DIRTcar Nationals kicks off the 2016 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Feb. 12 to 14, 2016
CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 17, 2015 - The 2015 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season has officially drawn to a close. The historic season saw Donny Schatz add his name to the record books and join some of the most elite names in the history of motorsports.
Through 75 races, 2015 is a season no one will soon forget. These are the numbers that defined the year.
544 - The difference in points between championship winner Donny Schatz and second place finisher Shane Stewart. It is the biggest end-of-season points differential between the top-two drivers since Steve Kinser's 31-win season in 1992. In 2005 Kinser picked up his final series championship by a margin of 543 points over Jason Meyers.
204 - The total number of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature wins Donny Schatz has won in his career. He is the third winningest driver in series history. Three-time series champion Sammy Swindell is ahead of Schatz with 294 wins.
178 - The streak of races Donny Schatz has without a DNF. The streak dates back to September 2013.
75 - The total number of completed features during the season. Events were run in 23 U.S. States and two Canadian provinces. There were 11 rain outs during the season with three events postponed due to rain.
31 - Donny Schatz's win total in 2015 tied him with Steve Kinser for the third-most single season series wins. Kinser accomplished the feat in 1992. The 'King of the Outlaws' continues to hold the record for the most single-season wins (46 in 1987) and second most single-season wins (36 in 1991).
22 - The number of different drivers who won a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature during the 2015 season. The total continues a now four year trend for the series with the total number of different winners over 20. The last time there were fewer than 20 different winners was 2011 when there were 17 different winners.
7 - The number of championships Donny Schatz now has following his historic season. He joins motorsports greats like Richard Petty (NASCAR), Dale Earnhardt (NASCAR), Michael Schumacher (F1) and Jeremy McGrath (AMA) with seven championships in their respective racing series.
3 - Stewart Friesen, Greg Wilson and Dusty Zomer became first-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winners in 2015. Friesen had the added distinction of being just the second-ever Canadian born driver to win a series event and the first ever to win on Canadian soil.
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action and kicks off the 2016 season at DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park February 12 to 14, 2016. The full series schedule will be released during the Performance Racing Industry show on Thursday, December 10.

For the Seventh Time, Donny Schatz is Crowned the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Champion
Jason Johnson is named the 2015 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year
CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 11, 2015 - A history-making season wrapped up for Donny Schatz on Monday afternoon as he and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team accepted the 2015 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship at the annual 'Night of Champions' banquet.
Sitting among his friends, family and fellow competitors, Schatz received universal congratulations for his seventh championships in the last 10 seasons.
An emotional Schatz thanked his family for their support over the years and recalled the year that had just come to an end.
"Well, the golden year comes to an end," Schatz told the crowd. "I call it the golden year due to the fact that since I've been in the sport 15 has always been my favorite number, so it prides me to be able to have a year like this in 2015. But it's at the loss of two of the bigger influences in my life. My grandfather and the guy who let me sit in a sprint car for the first time and drive it, Doug Slocum. With the influence of these two men, I learned if you work at something long enough and hard enough, your idols will become your rivals."
Schatz said after nearly 20 years, he looks back on the memories and values each day more. He thanked the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team and his crew members Ricky Warner, Steve 'Scuba Swenson and Eric Prutzman for their ongoing commitment.
"Rick, Scuba, Eric, you guys are the very best at what you do," Schatz said. "Thank you for your hard work and dedication. It's an honor to be your driver. The great people at Chevrolet Performance and Bad Boy Buggies, thank you for instilling the confidence in this team and myself to promote and sell your products to race fans and customers.
"It takes every person in this room to make this sport what it has grown to be… The true passion of every individual in this room is what the name World of Outlaws stands for and I'm honored to be a part of that."
This is the fifth championship for Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing which has previous wins with Schatz in 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2015 and with Danny Lasoski in 2001.
Ricky Warner, Schatz's crew chief, took home honors as the 2014 Crew Chief of the Year. He thanked his family and crew members.
"After last season, us three got together and tried to figure out how we were going to do that better," Warner said. "I'd just like to thank Scuba, Eric and most of all (Donny). When you see some of the stuff he can do it makes you want to work hard. I just want to say thank you."
In addition to the championship, other honors were presented throughout the night.
Jason Johnson, who came into the 2015 season as the reigning American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) champion, was named the 2014 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Yeart.
Johnson and his Jason Johnson Racing team compiled six top-five finishes and 16 top-10 finishes throughout the season, including a second place at Eldora Speedway's Kings Royal.
Johnson thanked his family, crew and fellow competitors for their support through a trying year that saw a scary crash sideline him for several months.
"To race with the World of Outlaws has been a dream for a long, long time. This dream actually became a reality this year," Johnson said. "One person I've got to thank the most is my wife. Not only is she my wife, she is my biggest supporter and she's really half the car owner… the second person I've got to thank is the brother I never really had. It's the cousin who has been with me my whole career and that's (my crew chief) Phillip Dietz."
Eloy Gutierrez, the longtime timing and scoring official for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, was presented with the Ted Johnson Memorial Award for Outstanding Contribution to Sprint Car Racing.
Gutierrez, a fixture in the series, helped pioneer the use of electronic timing and scoring in dirt track racing and laid the earliest timing and scoring loops at tracks around the country. It was Gutierrez and a partner who sold series founder Ted Johnson on the idea in the late-1990s.
"I've been at this since 1968 and I'm probably old enough to be some of your grandfathers," Gutierrez said. "I think Brian Carter said it earlier, he said all of you have some significance to somebody, to your families. I'm going to flip that coin and let you know that all of you, drivers crews and my co-workers… all of you are a significant part of my life. I am honored to be here. I love what I do and I hope to do it for a lot longer... Thank you so much. I love all of you. This is a great honor."
J&J Auto Racing Inc. was named Chassis Builder of the Year, Shaver Engines won Engine Builder of the Year, Tony Stewart Racing won the VP Racing Fuels Award and Brad Sweet was the 2015 KSE Racing Hard Charger.

