Schatz Leads 49 Laps To Capture 8th Knoxville Nationals Title

Donny Schatz led 49 of the 50 laps to win his eighth Knoxville Nationals in nine years last night.Schatz dominated the first half of the race leading by as much as a straightaway before the fuel stop at the halfway point. After the stop Schatz continued to lead but Brian Brown made things interesting when he passed Schatz lap 44 but Schatz told KNIA/KRLS he just gathered his emotions and retook the lead a lap later. Brown for the third straight year finished runner-up to Schatz while Kerry Madsen completed the podium.
