I was in attendance Saturday for the big show and it was quite the race for Larson! Guy started mid pack or so and absolutely hauled his butt up to number 2 position! Just couldn't manage to get around Schatz.

I was also a little embarrassed to be a spectator- as anytime Donny Schatz was mentioned, they'd boo him! Really??? Am I missing something, or is this just a display of incredibly bad sportsmanship?

I'm not into racing. My take has always been that race fans seem to like some drivers and dislike others for reasons that usually don't
make any sense.

It's just like back in the day when everyone booed Sammy and Steve K. Donny is well on the way to being the best ever.

To win Knoxville 10 times is simply incredible.

I was out in Creston on business but did not have time to stay for the races.

I missed the race but was keeping tabs on Twitter while I was out. I don't get why people don't like Donny, I do and I am a huge fan of Larson so it was good with me.
