World of Outlaws Donny Schatz Voted 2006 Driver of the Year
World of Outlaws (WoO) Points Champion Donny Schatz was voted 2006 “Driver of the Year” by the North American 410 Sprint Car Poll.
Schatz earned 25 of the 28 first place ballots cast in the year-end poll. His car owners and parents, Danny and Diane Schatz, also received the 2006 “Team of the Year” award for the first time.

Donny Schatz voted Driver of the Year
The voting panel agreed that the Fargo, North Dakota resident earned his new title because of 21 wins, his WoO Championship, and the fact that he beat the best drivers in competition at the Knoxville Sprint Car Nationals.
“We are truly honored by being voted the best driver and team of the year by the National Sprint Car Poll,” said Schatz. “The great part about our season is that we worked hard to win as many races as we could and figured everything else would take care of itself. I have to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to chase a dream. My crew also did a great job giving me a great car all year long.”

Schatz and his ParkerStore Team use K&N Engineering Products. “We are fortunate to work with such great product sponsors,” said Schatz. “The folks at K&N Engineering build a Carbon Airbox that is second to none. When you are racing, you have to be totally confident in all of your components.”
The 2006 season was a career-best for Schatz. He began in Australia winning eight of his first nine starts. His championship chase began in February in Florida and concluded in late October in Las Vegas, Nevada. Schatz and his No. 15 ParkerStore J&J led nearly every WoO statistical category including his 17 “A” Feature victories, 42 top-five finishes, 9 fast-times, 2 track records, 441 laps led, 8 dash wins and $372,415 in race earnings.
Schatz is also a finalist for the Economaki Champion of Champions. The winner will be announced this week at the annual Performance Racing Industry Trade Show in Orlando, Florida.
Schatz returns to Australia in late December to begin a 10-race campaign at Parramatta City Raceway near Sydney. He will begin defending his WoO Championship on February 9th at Volusia Speedway Park near Daytona, Florida.
