For the week: August 4 through August 10, 2014
Knoxville, Iowa might as well be known from here on in as Schatzville.
For the eighth time in his illustrious Sprint Car career, Donny Schatz captured the prestigious Knoxville Nationals checkered flag Saturday night at the home of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.
Schatz dominated the A-main saturday, but had to defend his turf against a determined Brian Brown. Brown gave Schatz a scare late, but Schatz, a five-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, wouldn’t be denied.
With the win, the Fargo, North Dakota driver has finished first or second in 12 of his last 14 Knoxville Nationals.
For his dominant performance at Knoxville, Donny Schatz is this week’s Maxima Racing Oils Dominator. Schatz will receive a product certificate from Maxima Racing Oils.
