Donny Schatz Scores 11th Win of the Season at Cornwall Motor Speedway

Schatz gets his second win in as many nights and remains undefeated with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series at Cornwall

CORNWALL, Ont. - July 27, 2014 -
Donny Schatz scored his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win in as many nights Sunday after battling David Gravel and Kerry Madsen at Cornwall Motor Speedway. It was Schatz's 11th win of 2014, tying him with Daryn Pittman for the most on the season.

Schatz, who won the Outlaws' first and most recent appearance at the track in 2012, said Canada has been very good to him.

"[I] always look forward to coming," Schatz said. "When we saw those rain clouds earlier in the day we were trying to get them to go away and obviously it worked. Can't control Mother Nature, but she was obviously a race fan tonight. I hope you guys enjoyed it - it was great to be here tonight. The track was fun for me."

The driver of the No. 15 STP/Armor All car complimented his team for the work they have been doing to get him to 11 wins.

"This team is really operating right now," Schatz said. "They're doing a phenomenal job. Everything they keep doing to these racecars is making big changes. Makes for a happy driver."

Schatz extended his championship points lead again Sunday night. He now has an 83 point lead over Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is 135 points out of the lead.

Kerry Madsen and David Gravel led the field to the green flag as Madsen jumped out to an early lead. Gravel got off track in the opening laps and slipped back to the fifth position. The first caution of the night flew on lap six.

As the green flag again flew, Schatz made his move, reeling in Madsen, as the Australia-native approached lapped traffic. After completing lap 10, Schatz slid Madsen and made it stick, taking over the lead on lap 11.

Shortly after, three cautions fell in quick succession. When the green flag again came out on lap 20, Schatz led Madsen, Paul McMahan, Kraig Kinser and David Gravel. In sixth, Logan Schuchart had advanced two positions from his eighth place starting position. By lap 30 Gravel was making a charge back after his earlier problem, moving into the third position, while Schuchart continued his advance forward to fourth.

The final caution of the night came out on lap 38 and set up a green, white, checkered finish. When the green flag dropped Schatz quickly built on his lead, with Madsen in second, and Gravel and Schuchart battling for third. Schuchart quickly slid Gravel and took over third.

Schatz took the checkered flag in first with Madsen second and Schuchart third.

Madsen's second place finish was his second in as many nights in his American Racing Custom Wheels car. He led the first ten laps of Sunday's feature.

"We'll take second all night long," Madsen said. "We want to win them but we got beat by a better car tonight. Anytime we can finish on the podium it's a great result… It's extremely tough competition so we're definitely not disappointed. This is a great momentum builder for us and gives us a lot of confidence in the team for the rest of the year and the big races coming up."

Madsen thanked his crew members and team owners Bob and Peter Gavranich.

Schuchart got his third podium finish of the season at Cornwall in his Your Auto Source car - the first came at Thunderbowl Raceway, where he finished second, and the second came at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, where he finished third.

Schuchart, who took the KSE Hard Charger Award of the night after advancing five positions, said the caution flags late in the race helped him make up ground and make the passes he needed to score a podium finish.

"We got racing pretty good but everyone is pretty equal so it makes it kind of hard. It was a slick track - it made it racy, it made it fun to drive on," Schuchart said. "I think the last couple yellows helped us to get a couple more cars."

"Anytime you run good, you like it. All these tracks are new tracks to us, especially up here in Canada. But we're having fun, we like it and we're happy to be here."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada at Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown. The Outlaws then travel to Pevely, Mo. for the Prelude to the Ironman and the Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on August 1 and 2.

Patience Pays Off for Donny Schatz as He Wins at Autodrome Drummond

This was Schatz’s 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season and his first at the track

DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - July 26, 2014
- Donny Schatz charged past lapped cars and his competition Saturday night at Autodrome Drummond on the way to his 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

Schatz, who spent much of the race in his fifth place starting position, had his patience pay off as his STP/Armor All car and the track came around.

"You need traffic, you need your racecar to change," Schatz said. "You put 30 gallons of fuel in these things, they're not as fun to drive as they are at the end. We had to wait for the racecar to change a little bit - the track was going to change a little bit. This STP team did a phenomenal job making the right changes for the feature."

As Schatz got around Cody Darrah and then Kerry Madsen he said he didn't focus on what was behind him.

"If I do my job right and get [my] car stuck, you don't have to worry about what's going on behind you," Schatz said. "And my car was very good, very stuck - I could go around the racetrack. I just had to pick the right line to get through those guys and I did… like I said, it was a fun race."

In addition to picking up his 10th win of the season, Schatz improved his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 63. Third place Paul McMahan is 121 points out of the lead.

In front of a full house at Autodrome Drummond, Cody Darrah led the field to the green flag in his Ollie's Bargain Outlet car with Paul McMahan on the outside front row. Darrah led the first lap as McMahan worked to hold back Daryn Pittman.

