MAKE IT NINE FOR DONNY SCHATZ WITH DOMINANT FVP KNOXVILLE NATIONALS VICTORY
KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Aug. 15, 2015 - Donny Schatz's domination of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store continued Saturday night as he led wire-to-wire in the 55th running of the event and won his ninth Nationals title in ten years.
The Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver was the top point earner coming into the final feature and started on the pole. Through 50 laps he skillfully worked the half-mile Knoxville Raceway to hold the fast line and fend off challenges. Though Danny Lasoski and Kerry Madsen made attempts, Schatz was in a league all his own.
With pyrotechnics ablaze behind him, Schatz stood on the back of his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies/Chevrolet Performance/J&J Auto Racing car and celebrated among his team members, friends and family and again claimed the $150,000 Knoxville Nationals prize.
"The minute I took that checkered flag I was teary-eyed," Schatz said. "To see the race team, to see the excitement in their eyes, the manufacturers, all the people we get to work with, that makes this so much more special than me just getting the biggest check and the biggest trophy and the most prestigious race of the year. It's the people that get to go along with you… when you can get them all in one spot and enjoy something like that it makes it worth living."
Schatz wrapped up the World of Outlaws 'Month of Money' with three wins. Read Full Article
