By Tony Veneziano, World of Outlaws PR Director 

 

Just as in 2006, Donny Schatz can count on one hand the number of times he has looked at the World of Outlaws championship standings over the course of the season. He has stressed countless times how important it is to continue winning race and that the points will take care of themselves.

 This was evident again on Saturday night, as he led all 35 laps en route to winning the inaugural Dave Helm Memorial at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, California, as he continues to closes in on his second consecutive World of Outlaws title.

 

Schatz started on the pole and jumped to an early lead, battling a rough race track and an early charge from California native Ronnie Day and a late charge from Jason Sides and Tim Kaeding. Schatz used a strong restart after a caution with two laps to go, to claim the $10,000 top prize for his series leading 19th A-Feature win of the season and the 70th of his World of Outlaws career, which puts him in a tie with Dave Blaney for sixth on the all-time win list.

 

“It was a good night,” said Schatz, driver of the ParkerStore J&J. “The race track was very wet and a little rough. That’s not really my style anymore. I’m a little bit older than 18, back when I was 18, I thought that was fun. We have really been working on our short track program. Any time that you get to victory lane is great and we are excited to be here.”

 

Early in the race, Schatz maintained a slight lead over Day, who closed the gap on the seventh lap as the pair entered heavy lapped traffic. While Schatz was running the high side of the track in traffic, Day looked low a couple of times exiting the third and fourth turns, but did not have enough momentum to make the pass. The caution flew on the eighth lap, giving the leaders a clear race track ahead of them.

 

“I was having a tough time going through lapped traffic,” explained Schatz. “I think everyone was about the same speed at the end of the race. When the fuel load comes off the cars, sometimes they get a little bit tighter. There was so much mud on everything that is was getting to be a handful. I slammed the framerail in the race track coming off (turn) three with one to go and I saw the mud fall off and I hoped that nothing would fall off this thing.”

 

On the ensuring restart, Schatz jumped to a four car length lead as the pair entered the first and second turns. At this time, Jason Sides began to close on Day and worked on the veteran driver, slipping around him on the 19th lap to move into the runner-up spot.

 

Sides quickly began to close in on Schatz in lapped traffic, with Day and Tim Kaeding right behind him. With less than 10 laps to go, the Top-Five were all under a blanket. Kaeding got around Day on the 24th lap to move into third, before the caution flew two laps later.

 

Schatz used a strong restart to pull away from Sides and Kaeding, when the caution flew with two laps to go. Again Schatz used a strong restart to jump to a comfortable lead, while Kaeding tried one last time to get around Sides, with the latter holding on for the second position.

 

For Sides, the runner-up finish was his best career result at the high-banked 1/3-mile. The 2003 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year started third after a strong run in the Crane Cams Dash and earned his 22nd Top-10 finish of the season.

 

“Second place is a good strong run here,” said Sides, driver of the Wetherington Tractor Services Maxim. “We have never finished in the Top-Five here. Any time we can run second to Donny (Schatz) and in front of (Tim) Kaeding at his home track is good for us. We’ll take it and go to Phoenix (Manzanita Speedway) and Perris (Auto Speedway) and hopefully keep it up.”

 

Kaeding who won the last World of Outlaws event at Thunderbowl Raceway on February 23, finished third, after starting seventh and getting around Jason Meyers on the eighth lap and then Kerry Madsen a lap later to move into the Top-Five, before setting his sights on Tim Shaffer.

 

“It was a great weekend for us,” said Kaeding, driver of the Tom Rolfe Trucking Maxim. “We did what we needed to do and that was run up front with these guys. We probably could have been a lot freer to get around these guys. We’ll go down to Perris next week and hopefully have some fun again.”

 

Ronnie Day finished second in the Crane Cams Dash to earn the outside front row starting position for the Dave Helm Memorial. Despite being under the weather all week long, he endured the rough track conditions to score a very strong fourth-place finish aboard the Ridgeline Framing Maxim.

 

“We’ll take it,” said Day. “That was a tough race. The track was sticky all night. We made big moves on the race car to try and make it better. The race car was a lot better than I was. I have had the flu all week and I felt kind of puny there at the end of the race. My chest was pretty heavy, but that’s no excuse. We should have run second and gave it away a little bit. Racing with these guys, you can’t give them an inch. It’s nice to run in the Top-Five with them.”

