Donny Schatz appeared to be unstoppable at Williams Grove Speedway as the Outlaws headed into Friday night’s feature event.

Schatz had won four straight events and was starting from the pole. Four laps from the end, Schatz’s domination ended at the hands of Don Kreitz Jr., who pulled off a surprise win after getting by Schatz four laps from the end of the 30-lap race.

Kreitz went on to win by 15 car-lengths.

“When we were staying right there at the beginning of the race with the hard tires, I thought we might be OK for a Top 5, but the way Donny’s been flying around this place I didn’t think there was any way we’d catch him, but the top kept going away,” Kreitz said.

Kreitz made his race-winning move as Schatz and Stevie Smith battled for the lead in traffic on Lap 26.

“We really caught a break there in traffic,” Kreitz explained. “Stevie tried to get by Donny and got hung up behind a lapped car, and the bottom opened up getting off the corner.”

Kreitz used the low groove in Turn 4 to pick off both drivers and emerge with the lead.

Schatz and Smith carried on to finish second and third. Tim Shaffer finished fourth, and Greg Hodnett crossed the line fifth.

Danny Lasoski finished seventh to close the gap on points leader Mark Kinser, who finished 10th. Lasoski is now 42 points off Kinser’s pace. Defending Outlaws champion Steve Kinser finished eighth.

Other winners on Friday night at Williams Grove were Paul McMahan, Mark Kinser, Billy Pauch and Dale Blaney in the heat races; Schatz in the Channellock Dash; and Curt Michael in the B feature.

The Outlaws continue an East Coast swing with a race at Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway on Saturday night.
