Pair of World Finals podiums not enough; Schatz finishes four points short of Brad Sweet for 2019 WoO championship

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, November 7th-9th
Event: World of Outlaws World Finals
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: The Dirt Track at Charlotte (Concord, North Carolina)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 2nd (6th)
Saturday: 3rd (8th)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings (FINAL): 2nd – 9994 points (four points behind Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 11, 2019) – Despite ending his 2019 World Finals weekend on an impressive and consistent note, earning back-to-back podium performances at The Dirt Track at Charlotte including a runner-up finish to kick-off the weekend on Friday, November 8, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz finished just shy of the ultimate goal and missed attaining an eleventh World of Outlaws championship by four points – the closest championship finish in Series history.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, finished second and third during his World Finals starts, rallying ahead from sixth to finish second on Friday, followed by a hard-fought battle to third from eighth on Saturday. Considering the championship margin was two points entering the final night of competition at The Dirt Track, Schatz needed to finish at least two positions ahead of championship contender, Brad Sweet, during Saturday’s A-Main to clinch the overall title; Sweet finished second.

“We dug everything we could. I drove it as hard as I could,” Schatz said. “Andy Durham, who built this engine did a great job. He told me earlier tonight, ‘Just run it. Pretend that there’s a fan blade there and you’re trying to trim your toenails.’ I did that. It just wasn’t good enough.”

Not going down without a fight, Schatz did everything he could to find speed during the 30-lap feature program on Saturday, and at one point, drove by Sweet to earn the championship advantage. Unfortunately for Schatz, a slip up the race track while exiting turn four gave Sweet an opening to get back by the ten-time champion.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing concluded their 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season with a head-turning 65 top-ten feature finishes in 72 feature starts, 48 of which resulting in finishes inside the top-five. In addition, Schatz captured 11 feature victories in 2019, most recently at the ‘Speed Palace’ that is Port Royal Speedway.

Brent Marks caps 2019 World of Outlaws campaign 13th at The Dirt Track at Charlotte

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (November 11, 2019) – It was a long, grueling road for Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks, but the journey is now complete, officially concluding his 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a 13th place performance during the annual World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. 

Marks, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car, had to earn his World Finals highlight the hard way, eventually forced to utilize a World of Outlaws provisional starting position to line-up 26th on Saturday’s main event grid. 

In 30 circuits, Marks advanced 13 positions, a feat he has been able to accomplish on multiple occasions in 2019. In fact, Marks earned a Series-leading seven KSE Hard Charger Awards in 2019, an award given to the driver who advances the most feature positions during every World of Outlaws program. 

“What a season. It’s pretty tough to comprehend that it’s over already,” Brent Marks said, who earned one World of Outlaws victory in 2019: the $65,000 National Open at Williams Grove Speedway. “I think we were fast enough to work our way toward a top-ten on Saturday night. But, we’ll take what we earned and move forward. It was a fun season. All of my partners, my team, and my family make a dream like possible. I can’t wait until next year.”

In addition to his $65,000 National Open triumph, Marks earned 24 other top-ten performances with the Greatest Show On Dirt this season, six of them inside the top-five.

Dietrich experiences tough luck in Charlotte; Potential BAPS visit on deck

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (November 11, 2019) – Although his 2019 World Finals campaign was engulfed with bad luck and frustrating results, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich made the most of his visit to The Dirt Track at Charlotte and concluded the three-day World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series finale with one main event start, missing a second by a pair of Last Chance Showdown (LCS) positions. The 14-time feature winner in 2019 highlighted all World Finals results with a 20th place feature score on Saturday, November 9.

Despite an eighth place outing in Friday’s Last Chance Showdown, ultimately missing main event competition, Dietrich put on an impressive display to get to that position; winning the evening’s C-main before rallying from 17th in the LCS. A mechanical misfortune during his respective heat race was the evening’s overall catalyst. 

“The last two months have not been kind to us. If it weren’t for bad luck, we would have no luck at all. We’re ready for this chapter to be over,” Danny Dietrich explained, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “Regardless, it was a great season for our team and I’m proud of my guys. I think we had enough potential to win three or four more races this year, but we’ll keep our heads up high and keep working hard. That’s all we can do.”

If all goes according to plan, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will make the short trip to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven on Saturday, November 16, and participate in the annaul Sprint Showdown; the final 410 sprint car race in the United States for 2019. The afternoon showstopper will award a $10,000 top prize. 

SPECIAL THANKS:
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing would like to thank all of their current marketing partners including: Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Cars, Self Made, Graver’s Garage, Racer’s New & Used Parts Warehouse, Bear Mountain Orchards, El Vista Orchards, Moritz Machine & Repair, Bream Orchard.

Michael enjoys visit to Texas Motor Speedway, looks ahead to 2020

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PLANO, Texas (November 4, 2019) – Despite his overall weekend results lacking an A-main appearance, T.J. Michael’s visit to Texas Motor Speedway for the annual Texas Sprint Car Nationals on October 31 & November 1 proved to be a worthwhile experience, ultimately facing-off against a star-studded field of sprint car racing talent comprised of 360 hotshots, as well as 410 aces. 

Not only did Michael have the opportunity to compete against some of the best sprint car drivers in the world, he did so in front of a very familiar crowd. 

