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.”
