Winner Brad Sweet (DB3 Photo)



LEADING THE WAY: Sweet wins at Beaver Dam for back-to-back wins
Brad Sweet continues early season dominance by winning at Beaver Dam Raceway, extending his points lead over Donny Schatz

In the words of Brad Sweet, “the more you lead, the better you get at it.” The statement rings like a prophecy he wrote from himself.

Almost halfway through the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series 2019 season, Sweet has made leading a habit and gotten better at it each race.

With more than 100 laps led already this season, the Grass Valley, Calif.-native added another 38 laps to that total after claiming his fifth win of the season Saturday night at Beaver Dam Raceway – and his second win in-a-row.

“I’m just happy we’re clicking them off and have a little bit of momentum on our side,” said Sweet, after claiming his 39th career Series victory.

His second victory at the Wisconsin track wasn’t earned without a few faults and lessons learned along the way.

The 1/3-mile track was slick and technical for the 40-lap Feature, he said. That meant finding the right line at the right time; a feat the Kasey Kahne Racing driver faults himself for not executing perfectly.

But before the track began to take rubber late in the race, forcing Sweet to contemplate the best line, he had to contest with DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash winner Shane Stewart for the lead.

On the initial start, Stewart jumped to the lead riding the high side of the track. Sweet chose the bottom. In two laps, the advantage proved to be Sweet’s. The NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 sped by Stewart, putting close to a second gap between them.

His newfound lead was cut short a few seconds later when Logan Schuchart brought out the first caution of the night by coming to a stop in turn three.

On the restart, Sweet returned to form. He shot to the lead, leaving the remaining 23 cars to content for second amongst themselves. Stewart held on to the position for the next few laps before trying the low line and bicycling his car off turn four, giving Daryn Pittman an easy pass for second-place.

For the remaining 33 laps, third-place was traded between Stewart, David Gravel, Sheldon Haudenschild, Donny Schatz and Ian Madsen. Each driver throwing a slide job on the next to try and claim the position.

By the halfway point, Sweet caught lap traffic and Pittman started to close in. However, navigating lap traffic – a situation Sweet has found himself in several times already this year while leading – only made him faster.

Pittman eventually transitioned to the high side and again began to close in on Sweet. But with 15 laps to go, Sweet also moved to the top and pulled away to the $20,000 victory.

“It was finesse. It was tricky,” Sweet said about the race. “I had to move around on the race track. I think the bottom caught a few guys off guard. I don’t know if they thought they should be on the bottom in (turns) three and four. I kind of had an idea. I did my warm up down there to see how much grip was down there.

“Luckily it was good down there early and I was able to get the lead. I made a couple of mistakes there. I probably stayed down there too long. But I didn’t want to follow lap guys. It’s just tricky sometimes leading and moving around.”

While Pittman’s second-place finish – his third podium finish in-a-row – was a momentum building performance with his Roth Motorsports team, he’s hungry for more.

“It just feels like it’s been a while since I won,” said Pittman, who last won in Florida in February. “I’ve gone from, how do we turn things around, to being consistent, to now dammit I want to win. We’ve still got to get a little bit better, but we’re close.”

The duel for third was won by the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41 car of Gravel. In JJR’s return to Beaver Dam Raceway after Jason Johnson’s fatal accident at the raceway last year, Gravel kept the No. 41 car up front all night. He was fastest in practice, went Quick Time in Qualifying, won his Drydene Heat race and fought hard for a podium.

“We wanted to win tonight, but we’re happy with a podium,” Gravel said. “Third is good. We’ve been rolling pretty good here. Just have to keep it going.”

Gravel’s podium finish leaves him fourth in points – 144 points behind leader Sweet. Pittman is third – 138 points back – and Schatz is second – now 54 points behind Sweet after finishing seventh.

Along with the points lead, Sweet now leads World of Outlaws drivers in the most laps led, the most podium finishes – with 12 – and most wins, so far, this year. To Sweet, though…

“It really doesn’t mean a whole lot,” Sweet said. “It’s not a bad thing ever to, toward the end of June, have the most wins. But I’ve been there before. I’ll keep saying it over and over and over, these next few months, July, August and in even September, those are the months that are going to make or break the season. You can run good all the way to July 1 and never win another race.”

