Donny Schatz managed to hold off a Brian Brown early in the race, then fended off charges from Sheldon Haudenschild and Brad Sweet late to capture his fourth win in five nights at Volusia Speedway Park. Schatz, who has won just about everything to win in Sprint Car racing, captured his first ever DIRTcar Nationals Big Gator Championship. All photos by Jamie Brabson.
