Donny Schatz Crash Video

Donny Schatz's fiery rollover at Silver Dollar Speedway


This Donny Schatz Crash Video was recorded at the 53rd annual Gold Cup Race of Champions at Silver Dollar Speedway on Thursday, September 7, 2006.

Schatz was on the final lap of the fourth heat race when he ran over the edge of backstretch and made contact with the concrete wall. As you can clearly see, the impact from the tail tank crashing into the wall set the fuel cell ablaze forcing Schatz to make a quick exit.

The video shows other drivers coming to Schatz's aid, those drivers were Brent Kaeding, Brooke Tatnell, Paul McMahan and Randy Hannagan, and thanks to them he avoided more serious injuries. Schatz only received minor burns in the incident, and after being checked out at the local hospital returned to the track.
