Three Is Company: Schatz Charges to Win, Gravel awarded the coveted 'Big Gator'

BARBERVILLE, Fla. - February 19, 2017 - Donny Schatz etched his name into DIRTcar Nationals history Sunday, winning both the afternoon and night show at Volusia Speedway Park. The trip down victory lane gave Schatz 17 career wins at the half-mile, and he captured three of the five sprint shows in the 12-day event.

With the victory, Schatz joined Jeff Swindell and Sammy Swindell as the only Outlaws to win multiple series races in one day. Jeff Swindell first accomplished the one-day sweep at Rolling Wheels (N.Y.) Raceway Park on October 8, 1994. Sammy Swindell matched his brother's feat in 1999 at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway.

Though Schatz won the majority of the week's sprint car races, those he did not win proved to test his No. 15 Tony Stewart-Curb/Agajanian Racing team. In the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series opener, Schatz qualified 24th in a 36-car pack and placed fourth in his heat race. Sunday night was similar, as Schatz only qualified seven positions better and placed fifth in his heat. What differed for the eight-time champion this time was his ability to move through the 26-car feature field.

"We didn't change anything," Schatz said. "I thought the car felt really good. I actually thought I could get to the middle pretty well, but that changed once we got that going. These guys are incredible with what they do. I love it."

Schatz started 17th in the 30-lap feature, but made quick work of those between him and a podium position. By the 12th lap Schatz skidded through the bottom, passing multiple drivers into fourth. The next lap Schatz made his move for third, getting under quick-timer Brian Brown. Brown won his way through the program, setting the quick time and eventually leading the feature into the green flag.

Within the final 10 laps and one position later, Schatz threatened for first. David Gravel, who took the lead on the fifth lap, maintained the top spot by building speed on the top cushion. Gravel said he felt comfortable "staying on top and running alone," but Schatz began to close the gap with each lap by cutting the corners out of turns three and four; lapped traffic gave Gravel enough real-estate to not alter his line. However with two laps remaining, the two barreled down the front stretch side by side - only for Schatz to catch him in turn one. Gravel said where he saved time with lapped traffic, he ended up giving time back at the end.

"We wanted to win there," Gravel said. "Lapped traffic got us. Sometimes we're better running second. I don't know what I could have done differently, but I did the best I could. Just leading all those laps you want to win."

Despite Gravel's shortcoming, in hindsight he said he had a good week. Having battled through four motor changes - the CJB Motorsports team had to get three more Kistler engines delivered to even be able to run the finale - he still advanced to the Craftsman® Club Dash in both shows. Because of the consistency, Gravel took home the coveted 'Big Gator' trophy, which is awarded to the top performing driver overall.

"We just need to continue to get better and run well," said Gravel, whose focus is helping refresh and replenish his team's inventory.

The series will head West for its annual Kick-off Tour. First, the Outlaws will tackle two Texas tracks from March 3-4: Lonestar Speedway and Gator Motorplex. For more information, visit woosprint.com/kick-off-tour.

Schatz from a Cannon, Reverses his luck to win second DIRTcar Nationals Gator

BARBERSVILLE, Fla. - February 19, 2017 - It's not unusual for two series champions to face-off in the 46th Annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. In the first show of a Sunday double-header, eight-time World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Champion Donny Schatz revisited his fierce battle with Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions titleholder Chad Kemenah. Like the Wednesday night thriller - starting in the first row with Kemenah - Schatz again established himself as the best-of-the-best between the two series.

But it did not come easily for the Fargo, N.D. native, who has now won a DIRTcar Nationals show every year since 2011. On Friday night Schatz finished 14thin the feature, his worst finish since the series opener last season (when he placed 18th). But Schatz said one major adjustment was opting for a harder tire.

"We did make some tire changes today and went with a harder tire," Schatz said. "I think it hurt us early in the race, but they don't pay for the first lap they pay for the last. The driver just showed up today with an attitude. I guess you could say he made all the mistakes in one night (Friday)."

Once the green flag was waved, Schatz overtook Kemenah and extended his lead to nearly one second. Kemenah reclaimed his spot before the race's first caution on the ensuing restart. In the race's most exhilarating exchange, the two danced around each other - inversely switching lines high and low. Schatz was the first to take the lead, wedging his car under Kemenah's in the second turn. Kemenah used the back-stretch to regroup, and butted his left-front tire nearly up against the inside wall in turn three for first position.

On Lap 14, strategy played to Schatz's favor. Schatz made the decision to start on the inside of the race's second caution - as the two made their passes on the bottom earlier. Schatz was successful on the restart. Kemenah dropped off Schatz's pace - nearly two tenths faster than the field with each lap. This left the door open for Friday night's winner Jason Johnson to slip by Kemenah and secure a second-place finish; Kemenah settled for third.

