2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd – 6122 points (8 points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 30, 2019) – Pennsylvania was kind to ten-time and defending World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz. After three events contested over a five-day period, Schatz collected three consecutive top-five finishes including a victory at Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday, July 27. The victory, Schatz’ seventh of the season during World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competition, was worth $20,000, also snapping a multi-year winless streak at the world-famous half-mile that dated back to 2015.

Schatz led all but the first ten circuits on Saturday night at Williams Grove Speedway, taking command for the first time on lap 11 after a battle with Brad Sweet. Sheldon Haudenschild attempted to execute a late-race mount to drive around Schatz, but the defending Series champion prevailed.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve stood out there holding the trophy and the flag,” Schatz said of his Williams Grove Speedway victory, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car. “Hats off to this whole Tony Stewart Racing team. They’ve been digging and it’s paying off.”

Incidentally, Schatz’ results over the five-day span improved as the week progressed, first finishing fifth during the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway on Tuesday, July 23, followed by a third place finish during the Summer Nationals preliminary at Williams Grove on Friday, July 26.

Schatz was battling as high as fourth during main event action at Lernerville, but the Fargo, North Dakota-native was forced to settle for fifth after losing a spot to championship rival, Brad Sweet, in the final corner.

Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz will continue his pursuit toward an 11th World of Outlaws championship this Friday and Saturday, August 2 & 3, at the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri. The two-day Ironman will be the main attraction at the Pevely highbanks awarding a total winner’s share equalling $28,000; $8,000 on Friday and $20,000 on Saturday. Schatz finished ninth and seventh, respectively, during the two-day Ironman in 2018.
