Newsmaker of the Week // Donny Schatz

He came, he saw, he conquered, for the tenth time!

That’s the story of the 57th Knoxville Nationals, where a $150,000 first prize tempts the best 410 Sprint Car drivers in the world.

Despite the intensity, one man, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz has made the Knoxville Nationals his personal playground.

This time, David Gravel had him covered. But he blew up. Then Kyle Larson whistled by the Knoxville Master – but only for half a lap.

Then, it was over, Schatz in Victory Lane, savoriong a tenth Knoxville Nationals victory.

Any Sprint Car driver would give anything to win just one Nationals. Schatz has won ten.

And because of this supreme achievement – this year and in so many other years – Donny Schatz is the Area Auto Racing News Newsmaker Of The Week!
