see the white flag."

Stewart, who has two full points wins with the Outlaws this season, credited his GoPro team with heading back to North Carolina following their West Coast run and getting a new car ready for his run with the Outlaws this week.

"They've been working really, really hard for me and it's greatly appreciated," Stewart said. "I just had a good car. Steve made a few adjustments on that open red and I think it helped me. It's one thing to catch Donny, but it's another thing to pass him."

Blaney, who came home third on Tuesday night, said he found a good groove on the bottom that helped him get the run on Schatz and then ultimately hold on to a podium finish.

"To come here and run an Outlaw race, and come here and run third and be competitive makes us feel good," said Blaney who has one Outlaws win this season at Attica. "We'll come back Friday night at Eldora and hopefully get after them again."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Wednesday as it takes on the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track. After that, the series moves east for the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway on Sept. 19 and the Commonwealth Clash at Lernerville Speedway on Sept. 20.

Deer Creek Win Makes It Five This Season for Paul McMahan

This was McMahan’s first career World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win at Deer Creek Speedway

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. - Sept. 13, 2014 - Cold temperatures might have hung over Deer Creek Speedway Saturday night for the ASGROW/DEKALB Clash at the Creek, but the action on track was hot, as Paul McMahan battled through lapped track and held off David Gravel to score his fifth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

"I'll tell you what, (my crew chief) Barry Jackson and everyone else with the CJB Motorsports car gave me a great car tonight. I was a little concerned starting on the bottom there on the original start and was able to slide up in front of David there," McMahan said.

McMahan started on the pole with Gravel in second. As the green flag fell on the feature, the two battled for the lead. As they dove into turn one, Gravel and McMahan made contact.

"He had a big run there and got into the back of me a little bit but it's just hard racing that we're doing out here," McMahan said.

The two drivers drag raced down the backstretch with the advantage to McMahan as they entered three and four. Gravel dove low as McMahan took the middle and when they hit the front stretch, Gravel did a wheelie and McMahan led the first lap.

Just as the field completed the first lap a wreck involving Davey Heskin left the driver on his roof on the exit of turn two. He was Ok.

When they returned to green, McMahan chose the outside for the restart, something he would do again following cautions on laps 19 and 32.

"I tried to use the top as my advantage," McMahan said. "I tried to roll down the hill a little bit and I can control the restarts there being the leader. David was trying to run me up the race track and keep me in the dirty stuff so I just kind of let him go out in front of me and as soon as he got in front of me I took off and left him sitting there."

McMahan hit lapped traffic on lap eight and spent much of night battling through it. "You never know how far out in front you are. I was having a hard time getting through lapped cars because it was tough and the track got real slick. I was good through the middle but I would blow the tires off on exit."

Gravel, who set a new track record of 11.416 in scoring his 10th quick time of the season earlier in the night, worked on different lines throughout the feature. As the field fought its way through lapped traffic in the closing laps, Gravel closed the gap on McMahan.

"It was really good on the bottom of three and four," Gravel said. "The car stayed pretty consistent the whole time. I was good on the bottom or the top - it didn't really matter where I ran."

Then, on lap 32, the right rear tire of Joey Saldana, who was running third at the time and threatening Gravel's second place perch, shredded as the driver hit the front stretch. A subsequent caution eliminated McMahan's lead and gave Gravel one last shot at it as Kerry Madsen, now in third, and Craig Dollansky in fourth looked to make moves.

McMahan held the lead on the single file restart and cruised to his fifth win of the season with Gravel in second, Madsen in third and Dollansky in fourth. He maintains his third place position in the championship points standings, 293 out of the lead.

In victory lane, McMahan thanked his CJB Motorsports team owners Chad and Jenn Clemens for their support of him and the team.

Gravel, who ultimately came home second, almost did not make it in his Roth Motorsports car.

"After that last caution the car acted really funny," Gravel said. "I wish the green flag would have kept going there but to finish in second with a hole in the right rear, I'm glad it wasn't 40 laps."

Madsen, who battled forward from a 10th place starting position in his American Racing Custom Wheels car, held off Dollansky in the closing laps to finish on the podium.

"The track was extremely tricky though because you really wanted to be aggressive on the entry of the corner but every time you did, you would find a hole you couldn't see," Madsen said. "The track was really exciting. There were a couple of grooves around, like the middle of four. There was plenty of stuff to hit your marks and we had a pretty exciting race… Couldn't be more happy with the team."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads to Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway on Sept. 16 to make up a rainout from earlier this season. The series then heads to the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track on Sept. 17.

Kraig Kinser a Winner at Clay County Fair Speedway

Becomes the 22nd different winner of the season and scores the 16th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of his career

SPENCER, Iowa - Sept. 12, 2014 - With the lights of the Ferris wheel shining in the distance and the sounds of midway games just beyond the grand stand, Kraig Kinser scored his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season at the Clay County Fair Speedway's Arnold Motor Supply Shootout on Friday night.

Kinser got the break he needed as the Outlaws turned lap 13 at the 3/8 mile track. Brad Sweet, who had led every lap up to that point, was battling a loose racecar and it nearly got the best of him coming off of turn four. Sweet got sideways and dove to the bottom of the track as he fought to save his car.

"I saw him crossed up," Kinser said. "I was trying to check up, check up because I saw him come across the track. I saw him loose there - I kind of thought he was going to come up and get us."

Sweet recovered but not before slipping back to fourth place. In the meantime, Kinser, Kerry Madsen and Joey Saldana all got around him.

"I know Brad's probably feeling pretty bad, but I'll take it any way I can get it," Kinser said in victory lane.

After struggling through the early and mid-portion of the 2014 season, Kinser said he was happy to score the win for his Steve Kinser Racing, Mesilla Valley Transportation team.

"We've been good since right before Knoxville," Kinser said. "We've been pretty quick, just unfortunate west coast swing - a victim of circumstances a little bit. It felt good after Knoxville to have a top-ten and keep the momentum rolling. We just struggled in the beginning of the year and through the middle part it got pretty tough there for a while. To hit one this late in the year, I'll take it."

