More than 14,000 fans watched Donny Schatz roar to victory last Friday night in
the Eckerd Outlaw Showdown at Lowe’s Motor Speedway's The Dirt Track in Concord, North
Schatz passed leader Paul McMahan with only three laps to go in his No. 15
ParkerStore with K&N Engineering Products to win his seventh feature event of
World of Outlaws Champion Uses K&N Products
“What a great job by all my guys on this ParkerStore team,” said Schatz. “The J&J
car was unbelievably good. We found the racetrack up top early on, but had a
yellow slow us down a little. Paul set a good pace and I knew after the red flag
he was going to be tough to beat. He took my line away, so I just had to figure
out another away around him. We got to traffic and made it work.”
This was a sweet victory for the defending World of Outlaws champion. “I’ve
wanted to win here again for quite some time after winning back in 2000,” said
Schatz. “We are fortunate to work with such great product sponsors and without
them we wouldn’t be here. 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
with every one of your components.”
Schatz also finished a demanding seven-race eastern swing in New York on Monday
night with a third place finish at Rolling Wheels Raceway. He continues to lead
the series in points.
He returns to action on Friday night at Sharon Speedway in northeast Ohio.
