ARCHERFIELD, Australia – Donny Schatz sped to another sprint car victory at Australia’s Archerfield Speedway on Tuesday.

The victory, his second in three starts in Australia thus far, came over fellow American Logan Schuchart.

“It was a good night,” said Schatz, who beat Schuchart by more than eight seconds at the checkered flag. “We got ourselves qualified well, tried to stay out of trouble in those heat races and took our opportunity in the dash to try a little something.

“Lannie (Nichols), Jason Sides, these guys did a great job making adjustments all night long and got me a race car that was capable of winning the feature.”

Mitchell Gee finished third, followed by Peter Lack and Allan Woods.

The finish:

Donny Schatz, Logan Schuchart, Mitchel Gee, Peter Lack, Allan Woods, Darren Jensen, Luke Oldfield, Mark Pholi, Kevin Titman, Ben Hilder, David Whell, Brent Kratzmann, Ryan McNamara, Andrew Corbet, Andrew Scheuerle, Anthony Lambert, Dan Murray, Brett Minett, Brock Dean.
