BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 5, 2022) – Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing turned a pair of Cedar Lake Speedway starts into a pair of top-ten finishes, highlighting the facility’s two-day Independence Day Spectacular featuring the Greatest Show On Dirt with a fourth-place score in the weekend’s preliminary on Friday, July 1. A respectable score, nonetheless, Schatz was on pace for victory before settling into fourth, leading laps three through 21 before losing control to Shark Racing’s Jacob Allen.
Starting alongside Schatz on the front row, Jason Johnson Racing’s Carson Macedo earned the initial jump, maintaining command until Schatz returned the favor after a lap three restart. The ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion maintained the point until the aforementioned move by Allen, losing spots to Brad Sweet and Sheldon Haudenschild shortly thereafter.
In an emotional drive to win for his late father, Danny Schatz, Donny Schatz would go on to finish seventh in the Cedar Lake Speedway finale on Saturday, July 2, actually pressuring for a podium spot before losing a few positions in the closing laps; Schatz started sixth.
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with another double in the Midwest, this time taking on the highbanks of 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 8, followed by a stop at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Saturday, July 9.
