SCHATZ FINISHES 11TH AT LAWRENCEBURG
LAWRENCEBURG, IN (May 28, 2012) – Donny Schatz was hoping to make it two straight wins at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway on Monday night. He won the Outlaws last stop on the 3/8-mile high banks back in the summer of 2009 and was coming off an impressive run in Charlotte. Unfortunately, things didn’t get started well and Schatz did his best to close the night with an 11th-place finish.
Qualifying 19th in the field of 34 cars was not the way the four-time WoO champion wanted to begin the evening. During the third heat, he blew a right-front tire on the Tony Stewart Racing No. 15 STP/Armor All/Chevrolet J&J. His STP crew replaced the tire and he stormed back from eighth to finish third. One more caution may have changed the entire evening, but the yellow never waived and he transferred him into the 35-lap A-Feature.
