A ROYAL WIN: Donny Schatz cuts points deficit down to 8 points with Port Royal win
Schatz’s 11th win of the season helped cut Brad Sweet’s points lead down by 24 points

PORT ROYAL, PA – Oct. 26, 2019 – Donny Schatz has spoken modestly about this year’s dramatic points battle with Brad Sweet. However, his on-track performance shouts anecdotes about it every race night.

Friday night at Port Royal Speedway it shouted load enough to capture everyone’s attention.

Schatz won his 11th World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory of the year, his third consecutive Series win at Port Royal Speedway and decimated Sweet’s points lead over him by 24 points due to Sweet finishing 12th – now Schatz is only eight points behind Sweet with three races to go.

“We just got to focus on what we do,” a modest Schatz said in Victory Lane. “There isn’t anything I can do to effect what he does. We never won a championship worrying about who we’re racing against or what they were doing. Obviously, what these (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys are doing is working. They made all of the right changes to the car.”

The Fargo, N.D. driver has been the king of the “Speed Palace” ever since the World of Outlaws returned to the half-mile track in 2014. Since then Schatz has yet to finish worse than third.

He started the night in dominant fashion by winning his Drydene Heat race and the first DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

When the 30-lap Feature for the first night of the Nittany Showdown went green Schatz was a rocket. He launched ahead of the field from his pole position and held the top spot into turn one. Brian Brown was in hot pursuit behind him, though.

While Schatz ran low for the first lap, Brown ran high. The FVP No. 21 built momentum and speed around the top, charging to Schatz’s rear bumper off each corner. Brown eyed an opening to the outside of Schatz off turn four, but the 10-time Series champion slammed the door shut before Brown could sneak his bumper between him and the wall.

Schatz then moved to the middle of the track and began to pull away from Brown. Behind the top-two Aaron Reutzel had charged from sixth to third on the first lap.

The Toco Warranty No. 15 was in lap traffic by Lap eight, but the slower cars did little to slow Schatz down.

The battle for second heated up near the midway point with Reutzel putting pressure on Brown and eventually darting underneath him for second on Lap 12. However, a red flag for Danny Dietrich hitting the wall in turn two came out before the lap was completed and Brown held second.

On the restart Schatz, again, bolted ahead of the field and Anthony Macri charged to third with Reutzel having a bad start.

While Schatz pulled away with the lead, Macri grew faster as the race progressed. He passed Brown for second with five laps to go and reeled in Schatz. Time was not in his favor, though. The Dillsburg, Pa. driver had to settle for second – his first World of Outlaws top-five finish – with Schatz a car length away. Brown rounded out the podium in third.

“The car was pretty solid all night long,” Macri said. “About halfway through the Feature I could pretty much put the car wherever I wanted. That’s always nice. This thing was operating smooth tonight.”

Schatz’s win was his 294th career Series victory and the second win in two weeks for the new Ford FPS 410 engine. The new engine’s capabilities were put to the test in the 30-lap Feature with fuel a potential issue.

“Thirty laps around this place with the way the conditions are was going to be questionable on fuel,” Schatz said. “They said, ‘Hey, you might want to conserve a little bit.’ I don’t know how much fuel we have left, but we made it. That’s the important part. Just the nature of the beast. These things pump a lot of fuel through them, a lot of air. We got a little extra air and fuel tonight with the Ford. Hats off to those guys. It’s been a fun project.”

Sweet was able to race from 18th to 12th on the fast track surface Friday night, but his performance wasn’t enough to withstand Schatz’s dominating run. The final night of the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday will be Sweet and Schatz’s last chance to have the points lead before the final two races of the year at the World Finals in November.

“We’re running out of races to win, so it’s good to get one tonight,” Schatz said.

STORYBOOK CLASSIC: David Gravel wins Jason Johnson Classic
Gravel wins at Lake Ozark Speedway, his 10th win of the year with Jason Johnson Racing

ELDON, MO – Oct. 19, 2019 – Jason Johnson had a black book of goals he’d like to accomplish. One was to promote a race.

On Saturday night at Lake Ozark Speedway it was checked off Johnson's list. His widow, Bobbi Johnson, promoted the Jason Johnson Classic with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

The event started with rain but had a storybook ending.

