Schatz Gears Up to Defend WoO Title at Volusia Speedway Park
The World of Outlaws 2006 season will go down in the record books for Donny Schatz as a career best. He claimed his first World of Outlaws title, 17 WoO A-Feature wins, 42 top five finishes, 49 top ten finishes, nine fast time awards and led 441 laps last year.

The Fargo, North Dakota racer also was named the 2006 Lucas Oil/Dirt Nation sprint car driver of the year and National Sprint Car Poll Driver of the Year. He also experienced his first Knoxville Nationals victory.

Consistency was something that we worked towards for a long time,” said Schatz. “Last year was my tenth year on the road and we used a lot of that experience to help us reach the championship. Now that we’ve earned our first championship, we’re not going to be satisfied. I feel like we’ve still got a lot of accomplish. Nothing would make me happier than winning another Outlaws title and repeating at Knoxville.”
Schatz also had a great record in the off season that included five consecutive wins in Australia, his sixth $50,000 Sprintcar International and third consecutive Outlaws Down Under Victory.
Schatz and the ParkerStore Team will continue to use a lot of the equipment that has proven to be successful during last year’s championship season. Schatz uses 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 try and stay on top of the sprint car world as the season kicks off at the 36th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Florida. Schatz and the ParkerStore Team have had good and not so good results at the half-mile dirt oval over the past two years.
In 2005, Schatz had mechanical problems and in 2006 it was a tire. “We’re pumped to get there,” he said. “I’m excited to return to a high speed race track. I’ve spent most of the winter racing in Australia on mid-range tracks. I like the higher speed tracks. Florida is one of those places where the tracks are unique because of the sand and dirt. Anything can happen. We’re going to give it our best and see what happens.”
