Shark Racing Team Scores First World of Outlaws Win of 2023

ROSSBURG, OHIO – Logan Schuchart loves racing at historic Eldora Speedway in western Ohio and Friday night he was the class of the field in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series #LetsRaceTwo opener. Schuchart led 29 of the 30 laps behind the wheel of the Drydene/DuraMAX C&D Rigging Federated Auto Parts Shark Racing No. 1s to score his first WoO triumph of 2023 and 36th of his career. 

“I love racing at Eldora,” said Schuchart. “My guys Brendon Collum and Lonnie Judy worked hard this week putting a new car together and it was a rocket. We were fast from when we unloaded and just kept getting better. This team is here to win races and we’re making big gains on it. This place is going to have some pretty big races in July and we want to be right there battling for wins. Racing with the World of Outlaws prepares you for those big shows. Every night, every spot is so tough. Cherish the win and move to the next race, because it’s going to take everything going right to get that one.”

Schuchart was fast out of the box earning his second fast qualifier of the year before winning the third heat. He finished third in the Toyota Dash to start the 30-lap main on the inside of row two. He wasted no time taking the lead on the opening lap. The Hanover, PA native set a torrid pace and maneuvered traffic to perfection during the main event. Late in the race, Rico Abreu slid Schuchart to lead lap 29, but Schuchart made a turn one pass to retake the lead and drove away to score his fourth win at Tony Stewart’s half-mile dirt oval. 

“Really happy to get everyone that helps us a win,” continued Schuchart. “Obviously, that first one always seems to be the hardest. We couldn’t do this without great partners like Drydene, DuraMax, C&D Rigging, Federated Auto Parts, Shiloh Paving & Excavating and Williams Grading. They all love this sport and have been right there with us. We’re going to do everything we can to keep getting them in victory lane.” 

On Saturday, Schuchart was extremely fast as he qualified second in the field of 41 cars, won the third heat race to earn a spot in the Toyota Dash. After finishing eighth in the six-lap dash, he lined up for the feature outside of row four. The feature didn’t go as planned with Schuchart unknowingly running over debris in the early laps causing his right rear tire to explode seven laps into the race. The explosion sent Schuchart into the turnout wall. Despite a heroic effort to get repairs made, Schuchart wasn’t able to return to action and was credited with a 24th place finish. 

After 17 of 81 scheduled races, Schuchart ranks fourth in the World of Outlaws championship standings. He turns his focus to his hometown track, Lincoln Speedway, for Wednesday night’s WoO Gettysburg Clash. A pair of races at historic Williams Grove Speedway Friday and Saturday concludes the Outlaws second of four visits to the Keystone state in 2023. 


YORK, PA – Shiloh Paving & Excavating Inc., a York, PA based company offering commercial, industrial, and residential services, joins the list of partners for Logan Schuchart and his Shark Racing No. 1s during the 2023 World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint season. 

“We are excited to align with Logan and the Shark Racing team this season,” said Wally Reed, Director of Business Development. “At Shiloh Paving, we pride ourselves on delivering prompt and professional services to all our clients and since the majority of our business comes from word of mouth, the quality of our work and reputation speaks for itself. Logan has Central PA roots and has become one of the best drivers in all of motorsports. The Shark Racing team continues to do great things and we are thrilled to be part of their journey towards success in 2023.”

At each of the 2023 WoO races at Williams Grove Speedway, Lincoln Speedway and BAPS Motor Speedway, Shiloh Paving & Excavating Inc. branding will be on the Shark Racing No. 1s and provide additional support in the grandstands with customers and employees rooting on the 30-year-old Hanover native. 

“We are a family team and central PA is my home,” said Schuchart. “We have so many great fans around home and to be able to partner with a company like Shiloh Paving & Excavating is really cool for us. We know Sprint car fans really support companies that support Sprint car drivers and teams. It’s a great opportunity and we’re going to do all we can to give them something to cheer for all season long.”

