Capping the Year In Style: Schatz Wins Finale of VAULT World Finals LIVE on SPEED

After wrapp ing up his third consecutive Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series title on Friday night during the second annual VAULT World Finals, with

a runner-up finish, Donny Schatz was determined to return to the track on Saturday and close the season with a win. He did exactly that leading all 30 laps in dominant fashion live on SPEED to pick up his series-best 18th A-Feature win of 2008.

 

 

Schatz, who won the Crane Cams Dash to earn the pole position, powered his way into turns one and two at the start and never looked back en route to the $10,000 victory, which was the 88th of his career with the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series.

 

“We just had an awesome race car for how the track was,” noted Schatz. “There wasn’t a lot of moving around, but man it was fast. It was one of the faster tracks that we have been on in a while. This thing was on a rail. The motor ran great and we had the car working well. We started up front, which was a major bonus and had to be smart for 30 laps.”

 

On the opening start, Jason Sides looked low on Schatz exiting turns three and four and that was the biggest challenge that the leader would face all night. Schatz did have one tense moment during the 30-lap event, as he went three-wide with a couple of lapped cars on the 18th circuit in turn two aboard the Armor All J&J.

 

“I took a couple of chances in lapped traffic and split a couple of guys, and that’s where the fun is,” he said with a smile. “I’m glad to be in that position where we are able to do that.”

 

Along with winning the title this season for his team, Schatz helped his engine builder Shaver Specialties claim the 2008 Crane Cams Engine Builder Challenge which pit four different engine manufacturers against each other over the course of the year. While they had great horsepower all season, Schatz’s team tried a couple of different combinations during the VAULT World Finals, which paid off immensely as they helped Chevrolet claim their first World of Outlaws championship.

 

“We probably learned more about our motor package this weekend, than we had in six months,” explained the North Dakota native. “That’s something that we really wanted and needed. I can’t say enough about these guys. We had Ron Shaver (engine builder) here and I don’t know without him here if we would have found what we did. We’re stoked about that and we can’t wait for 2009.”

 

After nine-plus months of racing and countless tens of thousands of miles on the road, Schatz was quick to credit his team led by crew chief Ricky Warner along with Shane Bowers and Kyle Sundby for their endless dedication to him and the team.

 

“I get all the limelight, but they are the ones that do all the work on this deal day in and day out,” shared the champion. “They put in the miles up and down the road. Most importantly they put their faith in me every time I get in the race car. I don’t think I have a guy that doesn’t have 110 percent in me and 110 percent in the car and that’s what it’s all about.”

 

After winning titles the last two seasons while driving for his family owned team, Schatz made the move to Tony Stewart Racing this season, and with his title this season became just the third driver in the 30-year existence of the World of Outlaws to claim three titles. He became the only driver other than 20-time series champion Steve Kinser to win three consecutive championships. Schatz was looking forward to getting to call Stewart for the 18th time after a victory on Saturday night.

 

“I think he’ll be excited,” admitted Schatz when asked about his boss. “He didn’t put any pressure on us this week. He just said all you have to do is win two nights. He knows how hard these things are to drive and how much work it takes from everybody. He is very appreciative of what we have done. We are glad to do it for him.”

 

Kraig Kinser made it a one-two sweep for Tony Stewart Racing on Saturday night as came home a very solid second, after lining up fourth in the Bass Pro Shops Maxim. He got around Terry McCarl on the opening lap to move into third and then used a strong restart with 11 laps to go to dive under Jason Sides in turns one and two.

 

“It was a real good night, especially with it being a television night,” said the third generation driver. “It was a great race. We stayed in there and kept at it. Jason (Sides) ran a great race and left the bottom open on the restart and we got a good run on him to take that spot. It was a great run for the team.”

 

Jason Meyers did everything he could late in the race to catch Kinser and was right on him during the last two laps. He wound up third in the GLR Investments KPC to earn his series leading 48th Top-Five finish of the year. It was his 14th third-place run of the season.

 

“About two or three more laps and I think we would have had a heck of a race for the lead in lapped traffic,” Meyers said. “Donny (Schatz) did a good job tonight and Kraig (Kinser) had a good run. My guys did a great job. We had a good car to come from sixth to third. I am very happy.”

 

Daryn Pittman also got around Sides on the lap 19 restart and finished fourth in the Titan Garages Maxim. Sides was fifth in the Wetherington Tractor Service Maxim.

 

Steve Kinser came all the way from the 14th starting spot to run sixth in the Q Oil Maxim, to earn the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award. Brooke Tatnell, who won the opener of the VAULT World Finals on Friday night, was seventh in the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim, with Terry McCarl eighth in the Big Game Treestands Maxim. Cody Darrah was ninth in the J&K Salvage Maxim, with Ed Lynch Jr. rounding out the Top-10 in the Howard Concrete J&J.

 

During the middle stages of the race, Kinser patiently worked on Jason Sides, trying a couple of different lines to see where his car worked best. As the leaders entered lapped traffic with three laps to go, he was able to gain a little ground on his teammate, as they recorded their second one-two finish this season.

 

“I was pretty confident with my car and we were pretty good on top and pretty good on the bottom,” he noted. “Maybe if we had gotten to a little heavier traffic it may have helped.”

 

Meyers, who matched his career-best finish in points with a runner-up performance led the World of Outlaws in a number of statistical categories this season, including laps led, Top-Five finished and fast time honors in time trials. He also won a career-best eight A-Feature events along with a preliminary feature.

 

“We had a great year and we wish we were standing on the top of the podium tonight,” he said. “We had to come from the back of the dash tonight and worked hard. We decided to test some stuff for next year and learned a lot tonight. It was a good night on all fronts. I’m looking forward to a little break and coming back on all cylinders.”

 

The Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series wraps up the 2008 season on Sunday night with the series annual Awards Banquet in Charlotte, North Carolina.
