Donny Schatz learned the fundamentals of becoming a WoO champion by spending many grueling years chasing sprint car legends Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell and Mark Kinser around dirt tracks all across America. Meeting challenges head-on has been a true asset for K&N sponsored six-time WoO champion Donny Schatz. After capturing a pair of titles driving a sprint car owned by his family, Schatz made a seamless transition to driving for Tony Stewart Racing (TSR). Schatz has thrived under the spotlight of racing for three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart and continues to prove his thirst for success is far from quenched.

Not one to sit still K&N’s Donny Schatz spends the winter months in the U.S. racing sprint cars in Australia. Schatz’s success “Down Under” has been remarkable, as he’s won a number of major events both in the World Series Sprintcar tour and major events at Sydney Speedway, Supercheap Auto Archerfield Speedway in Brisbane and at Premier Speedway in Warrnambool. As a result, Donny Schatz has earned quite a following in Australia. Additionally, Schatz has expanded his stateside racing to also include Dirt Late Model competition.

Recently, Donny Schatz was informally inducted into an elite group among World of Outlaw racers. Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing’s Donny Schatz scored his 200th career World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory at Grays Harbor Raceway on Monday, September 7, 2015. Donny Schatz is only the third driver in World of Outlaw Sprint Series history to earn 200 career WoO victories. Arguably Schatz is still at, or near, the peak of his career and will most certainly continue to amass victories on the way to setting additional records.

Schatz knows it’s not easy to win championships. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and the support of companies like K&N air filters. Schatz said, “You win championships by never giving up and working for everything you get. My guys work hard to give me a race car this good. Our K&N Engineering Carbon Fiber Air Box helps us achieve maximum horsepower at every race.” Find vehicle specific K&N products using the K&N Application Search, or browse K&N’s extensive offering of performance parts and racing products at KNFilters.com.
