Race Results

CONCORD, N.C. (Nov. 3, 2017) – High speeds and high drama converged during a spectacular Friday night of Textron Off Road World of Outlaws World Finals racing at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. The second night of World Finals action saw Donny Schatz collect his 249th World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars victory after 30 laps of adrenaline-charged, wheel-to-wheel racing on Charlotte’s high-speed, four-tenths-mile oval.

Schatz – who has already clinched his ninth series championship and fourth in a row – had a tough road to victory on Friday. He started third in the feature but managed to out-maneuver Ian Madsen and Bill Balog, the top two starters, in the first half of the 30-lap event.

The Tony Stewart Racing driver held off Madsen by 0.376 seconds after a six-lap shootout to the finish. Dave Blaney, Kerry Madsen and Joey Saldana completed the top five.

“This team worked awful hard all year,” Schatz said. “We’ve been stuck on 19 (wins), so to get to 20 is good. It actually sucks that the season’s over (after Saturday) because we’re rolling, but the guys deserve some time off to be with their families. We enjoy the hell out of winning. That’s for sure.”

David Gravel, Paul McMahan, Saldana, Daryn Pittman, Blaney and Jason Johnson captured heat victories. Madsen and Balog won dashes.
