The 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder moved over to The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Friday as World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series points leader Donny Schatz captured his 11th win of the season and eighth victory at the lightning-fast, four-tenths-mile clay oval in the Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown.

Tony Stewart Racing's Schatz, the all-time event winner at Charlotte, led the field to the green flag but lost the lead going into Turn 1 as Kraig Kinser drove past him on the bottom of the track. Kinser quickly stretched his lead to over a second as Schatz struggled to keep up on the high side.

Schatz moved from the cushion down to the low side on lap 7 and started cutting into Kinser's lead as both drivers weaved their way through lap traffic. After Jamie Veal and Kory Crabtree spun and brought out the second caution flag of the race on lap 12, Schatz shot past Kinser on the outside on the restart and jumped out to a three second lead.

David Gravel took second place from Kinser, who faded to a sixth-place finish, on lap 17, and got within a car length of Schatz with two laps remaining before running out of time as Schatz led the final 18 laps en route to the victory. Gravel finished second, his best finish at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, followed by Daryn Pittman, Shane Stewart and Paul McMahan.

"I couldn't hear him [Gravel] but I figured somebody had to be [behind me]," said Schatz. "We got to traffic and there were guys running the bottom and guys ripping around the top and I just couldn't seem to make anything happen to get through. If you're leading the race and you're backpedaling you have to know somebody's coming…sometimes you win them that way and sometimes you lose them that way.

"Thanks to everybody involved and all the fans, thank you guys for being here." 

In the SECA Late Model Series A-Main, 20-year-old Trent Ivey took home his first win at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, outracing veteran drivers Rambo Franklin and Ricky Weeks.

It was a slow start for the 25-lap race that had two caution flags on the first lap. Once the race got up to speed, Ivey led the first eleven laps before Weeks took the lead and the two drivers battled fiercely for the top spot. It would be Ivey who emerged victorious in the end, followed by Franklin, who was able to get passed Weeks in the final laps. Zack Mitchell and Corey Gordon rounded out the top five.

The SECA B-Mains held earlier in the evening were won by Joey Coulter and Ryan Atkins.