Consistency is key to Sweet and his Kasey Kahne Racing team. Lead more, win more.

The more he leads, the better he gets.

Winner Brad Sweet (DB3 Photo)



LATE NIGHT BASH: Sweet wins at Knoxville
Brad Sweet wins second night of World of Outlaws doubleheader weekend at Knoxville Raceway

When the checkered flags waved over a victorious Brad Sweet at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night the time was close to 1 a.m. Central Time, due to Mother Nature’s evening splash of rain.

Exhaustion had no presence on Sweet’s face, though. Sweat and a big grin, yes. Maybe even a hint of relief. But no fatigue. For the Grass Valley, Calif.-native, his fourth win of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season was just another day in the office.

“We live a recluse life out here on the Outlaw tour where you pretty much train yourself to not get out of bed before 10 or 11 (in the morning) because all the work has to be done at night time,” Sweet said. “This is pretty normal for us. Once you get in the seat of the race car, it’s just like any other night.”

While he cruised to the victory in the closing laps of the 25-lap Feature with no pressure from behind, the laps prior forced Sweet to earn the win.

In a rare start at Knoxville Raceway, polesitter Lance Dewease out dueled Sweet for the lead at the start of the Feature and pulled away by three car lengths. The Fayetteville, Pa.-native led the first 13 laps of the Feature – a drastic turn of events after Dewease failed to transfer to Friday night’s Knoxville Feature.

“We made a lot of changes,” said Dewease, who finished sixth. “I really screwed up in time trials (Friday night) and didn’t run the right laps and corners. I knew tonight we were going to make that up, as far as me, personally. And they got the car a lot better from the drop of the green.”

As laps clicked off during the Feature Dewease said he got too loose, and Sweet passed him for the lead with 12 laps to go.

Sweet only led the next two laps, before Logan Schuchart, who also got by Dewease, caught the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car.

Continuing to run the bottom of the track, Sweet bounced off the inside berm in turn one, slowing his momentum and allowing the Drydene No. 1s of Schuchart to charge by him on the outside. Sweet wasn’t ready to let Schuchart drive away, though.

The two drivers traded lanes going into turn three; Sweet high, and Schuchart low. Sweet stayed within a car length of Schuchart exiting turn four and threw his car underneath him going back into turn one. His attack didn’t work. Schuchart powered off turn two, maintaining the lead.

Sweet, still resilient, kept Schuchart in sight. In their return to turn three, Schuchart went high and Sweet back low. This time around, the advantage went to Sweet. He found enough grip to get side-by-side with Schuchart down the front stretch and dart by him for the lead in turn one.

Schuchart made one final attempt to pass Sweet exiting turn two, looking to his inside, but Sweet shut the door going into turn three. Schuchart was then left to fend off Daryn Pittman for second-place.

“He made me work for it,” Sweet said about Schuchart. “About all I had there to beat him.”

Once Sweet reclaimed the lead, he maintained it for the final seven laps, riding the bottom of the track – the key to his victory.

“When the track’s fast like that it’s tricky,” said a nearly out of breath Sweet. “Everything happening way faster than you want it to. And you still have to try to hit that narrow bottom. That was the key tonight.

“I figured a few things out in the [Feature] and got the bottom to work. I still missed it about 50 percent of the time, So, we still got to get a little bit better. But I think we were better than most tonight.”

Sweet’s fourth victory of the season now ties him with Schuchart for the most wins this year. The win also helped Sweet extend his points lead over second-place Donny Schatz. The 10-time Series champion finished 15th, creating a 40-point deficit between he and Sweet.

While Schuchart missed out on his fifth win of the season, he still sees his performance as a positive to build off of.

“This [Brad Sweet team] won the Knoxville Nationals last year and we ran them down and passed them,” Schuchart said. “That’s something to be proud of.”

Pittman ended up third, after starting 10th. It was his second podium finish in-a-row at Knoxville – a track he didn’t feel like he was good at.

“Maybe I don’t suck here after all,” said Pittman with a smirk. “My car was really good. It was good last night. We really thought about some things that we needed to be better from last night.”