After completing their first full season on the World of Outlaws trail, Destiny Motorsports is pleased to announce that Paul McMahan has been hired to pilot their car with the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt’ in 2016.
“I am extremely excited for the 2016 season already,” Paul McMahan said. “I can’t wait to get home see my family, and then get to the shop and start preparing with the team for the Winter Heat Showdown and the World of Outlaws Tour.”
Monday morning, David Gravel announced he would be leaving the team, and the door opened for the California native turned Nashville, TN resident to take over the driving duties for Destiny Motorsports.
“First off this entire team wishes David Gravel the best of luck in his future endeavors, and we thank him for his services,” Destiny Motorsports owner, Rick Rogers said. “Moving forward, we are eager to get going with Paul McMahan in our car. He is a stand up guy off the track, and performance on the track certainly speaks volumes.”

Over the course of his career, McMahan has racked up 26 career World of Outlaws feature event wins, a stat that has Destiny Motorsports Crew-Chief, Scott Benic excited about the future.
“Paul McMahan is a veteran World of Outlaws driver that we are lucky to have,” Benic said. “We were able to show speed at times throughout the 2015 season, and having McMahan climb in out car, I feel confident we will be contending for wins in 2016.”
With the 2015 season wrapping up this past Sunday, preparations are already well underway for the Destiny Motorsports team to hit the track in Yuma, AZ for the 2nd Annual Winter Heat Showdown taking place in early January.
“This seems like it is going to be a great fit for my family, and I,” McMahan added. “Rick and Barb Rogers are great people, and I am really looking forward to working with Scott Benic again after some experience with him back in 1997.”

Joey Saldana And Roth Motorsports Team Up For 2016 World of Outlaws Season
As the 2015 World of Outlaws season comes to a close in Charlotte, NC, Roth Motorsports has been busy getting prepared for 2016 as the team will return to the World Of Outlaws Tour with Brownsburg, IN driver, Joey Saldana behind the wheel.
“I am extremely lucky, and thankful, that Dennis and Teresa Roth have given me the opportunity to drive their car on the World of Outlaws tour in 2016,” Joey Saldana said. “They gave me a chance back in 1996 and in 2001, and to come back and drive for them in 2016 is really special. With this door opening, I really have to thank Dan and Ruth Motter for everything they did for my family over the last three seasons. With that team we had some great supporters, and I really appreciate all the support Doug Harris of HEMsaw, and Lonnie Olson with Beltline Body Shop provided. ”
Joey Saldana has had a storied career with the World of Outlaws including winning the 1996 Kevin Gobreicht Rookie of the Year, the famed Kings Royal on two separate occasions in 2002 and 2006, the World of Outlaws portion of the Four Crown Nationals on four occasions, as well as two Gold Cup Race of Champions triumphs in 2007 and 2009.
“Teaming up with Roth Motorsports, I know we will be in contention to win some big races,” Saldana added. “Roth Motorsports has a great program in place and I am looking forward to being a part of it in 2016.”
Some other marquee wins over the course of Saldana’s storied career include an Iron Man 55 win, a Brad Doty Classic Win, and a win at the Eagle Nationals.
Currently, “The Brownsburg Bullet” sits sixth on the World of Outlaws All-Time Wins list with 93 triumphs (not including preliminary night wins), and will look to hit the century mark in the coming season.
“The World of Outlaws tour is tough, but I think we will be a strong team, and I am hoping to put us in the hunt on a nightly basis,” Saldana added.
“We are all very excited to have Joey Saldana with us in 2016,” Dennis Roth said. “Joey was the first driver I ever had on the World of Outlaw tour in 1996 and we are glad to have him back in 2016. It should be an exciting season and we are all looking forward to it.”
Making his return to the seat of the famed Roth Motorsports entry in 2016 after a couple of stints early in his career, Saldana still has some things he would like to accomplish including winning a World of Outlaws Championship, as well as a Knoxville Nationals.
“Dennis and Teresa Roth have the desire to win, and I share that desire with them,” Saldana added. “With the equipment Roth Motorsports provides, I am hopeful we will be in the hunt on a regular basis.”
Though with the team still being finalized, Saldana and Roth Motorsports will make their debut during the 2nd Annual Winter Heat Showdown in Yuma, AZ during the first week of action before kicking off their World of Outlaws campaign during the DIRTCar Nationals at the Volusia Speedway Park in February, an event that Saldana has won on three occasions.
“This is an exciting thing for me and my family, and I am excited to get to the shop, and get ready for the Winter Heat Showdown in January.”
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.

