Donny Schatz is pushing 40. But he's not slowing down at all. Actually, he's getting faster and fast. And more dominant at River Cities Speedway, too. In dominating fashion, Schatz led from start to finish in winning Friday night's 40-lap World of Outlaws feature at The Bullring before a crowd of more than 5,000 fans. It was the fourth straight WoO win for Schatz at RCS. The Fargo driver also has won six of the past seven WoO features at RCS dating back to 2013.
Park River/Fordville-Lankin's Spencer Skavhaug caught a 40-yard pass from Jackson Hankey in the fourth quarter to lead the Aggies to a 24-18 road win over Grafton on Friday. Jordan Omlie scored twice for the Aggies. He caught a 49-yard pass from Hankey in the third quarter and scored on a 67-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. The Spoilers scored 12 points in the first quarter thanks to Hector Reyes' 12-yard touchdown catch from Dalton Albrecht and Gilberto Galvan's 83-yard fumble return for a score. Thompson 35, North Border 8
Last Saturday, Donny Schatz raced his late model at the Devils Lake Speedway, winning his heat and finishing seventh in the feature. The night before, Schatz—the country's best sprint car driver—raced his yellow late model at River Cities Speedway, where he dominated the 20-lap feature. On Sunday, Schatz flew to Sun Prairie, Wis., where he continued his dominating season on the World of Outlaws circuit. Schatz won that feature as well, increasing his commanding lead in the WoO season points race. He's well on pace for his eighth WoO season title.
The World of Outlaws were off Friday night. But Donny Schatz wasn't off. As usual, he was racing. And, as usual, he was on his game. Schatz stepped away from sprint cars and brought his late model to River Cities Speedway. And he dominated the 20-lap feature at The Bullring, leading from start to finishing in picking up the win. Schatz started on the front row and led every lap, winning by 2.760 seconds over Dustin Strand.
UND and North Dakota State have agreed to a four-year, home-and-home men's basketball series beginning this season. UND made the announcement Thursday. The first contest in the eight-game series will be held in Fargo on Dec. 7. The teams will meet again nine days later in Grand Forks.
UND has advanced to postseason play in four of the past five seasons. If the Fighting Hawks make it five of six, they'll have some work to do. UND released its 2016-17 women's basketball schedule on Tuesday, one that has the Hawks playing 10 of their 29 regular-season games against teams that were in postseason play last season. "This schedule showcases a lot of teams that our fans can recognize and have fun with; however, it's a serious challenge for the team," said UND coach Travis Brewster said.
If you're going to go on a hot streak at The Bullring, a good time to do so is late in the season. Austin Pierce won his second straight 25-lap sprint feature at River Cities Speedway on Friday night, making a late charge to the front in front of more than 2,000 wins. Pierce passed Wade Nygaard for the lead on Lap 23. Pierce edged Nygaard by 0.200 seconds at the flagstand, while Jade Hastings finished third, followed by Chris Ranten and Jordan Graham. For much of the race, it was a two-car shootout between Casey Mack and Nygaard.