Like a wave rising in the ocean before crashing down, the sea of people filling the grandstands simultaneously rose to their feet and applauded as David Gravel piloted the Jason Johnson Racing No. 41 car to Victory Lane.

Family, friends and team members – all with smiles and some with tears – flooded Victory Lane to congratulate Gravel and Johnson on the victory – reminiscent of Gravel’s Knoxville Nationals win in August.

“Just couldn’t have been a better night,” said a jubilated Gravel. “We’ve had two weeks this year that are storybook weeks. To get this done and win tonight… it might look like it’s fixed, but it isn’t. Sheldon (Haudenschild) made me work for that race.”

The Watertown, Conn. driver was fast all night, winning his Drydene Heat race – holding off a hard charging Haudenschild to do so – and finishing fourth in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash – won by Jason Sides, who also held off Haudenschild for the win.

When the 41-lap Feature when green Sides rocketed ahead of the field and threw his King Racing Products No. 7S car to the high side. He committed to the line in his pursuit for the win. If someone was going to pass him the bottom was their only option.

Haudenschild followed in line with Sides, riding the high side, trying to hunt him down. Behind them, Gravel worked his way by Brian Brown for third on Lap two and reeled in the top two every lap.

Sides got loose off turn two on Lap seven, allowing Haudenschild to close to his tail tank and Gravel to charge toward them both.

When the trio reached turn three Gravel slung his Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 41 car to the bottom of the track, sliding by Haudenschild and Sides for the lead. Gravel powered in front of them off turn four to officially take the lead on Lap eight, while Haudenschild also snuck by Sides to take second.

The battle was now Gravel versus Haudenschild. Both favored the cushion around the 1/3-mile speedway. Haudenschild’s NOS Energy Drink No. 17 was utilizing it better, though. He caught Gravel on Lap 14 and dove underneath him in turn three to steal the lead away from him.

Haudenschild led the next 11 laps, with Gravel keeping pressure from behind, before a caution spoiled the Wooster, Ohio driver’s night.

On the restart with 17 laps to go Haudenschild slid over the cushion in turn two and Gravel pounced. He charged underneath Haudenschild down the backstretch and sailed his car into turn three, gapping Haudenschild by two car lengths.

“Being on the outside I kind of pinched him (Haudenschild) a little bit,” Gravel said. “You’ve got to do those things to win races. I think I just had a little bit of an advantage on him on the double-file restart and was able to get the lead.”

Haudenschild kept Gravel in sight for the rest of the race but wasn’t able to put together another strong enough run to catch him.

“I would have liked to have raced in traffic a little bit more,” Haudenschild said. “I think it mixes it up and made a little bit more possibilities. When we were in clean air we were just ripping around there and waiting until we got traffic to get anything.”

Logan Schuchart had his own exciting race, charging from 11th to third – his second podium finish in-a-row.

“There in the beginning it was pretty interesting, we were battling back there with Brad (Sweet) and Donny (Schatz). That’s something you don’t want to get in between,” Schuchart said. “It was a good race. We were able to get up there on some restarts, pass some cars when we needed to.”

Sweet and Schatz – who are first and second, respectively, in the championship points ­­– battled around each other most of the night. Sweet had the better night, racing from 12th to fourth, while Schatz raced from 14th to eighth. Sweet is now 32 points ahead of Schatz with only four races left this season – only two before the World Finals.

Gravel’s win was his 10th of the year – first at Lake Ozark Speedway – and 49th career World of Outlaws win.

With Gravel and Schatz having 10 wins and Sweet having 16, it’s the first time since 2000 that there are at least three drivers with 10 or more wins in the Series.

“To hit double digits this year is great,” Gravel said about his win total. “It’s a hard feat to do on the World of Outlaws tour. For us to do that, it feels awesome.

“This is for Jason’s family. Put a smile on their faces tonight and hopefully for the whole week coming up."

Bobbi Johnson called Gravel and the JJR team a “dream team” with how well they have meshed this year and the success they’ve had. Their victory helped put a period on the storybook ending for the inaugural Jason Johnson Classic – a big goal checked off Jason’s list.

