BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 24, 2019) – With Mother Nature erasing all hope for competition on Sunday night at Dubuque Speedway in Dubuque, Iowa, it was a one stop weekend for ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, joining the Greatest Show On Dirt at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis., on Saturday, June 22.
Despite an abrasive racing surface ultimately limiting activity during the later stages of the World of Outlaws main event, Schatz held strong and finished seventh, bumping his 2019 top-ten total to 25. Impressive enough, Schatz’ 25 top-ten appearances occurred during 29 World of Outlaws starts.
Although settling for seventh at the final checkers, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, was battling as high as fourth in the running order before fading just outside of the top five.
“Not exactly the weekend we were looking for. I think the speed is there, we just need to capitalize,” Donny Schatz expressed following his Beaver Dam results. “We have a big weekend coming up. We know our way around Jackson Motorplex. We proved that last year. I think if we can put all of the pieces together early in the weekend, we’ll be up front on Saturday night.”
Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will venture to the Land of 10,000 Lakes, aiming for big money that will be up for grabs during a three-day stay at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota. The three-day Jackson Nationals program will award $10,000 top prizes on Thursday and Friday, June 27 & 28, all of which capped off with a $41,000-to-win main event on Saturday, June 29. Donny Schatz is the defending Jackson Nationals champion, scoring $40,000 during the 2018 edition.