Sweet’s Knoxville victory is his 38th career Series victory and his eighth top-five finish in-a-row. With tricky track conditions and late nights yet to create any fatigue for Sweet and his Kasey Kahne Racing team, they’re poised to build upon their recent momentum.

“We’ve been on a stretch of good runs, just want to keep it going,” Sweet said.

BIG GUN: Brown remains undefeated at Knoxville
Brian Brown dominates World of Outlaws field to win at Knoxville Raceway

There was gravitas in Brian Brown’s yell. After slapping the top wing of his Casey’s General Stores/FVP No. 21 Sprint Car, he held his right fist in the air and stared out to the crowd with the expression of an alpha predator after claiming his territory.

Brown won his first World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race of 2019 at Knoxville Raceway Friday night, and his fourth win in four starts, this year at the iconic raceway.

“It’s huge,” Brown said, holding his emotion back with chuckles. “I dreamed of racing and saying, ‘I hope when I win my first Outlaw show, I can win it at Knoxville.’”

It wasn’t his first World of Outlaws win. Instead, his fifth. That doesn’t make it any less special, though. He wanted a World of Outlaws win at the track he considers home.

“That was my goal,” Brown said. “But I won at North Carolina. Then we won the next two in Arizona. Then I finally win one in Kansas, but it’s still not home. This is.”

To claim the win, he had to fend off Daryn Pittman and Shane Stewart – both winners already this season – and 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz. Beating the eminent World of Outlaws competition meant Brown had to be aggressive.

“My mindset the whole while, really all night, was to just be aggressive,” Brown said. “If there was an opportunity to do something, go.”

He took that opportunity in the first turn on the initial start. Polesitter Daryn Pittman fired to the lead past second-place Shane Stewart and took his Roth Motorsports No. 83 to the high side going into turn one. At the same time, Brown had made his way underneath Stewart and threw a daring slide job into turn one, clearing Stewart and Pittman at the apex of the corner.

Brown’s car then slid to the high side of turn two, a car length ahead of Pittman. Exiting the turn, Pittman could get as close as Brown’s bumper before the white No. 21 rocketed down the back stretch, putting about a three-car length distance between first and second-place.

“We got a good start there and got by Shane, and I didn’t really know what Daryn was going to do… I went on across,” Brown said. “I thought that was very important.”

Brown continued to grow his lead over Pittman until a caution on Lap two for Sammy Swindell who lost power on the front stretch.

On the restart, Brown launched to the lead, clearing Pittman going into turn one. Like the original start, Pittman closed to Brown’s bumper exiting turn two, but that was as close as he would get to the lead again all night. Brown sped away, putting almost half a track distance between he and Pittman 10 laps into the 25-lap Feature.

The three-time Knoxville Raceway track champion – two in a 410 Sprint Car, one in a 360 – cruised around the half-mile raceway like it was a house he built. Lap cars only made Brown faster. He stayed aggressive, passing two or three of the slower cars at a time.

“I knew it was going to be tough to pass lap cars,” Brown said. “I knew I had to make my moves count. If I could get a chance to get two or three at the same time, we had to do that. Because that just makes it harder for the guys behind.”

Brown took the checkered flag four seconds ahead of second-place Pittman. He led all 25 laps. Stewart finished third, after dueling with Schatz for the position.

Pittman showed speed all night, finishing second in his Drydene Heat race and winning the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash – after getting the outside pole starting position in the Dash draw.

While he didn’t leave with the win, Pittman was still pleased with the overall performance.

“That’s the closest I’ve ever been to the front or seeing the front here,” Pittman said. “This is not a great race track for me. So, for me, to feel like I could keep him (Brown) in my sights was a huge accomplishment for myself and this race team. All and all, my car was pretty close. I’ve just got to make a few better decisions and maybe get our car a little better.”

His second top-five in-a-row has now left him tied for third in points with David Gravel, who finished ninth. Brad Sweet continues to lead – now by 10 points over Schatz, who finished one spot ahead of him Friday night; Schatz, fourth, and Sweet, fifth.

Brown, not running full-time with the World of Outlaws, isn't concerned about points. He’s here for wins. And when it comes to Knoxville Raceway, he’s solidified himself as the current alpha.

