STP® is the proud sponsor of 5-time champion driver Donny Schatz. With a go-getter attitude and taking challenges head on, Schatz has proven himself to be the driver to beat at every World of Outlaws event. Following each championship season, Schatz was named “Driver of the Year” by the National Sprint Car Poll.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Schatz is the third generation to be behind the wheel of the No. 15 sprint car. His love for speed and racing began in competitive go-kart racing, which led to Schatz having the chance to “hot-lap” a 360 sprint car. Schatz has been driving sprint cars ever since.
The climb to champion status is not an easy one, as Schatz has devoted the last 18 years to the track, proving that he deserves a spot on the podium. It takes countless hours running laps and working closely with his race team to perfect his craft and perform at his best for every race.
Schatz has received several recognitions for his unwavering performance on the track, specifically, being named a First team All-American by the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters association, five times.
