The last time that Brooke Tatnell was leading an Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event with the cameras from SPEED rolling, he had an engine let go back in June.

For a while on Friday night in the opening feature of the second annual VAULT World Finals at The Dirt Track @ Lowe’s Motor Speedway, it appeared that history may repeat itself, as Tatnell’s car let off a heavy and steady stream of smoke early in the event, that doused the inside of the car with oil.

 

Following a red flag on the seventh lap, the car stopped smoking and Tatnell would go on to lead the remainder of the 30-lap contest to pick up the ninth A-Feature win of his World of Outlaws career, which was worth $10,000.

 

The native of San Souci, NSW, Australia, is filling in again this weekend for Craig Dollansky who continues to recover from an arm injury sustained at Eldora Speedway last month.

 

“This really means a lot to us,” said Tatnell. “We should have gotten one earlier this year with basically our own team and it didn’t happen that way. These guys have believed in me. Whether I have made mistakes or things have gone wrong, everyone has patted each other on the back said not to worry about it that we would get it the next time and would be all right. To have Craig (Dollansky) and Larry (Woodward) and everyone on this team to have faith in me and for me to be the driver they wanted in the car, to win is a great payback for them.”

 

Tatnell jumped to a quick lead in the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim, when pole sitter Terry McCarl’s car did not take off at the start. It was Tatnell’s fourth Top-10 finishes in his substitute roll with the team. He has had a couple of strong runs cut short by back luck, while running at the front of the field, and made up for that on Friday night, leading all 30 laps from start-to-finish.

 

“We’ve been thrown a lifeline here with Craig’s (Dollansky) misfortune,” Tatnell shared. “It’s been a lifeline for us to get out here and show people that we can do this.”

 

Early in the race, Tatnell’s car was emitting smoke in turns one and two and again in the third and fourth corners, though it did not seem to affect the performance of his car, as he opened a healthy lead on young Pennsylvania driver Cody Darrah, who jumped into second in the early going.

 

“I was a little nervous there for a while,” admitted the winner. “It was hard to see for one thing. It just seemed to be getting worse and worse. We then had that red (flag) and it just stopped. I don’t know what it was. The floor is all covered in oil, but if that’s what it takes, I’ll do it again.”

 

After falling back to fourth on the start, Terry McCarl was engaged in an epic battle with Donny Schatz. The pair traded the third spot four times in the first 15 laps of the 30-lap event. In lapped traffic, the duo was able to gain ground on second-place Darrah, while Tatnell continues to pull away.

 

After battling Darrah for over five laps, Schatz moved into the runner-up spot on the 16th circuit in heavy lapped traffic, and set his sights on Tatnell. The leader was held up by a couple of lapped cars, giving Schatz a chance to close to within a couple of car lengths of him. The final caution of the night flew with 10 laps remaining, giving Tatnell a clear track ahead of him to finish the race.

 

“I think we were pretty good in open track and the track was so fast,” explained the veteran driver. “Even in lapped cars we were pretty good and I got by a couple up high and they were in the middle and bottom. It obviously helped to have clean track. It’s always a handy helper, especially when you have (Donny) Schatz behind you.”

 

Lapped traffic with five laps remaining gave Schatz one more chance at Tatnell. As the laps wound down, he was able to reel in the leader, but could not quite get enough of a run on him to attempt a pass. The final margin of victory was just over four-tenths of a second. The runner-up finish helped Schatz claim his third consecutive World of Outlaws championship, joining Steve Kinser as the only driver to win three titles in a row, in his first season driving the Armor All J&J for Tony Stewart Racing.

 

“We’re happy we got the title, but we were here to win the race tonight,” said Schatz. “I thought we had a good chance to. The car was awesome before that yellow came out. I didn’t do my job after the yellow. The last ten laps, I didn’t run the car right. I let the tires cool off and never got them back, and that’s my fault. We’re pumped to have the championship, but we gave away a race and that’s not what our job is and we are disappointed with that.”

 

McCarl wound up third in the Big Game Treestands Maxim, to pick up his 10th finish of eighth or better in the last 11 races. Since his win at Orange County Fair Speedway in New York last month, the six-time Knoxville Raceway and Huset’s Speedway track champion has finished outside the Top-10 just once.

 

“We’re a little disappointed,” admitted McCarl. “I feel like we had the fastest car here. We thought we had a motor problem on the last lap of the dash and Don Ott came over and checked everything out and everything looked ok. On the start, we just didn’t take off. We started it before the race and got plenty of heat in it and did everything we could do. Once we got going, I think we were the fastest car.”

 

Steve Kinser, the 20-time series champion started eighth and finished fourth in the Q Oil Maxim. Cody Darrah was fifth aboard the J&K Salvage Maxim to record his best career World of Outlaws finish.

 

Daryn Pittman finished sixth in the Titan Garages Maxim, with Jac Haudenschild in seventh, piloting the Owens-Corning Fiberglass Maxim. Jason Meyers, who won the inaugural ‘Breaking the VAULT’ dashes on Thursday night, finished eighth in the GLR Investments KPC. Fred Rahmer was ninth aboard the Miller Bros. J&J. Wayne Johnson rounded out the Top-10 in the Iriquois Poker machine.

 

Schatz and McCarl were battling tooth and nail for the third spot during the first half of the race. They nearly made contact entering turn three just past the halfway point, with Schatz backing out of the throttle to avoid contact.

 

“We were going back and forth with Terry (McCarl) and he wanted the spot pretty bad,” noted the North Dakota native. “He has been running pretty good the last month and I had no choice. I guess I could have clobbered him, but that’s not the way I do it. You deal with and get over it. We got past it and found a way to get back around him and kept going.”

 

Schatz would like nothing more than to cap his championship winning season with a win on Saturday night. He turned the fifth quickest lap on Thursday night in the second round of time trials which set the field for Saturday night’s event.

 

“We have to be just a little better than we were tonight,” said Schatz, when asked what it would take to win the finale of the VAULT World Finals. “We were awesome before that yellow. You have to be in the right place at the right time. You have to be in the dash and this place is really fast and it’s tough to come through (the field) here. Hopefully we’ll put ourselves in the Top-two of the heat race and the rest will come on its own.”

 

Like Tatnell, McCarl’s engine was letting off a great deal of smoke in the early laps as well. Just like the winners engine, it stopped smoking as well after the lap 7 red flag.

 

“These motors kind of do that,” explained the Iowa native. “Brooke (Tatnell) was blowing some smoke too and I thought if Brooke blows up, it might be both of us blowing up in a minute. I’m happy for Brooke. He needed that win and with Craig’s team going through a tough time with his injury. If you have to lose one, that’s a good team to win. Brooke did a great job.”

 

McCarl didn’t really want to see the final caution with 10 flags, mainly because his engine was not quite taking off on the starts. After a couple of laps on the restarts, McCarl would get back up to speed.

 

“If we could have got out front in clean air, I don’t think anyone could have touched us, like the dash or the heat race,” said McCarl. “We’re happy to run third, but disappointed since we had the car to beat. I am a rhythm driver and the longer runs are good for me. I wish it would have gone non-stop, because if it had, I think we could have won the thing.”

 

The second annual VAULT World Finals continue on Saturday night with the finale of the third-day event, with all the action being televised live on SPEED beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern. Friday’s portion of the event was taped for broadcast and will air on Saturday, November 8.