Kraig Kinser brought out the only caution of the race on lap three after coming to a stop in the back shoot. After a brief stop in the work area, Kinser returned to the track. Darrah maintained his lead on the restart as McMahan and Madsen advanced their positions, getting around Pittman, who had a bad restart.

As Darrah hit lapped traffic on lap eight, Madsen, who had moved into the second position, looked for a way around. It took Madsen nine more laps. As the two drivers crossed the start/finish line, Madsen dove his American Racing Custom Wheels car low into turn one and slid Darrah through the corner. When the two hit backstretch, Madsen was in the lead.

Schatz, who maintained his fifth place starting position through the early portion of the race, began to make his move on lap 14. He got around Pittman near the halfway point of the feature and then set his sights on Paul McMahan, who he got around just a few laps later.

On lap 22, Madsen came off of turn two and got off track down the back stretch. His slowed momentum allowed Darrah to close the gap. As Darrah dove low into turn three he and Madsen touched tires. Madsen maintained position as Schatz, in third place, closed the gap on the two drivers. Schatz took over the second place position from Darrah on lap 24. Then, after reeling in Madsen, Schatz passed him on the backstretch going into turn three. Schatz led lap 27 and was never seriously challenged again.

Madsen, who scored the quick time during qualifying earlier in the night and started the feature in fourth, led nine laps through the mid-point of the race.

"Yeah I was trying to push and you want to build up a lead," Madsen said. "I had pretty nice, comfortable groove on the top but I just didn't do a good enough job in traffic and made a mistake and let Donny drive right by. Congrats to Donny, congrats to Cody running third. It's still a great result for our team."

Darrah, who won last year's feature at Autodrome Drummond, led the first 17 laps of Saturday night's A main. He said he moved around throughout the night looking for the right line.

"I was just kind of moving around," Darrah said. "From the start I felt pretty free and I was a little worried. As I brought my wing back to get my right rear on the track, when I had to slow down to move to the bottom I'd get myself tight... Back when I got to third Kerry made some mistakes and got off track and I was never able to capitalize but I love Drummondville. It's an awesome place to come to."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Canada Sunday night at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont. The Outlaws then head Ohswheken Speedway on Tuesday, July 29 for the Six Nations Showdown.

AUTODROME DRUMMOND NOTES: Donny Schatz scored his 10th win of the season… Kerry Madsen picked up the quick time at Autodrome Drummond, his fourth of the year… Donny Schatz won the KSE Hard Charger Award after advancing four positions to win the feature… 2013 winner Cody Darrah won the dash and started on the pole for tonight's A main.

Daryn Pittman Charges to 11th Win of the Season at Fulton Speedway

Jessica Zemken scores best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish

FULTON, N.Y. - July 23, 2014 -
Daryn Pittman charged to his 11th win of the season Wednesday night at Fulton Speedway, as Sprakers, N.Y.-native Jessica Zemken scored her best ever World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series finish.

Pittman, who sits just 55 points out of the championship lead, said the win was the most uncomfortable he has had this season.

"I just knew we were going to get smoked," Pittman said in victory lane. "I honestly thought we were going to go from the lead to fourth or fifth in a lap. I just didn't know what to do. I was lost as a driver. The pace of the race just changed dramatically there."

"I was good on top in one and two and when I could run the top in one and two that really helped me hit the top in three and four."

Pittman said as he approached lapped traffic in his Great Clips #9, he noticed the cars were getting away from him.

"When I started running the bottom all the way around, I started making really bad laps in three and four on the bottom," he said. "I just kept waiting for somebody to show me their nose… It's an uncomfortable feeling as a driver when you're doing the wrong thing on the racetrack and you just don't know what to do. I was looking for the checkered about five laps before that and luckily it was just enough."

Pittman credited his crew chief Kale Kahne for making substantial changes after his dash win to give him the car he needed at the end of the feature.

Zemken said her Corr/Pak Merchandising team's third place finish means a lot - especially against the competition.

"It's like a win for us," she said. "To come here with the budget we have and the equipment that we have and be able to be here and be competitive with these guys - it's just awesome."

Zemken, who won her heat race earlier in the night and started the A main in sixth, said her experience at the track helped her understand how the surface would change throughout the night. She said she knew the bottom would be good later after the middle and top went away.

After losing her brakes with four to go, Zemken said she figured her night would be over.

"As soon as the brakes went to floor, I said this is what always happens," she said. "We have a good car, something bad's going to happen… They held up just enough to slow me down to be able to catch the bottom. And when I came up on Schatz I got underneath him a couple of times and I didn't even realize Saldana was a lapped car. I've got to say, that's the first time that I've been able to come around and lap Joey Saldana. I stuck behind him a little bit. I'll take third."