 

Kerry Madsen was fifth on Saturday night in the event honoring his late car owner. After winning the second heat in convincing fashion, he started fifth in the Crane Cams Dash and finished in that same spot in the dash and eventually in the A-Feature, to earn his 21st Top-10 finish of the season.

 

Tim Shaffer was sixth aboard the Casey’s General Store Maxim, with Jason Meyers in seventh in the Primerica Financial Maxim. Steve Kinser overcame some bad luck early in the night to finish eighth in the Q Oil Maxim, after winning the B-Main. Joey Saldana was ninth in the Open Joist JEI, with Craig Dollansky 10th in the Karavan Trailers Maxim.

 

Schatz made one of the best moves of the night on the last lap of the fourth heat, as he got around Terry McCarl to finish second and earn one of the Top-Eight spots in the Crane Cams Dash. Had he finished third in that, he would have lined up ninth for the Dash, but after finishing second, he was one of the eight drivers that got to draw for their starting position in the dash.

 

“I knew I was faster than Terry (McCarl) and waited until the right moment and got around him,” Schatz said. “Anytime you get in the dash draw, you can be one-through eight. When you are the last car to draw, as we were tonight, you get whatever number is left over and tonight it happened to be a one. That was a little bit of luck on our side and you have to have that too.”

 

Schatz was quick to credit his crew for their hard work throughout the night. He was fast early in the night, turning in the fourth quickest lap in time trials to earn two bonus points in the championship standings. Couple with Saldana’s ninth-place finish, Schatz now has over a 100 point lead in the World of Outlaws championship standings with four events remaining on the 2007 schedule.

 

“We played around with the car a little and made it a little better than it was in the heat race for the dash,” said the native of Fargo, North Dakota. “We analyzed all the data from earlier in the night and probably didn’t have as good of a car as we wanted in the feature, but we learned from our mistakes.”

 

Sides ran in the Top-Three all night long and on several occasions was very close to battling for the lead. He was glad to see the late caution fly, giving him one more chance to try and pass Schatz.

 

“I preferred the bottom at the start of the A-Feature and it worked out well for us,” said Sides. “We were good running on the bottom. I got under Ronnie (Day) there and though we had a chance at (Donny) Schatz). I thought he may run to the top and in lapped traffic I could try the bottom, but it didn’t work out for us.”

 

Toward the latter part of the race, Sides along with most every other driver was careful not to make any bold moves, knowing how rough the track. On several occasions he pulled wheelies off the fourth turn, getting several feet into the air.

 

“Once we got to traffic it was tough to pass,” he noted. “We got in line and followed the leader. You didn’t want to get out of line and make a mistake and get passed.”

 

Kaeding made one last run at Sides on the restart with two laps to go, but could not quite make the pass. The third-generation driver passed several strong cars though as he came from seventh to finish third.

 

“I just got down there a little too much and the thing got away from me,” said Kaeding. “I didn’t want to jeopardize a decent finish over one spot that I didn’t think I could get. We’ve been struggling the last couple of races with the 410 (engine) deal, so I am just glad to roll the thing in the trailer.”

 

It was a bittersweet night for Day. While he was pleased to finish in the Top-Five in one of only a handful of starts with the World of Outlaws this season in the Golden State, he was left to ponder what may have happened if there would have been a couple more long stretched of green flag racing. Early in the race, he was able to keep pace with Schatz in traffic.

 

“I was hoping for lapped traffic, because how we had our car I could move to the top and see if I could get around them,” said the veteran driver. “Every time we got to them, we would get in a lap or two and the yellow would come out and bunch everyone up. We never really got a shot at Donny (Schatz), but he did a heck of a job and deserved to win.”

 

After taking part in a tribute to Dave Helm earlier in the night, Madsen finished a very solid fifth at his team’s home track.

 

“I think we had a pretty good car in the feature and I made a mistake and dropped back,” said Madsen, driver of the Selma Shell Maxim. “I got back to fifth. Some times you get track conditions like that and you just have to make the best of it. All in all it was a good result and we are pretty happy with that.”

 

The World of Outlaws return to action on Friday, October 19 at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Arizona.
