BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 11, 2022) – Despite Mother Nature doing her best to ruin the weekend, ultimately causing the cancellation of Friday’s US 36 Raceway appearance due to rain and cold temperatures, the weekend went on for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewat/Curb-Agajanian Racing, visiting Lake Ozark Speedway for the annual Jason Johnson Classic on Saturday, April 9.
Honoring the late Jason Johnson, the annual Jason Johnson Classic was stout in prize money, awarding $15,000 to the winner, as well as stout in numbers, as nearly 40 entries made their presence known in the Show-Me State including a few All Star Circuit of Champions competitors. Schatz would go on to qualify for main event competition and eventually finish 12th in the 30-lap contest, advancing two spots after starting 14th on the grid.
Schatz qualified for the Jason Johnson Classic A-main via a fourth-place run during his respective heat race, kicking things off with the ninth-fastest time during his respective group of qualifiers.
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2022 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with another doubleheader in the Show-Me State, set to invade I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, on Friday and Saturday, April 15-16. A warm-up for the annual 55-lap/$20,000-to-win Ironman 55, the two-day visit to greater St. Louis will feature two, full programs and will cap all World of Outlaws action in the Show-Me State until the Series returns for the aforementioned Ironman in early August.
Donny Schatz and Tony Stewat/Curb-Agajanian Racing would like to thank all of their marketing partners: Advance Auto Parts, Carquest, Ford Motor Company, Ford Performance, Curb Records, Sage Fruit, Digital Ally, Absolute Automation and Security, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts.
