In an effort to advance the sport of sprint car racing, constituents from across the country representing sanctioning bodies, tracks, car owners, chassis builders and drivers have announced the formation of a sprint car council. It is believed to be the first of its kind in the sprint car industry.

The intent and purpose of the council is to improve communication among all constituents in the sprint car industry. The council will work together, focusing on car and track safety initiatives, improving consistency in rules, maintaining costs, enforcing suspensions across all tracks and series, and advancing the holistic improvement of sprint car racing for drivers, team owners, series, tracks and fans.

The council will not act as a governing body. The decision to adjust rules, adapt safety measures, enforce suspensions or otherwise will ultimately be decided at the respective series, track and car owner level.

“Many people in the industry are aware that we had a vision and goal to assemble a council when we met in August during the Knoxville Nationals,” said Tony Stewart, who represents the All Star Circuit of Champions as a series owner. “I am extremely excited about the enthusiasm and participation from our members. This is a great opportunity for all of us to improve sprint car racing for years to come.”

The council will represent individuals from tracks and series representing all geographical areas of the United States. Such individuals will actively participate in sub-councils which will focus on the following disciplines: track safety, car/chassis safety, aerodynamics and forward-looking rules changes.

“Since 1978, the World of Outlaws has been a leader in sprint car racing, and we are pleased to expand on that role with the sprint car council,” said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. “Going back 10 years with our stakeholders group, the World of Outlaws has strived to bring the industry closer and to strengthen the foundation of sprint car racing while keeping an eye toward the future. We hope through the sprint car council all the parties can learn from each other to continue enhancing the sport we all love.”

The council will meet four times per year, at a minimum, with to-be-determined dates in February, August, November and December.

Participating members of the council include: All Star Circuit of Champions, American Sprint Car Series (ASCS), Attica Raceway Park, BAPS Motor Speedway, Barry Jackson (crew chief CJB Motorsports and chassis builder), Daryn Pittman (driver), Empire Super Sprints (ESS), IRA Sprints, Jackson Motorplex, John Darby (consultant), Kevin Nouse (PA 358 Sprints), Knoxville Raceway, Lincoln (PA) Speedway, Mark Chevalier (team owner and engineer), Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA), National Sprint League (NSL), Ryan Hand (former crew chief), Paul McMahan (driver), Port Royal Speedway, POWRi, POWRi WAR Sprint Car League, Skagit Speedway, Upper Midwest Sprint Series (UMSS), United States Auto Club (USAC), WI MSA 360 sprints, World Of Outlaws and Williams Grove Speedway.

Music to Our Ears! Outlaws Invading Nashville in 2019
Inaugural Music City Outlaw Nationals Will See Dirt Go Down May 31-June 1 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway

CONCORD, NC – November 14, 2018 – Many outlaws have crossed through the Nashville music scene over the years, but for the first time in history the World of Outlaws and their 900 horsepower Sprint Cars will crank up the volume on May 31 and June 1 in Music City.

The quarter-mile track at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway will be covered in dirt for the inaugural Music City Outlaw Nationals, one of Sprint Car Racing’s biggest weekends next season paying $15,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start on Friday, May 31, and $25,000-to-win and $1,500-to-start on Saturday, June 1.

Along with the City of Nashville and the World of Outlaws, Brewco Marketing Group and Motorsports Strategy Group are key partners in bringing the World of Outlaws to Nashville.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with World Racing Group to host the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series in Nashville for the Music City Outlaw Nationals,” said Todd Wilkerson of Brewco Marketing Group, co-promoter of the event with Jason Rittenberry of Motorsports Strategy Group. “Dirt Track Racing as a whole is on a huge upswing right now and the World of Outlaws are at the center of that popularity increase. Our group is excited to bring this motorsports and music weekend to the Music City.”

The on-track action will no doubt be the center of attention, but an event of this magnitude in Music City USA can’t go off without a concert, too, creating a can’t-miss weekend of music on the track and off.

“The World of Outlaws puts on more than 90 exhilarating events throughout the year, but the Music City Outlaw Nationals is going to be special,” World of Outlaws COO Tom Deery said. “This will be the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series only visit to Tennessee and what better place than right in the heart of one of the country’s most vibrant cities. We are looking forward to working with the City of Nashville and the Nashville Convention and Visitors bureau to bring exciting motorsports events to the Music City. This is the ultimate destination event for teams, fans and sponsors that we envision evolving into our sport’s marquee events.”

The proven track crew that delivers 12 consecutive nights of DIRTcar Nationals action in February at Volusia Speedway Park, breathtaking Super DIRT Week racing in October at Oswego Speedway, and championship-level moments at the World Finals in November at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, will be in charge of transforming Nashville’s paved quarter-mile track into a dirt venue where the Outlaw stars can showcase slide jobs and wheel-to-wheel, high-speed thrills.

