“There are so many people to thank for this,” said Schatz. “It starts with people like the late Ted Johnson who built this series from scratch 29 years ago. Racers like Steve Kinser, who is the greatest sprint car driver, and the World Racing Group for keeping us headed in the right direction.”

The evening capped off a career season for the Fargo, North Dakota racer. He took his Global ParkerStore sponsored J&N with K&N Engineering products to win the World of Outlaws championship by 146 points over Joey Saldana. Schatz season included 71 top ten finishes in 75 A-feature events. He led the series in nearly every category including 19 feature wins, 467 laps led, 53 top five finishes and 12 Crane Cams Dash wins.

Schatz also made history by becoming the first driver to win five of the major races in the same season. He won all four “Month of Money” events, the Kings Royal, Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup, Williams Grove Summer Nationals and the Knoxville Nationals.

“We had a great year,” said Schatz. “We were determined to try and surpass some of the things we did last year and we were able to. Each championship is special because the paths we took to win each one was different.”

There is no time off for the 2007 champion. Schatz is in the southern hemisphere where he’ll be behind the wheel of a sprint car Friday night at Kwinana Beach, Western Australia. It’s the first round of action for the World Series Sprint Cars.

“We flew to the other side of the world and really enjoy racing there,” said Schatz. “Most of our focus is on racing in Sydney at Parramatta City Raceway.”