After winning the dash, Pittman started on the front row with David Gravel. As Pittman jumped out to an early lead, Gravel had his hands full with Cody Darrah. The two battled through the opening laps but Donny Schatz looked to take advantage in his STP/Armor All car. He got around Darrah by lap 10, as Gravel maintained the second position.

Farther back, Zemken was making her push forward, getting around Kraig Kinser in the fifth position and then taking the fourth spot from Darrah.

With less than 10 to go, Schatz got around Gravel for the second spot and set his sights on Pittman. As the A main entered its final laps and Pittman battled through lapped traffic, Schatz took one last look at Pittman.

Pittman took the checkered flag in first with Schatz second, Zemken in third, and after a drag race down the front stretch, Gravel in fourth and Darrah in fifth.

Schatz said he worked all night trying to find the right line on the track. He said he wished his team had been able to make a few more changes.

"I tried - that's all you can do," Schatz said. "The car was OK… We'll try harder next week."

The race for the championship remains tight between Pittman and Schatz. 55 points separate the two just past the halfway point of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series crosses the border on Saturday for the start of a three race swing through Canada. Autodrome Drummond in Drummondville, Que., hosts the Outlaws on Saturday, July 26. The Outlaws then make stops at Cornwall Motor Speedway in Cornwall, Ont., on Sunday, July 27 and Ohswheken Speedway in Ohswheken, Ont., on Tuesday, July 29.

FULTON SPEEDWAY NOTES: Following his win, Daryn Pittman is 55 points out the championship lead… Donny Schatz, Jason Sides and Jessica Zemken all won their heat races at Fulton… David Gravel scored his sixth quick time of the season - the third most of any driver… Larry Wight was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing five positions to finish in ninth.

Lance Dewease Leads a Posse Sweep of Williams Grove

Dewease is the 19th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 19, 2014 -
After a nearly three hour rain delay that pushed the start of the feature into the early morning hours of Sunday, Lance Dewease held off Donny Schatz to win night two of Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway. Dewease's win gave the Pennsylvania Posse a sweep of Summer Nationals and made him the 19th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season.

In the closing laps of the feature, Schatz gave Dewease a strong challenge.

"The lapped cars, I had to run the top," said Dewease, driver of the C.C. Dietz Builders car. "That was the only place I was any good at. I was trying to time the lapped cars so I could get a good run going into one so I could fly by them. I got to Chad and the 16 and they were kind of racing each other - kind of watched myself a little bit and I guess I backed off a little too much and let Donny try to slide me."

"This is special for me. It's been a while since I earned one of these flags. Anybody that knows me, this place means a lot to me and I love winning here and beating the Outlaws just makes it all the sweeter. It's a good rivalry between us and the Outlaws. They're great racers, we have great racers and that's what makes it so special."

Dewease, who ended a long drought with his win, scored the 300th win of his career. He has eight previous World of Outlaw wins.

Rain began to fall shortly after 9 p.m. bringing out red flag conditions. The Last Chance Showdown and A main had yet to be run on night two of Summer Nationals.

When track work began two hours later, most of the now wet but enthusiastic Williams Grove crowd remained at the facility. After brief hot laps sessions, the green flag fell on Last Chance Showdown. Dave Blaney went on to win with Brad Sweet, Greg Hodnett and Ryan Smith in close pursuit.

Lance Dewease and Lucas Wolfe led the field to the green flag in the A main. Wolfe, a Mechanicsburg, Pa. native, took an early lead as Schatz, who started fourth, challenged Shane Stewart for the third position. Following a red flag on lap two, Schatz took over the third position.

A caution on lap eight gave Dewease the opportunity he needed to get around Wolfe. Dewease led lap nine as Schatz took over the second place position from Wolfe.

On lap 18, Kraig Kinser experienced an engine failure and dropped oil onto the backstretch and into turns three and four right as the leaders caught up with him. Dewease got around, but Schatz hit the oil in his STP/Armor All car and after doing a complete 360-degree spin, kept his car going, maintaining position. A red flag flew right after, freezing the field as cleanup got underway.

Dewease jumped out to a dominate lead through much of what remained of the feature. Schatz closed the gap as the two encountered lapped traffic with just a few laps remaining. On lap 28, Schatz took one last shot at Dewease but could not get around.

"We ran him back down there at the end," Schatz said. "We needed traffic to win the race. It allowed us to get to him, got underneath him in three and four once but couldn't quite clear him. I thought we would get another run on him in the last lap but he cleared a lapped car and I didn't - just the way it worked."

After leading the first eight laps, Wolfe finished the night in the third position in his Zemco Speed Equipment car.

"It was certainly a little unusual tonight with the rain so we didn't know what the track was going to do," Wolfe said. "I just wasn't good enough there. It saved me having an open red there, I was able to work on it a little bit and salvage third.

