Schatz Runs Down Abreu At Attica

ATTICA, Ohio — Ten-time World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series champion Donny Schatz made a late-race charge to grab his first victory of the season Friday night at Attica Raceway Park. Schatz slid past Rico Abreu for the lead coming to the white flag and held on for the victory. He slipped by Carson Macedo by using a big run off the bottom of turn two with less than 10 laps to go. After securing the runner-up spot, Schatz set his sights on Abreu, who was struggling to navigate lapped traffic. After only a couple laps, Schatz closed on the tail tank of the No. “We just kind of had to go where they weren’t,” Schatz said. Behind Schatz, Abreu settled for second after leading the opening 33 circuits. “I feel like I let them down a little bit there, but you put yourself in different circumstances when you’re leading races. “I feel like we had a shot to win there, and then we ended up running third,” Macedo said.
