SCHATZ EYES RETURN TO OHIO

Tony Stewart Racing Duo Set To Kick Off Outlaws’ Month of Money in Royal Style

INDIANAPOLIS (July 10, 2012) – Performing in the clutch is a common characteristic of most champions.

SECOND-BEST AT BEAVER DAM

BACK ON THE PODIUM AT BEAVER DAM

BEAVER DAM, WI (July 7) – Maybe a couple of more laps would have made a difference or maybe not. After 40 laps, Donny Schatz was within a few car lengths of winning a World of Outlaws (WoO) A-Feature and that was a positive.

“We gave it everything we had,” said Schatz, following the race. “Kraig was setting a pretty good pace and once we got by Steve I had nothing to lose. The STP car was really good. It just kept getting better and better. Hopefully, we can build on this and keep it going at the Brad Doty Classic and the Kings Royal.”

BRANDON, S.D. (July 4) – The World of Outlaws (WoO) annual return to Huset’s Speedway near Sioux Falls, S.D. always seems to be filled with fireworks.

SCHATZ SIXTH ON HIGH BANKS

SCHATZ SIXTH IN BELLEVILLE RETURN

BELLEVILLE, KAN. (June 29) – The famous high banks of Belleville hosted the World of Outlaws for the second straight season on Friday night. For Donny Schatz, it was another consistent night and one more top-10 finish. Consistency is fine, but consistently being up front and challenging for wins is what the expectations are.

It’s been that type of season so far for Schatz, who has led the point standings on six different occasions despite only scoring three wins. The other remarkable fact is that Schatz has only qualified inside the top-five three times during the first 32 races of 2012. He qualified 10th in the field of 24 cars behind the wheel of the Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) No. 15 STP/Armor All/Chevrolet J&J and started on the pole of the opening heat race.

Tony Stewart Racing Continues Championship Chase Through Kansas

INDIANAPOLIS (June 28, 2012) – Through the first five months of the 2012 World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series season, the nightly results have been anything but predictable.

Kinser and Schatz will continue his battle for Outlaw supremacy this weekend through middle America with stops at the Belleville (Kan.) High Banks and Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
