2015 Knoxville Nationals Results Led By Donny Schatz

2015 Knoxville Nationals Results Led By Donny Schatz2015 Knoxville Nationals results are in and Donny Schatz Roars to His Ninth FVP Knoxville Nationals Championship!

Knoxville, IA, August 15, 2015 – If anyone had any doubts as to whether or not Donny Schatz was going to earn his ninth Knoxville Nationals title, the North Dakota native made a statement by leading 50 laps flag-to-flag to win the 55th running of the FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Store.

Making wholesale moves through traffic in the closing laps, Donny was asked about the very close passes, “It’s not the traffic that was bothering me. It was the restarts. It’s my job to get through traffic. If I can’t then I’m probably going to lose my job. The past couple weeks, seem like people get a run on you and can slide you, so you just had to do something different. One time I’d go to the bottom, one time I’d go to the top and keep mixing it up, but it’s hard to do that without mixing yourself up.”

“The boss was here tonight. Can’t thank him [Tony Stewart] enough for all the support to allow us to be with Bad Boy Buggies, Chevrolet Performance, and all our marketing partners to do what we love to do.”

Taking off from the pole, Donny Schatz jumped to the lead with Kerry Madsen in tow. Working low on the Knoxville Raceway, the Tony Stewart Racing No. 15 was joined by the No. 29 of Kerry Madsen who railed the cushion.

Closing on the lead on the third rotation, Madsen continued to build momentum, pulling to the back bumper Schatz off the fourth turn as the No. 15 swapped lines to the high side down the front stretch to block the run of the American Racing Custom Wheels No. 29.

Keeping Donny within sight as the leaders hit traffic on Lap 10, the Bad Boy Buggies No. 15 found roads blocked, allowing Madsen to close in once again. With a full head of steam on Lap 12, Donny put a pair of slower cars between him and Madsen; leaving the Aussie to contend with Danny Lasoski.

Coming from sixth, the GoMuddy.com No. 2 worked cushion to hub on the Knoxville Raceway, trading second with Madsen as the caution flew on Lap 16 for the No. 41 of Jason Johnson who shredded the left rear tire.

Underway, Madsen kept pace into the first two turns with Lasoski in line. Unable to do anything with the No. 15, the race for second saw Lasoski taking the spot on Lap 25, just as the field came to the mid-point break.

Changing gears on the No. 15 during the five minute break, Schatz took the high line with Danny charging low. Unable to advance to the lead, Donny began pulling away as Danny worked to hold his second position, but would slip to fourth on Lap 32 as Kerry Madsen flew by on the cushion with Brad Sweet taking the low line.

Watching as the No. 15 pulled away with a 2.104 second advantage, the red flag flew on Lap 35 for the No. 51 of Paul McMahan who tripped the cushion in turn four battling for eighth with Bryan Clauson. Quick work by the Pit Crew put the CJB Motorsports No. 51 back on track for the restart.

Splitting lines on the restart, Madsen again could not make work of the No. 15, but again had to contend with Brad Sweet. Working low on Lap 37, Brad Sweet all but had Madsen cleared, only to see the No. 29 squeeze between his Right Rear Tire and the wall.

Going back and forth for the runner-up spot, the pair kept Schatz within seven tenths of a second as the caution waved again on Lap 40.

Again keeping Schatz to under a second advantage, the pair worked to traffic on Lap 48 with Schatz boxed in by back markers. With the center line barely open, Donny threaded the needle, putting the finishing touches on his ninth FVP Knoxville Nationals victory; crossing 1.363 seconds ahead of Kerry Madsen.

“I tried as hard as possible to get it done. I got behind him in dirty air and was just was jumping around on the cushion like an idiot, but I wasn’t going to leave anything on the table,” said Madsen. “I thought it was on there. I thought I had a quicker car and I just apologize for not getting the job done but he didn’t make a mistake the last 15 laps. I was ready to pounce, but it didn’t happen.”

Holding on for third was Brad Sweet after a hard battle with the No. 29.

“I tell you what this is a huge step in the right direction for Kasey Kahne Racing and the Ollie’s Bargain Barn Outlet. The car was really good. We hit on some stuff at the Front Row Challenge and we carried some momentum into here and when the time to hit it right in the A-Main was right, we hit it. I really didn’t want to see those yellows because I really felt like we were more maneuverable than the guys in front of us, but hats off to Donny. He makes it really hard to win this race.”

Coming on strong in the second half of the feature event, Shane Stewart came from 12th to fourth with Joey Saldana completing the top-five. From 14th, Brian Brown crossed sixth with Daryn Pittman going from 15th to seventh. Having battled up front for so many laps, Danny Lasoski slipped to finish eighth with Lucas Wolfe ninth and Greg Hodnett earning hard-charger honros in tenth from the 23rd starting spot.

Wayne Johnson led the distance to win the B-Feature. Running second at the white flag, Bill Balog ended up with the win in the C-Feature as Davey Heskin ran out of fuel on the final lap. D-Feature action was topped by Josh Baughman. Jimmy Light captured the win in the E-Feature, becoming the first driver in the history of the Knoxville Nationals to win the consolation feature twice; Light also won the event in 2014.

Best appearing car for the 55th FVP Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Store, worth $500, went to Justin Henderson for the third season running. Lance Moss and Dusty Zomer completed the top three. Best appearing crew was won by Ian Madsen’s team who also won $500. Wayne Johnson and Kraig Kinser’s crews completed the podium.

Aaron Reutzel earned Rookie of the Year in the Roth Motorsports No. 83. The “Jesse Hockett Mr. Sprint Car” Southern Iowa Sprintweek title went to Terry McCarl.