“I’ve been here before where I’ve maybe been the fastest car at Knoxville, but come to these (World of Outlaws) races I kind of lay an egg, or finish fourth or fifth, which is laying an egg for us,” Brown said. “It’s good to be able to have a fast race car and capitalize on that. We’ll celebrate tonight and get back to the drawing board tomorrow.”

UP NEXT:

Winner Brad Sweet (DB3 Photo)



BOUND AND DETERMINED: Sweet wins, takes points lead,
Brad Sweet overcomes mistake to win big at Granite City Speedway

A rapid of blood forced its way through hearts of thousands. Beats per minute spiked to the redline.

Leader Brad Sweet hit the cushion exiting turn four at Granite City Speedway Saturday night, launching his NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car several inches off the track. With David Gravel breathing down his neck, he was about to lose a jackpot of a night.

Not only was he en route to claiming another World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win, after four podium finishes in-a-row, he was destined to reclaim the points lead due to points leader Donny Schatz not finishing the race.

His error sent a wave of shock, excitement and qualm among the crowd.

Under Sweet’s helmet, there was nothing but focus. No shock. No thrill. No qualm. His heart, beating as normal – as normal as a heart does in a 900hp Sprint Car.

“I’ve been on the tour long enough that I don’t let the emotions get to me,” Sweet said.

That mentality led to him overcoming his mistake and claiming his third Series win this season at the Sauk Rapids, Minn. speedway – his 37th career Series win overall. And the points lead.

“I was bound and determined I think to win that one,” Sweet said. “I’m just happy to get the win.”

At the start of the 35-lap Feature, Sweet was a cheetah among kittens. He rocketed by polesitter Gravel for the lead on the initial start and pulled away by half a track.

Sweet caught lap traffic by Lap six and was lapping up to 14th-place by Lap 15. There was no catching the blue and yellow Kasey Kahne Racing car.

However, once the race reached the halfway point, Gravel began to reel Sweet in. The obstacle course of lap cars Sweet had mastered became a cluster of road blocks.

Then, with 11 laps to go, the unimaginable happened. Ten-time Series champion Schatz hit the wall exiting turn four, destroying the rear end birdcage and ending his night.

On the following restart, Gravel snuck underneath Sweet, slid up in front of him in turn one and launched to the lead.

“I just spun my tires,” Sweet said. “I was too anxious to make sure I got the jump. Once you get spinning there’s really no way to get your tires back.”

Sweet wasn’t ready to let another win slip away. He followed Gravel’s tracks, riding the high side of the speedway, keeping the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41 in sight.

With seven laps to go, Gravel bounced his car off the cushion exiting turn four, drastically killing his speed. Sweet then threw his car underneath Gravel going into turn one and slid back in front of him.

Sweet's next trip around turn four crashed a wave of shock, excitement and qualm into the crowd. He hammered the cushion, sending his front end toward the wall. While he wrestled to stay off the white barrier, Gravel turned back underneath Sweet and reclaimed the lead.

Sweet was bound and determined, though.

With a Hail Mary slide job, he hurled his car to the bottom of the turn one and slid up in front of Gravel exiting turn two. The lead was his. And in the next few laps, the win was, too.

“All you can do is try your hardest and sometimes when you over try bad things happen,” Sweet said about having to rebound from hitting the cushion. “I thought we had the superior car, so I was frustrated with myself I was even in that position. But it played out right. You’re going to win some of those. You’re going to lose some of those. Luckily, tonight we got the win.”

When Sweet sped away with the lead, Gravel was left having to defend second from a hard charging Logan Schuchart in third-place.

“It was a good effort. It was a good race,” Gravel said. “He (Sweet) just pulled away from us early, but I kind of let him go and hopefully I was going to be better than him.”

Schuchart claimed his fourth win of the season Friday night at River Cities Speedway to become the winningest driver, so far, this year. However, he said then his team still needed to put together consistent podium finishes. Saturday night’s third-place run was a good start to that.

“This is definitely what we’re talking about,” Schuchart said. “You always want to win, but this is the consistency we’re talking about.”

Sweet’s consistency of five podium finishes in-a-row has led to him holding a 12-point lead over, now second-place, Schatz. He doesn’t let the emotions of battling for the points lead get to him either.

