Hard Charging Schatz Wins JB Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway
Scores his 17th World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory of the season
BEAVER DAM, Wis. – June 27, 2015 – Four different drivers led an intense Jim Boyd “JB” Memorial presented by Karavan Trailers at Beaver Dam Raceway on Saturday night, but it was a familiar face who emerged at the end – Donny Schatz.
The reigning World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion battled through traffic from a 10th place starting position and around leader Daryn Pittman late in the race to score his 17th win of the season and the night’s KSE Racing Hard Charger Award.
“This race team, you don’t count them out,” Schatz said of his No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies team. “It doesn’t matter if we start 10th or 20th. They’ve got their game face on, they’re really motivated right now, they’re really on top of things. The more people mess with them, the more they work hard so that obviously showed tonight.”
