STEVE KINSER & DONNY SCHATZ
Tony Stewart Racing Tandem Shoots for Better Results in California Doubleheader
INDIANAPOLIS (March 20, 2013) – Just as a number of college basketball teams are hoping to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow over the next three weeks of NCAA March Madness play, the best Winged Sprint car drivers are seeking gold this weekend with a pair of World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series events in The Golden State of California. Tony Stewart Racing’s (TSR) Donny Schatz and Steve Kinser look to rebound from a tough weekend at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., by christening Stockton 99 Dirt Track Friday and returning to Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico for the annual Mini Gold Cup Saturday.
Friday’s inaugural appearance by “The Greatest Show on Dirt” at Stockton 99 Dirt Track will be the first of three races at new facilities this season. Both TSR drivers have been maiden winners at several facilities throughout their careers, including each in the past two seasons. In September 2011, Kinser raced to victory at Antioch (Calif.) Speedway, leading the final five laps to become the track’s first Outlaw winner. Last season, Schatz dominated the Outlaws’ first visit to Cornwall (Ontario) Motor Speedway, leading all 30 laps of the A-Feature. That win started his monumental run to a fifth WoO STP Sprint Cars Series title.
