CONCORD, NC — official release — The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars swings through Minnesota and Iowa this week for races at Jackson (Minn.) Speedway and Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway.

Joey Saldana and Kerry Madsen won last weekend’s events at I-80 Speedway and Lakeside Speedway. Saldana who battled Paul McMahan and Donny Schatz to take the win at I-80 Speedway, notched his fourth win of the season. At Lakeside, it was Madsen, starting from the outside pole who battled pole-sitter Sammy Swindell for much of the night before holding off McMahan to take his third win of the season.

Going into Jackson and Knoxville there are just 50 points separating the top four drivers in the race for the championship. Current points leader Donny Schatz leads second place Daryn Pittman by 6 points.

In addition to leading the points, Schatz comes into Knoxville and Jackson as the immediate past winner of both tracks. Schatz went back-to-back at the tracks last June and scored a second win earlier last season at Knoxville on May 11, 2013 before winning his seventh Knoxville Nationals crown last August.
