GRAND FORKS — Donny Schatz won the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks.
It was the 10th series win for Schatz, the Fargo driver who saw victory in his sprint car and NLRA late model. He claimed first home state win of the year with the World of Outlaws — eighth of the season and 291st overall. And he reclaimed the points lead over Brad Sweet — now leading the Kasey Kahne Racing driver by 24 points.
Schatz found his rhythm and ran a blistering pace for the final 23 laps. He weaved through traffic with ease, pulled away to a 6-second lead and lapped up to ninth-place — including Sweet, who finished 13th.
Schatz was scheduled to race in West Fargo on Saturday, but the event was canceled due to heavy rain.