Kinser's win makes him the 22nd different winner of the 2014 season. It is also his 16th career World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win.

Sweet took the green flag of the A main on the pole with Kinser to his outside. As the Outlaws completed lap one, Kinser slipped back to third after Madsen got around him right away. Madsen and Kinser battled through the first ten laps. As the two cars hit lapped traffic, Kinser found his way around Madsen.

"I got by Kraig and kind of sailed in behind Brad to deal with Brad later and then Kraig drove back around me in one and two," Madsen said. "All the while I thought I was going to be able to battle back. I just couldn't get through the lapped traffic and Kraig did a great job getting around Steve and building a nice, comfortable gap."

With Sweet's slide back, Madsen looked for an opportunity to get around Kinser in his American Racing Custom Wheels car and take over the lead. Behind him though, Saldana inched closer.

"In the last five laps we were just racing there," Madsen said. "Joey actually showed his nose to me off of two so I thought it is what it is and if the opportunity presents itself."

At one point, as Madsen and Saldana battled through the closing laps of the feature, which was caution free, Saldana got around, briefly taking over the second spot. The move was short lived.

As Saldana stood in victory lane following his third place finish in the 30-lap feature, a green puddle of coolant formed underneath his Motter Equipment car.

"We've actually had some bad luck here lately. Some flat tires and a fuel line coming loose. Tonight something went through the radiator," Saldana said. "I'm just happy we finished and finished on the podium. That's a good solid run for us. It was good for us all tonight. Hopefully we can continue this tomorrow and on to the rest of the season."

In the race for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship, Donny Schatz extended his lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 206 points. Paul McMahan remains in third, 312 points out of the lead.

Schatz was the recipient of the KSE Hard Charger Award Friday night after advancing five positions to finish in sixth. It was his 13th Hard Charger Award of the season, the most of any driver.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next returns to action on Saturday night at the ASGROW/DEKALB Clash at the Creek at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. The Outlaws then head east to take on Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway on Sept. 16 and the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track on Sept. 17.

New Generation of Outlaws Taking Aim at Historic Terre Haute

Top four in points seeking their first victory at Indiana speedplant

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Sept. 12, 2014 - None of the top four drivers in the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship standings have earned a victory at the Terre Haute Action Track, but there's no doubt Donny Schatz, Daryn Pittman, Paul McMahan and Kerry Madsen will be trying to add their name to the track's record book on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

On top of that, Indiana native Steve Kinser, who won four times in a row at the Indiana half-mile oval in 1993 and '94, will be taking aim at one more Terre Haute victory in his final season on the road with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars.

Joey Saldana is the last Outlaw winner at Terre Haute, taking the victory on June 4, 2006, and as an Indiana native he can't wait for the series to finally roll its way there.

"I can't wait," said Saldana, who has five victories and a series-high 22 quick-times this season. "I remember going there quite a bit when I was little because you had to unload in the infield. Growing up, I lived in the Terre Haute infield. It's a great facility. We haven't been there in a long time so hopefully it's a sellout. It's time to go back. The last time we were there was 2006, I can't wait to go back."

The event at Terre Haute caps off a rare late-season Indiana mid-week doubleheader with the series competing the night before at quarter-mile Kokomo Speedway. The Outlaws then exit Terre Haute for Eldora Speedway on Friday, Sept. 19, in Rossburg, Ohio.

DIRTcar UMP Modifieds will join the Outlaws on Sept. 17 at Terre Haute. For tickets and more information about the Terre Haute event, click www.WorldofOutlaws.com or call the ticket hotline at 877-395-8606.

Budweiser Salute to the King Outlaw Showdown Will Rock Rolling Wheels Raceway Park on Saturday, Oct. 11

King of Beers honors Steve Kinser's final run at 'The Fast Track'

ELBRIDGE, N.Y. - Sept. 11, 2014 -
In one month on Saturday, Oct. 11, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars will help Rolling Wheels Raceway Park close out its season with the Budweiser Salute to the King Outlaw Showdown.

Budweiser is the King of Beers and Steve Kinser is the King of the Outlaws so matching the two together on Oct. 11 at high-speed 5/8-mile oval is the perfect way to spend a Saturday night in the midst of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week taking place throughout Central New York. It will also mark Kinser's final appearance at Rolling Wheels as a touring racer with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars. Kinser, a 20-time series champion from Bloomington, Ind., has 12 Outlaw victories at Rolling Wheels, more than any other driver.

Off the track there is an exciting opportunity to gain access to the unique Bud Light Beer Garden VIP Experience. For $100 fans will get pit access, seating in the pit grandstands, FREE parking, an open bar, a buffet, closed circuit TV coverage and the opportunity to meet one of the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series stars.

"It's hard to say exactly what it is about Rolling Wheels," said Kinser, who last won at Rolling Wheels in 2012. "The biggest thing is that we've always had success there. It started really early and every time we show up it's continued. It's a big track where you can use the speed of these cars. The corners are tight enough that you have to hit them just right to maintain your speed and get all the way down to the other end. We have a couple of tracks that just fit my driving style perfectly. We've been able to win a lot of races here, and the goal is to get another one. It's a pretty good drive up there, but I can tell you the trip home after a win is always a good one."

Defending Rolling Wheels winner Donny Schatz has been the hottest sprint car driver on the planet this season. He's dominating the standings in a quest to earn his sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship during a season that has seen him win 20 races for the second year in a row, move into third-place all-time on the Outlaws' record list, and capture his eighth Knoxville Nationals crown. Schatz is a three-time Rolling Wheels winner who is aiming to continue building on his historic season.

In addition to the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars, the night will also feature the Win-and-You're-In DIRTcar Big-Block Modified event, where the winner secures the final starting position in the NAPA Super DIRT Week $50,000-to-win Syracuse 200 on Sunday, Oct. 12, at the New York State Fairgrounds' historic 1-mile oval in Syracuse.

Tickets for the event, as well as the Bud Light Beer Garden VIP Experience, can be purchased online by clicking www.WorldofOutlaws.com/tickets or by calling 877-395-8606.

