BROWNSBURG, Ind. (Jan. 31, 2022) – With the 2022 racing season commencing this week, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) is pleased to announce its partner line-up and unveil an all-new look for 10-Time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series (WoO) champion, Donny Schatz. Kicking-off this year’s campaigns with the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions Series at Senoia (Ga.) Raceway on Feb. 4 -5, Schatz will set his sights on an 11th career WoO Series championship with the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., on Feb. 8 – 12.
Advance Auto Parts, a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider that serves both professional installer and do-it-yourself customers with over 4,700 locations across North America, will return as a co-primary partner on Schatz’s familiar No. 15 entry.
For a third consecutive season, Carquest, an American automotive parts distribution network owned and operated by Advance through over 1,300 independent retailers, will support Fargo, North Dakota’s Schatz as a co-primary partner setting aim on success from coast-to-coast in 2022 and ultimately a WoO championship.
In addition to Advance and Carquest, Ford Performance, the official engine provider for TSR, will also return as a primary partner on Schatz’ No. 15. Owned and operated by the Ford Motor Company and headquartered in Dearborn, Mich., Ford Performance is responsible for the brand’s major racing operations globally as well as overseeing the development of Ford’s racing engines.
The 2022 season will see TSR continue its assistance in developing and perfecting Ford Performance’s 410c.i. engine, the FPS 410. In 2021, Ford Performance helped power Schatz to three WoO Victories, including his 300th career series feature event win, ending the season fourth in the series championship standings. The 2022 campaign will mark Schatz’s 26th season as a full-time WoO driver and his third utilizing the FPS 410 powerplant.
Continuing a 12-year relationship with the Brownsburg, Ind. based motorsports operation, Curb-Agajanian Racing will again partner with TSR as a co-entrant for Schatz. Partnering in 2010 for the first time, Curb-Agajanian Racing, Curb Records and TSR own a longstanding tradition of monumental success, acquiring not only victories but six Knoxville Nationals championships and six World of Outlaws championships.
On board for a fifth season at TSR is Sage Fruit, the sales and marketing firm for four grower/packer/shippers of Northwest Tree Fruits, who will return in 2022 as a major partner TSR and Schatz. For three generations, Sage Fruit has been delivering the best apples, pears and cherries to consumers from coast-to-coast.