"Disappointed to give up such a good opportunity like that, especially as good as the restarts were there on the top… but Lance did a great job. They were certainly a lot better, so congrats to them and their whole group. We'll just keep working on it and improve for the future."

Schatz extended his points lead over second place Daryn Pittman to 63 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 98 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series next makes a swing through New York State, returning to the track Sunday at Lebanon Valley Speedway. Fulton Speedway hosts the Outlaws Wednesday before a three race stretch through Canada.

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY NOTES: Lance Dewease became the 19th different winner of the season… Lance Dewease, Alan Krimes, Cody Darrah and Shane Stewart all won their heat races at Williams Grove… Don Kreitz Jr. scored the quick time on night two at Williams Grove… Danny Dietrich was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 15 positions to finish in ninth.

Posse Strikes Back as Hodnett Bests Marks, Saldana at Williams Grove Speedway

Hodnett becomes the 18th different World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series winner of the season; Hodnett and Marks give Posse 1-2 finish

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - July 18, 2014 -
Greg Hodnett led the Pennsylvania Posse to a World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, striking back on night one of the Summer Nationals after Outlaw Daryn Pittman won Thursday night at Lincoln Speedway.

Hodnett, who started the A main in fourth in his Lelands.com/Pasquariello's Auto Shop car, dominated the second half after getting around Outlaw Joey Saldana and fellow Posse Brent Marks on a restart. Hodnett said the double file restarts that had hurt him the night before at Lincoln, helped him at Williams Grove.

"We're just fortunate to be standing here," Hodnett said. "It's a great field of cars."

Hodnett, who has 12 previous World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series wins, became the 18th different winner of the season.

Saldana started on the front row with Justin Barger. Cody Darrah and Hodnett started in row two. As the green flag flew on the feature, Saldana jumped out to a large lead while Brent Marks moved from his sixth place starting position into third.

By lap 13, Marks, who had moved to second, was challenging Saldana for the lead as the two worked through lapped traffic. A red flag flew on lap 15 after contact between Kerry Madsen and Cody Darrah. The wreck ended Madsen's night and relegated Darrah to the back of the field.

When the race returned to green, Hodnett, who had advanced to the third position, made his move. Hodnett got around Marks, and then battled Saldana for the next two laps.

"I had been trying the bottom and middle a couple of times through the night and I knew if I was slow enough we could do it - and off a restart usually you are," Hodnett said. "So we got a good run down the front straight off of four, off the bottom, just kind of let it take its head and stay on the back wheels and try not to slip the tires. We got down into turn one and two, and pretty much just got under Joey enough to keep moving him up and keep pushing, pushing, pushing trying to get under him to get a good, clean run off the bottom. Fortunately for us that's what happened."

Hodnett took the lead on lap 17 and was never seriously challenged again.

"We're going to make the most of this one tonight because you never know when you'll get another one!" Hodnett said."

Marks finished second in his BAPS Auto Paint Supply car after getting around Saldana shortly after the mid-race restart. Despite that, Marks, who was closing the gap on Saldana when the red flag came out, said he did not want to see the race stoppage. He said he screwed up on the restart and that allowed Hodnett to get around him.

He credited his team for providing the equipment he needed to score his best ever Outlaws finish.

"We had a great car all night," Marks said. "I give all the credit to my guys - they bust their butts all the time to get me to the racetrack and we're able to do all these Outlaw races this year which has really helped me out. It got me on the front stretch here with a podium finish - finally.

"It was fortunate we had a really good run tonight. We were able to sneak in there through the invert and win the heat race and get in the dash. Coming from [sixth] to second is pretty neat here with the Outlaws show at Williams Grove. It's a great feeling."

Saldana, who has five wins on the season, closed out the night in the third position in his Motter Equipment car. He credited the competition in Central Pennsylvania and at Williams Grove on Friday night.

"My car was getting looser as the race went on," Saldana said. "I think that's why I took off. I was pretty good way too soon. To win these you've got to be good at the end not the beginning. We just missed it a little bit. You've got to learn from your mistakes and hope that we come out tomorrow and do a better job."

Hodnett and Marks weren't the only members of the Posse to have a good night. Lucas Wolfe scored the quick time and the Posse swept the Heat races. In the first heat race of the night, Ryan Taylor fought a fierce battle with Steve Kinser, beating the 20-time champion on the last lap.

Donny Schatz's points lead continued to shrink after his ninth place finish. He now leads Daryn Pittman by 42 points. Third place Paul McMahan is 87 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to historic Williams Grove Speedway Saturday for night two of the Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

WILLIAMS GROVE SPEEDWAY NOTES: Greg Hodnett became the 18th different winner of the season… Pennsylvania Posse members Ryan Taylor, Greg Hodnett, Justin Barger and Brent Marks won their heat races tonight… Joey Saldana was the highest finishing Outlaw of the night in third… Paul McMahan was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 10 positions to finish in sixth.

