BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 13, 2021) – Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, may have missed the top-ten during Gold Cup Race of Champions preliminary competition on Friday, but the Fargo, North Dakota-native prevailed on Saturday during the two-day finale and cashed in for a top-five performance, ultimately advancing five spots to finish fourth amongst the best that the Outlaws and California had to offer.
Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, kicked-off Saturday evening with a third-place finish during heat race competition sending the former Gold Cup champion directly to the A-Main.
Schatz’ Friday result was a 13th-place score after starting 22nd, forced to compete and eventually transfer through the evening’s Last Chance Showdown after timing near the back of the 33-car field.
Keller Auto Speedway’s Tom Tarlton Classic will hit high gear for the Greatest Show On Dirt on Saturday, September 18, and will award a $21,000 payday. In addition, the visit to Hanford, California, will conclude the 2021 World of Outlaws West Coast Swing.
