Wild Title Fight, Massive Purse Set Stage For Biggest Empire State Challenge

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. — The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns to Weedsport Speedway for the biggest Empire State Challenge in the history of the event. Donny Schatz is tied as the winningest driver at Weedsport in series competition. Steve Kinser is the only other driver to have topped a trio of Weedsport races. Schatz has also been wildly consistent through all of his attempts with a 2.3 average finish at Weedsport. The Watertown, Conn. native is a two-time Weedsport victor, topping back-to-back races from 2021 to 2022. Like Schatz, Gravel has made six Series starts and only missed the top five once. The “Buckeye Bullet” topped the 1993 visit to Weedsport for one of his 15 victories that season. Over the last few years, a handful of locals have asserted themselves as consistent contenders whenever the World of Outlaws invade Weedsport.