“Tomorrow when you sit back and realize and think about all of the man hours and all of the time and all of the help and preparation, there’s a whole team that put on this deal and stood behind me,” Johnson said. “Just to feel like I checked off one of Jason’s things he always wanted to do… he had a black book and there’s a couple of things in there that’s not checked off, so that’s what I’m trying to do next.”

UP NEXT:

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday, Oct. 25, and Saturday, Oct. 26, will be at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pa. for the Nittany Showdown.

VICTORIOUS ONCE AGAIN: Donny Schatz wins with Ford at Lakeside Speedway, cuts into points lead
Schatz puts a Ford powered World of Outlaws Sprint Car back in Victory Lane for the first time in 21 years

KANSAS CITY, KS – Oct. 18, 2019 – When Ford wanted to win Le Mans against the unstoppable Ferrari team it turned to legendary car designer Carroll Shelby, his team and his ace driver Ken Miles to get the job done.

Spoiler: They won.

A similar mentality was used when Ford wanted to return to Sprint Car racing with a new 410 engine, after a more than 20-year absence in the sport. It turned to NASCAR champion Tony Stewart, his team and his ace driver Donny Schatz.

Friday night at Lakeside Speedway, for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown, Schatz brought a Ford powered World of Outlaws Sprint Car back to Victory Lane for the first time since August 26, 1998 when Jeff Swindell won at Southern Oregon Speedway.

It was the new Ford FPS 410 engine’s third appearance in the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series – Schatz finished on the podium in his first two races with it.

“It’s pretty rewarding,” said Schatz about winning with the new Ford engine. “Sometimes you have to do things in life that are off the beaten path. That’s what this whole program is. They got a lot of dedication to it. Tony (Stewart) does. And what Tony asks us to do we do. Here we are.

“Rick (Warner, Schatz’s former crew chief who helped develop the FPS 410) has put a lot of time and blood and sweat and countless sleepless nights on it and to bring it out and to have two podiums at Williams Grove and a win tonight is huge… It’s going to be a live and learn experience. Tonight, it was a live on it. The next night we might be learning. But they did a great job and that’s what we’re here to do, have fun and win races with it.”

Schatz and his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing had to fight for the win all night. He finished second in his Drydene Heat race to Logan Schuchart, who was about half of a second faster than everyone else. Schatz then finished fifth in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and had to change a motor after.

The motor wasn’t at fault for the change, Schatz said. It wasn’t sealed properly and leaked oil.

With a new FPS 410 installed for the Feature, Schatz put its full potential on display throughout the 30 laps.

The beginning of the race was plagued with multiple cautions for accidents and poor restarts. Brian Brown, in the FVP No. 21 car, led the field through it all. Daryn Pittman, David Gravel, Logan Schuchart, Brad Sweet and Donny Schatz battled amongst themselves for position in the short runs between cautions.

Schatz made his way from fifth to second by Lap 10.

A reg flag for Matt Juhl flipping on Lap 12 brought out an Open Red, allowing teams to fuel their cars and make adjustments.

When the Feature when back green Schatz didn’t waste time testing the limits of his new engine to pass Brown for the lead.

Brown hung on to the high side of the track through turns one and two, while Schatz searched for grip low. What he found allowed him to hammer the throttle and exit the corner side-by-side with Brown.

They drag raced down the backstretch and remained in line through turns three and four. However, Brown couldn’t match the lightspeed launch Schatz got off turn four. The Toco Warranty No. 15 shot to the lead on Lap 13.

Brown, of Grain Valley, Mo., was hungry for another hometown win, though. Continuing to favor the top line, he built momentum off turn two and charged to the outside of Schatz down the backstretch. They again raced side-by-side through turns three and four, but the FPS 410 continued to conjure remarkable speed off the corner.

Schatz took the lead and ran away with it. He found himself more than a second ahead of Brown a few laps after passing him.

Schuchart eventually charged his way to second by Lap 20 and Sweet moved into third by Lap 27. Time was running out to catch Schatz, though. Lap traffic became a factor in the closing laps, but before either driver could try to use it to their advantage a caution came out for Ian Madsen slowing in turn four.

When the green flag flew again, Schatz was gone. The 10-time Series champion sprinted away from the field and had almost a second lead over Schuchart when he crossed the finish line.