For Logan Schuchart, a 2014 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender, 2014 has been a series of firsts with his Shark Racing team as the driver has made starts at tracks across the country that he had never raced on before. This includes the upcoming events at Clay County and Deer Creek. We asked Schuchart about his rookie season:

How do you prepare for tracks you've never been to?

"We just have some basic stuff that we do. We try to go look at the track to see if it's anywhere similar to anywhere we've run before. Then we write some notes down, that way we know for next year, or if it's somewhere we're going back to.

"That's all this year was - overcoming the learning curve and trying to get better for next year. We're learning, we're getting better, we're getting experience. And we're trying to be more prepared for next year with the racecars and our knowledge of race tracks."

You recently started running a new chassis, how has that helped your team?

" We've been better since we started running XXX Chassis. They're going to help us out, we're going to run their stuff next year, Jacob and I. It was right around when we put their stuff together that we seemed to be faster… We're running better, we want to help them out, make them look good and make ourselves look good too."

What have the challenges of running a full schedule been this season?

"Our biggest challenge has been to make it to the end of the year. The money thing - we thought we were in pretty decent shape at the end of the year with motors and then we had a couple of things happen that shouldn't have happened that were our fault. The truck breaking down a couple of times - we're still mad we missed one race at Pevely, Mo. To have fans come up and ask if we're doing the whole Outlaw thing and we've got to tell them that we missed one race, I hate that. I'll be happy that we make it to the end of the year and it looks like that's going to happen."

What does it mean to you to be making your first full season campaign with your family, including your grandfather Bobby Allen?

"It's an awesome experience to be able to do this with my grandpa and Jacob. I'm close with both of them. I've raced with Jacob my whole life. Obviously my Grandpa is the one who got me into racing. I raced at his go-kart track when I was little, all the way up to now. It's definitely been a lot fun."

Madsen Wins at Antioch in Closest Outlaws Finish Ever

He scores his sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season after holding off Kyle Hirst by .005 seconds

ANTIOCH, Calif. - Sept. 7, 2014 - Kerry Madsen scored a win for the record books Sunday night at Antioch Speedway as he held off Kyle Hirst by just .005 seconds, the smallest win margin in World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series history.

Madsen took over the lead on lap seven as the field returned to green following a caution. Madsen, who at the time was running in second behind reigning series champion Daryn Pittman, looked low as Pittman got caught up in the cushion and fell back.

Now leading, Madsen quickly built up a comfortable lead in his American Racing Custom Wheels car. By lap 11 he hit lapped traffic. As he worked his way through, Hirst crept closer.

As Madsen took the white flag, Hirst looked for an opportunity. He found it as the two entered the final turn. With Madsen bottled up by a lapped car, Hirst entered onto the front stretch side-by-side with the Australia native. The two drag raced down to the checkered flag and Madsen claimed the win by just a fraction of a second.

"It felt like I was doing it comfortably and managing traffic pretty well but I just got bottled up there and I guess he got a run," Madsen said. "I was pretty lucky to get away with that one."

Madsen said as the race wore on and he fought his way through the lapped traffic he was not concerned about what was going on behind him.

"I tried to keep the race pace at a comfortable pace so I wasn't getting bottled up," Madsen said. "The start was important but I think you had to be able to maneuver traffic to win the race."

Madsen said it was an exciting race from where he sat.

This was the sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season for Madsen and the first since he won the Ironman 55 just over a month ago. He currently sits fourth in the championship standings, 480 points out of the lead.

For his part, Hirst said he was disappointed to let the win get away from him by such a small margin.

"That would happen to me! I wish I was on the other end of that but that's alright," said Hirst, the KSE Hard Charger Award recipient for the night after advancing six positions in the A main. "I'll get one, one of these years."

Hirst came into the night with the momentum of his performances at the Gold Cup Race of Champions. In the previous two nights in Chico he finished fifth and fourth. Tonight, Hirst came as close as he could to the win without capturing it.

"Yeah, I thought I had him," Hirst said. "I wasn't sure - it was going to be close… My Roth Motorsports team gave me a great car. This thing was awesome." "

"God I wish I would have had that one."

Hirst's Roth Motorsports teammate David Gravel finished the night in third after starting in third. Gravel fell back on the start but he was able to make up ground on the same restart Madsen took over the lead.

"We freed up all night but I was still flying the front end," Gravel said. "We had a good car, just missing it a little bit on the exit. We wanted a top-three and we got one. Good thing for Kyle, he's had a great weekend. And congrats to Kerry, he did awesome too."

"That one restart there with everyone biking on two wheels was pretty crazy and we took advantage of it. I've got to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth and all my guys."

Donny Schatz's lead in the championship standings is currently at 196 points over second place Pittman. Paul McMahan remains firmly in third, 306 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next returns to the Upper Midwest for The Arnold Motor Supply Shootout at the Clay County Fairgrounds in Spencer, Iowa on Sept. 12 and the ASGROW/DEKALB Clash at the Creek at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. on Sept. 13.

CHICO, Calif. - Sept. 5, 2014
- Carson Macedo scored his first ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory at the Gold Cup Race of Champions Friday night, delivering an impressive performance that saw him battle past and then hold off the series' reigning champion.

"I'm just speechless," Macedo said after beating the 41 car field. He joins the ranks of non-Outlaw drivers like Greg Hodnett and Dale Blaney who have bested the Outlaws this season and taken home a win.

The young driver started on the outside pole at Silver Dollar Speedway next to Daryn Pittman. As Pittman led through the early laps, Macedo did what few others Friday night found success doing - racing the high side.

"I had to go up there on the start next to Daryn and I just hit it wrong," Macedo said. "But I could feel that it was good. I'm glad I did."

On a caution and subsequent restart on lap seven, Pittman gave Macedo the opportunity he needed. The Tommy Tarleton Racing driver got around the past champion coming out of turn two and led the field back to the start/finish line.

