North Dakota native Donny Schatz swept both races at River Cities Speedway last year en route to winning his seventh World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series title. In the event in June, Schatz took the lead from pole sitter Dusty Zomer early in the race on his way to the win. In August, Schatz battled Paul McMahan throughout the 40-lap contest, eventually taking the top spot with just eight laps remaining. For Schatz, it was his series-leading sixth win at River Cities Speedway.
Joey Saldana has a pair of wins at River Cities Speedway in his World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series career, with the first coming in the series inaugural event at high-banked bullring in 2007. He also won at the track in 2010. Daryn Pittman, the 2013 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series champion, won for the first time at River Cities Speedway in 2014.
The 2016 season is well under way for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, with Brad Sweet leading the standings over Shane Stewart. Sweet, who drives for Kasey Kahne Racing, has five wins thus far in 2016. Stewart has been a model of consistency, as he is tied with Sweet for having the most top-10 finishes. Daryn Pittman, the 2013 series champion, is currently third in points and has three wins. Schatz, who is tied for the series lead with five wins for his Tony Stewart Racing team, sits fourth in the standings. Joey Saldana rounds out the current top-five in the standings.
Battling the aforementioned five drivers in 2016 is a talented group of full-time competitors, including veteran drivers Paul McMahan, Terry McCarl and Jason Sides, up-and-coming young drivers, David Gravel, who has a victory already this season, Logan Schuchart and Jacob Allen, as well as sophomore driver Jason Johnson, who won earlier this season in California and rookie contender Greg Wilson from Ohio.
