Tony Stewart Racing: Donny Schatz World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Great Northwest Advance

DONNY SCHATZ
TSR Bad Boy Off Road/Chevrolet Performance Driver Continues Peak Run As Outlaws Head to Great Northwest for Labor Day Weekend Tripleheader

INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 1, 2016) – Early in what has become a storied 20-year World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman® Sprint Car Series career, Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) driver Donny Schatz looked at the annual late-summer trip to the Great Northwest as a time to take a breath and enjoy the view as the WoO campaign began winding down.

For Schatz, the Labor Day-weekend tripleheader in Washington offers the driver of the TSR No. 15 Bad Boy Off Road/Chevrolet Performance J&J the opportunity to continue his breathtaking pace in the quest for an eighth WoO championship. Schatz leads the Outlaws back into action Friday andSaturday at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Washington for the Outlaws Energy Showdown before concluding the weekend with the annual Labor Day race at Grays Harbor Raceway Park in Elma, Washington.

During those initial runs through Montana, Washington, and Oregon, the climb to the top of the Outlaws’ hierarchy may have seemed as difficult as reaching the peak of the snow-covered Mountain ranges they traveled through to reach the dirt ovals in Billings, Yakima, Elma and Cottage Grove. The Fargo, North Dakota driver spent his early 20s learning how to win Outlaw races competing against the sport’s iconic drivers Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell and chasing the likes of Dave Blaney, Mark Kinser, and Danny Lasoski late in the summer at dirt ovals around the northwest.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Sweeps the Lucas Oil ASCS Brownfield Classic at Grays Harbor Raceway

ELMA, Wash. (July 2, 2016) Sam Hafertepe, Jr. made it a perfect weekend at the Grays Harbor Raceway, winning the finale of the 2nd annual Fred Brownfield Classic with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“I don’t even know what to say anymore. It’s awesome,” said Hafertepe of his sixth Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour win of the season.

“To get out to the lead like we did, I knew Wayne [Johnson] was going to be tough. He was tough last night too. He gets around here pretty good so I knew he’d try the bottom on me and would be moving around searching but when I got out front, I got pretty comfortable and didn’t want to really push it too hard, just try to catch the lapped cars at the right time and squeeze past one of them and not burn my tires off because it started laying rubber there on entry. I just tried to drive a smart race and try not to make any mistakes.”