Shiloh Paving & Excavating Inc. follows the mission statement of “Whatever it Takes”… “We do “Whatever it Takes” through our team approach to provide excellent service and an outstanding customer experience.”  

Shark Racing shares that philosophy as evidenced by the growth from a Hall of Famer Bobby Allen’s dream 10 years ago taking two kids out on the road to battle the business drivers and teams in “The Greatest Show on Dirt” to today having two drivers competing for wins regularly with the Outlaws. 

Schuchart has 35 career WoO wins and is coming off a season with five WoO victories and two more wins at Knoxville Raceway. He’s finished as high as second (2020) in the WoO championship standings and is looking to be competitive with the very best in more than 80 races this year.  

He started the WoO season with finishes of fifth and third during the Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park near Daytona Beach, Florida on February 9 and 10. He’ll resume the Outlaws schedule chasing a Gator trophy in the finale of the DIRTcar Nationals on Sunday, March 5 before kicking off two complete shows that begins the Outlaws six-race Low-E Reflective Insulation Spring Showdown at Volusia. The six-race challenge includes four nights of action in Pennsylvania (March 10-11 at Port Royal Speedway and March 17 at Williams Grove and March 18 at Lincoln Speedway).

World of Outlaws Star Scores Three Top-Fives 

Consistency was a stated goal for World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series driver Logan Schuchart entering the 2023 campaign. The driver of the Drydene/DuraMax backed Shark Racing 1s kicked off the 2023 racing season at the 52nd Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida with four nights of action this past week. The Hanover, PA native earned finishes of second, ninth, fifth and third before Saturday’s finale was postponed because of rain to March 5. 

“We wanted to get out of the box with some good runs and be consistent every night,” said Schuchart. “We are down here chasing trophies. We didn’t get one yet, but we’re competing for them. The guys did a great job getting us ready to come down here.  They also did a good job working together each night at the races too. We had to battle the weather a little bit, but hats off to track guys for giving us a good surface to race on. All of us are excited to get back down here in March get back on the track. We have another good opportunity and will keep digging.”

The week of action was filled with several highlights for Schuchart including: storming from fourth to first during the opening lap of Tuesday’s All-Star Circuit of Champions main event, winning Outlaw heat races Thursday, Friday and Saturday and earning top qualifying honors on Friday night.

Schuchart ranks second in the DIRTcar Nationals “Big Gator” Championship, trailing David Gravel by 12 markers with only the finale remaining to determine the winner. Schuchart won the “Big Gator” in 2021. 


HANOVER, PA (Sept. 5, 2022) – One month ago World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series star Logan Schuchart entered the biggest event of the Sprint Car Racing season, the 61st NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa with a purpose. His goal was to join his legendary grandfather Bobby Allen as a Knoxville Nationals champion and during this journey he was raising awareness for military members through a donation push for Roots for Boots, the grassroots non-profit whose mission is to meet the current needs and challenges of our veterans, active duty and military families. 

Schuchart concluded a tremendous week of action in Iowa with two wins and a charge from 17th to third in the Knoxville Nationals finale and also served his country by helping those that have and continue to serve. Shark Racing Apparel committed to donating a percentage of each “Logan Schuchart 2022 Nationals” design items sold during the month of August to Roots for Boots.  The result was win-win as more than $600 was raised for the local organization. 

“We are all really excited about how this all worked out,” said Schuchart. “It was great to honor my dad, Craig Schuchart, a marine and all the military. My mom (Dana Allen) helped all of this come together and the shirts were a big hit. We take a lot of pride in being patriotic and being able to give to those that served is really something special.”

Schuchart spends his life on the road racing all across the United States. He’s racing on the west coast to start September before concluding the month racing at home in Pennsylvania. The 29-year-old Hanover native is chasing victories to close out his 10th season with the World of Outlaws and is encouraging fans out there to do what they can do to help the Roots for Boots organization. 

Logan and his father Craig Schuchart.

