KNOXVILLE, Iowa - Two-time NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series champion Tony Stewart announced tonight that World of Outlaws Sprint Series star and defending champion Donny Schatz will join Tony Stewart Racing beginning with the 2008 season.

Schatz will drive a second WoO Sprint Series car that will compete alongside the No. 20 Bass Pro Shops/Chevrolet machine currently driven by Paul McMahan.

“I’m excited about joining forces with a proven winner,” said Schatz, a proven winner himself having won over 80 WoO races, including 13 this year. “Tony Stewart has been a winner in everything he does, and his race team is no different. His organization has always been, and will continue to be, top-notch.”

Upon the conclusion of the 2007 racing season, Donny Schatz Motorsports (DSM) will merge with TSR.

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Donny Schatz into our organization,” said Stewart, TSR team owner. “To have the opportunity to work with a driver of his caliber is a great opportunity for all of us. His skill behind the wheel will continue to help TSR grow into a stronger race team.

“Just as Levi Jones, Tracy Hines and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., have made our USAC program better, and just as Paul McMahan has provided stability to our World of Outlaws team, Donny will only add to our open-wheel presence.”

Schatz will continue to pilot his familiar No. 15. The Chevrolet-powered winged sprint car will be overseen by crew chief Ricky Warner, who joined TSR in June. Sponsorship for the No. 15 team will be announced in the near future.

“Ricky and I have a tremendous relationship,” said Schatz, who teamed with Warner to win last year’s title. “The chemistry we have is what makes it work. We motivate each other to keep getting better and better. Together we feel like we’re capable of doing just about anything. Ricky and I did a lot of special things last year, and we’re looking forward to the future with this new team."
