Schatz leaves Arizona with pair of fourths, Hard Charger Award at Arizona Speedway

BROWNSBURG, IND – Continuing a trend of consistency that has now surpassed everyone on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series trail, earning 11 top-ten finishes in 11 Series starts, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz left Arizona with back-to-back fourth place finishes during main event competition, the second being the result of a hard charge from row seven.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, kicked off his weekend with a visit to USA Raceway near Tucson on Friday, April 5. A narrow, but ultra-fast racing surface made passing a premium, thus making it difficult for Schatz to recover after fading to fourth from the pole position during the initial start. Despite countless attempts to rebound, fourth is where Schatz stayed. Although not ending his evening on top, Schatz was near-flawless during preliminary competition, ultimately earning victories during his respective heat race and the evening’s dash.

Despite the end-result being identical, Schatz’ performance at Arizona Speedway on Saturday, April 6, to attain the fourth place finish was more than impressive, rallying from the inside of row seven to do so. In addition, Schatz earned the evening’s Hard Charger Award for advancing the most positions during feature competition.

“We experienced a little bit of everything this weekend in Arizona. Friday’s result was a little tough to swallow considering we started on the pole, but it is what it is,” Donny Schatz expressed. “It was a fun stretch on the West Coast, but I think we’re ready to head back east.”

Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will visit Devil’s Bowl Speedway near Mesquite, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, April 12 & 13. Schatz will enter Texas Outlaw Nationals weekend second in the current World of Outlaws championship standings, trailing Brad Sweet by a mere-four markers.

Schatz is the defending Texas Outlaw Nationals finale winner at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, scoring the $20,000 payday from the inside of row three on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
