This October’s World of Outlaws double marks the first series appearance atop the racy 3/8-mile clay oval since July of 2015 when Memphis-area shoe Jason Sides and North Dakota’s Donny Schatz split victory honors.
Sides’ triumph proved as redemption for getting nipped at the line by Schatz two years earlier while Schatz’ victory marked his second win in the last five World of Outlaws events at DCRP for the now eight-time and reigning series champion.
While Sides and Schatz are the most recent series winners at DCRP, it’s Oklahoma native and 2013 WoO champion Daryn Pittman that has enjoyed the most success in recent years with three triumphs in the most recent five events including a two-night sweep of the 2014 “Boot Hill Showdown”.
Ten different drivers have reached DCRP victory lane in 21 World of Outlaws feature events dating back to 2004 with Joey Saldana atop the overall win charts with three triumphs. Saldana’s most recent “Boot Hill Showdown” triumph occurred on June 14, 2010.
With 17 series wins to his credit thus far in 2017, Donny Schatz holds a 90-point lead over Brad Sweet in his quest for a ninth World of Outlaws championship with David Gravel, Shane Stewart and Daryn Pittman also among the current top five in points.