With just nine to go, another caution gave Pittman an opportunity to get around Mecado - and he did just that. Unfortunately for Pittman, a red flag brought on by a wreck involving Brad Sweet, Paul McMahan and Andy Gregg right after the green flag flew reset the field to the previous lap, forcing Pittman to give up the lead.

Macedo, a Fresno, Calif. native, did not make the same mistake twice. When the race restarted he held off a hard-charging Pittman - a feat Mecado repeated again following the final caution of the night on lap 25.

"I can't even say how happy I am," Macedo said. "This is really like my first real win. To do it here with the Outlaws is unheard of. I'm so happy, so happy. This is the stuff kids dream about."

With his win, Mecado became the 20th different driver to win a World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event this season. He also became the 10th different non-Outlaw driver to find himself in victory lane during 2014.

Pittman, who finished the night in second in his Great Clips car, said he was disappointed he was not able to pull out the win Friday night. He congratulated Mecado, noting he knew a little something about what it meant to notch a first win at the track.

"Congrats to him," Pittman said. "That first, that's pretty special. I got my first win here on a prelim night a long time ago, back in 2000, so this place is pretty special to me in that sense. So obviously this is a win that he'll never forget."

Pittman said, looking forward, his team will regroup and talk about how they can adjust to be a little better tomorrow.

"I was tight on the top and maybe a little free on the bottom," Pittman said. "I thought I had a pretty good balance as far as a car that could move around and run both. I really just wanted to get in traffic more. I really thought I was going to be able to maneuver pretty good in traffic and it just seemed like when we got there to it we got another yellow."

Mecado was not the only California driver to best the Outlaws and make it into the history books for the first time. Bobby McMahan, an Elk Grove, Calif. native, battled with 20-time champion Steve Kinser for the third position, ultimately finishing in that spot and taking home his first ever podium finish in a World of Outlaws feature.

"It's like a win to me," McMahan said. "With all the guys… this is great for us."

McMahan, who started the feature eighth in his American Tool & Manufacturing car, worked his way through the field, benefitting late from the red flag on lap 21 that sent several front running cars into the pits. He traded positions with Kinser, but ultimately came out on top as Kinser finished in fourth.

"He's the King for a reason," McMahan said. "He kind of showed me the middle there getting through one and two. I was rolling the top and I was rolling it pretty good. That's how I passed him. He got me there in the middle and I thought I can't let that happen again."

Donny Schatz's lead in the championship points standings slipped slightly to 197 over second place Daryn Pittman. Paul McMahan is in third 298 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. on Sept. 6 for the second night of racing action at the Gold Cup Race of Champions. The Outlaws then take on Antioch Speedway on Sept. 7 before returning to the Midwest.

At A Glance: Outlaws Invade California

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to California for the final events in the state during the 2014 season

CONCORD, N.C. - Sept. 5, 2014 - The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to the Golden State for racing action at Silver Dollar Speedway on Sept. 5 and 6 and Antioch Speedway on Sept. 7.

Rain canceled the Outlaws' last appearance at California's Silver Dollar Speedway in March, so the last time the Outlaws competed at the track was during 2013's Gold Cup Race of Champions. Joey Saldana and Jason Meyers took home wins during the event last season, while Paul McMahan won the Mini Gold Cup in 2013.

20-time champion Steve Kinser is the only current full-time Outlaw with a win at Antioch Speedway in four World of Outlaws appearances at the track. Kyle Larson won at the 3/8 mile oval last season after holding off Jonathan Allard.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next returns to the Midwest for The Arnold Motor Supply Shootout at Clay County Fairgrounds in Spencer, Iowa on Sept. 12 and Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. for the ASGROW/DEKALB Clash at the Creek on Sept. 13.

Pittman Scores Southern Oregon Win

Gets his 13th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season

MEDFORD, Ore. - Sept. 3, 2014 - Daryn Pittman faced stiff battles with Joey Saldana and Kraig Kinser on his way to a 13th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win at Wednesday night's Rogue Valley Showdown at Southern Oregon Speedway.

Pittman's toughest obstacle though just might have been the yellow flags that plagued much of the feature on the 1/3 mile oval. Though it was on the second caution of the night that Pittman took over the lead in his Great Clips car, he was forced to contend with five others and a red flag as the leader.

"I wasn't liking the cautions for sure," said Pittman, an Owasso, Okla. native. "You know, you're running it through your head that that's how you got the lead was on the outside on a restart so it could easily happen to you. I didn't really know what to do if I should block someone on the outside of me going into one or just concentrate on hitting the bottom and hope that they didn't get a run.

"So I just stuck with the bottom and luckily no one was able to get by us. You never know what to do with those and man that seemed like a lot of caution laps. I didn't even feel that great on the single files. I knew somebody could still get a shot at it."

Kraig Kinser led the field to the green as the first caution flew on lap one. As the field returned to green Kinser jumped out to a strong lead that evaporated with another caution on lap four. When the field again went back to green, Pittman got his shot, driving around Kinser and taking over the lead before the field could complete another lap.

"It was really tricky going into one," Pittman said. "It was really slick on the bottom, so I knew if I had a shot it was going to be on a restart. When (Kinser) lifted to hit the moisture in the bottom of one I could just maybe sail through the middle. I really didn't think I could get back in front of him before he picked up the moisture off of two. I just had a good car and it worked perfect. I knew getting out front and getting down to the bottom was going to be key."

Farther back a battle was underway for second, third and fourth as Joey Saldana, in his Motter Equipment car, fought Cody Darrah, and Donny Schatz tried to advance from a fifth place starting position. Five more caution flags flew that saw Darrah lose a right rear and helped Paul McMahan battle forward.

On the restart for that fifth caution, McMahan got together with Kraig Kinser. The contact left Kinser flipping down the front stretch. When the wreck was over, Shane Stewart's night was done and David Gravel's car was damaged.

"I was fortunate to be on the inside lane for a lot of the restarts and you know on that last restart, I'm trying to get through the bottom, Kraig's trying to get by me and we got together," said McMahan, who finished the night in third in his CJB Motorsports car. "It's unfortunate for them. I feel bad for Kraig. He's a great racer."

