Shane Stewart Stands Tall at Williams Grove

Earns First Career Williams Grove Win

MECHANICSBURG, PA – May 20, 2017 – Shane Stewart started on the pole for the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway, but didn’t lead the opening lap. Instead, he battled with PA Posse driver TJ Stutts of Liverpool, PA and used a slide job in turns one and two to take the lead on a lap 11 restart. From there, Stewart held off Stutts and then Daryn Pittman on a pair of restarts over the final 10 laps to earn his first career Williams Grove win and his first Outlaw victory of the 2017 season.
 
“You don’t even know what it means to me to finally get here in Victory Lane,” Stewart said in Victory Lane. “I know the East Coast isn’t always kind to me, but I am very happy and going to cherish this win.”
 
Stewart earned the pole after winning the Craftsman Club Dash and led the field to the green flag with Stutts on the outside of the front row. It was Stutts who grabbed the lead by the time the two drivers had raced turn three. The top two quickly broke away from a third-place battle between Outlaw rookie Sheldon Haudenschild and Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, PA. Shaffer took the spot on lap seven when Haudenschild spun at the bottom of turn one, but kept his foot in the gas and continued without incident despite losing five positions.

David Gravel Leads Flag-to-Flag For Spring Classic Win at Williams Grove

Second Straight Victory For CJB Motorsports
MECHANICSBURG, PA – May 19, 2017 – David Gravel withstood a late surge from Donny Schatz and a pair of restarts with less than five laps remaining to kickoff the weekend with a Spring Classic win at Williams Grove Speedway on Fridaynight.
Gravel started on the pole for the 25-lap main event after winning the Craftsman Club Dash and led flag-to-flag even despite restarts with three and four laps remaining in the main event. It was the second win of the week in Central Pennsylvania for the Watertown, CT native who also won at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday. It was also Gravel’s seventh victory of the season.
“It’s definitely huge to win in PA at all,” Gravel said. “To win Lincoln and Williams Grove is really good. We have to enjoy this a little bit tonight, but tomorrow’s a new day. We’re really happy with where we’re at right now and we’ll keep moving forward.”
After timing second quick in Flight B Qualifying and second in his heat, Gravel was scheduled to roll off eighth for the dash in his CJB Motorsports No.5, but an eight inversion draw put him on the pole and he never looked back, scoring wins in the Dash and Feature just as he did Wednesday night at Lincoln.

Earns Sixth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Victory this Season

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA – May 17, 2017 – David Gravel dominated the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway on Wednesday night, leading all 35 laps of the Feature at the historic 3/8-mile track to take the checkered flag 6.501 seconds ahead of runner-up finisher Daryn Pittman.

The Feature win completed a perfect night for Gravel. The Watertown, CT driver was quickest in Flight A Time Trials before winning his Heat and the Craftsman Club Dash to earn the pole and eventually the Feature triumph that lifted the Outlaws over the Pennsylvania Posse in the first rivalry race of the season. It was both Gravel’s first career win at Lincoln and his sixth of the season with the Outlaws.

“It’s definitely huge,” Gravel said following his win. “World of Outlaws guys do not win many Outlaw shows in PA, so to win here is great, at a track that I haven’t really been good at in the past. To do that is awesome, to get our sixth win is awesome.”

Tony Stewart Racing: Donny Schatz World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Lincoln/Williams Grove/Weedsport Preview

DONNY SCHATZ
Historic Rivalry Renews This Week as Outlaws Take On Pennsylvania Posse

INDIANAPOLIS (May 17, 2017) – It’s the first of three trips inside hostile territory this week for Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing’s (TSR) Donny Schatz and the rest of the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman® Sprint Car Series regulars. Schatz and the TSR Arctic Cat/Ford Performance team will square off with the famed “Pennsylvania Posse” three times in the next four nights before venturing to New York to cap a busy week of action for “The Greatest Show on Dirt.”

Schatz, the eight-time and reigning WoO champion, leads the contingent of 15 WoO regulars into central Pennsylvania, a region that boasts the toughest group of teams the Outlaws face each year. The driver of the TSR No. 15 Arctic Cat/Ford Performance/Curb J&J will look to carry the torch again for the traveling regulars, starting with tonight’s Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway near Abbottstown. Last May, Schatz tallied one for the Outlaws in their battle with the Posse at Lincoln by leading the 30-lap A-Feature from start to finish. Following the Gettysburg Clash, the Outlaws will travel to historic Williams Grove Speedway near Mechanicsburg for the two-night NAPA/NGK Spark Plug Williams Grove Morgan Cup on Friday and Saturday night.

In each of the previous 39 seasons, the Outlaws have embarked on trips inside The Keystone State seeking the opportunity to take not only the prize money, but bragging rights in what has become a very heated rivalry. For the past 20 WoO campaigns, Schatz has seen the rivalry at its best. He scratched and clawed his way into the main event fields as a teenager and splashed onto the scene with his first victory on the biggest stage, the 2000 Williams Grove National Open. And he has been putting his stamp on the rivalry ever since, totaling 24 of his 238 career WoO A-Feature triumphs in Pennsylvania. He has 19 career wins at Williams Grove, including five National Open triumphs at the historic half-mile, dirt oval.

