Donny Schatz earns tenth World of Outlaws championship

Donny Schatz earns tenth World of Outlaws championship

Tony Stewart Racing clinches ninth WoO owner title since 2001

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 2, 2018) – For the tenth time in his career, now with five in consecutive fashion, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz is a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, making his 2018 title official on Thursday evening during World Finals qualifications at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/ No. 15 sprint car, entered the season-ending World Finals program with a 278-point command, padded by 21 victories in 2018, as well as an astonishing 64 top-ten finishes in 69 World of Outlaws starts thus far. In fact, 2018 marks as the sixth consecutive season that Schatz reached the 20-win milestone.

Schatz’ 2018 title bumps his total to eight under Tony Stewart Racing (TSR), all after accumulating back-to-back triumphs for Donny Schatz Motorsports (DSM) in 2006 & 2007. The transition from DSM to TSR in 2008 proved to be a successful decision for Schatz, actually kicking off his TSR tenure with a title later that season.

“It’s an honor to be a part of this organization. I get to work with the best team in sprint car racing and it shows night in and night out. I’m just the guy who gets to drive the car,” Donny Schatz said. “Our goal is to win races, but when you race a schedule like we do, you have to take a step back and look at the big picture. My team puts me in a position to win every night, and if not, we have the ability to battle forward and race near the front. The results that we put together allow us to contend for a championship. It’s a real privilege.”

Including the eight captured by Schatz, Tony Stewart Racing now owns nine World of Outlaws team titles. The first of the nine was accomplished in 2001 by Dover, Missouri’s Danny Lasoski. Schatz’ titles for TSR were earned in 2008, 2009, 2012, and 2014-2018.

“It’s pretty cool to see what Donny has accomplished over the last decade; I’m glad he has allowed TSR to be a part of his Hall of Fame career,” said Tony Stewart, owner of Tony Stewart Racing.  “Steve (Kinser) will always be the King with his longevity and 20 Outlaw titles in the sport, but Donny is certainly proving to the best of his generation and down the road, arguments will be made who is the best of all time. For now, we’re going to celebrate this weekend. Congrats to Donny and the 15 team: Ricky, Scuba, Brad and Gary.”

Donny Schatz’ 2018 championship adds depth to an extensive team resume that now includes a grand total of 27 titles across multiple divisions of short track auto racing. On top of nine World of Outlaws championships, Tony Stewart’s ownership resume is also comprised of 14 USAC championships, as well as four TQ titles with Ron Combs.

Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will conclude their 2018 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship campaign, officially, with two, full nights of World Finals competition on Friday and Saturday, November 2 & 3. The World of Outlaws championship celebration will take shape on Sunday, November 4.

Zearfoss to rejoin family team for World Finals; 2019 plans in the works

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 31, 2018) – Effective immediately, Brock Zearfoss and Destiny Motorsports have parted ways. The Jonestown, Pa., native will return to the Zearfoss Family-owned No. 3Z full-time beginning with World Finals competition which commences tomorrow – Thursday, November 1 – at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, North Carolina.

“I want to thank Rick and Barb Rogers for the opportunity to drive for Destiny Motorsports. It was a great experience to race out on the road and visit new tracks and states. Unfortunately, things didn’t sort out as intended and we’ve decided to part ways,” Brock Zearfoss explained. “I want to thank the crew – Shane, Kevin, and Tyler – for their hard work and support during the last few months. I’m excited for what the future holds for me. Our plans for 2019 are coming together quickly.”

During recent competition, Brock Zearfoss and Brock Zearfoss Racing entered the 51st running of the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. Forced to wait an extra day due to Mother Nature, Zearfoss battled against a loaded field of 51 entries during the historic, $51,000-to-win program and qualified for the 50-lap main event by finishing second during his respective heat race. Plagued with brake issues, Zearfoss was forced to retire early; he was scored 17th after starting 11th.

“Considering the circumstances, we decided to enter the Tuscarora 50 with our own car,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Meckley’s Limestone/Central Builders Supply Co./Berkebile Oil Company/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Creekside Roofing and Siding/Bargain Barn/No. 3Z. “It wasn’t a bad day for our team. We ended up breaking a brake line which forced things to kind of end early for us. I want to thank my family and crew for helping me get things ready in a hurry. I’m excited to get back in the ‘3Z’ this weekend in Charlotte.”

