BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 19, 2022) – Although in a prime position to pad his 2022 stat sheet, a turn four miscue ended Schatz’ campaign at Keller Auto Speedway on Friday, September 16, forcing the Fargo native to settle for 23rd on the scorecard after hard contact with the outside retaining wall sent the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion pit side. Schatz was battling for a top-five outcome at the time of the incident, getting to second early while racing head-to-head with Justin Sanders, Brad Sweet, Logan Schuchart, and Jacob Allen.
Despite the chaotic ending to their West Coast Swing, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing are ready to move on, already setting aim on a pair of starts in the Buckeye State beginning with Eldora Speedway’s BeFour the Crowns Showdown on Friday, September 16. Certainly no stranger to the highbanks of Eldora Speedway, Schatz has won five Kings Royals titles, his most recent in 2018.
Schatz will cap the coming weekend with a stop at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, September 17.
As noted, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a two-day invasion of the Buckeye State, first visiting Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, for the BeFour the Crowns Showdown on Friday, September 23, then setting aim on Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, on Saturday, September 24. Each event will award a $10,000 top prize.
