The Fargo, North Dakota racer claimed Friday’s preliminary feature and finished second in Saturday’s $25,000-to-win finale at Skagit Speedway. The results helped continue the team’s assault on the 2006 crown.
Schatz battled Craig Dollansky for the second position during most of the race and made a final lap pass of Dollansky to score his 14th second place finish of the season. Over nine races this season, Schatz has followed up a runner-up finish with a victory in the next feature event.
“We had a good weekend, but we would have liked to win both nights,” said Schatz. “The big picture looks good, but we honesty just worry about the next race. We’re disappointed things didn’t go a little differently in the feature Saturday, but it will keep all of us focused on getting back to victory lane at the next race Wednesday night.”
Schatz won the Harvest Classic Finale at Calistoga Speedway in 2005. He has a series best 14 victories (12 “A” feature and two preliminary). “We use K&N Engineering products,” said Schatz. “Our K&N Carbon Fiber Airbox helps us achieve maximum horsepower at every race.”
