WoO_2013If you have the racing blues due to the bad weather like I do, at least this coming Saturday, May 11 the World of Outlaws will be at Knoxville Raceway!  The Outlaws are headlined by five time series champion Donny Schatz and twenty time champion Steve Kinser.

Schatz is off to a slow start by his standards currently sitting third in the series point standings, but has two wins.  His first ten races he had an average finish of 9.3, and his last nine that has lowered to 6.7.  Once Schatz and crew chief Ricky Warner dial-in the new Hoosier tires they will tough to beat as usual.  Schatz is the defending and five time champion of the Knoxville Nationals and will be the favorite on May 11.  Season Stats: Wins-2, Top five-7, Top ten-13, Avg, finish-8.7.
