Craig Dominates Southern National for 2nd Career PASS South Victory

LUCAMA, NC (March 4) – Defending Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model champion, Matt Craig captured the lead from Spencer Davis on lap 16 and never looked back en route to his second career series win in the Dogwood 150 Saturday afternoon at Southern National Motorsports Park.  Following his win, Craig laid down a challenge amidst a furious chassis builder battle going on in the South’s oldest Super Late Model tour.

“This was just an awesome car and I can’t thank my crew enough for all the hard work they put in to it,” said Craig, driver of the C&C Boilers Sales & Service Chevrolet.  “Everybody thinks the Furys are the best, but they just got waxed by a brand new Hamke.  We struggled a bit at Dillon, but we’ve got it figured out.  He [Noles] got us on a restart, but I laid the hammer down off two and cruised from there.”

In qualifying, Craig just missed out on the track record to claim his first career PASS quick qualifying time with a speed of 97.853miles per hour.  Following the top 10 qualifiers redraw, Craig would start third, while Davis and Tanner Thorson moved to the front row.

Schatz Sweeps the Show at LoneStar

Sheldon Haudenschild records first podium finish in rookie season

KILGORE, Tex. – March 3, 2017 – There is a crater wrapped around turns one and two of LoneStar Speedway – now a reinvented third-mile dirt course. Shortened from a 3/8-mile oval since the last time the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series visited there in 2010, the “Greatest Show on Dirt” competed on the equally as fast bullring Friday night for the first time at the new length. Wheel-to-wheel with 23 other cars, Donny Schatz avoided the expected dangers of short-track racing and took the checkered flag without a hitch.

Schatz led all 35 laps in his victory, taking home not only the trophy but also a gold-toned Limited Edition Craftsman wrench set for the company’s 90th anniversary. Though Schatz established his dominance throughout the program – setting the night’s quick-time, and winning his heat and the Craftsman Club Dash – it did not come as easily as it seemed on paper. From an assumingly unlikely challenger – in terms of their resumes – the eight-time series champion was challenged by Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender Sheldon Haudenschild throughout the night.

“[Sheldon] was there from the start and did everything he needed to do,” Schatz said. “It’s an experience thing. Obviously, he is a good, young driver. He’s got a bright future ahead of him. But we try not to focus on what someone else is doing. We have to focus on our own stuff to try to stay ahead of these young guys.”

Wall Wins Eventful Race Two in Adelaide

David Wall Takes Race Win and Series Lead

David Wall has continued his strong start to the 2017 Porsche Carrera Cup Australia presented by TAG Heuer season with victory in Saturday’s race two in Adelaide, moving to the top of the series standings.

An impressive race two start allowed Wall to lead into the opening chicane before the Sydneysider built a strong lead, which he maintained until the finish of the eventful 20 lap race.

After finishing second in Friday’s race one, Saturday’s win places Wall in the lead of the championship standings entering the final day of the opening round.

“I was very happy with my start in race two. The car was okay during the race; the track definitely changed compared to yesterday, as it normally does here, so we’ll tune up the car a little bit again for tomorrow’s race. It’s a great way to start the championship and I can’t wait for tomorrow and hopefully remain at the front,” said Wall.
