When the World of Outlaws comes to the Knoxville Raceway, it seems Donny Schatz almost always wins. With the tragic loss of fellow racer Jason Johnson in their last event, Schatz took everyone behind the woodshed and led all 25 laps to capture his 12th win of the season. When he got out of his car he gestured with his hands the number 41, which was Johnson’s number. Schatz paid his respects to Johnson after his victory lane celebration. Schatz has little trouble maneuvering through traffic as he won by over three seconds. 2017 Knoxville 410 Champion and Outlaws Rookie Ian Madsen was second while David Gravel finished third. The 305 show produced a new winner in 2018, Kelby Watt, who blew a motor in a test session early in the season got his first win of the season. Tonight they do it all over again with the World of Outlaws and the 360 sprints at the Knoxville Raceway.