Outlaw Pittman Battles Posse to Win at Lincoln Speedway

Scores his 10th victory of the season, his first ever double-digit Outlaw season; closes championship points gap on Schatz

ABBOTSTOWN, Pa. - July 17, 2014 -
The Pennsylvania Posse gave Daryn Pittman a run for his money Thursday night at Lincoln Speedway - ultimately though the Posse was no match for Pittman as he notched his 10th World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

Pittman, who earlier this season swept both nights at Williams Grove after finishing third at Lincoln in his Great Clips car, credited his crew for providing him with the car he needed Thursday night to hold off strong challenges from J.J. Grasso, Alan Krimes and Brian Montieth.

"How about that crew I've got? Hats off to Kale Kahne. Man, he does a great job," Pittman said. "Kolten, Carber - these guys work their tails off every day and just give me a really good car. I'm only as good as the equipment I use and this car is pretty good every night."

20-time champion Steve Kinser led the field to the green flag but it was Pittman who led the first lap. Early on, J.J. Grasso challenged Pittman, before an issue side-lined Grasso for the night. As Kinser fell back in the field, Posse members Krimes and Montieth made their moves.

As cautions plagued the early laps of the race, Krimes, who started in fourth, advanced his way to second by lap seven. Through restart after restart, Krimes challenged Pittman but was not able to get around. Farther back in the field, Montieth, who started in 15th, had moved into the top-ten by lap eight.

As the laps ticked by, Krimes faced a challenge from Joey Saldana, but was able to hold him off. By lap 11, Montieth, who was dominate on the high-side of the track, had moved into the top-five and shortly after, found his way around Saldana. With his sights set on the lead, just a few laps later, Montieth took over the second spot.

"I knew when there was a car going around me on the outside it was more than likely him," Krimes said. "He gets going around the top pretty good around here. I tried to move up a little bit when he got around us and I was alright in three and four up there, but I wasn't very good in the top of one and two."

As Pittman ran the bottom, Montieth, dominate at the top in his Premiere Auto Works car, picked up position after position. Montieth caught Pittman in turns one and two with 18 complete. As Pittman slid to the top onto the backstretch, Montieth moved to the bottom, drag racing Pittman. Montieth took one last shot, sliding out of four, trying to hold the lead.

"Anybody who's raced here very long knows the last car number they want to see behind them with a couple of laps to go is that 21," Pittman said. "I moved to the top in one and two and the top in three and four and thought that's probably where he's at and I thought if I can make a couple of good laps here, I think we'll be OK."

Montieth was able to close the gap a couple of times as Pittman battled lapped traffic, but was never able to find a way around the Outlaws champion.

With the win, Pittman notched his first ever double-digit win season with the World of Outlaws. He is also now the winningest driver of the season, so far.

"This is a big accomplishment for me personally," Pittman said. "I've never gotten to double-digit wins in one year with the Outlaws so I'm pretty proud of that. This is a tough part of the country to come in and win, and this is probably one of the toughest racetracks to come in and win - just a great accomplishment for this team."

Montieth, a native of Phoenixville, Pa., said he has raced with Pittman enough to know not to show him his line around the track until he knew he could get around Pittman.

"He's raced with me," Montieth said. "I didn't really want to show him my nose until I knew I could get by him. If it weren't for the double restarts; I really made a lot of time up on them. We just keep finishing second a lot - we'll see what happens tomorrow night (at Williams Grove)."

Krimes, who finished the night in third in his Midnight Antiques car, said he was pleased to represent the Pennsylvania Posse fans and drivers.

"It always feels good to represent the local guys here," said Krimes, a Denver, Pa. native. "We've got a great group of guys that run here weekly and anytime you add the Outlaws to the mix there are probably 25 to 30 cars that can win on any given night here. To come out of here in the top three - we beat a lot of really good cars."

Pittman's win, combined with a 14th place finish by points leader Donny Schatz helped him continue to close the gap in the race for the Outlaws championship. Schatz's lead is now only 50 points over Pittman. Third place Paul McMahan is 93 points out of the lead.

Earlier in the night, Joey Saldana scored the quick time during time trials. It was his 18th quick time of the season.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Pennsylvania stopping next at the historic Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday nights for Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

LINCOLN SPEEDWAY NOTES:
Tonight's win gave Daryn Pittman his first double digit Outlaws season… Joey Saldana scored his 18th quick time of the season… Cory Haas was the KSE Hard Charger of the night, advancing 17 positions after starting in last… The Pennsylvania Posse took three of the top-five top spots at Lincoln.

