The king of the Big E was back at it again this weekend. During his second trip to Eldora Speedway this season, World of Oulaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car driver Logan Schuchart continued his hot streak at the famed Ohio dirt track after racing to back-to-back BeFour the Crown Showdown victories.
Although all eyes were pointed to Oklahoma City’s Wayne Johnson, who earned his second pole position of the season, as well as on Donny Schatz, who stole the show after charging to the lead after the wave of the green flag and cruising away with the lead for the next 21 laps. Despite Schatz’s Carquest No. 15 dominating the majority of this race, Schuchart, who charged from fifth to second in the opening laps of this race, was breathing down the neck of this Sprint Car legend.
As the laps wound down Schuchart thought he would miss out on his chance to earn back-to-back wins at one of the biggest races of the 2021 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink season. That is until two race stoppages for Brad Sweet, who suffered a flat right rear on the Kasey Kahne Racing, NAPA Auto Parts #49 not only once, but twice, and a bit of lapped traffic gave the driver of the No. 1S a chance to catch Schatz and pull off the pass on Lap 22 and never look back.
Along with back-to-back BeFour the Crown Showdown victories, this win gave Schuchart his sixth win of the season and 29th of his World of Outlaws career in a new Triple-X chassis, which he credits for their revitalized success.
“This win was a lot of fun,” said Schuchart. “Eldora is always in great shape and although my motor felt like it lost two cylinders, my team made it possible to overcome a rather difficult summer. We felt like at any moment we’d start clicking, and we really felt like Eldora owed us one after July. We left Kings Royal week bummed out with the results considering how good our cars were. I don’t think we were good in the Dash, but Ron, Ben, Jack & Bill made some awesome changes, and we have another victory here because of this.”
The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series remains in the state of Pennsylvania next week as the final Crown Jewel of the season takes place. Stay tuned to RacingJunk.com for the latest news from the dirt.