Two more yellows followed, including one with just two to go that led to a green-white-checkered to close out the feature. Pittman won, holding off Saldana, who finished second, and McMahan in third.

"Kale (Kahne), Kolten (Gouse) and (Mike) Carber, they always give me a great car," Pittman said. "This was just a great team effort and a good car that was a lot of fun to drive."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continue its drive south with two nights at the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. on Sept. 5 and 6. The Outlaws then take on Antioch Speedway on Sept. 7 before returning to the Midwest.

Grays Harbor Gives Schatz His 20th Win of the Season

Extends his World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win streak to six in a row

ELMA, Wash. - Sept. 1, 2014 -
After winning Monday night's Lucky Eagle Casino Outlaw Invasion at Grays Harbor Raceway, Donny Schatz has entered territory few other World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series drivers before him have ever been in.

With his 20th win this season now in the books, the Tony Stewart Racing driver is the first since Steve Kinser's 2002 and 2003 seasons to have consecutive 20-win seasons and his six race win streak moves Schatz closer to legendary seasons had by three-time champion Sammy Swindell and Kinser.

"Well, it feels great," Schatz said. "It's kind of overwhelming really. You come here every day wanting to win. The reality of it is most days you're not going to. It's been a great year. It's not over yet. We've got a lot of races left and we'll just keep working hard."

"There's no way you could ever dream of being in this position but I'm here. I'm living it - I'm loving it."

Kinser led the field to the green on the 3/10 mile oval after winning his heat and the dash. The 20-time champion built up a healthy lead as Schatz battled with Cody Darrah for the second position.

With lapped traffic in play, Schatz found his way around Darrah on lap nine and then he drove his STP / Armor All car around Kinser on the same lap as the two came out of turn four.

Darrah then set his sights on Kinser's Bad Boy Buggies car in the second position. After working on Kinser for several laps, Darrah took the second spot back over on lap 17. The move however was short lived as the caution flag flew on lap 22.

When the field returned to green, Kinser jumped past Darrah as Darrah slipped back giving up several positions.

"We entered one in fifth or sixth and I think I might have gotten one or two cars there and then in three and four I just gave it all I could give," said Darrah, driver of the Ollie's Bargain Outlet car. "Doing that I stuck my right rear and I realized the way I was driving before, trying to lift and moving my car around and trying to get lift - I kind of did that out of desperation but I learned a lot about how we were working on our car."

As the field completed lap 23, Schatz led Kinser in second and Darrah in third. With the laps winding down, Darrah slid Kinser, taking over the second spot just before the checkered flag flew.

Kinser, who finished third after leading the first nine laps of the race, said he was disappointed he did not bring home the win, but he was happy with a podium finish.

"It's better than what it has been," Kinser said. "I got a little loose but stayed in the hunt. A little better, we might have gone the right way."

Darrah said he felt like his Kasey Kahne Racing car had something for Schatz but he said he was up on his wheels and put himself in a bad position.

"It's nice to come out of here with a second place," Darrah said. "I really feel like we're working toward beating this 15 but he's in his own league right now."

Schatz again credited his team and crew chief Ricky Warner for all the work they do providing him with a racecar capable of winning night in and night out.

"It was fun. I had a great racecar," Schatz said. "These guys just keep making the right decisions and every time you get in it, it's definitely the most fun car to drive right now. Hats off to them, they're working their tails off and it shows."

Schatz now leads second place Daryn Pittman by 219 points in the race for the championship. Third place Paul McMahan is 282 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads south to Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore. on Tuesday and Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, Ore. on Wednesday before heading to California for a three race swing.

Schatz Scores Skagit Sweep of the Monster Energy Meltdown

Holds off Brad Sweet and Joey Saldana to get his fifth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win in a row and 19th of the season

ALGER, Wash. - Aug. 30, 2014 -
On the way to winning his fifth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series feature in a row, Donny Schatz has had easier nights than Saturday's Monster Energy Meltdown at Skagit Speedway. After first fighting his way past Joey Saldana, he had to battle through lapped traffic and then hold off a hard charging Brad Sweet.

In the end though the result was the same as it had been 18 other times this season - Donny Schatz stood in victory lane as the winner.

"I'm just very fortunate to be around great people from my race team to my family, car owner, everyone that's surrounding us, our marketing partners with STP and Armor All," Schatz said. It just fits all together. It's pretty amazing what these guys all do. They give me an awesome racecar every night and I get to do a lot of fun things and I got to do another fun one tonight."

Schatz started the feature on the pole but it was Saldana who led the first lap and the 11 that followed. Through early cautions and battles farther back, including one between Schatz and Paul McMahan for second, Schatz kept his sights on the lead.

On lap 11, as the Outlaws were just four laps back from a caution, Schatz made his move on Saldana. After a battle down the front stretch, he cleared Saldana coming out of turn two.

"The racetrack changed a lot during that feature I was kind of surprised," Schatz said. "I thought it would be around the top but it got pretty good on the bottom too. So that's when having a great STP race team comes in and those guys just had a flawless racecar."

As the race progressed and Sweet, who moved into the second position after getting around Saldana in lapped traffic, bore down on him, Schatz fought his way through lapped traffic.

"You've always got to assume that there's someone coming behind you and be racing ahead of you," Schatz said. "You've got to be smart and know who it is and kind of read the racetrack."

With one more win, Schatz, who now has 19 on the season, becomes the first driver since Steve Kinser in 2002 and 2003 to have back-to-back seasons with 20 wins or more. He extended his championship points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 214.

Sweet, the Outlaws' leading rookie, started the feature in fourth and was able to take advantage of the cautions to move into the top-three. In the middle of the feature as he worked his way through lapped traffic, he was able to close the gap on Saldana and get around him for second.

As the feature moved into its closing laps, Sweet tried different lines to catch Schatz as the two continued to maneuver through lapped traffic. Sweet was not able to make it happen.

"Donny just made all the right moves," Sweet said. "He's tough to beat right now. He's got a lot of confidence and that's why he wins so many races. We had a car capable of competing with him tonight which is really nice. And we had chances there but he never left the door open and made all the right moves through traffic and we came up a little short."