“I would’ve liked to see what would have happened if we kept going or had some lap traffic,” Schuchart said. “This is a great team. An awesome year. We would’ve liked to have gotten the win… But still a great night.”

Sweet’s third-place finish allowed Schatz to chip away at his points lead. The Fargo, N.D. driver is now 24 points behind Sweet, of Grass Valley, Calif., with five races left this season – three before the World Finals in November.

“We’re happy with a podium run,” Sweet said. “We were just a little bit off and fighting a few things. We’ll take a podium with the NAPA Auto Parts car and move on to tomorrow night.”

Schatz’s victory was his 10th of the year – 293rd career Series win – and first win in almost a month.

“These guys, it’s incredible what they do,” Schatz said about his team. “The race car was awesome. Yeah, we got to make changes to it for the extra power and a little bit extra weight, but they do an awesome job. It’s great to finally get a win again.”

Winner Christopher Bell (DB3 Photo)



REALITY OF A DREAM: Christopher Bell wins at Tri-State Speedway as driver, owner
Bell wins an eventful night in Haubstadt, Brad Sweet extends points lead

HAUBSTADT, IN – Oct. 13, 2019 – After winning $100,000 in April through NASCAR’s Dash 4 Cash, Christopher Bell already knew what he would like to do with the money: purchase his own Sprint Car.

Six months later, the Norman, Okla. driver parked his self-owned No. 21 car in Victory Lane for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ Sunday night event at Tri-State Speedway.

The victory was his fifth career World of Outlaws win – first as an owner in the Series – and first win at the speedway.

“So, I had four Outlaw wins coming into today and I promise you those four Outlaw wins would be in my, arguably top-five, definitely top-ten of my favorite wins of my life,” said an elated Bell. “To get number five here with my own race car and a group of friends working on this thing is really special.”

The Indiana race was Bell’s fourth time in his own car, which he built with friend Chad Boat. He already had one win in it, too. However, throughout the night, you would’ve thought he’d been racing it for years. Bell even claimed he wasn’t good at the quarter-mile track.

He first dispelled that allegation with strong runs in his Drydene Heat race, where he finished second, and the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash, where he finished third. In both races he had a car capable of charging to the lead but ran out of laps to do so.

In the Feature, Bell had 40 laps to accomplish his mission.

Sweet jumped to the lead at the start of the race with Brent Marks and Bell in tow. However, five cautions – which separately involved drivers such as David Gravel, Sheldon Haudenschild and Donny Schatz – in the first 12 laps hindered the top three from finding a rhythm.

Bell highlighted his speed in that time span, sliding by Marks for second during a short run in between cautions.

After the accident on Lap 12, the race went caution free for the remaining 28 laps. With Schatz mired in the back of the field, Sweet was poised to have a strong points day, especially if he could secure the win. However, Bell wasn’t sympathetic to his cause.

Both almost saw their winning desire vanish on the restart with 28 laps to go. Third-place Kerry Madsen dove underneath Bell and Sweet in turn three, eyeing the lead. The Australian couldn’t find the grip to exit the corner ahead of them and fell back to third by turn one.

The battle was then Sweet versus Bell. Sweet ran high, while Bell slung his car around the bottom of the track, creeping closer and closer to the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 car every lap. And Sweet knew it.

On Lap 16 the Californian stole Bell’s line, running the bottom in turns three and four. Bell countered his move and switched to the high side of the track.

The beneficiary of the swap proved to be Bell. He got a run off turn four, propelling him to Sweet’s rear bumper down the front stretch. He stayed high into turn one, as Sweet went low and, again, charged off the corner with momentum. This time, he was able to use it to dart underneath Sweet into turn three and clear him for the lead by turn four, officially taking it on Lap 18.

“I felt good all night long and I knew our car was really close,” Bell said. “Honestly, we didn’t really change very much all night long. We kept getting those short stints and I felt fine. I felt like I just needed to get some time underneath of us and get going.”

The race was then Bell’s to lose. He distanced himself from Sweet, even with lap traffic creating an unpredictable obstacle course in front of him. Sweet began to fade by the halfway point, losing second to Madsen and eventually falling to fifth. Madsen didn’t have anything for Bell, but another threat behind him did.

