Danny Dietrich Does It at Williams Grove
Scores win for the Posse on night one of the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway
MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – July 24, 2015 – Danny Dietrich achieved something few others have this season – he passed Donny Schatz for the lead and kept it. Dietrich charged from a ninth place starting position in Friday night’s Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway to score his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event win since 2013.
As big of an impediment as Schatz was, the seven other cars that started in front of Dietrich may have been the bigger challenge. As cautions plagued the opening laps of the 25-lap feature, Dietrich was stuck in ninth with Joey Saldana ahead, leading Schatz. After four abortive restarts, all reset by crashes, the race got going again and Dietrich made his move. From ninth to seventh to second in just three laps, the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native took advantage of the restarts and pushed forward.
By lap 12, Dietrich had caught Schatz and was looking for a way around. Though Schatz was able to hold him off for the next five laps, it was short lived, as Dietrich got around Schatz as the drivers rounded turn two. Dietrich pulled away from the six-time Outlaws champion.
MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – July 24, 2015 – After getting around Joey Saldana, Donny Schatz tried to score a win for the Outlaws on night one of the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway, but it was a charging Danny Dietrich who fought his way forward and battled past Schatz to score his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season. Schatz and Sammy Swindell rounded out the podium finishers.
MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (July 23, 2015) – The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series schedule heats up with four races in five days beginning with the two-day Summer Nationals July 24-25 that pits the Pennsylvania Posse against the Outlaws drivers.
A sweep of the feature events could give the victor $33,000. Friday’s 25-lap feature pays $8,000 to win, Saturday’s 30-lap finale pays $20,000 plus another $5,000 Morgan Cup bonus.
SARVER, Pa. (July 21, 2015) – Up next in the continuing month of money was the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway, a uniquely formatted doubleheader in which the first 30 lap event was run in traditional World of Outlaws fashion and then the field was inverted for a final 30-lap event in which no points were at stake. No one in the history of the event has won both in the same night.
To add another degree of difficulty to tonight’s event, the Outlaws were back in Pennsylvania Posse territory facing tough competition.

ROSSBURG, Ohio – July 18, 2015 – Neither rain nor Donny Schatz could keep Shane Stewart down on Saturday night as the Larson Marks Racing driver scored the biggest win of his career and was crowned ‘King Shane’ in a Kings Royal no one will soon forget.
“This is an awesome, awesome weekend,” Stewart said in victory lane. “I don’t even know what to say, it’s an unbelievable feeling.”
Mother Nature wreaked havoc early on as the skies opened up on Eldora Speedway just after the first Heat race of the night got underway. The rain persisted off and on for the next two hours and with track work, pushed the rain delay past four hours. By the time the track was back in racing condition, it was just past 1 a.m. Sunday morning.

With Shane Stewart charging forward, Schatz’s car sputtered with five to go and he lost the lead to Stewart. It was Stewart who claimed the title of King Shane the 32nd. Jason Johnson finished the night in second with Rico Abreu in third.