World Finals competition will begin with two rounds of qualifying time trials on Thursday, followed by back-to-back nights of racing on Friday and Saturday, November 2 & 3.

Danny Dietrich recovers for top-ten during 51st Tuscarora 50

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 29, 2018) – Danny Dietrich’s 2018 season is officially in the books.

Although concluding the year off of the podium, Dietrich’s performance during the 51st running of the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway was impressive, ultimately rallying from an early race flat to finish well inside the top-ten. For Dietrich, the top-ten performance propelled his season total to 52, 33 of which inside the top-five. In addition, the driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing machine earned ten victories in 2018, most recently scoring a mark in the win column during action at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Including his BAPS triumph in September, Dietrich amassed two wins at the York Haven oval this season, also accumulating victories during starts at Lincoln Speedway (5), Port Royal Speedway (2), and Williams Grove Speedway (1).

“The second-half of our season was frustrating at times, but we still managed to put together a lot of great results,” Danny Dietrich said. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work and support in 2018. I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish. We went through a lot this season, from happiness to heartache, but it was a great ride. All we can do now is begin rebuilding for next year.”

Danny Dietrich finished seventh on Sunday afternoon at Port Royal Speedway and earned his way into the 50-lap, $51,000-to-win program by winning his respective heat race. With track conditions playing in his favor, Dietrich was in contention to win the big payday, only to be denied on lap 17 by a cut tire. Dietrich returned to the speedway to finish the event, eventually battling his way forward for a top-ten performance.

“I think we were going to be OK, but that’s just how our luck has been,” Dietrich continued. “All we can do now is move forward and work to win it next year.”

Donny Schatz earns historic Port Royal payday during 51st Tuscarora 50

Donny Schatz earns historic Port Royal payday during 51st Tuscarora 50

Date: Sunday, October 28th
Event: 51st Annual Tuscarora 50
Series: World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series
Track: Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pa.)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (5th)

World of Outlaws Championship Standings (as of 10/29/2018): 1st – 9,664 points (278-point margin over second place, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 29, 2018) – It was an afternoon to remember for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing, not only securing their 21st victory of the 2018 season, twice the total of the second-leading winner on the circuit, but also scoring one of the largest paydays of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series season – $51,513 to be exact.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 15 sprint car, continued his title quest with a visit to Central Pennsylvania for the 51st running of the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway. Despite being forced to wait an extra day due to Mother Nature, the delay did not impact the Fargo, N.D., native, ultimately scoring the $51,000+ winner’s share over a stout field of 51 competitors.

Starting fifth on the main event grid, the nine-time and defending Outlaws champion commenced his charge toward the front in a hurry, eventually snagging the second position from Central Pennsylvania front-runner Lucas Wolfe on lap 22, just before earning the top spot from WoO championship contender Brad Sweet on lap 32. The winning move was a signature one for the now three-time Port Royal Speedway feature winner, utilizing the bottom groove to drive under Sweet at the entrance of turn one.

“That felt like a 500-miler,” Schatz said with a chuckle in victory lane about the caution-filled, 50-lap main event. “My team is incredible at what they do and it’s pretty cool to win that big money with them. Anytime you win in Pennsylvania it’s big and this is a big one.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will cap off their 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series championship campaign with back-to-back nights of competition at the season-ending World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. Two rounds of World of Outlaws qualifying will take shape on Thursday, November 1, followed by back-to-back programs on Friday and Saturday, November 2 & 3.

Schatz will enter the weekend with a 278-point command in the title chase. With that said, just showing up to the World Finals will solidify a tenth championship with the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Max Stambaugh will join Home Pro Racing full-time in 2019; Florida bound to begin year

Max Stambaugh will join Home Pro Racing full-time in 2019; Florida bound to begin year

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

ELIDA, Ohio (October 22, 2018) – Right from the start, Elida, Ohio’s ‘Mad Max’ Stambaugh and Michigan-based car owner Shannon Eifert proved to be a winning combination. Despite a short, but active campaign, connecting for less than ten starts during the latter half of the 2018 season, the success was nearly instantaneous, ultimately earning a victory at Butler (Mich.) Motor Speedway during their first start of the year, followed by another trip to victory lane at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan. With that being said, Max Stambaugh and Shannon Eifert will join forces full-time in 2019, planning a near-40 race assault across much of the Midwest kicking off officially with action in the Sunshine State during the early weeks of February.