After finding himself at the back of the field due to being involved in an early caution, Haudenschild moved his way into fifth with 19 laps to go. He was third with nine laps to go and second with five laps to go. The NOS Energy Drink No. 17 was an unstoppable bullet. But time was not in his favor and Bell worked lap traffic with ease.

However, worry did set in for Bell in the closing laps, unsure how his car would handle as the track changed and if he would have enough fuel to finish.

“This track just changes so much,” Bell said. “I’ve never gone good here before in my life. This is the first time I’ve come to Haubstadt and been competitive. I learned a lot today.”

By the time Bell sped past the waving checkered flag, he had a 3.7 second lead over Haudenschild.

“I set us back tonight with qualifying and getting in that mess in four, just really put us behind,” Haudenschild said. “After I did that my goal was to get back to where I was and go from there. On this type of track we know we’re going to have restarts. Just tried to get track position as early and quick as I could on those restarts and just try to pick them off after that.”

Madsen rounded out the podium with his brother Ian Madsen finishing fourth and Sweet ended the night fifth. After being involved in two accidents, Schatz managed a 13th-place finish but is now 30 points behind Sweet.

Wins are all that matter to Bell when it comes to racing with the World of Outlaws. Every one of them he cherishes, he said, especially when they’re with friends.

“Everyone works their tails off on it, but it’s a lot of fun because we’re all friends,” Bell said. “Just very thankful to be here driving this thing.”

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday, Oct. 18, will be at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. for the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown.

Winner Brent Marks (DB3 Photo)



OPENING A DREAM: Brent Marks wins the National Open at Williams Grove Speedway
Marks pockets $65,000 for winning the National Open, his first win of the season

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Oct. 5, 2019 – Williams Grove Speedway announcer Bruce Ellis held up a checkered flag to Brent Marks.

“Do you want to read what that says?” he asked the Myerstown, Pa. driver.

Marks grabbed the flag and held it eye level. Fixated on the printed logo he earnestly said, “Williams Grove National Open winner.”

“That’s you,” Ellis replied.

Marks won the 57th Champion Racing Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway Saturday night – his first win of the season – and pocketed the $65,000 prize.

How did he feel after Ellis proclaimed him the 2019 victor?

“I have no idea,” Marks said with a smile. “This is amazing. I’ve been wanting to win this race for a very long time. I grew up here in the infield. This is where I fell in love with Sprint Car racing. This is awesome.”

Marks described his 2019 season as frustrating. He failed to make four Features throughout the year and has said he felt like he let four potential wins slip through his fingers. Not Saturday night. Not in his home state in front of friends, family and local fans.

He showcased his determination for atonement during the final Drydene Heat race of the night. He went from fourth to second in one lap on a restart and put himself in the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

He then drew the pole for the second Dash of the night and went on to win it – placing him on the outside pole for the 40-lap World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Feature.

At the start of the National Open, Marks and polesitter Brian Brown drag raced down the front stretch toward turn one. Brown launched ahead of Marks into the corner to hold the lead, but before the two drivers could continue their duel down the backstretch a caution came out.

When it came time to stomp the throttle again, Marks acted quicker than Brown. He rocketed ahead of the FVP/Casey’s General Stores No. 21 and claimed the lead before the first turn. He led two laps before yellow lights flashed around the speed, again.

Marks chose the inside line on the restart and found himself in the same situation Brown did two laps earlier. Brown got the jump on Marks off turn four and charged ahead of him to reclaim the lead. He then began to extend his lead over Marks every lap.

On Lap nine, Brown lost traction in turn one and fought to keep his car pointed straight off turn two. His slip allowed Marks to reel him in. Daryn Pittman, in third, was also closing in on them both.

Three laps later Marks carried the momentum of a strong run off turn four to catch Brown before turn one. When they entered the turn, Marks dove underneath Brown and cleared him for the lead. Brown then lost second to Pittman the next corner.

Marks’ lead was short lived again with the caution coming out on Lap 14. After losing the lead to Brown on the last restart by starting on the bottom, Marks chose the high side for his next attempt. However, it didn’t help. Pittman bested him on the start and took the lead down the front stretch.

However, before the lap was completed a caution came out for several cars getting together in turn three – including 2018 National Open winner Lance Dewease, who could not continue. The race was then put under an Open Red, allowing teams to fuel their cars.