Schatz Wins Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XXIII at Lernerville Speedway

Outlaw Cody Darrah battles the Posse’s Danny Dietrich to win the second feature of the night

SARVER, Pa. - July 15, 2014 -
Donny Schatz went back-to-back at Lernerville Speedway's Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Tuesday night, winning his second Silver Cup in as many World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series seasons and scoring his fifth overall.

Schatz, the third winningest driver in Outlaws history, tied with two-time champion Mark Kinser for the most Silver Cup wins all-time.

"I've had a lot of good runs here," Schatz said. "I've won this race several times - it's always good to get the win. I've always had a lot of fun here."

In addition to winning the $10,000 to win first feature, the five-time champion won a $5,000 bonus for taking home the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XXIII. This was Schatz's ninth win of the season.

As the green flag flew on the first of the twin 30-lap features, Paul McMahan led early as Ed Lynch Jr. challenged for the lead. By lap five, both Daryn Pittman and Schatz, who started fifth, got around Lynch and set their sights on McMahan. Schatz took over the second place spot in his STP/Armor All car a lap later and began to reel in McMahan. Schatz briefly took over the lead on lap 12 before taking it over for good on lap 16.

As McMahan faded through the waning laps of the first feature, Kerry Madsen charged forward, trying to catch Schatz. He had one last shot following an open red with three to go, but he wasn't able to close the gap.

Schatz said that his success at Lernerville Speedway comes in part from the fact that track fits his driving style.

"The surface has always been great here," Schatz said. "It's tough to get hold of. You have to have some finesse but yet be aggressive. That fits me."

Madsen's second place finish was his eighth straight podium finish. He won the Kings Royal last weekend at Eldora Speedway.

Cody Darrah won the second feature of the night, his first win at Lernerville and his second Outlaws win of the season. Darrah finished the first feature in 17th and through the inversion, started from the pole for the second.

As the green flag flew, the Pennsylvania Posse's Danny Dietrich jumped out to an early lead. For the first ten laps, Darrah looked for a way around Dietrich in Ollie's Bargain Outlet car and finally found it. Darrah took the lead on lap 11 and never looked back. As the two battled through lapped cars, Dietrich looked for opportunities and closed the gap several times, but was not able to make a move.

"[Getting the win] feels awesome," Darrah said. "The way this race plays out doing the full invert, that's the biggest thing that gets you into that second race to get you up front. I'd like to say I was sandbagging the first one but honestly I was racing as hard as I could for that last spot. We worked on our cars, we went off our teammates to capitalize on that front row spot."

Schatz finished seventh in the second feature, taking home the KSE Hard Charger Award after advancing ten positions through the field.

As the Outlaws continue their swing through Pennsylvania, the stiff competition presented by the Posse showed up Tuesday night at Lernerville. In addition to Dietrich, Tim Shaffer, a native of Aliquippa, Pa. finished third in the second feature.

"It's just a real good feeling to come out here and run second. I thought we had a fast car, fast enough to win. It just wasn't our night," Dietrich said. The driver of the Sandoes Fruit Market/Hickory Run Orchards car said he and his team will go fix some of the problems they had tonight and hope to take him wins at Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway in the coming days.

Schatz added slightly to his lead in the race for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Championship. He now has an 80 point lead on second place Daryn Pittman and a 99 point lead on third place Paul McMahan.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Pennsylvania this week, stopping next at Lincoln Speedway on Thursday before two nights, Friday and Saturday, at Williams Grove Speedway for the Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

LERNERVILLE SPEEDWAY NOTES:
Tonight's win was Donny Schatz's ninth win of the season and his fifth Silver Cup… David Gravel, Paul McMahan, Kerry Madsen and Jason Sides all won their heat races at Lernerville Speedway… Brad Sweet took the quick time of the night… Donny Schatz received his tenth KSE Hard Charger Award of the season Tuesday night, the most of any driver... Kerry Madsen scored his eighth podium finish in a row with his second place finish in the first feature.

With the ‘Month of Money’ Now Underway, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Swings Through Pennsylvania

Kerry Madsen carries momentum from Kings Royal win into month as the Outlaws battle the Posse

CONCORD, N.C. - July 14, 2014 -
The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series rolls into Pennsylvania this week for a three event swing. As the Outlaws return to battle the Pennsylvania Posse, Kerry Madsen looks to carry the momentum from his emotional victory at the Kings Royal.

The Outlaws take on Lernerville Speedway on Tuesday night for the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup. After that, they head to Lincoln Speedway Thursday and Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday night for the Summer Nationals.

Madsen, who scored his seventh straight podium finish with his win at the Kings Royal, said the competition in Pennsylvania is like few other places.

"Look, Pennsylvania is extremely difficult," said Madsen, a St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia native. "A lot of cars, track changes, a lot of speed in qualifying - you don't know where you're going to end up… you've got to be realistic. If you go to P.A., Williams Grove and bang out a couple of top-tens, mission accomplished."

