BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND (December 29) – After landing in Australia’s Gold Coast Thursday afternoon, World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series standout Logan Schuchart knew he was less than 48 hours away from getting back to work.

For the third consecutive year the native of Hanover, Pennsylvania has traveled Down Under to compete in Sprint car competition at Archerfield Speedway near Brisbane and Valvoline Raceway near Sydney.

His first piece of business after arriving was to head to the raceshop and check out his USA No. 1s Drydene XXX racer.

After finishing his fifth season of World of Outlaws competition with a pair of spectacular podium finishes in the World Finals, Schuchart has been itching to get back into competition and his wait is almost over. He’ll drive for John and Vicky Jane Weatherall again during this year’s seven-race summer tour. Schuchart will make his first of five appearances at Archerfield Speedway Saturday night in the East Coast Logistics Sprintcar Track Championship round seven event.

“I’m excited to get back on the track,” said Schuchart, the 2018 Ironman 55 winner. “With the way we finished up our season in Charlotte, I couldn’t wait to race again. I’m really happy to be here in Australia again. John and Vicky Jane are like family to me and I know Chris, Tyler and Teddy have everything ready to go. We’re excited to be bringing Drydene with us this year. We teamed up in May and they are committed to continuing to grow with us. Not only with Shark Racing and Jacob (Allen), but also in our venture over here in Australia. It’s a such a great partnership. It’s a priviledge to be representing them.”

Schuchart won two of his first three races at Archerfield during last year’s Summer Run Down Under after earning his first-ever Australian victory the previous season at Valvoline Raceway during the Scott Darley Memorial event. The goal over the next couple of weeks is not only chasing more wins, but also enjoying the experience.

“It’s a great challenge for me to come over here and race,” admitted the 26-year-old. “These guys race here every week and we drop in here in the middle of the summer and try to catch up. That’s where the World of Outlaws experience kicks in for us. We have do that a lot during our season. Archerfield is a short little bullring that reminds me of some of the west coast tracks we have back home. We’ve had some good runs there the last couple of years. This year we are hoping that continues, and we’re shooting to be in the hunt for the Australian Open.”

Scoring his first World Series Sprintcars triumph and adding an Australian Open victory are stated goals he’s hoping to accomplish before concluding his tour in near Sydney.

“Family is so important to all of us and to have the opportunity to be part of the final Scott Darley Memorial is an honor,” said Schuchart. “I know it takes a lot of work every year to put on events like this and is added stress for the family. We’d sure like to join an elite list of winners in the final event. Racing in Parramatta is a lot of fun too. It’s a great way to close our tour.”
