World of Outlaws Points Leader's Breaks Out to Win

Donny Schatz picked up his 15th win (13th A-Feature, 2 preliminary) on September 15th during the World of Outlaws 1/3-Mile Nationals at Eagle Raceway. Schatz started the 15th spot in his ParkerStore No.15 J&J with Shaver power.

The current World of Outlaws leader worked his way into contention in the 40-lap feature event. Brooke Tatnell led the race from the start but two late cautions allowed Schatz to gain track position. This set up the final four lap shootout.

When the race resumed on lap 37, Schatz pulled even with Tatnell heading through turns one and two for the lead on the next lap. Schatz ran the low line and Tatnell tried to charge around the top, but Schatz crossed under the checkered flag first.

“That was as much fun as I have had all year,” said Schatz. “This feels awesome to be back in victory lane. What a great race, but I’m getting too old to be trying to come from the back like that. We needed this.”

Schatz entered the race just east of Lincoln, Nebraska to get some revenge. He said he felt like he let a victory get away from him in June during the Eagle Nationals.

“We should have won in June, but we had a little problem with our right rear tire,” said Schatz. “I feel like I’ve got the best crew out there. My guys worked hard to give me a racecar this good. Our K&N Engineering Carbon Fiber Airbox helps us achieve maximum horsepower at every race.”

The ParkerStore Team is headed to Jackson, Minnesota for the next big event.