As for the 'Month of Money,' Madsen said he and his American Racing Custom Wheels team have a lot of confidence.

"The guys have been giving me such good race cars," Madsen said. "We have a ridiculous number of podiums in a row which is fantastic. That's good cars - that's not me driving stupendously every night. It's funny, the better racecar you have, the more conservatively you can drive. All of a sudden you're bringing it home every night and you've just got confidence."

Following the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series swing through Pennsylvania, the Outlaws move to New York for events at Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway.

Eldora Speedway Crowns King Kerry the 31st at Kings Royal

Kerry Madsen scores his first Kings Royal victory, his seventh podium finish in a row and his fourth win of the season

ROSSBURG, Ohio - July 12, 2014 -
Kerry Madsen did something Saturday night few before him have ever done - he won the Kings Royal, one of the most coveted prizes on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series schedule, and the right to be called 'King.'

In front of a packed Eldora Speedway, the newly crowned 'King Kerry' was emotional and at times speechless in victory lane as he thanked the fans, his team owners, crew members and sponsors.

"I just want to thank Eldora Speedway for just letting me be part of this fantastic race," Madsen said. "I moved over from Australia and this is pretty much the race that hooked me on American racing."

Madsen, who started seventh, took over the lead from David Gravel on lap 13.

"I got an awesome run," Madsen said. "David and Donny were kind of battling there and it just left the topside open. I had the wing kind of in the trunk and the thing just sat down there and rolled around that corner wide open and we just pulled it off. We got a lot of momentum and track position after that."

As the laps ticked by, Madsen built an impressive lead in his American Racing Custom Wheels car, maneuvering through lapped traffic and holding off challenges from Schatz and Gravel. A caution on the last lap presented Madsen with one final obstacle.

"I was just really, really trying to hold my concentration in the last ten laps," Madsen said. "Just stay motivated and hit my marks and I have to admit I started counting the laps down when there was five to go. Backed the pace down, brought her a little away from the wall. And the white flag lap I thought we have a shot here and then, what do you know, the yellow comes out."

After coming so close to winning the famed event in years past, Madsen was focused on the competition behind him and keeping them there.

"When you have a champion like Donny behind you, you know you can't make a mistake… and obviously David was strong all weekend and he was going to be a presence at some point as well," Madsen said. "Fortunately for me, [my team] gave me that good a car that it just did its own thing anyways."

This was Madsen's third Outlaws win at the track. The win for the St. Marys, New South Wales, Australia native also makes him the first Australian to win the Kings Royal. This was the seventh podium finish in a row for Madsen and his fourth win of the season.

As the green flag flew to start the race, pole sitter David Gravel jumped out to an early lead in the Kings Royal over second place starter Donny Schatz. The two battled early, with Schatz eventually taking over the lead on lap nine after he closed the gap on Gravel and slid past out of turn four.

Meanwhile, Madsen, who started seventh, was working his way through the field. He found a fast line high near the wall and following a restart 11 laps in, Madsen used that speed to power past Schatz as Gravel took the lead back over.

Just one lap later, Madsen passed Gravel for first. It was not however smooth sailing for Madsen as he faced three cautions and subsequent restarts. Each time, Madsen maintained his lead, holding Schatz and Gravel back.

A caution that flew on lap 38 eventually turned onto an open red after the Outlaws had reached max laps. Madsen again faced the challenge of maintaining what he had built on the restart. Schatz and Gravel gave one last try at finding a way around Madsen on the green-white-checkered, but it was not to be. Madsen won Kings Royal.

Second place finisher Schatz said he's not sure whether the restarts hurt or helped his STP/Armor All team but said a changing racetrack affected his night.

"Kerry was definitely a better racecar," Schatz said. "He got up there and went and was awful fast. When he got there it was hard to even keep up with him. Hats off to those guys, they did a phenomenal job. He's been knocking at the door of this race for a long time so I'm glad to see him win it."

"The STP guys did an awesome job - second was the best we could do tonight. All you can do is build on it. We get to race again on Tuesday and try to get ourselves a little better spot."

Gravel, who finished the night in third in his Roth Motorsports car after leading ten laps, including the first eight, congratulated Madsen's crew chief Tyler Swank, who served in the same role with Gravel in previous seasons.

"I know starting on the pole we wanted to win there but to get on the podium my second Kings Royal that I made was pretty good," Gravel said. "Eldora treats me awesome. All you fans here, I don't know how many are there, but you guys are awesome."

"I thought the race was coming towards me with the lapped traffic but that's the way it goes. We're going to be happy for the rest of the 'Month of Money'."

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to Pennsylvania next week for a four race swing that will take them to Lernerville Speedway, Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.