“Having dirt and the World of Outlaws in Nashville at the historic Fairgrounds Speedway is something we have been looking forward to, and we anticipate some heart-pounding racing from the stars and cars of The Greatest Show on Dirt,” added Rittenbery. Included in bringing the Outlaws to Nashville will be improved fencing and raised walls to ensure the facility is in perfect shape for the Music City Outlaw Nationals. Thursday, May 30 Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway will be available for practice for teams wishing to dial in their setup around the ¼-mile bullring.

Tickets to the inaugural Music City Outlaw Nationals are available today! As always, if you can’t make it to the track watch every lap LIVE on DIRTVision.com!

Winner Donny Schatz (Dave Biro Photo)

Schatz Wins Thriller From 10th in 2018 Season Finale at Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC – November 3, 2018 – In fitting fashion, Donny Schatz came from 10th at The Dirt Track at Charlotte to win the final night of the World Finals presented by Can-Am. Schatz wrapped up his 10th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Championship on Thursday. Logan Schuchart, who exchanged slide jobs with Schatz coming to the White Flag, settled for second with ninth-starting Brad Sweet completing the podium.

Spencer Bayston, in search of his first career World of Outlaws win, won the Sears Craftsman Dash, earning the pole for the 30-lap Feature alongside Carson Macedo, who won the second Dash.

It was Macedo, who will join the Outlaws full-time with Kyle Larson Racing in 2019, getting the jump on the initial start to lead the opening circuit. Bayston remained in tow as fifth-starting Logan Schuchart darted to third on the second lap.

Schuchart, who came from 20th to complete the podium Saturday afternoon, took second from Bayston on Lap 8 and set his eyes on Macedo.

Schuchart went for the lead on Lap 9 with a big slide job in turn four, but Macedo powered around the Shark Racing No.1S. Schuchart took the lead on Lap 11 with a slide job in turn two but once again Macedo was ready with a slide job of his own out of turn four to lead the lap.

Jason Sides brought out the first caution of the event on Lap 14. Schatz, who started 10th, went from sixth to fourth on the restart before Sheldon Haudenschild slowed on the following lap.

On that restart Schatz maneuvered by Bayston and Schuchart for the runner-up position and began closing in on Macedo.

Macedo set a strong pace and looked poised out front in his second night racing for KLR but it was not meant to be as a flat right rear tire sent the Lemoore, CA native into the wall with 23 laps complete.

Schatz inherited the lead, but his job was far from done as a determined Schuchart stayed right with the Champion on the restart. As Schuchart closed in on Schatz, the sellout crowd roared in anticipation of an upset victory.

With two laps remaining, Schuchart pulled the big slide job through turn one and two but Schatz returned the favor on the other end to remain in command coming to the White Flag.

A last-ditch effort from Schuchart came up just short as Schatz went on to win his 22nd Feature of the season.

When asked about the pace set by young guns Macedo and Schuchart, Schatz said, “The sport’s pretty damn bright. Even the old guys can still get it done.”

“Hats off to my guys, they have worked their butts off all season. I’m the hardest guy in the pits to work for because if it’s not perfect, I’m not happy,” Schatz said with a smile next to his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing No.15. “These guys do an excellent job night in and night out. I felt great on that restart with seven to go and I knew it would take someone with a lot of speed to stay with me and sure enough here comes the 1S.”

Before celebrating his victory, Schatz showed true sportsmanship going over and congratulating Schuchart on a great, clean race.

“I knew it was going to be tough to beat him. I had one shot and couldn’t make it stick but it is great to be able to have a good, clean race with the 10-time Champion,” Schuchart said.

When asked about the progress of Shark Racing, who just secured Drydene Performance as a title sponsor, Schuchart couldn’t help but get emotional, “We have grown tremendously, and it all starts with [Bobby Allen]. I’m so proud to be his grandson,” Schuchart said to a huge ovation.

Brad Sweet clawed his way forward from ninth to finish on the podium. “We’ve been in the hunt all year long. It was a great season and it was nice to end on the podium,” Sweet, who enjoyed a career-best season, said.

Tim Shaffer finished fourth, his second top-five of the day, with 11th-starting Gio Scelzi completing the top-five.Kraig Kinser earned KSE Hard Charger honors, advancing 13 positions after taking a Provisional.

The 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 40th Anniversary officially comes to an end tomorrow evening with the Awards Banquet. DIRTVision.com will be live streaming both the Sprint Car and Late Model banquets for free.

