Meyers Powers His Way to Fourth Victory at Castrol Raceway

Series points leader gets second victory in a row in Canada; Schatz second

EDMONTON, Alberta — Aug. 26, 2011 — Jason Meyers was the quickest man by far on the first night of a two day show at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In the process of setting Quick Time, Meyers broke the four year old track record by turning in a lap of 12.653 around the 3/8ths mile oval. During the 30 lap feature, Meyers used both the top and bottom grooves to slide past Paul McMahan on lap 18 to hold on for the win. (Dan Fredrickson photo)

“Charlie Garrett horsepower is the key to all of those Quick Times and track records,” Meyers said as he stood by his #14 DDNi/GLR Investments/All-Star Performance KPC. “Everyone on this crew really works hard and I have to tell you, we love Canada. It’s a long haul up here but the people are great and so I the racing. Another win is great. It puts more points up on the board. Tonight you really had to hunt around to find the right line because the track kept changing. The crew here did an awesome job of giving us a great racing surface tonight.”

2011 Knoxville Nationals winner Donny Schatz was another driver who continuously searched around the track to find the right line for his #15 STP/Armor All/Chevrolet.

“The track certainly went through a lot of changes,” said Schatz, a Fargo, N.D. resident. “There for a while, everyone was running the bottom which kicked some stuff up to the middle and I was able to take advantage of that for about four or five laps.”

As Meyers and Schatz ran away from the pack, a battle was brewing behind them for the third spot. With early race leader McMahan and a lightening quick Jason Sides trading slide jobs at each end of the race track, Lucas Wolfe was able to sneak through for his second consecutive third place finish.

“We got to racing really hard there,” said Wolfe. “Fortunately for us no one wrecked and we made it out with another great result. We keep running really well and that’s encouraging as we head west.”

The action on the track was fast and furious as several drivers moved throughout the top-5. McMahan wound up finishing in the fourth spot with Sides rounding out the top-5. Title contender Steve Kinser was caught up in a spin during a green-white-checkered attempt and finished 15th. His son Kraig, also running in the top-5 for much of the event, spun in turn one and finished the night 12th.

The ‘Great Northern Tour’ wraps up for the Outlaws as the series is back at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday, August 27.
