Schatz blazed through 54 cars of lapped traffic while fellow Outlaw racers Daryn Pittman and Steve Kinser battled for the runner-up spot. The action slowed down a few times but Schatz stayed in command throughout the race and was followed to the checkered flag by Kinser then Pittman.

“We’re off to a good start,” said Schatz. “We try to get better every time we hit the track.”