Sweet, who is leading the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year presented by ButlerBuilt standings, said the season has been up and down for his SureTest Supplies team.

"It's a long grueling tour out here on the World of Outlaws and this is my first full year under my belt and I think I underestimated a little bit of the traveling and some of the places we go… I just wish we could be a little more consistent. If we can end the year on a high note I think that would be good."

Saldana led the first 12 laps of the feature in his Motter Equipment car. As the A main wore on, Saldana said he didn't adjust quickly enough to changing conditions.

"You're never really happy with third but we've been struggling of late so I'll take it," Saldana said. "When I got to lapped traffic I needed to get my wing back faster. Once I did get my wing back I was a lot better - I just did it too late."

Saldana credited Schatz for his adeptness in maneuvering through lapped traffic. He said that skill is really the key to winning on short tracks like Skagit.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series heads south to Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. on Mon., Sept. 1. The Outlaws then race at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore. on Sept. 2 and Southern Oregon Speedway in Medford, Ore. on Sept. 3 before heading to California for a three race swing.

SKAGIT SPEEDWAY NOTES:
Donny Schatz scored his 19th win of the season and fifth in a row… With just one more win, Donny Schatz will become the first driver since Steve Kinser in 2002 and 2003 to have back-to-back seasons with more than 20 wins… Schatz has not finished outside the top-three since July 18… Joey Saldana scored his 22nd quick time of the season… Jason Solwold was the KSE Hard Charger recipient of the night after winning the Last Chance Showdown and advancing ten positions in the A main to finish in 10th.

Another Dominate Night for Schatz as he wins at Monster Meltdown

Schatz scores his 18th win of the season and fourth in a row during night one of the Monster Meltdown at Skagit Speedway

ALGER, Wash. - Aug. 29, 2014 -
With another dominate performance during night one of the Monster Meltdown at Skagit Speedway on Friday night, Donny Schatz continued a podium streak that began on July 19 and World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win streak that now stretches four races.

Schatz, who won 23 races last season with his STP/Armor All team, is proving especially formidable this season as his 18th win of the season extended his championship points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 197.

"It always feels good to win," Schatz said. "Especially out here at a place we've not been so swell. Hats off to the whole STP team - these guys should be up here (on the podium). They're doing a phenomenal job. They give me a racecar every night that's capable of winning and it's done that. It's an awful fun position to be in."

Luck was on Schatz's side throughout the night. The dash inversion draw put him on the outside pole for the dash and ultimately helped him to the same starting position in the A main. Then, during the feature, Schatz had trouble just before an open red flag.

"We got to lapped traffic before that red and it just kind of started to get tight, I couldn't stay on the bottom, I was driving across the racetrack and the guys told me there was more air in the left rear than there was in the right rear when we stopped. We had some sort of bleeder issue and got it fixed up and went on."

With 66 A mains in the books so far this season, Schatz is slightly ahead of his wins pace from last season - he had 17 up to this point. The last driver to score more than 23 wins in a single season was Steve Kinser in 2003.

The green flag fell on the 25-lap, $8,000 to win A main with Cody Darrah and Schatz on the front row. Schatz jumped out front after battling Darrah through turns one and two but a caution flew on lap one as last year's champion Pittman spun in turn four. The field reset and again Schatz jumped to the lead. As he did that, a battle for second took over, as Darrah fought to hold the position over Brad Sweet who by that point had moved into third. On lap three, Sweet took over the position.

A red flag hit the early portion of the race on lap four after contact between Austen Wheatley and Trey Starks. When the race returned to green Schatz led Sweet, Darrah and Madsen.

On lap 16, as Madsen just fought his way past Darrah for third, a red flag flew as contact left Darrah on his roof and Kraig Kinser done for the night. Both drivers were OK. With the extended red, World of Outlaws officials opened up the track to the teams, giving Schatz and others the opportunity to make minor adjustments.

A final restart, with just nine to go, had Schatz leading Sweet and Madsen to the green flag. Schatz jumped out to a commanding lead as a battle ensued for second. In the closing laps, Madsen discovered the middle line worked well for him through one and two, and the top line in three and four. This gave him the momentum he needed to get around Sweet, who was running the bottom, and take over the second spot.

Schatz won with Madsen in second, Sweet in third, Joey Saldana in fourth and Paul McMahan in fifth.

Madsen said the final red flag was frustrating for him as he closed in on the leaders in his American Racing Custom Wheels car.

"Brad and Donny weren't that far ahead of me (at the red)," Madsen said. "But obviously that's sprint car racing. Then you've got to go back and attack because it's a double file restart."

"Excellent run - I just really want to thank (crew chief Tyler Swank), (and crew members) Chris (Bowe) and Brandon (Ikenberry) for the great job they've been doing… it was kind of a frustrating race because just when we felt like we would get going the yellows kept coming out but that's the way it works sometimes. It was just great to get a top three."

Sweet, who has 23 top-fives and five wins in his SureTest Supplies car this season, said if he had the opportunity to replay the final laps of Friday night's feature over, he would have obviously moved to the top in turns three and four to stop Madsen's momentum.

"He was searching around and Kerry's been good all year and really aggressive," Sweet said.

He said he was looking forward to the lapped traffic but cautions stifled that. With Schatz so good in open air on the restarts, Sweet said the No. 15 was the car to beat.

"(A podium finish is) nice - the SureTest car, we've been in a bit of a slump, so it's nice to be back on the front straightaway."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finishes up the Monster Meltdown at Skagit Speedway on Sat., Aug. 30. The Outlaws then head south to Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. on Sept. 1 before events in Oregon and California.

SKAGIT SPEEDWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz scored his 18th win of the season and fourth in a row… Donny Schatz is ahead of his 23 win pace last year - the last driver to score more than 23 wins in one season was Steve Kinser in 2003… Schatz has not finished outside the top-three since July 18… Shane Stewart scored the quick time of the night - his fourth of the season… Barry Martinez was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 9 positions to finish in 13th.

