A fifth-place finish during heat race action forced Schatz to compete in the 12-lap B; he started third.
The ten-time champ and former Gold Cup champ kicked-off his Gold Cup Race of Champions effort with an 11th-place finish in Friday’s preliminary round. A runner-up result during heat race competition secured his place in the preliminary main event.
