SCHUCHART OPENS 2023 SEASON WITH FOUR TOP-10 FINISHES
SCHUCHART OPENS SPRINT CAR SEASON IN FLORIDA
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.
