BRISBANE, Queensland (January 1, 2019) – Donny Schatz cruised to his second main event win at Ausdeck Patios Archerfield Speedway on New Years Day. Schatz began the evening by setting fast time in time trials and qualifying for the outside front row starting position for the feature.
The 10-time and defending World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car champion led all 35 trips around the semi-banked quarter-mile clay oval en route to his second triumph in three starts.
Schatz won in his first night of action at Archerfield Speedway on December 26th. In his second outing on December 29th, the Fargo driver was running second when he was involved in an incident which resulted in the Raw Metal Corp / American Racer No. 15 J&J getting upside down and ending his night.
“When you bend a car up, you don’t know what’s to come or how it’s going to feel. The car felt really good all night,” said Schatz in an Archerfield Speedway interview after his win on Tuesday. “Lannie (Nichols) and Jason Sides did a great job making adjustments all night long and gave me a car capable of winning the feature.”
Schatz’s six-race swing in Australia will close with three World Series Sprint Car events at Archerfield Speedway on January 4th, 5th and 9th.
