Racing has been a family affair for Donny Schatz from the time he climbed into a sprint car for the first time at the age of 15 at the Grand Forks Speedway which Danny got lined up for him.  It is no secret that  Donny’s passion for racing stems from his father, Danny, who raced regionally around North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Thunder Bay, Ontario in the 1970s.
