MUST SEE TV THIS WEEK FOR SCHATZ FANS
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 21, 2012) – It’s going to be a busy week of channel surfing for fans of the World of Outlaws and Donny Schatz. The four-time WoO champion will be on national television twice this week, beginning Monday night with his appearance on a episode of Outcast Kustoms and concluding with Friday night’s WoO race at Charlotte being aired live on SPEED.
Schatz will appear on Monday’s show that airs on Discovery’s Velocity TV at 9 p.m (ET). The episode features Kelvin Locklear and his crew “tricking out” an old school Peterbuilt truck and making it a special promotional hauler. Schatz is called in to help build one of his Sprint cars that will be used along with the truck for promoting the STP and Armor All brands. Schatz is joined by World Racing Group leader Brian Carter and WRG’s Brian Dunlap. The three start with a bare J&J chassis and leave the shop with a compete racecar.
Friday night, the Outlaws make their return to Charlotte and SPEED. Last November, Schatz swept the World Finals and the finale aired live on SPEED. Veteran broadcasters Ralph Shaheen and Brad Doty will call the action and be helped by Bobby Gerould and Matt Yocum from the pit area.
It’s the first of a handful of 2012 races that will be shown on SPEED.
