Hard-Fought Win: Joey Saldana victorious for second straight time in FVP Missouri High Banked Nationals

by Tony Veneziano

OSBORN, Mo. — Sept. 17, 2016 — Joey Saldana has long been known as one of the most fit drivers on the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series. All of that fitness came in handy on Saturday night as Saldana was victorious over Jason Johnson, another driver that puts a large emphasis on physical training. The pair waged a thrilling duel late in the race on a blazing fast and very physically demanding track at U.S. 36 Raceway in the FVP Missouri High Banked Nationals for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and National Sprint League.

The win for Saldana was his second straight at U.S. 36 Raceway and the fifth of the 2016 season. Also, it was his first victory since June 22. Saldana now has 99 career A-Feature wins with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series as he looks to become just the sixth driver in series history to cross the century mark. The win was also special for Saldana as it was his son, Ragan’s, sixth birthday.

Fiver Finger Victory: Donny Schatz Steals Win in the Arnold Motor Supply Shootout at Clay County Fair Speedway

by Tony Veneziano

SPENCER, Iowa — Sept. 16, 2016 — Donny Schatz only led two laps on Friday night in the Arnold Motor Supply Shootout at Clay County Fair Speedway, but they were the most important two — the final two — as he picked up his fifth-career win at the track. Schatz used a strong restart on a green-white-checker finish to snatch the win from Daryn Pittman, who paced the opening 28 laps.

Pittman started on the pole and was the dominant car for the majority of the 30-lap race, opening big leads in lapped traffic on several occasions. On the green-white checker restart, Schatz dove low in turns one and two and cleared Pittman to take the lead. Pittman looked to the high side of turn four and then low in turns one and two on the white flag lap, to no avail as he tried to get back by Schatz.
