By Gary Thomas
Stockton, CA – February 14, 2017…The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series season officially kicks-off this weekend at Volusia Speedway Park in Florida, where Donny Schatz opens his title defense looking to bring home a ninth career series title. Schatz and the rest of the Outlaws will tackle the Stockton Dirt Track in just over one month’s time on Friday & Saturday March 24 & 25 in the FVP Western Spring Shootout.
After narrowly missing out on a victory in 2014 the Fargo, North Dakota veteran has captured three of the last four World of Outlaws events held at the Stockton Dirt Track, including a two-night sweep last season. Schatz passed Grain Valley, Missouri’s Brian Brown midway through the feature on opening night and made a late pass of Brownsburg, Indiana’s Joey Saldana during the finale en route to the sweep. He hopes to continue the dominance in March at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds based facility.
Schatz raced to a stellar 25 overall wins with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series last year and captured the title by a massive 314-points. Included in those triumphs were the prestigious Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway, the Brad Doty Classic at Attica Raceway Park and the Bad Boy World Finals in Charlotte. Schatz will be gunning to have another strong year in 2017 aboard the Tony Stewart Racing/ Arctic Cat No. 15 machine. read more