World of Outlaws Legend Sammy Swindell Announces Retirement

Three-time champ was one of series' original racers

CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 25, 2014 -
The numbers and statistics are only a measure of the legend, but Sammy Swindell will be remembered as one of the greatest drivers in World of Outlaws history.

Swindell, who on Monday announced his retirement from full-time racing effective immediately, is a three-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion who achieved 294 victories. The Memphis, Tenn., area native was one of the original Outlaws who helped grow the series from its 1978 origins at Devil's Bowl Speedway into the premier sanctioning body it is today.

A calculating driver on the track, Swindell also is highly respected for his skills in building and setting up his cars, dedicating his life to perfecting the science of racing.

"Sammy's talent is more than a driver, he is an innovator," World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers said. "He was one of the 'Big 3' along with Steve Kinser and Doug Wolfgang in the early days, and he persevered through the years. He was a threat to win every night. I hope he and Kevin find all the success they want."

At 58, Swindell has been racing since he was 15 years old. Now, along with his wife Amy, he plans to help and support his son Kevin, who is achieving success in the NASCAR ranks.

"We have been fortunate to have one of the greatest racers of all-time compete in our series right from day one," said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. "We wish Sammy and Amy the best as they move on to support Kevin's racing aspirations."

Schatz Sweeps Canada with Oil City Cup Win

He is the first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series driver to sweep all five Canada events in a single season

NISKU, ALBERTA - Aug. 23, 2014 -
Saturday night, Donny Schatz did what no other World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series driver before him has ever done - with his win on the second night of the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway he became the first driver to sweep all five Canada events in a single season.

"I love Canada!" Schatz said. "We've always had great races when we've come up here and always enjoyed it."

"(The Oil City Cup win is) not just for me, it's for this whole STP race team. These guys are unbelievable and they definitely do their job to the best of their abilities. Hats off to them. Without their hard work and dedication and what they do, there's no way I'd be standing here."

Schatz, who started the feature in fifth, charged forward through a caution plagued first seven laps and battled polesitter Daryn Pittman for the lead.

"My racecar was really good," said Schatz, who now has 17 wins on the season and a three-race win streak. "I had to move around and be in lanes that other people weren't. It's fun to be in that position. I was disappointed obviously that we saw the yellow come back out but that's all part of racing. You deal with it. You have to find a way to overcome that and get yourself back up there. It was a fun race."

In addition to the race victory, Schatz scored the Oil City Cup after winning on the first night of the event.

As Schatz continues to roll through the last part of the season, he finds himself leading the championship standings by 177 points. Incredibly, the last time the five-time champion finished a feature outside the top-three was on July 18 at Williams Grove Speedway. Schatz finished in ninth that night. His streak of podium finishes now extends to 14 in a row, including eight of the last 11 wins.

As the Outlaws head to the west coast next week, Schatz carries this momentum and the knowledge that the last time the series was at Skagit Speedway and Grays Harbor Raceway, he scored victories at both tracks.

Pittman and Steve Kinser led the field to the green flag on the 3/8-mile oval. That was short lived however as Cody Darrah wrecked coming out of turn two and ended up on his roof. Darrah was OK and went on later to finish the feature in 10th.

The field reset and as it went green again, Schatz took the opportunity to get around Kraig Kinser and Paul McMahan to take over the fourth position. One lap later, another caution fell after the 11EH of Marc Duperron spun in turn four. Another green flag was followed by another quick yellow after the 56 spun. It was bad luck for Schatz who had just powered past Brad Sweet and Steve Kinser to take over the second position.

The cautions were not over, but on the next run Schatz did have better luck, getting around Sweet and then battling Steve Kinser for the second position. At the same time Paul McMahan, who started the feature in third in his CJB Motorsports car but had fallen back through the early cautions, moved himself back to fourth after getting around Sweet.

The final caution of the night fell on lap seven. As the field again restarted, Pittman jumped to the lead. With Schatz in tow, Pittman went high, wobbled a bit coming off of two and gave Schatz the opportunity he needed.

"I wanted to choose the outside (starting position) from the beginning of the race to be honest with you," Pittman said. "I really thought I could get a better start from the outside but I'd won every start, the Dash and up to that point in the A main - and still won that start with Donny. The problem was I just didn't feel like I could get a run off of four to really enter one on the top like I needed to, so when I slid myself in one and two you know you're opening the door for somebody to do something on the bottom and that's exactly what happened."

As the Outlaws hit lap 10, McMahan found his way around Steve Kinser, moving into the top-three. Farther back, Logan Schuchart drove his Shark Racing car from 14th up to seventh.

By midway, McMahan had caught Pittman as the two worked their way through lapped traffic. McMahan took over the second spot from Pittman, but the move was short lived.

"I got by Daryn and then I got caught up behind another lapped car," McMahan said. "I kind of tried to slide him and it just scrubbed off so much speed and Daryn was able to get around me again."

As the laps ticked off, Schuchart moved himself into the top-five and then began to reel in McMahan for the third position. Up front, as Schatz struggled to get around lapped traffic, Pittman closed the gap but ultimately came up short.

"I made a pretty big mistake with five or six to go off of two that killed my run," Pittman said. "We were coming back to him."

Schuchart gained on McMahan, getting around Sweet for the fourth position. Time ran out for the young driver though as he finished the night in fourth, his fifth top-five finish of the season.

Schatz scored his 17th win of the season and his third in a row.

Pittman, the reigning World of Outlaws champion, complimented his Great Clips Racing team on their second place finish Saturday night.

"Definitely felt like we had a car good enough to win," Pittman said. "Like I said, the track got slicker and harder and we got better and started coming back to (Schatz). Had a good run there (just struggled in lapped traffic) and let Donny check out too far and once he got that far, I'm surprised we were able to run him down like that. Just shows how good a car we had."

McMahan who picked up his 35th top-five of the season said the lapped traffic was a particular struggle at Castrol.

"The racetrack was awful wide and it slowed down a bunch and then the lapped cars - they got going good… It started rolling around here really well and they were hard to get by."