“We are fortunate to be able to race all across the country and do what we do for a living,” said Schuchart. “The military protects us all and provides us the freedom we all love. Special thanks to Christy Lucas and the Roots for Boots organization for partnering with us in this campaign.”

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (Aug. 9, 2022) – World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series star Logan Schuchart will be doing more than just chasing one of the biggest trophies in all of motorsports this week at the 61st NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa. The Hanover, PA native will help military members through a donation push for Roots for Boots, the grassroots non-profit whose Mission is to meet the current needs and challenges of our veterans, active duty and military families. 


Each year during the Nationals several teams will debut new car designs with the event providing the sport its biggest stage. Instead of debuting a new car this year, Schuchart will debut a new custom suit built by K1 Racegear. The all-white with red and blue accented suit, gloves and custom-painted helmet honor America and the 29-year-old is looking to pay tribute to all current and former U.S. soldiers, including his father, Marine Craig Schuchart.

“I’m so proud to be an American and we are blessed to have the men and women of our military protect us every day,” said Schuchart. “I get to live my dream and race sprint cars thanks to the great people that surround me. My grandfather built a race team for me. We’ve been able to work with great partners like Drydene, DuraMAX, C&D Rigging, NGK, Williams Grading and L&M Tire and Wheel this year. Without all of them this wouldn’t be possible… exactly like without all the men and women that have served this country, we all couldn’t be living the lives we are. My dad instilled in me many traits he learned while serving our country and this week I have an opportunity to help serve my country without serving and that means a lot.”

Shark Racing Apparel will sell Logan Schuchart t-shirts named “Nationals” this week at the event and a percentage of these shirts sold will be going to Roots for Boots. The shirt includes his No. 1s racecar and an image of his new helmet, which honors a special marine.

“It’s a privledge to help those that have and still are protecting our freedom,” continued Schuchart, who won Sunday’s Captani Classic at Knoxville Raceway. “I have a great opportunity to reach fans and people out there that want to help this cause because of the popularity of our sport. Racing fans are the best and really support programs like this. I’m excited to have the chance to get involved.”

Along with several public appearances in Knoxville this week, Schuchart will meet with the special soldier he’s honoring on his helmet Thursday, Aug. 11. Be sure to follow Logan on his social media outlets (FB: LoganSchuchart1s, Twitter @LSchuchart1s & Instagram: @loganschuchart to see the helmet and moments from the reveal.

PAIGE, TEXAS (March 6) – Logan Schuchart returned to World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series action this past weekend and scored a pair of fourth-place finishes behind the wheel of the DuraMAX / Drydene / C&D Rigging / NGK / Williams Grading / L&M Tire and Wheel Shark Racing No. 1s. 


Schuchart was one of four Outlaw regulars that entered the weekend with four top-10 runs at the 3/8-mile dirt oval. He qualified seventh and started the opening heat race third. A great start put him into second where he followed his Shark Racing teammate and fast qualifier Jacob Allen to the finish line and into the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash.

He finished fourth in the six-lap dash and started the 30-lap A-Feature outside of row two. The Hanover, PA driver was in contention for most of the race advancing up to second during a lap eight restart. He followed Sheldon Haudenschild, Cory Eliason and Brad Sweet to the finish line. It was his first top-five and best career finish at the track. 


He qualified 12th out of 29 cars Saturday and finished fourth in the third heat race. In the 30-lap A-Feature, he lined up outside row six. He methodically worked his way forward and on lap 19, he passed Brad Sweet for fifth and on lap 25, he drove around David Gravel for fourth. During the final five laps he closed on James McFadden for third, but couldn’t grab the final spot on the podium. Carson Macedo won over Sam Hafertepe, Jr. and McFadden. 


The Outlaws trek west for their first of two California tours in 2022. First up is a doubleheader at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare. Schchuart will be making his 10th appearance at the high-banked 1/3-mile dirt oval in central California. His most memorable weekend at the track came during his rookie season when he led the first 22 laps of the 35-lap opening night feature. He finished 8th that night and followed it up with a run from sixth to second the following night. Catch all the action on DIRTVision Friday and Saturday night.

