Logan Schuchart scored his second win of the season on Saturday, October 15 in dominating fashion at Port Royal Speedway. Schuchart started second and took the lead on the third lap from Lucas Wolfe. Schuchart would pace the remainder of the 30-lapper, taking the checkered flag over 4-seconds ahead of the next closest competitor, Greg Hodnett. Schatz crossed the line third, with Wolfe fourth and Lance Dewease fifth.

Schatz extended his lead in the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series point standings as he closes in on his eighth championship. The battle for the second spot continues to rage on, as Daryn Pittman holds a seven point lead over Gravel. Sweet is fourth in points, seven markers behind Gravel and 14 out of second.