"They gave me a good racecar tonight - we just came up a little short."

Schuchart scored the KSE Hard Charger Award for the night after starting the feature in 14th and advancing 10 positions. It is the second night in a row the Shark Racing Team has won the award - Schuchart's teammate Jacob Allen won the Hard Charger Award on night one of the Oil City Cup.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Fri., Aug. 29 at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. for the first night of the two night Monster Showdown. The Outlaws then head south to Grays Harbor Raceway in Alger, Wash. on Sept. 1 before events in Oregon and California.

CASTROL RACEWAY NOTES:
Donny Schatz scored his 17th win of the season… Night two of the Oil City Cup was the same race Schatz scored his 17th win in 2013… Schatz has not finished outside the top-three since July 18… Kerry Madsen got the quick time of the night - his sixth of the season… Logan Schuchart was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 10 positions to finish in fourth… Brad Sweet, Steve Kinser and Daryn Pittman all won their heat races.

A Dominate Night at Castrol Raceway Gives Donny Schatz His 16th Win of the Season

Schatz extends his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 169

NISKU, ALBERTA - Aug. 22, 2014 -
Donny Schatz is on a roll. Since July 19 he has finished no worse than third, giving him 13 straight podium finishes, and he has World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series wins in seven of the last ten races, including Friday night's dominate performance on night one of the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway.

Schatz started the feature in third in his STP/Armor All car and powered to the lead before the field made it around the 3/8-mile oval for the first time.

"We had a very good car at the beginning and we were able to stick to the bottom and get by those guys," Schatz said.

On lap five, Schatz's three second lead was erased by a caution. The caution flag flew again on lap seven and lap 20, erasing sizable leads for Schatz each time.

"You just have to take what you get. We're never a fan of cautions but it happens," Schatz said. "The only thing it does is it lets the tires cool down and you always wonder if they're going to reheat, if the car is going to feel the same. There are a lot of factors - what do I do next?"

Another factor the Tony Stewart Racing driver contended with throughout much of the night was lapped traffic. Schatz battled through, even passing three cars on one lap.

As the 35-lap feature wore on, Schatz struggled to maintain his earlier speed on either the top or the bottom. This opened up an opportunity for Joey Saldana, who was running second, to make a run for the lead. On the lap 20 restart, Saldana slid Schatz through turn four.

"That was the only shot I had at it so I was trying everything I could… (the track) was very technical and you have to have a good racecar," said Saldana, who started the feature on the outside pole and spent much of the night in his Motter Equipment car running in that position.

"We just didn't know where to run," Schatz said. "It was awful slick in three and four - I was bouncing off the fence and couldn't really get around on the bottom. (Saldana) must have gotten a good run and gone for the slider and it wasn't going to stick. All we had to do was turn and go back underneath him. We did the best we could.

"These STP guys keep doing a phenomenal job with this racecar. It's fun to drive right now."

In the closing laps, David Gravel, who spent much of the night running third in his Roth Motorsports car, got around Saldana for second and set his sights on the lead. With a car that was able to run the faster top line, Gravel was making up ground on Schatz.

"Last five, six laps I thought I was as good as Donny there," Gravel said. "Just a little too late. I wish this was a 40-lapper."

"The top was best for me - Joey was running the top too," Gravel said. "It was kind of tough for me to gain much, but I thought, with open track, I was maybe just as good as Donny. But he got through lapped traffic very, very well."

This was Gravel's 18th top-five finish of the season.

Saldana, who ultimately finished the night in third, said the track was challenging throughout the feature.

"As a driver you just can't make a mistake because the track is so unique and slick and heavy and on the fence," Saldana said. "It's just everything you can imagine, you get to race on here. We had a shot at it and that's all you can ask for."

"Hats off to Donny, he's on a tear right now. I think if you beat him, you know you accomplished something pretty special. We've just got to get a little better."

With his win, Schatz again extended his lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 169 points in the battle for the 2014 championship. Schatz also heads into night two of the Oil City Cup leading the fight to become the weekend's champion.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to action on Sat., Aug. 23 for night two of the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway. The Outlaws then head to the west coast, making stops in Washington, Oregon and California.

CASTROL RACEWAY NOTES: Donny Schatz scored his 16th win of the season… Donny Schatz extended his points lead to 169 over Daryn Pittman… David Gravel scored his eighth quick time of the season, the third most of any driver this season… Joey Saldana broke the tie for fourth in the points standings with Kerry Madsen. Saldana now holds the position outright with a two point lead on Madsen… Jacob Allen was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing five positions to finish in 14th… Kerry Madsen, Cody Darrah and Joey Saldana all won their heat races.

At A Glance: Outlaws Look to Stop Schatz at Oil City Cup

Kerry Madsen won at Castrol Raceway last season, while Joey Saldana has three wins at the track

CONCORD, N.C. - Aug. 21, 2014 -
As the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series begins its western swing at the Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Aug. 22 and 23, points leader Donny Schatz carries the momentum of recent wins and unmatched consistency through the 'Month of Money.'

Since July 18 - the first night of Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway - Schatz has finished no worse than third with his STP/Armor All team. After his win at Nodak Speedway on Aug. 17, the Tony Stewart Racing driver has 12 straight podium finishes. Schatz has won six of the last nine races and has a 154 point lead in his quest for a sixth championship.

Coming into this same weekend last year, Schatz had 16 wins and sat 42 points out of the championship lead. Schatz went on to overcome challenges at the track, finishing second on night one of the Oil City Cup and winning night two.

Two drivers looking to stop Schatz's momentum are Kerry Madsen and Joey Saldana. Both drivers have five wins on the season and have found previous success at Castrol Raceway - Madsen held off Schatz on the first night of the Oil City Cup in 2013 while Saldana scored three wins at the track over the course of the 2009 and 2010 Outlaws seasons.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series begins its eight race swing down the west coast on Aug. 29 and 30 with stops at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. The Outlaws follow that up with additional events in Washington, Oregon and California, including the two-night Gold Cup Race of Champions on Sept. 5 and 6 in Chico, Calif.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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