From Design to Rollout: Building Logan’s 2022 Brand

Barberville, FL – Feb. 8, 2022 – There are a lot of details that must come together for a project like Logan’s 2022 Shark Racing scheme and just importantly a lot of people that help make it happen.  When the Shark Racing 1s rolled out of the trailer at Volusia Speedway Park for the 51st annual DIRTcar Nationals yesterday, it marked the completion of the 2022 1s brand build for the World of Outlaws season. 


When checkered flag fell in Charlotte on the 2021 season and the work to build the 2022 program was in full speed. Shark Racing worked with all of their partners from 2021 to continue their partnerships for the 2022 season. We are pleased to have all of them back involved with Logan’s team and we worked hard to provide them great spaces on the racecar, drivers suit/crew uniforms and transporter. 

With Drydene’s new ownership, RelaDyne, also promoting the DuraMAX brand, the Lakeside Apparel & Graphics design team of Zack Barber and Aaron Ott where able to add some blue into the already red, white and black color pallet. We asked for five different schemes and they provided us some great options, but one design jumped out at us. It was ultimately tweaked slightly and became what you will see hit the track this week for the first time. 

It was a very involved process and the Lakeside team delivered in a very tight time frame. They were able to get us a completely wrapped car ready in less than a day so that Logan’s car could be displayed in Bridgeport’s Speedway booth at the Motorsports Show near Philly. 


Once all the decal’s were applied it was time for Nate Berwager and his group at RA Smith and Sons to put the final touches on it. A clear coating of all the body panels gives it an incredible shine and provides an added layer of protection. 

One the biggest branding tools a World of Outlaws team has is its 53’ foot traveling billboard. RelaDyne’s Dan Oehler and Al Johnson really liked the idea of utilizing a fresh wrap on Logan’s hauler. Lakeside designed a scheme that gives both Drydene and DuraMAX great exposure, but also includes the stars and stripes that are also part of Logan’s car design. 

Before the trailer could go to Brandon Rahmer of Chop Designs for the install, four layers of old vinyl had to be stripped off. Shane Eisenhart of Iron Stag Crane Services opened his shop up on a weekend and a great group of guys spent the day getting the trailer back to it’s original skin. You could even see the Mopar imprints from it’s first few seasons on the road with Mark Kinser. Eddie Foit also help with the final details on the following Sunday. 

Our crewman Ben Witman delivered the trailer to Reading on a Thursday night and Rahmer worked for three days and did an outstanding job. We are extremely excited to see the rig travel the country providing Drydene, DuraMAX and C&D Rigging great exposure pulling into dirt tracks from coast to coast. 


In their 2022 concept package, Lakeside provided some sample uniforms that were passed along to Jacob Brown and the team members at K1 RaceGear. K1 also took advantage of the added colors from the DuraMAX brand and built Logan four awesome suits and the crew new jerseys to wear too. 

Mark Clemmons, of Clems Designs, has been painting Logan’s helmets the past two years and designed a helmet that of course includes the shark teeth painted by Logan’s grandfather Gene Schuchart and follows the WW2 fighter pilot theme. A bomber girl is also part of the design. Clem does terrific work and we’re excited to see his next creation for Logan. 

A big thank you to all of our crew members – Ron Helmick, Ben Witman, Jack Eckard and Tyler Garber for working hard to get everything built and to Florida safely. 

It’s been an incredible experience working with all of these great people. It takes being surrounded by great people to pull off something special. Everyone at Shark Racing is excited about the 2022 season we’re excited that we can bring Lakeside, K1, Chop Designs, Clem Designs and RA Smith & Sons along for the ride with us. 


February 1, 2022, Cincinnati, Ohio – RelaDyne, one of the nation’s leading providers of lubricants, fuel, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), and industrial reliability services, announced today a marketing partnership with World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series (WoO) star Logan Schuchart and his Shark Racing team for the 2022 season. The season begins in early February with the 51st annual DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.

