Danny Schatz Receives 2019 Ted Johnson Memorial Award

World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers presented Danny Schatz with the 2019 Ted Johnson Memorial Award for his outstanding contribution to Sprint Car racing on Sunday evening at the banquet. 

“(Danny) has been very important to me throughout my entire career with World of Outlaws,” said World Racing Group CEO, Brian Carter. “One of the first things Danny did (when I became involved with the World of Outlaws) was give a big bode of confidence to the series and the organization. He saw where it was and where it could go. That meant a lot to me being a novice in the industry 15 years ago.”

“My wife (Diane), should probably be the one who gets this,” said Danny as he took the stage to accept his award. “I really appreciate all of the things we’ve accomplished with this group. We’ve had some good times and some tough times. But there is only one way to get where you want to be and that’s to keep fighting.”

The entire Donny Schatz Motorsports team congratulates Danny on receiving this prestigious award.
