BROWNSBURG, Ind. (April 18, 2022) – Despite the weather curveball on Friday, and adverse track conditions on Saturday, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together a sound weekend at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri, and ultimately translated their one night stand into a top-ten performance, hanging on to finish ninth after starting sixth on the feature grid.
Now with ten top-ten performances in 14 World of Outlaws starts, Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, 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, No. 15 sprint car, was actually in the hunt for a top-five at the Pevely highbanks, pressuring for fourth and fifth early before eventually fading to ninth in the running order. Tricky track conditions, mostly in the form of ruts and bumps through turns one and two, made advancement at a premium for the ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion.
Schatz finished sixth in the evening’s dash, kicking off the program with a runner-up performance during his respective heat race. In addition, Schatz recorded the second-fastest time during qualifying time trials, falling just behind Rico Abreu in the 37-car field.