Marks was ready for Pittman on the restart. He rocketed ahead of the field, pulling away by half of a second when he reached the backstretch.

While Marks pulled away with the lead, Brown, Donny Schatz and Aaron Reutzel brawled for third. The trio used up the entire track for several laps trying to pass each other. Eventually Schatz and Reutzel made their way by Brown to move into third and fourth, respectively.

Heavy lap traffic became an issue for Marks by the halfway point of the Feature. Pittman closed in. And Schatz and Reutzel closed in on Pittman. A blanket could have covered the top-four with 20 laps to go.

Flashbacks of being held up in lap traffic and losing the win at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in June projected in Marks’ head. However, that wasn’t going to be the case this time. He learned. He wasn’t going to let another win slip away.

“I tried to play that whole race as smart as I could,” Marks said. “Tried to drive like a veteran and not get over my head. Just be super patient. Because I lost that race earlier in the year at Nashville. Kind of the same situation, you know running the bottom there with lap cars and I felt like I needed to get by them, made a mistake and lost the lead. I made sure I didn’t want to do that tonight.”

His patience with lap cars turned into car lengths gained on Pittman. Pressure from behind faded as the final laps approached. Marks was on his way to his fourth career World of Outlaws win.

Then, a caution. Paul McMahan came to a stop in turn one with a flat tire. Marks had to make two more perfect laps before he could see the checkered flag.

Pittman tried to get a run around the high side of turns one and two, but Marks was too strong on the bottom. By the time the Pennsylvanian finally saw the checkered flag, he had a 1.4 second lead over Pittman. Schatz finished third for the second night in-a-row at the speedway.

The runner-up finish for Pittman was his fifth time finishing second at the National Open. He said he would trade just about any of his win for a National Open win. He thought he might win before the caution came out when he took the lead on the restart. However, he was still pleased with his team’s overall performance – finishing second after starting sixth.

“We had a really good Roth Motorsports car for the weekend,” Pittman said. “We kept fine tuning on it, didn’t make any wholesale changes and continued to get better and better.”

For the second night in-a-row Schatz took a big chunk out of Brad Sweet’s points lead over him – with Sweet finishing ninth. Schatz is now 14 points behind Sweet. David Gravel, who finished fifth, has also crept his way into the points battle, now 88 points behind Sweet with eight races to go.

Reutzel won the National Open rookie award – finishing fourth – and Brian Montieth earned the KSE Hard Charger award with a stellar performance of charging from 26th to eighth.

Marks was the biggest winner in several ways. He celebrated the biggest win in his World Outlaws career, so far, with his family, friends and local fans and earned a large payday for his self-owned Brent Marks Racing team.

“What does it pay, sixty-five (thousand)?” Marks asked Ellis in Victory Lane.

“Sixty-five,” Ellis confirmed.

“That means everything,” Marks said after the race. “That sure as hell gets us through the winter.”

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Saturday, Oct. 12, will be at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind. for the Wabash Clash.

Winner David Gravel (DB3 Photo)



GRAND OPENING: David Gravel wins first night of National Open at Williams Grove
Gravel dominated the night by earning his 19th Quick Time and ninth win of the season

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Oct. 4, 2019 – A hunger had been building inside David Gravel the last three weeks.

His appetite for another win had been teased on several occasions. He set Quick Time three times since his last win in September but was unable to make the achievements relevant with another win.

Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway for the opening night of the National Open, Gravel was presented with a full course meal. He made sure to leave no crumbs for his competition.

He set Quick Time for the 19th time this season. Won his Drydene Heat race. Drew the pole for the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and won it. And then further demonstrated his mastery of the half-mile speedway by leading all 25 laps to claim his ninth win of the season – tying 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz for the second most wins this season. The victory was also his second win at Williams Grove Speedway this year – sixth overall.

“Just happy to Quick Time and win a race,” Gravel said, of Watertown, Conn. “Seems like the couple of races we’ve been drawing a bad pill for the Dash draw and tonight we were able to get a good draw. So just an awesome night. Finally get to show how good this car is.”

Gravel was proficient on the tacky track conditions all night. He couldn’t afford to be anything less. Fellow masters of the paper clip-shaped track, 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz and PA Posse veteran Lance Dewease had cars fast enough to keep Gravel starving for another win if he made a mistake.