“It definitely feels great to be back in Texas,” T.J. Michael said, a Plano, Texas-native who spends the majority of his racing calendar planted in Fremont, Ohio. “As you can imagine, having a race team headquartered in Ohio doesn’t leave a lot of opportunities to race in Texas, so when this event popped up on the schedule, we knew we were all in. Having the opportunity to race in front of my hometown friends and family creates a feeling like nothing else. Also, a number of our partners are from Texas, so that gave us the chance to promote their services in front of a more local audience.”

The pair of ASCS National Tour starts resulted in a pair of B-main appearances for Michael; he finished fifth during B-main competition on both nights. Forty cars were on hand for the Texas Sprint Car Nationals opener on Thursday, October 31, followed by a field of 39 for the finale on Friday, November 1. 

The event was held in conjunction with the NASCAR visit to Texas Motor Speedway.

With Michael’s 2019 schedule now complete, the ‘Texas Traveler’ will begin the tedious process of rebuilding for 2020. As years prior, Michael will build his schedule as others become available, eventually unveiling his plans after the new year. 

“We’ll take our time and get everything ready for next season,” Michael added. “Hopefully we have the opportunity to begin our year with some racing in the South. Only time will tell.” 

SPECIAL THANKS:
T.J. Michael and Michael Motorsports would like to thank all of their current marketing partners including: Advanced Architectural Stone, Crown Battery, Fremont Fence Company, Pro-Tech Services, Wood Heating and Air Conditioning, Kear’s Speed Shop, Wings Unlimited, Soul Fully Rooted, Big D’s Pizza.

Rico Abreu caps 2019 sprint car season with Tribute to Gary Patterson/SCCT victory at Stockton

Dates: Friday and Saturday, November 1st & 2nd
Event: Tribute to Gary Patterson
Series: Open, Sprint Car Challenge Tour and King of the West-NARC
Track: Stockton Dirt Track (Stockton, California)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: [Open 360] DNF
Saturday: [SCCT 360] 1st (1st)
Saturday: [KWS-NARC 410] 8th (7th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (November 4, 2019) – Although his winning streak was ultimately forced to end at six after brake issues during open 360 sprint car action at Stockton Dirt Track on November 1 cut all hope for a seventh straight trip to victory lane, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu did not allow the momentum shift to slow down his winning potential, eventually capping his two-day stint in Stockton with a Sprint Car Challenge Tour (SCCT) triumph during the Tribute to Gary Patterson on Saturday, November 2. 

The $7,000 victory, Abreu’s second of the 2019 season with the 360 sprint car series, was accomplished in convincing fashion, eventually holding off fellow California-native, Shane Golobic, during the closing circuits. Abreu, who will officially close out his 2019 sprint car season with 13 victories, now owns five Tribute to Gary Patterson trophies.

In addition to his SCCT win, Abreu finished eighth during the King of the West-NARC portion of the Gary Patterson program, kicking things off with a fourth place performance during heat race action.

“It was another great weekend for our team. I think we left a little bit on the table during the King of the West race at Stockton, but we had things right where they needed to be for the Sprint Car Challenge Tour portion. I owe that all to my team. Things have been clicking and I’m more than proud of their efforts,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Gold State Restaurant Group/Lucas Oil Products/Southern Pacific Farms/Priority Aviation/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car. “We are already looking ahead to next year. Hopefully we can keep this momentum flowing until our next start in a sprint car.”

Rico Abreu’s upcoming schedule remains uncertain. Fans are encouraged to check-in periodically via social media for further updates regarding Rico Abreu’s 2020 plans.

Tony Stewart earns podium during Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals

Dates: Thursday and Friday, October 31 & November 1
Event: Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals
Series: American Sprint Car Series (ASCS National Tour)
Track: Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track (Fort Worth, Texas)
Tony Stewart Finishes (Start):
Friday: B-Main/Did Not Start
Saturday: A-Main 3rd (3rd)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 4, 2019) – Although his Thursday night visit to Texas Motor Speedway ended short of main event competition, forced to retire during A-main qualifier action after a front wheel came apart from the car, ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing persevered in a big way and rallied to finish on the podium the following evening. 

Stewart was winning his respective A-main qualifier when the front-end trouble occurred. 

Smoke, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Toco Warranty/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car, went on to finish third during the Tony Stewart presents the Vankor Texas Sprint Car Nationals finale on Friday, November 1; he started in the exact same position.

Despite finishing two spots shy of the ultimate goal, Stewart was in a position to capitalize the entire distance, actually leading laps 20-22 before losing command to eventual winner, Scott Bogucki, on lap 23.

Sanctioned by the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS), Smoke kicked-off Friday evening with a third place finish during his respective heat race, followed by a victory during the evening’s second A-main qualifier. 

“It was great to get back to Texas,” Tony Stewart noted, a ten-time sprint car winner in 2019 who was also inducted into the Texas Motorsports Hall of Fame during the recent weekend. “I think we had the speed necessary to be competitive on Thursday, but mechanical issues happen. Lucky for me, I have a team that never gives up. We were able to pick up right where we left off.”

Tony Stewart’s upcoming plans remain uncertain. Fans should stay alert online, as well as on social media, for any updates regarding Smoke’s sprint car agenda.
