I was trying to check the board because I knew if [Schatz] was coming, I was going to have to do some searching,” Larson said in Victory Lane. Brad Sweet surged late and came within a half of a car-length at the checkered flag, finishing behind Schatz by just 0.189 seconds.
All reserved tickets include a free fan pit pass prior to racing. In total, Schatz has eight career wins at the high-banked 4/10th oval. “That 15 car man, he’s the best out here and the cleanest race car driver I have ever raced with,” Wilson said before thanking the Eldora Speedway track crew for providing an excellent dry-slick racing surface.
Brad Sweet settled for second and referenced how similar tonight was to Saturday’s Kings Royal, where he was trying to chase down Schatz on the cushion. Schatz and Mc Mahan battled for second with Schatz taking the position on Lap 3 and setting his sights on Starks.
“You know [Larson] is going to be tough to beat out front, I wasn’t making as much speed once the top in turns one and two went away. Schatz took a look underneath Starks on Lap 14 and completed the pass for the lead one lap later down the backstretch.
With the increased payday, a strong field of regional invaders will be on hand to try to steal the money from the World of Outlaws regulars. A lot of money is on the line during the month of July. I know if I do everything right, there’s not many people that will pass this 15 car, but Greg is one of them.
In addition to Pittman, full-time World of Outlaws drivers Kraig Kinser (2005), Jason Sides (2012), Donny Schatz (2015) and David Gravel (2015) have also visited Victory Lane at Pevely. I think we are all ready to get started,” nine-time Series Champion and current points leader Donny Schatz said in anticipation of the Month of Money. We’ve got to a get a little bit better tomorrow for 10 more laps or Greg will kick all our asses,” Schatz said in good spirits.