Like Schatz, David Gravel also underwent a roller-coaster of a week. Gravel won Thursday's All-Star finale, but since has blown four motors. Expending his reserve, CJB Motorsports sent for three new motors to be shipped to Volusia. Gravel said race engines "eat dirt every day," so self-inflicted malfunctions are bound to happen.

On his fifth Kistler motor, Gravel turned-around Friday's last place finish by first setting Sunday afternoon's quick time with a 13.453. He carried that momentum to his heat race, doubling on his successes. A small scare in the Craftsman® Club Dash when he got into the turn two wall. Escaping with only minor damage this was the only hiccup Gravel had throughout the show, ultimately collecting his first World of Outlaws top-five performance of the year.

"When that fifth motor is good enough to quick time, it speaks to how good our engine program is," said Gravel, who added that he never lost doubt in his Kistler Engine package. "We never give up. We screwed up a little in the dash, but we just kept looking forward. There's no reason why we can't win tonight."

With the victory, Schatz can become the first Outlaw since Jeff Swindell and Sammy Swindell to win multiple series races in one day. Jeff Swindell first accomplished the one-day sweep at Rolling Wheels (N.Y.) Raceway Park on October 8, 1994. Sammy Swindell matched his younger brothers feat in 1999 at Bloomington Speedway.

Johnson Takes Flight in Outlaws Opener,Wins first career Gator at DIRTcar Nationals

BARBERSVILLE, Fla. - February 17, 2017 - Jason Johnson made a grand entrance into 2017 Friday night, winning the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series opener at the 46th Annual DIRTcar Nationals. Johnson, whose 2016 season was highlighted by a Knoxville Nationals victory, took home his first Gator and a $10,000 purse.

"Yeah, 365 days later we start the season off in the best case scenario," said Johnson, rehashing on his team's troubles last season. "It's a long season, and you need to condition for it. My little [Jaxx] on FaceTime over there... he and my wife mean the world to me, and I wish he could be here for the win. [The win] is huge for our operation, for our team, for the people working on this team and for my self-confidence."

For Johnson's four World of Outlaws wins last season, Johnson brought his son up on stage to wave their index finger in the air symbolizing "No.1." This time Johnson scaled the wing of his No. 41 Priority Aviation Services, LLC/ Mesilla Valley Transportation Maxim car solo, but dropped back down to high-fives and hugs from his crew. Johnson, who was involved in a horrific wreck earlier in the week, opted to withdraw from the All-Star Circuit of Champions finale Thursday night. But one day later, consistently bested a 35 other cars on sprint car racing's biggest stage.

Johnson started on the outside of the first row for the 30-lap feature event. Where he started, is where he stayed. Johnson - continuing to stay on-top of the wheel and high on the track - darted to the front within the first lap. Sweet followed Johnson to the front but from the bottom. The first of three cautions came on the third lap, when David Gravel suffered from more mechanical failures. Notably, Gravel raced nearly 80 races without blowing a motor heading into this year's DIRTcar Nationals. The caution regrouped the field, giving Sweet the opportunity to recreate last season's season opener with a win.

"I'll tell you what, I really thought we were going to have something there for Jason," Sweet said. "I had to [eventually] move to the top but Johnson set a really torrid pace out there. He did it, so hats-off to him. We have two more nights so hopefully we can end up where he is."

Sweet swapped spots with Brian Brown throughout the race, but in the final two laps swiftly moved passed him on the front straightaway. Brown forfeited third to a red-hot Christopher Bell, who rounded-out the podium. Bell not only beat Johnson in the dash, but also set the night's quick time with a 13.121.

"I kind of struggled on starts and restarts there," said Bell, who led the feature field into the green flag. "Mistakes on my part for starts and restarts, but this thing is really fast. It's a great machine to drive. Thank you Tony [Stewart] for letting me come out and have some fun."

From the victory, Johnson leads the points championship for the first time in his career. As Sweet alluded to, Johnson's aggressive driving style opened up the "World's Fastest Half-Mile" for him. Earlier in the program, Johnson qualified third but claimed his stake for a Gator in the third heat. His car weaved in-and-around series newcomer Brent Marks. Though he was in a transfer spot, Johnson did not let off the gas.

He went on to start fourth in the Craftsman Club Dash and finish second after yet another battle - with Brown. Brown's uncle and crew member, 2001 Series Champion Danny Lasoski, is the most winningest sprint car driver at Volusia Speedway Park. He is scheduled to compete predominantly with the Outlaws, though it will not be full-time.