At the start of the 25-lap Feature, Schatz moved his way from third to second by the second lap of the race and Dewease went from sixth to fifth before the first lap was completed.

Before they could try to make up any more ground, the caution came out on Lap two for Kerry Madsen, who lost his brakes.

On the restart Gravel launched ahead of Schatz. The Fargo, N.D.-native peeked underneath Gravel going into turn one, but the Mesilla Valley Transportation No. 41 was strong around the high side of the speedway. Gravel, again, launched ahead of the Toco Warranty No. 15 car down the backstretch.

Behind them, Dewease continued his relentless charge to the front by making the pass for fourth into turn one and then passed Cory Eliason for third-place off turn four. Schatz was his next target.

Gravel, Dewease and Schatz had already won at Williams Grove Speedway earlier this year. For Gravel, he was on a quest to cure his craving for another win. Dewease was looking for his 99th win in total at the speedway. Schatz was not only eyeing another win, but a chance to close the points gap between he and points leader Brad Sweet, who started 20th.

The caution came out again on Lap five for Jeff Halligan having an issue with his engine, which left oil on the track. Now Schatz and Dewease were close enough to Gravel to potentially spoil his night.

However, on the restart, Gravel shot ahead of the 30-car field, clearing Schatz before turn one. Both drivers went low through the first corner. Gravel, again, showed the strength of his car by being able to pull away from Schatz exiting the corner and down the backstretch.

Schatz faded away from Gravel and Dewease closed to the No. 15 car's bumper. The Fayetteville, Pa.-native stalked Schatz for several laps, while Gravel pulled away from them by more than a second. With 18 laps to go, Dewease dove underneath Schatz into turn three, cleared him for second by the apex of the corner but couldn’t hold the bottom. Dewease slid to the cushion in turn four, allowing Schatz to drive back underneath him and take the position back.

The two stayed in their respective positions for the next 15 laps. Dewease never faded from Schatz. Always kept the pressure on him. He tried to pass Schatz a few more times, but Schatz always ended the battle with the advantage.

Gravel reached lap traffic by Lap 16. It was Schatz and Dewease’s opportunity to try to make up ground on the leader.

“It was real hard,” Gravel said about the lap traffic. “If I went low the guy on the outside of me was just as fast. If they didn’t mess up it was going to be hard to get by them. Luckily Sheldon (Haudenschild) messed up once. Got by him. I was able to get by Kraig (Kinser). The top opened with Jacob (Allen) and I was able to put together a few good laps there. I don’t know how close anybody was.”

There was no pressure from behind for Gravel. Even in heavy lap traffic. With three laps to go Dewease was able to dive underneath Schatz into turn one and clear him for the runner-up spot. However, Gravel was more than two second ahead of him.

The Jason Johnson Racing team found themselves back in Victory Lane, picking up the $10,000 prize, while Dewease settled for a runner-up finish and Schatz rounded out the podium.

“We were pretty good from the start,” Dewease said. “It’s a hard field. A lot of fast race cars. I had some of the best in the country I had to pass.”

After two nights in-a-row of finishes outside the top-15 for Schatz and losing more than 30 points to Sweet, he rebounded with a podium finished and almost cut Sweet’s points lead in half. Coming into Friday night’s race Schatz was 40 points behind Sweet. He is now 26 points behind the Kasey Kahne Racing driver. However, Sweet stopped the bleeding from being worse by charging from 20th to 10th, picking up the KSE Hard Charger award.

“We were kind of hanging,” Schatz said about his race. “We’ve got to adapt to somethings and the guys did a great job with that. Hopefully we can learn from the night and make improvements for tomorrow.”

Schatz also had Ford’s new 410-c.i. motor in his car. He said he was pleased with it.

“It’s finally a relief that it’s here,” Schatz said. “You can’t say enough about these guys. I don’t think anyone will see the work and how much went into this… All we can do is keep building on it and keep working on it and that’s what we’ll do because that’s what we do.”

Friday’s night victory for Gravel and his team helped cure one hungry, but another formulated soon after with the National Open on Saturday night paying $65,000-to-win.

“It feels good to win the first night, but tomorrow is why we’re here,” Gravel said.