“Honestly, I don’t pay much attention to the points,” Sweet said. “I don’t want Donny to have a 200-point lead because our goal is to win the championship. But I also know that there are stretches of races that if you’re not running good the points can shift so much.

“At the beginning of my career with the Outlaws, I would look at the points after every race. Now I’m lucky to look at it every three or four races and kind of see where things are at. I know if we’re running good and (Schatz) is behind us we’re going to be gaining. If he’s in front of us every night, then he’s going to be ahead of us. The points will take care of themselves. We’re 26 races into an 80-race schedule. Really, June, July and August are what set the tone for the points. Honestly, we just want to win races.”

They’re bound and determined to do so.

KING SHARK: Schuchart dominates in North Dakota
Logan Schuchart holds off Kasey Kahne Racing teammates for River Cities Speedway victory

With his grinning shark teeth painted helmet in one hand and the checkered flag in the other in Victory Lane at River Cities Speedway Friday night, Logan Schuchart accomplished more than just another win.

He did what no World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series driver has done since 2014 – win more races than 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz a third of the way through the season.

By claiming his fourth win of the season at the Grand Forks, N.D. track, Schuchart is now the winningest driver this year. Schatz and David Gravel are behind him with three wins each.

“To lead the Outlaws in Series wins this time of the year is a pretty cool accomplishment, for where you look at where this team was six years ago and how it started and where we’ve come,” Schuchart said.

Last year, the Shark Racing driver had two wins in total for the season. He won four races in total in 2017 but has yet to surpass that number in a single season. He’s knocking on the door to beat that record now – especially with his performance on the 3/10-mile track to claim his 12th career Series victory.

He started the night winning his Drydene Heat race and then won the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

In the 40-lap Feature, Schuchart did not favor sharing the lead. The record book will show he led every lap. However, Gravel and Australian James McFadden have stories that say otherwise.

At the start of the Feature, Schuchart was a shark racing minnows. He pulled away from second-place Brad Sweet by almost a straightaway, leaving the top-five to figure out their running order as they swapped positions lap after lap. Some cranked their car sideways to the bottom of the track, while others tempted disaster by riding the outside rim of the turns, hoping to not slide off track and down the steep embankment on the other side.

Hope was not enough to keep several drivers on track. Carson Macedo brought out the first of seven cautions by going off track in turn three. On the restart, Gravel went from fourth to second in the first turn, while Kasey Kahne Racing teammates McFadden and Brad Sweet battled for third.

Running the high side, Gravel found enough traction to eat into Schuchart’s lead, getting to his outside by Lap 15. However, before he could attempt a pass. Another caution for a car going off track.

On the following restart, Gravel launched ahead of Schuchart, taking the lead and pulling away to a two-car length lead. It was short lived, though. Exiting turn two, Gravel slid off the corner allowing Schuchart to dart back by him.

The lap went to Schuchart. There was no sharing the lead.

“It’s tough when you’re leading to be able to tell where to go, when the rubber or where the rubber’s coming in,” Schuchart said. “Actually, in the beginning, when Dave got around me, I knew he got a run from the top of three and four, but it actually wasn’t totally rubber, yet. I knew he had to get a run from the top, so I moved up in three and four and I wasn’t going to move my line in one and two until I saw somebody or heard somebody.”

While Schuchart put distance between himself and the top-five once again, the KKR teammates were now battling for second – continuing their spectacular battling from Tuesday night’s race at Fairbury Speedway.

Riding the low line of the slick track, McFadden found enough traction to pull ahead of Sweet and begin his march toward Schuchart.

Round two of Schuchart versus McFadden, after the two raced for the win a couple of weeks ago at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. Schuchart won that battle.

McFadden ran Schuchart down. He could stay on his bumper, but couldn’t find a big enough run to get by the Hanover, Pa. driver.

Then, on a restart with 13 laps to go, McFadden found that run. He launched pass Schuchart on the outside and sailed away. This time, it looked like Schuchart would have to share the lead. But before McFadden could complete the lap, another caution.

McFadden showed his hand. Schuchart now knew what he had to do to win.

“I wasn’t squirting off the bottom as hard as I needed to in (turns) one and two and it was cleaned off a little bit above the bottom,” Schuchart said. “He (McFadden) showed me that, and lucky enough the caution did come out.”