Series veteran Jason Sides set the pace early in the program, recording the quickest time in hot laps of 13.602. Sides went on to set quick-time in qualifying - putting him in position to "Double Down" as his nickname suggests - but the time only stood until Bell knocked him off with 15 drivers remaining. Ultimately, four out of the five top-qualifiers were series regulars. Three regulars finished the night in the Top-five.

David Gravel gets a Gator; wins Arctic Cat All Star DIRTcar Nationals finale at Volusia Speedway Park

BARBERVILLE, FL (February 16, 2017) - For the first time in his young career, Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel is a main event winner in the Sunshine State, capturing the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions DIRTcar Nationals finale at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. The victory, the third of his career during Arctic Cat All Star competition and his first since 2012, was conducted in near-demanding fashion; holding back Donny Schatz and Brad Sweet to lead all 30 circuits around the Volusia Speedway Park half-mile.

“This is definitely awesome,” David Gravel stated in victory lane. “I’ve never got to win in Florida and I’ve never got to win one of these gator trophies, so this is definitely cool. I have to thank all of the guys on the team; Barry, Zack, Derrick, Chad, Jen. They all did a great job preparing these race cars all winter. All of my sponsors; they make all of this possible. We are working for really good things this year, so this is a great start to that.”

Gravel, who started on the outside-front row, wasted no time getting to the front of the field, taking command during the initial drop of the green flag and stretching his early advantage to a near-three second lead. Even with two cautions, traffic coming into play by lap 10, and an abrasive coat of rubber starting to form on the surface of the speedway by lap 15, the pilot of the CJB Motorsports/GoMuddy.com/Big Game Treestands/No. 5 continued to hold his advantage, navigating forward while keeping Donny Schatz at a distance.

“[Donny Schatz] is definitely the best, so anytime you have an opportunity to beat him is a great thing,” Gravel stated. “The rubber started to come into play, so I had a little bit of an advantage at the end of the race. I was trying not to miss my marks while racing through traffic. I wanted to take my time and make sure I didn’t slip my tires. Our tires just made it, so thank goodness for that.”

With his second place performance, Donny Schatz, pilot of the familiar Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Arctic Cat/No. 15, will end his Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Florida campaign with three victories and two runner-up finishes.

“We are happy with that,” Donny Schatz said regarding his Arctic Cat All Star performances in Florida. “The track kinda caught us off guard here tonight. I really didn’t expect it to take rubber like that, but it did, so it kinda set us up for a difficult second-half of the race. That’s the way it goes some days. This Arctic Cat team does a phenomenal job. I think we would rather have five victories during the last week, but who wouldn’t.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will enjoy a seven week hiatus before returning to competition on Saturday evening, April 8, at the Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio. “America’s Series” hosted competition at the southern Ohio highbanks on two separate occasions in 2016; once during Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket, and once again on October 22 during the Arctic Cat All Star championship weekend. NASCAR Cup star Kyle Larson earned the speedweek victory, with Wooster, Ohio’s Sheldon Haudenschild taking high honors on championship weekend.

Donny Schatz holds back Kyle Larson for DIRTcar Nationals win against Arctic Cat All Stars

BARBERVILLE, FL (February 15, 2017) - For the third time in his last four attempts, and for the 16th time in his career, Donny Schatz is an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner, this time during night two of the 46th edition of the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park. The victory, a mere .113 second advantage at the final checkers, came over Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson; the main event’s 15th starter who charged to second in 30 circuits aboard a second Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing entry.

“This is all because of this race team,” Donny Schatz explained in Volusia Speedway Park victory lane. “I’ve been racing with these guys for a long time; Ricky [Warner] and I have been together for nearly 10 years. This is not something that is built overnight. They work their tails off and do an incredible job. We never fail to learn from our mistakes and I learn from mine. We have Mark Miller from Arctic Cat with us here tonight, so we want to wish him the best. We’re glad to have him here to see a victory. He missed a few last weekend, but this is a great way to start the new week.”

Chad Kemenah jumped to the early advantage from the outside of the front row, utilizing the very topside of the Volusia Speedway Park half-mile to officially lead lap one over pole sitter Donny Schatz and fourth starting Brad Sweet. By lap five, Kemenah’s advantage stretched to nearly three seconds, catching the tail of the field for the first time on lap six. Schatz allowed traffic to work to his advantage, slowly erasing all of Kemenah’s lead by lap ten and taking command for the first time on lap 14.

