FARGO, N.D. (April 12, 2022) – This weekend the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heads to Pevely, Missouri for a pair of shows at the exciting Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55.
Schatz has 53 career starts at the high-banked one-third mile oval, with an average finish of 6.8 which includes two wins and nine second-place finishes. In total, Schatz has 28 top five finishes at the speedway.
Last year, in four appearances at I-55, Schatz’s best result came on August 6th when he drove from 10th to sixth in the Night Before the Ironman.
Entering the weekend, Schatz currently sits 5th in the point standings, 110 markers behind leader Brad Sweet.
After having last Friday night’s races at US 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri canceled due to rain/snow, the Jason Johnson Classic at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri on Saturday was the only event of the weekend.
Cool spring temperatures messed with the racing surface all night, forcing World of Outlaws officials to shorten the main event from 41 laps to 30 due to concerns of tire wear.
Once the green flag dropped, the track took rubber after several laps making passing difficult.
Schatz was still able to pick up a pair of positions during the event, advancing from 14th to 12th.
Schatz and the entire Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing team would like to thank all of their great partners for their continued support!
