BROWNSBURG, Ind.

Schatz, a ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, finished eighth in the 10-lap affair, climbing ahead from the outside of row seven.
A fourth-place finish during qualifying heat races sealed Schatz’ position in the $10,000-to-win program.
Continuing their Central Pennsylvania invasion, Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will now set the compass for Port Royal Speedway, ready to tackle the high-paced half-mile in the annual Nittany Showdown on Friday and Saturday, October 7-8. The two-day affair will award a total winner’s share equalling $25,000; $10,000 on Friday and $15,000 on Saturday.
Schatz will enter the Juniata County Fairgrounds gates with a trio of victories on the season, one of which the aforementioned Knoxville Nationals at the world-famous Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. The Fargo, North Dakota, native remains fifth in the World of Outlaws championship standings padded by 49 top-ten finishes in 61 starts.
