Schatz second in Brad Doty Classic; Closes gap on point lead to two

Date: Tuesday, July 14th
Event: Brad Doty Classic
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Attica Raceway Park (Attica, Ohio)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 2nd (2nd)

2020 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 3034-points | second (two points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 20, 2020) – Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz put together an impressive performance on Tuesday evening at Attica Raceway Park, not only recording his 11th top-five finish of the 2020 season, but also utilizing results to cut down Brad Sweet’s lead in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings to just two markers. 

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, finished second on Tuesday night at the home of ‘Ohio’s Finest Racing,’ starting in the exact same position alongside eventual winner, Kyle Larson. Although unable to overtake the top spot, Schatz pressured Larson most of the distance, especially in periods of traffic.

Aiding Schatz’ championship points climb, current leader and defending champion, Brad Sweet, was involved in an incident at the beginning of the 40-lap program.

“There’s only one thing I can control, which is going on with this (TSR) 15 car,” Schatz said of his point status. “I can’t control what goes on with anything else. I’ve been in that position before. Things go for you and they go against you. It’s all part of the game.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their quest toward the 2020 World of Outlaws championship with a trio of Central Pennsylvania starts on Thursday through Saturday, July 23-25. Schatz will begin his Pennsylvania invasion on Thursday with a visit to the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway, followed by a Summer Nationals doubleheader at the famed-Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and Saturday, July 24-25.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (August 27, 2018) – Tony Stewart’s visit to Central Pennsylvania with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 ended in fantastic fashion, not only securing his first All Star victory of the 2018 season, his third overall, but doing so with aggressiveness, ultimately mounting an impressive charge from row three while battling some of the best young, as well as veteran, talent on the tour. By the time the dust settled on Sunday night, Stewart had accumulated two podium finishes in five feature starts, bumping his overall top-five total to 20 this season.

“That was a fun weekend. The Pennsylvania Posse are the best local talent in the country. Anytime you can come to Pennsylvania and be competitive is special. We were on a whole different level,” Tony Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car. “When you have a teammate like Donny Schatz, you’re bound to learn. I have the privilege of calling him a friend, as well as a teammate. Watching him race certainly benefits my abilities.”

Tony Stewart earned his All Star victory during action at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven on Sunday, August 26. Steadily climbing his way through the field, Smoke took control of the main event for the first time on lap 18, utilizing a lap 16 restart to work around race leader and full-time All Star traveler, Paul McMahan. The remaining circuits were distraction-free for the former three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, ultimately holding off Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley and a fast-closing Lance Dewease. It was Stewart’s first All Star triumph since dominating action at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in 2017.

Nearly visiting victory lane with the All Star Circuit of Champions prior to his visit to BAPS Motor Speedway, Smoke finished second during the second of two Jack Gunn Memorial main events at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 24. With the second 20-lap feature lined-up according to an invert assigned from the results of the first 20-lap feature, Stewart earned the outside-third row starting position. The Columbus, Ind., native kicked-off his evening at Williams Grove Speedway by winning his respective heat race.

Other weekend results for Tony Stewart includes being scored 22nd at Grandview Speedway after being involved in an on-track incident, finishing 17th during the first Jack Gunn Memorial 20-lap feature at Williams Grove Speedway, and settling for a 15th place finish at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, August 25.

Stewart was battling just outside of the top-ten at Grandview before being caught up in the red flag chaos.

Up next on the schedule, Tony Stewart will turn his attention from All Star competition to IRA Outlaw Sprint Series competition, joining the Wisconsin-based racing organization during a pair of starts on Saturday and Sunday, September 1 & 2. Stewart will follow the IRA to Plymouth (Wis.) Dirt Track on Saturday, followed by a stop at 141 Speedway near Francis Creek, Wis., on Sunday.

‘Mad Max’ Stambaugh will join All Stars for New York triple-header on August 17-19

‘Mad Max’ Stambaugh will join All Stars for New York triple-header on August 17-19

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

ELIDA, Ohio (August 14, 2018) – The month of August just got a whole lot busier for Elida, Ohio’s Max Stambaugh, as the former All Star Circuit of Champions full-timer is set to rejoin the Indiana-based series for a triple-header in the Empire State.

Stambaugh, driver of the Wicked Cushion/Lima Cadillac Chevrolet/Biggies Coast to Coast/No. 5M sprint car, will follow Tony Stewart’s All Stars to three tracks in three days, venturing throughout much of eastern New York in the process. Action will begin on Friday evening, August 17, with a visit to Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, followed by a stop at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown on Saturday, August 18. The three-day weekend will conclude at the highbanks of Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon on Sunday, August 19.