The No. 1s machine of Schuchart will carry RelaDyne brands of DuraMAX and Drydene in the 90-plus race schedule that includes events at 45 tracks in 24 states, concluding in November with the annual World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Schuchart will embark on his 9th season of competing with “The Greatest Show on Dirt” and is looking to contend for his first WoO title.

“RelaDyne is excited to continue its support of Shark Racing, Logan and the 1S team for 2022,” stated Dan Oehler, EVP of Marketing and Ecommerce for RelaDyne. “Logan already has a strong history with Drydene, and we look forward to him also representing our DuraMAX brand this year.  The entire Shark Racing team exemplifies what RelaDyne, DuraMAX and our Drydene brand stand for – hard work, reliability, performance, and a competitive spirit second to none.”   

The 29-year-old Hanover, PA driver finished fifth last season after tallying seven WoO A-Main triumphs including his second consecutive Jackson (MN) Nationals’ crown and third straight Texas Outlaw Nationals triumph at Devil’s Bowl Speedway. He entered last season with a load of confidence following a 2020 WoO campaign that saw him battle Brad Sweet for the WoO championship until the final night of the season. Schuchart started strong earning his first “Big Gator” by winning twice and finishing second twice in the four DIRTcar Nationals feature events.

“We are excited to continue our journey chasing a World of Outlaws championship with Drydene and also adding the DuraMAX brand – both powered by RelaDyne,” said Schuchart. “It’s been a tremendous partnership with Drydene over the last few years. They helped me and our team grow so much, and now with RelaDyne and DuraMAX our family just got bigger. We are really looking forward to making this relationship even stronger and continue to grow the brands, meet customers and be the best we have ever been. I feel like with the competition we have in the World of Outlaws if you want to win and be a champion, you must be surrounded by great people. And we are aiming for our best season ever and proud to be doing it with RelaDyne, Drydene and DuraMAX.”

Since day one Schuchart has been under the tutelage of his grandfather Bobby Allen, who is a member of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, and during his eight-year WoO career which started in 2014, he has climbed from rookie to championship contender. He currently ranks 20th all-time in WoO A-Main wins with 30 and is tied with Allen.

DuraMAX, RelaDyne’s automotive brand, continues to revolutionize the Automotive Aftermarket industry. Based on a survey conducted by NOLN, DuraMAX ranks as the best-selling oil brand by quick lube owners, a ranking it has held since 2018. DuraMAX has continued to maintain its status of the best-selling oil brand in the market, outperforming higher profile brands and ranked in the #1 position as the best-selling synthetic and synthetic blend, and tied for #1 in best-selling high mileage brand.

Drydene, a brand with a strong heavy duty and industrial products heritage dating back to the mid 1940’s, was relaunched by Drydene Performance Products in 2017. Drydene was acquired by RelaDyne in September 2021 and has grown to become a national player with distribution across the country through RelaDyne locations.  The brand offers a complete line of commercial and industrial lubricants, including engine oils, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), transmission fluids, grease, hydraulic and gear oils, and metalworking fluids. Drydene is well known as a supporter of dirt track racing across the country.

The 2021 World of Outlaws season has certainly been a roller coaster ride for Logan Schuchart. The driver of the Drydene Performance Products / C&D Rigging/ NGK Spark Plugs Shark Racing No. 1s has felt the highs and lows and those were both experinced during the 67th running of the Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California. 

After a tough break on the opening lap of Friday’s WoO 35-lap A-Main, Schuchart left know doubt Saturday putting on a dominant display and picking up his first Gold Cuptriumph and first career win at Silver Dollar. 

“It’s pretty awesome to win such a prestigious race like this in California,” Schuchart said to a nearly sold-out crowd. “Being a Pennsylvania boy growing up out there we’re not used to this kind of stuff, but it’s something I’ve grown accustomed to being on the road and all these different tracks. It’s awesome to get back up here in victory lane.”