Presidential Candidate Donald Trump Sprint Car Sponsorship

Donald Trump Sprint Car Sponsorship PhotosThe Donald Trump sprint car will be driven by Roger Crockett at Knoxville Raceway tonight. The event is the famed 55th annual Knoxville Nationals which is presented by Casey General Stores. The driver from Medford, OR will start 23rd in the E Main.

Click here to view the full starting lineup for tonight’s Knoxville Nationals event.

The team suffered a blown motor in preliminary action but they will start the show tonight. The dirt sprint car is owned by Bruce Williams.

Donald Trump is making appearances in Iowa today. Right now the Republican Presidential Candidate is making a speech at the Iowa State Fair.

It came together at the last minute. Apparently, the deal had to role through Trump’s lawyers before the graphics went on the sprint car. Understandably, those guys are surely busy as Donald Trump leads most polls across the board when it comes to the Republican Presidential campaign.

The Donald Trump sprint car driven by Roger Crocket rolled into the second night of qualifying for the Knoxville Nationals with a new wing. The sprint car was now wrapped supporting Trump’s logo, which says “Make America Great Again.” It has gained quite a bit of attention throughout the weekend.

The SKS Racing team has stated, Trump is helping out with tires and fuel. The Trump tour bus has a spot reserved at the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and is currently parked in that location.

“We have a lot of messages on our car,” Williams said of the Donald Trump sprint car. “We have the military on one side and cancer awareness on the other side.

“We are all about sending a message out. I believe Trump is a supporter of both the military and cancer research, and they are good people.”

“A friend of mine has a party bus, and he wrapped Donald Trump’s logo on it for Tana Goertz, who is his Iowa campaign manager,” Williams team member Jeff Morris said.

“They are going around to the Iowa State Fair and other places where there are a lot of people. So when they wrapped the bus, they asked if we would wrap our race car for this week’s Knoxville Nationals.”

Continued Morris, “We told them there is about 30,000 people down here, so they thought it was a good idea.”

“Trump Racing fans come see us at the #TrumpBus @KnoxvilleNats tonight we are near the hall of fame entrance”

Donald Trump is the Emmy-nominated star and co-producer of the reality television series, “The Apprentice” which quickly became the number one show on television, making ratings history and receiving rave reviews and world wide attention. “The Celebrity Apprentice” has met with great success as well, being one of the highest rated shows on television.

The Apprentice’s record fourteenth season premiered in January, 2015. “You’re fired!” is listed as the third greatest television catchphrase of all time. In 2007, Mr. Trump received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he is among the highest paid public speakers in the world. The Apprentice has raised over $15 million for charity.

Donald Trump was born in Queens, New York. He is married to Melania Trump and father to Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Barron. He is a proud grandfather of seven.

McKenna Haase First Female Sprint Car Driver Win At Knoxville Raceway

McKenna Haase First Female Sprint Car Driver Feature Win At Knoxville Raceway

McKenna Haase Portrait Photo Female Sprint Car Driver Knoxville RacewayKnoxville, IA, May 16, 2015 – McKenna Haase made history in the 305 class as she became the first female sprint car driver winner in a sprint car at the historic Knoxville Raceway. Wayne Johnson scored his 11th career win in the 360 class. Justin Henderson had no peer in driving the BDS Motorsports #1 to victory in 410 action at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday. His seventh career win was worth $3,000.

Before a lap could get completed in the 15-lap 305 feature, Brad Bowman flipped in turn one. Fellow rookie Trevor Smith was also involved and the pair were uninjured, but done for the night. Another rookie, Chase Wanner, took the early lead, while McKenna Haase moved into second was negated when the caution flew for debris on the track.

On the restart, Wanner led Tanner Edwards, Haase, Chris Walraven and J Kinder back to green. Just two more laps were in the books before Kevin Hetrick spun. Kinder shot from sixth to third on the restart. On lap four, Ben Woods got into the wall, as the yellow flag flew again.

While Wanner was using the cushion, McKenna Haase found the inside groove to her liking, and she shot by the leader on lap six. Two more cautions would come out, one for Rob Weuve on lap seven, and one for Tanner Edwards on lap 11. Haase shot away from the field in clean air to record the first ever sprint car win by a female in Knoxville Raceway history. Wanner, Kinder,Stacey Alexander and Kade Higday followed her to the checkers. Hard-charger, Mitchell Alexander, Chris Walraven, Hetrick, Mike Mayberry and Devin Kline rounded out the top ten. Haase set quick time, while Stacey Alexander, Higday and Mitchell Alexander took the heat races.

“I don’t think it’s sank in yet,” said McKenna Haase, who will graduate from Carlisle High School on Sunday. “This was the night I told everyone I wanted to win, because I wanted to be on a podium two days in a row. This is a dream come true!”

Join us next Saturday night, May 23 for Pizza Hut Night! All three divisions of Knoxville Championship Cup Series sprint cars will be back in action. For more information on the Knoxville Raceway, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISIS Message Posted

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISIS

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISIS Message Posted, Tony Stewart Responds

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISISThe famed Eldora Speedway website hacked with ISIS message posted. The dirt track is owned by NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart. The message was linked to the Islamic extremist group known as ISIS. The FBI was called in.

It’s highly likely this what not an ISIS attack. Their were a number of quite random attacks that took place today including the Moerlein Lager House, Montgomery Inn, MERS Goodwill and Elasticity being hacked by an unknown group.

The message was promptly removed by website administrators, which read ‘Hacked by Islamic State. We Are Everywhere :).

At 4:25 PM  the track had a new message posted on their website

America’s Favorite Track’s website is once again as safe as our $2 beer prices. Thank you to the Darke County Sheriff, FBI & GoDaddy for their quick response.

Tony Stewart spoke with USA Today Sports about the incident. The Eldora Speedway owner and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart responded by saying, “If there’s anybody I’d want mad at me, I guess it would be them.”