When the race went back green, McFadden could keep Schuchart close enough in sight to read the sponsors on his car, but never garnered enough of a run again to get back by him.

“Once Logan’s out front on that kind of track, he’s probably one of the best guys at racing that,” McFadden said. “I think he was holding back, trying not to get to lap traffic, thinking if he didn’t make a mistake, he wasn’t going to get past. I was just sitting there waiting, and hoping, and it didn’t happen. Still happy with second.”

While Schuchart claimed his fourth win this season, Sweet, who ended up third, earned his fourth podium finish in-a-row.

“We’ll keep plugging away,” Sweet said. “As long as we’re standing on the front stretch each and every night, the wins will start coming.”

Sweet, with two wins this season, continues to sit second in points to Schatz. But with Schatz finishing fourth, the Grass Valley, Calif.-native gained two points on the reigning champion and is now 36 points behind him.

Being the winningest driver, so far, this season has injected Schuchart with pride and confidence. Although, the amount of wins he has won’t mean anything if he can’t find consistency. His performance this year has left him fifth in points -- 202 points behind Schatz.

“It seems one night we win, the next night we’re fifteenth,” he said. “We’re going to keep working at it, try to figure it out and hopefully pick up some more wins.”

The World of Outlaws will continue its tour through the Northwest on Saturday, June 8, at Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minn.

CRAZY TRAIN: Larson wins epic Illinois showdown
Kyle Larson out duels Kasey Kahne Racing teammates to claim first ever World of Outlaws back-to-back victories

Your heart tried to explode. If you stopped to think you’d realize you weren’t breathing. But there was no time for that. Every lap, every corner, the potential for a new leader. A new reason to not blink.

James McFadden? Brad Sweet? Kyle Larson? Your mind spun with the question of who will win, unable to find a clear answer as the three drivers dueled with the intensity of gladiators fighting to be the last man standing.

Then the dust settled. A moment of quiet ease spread around the quarter-mile Fairbury Speedway arena. Climbing atop the wing of his No. 57 machine to thunderous applause and an explosion of confetti was Larson – claiming his eighth World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series win Tuesday night.

The win gives him back-to-back World of Outlaws victories, after winning his last Series race at Lawrenceburg Speedway on Memorial Day.

“Cool to get a win back-to-back with the Outlaws, I’ve never done that before,” Larson said.

The last time he won more than one World of Outlaws race in a season was back in 2013 – a year before he went full-time NASCAR Cup Series racing.

Larson had to duel with fellow NASCAR competitor Christopher Bell and 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz to claim the win at Lawrenceburg. This time around, he had to face the dominate Kasey Kahne Racing duo of McFadden and Sweet.

The KKR teammates started the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown event going first and second in practice with Sweet pacing the field. The No. 49 car then backed up its speed in Qualifying by setting Quick Time. McFadden was third. Larson seventh.

Sweet then won his Drydene Heat race with ease. Larson and McFadden dueled for the win in the third Drydene Heat race of the night with Larson dominating the field.

McFadden came back with force, charging to the win in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash. Sweet finished third, and Larson sixth – setting their starting position for the 40-lap Feature.

McFadden wrestled with his 900hp machine, taming it like a wild stallion at the start of the Feature to take the early lead. His run was cut short by a red flag on the first lap for Dylan Tuxhorn rolling over in turn one.

When the Feature went back green, heart rates amplified. Breaths were held. McFadden led, but Sweet was charging for a fight.

The two teammates traded lanes lap after lap, corner after corner. Sweet could power his way to either the inside or outside of the orange No. 9 car into the turn, but McFadden could launch off the exit with the power of the gods.

While they dueled, Larson slayed the competition between him and the leaders with ease. By Lap 13, he gave the KKR duo something else to fear. Going into turn three he forced his car under Sweet, making it a three-wide battle through the corner – a common theme throughout the next several laps.

Sweet built up a strong enough run to steal the lead from McFadden on Lap 17. He couldn’t shake him, though. McFadden and Larson stayed on his bumper and the next time around they both snuck by him. McFadden threw his car low in turn three, while Larson squeezed his car between the outside of Sweet and the wall.