The main event’s first of two red flag incidents appeared on lap 17 involving Brownsburg, Indiana’s Joey Saldana and Eunice, Louisiana’s Jason Johnson, each racing in reach of a podium position at the time of the caution. Saldana and Johnson, who started sixth and tenth on the main event grid, commenced a three car battle for second with Chad Kemenah on lap 16, only to make contact the following circuit. Although unable to return to the speedway, Saldana and Johnson walked away unharmed.

Green flag action returned to the speedway for two circuits before the main event’s second and final red flag appeared on lap 20, this time for Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks. Like Saldana and Johnson, Marks walked away unharmed, but was unable to return to action.

A caution on lap 22 would halt the feature field for the final time, giving Donny Schatz an open track and clean air. In the meantime, Larson, aboard the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/No. 14, was already in striking distance; taking advantage of all three cautions to inch himself forward to third in the running order. By lap 28, Larson moved by Chad Kemenah for second, resetting his focus toward the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Arctic Cat/Ford Performance/No. 15 of Donny Schatz.

“I couldn’t feel anybody coming. It’s not my job to pay attention to what is behind me,” Donny Schatz explained in victory lane. “Somebody had to be coming. That’s what racers do and Kyle [Larson] is a great racer. He’s an aggressive racer and that helped put him in the position that he was in. I know he’s driving a really good race car, so that obviously helps, too.”

With slower traffic blocking Schatz's momentum, one final lunge on lap 30 would put Kyle Larson on the back bumper of the North Dakota native, ultimately racing through the final corner nearly side-by-side. Schatz would hang on to win by .113 seconds, followed by Kyle Larson, Chad Kemenah, Daryn Pittman, and Brad Sweet.

“I was coming up on traffic and I couldn’t get off the top,” Schatz said. “I tried to slide the lapped car in the last corner, but he ended up finding some speed somewhere and kept himself going. That forced me to kinda go back to the top and park myself there.”

For Larson, it was his first-ever appearance at Volusia Speedway Park, as well as his first time in the cockpit of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/No. 14.

“Tonight was a lot of fun,” Kyle Larson explained. “I had a decent start and was able to get in line right away. I made up most of my time down the straightaways and was able to slide people through the corners, then get going back the other direction. That was the biggest key to me moving forward. I can’t thank Tony Stewart and everyone on this team enough. I called Tony today and told him I was going to put my seat in his car and race since Christopher Bell couldn’t make it. It all worked out great.”

Tony Stewart’s Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their 2017 tour of the Sunshine State on Thursday evening, February 16, with the second of two DIRTcar Nationals programs at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. “America’s Series” will once again battle for a $5,000 top prize during their Volusia County takeover; the fifth and final Florida appearance for the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions in 2017.

Eight-time World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz is the defending Thursday night winner with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions at Volusia Speedway Park, holding off Hartford, Ohio’s Dale Blaney and eventual Knoxville Nationals champion Jason Johnson for the four-digit payday on Thursday, February 11, 2016.

MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES FINALIZES 2017 RULES AND ANNOUNCES SEASON
SPONSORS AT PRE-SEASON MEETING

Penndel, Pa. February 12, 2017 ..... With the first race of the season only seventy-six days away, officials and members of the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series gathered at the Penndel Fire Hall in Penndel, PA for a pre-season meeting to go over rules and policies that will be enforced and followed during the 2017 season.

“After today’s meeting, with everyone’s thoughts and concerns being heard, we tied up a few loose ends concerning handicapping, a points structure and visitor policy, as well as other issues mentioned during the meeting,” Regional Director Eddie Wagner commented. “Our final rule book will be updated and released by the end of this week, in time for everyone to review them and prepare for our season opener at Bridgeport on April 30th”.

Handicapping for the heat races will be determined by a pill draw for a starting position at the beginning of every night. Only MASS members will be included in this pill draw, with “visitors” having to start in the back their assigned heat race. Features will be inverted or re-drawn, depending on a pill which will be pulled by the winner of the first heat race. Pills will be determined by the number of heats, so if there are three heat races, pills that can be possibly drawn are two REDRAW pills, and pills marked 1-9. “Visitors” who qualify into the feature can be included in feature handicapping, but they will not be able to start any better than fifth place.

Non-members will also not be eligible for contingency prizes given out throughout the night, and will only be subjected to receive the advertised purse.

“Regarding the points policy, it was voted that we follow the IMCA National Points, with it being our primary points standings for the season,” Wagner said. “The IMCA points standing is universal amongst all Racesaver divisions nation-wide, and in order to not to put ourselves in a situation we had last season with having two separate points champions, I think this will make it easier, and worthwhile as IMCA has lots of positive benefits including a cash points fund and a chance to become a National Champion”. With the IMCA benefits, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series also will be adding multiple year end bonuses for teams who are members with the series, including cash collected from the weekly 50/50 drivers fund, and contingencies provided by marketing partners including a brand new DMI 305 XR3 Bulldog rear, a custom helmet paint job to the points champion courtesy of JLD Graphics, and brand new Engler Tool & Machine
injection to name a few.