In that time, he has captured five victories and the 2013 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the year award. Among his five wins was a thriller in the 2014 Williams Grove National Open.
More details regarding the 2016 plans for the CJB Motorsports team will be released at a later date.
Saldana Dominates Bad Boy Buggies World Finals in His Final Run for Motter Motorsports
Schatz crowned 2015 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion
CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 8, 2015 - Joey Saldana gave everyone a reason to smile in his final appearance in the No. 71M Motter Equipment Motorsports car on Sunday night at the Bad Boy Buggies World Finals as he led a dominating performance to score his third World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season.
"It's kind of bittersweet really - this will probably be my last time driving the 71M," Saldana said in victory lane at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. "That's the awesome way to go out right there. I can't thank Ruth and Dan Motter enough for everything they've done for me these last three years - just giving me an opportunity to race at a high level."
Saldana and Motter announced late Sunday night they would be parting ways. The team's statement said Motter's efforts to secure sponsorship for 2016 were ongoing.
Saldana came into the final night of World Finals after taking the qualifying quick time on Thursday. It was the 17th quick time of 2015 for Saldana, who was the season's leading qualifier.
As the green flag fell on the rain postponed season finale that saw rare daytime racing for the World of Outlaws, Saldana jumped out front. In clean air, the 71M pulled away from the field as the scramble got underway behind him.
Logan Schuchart, who started on the outside front row, tried to run down the leader as Shane Stewart looked for second. Brad Sweet charged forward from sixth and was quickly on Schuchart's heels. The two drivers traded third place between lap seven and eight.
When the caution flag flew on lap five, Sweet pounced. On the restart Saldana led Stewart, Sweet, Stevie Smith, Daryn Pittman (who started the feature in 19th position) and Schuchart.
Saldana again pulled away in clean air but as he caught traffic on lap 14, Stewart and Sweet closed in. The caution again flew with 17 laps complete as Saldana maintained the lead. Smith got around Sweet on the restart but was no match for Pittman who continued his charge forward and took over the final podium position.
Saldana took the checkered flag in the first position with Stewart and Pittman close behind.
"This is awesome," Saldana said. "We've really had a good car this year - just too many DNFs and too many mistakes on my part. We've had a great car and led a lot of laps and tonight just showed how good our team is."
Pittman was the KSE Racing Hard Charger of the night after advancing 16 positions throughout the feature.
The finish was the 27th podium finish of the year for Stewart. He finishes 2015 second in the championship points standings with his Larson Marks Racing team.
Saldana closes out 2015 sixth in the championship standings with three wins, 37 top-five finishes and 54 top-ten finishes.
"I don't know what to say," Saldana said. "It's just awesome - awesome experience today and an awesome time to be a part of the World of Outlaws. I love what I do."
Schatz Crowned a Champion for the Seventh Time
With confetti in the air and fireworks in the distance, Donny Schatz joined World of Outlaws Late Model Series driver Shane Clanton and Super DIRTcar Series driver Matt Sheppard to be crowned a 2015 champion.
Schatz ends the season after a historic year that saw him cross over the double century mark in total wins and score the most single-season wins in 24 years. The championship is the seventh of his career - second only to 20-time champion Steve Kinser.
Schatz thanked his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team for the work they did all season to give him a chance to be in victory lane.
"(Tony Stewart) has done a fantastic job of assembling the best people to do their job and he lets us do our thing," Schatz said. "The guys on the race team, the Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance team, do a phenomenal job. The way they maintain the car, the way they set the car up, just the way they attack things. It's definitely an honor to drive that thing. There are days I can't get my job done and they carry me. That's what it takes, that's what teamwork is and that's why we're standing up here as champions."
With the enormity of the season and of his position in World of Outlaws history starting to sink in, Schatz said he and his team are already focused on the year to come.
"We're going to go home after this weekend as champions and we're going to wipe the slate clean just like we have to," Schatz said. "These guys are going to start working hard - they've already started working hard for next year. So you come back out and hope you can better yourself next year. That's going to be awfully tough but the group of guys that Tony Stewart has assembled, there wouldn't be a better group of guys to do it with. These guys are absolutely phenomenal. I'm looking forward to getting to that first race in Florida now."

