“This is a huge honor,” said Schatz. “To be mentioned with guys like Jimmie Johnson, Sebastien Bourdais, Dario Franchitti and Tony Schumacher is quite an honor. We did the best we could every night and had one of those unbelievable seasons. This is something I’ll never forget.”

Schatz had a career-best season winning 19 World of Outlaws features, a second WoO championship title and a second Knoxville Nationals triumph. He swept the sports “Month of Money” this past summer and won his first Kings Royal at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway. Schatz also won the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway, the Cleveland Brothers Williams Grove Summer Nationals and the Super Clean Knoxville Nationals. Later in the season Schatz won his fourth Williams Grove National Open and became the first driver to win all five of those races in the same season.

Schatz and the ParkerStore Team use K&N Engineering products at every race. “We are fortunate to work with such great product sponsors like K&N Filters,” said Schatz. “Without K&N we wouldn’t be where we are.”

Schatz will begin pursing his third World of Outlaws championship in February at the 37th annual DirtCar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Florida.
