“I’m really looking forward to racing some more as our schedule picks up over the next few weeks,” said Schatz. “But I’m more excited that we’re headed to Eldora. It’s one of those places where we haven’t been real stellar in the past, but last year we had real good finishes. We were just one spot short of first place both times. I think we may finally have things figured out there, but it’s been quite a challenge for us to get to that point.”

Even though Schatz admits to having a tough time at the track, he’s been a consistent top ten finisher at Eldora Speedway since 1996. That consistency carried over to the 2007 campaign, where he finished in the top six 11 times in 12 starts. He has three victories and nine top three finishes and is 12 points behind leader Joey Saldana.

Schatz and the ParkerStore Team use K&N Engineering products. “The K&N Airbox works flawlessly for us at each race,” he said. “We are able to attain maximum horsepower. K&N builds a superior product.”

Saturday’s race at the track will be the first televised World of Outlaws race of 2007. SPEED TV and ESPN2 will carry the programming. “It provides great exposure for our sponsors,” said Schatz. “The television schedule includes races at some of the most exciting tracks in the country. It should help attract new fans and help the sport.”

Cold weather slowed the team down last weekend and forced the cancellation of last Saturday's race at Pevely, MO. "If you look at Eldora's races in April over the past ten years, we haven't always been able to race both nights," said Schatz. "We've had snow and rain stop shows in the past. We're hoping the weather warms up so we can work in the track enough to have a surface that offers plenty of passing and action in order to put on a good show."