Dusty Zomer Wins Wild World Finals Night Two
Picks up his first ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory
CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 6, 2015 - A wild night two of the Bad Boy Buggies World Finals at the Dirt Track at Charlotte turned into a big night for Dusty Zomer who picked up his first ever World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory.
Zomer started Friday night's feature in sixth and battled early into the top three. After leader Trey Starks pulled in with a bent tie-rod and Joey Saldana, who took over the lead, lost it to a broken top-wing sideboard, Zomer was in position.
Through the closing laps, he held off a hard -charging Greg Hodnett and Stevie Smith to claim the victory for his No. 82 Buffalo Wild Wings team.
"Super happy," Zomer said of the win. "Obviously didn't expect to come down here for the first time and pull off a win. We were able to get it done. We were at the right place at the right time. A few other guys had a little misfortune and I guess you need things to go your way sometimes. That's what happened and we're standing up here in victory lane."
Zomer joins Greg Wilson and Stewart Friesen as a first time winner this season. He was also the 22nd different driver to stand in victory lane this season and seventh different driver to win during World Finals weekend in the last four years.
After a delay for rain, crashes plagued the series heat races early in the night and caused two separate repairs to the catch fence. In all, it took more than three hours.
The 25-lap series feature got underway with 19-year-old Starks leading the field. He was on top of the charts through the first 12 laps, holding off Saldana on two restarts. As the caution flag again waved near the halfway point of the race, Starks was forced into the work area with a bent tie-rod. That put Saldana into the lead. He led the restart and the next four laps until damage to his top-wing sideboard sidelined him.
Zomer battled forward on an early restart into third.
"I started sixth and shot up around some guys on the outside and got to third," Zomer said. "That was what put me in position to be in position when those other guys had things break."
He took over the top spot on lap 17 and held off Hodnett through traffic in the final eight laps.
Hodnett, who has one Outlaws win this season, said throughout the night the biggest challenge for he and his No. 27 Lelands.com team was surviving the conditions.
"I figure the only reason we finished second is because everyone else fell out," Hodnett said. "We just need to get better and hopefully put ourselves in a position to start towards the front again."
Stevie Smith finished the night on the podium in third in his No. 51s Miller Bros. Chevrolet car. Smith has two Outlaws wins this season, both at Williams Grove Speedway.

Sammy Swindell and Joey Saldana Set Quick Times for Bad Boy Buggies World Finals
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action tomorrow night at the Dirt Track at Charlotte
CONCORD, N.C. - Nov. 5, 2015 - Sammy Swindell and Joey Saldana kicked off the first night of the Bad Boy Buggies World Finals on Thursday by taking the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series qualifying quick times.
Against a 58-car field, the biggest the event has ever seen, Swindell scored his third quick time of 2015 in the qualifying session that set the field for Friday night. The three-time series champion had a fast lap of 12.506 seconds. Swindell said qualifying up front was critical heading into tomorrow night.
"It makes it a lot easier to get locked into the dash and get that good spot to start in the A main," said Swindell, who drives the No. 1 Big Game Tree Stands car for CJB Motorsports.
In the second qualifying session which set the field for Saturday, Saldana, the season's leading qualifier, picked up his 17th quick time of 2015 with a lap of 12.904 seconds. Saldana, who qualified his No. 71m Motter Equipment car third in the earlier session, said it helped to go out later the second time.
Going into Friday and Saturday, Saldana said the qualifying runs give him a lot of confidence.
"We've had fast cars all year - we just need to finish it off," Saldana said. "We've done it a few times but not enough. Hopefully we can do it again this weekend. It's a great venue to race at and a lot people get to see us that don't normally get to see us. I've been lucky enough to win here a couple of times… Hopefully we can do that in the next few days."