McFadden reclaimed the lead and now had a fierce Larson to contend with. The next lap, back in turns three and four, McFadden, again, went low and Larson high. The god-like launches McFadden could get exiting a corner were no match for the resilient throttle hungry Larson.

The two traded the lead for the next couple of laps with Larson eventually prevailing. McFadden still had fight left in him, though. And not far behind was Sweet, lurking. Waiting for another opportunity to strike.

In the closing laps, with the leaders having to navigate lap traffic, Larson couldn’t lose McFadden. The Australian was building momentum lap after lap, inching closer and closer to Larson. But then, with eight laps to go, McFadden’s battle came to an end.

While stuck behind a lap car through turns one and two, McFadden hit the corner tire and spun to a stop.

“Really fun race track,” said McFadden, still with a smile, after the Feature. “It was awesome racing with Brad and Kyle. They’re obviously a couple of the best guys in the country. I don’t know if I just misjudged the lap car. He got the tractor tire I think and slowed him a bunch. I just got into the back of him and when I did that, the tractor tire came out, after he hit it, and I got it and that was that. At the end of the day, it was a positive step for the team.”

In the remaining eight laps, Larson now had to contest with a hard charging Sweet.

Larson stuck to the bottom of the track – the least likely place for him to make a mistake, he said. Sweet took advantage of that, soaring around the outside of the speedway to find as much grip as he could to catch the white No. 57 Silva Motorsports car.

Coming to the checkered flag, Larson faltered. He slid off turn four, scrubbing speed and allowing Sweet the opportunity to strike one final time.

The distance between the leaders was still too much for Sweet, though. Like a warrior on a steed signifying his victory, Larson sprinted to the checkered flag with his front two wheels off the ground.

“That was just an exciting race from start to finish for me,” Larson said. “Shoot, 40 laps around this place was crazy. It felt like we swapped the lead a lot. Just an awesome race track. Short tracks are always a blast.”

Sweet’s runner-up finish helped him cut into Schatz’s points – now only 38 points behind the reigning champion. He said he felt like he had the better car, but probably got too timid in lap traffic, compared to Larson’s maneuvers.

“He’s crazy,” Sweet said about Larson with a grin. “He was bouncing off the wall in (turn) one and bouncing off the wall in three and four.”

Larson would agree with Sweet’s sentiment.

“I’m always all out,” Larson said. “I don’t even know how I would be if I was running for points with the Outlaws. It would be hard for me to change my driving style. I’m just crazy, yeah.”

That craziness makes speed though, he added.

The kind of speed that made your heart explode with excitement. Your breath run and hide. And your mind spin with questions. But there was no time to worry about that. Because every corner, every lap, there was the potential for a new leader. A new reason not to blink.

SHOW STOPPER: Stewart wins big in Nashville

Shane Stewart beats Brent Marks for Music City Outlaw Nationals win in thrilling show

Among the music halls and concert venues of Nashville, there was no bigger stage than the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ Music City Outlaw Nationals at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway Saturday night.

Thousands of buoyant fans filled the grandstand. Spotlights gleamed off the brown clay quarter-mile oval surface. The prize, a guitar shaped trophy, $25,000 in winnings and the pride of making history; becoming an inaugural Music City Outlaw Nationals champion.

That kind of stage can birth a star. Rejuvenate a career.

Coming up on almost a year since winning a race, that’s exactly what Shane Stewart needed.

His winning performance Saturday night showed it. In spectacular fashion, the Oklahoma-native claimed his first win of the season with his new CJB Motorsports team and his 34th career World of Outlaws win.

“Big stage, big win for this team,” Stewart said.

With one win during the 2018 season, Stewart was released from his ride with Kyle Larson Racing at the end of the year. At the same time CJB Motorsports parted ways with its then driver, David Gravel – a pairing that never finished worse than third in points together.

The two paired together for the 2019 season, starting the season off strong in Volusia by leading laps and finishing second in the opening race. From there on out, races of disappointment and wins that could have been.

It was a scenario Stewart almost had to cope with again.

With a pinch of luck, Stewart’s team drew an early Qualifying order position, leading to the No. 5 car being second fastest to Brad Sweet’s track record breaking 14.083 sec. time. Stewart then went on to win his Drydene Heat race and finish second in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash – putting him on the outside pole for the 30-lap Feature.

