SCHATZ EIGHTH IN EMPIRE STATE RETURN
ELBRIDGE, NY (May 16) – If Donny Schatz was looking for a positive following Wednesday night’s World of Outlaws return to Rolling Wheels Raceway, it would be that he made it through the opening lap. That wasn’t the case last fall when an opening-lap crash took out the TSR No. 15 STP/Armor All/Chevrolet J&J.
Schatz returned to the big 5/8-mile dirt oval and ultimately finished eighth. The four-time WoO champion was running sixth prior to a lap 23 restart and being on the bottom line was the favorable position. Cody Darrah and Sammy Swindell slipped by dropping him to eighth in the 25-lap A-Feature.