ELDORA SPEEDWAY NOTES:
Kerry Madsen scored his seventh podium finish in a row and his fourth win of the season… David Gravel, Donny Schatz and Kerry Madsen all led laps tonight… In addition to winning the feature, Kerry Madsen also had the quick time.

Sammy Swindell Overcomes Recent Bad Luck, Wins Knight Before the Kings Royal

Earns 294th career win and second of the season; bests non-Outlaw Tim Shaffer

ROSSBURG, Ohio - July 11, 2014 -
After a string of near wins and some bad luck, three-time champion Sammy Swindell forged ahead Friday night, pushing back a challenge from non-Outlaw Tim Shaffer and winning the Knight Before the Kings Royal, his second World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series win of the season.

"It's great - after the year we've had… We've been right there the last few races, just couldn't pull it off at the end and tonight the car just got better and better," Swindell said. "The Big Game Treestands car and team did an awesome job."

Swindell has led at least part of three of the last four races - including the last Outlaws event at the Brad Doty Classic at Limaland Motorsports Park, where he dominated early but fell off toward the end of the event. At the first night of the Boot Hill Showdown in Dodge City, Kan., Swindell picked up the pole for the A main, but had his night ended in the first turn of the first lap, after Paul McMahan made contact with him and Swindell flipped.

Friday night at Eldora, Swindell put all of that behind him.

Shaffer, who sat on the pole, jumped out to an early and dominate lead after a short battle with Swindell to begin the A main.

"We were a little bit too tight at the start, let Shaffer get away," Swindell said.

By lap five, Shaffer hit the first lapped traffic in his Canton Electric car but pushed through undeterred. Swindell however was in hot pursuit and by lap 13 had caught Shaffer. Swindell made the pass in his Big Game Treestands car through turns three and four and drag raced Shaffer into one and two. By the time the two cars hit the backstretch, Swindell firmly had the lead.

"Once I got in the front I was just trying to pace myself," Swindell said. "I didn't hear anybody or see anybody - I was just running some nice laps and then trying to keep the car under me."

The first yellow flag in what would become a series in the middle of the feature fell on lap 16 after Joey Saldana's right rear tire shredded. Once the green flag again flew, only two laps passed before contact between fourth-place Kerry Madsen and fifth-place David Gravel left Gravel at the bottom of the front stretch. Another short green with 18 complete, ended before the first lap could be completed with Brandon Wimmer on his roof after flipping.

The green flag flew for the final time with 18 complete. The final 12 laps saw battles between Kerry Madsen and Jac Haudenschild, and Madsen and Pittman, as Shaffer looked for one last chance.

Swindell took the checkered flag, scoring his 36th all-time win at Eldora.

"It was really awesome here tonight… Everything fell in place," Swindell said. "If we can keep that up, we might win a couple more."

Shaffer, who was pulling double duty Friday night, competing with the Outlaws and in a separate 360 sprint car, said running as well as he did felt great.

"I screwed up in lapped traffic," Shaffer said. "I got there and I got my timing wrong. I was trying too early and I know better. Hopefully we learned a few things for tomorrow. It feels great to be up there in second."

In victory lane, Swindell thanked his supporters.

"I've just got to thank everyone that's been helping me and been behind me - all the guys, Pete and Tony; my wife Amy," Swindell said. "Everybody knows that helps me."

In the midst of all the excitement, two people Swindell forgot to thank were his longtime team owners Tod and Lisa Quiring. Swindell often credits the Quirings as his biggest and most strident supporters.

Swindell heads into the Kings Royal on Saturday night as a three-time winner of the event and looks to become the first winner of both the 'Knight Before' and the Kings Royal since 20-time champion Steve Kinser did it in 2003.

Kerry Madsen drove his American Racing Custom Wheels car to a third place finish - his sixth podium finish in a row. He said he had a really good car all night, but struggled on the restarts. Tempers flared on track and off between Madsen and Gravel, and Madsen and Pittman in the closing laps as the three drivers battled for position.

"There at the end of that run I had a quicker car than the two cars ahead but there really wasn't much I could do unless they made a mistake in front," Madsen said. "And then when someone made a mistake you had to commit to it and go for it - that's part of racing at Eldora."

"Just trying to bring it home every night - that was a tough battle."

The battle for the championship continues to tighten as Donny Schatz's points lead shrunk again over Pittman to 66. Paul McMahan remains in third, 85 points out of the lead.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series returns to Eldora Speedway Saturday night for the Kings Royal. The Outlaws return to Pennsylvania next week for a four race swing that will take them to Lernerville Speedway, Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway.

ELDORA SPEEDWAY NOTES:
Sammy Swindell notched his 294th career World of Outlaws STP Sprint Series win… Joey Saldana scored his 17th quick time of the season… This was Kerry Madsen's sixth podium finish in a row…
