Tony Stewart Racing: Donny Schatz World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Missouri/Kansas Preview

DONNY SCHATZ
Outlaws Thunder Through the Plains with Missouri, Kansas Stops

INDIANAPOLIS (May 3, 2017) – It’s a throwback weekend for the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Sprint Car Series as “The Greatest Show on Dirt” returns to a pair of tracks entrenched in the sport’s roots. Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing’s (TSR) Donny Schatz will lead the traveling Sprint car stars back to familiar soil this weekend as the Outlaws thunder through the plains, making stops Friday at State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Missouri and Saturday at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas.

Schatz, the eight-time and reigning WoO champion, and TSR’s Arctic Cat/Ford Performance-backed team are looking to begin the month of May in similar fashion as they kicked off the 2017 campaign in February. The team was performing at an incredible pace in Florida and is looking forward to a busy slate of action this month with the goal of building momentum for the heat of summer.

The biggest obstacle the past few weeks for Schatz and his crew of Rick Warner, Steve Swenson and Brad Mariscotti has been Mother Nature. Two weeks ago, a weekend of action was washed out and, last weekend, an Indiana doubleheader was reduced to a single event at Plymouth Speedway, where Schatz raced the TSR No. 15 Arctic Cat/Ford Performance/Curb J&J to a fourth-place finish.

NIXA, Mo. (April 21, 2017) – Kyle Bellm and the Resource Asset Management Solutions (RAMS) No. 14k Sprint Car team picked up some strong momentum by racing to a solid fifth-place Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour finish atop Sedalia’s ½-mile Missouri State Fairgrounds clay oval last Saturday afternoon.

With inclement weather already nixing this weekend’s Air Capital Shootout at Wichita’s 81 Speedway, Bellm and the PPG Automotive Finishes/Colorvision team will take on the ASCS Warrior Region at Moberly’s Randolph County Raceway on Saturday night.

Last Saturday’s card at Sedalia started in unusual fashion with Bellm drawing a low number to start on the pole of the day’s first heat race.  Bellm took full advantage by picking up the heat race win aboard the VP Racing Fuels/Schure Built Suspensions mount to earn a spot in the redraw.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Gets One for the Thumb at Missouri State Fair Speedway

SEDALIA, Mo.

“Let me tell you, Johnny and I raced well together last year and it’s the same this year. I’ve got a lot of respect for what he does, and he shows the same towards me and when we can put on a show like that in front of these fans, that’s what makes them want to come back every time,” said Hafertepe was congratulated in the car by Herrera.

Asked about his fifth win in as many starts, Sam replied, “This is incredible. We really didn’t have the best car early on. We were way to tight and I had to start making it work, especially in three and four where they were just eating us up but just hats off to my guys.”

Brad Loyet Masters the Historic Half-Mile with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour

SEDALIA, Mo. (June 17, 2016) After a terrible night at the track on Thursday at the Creek County Speedway, Friday’s performance at the Missouri State Fair Speedway made the sting disappear as Missouri’s Brad Loyet parked the Vacuworx Global/Buddy Loyet Motorsports No. 05 in Victory Lane for the second time in 2016 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, and first time at the “Historic Half-Mile”.

Speedweek’s first repeat winner, Loyet gave chase the first 17 laps before finding the line around the Missouri State Fair Speedway and leader, Channin Tankersley, as the pair began to clear slower traffic.

“To win here is really cool. I’ve always wanted to pick up a win here at the “Historic Half-Mile” so now my names on the list but, it definitely wasn’t easy. Channin [Tankersley] was setting a really quick pace out there and I didn’t know if I was going to catch him. I though lapped traffic was going to help me, but it actually hurt me getting into the dirt air and throwing up a lot of dust,” commented Loyet, who is not third in Speedweek standings.