Ian Madsen Gets First Win of Season During Saturday Afternoon Portion of World Finals at Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC – November 3, 2018 – Australian Ian Madsen will be named the 2018 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year and accentuated that honor with his first World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature win of the year Saturday afternoon during World Finals presented by Can-Am action at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Tim Shaffer surged late to finish second with 20th-starting Logan Schuchart completing the podium.

Tim Shaffer and Aaron Reutzel led the field to Green on the daytime dry, slick racing surface but it was Madsen taking control off of turn four to lead the opening lap.

Shane Stewart, who started beside Madsen in row two, found speed on the cushion blasting to the lead on Lap 5.

It’s no secret it’s been a challenging year for Shane Stewart and that continued Saturday afternoon as a flat tire on the Kyle Larson Racing No.2 on Lap 13 summarized their 2018 season.

Madsen inherited the lead for the double-file restart, but all eyes were on 20th-starting Logan Schuchart and 17th-starting Greg Wilson who made their way into the top-five before the half-way point.

The ensuing restart saw Brian Brown go for a vicious ride through turn one and two. Brown was uninjured in the accident.

When action resumed, Wilson and Schuchart jockeyed for the runner-up position as they both reeled in the KCP Racing No.18.

With Madsen out front, Wilson glued to the bottom and Schuchart banging down the cushion, the capacity crowd at The Dirt Track at Charlotte roared with excitement as they nearly went 3-wide for the lead.

With five laps remaining a caution for Brent Marks halted the torrid battle for the lead with Madsen out front followed by Schuchart and Wilson. The single-file restart gave Schuchart the opportunity to set up a pass for the lead, but Madsen powered away convincingly

Tim Shaffer reclaimed third from Wilson before the Red Flag flew for Parker Price-Miller, who tipped lightly on his side, with three laps remaining.

With one last restart, Schuchart again looked to the bottom side for the lead but brushed off his speed and allowed Tim Shaffer to regain second as Ian Madsen went on to win his third career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Feature.

“This is an awesome feeling. We’ve been coming to this event every year and it keeps getting bigger and bigger. It’s awesome to be a part of the World Finals,” a relieved Madsen said.

“Day-time racing is tricky, especially when the preferred racing line kept changing. I saw Logan behind me and I know he’s particularly good on these type of race tracks,” the Australian added before thanking his KCP Racing Team and saying hello to all of his family, friends and car owner, who are scattered around the world.

Tim Shaffer and 20th-starting Schuchart completed the podium. Shaffer found speed late, said he wished there were 10 more laps and referenced how strong he felt when he pulled the wing all the way back.

Schuchart, who earned KSE Hard Charger honors, emphasized that he wanted to get the win for Drydene Performance, who announced Thursday a multi-year partnership with both Shark Racing cars and the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

12th-starting Spencer Bayston charged to fourth with Greg Wilson fading late, but still officially being scored with a strong 17th to fifth run.

Afternoon Rain and Track Curfew Force Friday’s World Finals Features to Saturday Afternoon

CHARLOTTE, NC – November 2, 2018 – Heavy afternoon rain and a midnight curfew at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway allowed the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, Late Model Series and Super DIRTcar Series to get everything in except the Features on Night Two of the World Finals presented by Can-Am. Friday's Super DIRTcar Series Feature will take place Saturday afternoon at 1:30 with the Late Model and Sprint Car Features to follow. Saturday’s portion of the event will kick-off with Opening Ceremonies at 4:45pm.

Paige Polyak, Tim Shaffer, Ian Madsen, Aaron Reutzel, Spencer Bayston and David Gravel won the six World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Heat Races before Gerard McIntyre won the C Main and fast timer Parker Price-Miller won the Last Chance Showdown.

Shaffer and Reutzel drew the pole and won their respective Sears Craftsman Dashes to earn the front row for the 30-lap, $12,000 to win, $1,000 to start Feature. Shaffer will look for his first Outlaw triumph of the season while Reutzel will be in search of his second, after scoring his first career World of Outlaws win at Tulare in March.

Ian Madsen and Shane Stewart will occupy the second row. Madsen, who will be crowned 2018 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year, would love nothing more to accentuate that honor with his first win of the season. Stewart’s five-year tenure with Kyle Larson Racing will come to a close tomorrow and a victory would be a strong ending to a challenging year.

David Gravel entered the evening 24 points ahead of Daryn Pittman for third in the Series Point Standings. Gravel was strong winning his Heat Race and will lineup 10th, while Pittman struggled and was forced to use a Provisional, meaning he will start 25th.

The 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 40th Anniversary Season will come to a close tomorrow at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway with the conclusion of the World Finals presented by Can-Am. Saturday’s portion of the event will kick-off with Opening Ceremonies at 4:45pm. Watch every lap of the double-header tomorrow LIVE on DIRTVision.com!