Schuchart Scores First-Ever Win at Eldora Speedway

#LetsRaceTwo, but Let’s Win One First
Logan Schuchart scores his first-ever Eldora Speedway win

ROSSBURG, OH – May 12, 2017 – Logan Schuchart scored his first-ever Eldora Speedway win Friday night during the #LetsRaceTwo opener, battling Eldora veteran Shane Stewart for the lead from laps eight through 12, after which Schuchart retained it for the remaining 18 laps to secure his fourth career World of Outlaws win and second win this season.

“It’s the place you always want to win at,” said the Shark Racing 1s driver about Eldora after his win. “As a little kid, I dreamt about being a World of Outlaws driver. Eldora, with all the history behind it, it’s really cool. My grandfather won the first Outlaw race here in ’78, so being able to win this race with him by my side is really cool. I hope it means something for July. My grandfather won the Knoxville Nationals. He won the Williams Grove National Open. But nobody won the Kings Royal, so that’s a race I really want to run well in, and this is where you get your notes and stuff. To win tonight, hopefully, that means something for the next couple races in the next couple months.”

Schuchart’s win emerged from a field of 35 cars, a third of them Ohio natives. But the night went to the Outlaws. Following Schuchart into Victory Lane were fellow Outlaws Stewart and Brad Sweet. Quicktime went to Outlaw Jason Sides, the very first driver to qualify. Three of the four heat races went to Outlaws – the fourth going to Aliquippa, PA-native Tim Shaffer. The Dash went to Outlaw Jason Johnson. And all four that transferred from the Last Chance Showdown were Outlaws as well, with Kraig Kinser in the lead.

Outlaws Return to ‘The Hub of Racing’

Outlaws Set to Perform on Auto Racing’s Biggest Stage

CONCORD, N.C. – May 12, 2017 – No city is more synonymous with auto racing than Charlotte, NC. On Friday, May 26, The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway will host the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series for the 16th time, giving one driver the opportunity to say he won at Charlotte alongside the best in the industry.
 
Having earned the nickname ‘The Hub of Racing’, Charlotte, NC is home to many racing heroes, including numerous NASCAR teams and two full-time World of Outlaws teams: Larson Marks Racing and Kasey Kahne Racing.
 
The grueling World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series 93-race schedule crisscrosses the country from Florida to California, working its way back east, then up into Canada and other places in between before making it to North Carolina. The Outlaws have up to four events a week this season, and for many drivers and crew, that means not seeing family from February’s legendary DIRTcarNationals in Florida until whenever the Series nears their hometowns. For Larson Marks Racing and Kasey Kahne Racing, this only happens twice a year: during the May Outlaw Showdown, and of course, World Finals.

Win Number Five for the No. 5 of David Gravel

Plymouth, IN – April 28, 2017 – After starting seventh on the field at the beginning of the 35-lap feature at Plymouth Speedway, David Gravel worked his way up to third-place just shy of the halfway mark. It was with three laps to go Gravel took advantage of a bobble by the No. 87 of Aaron Reutzel to put him in the runner-up spot, but he wasn’t done just yet. Setting his sights on the leader of No. 7 of Jason Sides, Gravel squeezed his way under Sides as the two entered Turn 3. Gravel completed the move en route his fifth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win of the 2017 season.

With rain all around the Plymouth-IN area, the stars of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series were determined to put on a great show for the Plymouth Speedway fans – and they did just that. Early in the evening’s schedule, 26 cars of the 29 that entered the event all were quicker than the track record in hot laps. When it came to qualifying, Parker Price-Miller set fast time and in the process set a new track record with a lap of 11.079-second, eclipsing the previous record set in 2016 by Logan Schuchart.

It was Jason Sides and Donny Schatz showing the way to the green flag for the Feature event at Plymouth Speedway.

Johnson would head to the work area and rejoin the field after some work to his No. 41 machine.

The Ragin’ Cajun Scores His First Devil’s Bowl Win

Second Win of the Season, Seventh Career Series Win

MESQUITE, TX — April 15, 2017 — Jason “the Ragin’ Cajun” Johnson dominated night one of the Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil’s Bowl Speedway, leading all 25 laps of the evening’s Feature after winning the Craftsman Club Dash from the pole and running fastest in qualifying.

“It’s one of these nights you always imagine and you dream of,” said Johnson from Victory Lane. “We set quick time, won a heat, won a dash, won a feature. That’s a first for me, so hats off to this crew: Jeff, Jacob, Phillip. They’re working their tails off, and it’s a lot of fun to drive right now,” he continued with a chuckle. “It feels great to be back in Victory Lane.”

Johnson’s second win of the season leaves him fourth in points standings and finally puts a little distance between him and Daryn Pittman. It’s also his seventh career series victory, the first one having been at Texas Motor Speedway fourteen years ago. 

While Johnson led flag-to-flag, Brad Sweet was patiently working his Napa Auto Parts/ Kasey Kahne Racing No. 49 up from five to make a late-race push for the lead. Running the bottom, he made a pass for second over Jason Sides between turns three and four, but then chose to follow Johnson on the top and came in after him.