Although less frequent than years prior, ‘Mad Max’ has joined the All Star Circuit of Champions on multiple occasions in 2018, qualifying for five main events with a pair of top-ten finishes to show for. Certainly one of his season highlights, Stambaugh finished fourth during All Star competition at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park in late April, earning the outside-pole position for the 40-lap, Spring Nationals main event by way of dash victory. The Attica result was Stambaugh’s best All Star finish of the season thus far.

“I’m excited to get back out on the road with the All Star Circuit of Champions this weekend. I owe this opportunity to Wicked Cushion. They really stepped forward and made this trip possible. With Wicked Cushion headquartered in New York, we all felt it was necessary to travel that direction and spend the weekend with the All Star Circuit of Champions,” Max Stambaugh explained, a former All Star Rookie of the Year. “We wanted to race more All Star races this year, but we had to be a little more conservative with our schedule. Thanks to Matt Henninger and Wicked Cushion, we can get back out on the road and work toward an All Star victory.”

Despite his schedule being determined on a week-to-week basis, Stambaugh has been active in 2018 and will enter the New York All Star swing with two victories on the season, each earned during Great Lakes Super Sprints (GLSS) competition – one win at Gas City (Ind.) Speedway and another at Crystal (Mich.) Motor Speedway. Stambaugh’s most recent All Star Circuit of Champions attempt resulted in a tenth place finish during Sharon Speedway’s Lou Blaney Memorial on July 7; there were 41 cars in attendance.

“We have a few things to finish up, but we are ready to go,” Stambaugh continued. “Hopefully we can earn three, solid finishes with the All Stars this weekend and give our fans and partners something to be proud of.”

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 15, 2018) – “Smoke” Tony Stewart kicked-off his 2018 winged sprint car campaign in a hurry, entering seven events in ten days at two of north Florida’s well-known dirt ovals. During his ten-day visit, Stewart, aboard his Rush Truck Centers/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/No. 14, accumulated four top-ten finishes, two within the top-five, highlighted with a runner-up performance during Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 competition at Bubba Raceway Park on Thursday, February 1.

The Columbus, Ind., native earned his runner-up finish from the front row, solidifying a top-two starting positioning by finishing second during his respective heat race and winning the second of two dashes.

Stewart’s runner-up performance was followed by a second consecutive top-ten finish on Friday evening, crossing under the final checkers ninth in the running order after starting on the outside of row four. The top-ten was set-up by a dash appearance, the result of recording the fastest time during his respective qualifying group and finishing third during heat race competition.

Stewart’s success with the All Star Circuit of Champions is certainly nothing new to his racing resume, earning five top-five finishes in 20 main event starts in 2017 including a victory at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.

“It was a solid start for our team,” Tony Stewart explained. “We still have some things we need to work on, but all in all, it was a solid start to the season. Jimmy and Marty worked their tails off this off-season to get us to this point. We’ll keep plugging away and work to get this Rush Truck Centers, No. 14 up front.”

On the whole, Stewart joined the All Star Circuit of Champions for a total of five events in the Sunshine State, qualifying for all five programs contested at Bubba Raceway Park and Volusia Speedway Park between February 1-8, scoring results equaling no worse than 22nd in the running order. After his pair of top-ten performances, “Smoke” finished 11th at Bubba Raceway Park on February 3; 22nd at Volusia Speedway Park on February 7; and 18th at Volusia Speedway Park on February 8.

Once the All Stars concluded competition at Volusia Speedway Park on February 8, Stewart switched focus and traveled back across Route 40, revisiting Bubba Raceway Park just north of Ocala for a pair of United Sprint Car Series Thunder Tour events on Friday and Saturday, February 9-10. In impressive fashion, the Tony Stewart Racing entry earned back-to-back top-ten finishes during the pair of 360ci sprint car programs, climbing a total of 24 positions in two days to finish fifth and seventh, respectively.

“We had a lot of fun in Ocala,” Stewart added. “We kinda had to dig ourselves out of a hole on both nights after not transferring through our heat races, but we recovered and had a lot of fun doing it. Hopefully next time we can get ourselves a little closer to the front and not have to work so hard.”

Stewart’s plans for the next few weeks have not been finalized. News regarding an upcoming schedule will be posted when it becomes available.

Welcome to the third installment of #FIMotorsports Erratic Q&A; an informal questionnaire that puts our racers on the spot. The questions are random and completely unexpected.

“Double-D” Danny Dietrich is now on the #FIMotorsports Erratic Q&A hot seat. The “Pennsylvania Posse” representative spends most of his racing seasons circling Central Pennsylvania, but also takes the time to hit and miss events around the Midwest and Northeast.

Let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?