“I can’t thank Shannon Eifert enough for this opportunity. He believes in me and I am confident we’ll continue to do great things together. I’m excited to see what the future holds,” Max Stambaugh explained. “We put together some solid runs this year which is really motivating considering we’ve only raced a few times. Shannon and the team provide me with the equipment necessary to be successful and I am truly grateful. Hopefully we can come out swinging next year and do great things right from the start.”

Max Stambaugh and Home Pro Racing, backed by Shannon Eifert’s Home Pro Roofing, Owens Corning Roofing Products, Products Provided by ABC Supply Co., CR Meyers and Associates, and Chad Miller Southside Auto Body, will enter an array of sanctioned events during the 2019 season, planning to join such series as the All Star Circuit of Champions, Great Lakes Super Sprints (GLSS), Sprints On Dirt (SOD), FAST Series, United Sprint Car Series (USCS) and the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series (WoO).

Stambaugh brings a stout resume to the Home Pro Racing family that includes back-to-back runner-up finishes in the NRA Sprint Invaders championship, an All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year accomplishment, and a combined win total equaling 11 during the last three seasons, most of which earned during 410 sprint car competition.

In addition to a full slate of Home Pro Racing commitments, Stambaugh also plans to make select starts in his familiar, family-owned No. 5M sprint car, planning to enter 360 and 410 events, much much like his outlook with Shannon Eifert.

“Shannon and I have roughly 35-40 events on our radar, but during times in between, I’ll hop back in my family car for a race here and there,” Stambaugh continued. “We raced the 5M a lot this summer and we had some success. We were really careful with our scheduling and it seemed to work out really well for us. We had some success, which is great, but we also had a lot of fun. So many people made our family team a reality and I owe everything to them. Hopefully we can continue to make supporters like Wicked Cushion, Biggies, Specialized Therapy, and Lima Cadillac proud long into the future.”

Tentatively, Max Stambaugh and Home Pro Racing will open their 2019 season with action in Florida, anxious to join the All Star Circuit of Champions during scheduled events at Bubba Raceway Park (Winter Dirt Games) and Volusia Speedway Park (DIRTcar Nationals).

Other possibilities include joining the World of Outlaws at Volusia during their segment of the DIRTcar Nationals, as well as visit East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa for the King of the 360s program worth $10,000.

Continuing updates regarding Max Stambaugh and Home Pro Racing will be posted in the near-future. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media, as well as at www.fullyinjected.com.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 22, 2018) – For the sixth consecutive season, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz reached the 20-win mark during World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competition, this time reaching that feat during a visit to Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, Kan., on Saturday, October 20. The $10,000 victory, accomplished from the outside-front row, was attained during the Outlaw Boot Hill Showdown, ultimately holding back at late race surge by World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender, Ian Madsen, to claim high honors.

Madsen led the first eight circuits before Schatz took over the top spot on lap nine. As the pair battled through traffic, Schatz took advantage, eventually driving around the familiar No. 18 as they raced back to the flagstand.

The victory included, Schatz now owns an astonishing 50 top-five finishes in 68 World of Outlaws starts, stretching his advantage in the WoO championship standings to 278 markers over Brad Sweet.

“It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to drive for this team against this level of competition,” Donny Schatz stated, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 15 sprint car. “To reach 20 victories in a season says so much about my team’s work ethic and their level of motivation. I’m proud of them and what we have been able to accomplish in 2018. We still have a few races left on our schedule. We are not done yet.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing kicked off their trip to the Sunflower State on Friday, October 19, with a visit to Lakeside Speedway near Kansas City. Nearly attaining his 20th victory of the season one night prior, Schatz ended his Lakeside invasion second in the running order, ending a charge from the inside of row four.

Utilizing a restart just before the midpoint of the 30-lap program, Schatz capitalized and drove from fourth to third by the completion of lap 13, then taking the runner-up spot away from Sheldon Haudenschild with a bold move in turns three and four on lap 16. Although on a direct path toward the front, Schatz would finish one spot short, ultimately chasing Daryn Pittman to the final checkers.

Donny Schatz’s World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series campaign will continue on Friday and Saturday, October 26 & 27, with a return to the Keystone State, this time invading the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ for the 51st running of the Tuscarora 50. The Saturday night finale, stretching 50 laps in distance, will award a $51,000 top prize. Friday’s program will award an $8,000 payday.

Donny Schatz is the defending Port Royal Speedway Outlaw winner, keeping Pennsylvania and Port Royal favorite, Lance Dewease, in his rearview mirror. The 2017 event, the Nittany Showdown, awarded $10,000.