The IMCA points schedule begins on January 1st, and ends on September 25th. All races scheduled during the points season will be points races, including co-sanctioned races with PASS, but not including the Blue Collar Classics at Port Royal on April 22nd and October 7th, and three races on MASS’ schedule on October 14th (Grandview), October 26th (Georgetown) and November 4th (Bridgeport).

“For those year end races, we are planning something big for the final three shows that will make it appealing for teams to come out and race. Grandview, Georgetown and Bridgeport have graciously included us in their season finale races that are prestigious and popular to the fans, so we want to make sure that we represent ourselves well while showing our appreciation to the promoters who welcomed us aboard this season,” MASS General Manager Jeff Geiges stated.

Finally, at the end of the meeting, Geiges revealed that Engler Tool & Machine came on board as the series title sponsor. “We a very proud and excited to announce this, and we want to thank and welcome Engler to the MASS family,” Geiges said.

Engler Tool & Machine is supplying a brand new injection to raffled off, which is valued roughly at $3800 and six $100 certificates, which will be handed out on three of the scheduled sponsored Engler Tool & Machine race nights.

Other contingency sponsors who have joined the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series in 2017 are DMI,
Mach 1 Chassis, JLD Graphics, Thayer Performance Engines and Parts, Bitner Automotive, Bruce’s Auto Body, Todd’s Performance, Geiswite Creations, ERK Steering, Competition Suspension Inc., Kelly Racing Fuels and Tanner Brothers Dairy Farm and Store.

“I have been racing with the 305 Sprint Cars ever since they started back in 2010, and I have to say, the amount of time and effort that MASS is putting into making this series work, and everything that they are giving back to the drivers makes racing exciting again,” Stefanie Palmai Carberry stated post meeting. “This fresh new start is just what we needed, and I can only hope that in return, new teams will start coming to race with us, and hopefully, we can get back to the high car counts that we had a few years ago”.

Kerry Madsen stops the sweep at Bubba Raceway Park; wins Arctic Cat All Star Winter Nationals finale in Ocala, Florida

OCALA, FL (February 11, 2017) - In front of a near-standing room only turnout, “The Madman” Kerry Madsen ended all possibility for a “Schatz Sweep” during the Sixth Annual Winter Nationals at Bubba Raceway Park; driving around the Fargo, North Dakota, native with just six laps remaining to solidify his place on top of the feature podium. The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions victory, his first podium finish of the Winter Nationals triple-header at Bubba Raceway Park, was the seventh of Madsen’s career, earning $5,000 in the process.

“This thing has been a rocket ship right from the drop of the gate,” Kerry Madsen explained, pilot of the GoMuddy.com/Big Game Treestands/No. 2M. “My guys, Guy and Nate, did a great job all winter prepping these race cars and getting everything set for Florida. It feels awesome to be this fast right from the start. We were so close on Thursday, so this definitely makes up for that. I can’t thank Todd and Luke enough for this opportunity. Hopefully they were tuned-in back in Minnesota and got to see this.”

Madsen never raced outside of the top-three the entire 30-lap distance, starting third initially and racing in that same position until just beyond the halfway signal. The St. Mary’s, New South Wales, Australia, native worked around the CJB Motorsports entry of David Gravel for second on lap 16, resetting his sights on back-to-back Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event winner Donny Schatz.

By lap 20, traffic started to intensify, allowing Madsen to cut away at Schatz’s one second advantage at the front of the field. The pair raced nearly nose-to-tail until Madsen made the winning move at the entrance of turn one on lap 24, taking command for the first time during the main event. Madsen would race ahead untouched the remaining distance, holding off a late charge by Donny Schatz and Tim Shaffer at the final checkers, each celebrating a third consecutive podium finish.

“We ended up cutting a tire somewhere around four or five laps to go in that race” Donny Schatz explained, pilot of the Tony Stewart Racing/Arctic Cat/No. 15. “My late model experience actually helped me get through those last five laps. I was able to keep the car straight and hang on to that position. It is a tough deal, but we’ll move on and try again at Volusia.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will enjoy three days in the Florida sun before returning to competition on Wednesday evening, February 15, at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. “America’s Series” will take center stage at the Florida speed plant for two consecutive nights of competition; two of five total sprint car appearances during the 2017 DIRTcar Nationals schedule. The back-to-back Volusia Speedway Park appearances will each award $5,000 top prizes.