Schuchart was poised to make a run forward Friday night. The Hanover, PA native was looking forward to returning to the famous quarter-mile bullring after charging from 12th to third in the 2019 Gold Cup. He qualified 7th, raced his way into the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and started the main inside of his Shark Racing and Drydene teammate Jacob Allen in row eight.  Contact on the opening lap resulted in a broke front axle and frustration for the driver of the 1s. 

He and his team came back Saturday focused on winning and that’s just what they did. He earned his seventh quicktime award to start the night and then finished second in the opening heat race. Schuchart started fourth and finished second in the dash to put the Drydene machine on the front row for the 40-lap A-Main.

Kasey Kahne paced the field from the pole and Schuchart was in chase. Tanner Carrick moved from third to first and held the top spot until lap 25 when he pulled in because of fuel cell problem. Schuchart was battling Brad Sweet for second and closing on Carrick before the caution on lap 25. Schuchart restarted the race with the lead and thwarted off several challenges from Sweet to score his fifth WoO A-Main triumph of the year and 28th of his career, just two shy of tying his grandfather and sprint car legend Bobby Allen on the Outlaws All-Time win list.

“I’m happy we got this win the right way, though,” said Schuchart. “Didn’t do anything dumb or put ourselves in a bad spot, we just raced hard the way it’s supposed to be. Winning is the best form of payback.”

The victory continues a terrific west coast run for Schuchart and his Shark Racing crew of Ron Helmick, Ben Witman, Jack Eckard. He led laps during the Sage Fruit Skagit Nationals finale before finishing third. The following night, he dominated the Labor Day stop at Grays Harbor Raceway claiming the victory after leading all 35 laps of the main event. 

Schuchart and Co. will look to put an exclamation point on the trip Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway, where there is a $21,000 first prize check on the line. Schuchart’s put on a show at Keller before racing from 19th to victory back in March of 2017.

JACKSON, Minn. (June 27, 2021) – Logan Schuchart let out his best Ric Flair impression in Victory Lane on Sunday at Jackson Motorplex, where he mastered the final three quarters of the 43rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals main event to earn the $50,000 top prize.

“Hell yeah, man,” he exclaimed. “$50,000. Woooooooo!”

Schuchart was just as entertaining in the arena as the ‘Nature Boy’ while putting it on his opponents, winning the highest-paying World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series feature so far this season by more than four seconds and lapping half of the field. The victory was his second straight at the crown jewel event and it made Schuchart one of five different winners during six nights of THE SHOWDOWN competition within the last eight days.

Schuchart took the lead on the start of the 35-lap race, but a caution on the opening lap set up a complete restart. David Gravel capitalized by darting from third into the lead after hitting the bottom in turns one and two and executing a slide job on Schuchart in turns three and four.

Gravel led the first seven laps before the second-and-final caution came out on Lap 8 when Donny Schatz, who was running fifth, stopped on the track. Gravel chose the inside lane for the double-file restart, but didn’t launch into the lead when the green flag was waved. Gravel and Schuchart stayed side by side throughout three quarters of the lap before Gravel slid across the track in turns three and four. Schuchart turned underneath the slide job and narrowly led the lap.

That was as close as anyone got to Schuchart during the remainder of the race as he pulled away in traffic.

“You never know how long you should push,” he said. “This is probably the best track we’ve had all week and it was during the day. The other night I started to be a little conservative to conserve tires and then Kerry (Madsen) blows right by me.”

The aggressive approach on Sunday worked as Gravel finished 4.454 seconds behind Schuchart.

“He was good in lapped traffic,” Gravel said. “I wish I had a better restart. It kind of stumbled and he got a run on me. He had the dominant car in traffic. I wish I had that chance to try to control the race in the lead.

“If we got to do it again we’d probably do a couple of things different. It’s a little disappointing, but nothing to hang our heads about. It’s definitely a positive day.”

World of Outlaws points leader Brad Sweet passed Kerry Madsen, who won both preliminary nights, on Lap 19 to round out the podium.