Throwing his car around the tight turns of the quarter-mile track, Stewart took the lead on the first lap of the Feature and put distance between he and second-place lap after lap. His early run was cut short by Daryn Pittman spinning and bringing out the caution on Lap two.

On the restart, Stewart set sail again. Behind him, though, lurked another driver just as eager to return to Victory Lane.

In the early stage of year, Brent Marks missed two Features and didn’t find the top-10 until the tenth race of the 2019 season. The Myerstown, Pa.-native earned his first top-five during the first round of the Music City Outlaw Nationals Friday night and was poised to do better on night two.

Marks methodically charged his way from fourth to second by Lap five. Two laps later, he found himself to the outside of Stewart down the front stretch. The two went side-by-side into turn one. Marks high. Stewart low.

Stewart slid up the track in turn two, allowing Marks to dart underneath him exiting the corner. But before he could complete the pass, a caution came out for several cars tangled in turn four.

Marks showed his hand. Stewart now knew there was no cruising to a win. The battle was on.

When the race went back green, Stewart stuck to the high side, while Marks ran low. The red No. 19 car showed its nose to Stewart turn after turn. Until Lap 11.

Marks finally found enough traction on the bottom of turns three and four to pull past Stewart for the lead. He cleared the No. 5 car the next corner, but Stewart wasn’t ready to watch another potential win slip away. He launched his car around the outside of Marks through turns three and four and charged back to the lead.

Marks then returned the move by throwing his car to the bottom of turn one and sliding up in front of Stewart in the center of the turn. Stewart cut underneath Marks, but couldn’t find enough traction to challenge Marks again for the position.

Marks was on his way to a historic win.

Lap traffic soon became an obstacle, though. Stewart kept Marks in his crosshairs, giving the Pennsylvanian no room for error while the track slicked up each lap.

With nine laps to go, Marks misjudged his drive into turn one around the outside of a lapped car and hit the cushion. His error allowed Stewart to dart past him and reclaim the lead, again.

The win wasn’t his, yet. Marks stayed close behind and with three laps to go Sweet made it a three-horse race for the win, challenging Marks for second. And even though Stewart reclaimed the lead, he knew it was going to be a battle to keep it.

“I don’t think I had the best car, but I knew once we got in to lap traffic, I had to be patient,” Stewart said. “I knew the bottom was going to be key.”

Stewart cautiously slid his car to the bottom of the track each turn and eased back on the throttle off of it, leaving no opening for Marks to make a run. He did that with fine-tuned precision, leading to a standing ovation by the crowd as he soared past the checkered flag.

“It’s special,” Stewart said about the win. “Being the inaugural race here at Nashville. So many people here that came out to support the World of Outlaws, which is really cool to see. Just a big win. I don’t know where it ranks, but it’s up there for sure.”

For Marks, he was left meandering by his car, contemplating what could have been. But he still had fun.

“It actually was a lot of fun,” Marks said. “I thought the track was in real good shape there for the Feature and made it racy for us. Sort of took a little bit of rubber there toward the end. It wasn’t like lock down rubber, so when you’re following lap cars around and keep hearing people behind you because obviously everybody is so close, you’ve got to try to outsmart them.

“Another good thing to do is put a lap car between them. That’s what I tried to do and just caught the wall the wrong way.”

Sweet, who finished third said he hopes to continue to build momentum with his team. He cut a small chuck out of Donny Schatz’s points lead, now sitting 48 points behind the reigning champion in second.

Stewart’s win also puts him into Nashville’s history books. He became the second World of Outlaws driver to win on the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway dirt track, constructed on the speedway’s quarter-mile asphalt track with about seven million pounds of dirt put on it. Schatz claimed the first night of the Music City Outlaw Nationals Friday night.

There was no bigger stage this weekend than the Music City Outlaw Nationals doubleheader. It birthed a new star of an event that left several fans asking when the Series will return to Nashville. And it rejuvenated Stewart’s season with a guitar shaped trophy and $25,000 pay day. More importantly, just a win. Exactly what he needed.

The World of Outlaws will make its next trip on Tuesday, June 4, to Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.
