BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 22, 2022) – Ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion and recently crowned Knoxville Nationals champion, Donny Schatz, put together a sound performance in the 2022 Jackson Nationals at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, not only attaining back-to-back top-ten finishes including a top-five during preliminary competition, but the Fargo, North Dakota, native was forced to complete the task in the same day.
Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, No. 15 sprint car, finished fourth and sixth, respectively, in the Saturday Jackson Nationals doubleheader, obligated to compete in the double program after Mother Nature spoiled previously scheduled Thursday and Friday preliminary events. Friday’s portion was ultimately moved to Saturday afternoon, followed by the $25,000-to-win finale.
Battling back and forth in both of the Jackson Nationals programs, afternoon preliminary competition would see Schatz fade to fifth before driving ahead to third. Jacob Allen and Sheldon Haudenschild would ultimately slip by Schatz to force the ten-time Series champion back to fifth again, but Schatz drove back by Haudenschild shortly thereafter.
Schatz faded to eighth at one point in the weekend finale before recovering to cross the line sixth.
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with the second leg of the Northern Tour, visiting River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, North Dakota, on Friday, August 26, and Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, North Dakota, on Saturday, August 27.
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewat/Curb-Agajanian Racing would like to thank all of their marketing partners: Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts.
