The World of Outlaws (WoO) season continues to unfold with Donny Schatz and his ParkerStore No.15 J&J with Shaver power. Schatz leads the WoO series in several categories including the point standings, victories and second place finishes.

The Fargo, North Dakota racer claimed Friday’s preliminary feature and finished second in Saturday’s $25,000-to-win finale at Skagit Speedway. The results helped continue the team’s assault on the 2006 crown.

“On Friday night, Schatz earned the pole position and led the final 29 laps of the 30-lap race. That finish locked the ParkerStore No.15 into Saturday’s Dash event, which set the first five rows of Saturday’s feature event. Schatz took victory in the Dash event and led 24 cars to the green flag for the feature event.

Schatz battled Craig Dollansky for the second position during most of the race and made a final lap pass of Dollansky to score his 14th second place finish of the season. Over nine races this season, Schatz has followed up a runner-up finish with a victory in the next feature event.

“We had a good weekend, but we would have liked to win both nights,” said Schatz. “The big picture looks good, but we honesty just worry about the next race. We’re disappointed things didn’t go a little differently in the feature Saturday, but it will keep all of us focused on getting back to victory lane at the next race Wednesday night.”

Schatz will have a one-night program at Southern Oregon Speedway near Medford, Oregon. He has raced this track three times in his career. “We always enjoy this swing racing in Washington and Oregon before heading to Calistoga,” Schatz said. “The stress level of everyone seems to come down a little bit and we can get back to racing and having some fun.”

Schatz won the Harvest Classic Finale at Calistoga Speedway in 2005. He has a series best 14 victories (12 “A” feature and two preliminary). “We use K&N Engineering products,” said Schatz. “Our K&N Carbon Fiber Airbox helps us achieve maximum horsepower at every race.”
