In his win Saturday at the Knoxville Nationals Donny Schatz set two records during the running of Saturday’s A-Main. When he led his 11th lap of the race he surpassed 12-time Champion Steve Kinser for the most A-Main laps led with 320, breaking Kinser’s record of 301. He also led his 14th Nationals championship race which broke a tie with Kinser. If Schatz keeps in on usual pace of winning the Knoxville Nationals, he should win his 13th and record breaking Nationals as a driver in the year 2020.
