BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 22, 2020) – Despite missing the top-ten during each of their weekend outings, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing managed to put together a pair of feature starts during their recent trip to the Hoosier State, highlighting the Tri-State Speedway doubleheader in Haubstadt, Indiana, with an 11-place finish on Friday evening, June 19. The Fargo, North Dakota-native started 13th on the feature grid and climbed two spots in 30 circuits.
Although falling short of matching his Friday night result, Schatz, driver of the Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No 15 sprint car, capped the two-day visit to the Tri-State highbanks with a 16th-place finish on Saturday, June 20, earning enough points to maintain second in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship chase, trailing defending Series champion, Brad Sweet, by 66 markers.
A pair of fourth-place finishes during heat race action allowed for Schatz’ main event starts.
Donny Schatz will continue his quest toward an 11th World of Outlaws championship with a tripleheader at the Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minnesota, on Thursday through Saturday, June 25-27. The three-day Jackson Nationals showcase will be headlined with a $30,000-to-win finale on Saturday night.
