Race Results 

A last-ditch slide job with two laps to go helped Logan Schuchart etch his name into The Dirt Track at Charlotte history books on Friday. In a breathtaking finish to the Outlaw Showdown, Schuchart made a spectacular move on Brad Sweet in Turn 1 to collect his third World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars win of the season.

“I had a chance at Brad earlier in the race and I went to go in the corner and slide him just like I did (with two laps to go), but my throttle stuck and ran me way too far into the corner,” Schuchart said. “It’s great to win anywhere but to win in front of Charlotte’s fans, this is what makes our sport. … I have a great group of people behind me in the Shark Racing family. Brad drove a great race and I couldn’t catch him for a while, but some lapped cars got in his way and they helped me out. That’s what makes racing exciting. We were able to capitalize at the right time.”

Sweet held on for second ahead of Daryn Pittman, his Kasey Kahne Racing teammate. Sweet led the first 28 laps before surrendering the lead.

“If you look at the overall night it was good for us, but obviously you hate to lose one like that,” said Sweet, who won the pole, the dash and his heat race. “I don’t want to be a poor sport. Logan drove a great race. I struggled to get by those lapped cars. I just got stuck there. That’s what wins you or loses you those races. He did the better job there at the end and I just kind of got caught. I was a sitting duck. I’d kind of burned my tires out. I didn’t drive a great race, but hats off to our NAPA guys. They worked hard. It was good to put on a show for this great crowd.”

Defending series champion Donny Schatz wound up fourth with Greg Wilson, last year’s race winner, fifth. Kraig Kinser and Schatz joined Sweet as heat winners.
