Donny Schatz keeps making history.

Only two other people have done what five-time champion Schatz did at 34 Raceway Friday night – become a 154-race winner in the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series.

In scoring his seventh win of the season, Schatz surpassed two-time champion Mark Kinser for third on the all-time wins list.

“It’s something you can’t really ever set your sights on – it’s something you just accomplish,” Schatz said. “I’m pretty lucky to be in this position and Mark Kinser is definitely a very good friend and a mentor to me. To be able to pass him on the list is something that means a lot.”

Only 20-time champion Steve Kinser and three-time champion Sammy Swindell have more wins than Schatz. Kinser has 577 wins while Swindell has 293.

“The two guys in front of me, I don’t know that I’m ever going to catch either one of them,” Schatz said. “But realistically I didn’t try to get to this point on the list. I’m just going out and having a good time and racing and enjoying myself. When you’re enjoying yourself, things just happen. We’re kind of over that milestone and now we can just enjoy the rest of it.”
