World of Outlaws Champ Dominates at Parramatta City Raceway near Sydney, Australia
World of Outlaws 2006 Champion Donny Schatz is on a winning streak at Tyrepower Parramatta City Raceway near Sydney, Australia. The North Dakota resident left the United States two days before Christmas. His plans are to match his results from last year’s Australian tour where he won eight of nine races.
After five nights of competition this year, Schatz is dominating the field. He took on Steve Kinser, Joey Saldana and NASCAR Nextel Cup star Kasey Kahne and won all five nights.

His latest victory was Saturday night where he continued his dominance of the Bevelite Glass $50,000 to win Sprintcar International. Schatz picked up his fourth consecutive win in the race and sixth victory in the race’s seven year history.
“It was a good night that obviously ended the way we wanted it too,” said Schatz. “I’ve been saying these $50,000 races keep getting harder and harder to win. That was the case tonight as we faced another battle.”
2006 WoO Champion Schatz dominates Australian Tour
chatz used Friday night’s victory in the opening night program to continue his winning streak and prepare for Saturday’s 40-lap feature event. He led all 30 laps aboard the No.15 Pick ‘N Payless J&J of Rush Racing and won the first qualifying heat on Saturday night. Schatz battled Joey Saldana in the Dash event and started the feature event third behind Saldana and Steve Kinser.
Kinser had the jump at the start and Schatz worked his way into second but took the lead on lap seven. Saldana took the lead on lap 14, but Schatz returned to the post on lap 17 and worked lapped traffic to open up a comfortable margin. He maintained the lead to the
checkered flag ahead of Saldana, Peter Murphy, Jason Meyers and Kinser.
“We won opening night on Friday and felt like we had a pretty good handle on things, but the track was different than we thought it would be on Saturday,” said Schatz. “It ended up taking rubber so it came down to being smart. We had a softer tire on than Joey did and I pushed the envelope a little bit there during the middle stages of the race. I knew saving my tires and being steady would win the race.”
Schatz and the ParkerStore Team use K&N Engineering products. “The K&N Airbox works flawlessly,” he said. “K&N builds a superior product and we are able to attain maximum horsepower.”
Schatz will be in Australia for another two weeks to compete in five more nights of action. He is hoping to continue his winning streak before returning home to begin defending his World of Outlaws championship at Volusia Speedway Park on February 9 in his No. 15 Parkerstore sponsored J&J.
