During Last Call, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season finale, Team Drydene’s Sprint Car drivers closed out a 2020 season that was, as you may have heard, weirder than any of us could have predicted.

The Shark Racing duo of Logan Schuchart (1S) and Jacob Allen (1A) exceeded expectations all season long.

Here’s where Team Drydene and Shark Racing ended up during Last Call racing at The Dirt Track at Charlotte as well as at the end of the season.

Logan Schuchart wins Last Call finale

Sprint driver Logan Schuchart piloted his Shark Racing Drydene 1S to victory in the second night of racing at Last Call. His win mirrored how he started the season: Schuchart won the DIRTcar Nationals finale in February. He was dominant in the last race of the season, as he set quick time in his qualifying group, finished second in his heat race, finished second in the Fast Pass Dash, and won the feature.

The win was his seventh of the season and third win at The Dirt Track. The night before the win, Schuchart battled from a 16th starting position to a sixth-place finish to earn a KSE Hard Charger Award. That hard-charging performance was a hallmark of Schuchart’s 2020 season, as he consistently battled hard to gain spots.

Schuchart’s strong finishes at Last Call were also indicative of yet another strong season for the Team Drydene driver. Schuchart improved at many tracks throughout the 2020 season, and was incredibly consistent. To add to those seven wins, he had 35 top fives, 46 top tens, and he led 235 laps this season.

Throughout the year, he battled reigning WoO Series Champion Brad Sweet for the title. While Sweet retained his title, Schuchart finished a career-best second in points. Last year, he finished fifth in series points.

Jacob Allen has a breakout year

Schuchart’s teammate Jacob Allen finished 25th and 24th on the two nights of Last Call, but his finishes don’t tell the story of an outstanding breakout season. Allen finished 8th in points this season, which is his highest finish since joining the Outlaws.

But perhaps one of the biggest celebrations of this year came when Allen recorded his first Outlaws win in September during the Boot Hill Showdown opener at Dodge City Raceway Park. Throughout the season, Allen recorded numerous quick times, and recorded 19 top fives, 65 top tens, and led 78 laps. Allen’s improved performance also earned him the first annual Drydene Blood, Sweat, and Gears award.

Not only did Team Drydene’s Shark Racing duo put up outstanding numbers, they competed all season long with consistency and confidence. We can’t wait to see what 2021 brings for Team Drydene and Shark Racing, with an Outlaws schedule of over 90 races, it’s sure to be can’t-miss.

Stay tuned for our recap of the Team Drydene’s World of Outlaws Morton Builings Late Model Series season.