Smoke scores second USCS win of season, third win overall during visit to Southern Raceway

Date: Friday, October 19th
Event: Hattiesburg Speedway Season Finale
Series: United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour
Track: Hattiesburg Speedway (Hattiesburg, Miss.)
Tony Stewart A-Main Finish (Start): 5th (6th)

Series: United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour
Track: Southern Raceway (Milton, Fla.)
Tony Stewart A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (6th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 22, 2018) – Despite kicking off the weekend with some bad luck in Hattiesburg, Miss., Smoke persevered and charged for a United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour victory at Southern Raceway in Milton, Florida. Stewart, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car, rallied from sixth to earn his second USCS victory of the 2018 season, battling by National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee, Danny Smith, on lap 16 to do so.

For Smoke, the victory on October 20 bumped his overall total to three in 2018, adding his pair of USCS 360 triumphs to an All Star victory at BAPS Motor Speedway in late-August. Stewart’s first USCS win of the year took shape on Saturday, March 3, at the Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi.

“It feels good to get another one of these,” Tony Stewart explained about his USCS victory. “I feel like we’ve been close a lot this year with the USCS, Friday included. Regardless, hats off to Jimmy and Marty for all of their hard work. Their schedule hasn’t been easy this year, but they keep their heads up and keep pushing forward”

Despite resulting in a top-five finish, Tony Stewart’s visit to Hattiesburg (Miss.) Speedway on Friday, October 19, was quite the roller coaster. After starting sixth on the feature grid, Smoke battled his way forward and was making a pass for second when disaster struck, ultimately getting collected in a spin. Restarting at the tail of the field, Stewart rebounded in a hurry and eventually worked his way back to fifth by the time the final checkers flew.

The top-five, added with his victory on Saturday, increased his season top-five total to 27.

On a side note, Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart Racing teammate Donny Schatz each earned victories on Saturday night during sprint car competition. Schatz’s triumph occurred during World of Outlaws action at Dodge City (Kan.) Raceway Park capping off a perfect night for the Brownsburg, Indiana-based race team.

Upcoming plans remain uncertain for Tony Stewart. Fans are encouraged to stay alert online, as well as on all of the available social media outlets.

Abreu highlights Trophy Cup with top-five on opening night

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, October 18th- 20th
Event: 25th Annual Rico Abreu Racing Trophy Cup presented by Rudeen Racing
Series: Non-sanctioned event
Track: Thunderbowl Raceway (Tulare, Calif.)
Rico Abreu Finishes (Start):
Thursday: A-Main – 5th (13th)
Friday: B-Main – 5th / A-Main – DNQ
Saturday: A-Main – 22nd (7th)
Overall Trophy Cup Points: 20th

ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 22, 2018) – Despite a weekend filled with highs and lows, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu made the most of his 2018 Trophy Cup effort at Thunderbowl Raceway, highlighting the weekend with one top-five finish and qualifying for two out of three contested main events.

When the dust settled on Saturday night, Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Alpinestars/Rhino Wipe/Lucas Oil Products/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car, found himself 20th in the overall Trophy Cup standings.

On a positive side note, Jac Haudenschild, who was piloting a second Rico Abreu Racing entry during Trophy Cup weekend, scored the overall Trophy Cup title, as well as Friday’s main event win.

“It wasn’t the weekend that we wanted, especially after getting started on such a high note. Regardless, I’m proud of this team and what they were able to do this weekend,” Rico Abreu said. “Also, a big congrats going out to Jac Haudenschild on his Trophy Cup title. That’s pretty special and I’m excited to be a part of that feat.”

Rico Abreu’s Trophy Cup campaign kicked off with a fifth place finish on Thursday, October 18. Forced to do things the hard way, Abreu won his respective consolation B-main to earn his way into the Trophy Cup preliminary feature, ultimately climbing from 13th to clinch the fifth place performance.

Unfortunately, Abreu’s success was limited during the final two nights of the 25th Annual Trophy Cup in Tulare, California; a fifth place finish during his respective B-main was short of a transfer position on Friday, followed by an incident during the Saturday night finale. Unlike Friday, Abreu qualified for main event competition on Saturday and started seventh on the grid. Unfortunately, a crash ended all effort and Abreu was scored 22nd.

Future plans remain uncertain for Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing. As of now, the team will be off during the upcoming weekend.
