The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will visit Wilmot Raceway in Wisconsin again in 2020 on Saturday, July 11 for the running of the Badger 40. The event will mark the series eighth visit to the fairground’s oval in Southeast Wisconsin.

Donny Schatz, the 10-time World of Outlaws champion scored his first win at Wilmot this past season. The North Dakota native started on the pole and paced all 40 circuits to pick up the victory over David Gravel and Brad Sweet.

The World of Outlaws  raced for the first time at Wilmot Raceway in 2006, with Mark Dobmeier, who was filling in for Brooke Tatnell, earning his first-career series win in one of the most thrilling events in series history.  Pittman would make up for that near-miss when the series returned to Wilmot in 2008, picking up the win.

Sweet claimed his first World of Outlaws championship this past season and the second overall for Kasey Kahne Racing. The California native won a series-best 16 races en route to the title, which he claimed by a mere four point over Schatz, who won 11 times in 2019. David Gravel, who reached victory lane on 10 occasions this past season was third in points. Daryn Pittman, who won four races was fourth in the standings, with Logan Schuchart, who won a career-high eight times, rounding out the top-five.

Carson Macedo, who claimed the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year Award was sixth in points, on the strength of four wins. Ian Madsen, who scored two wins, was seventh in the standings, with Sheldon Haudenschild, who won twice, in eighth. Shane Stewart, who picked up one win in 2019 was ninth in the final points tally, with Brent Marks, who scored the biggest win of his career in the Williams Grove National Open, rounding out the top-10. Veteran drivers Kraig Kinser, Jacob Allen and Jason Sides all were on the road as well in 2019.
