Donny Schatz and the No. 15 Armor All/ParkerStore/J&J team continued their May surge by charging from 23rd to finish fifth in Friday night's World of Outlaws event at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa.

Kraig Kinser and the No. 20 Bass Pro Shops/J.D. Byrider/Maxim scored their seventh top-10 finish of the season with a seventh place finish at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del.

Schatz continues to lead the WoO Sprint Series standings while Kinser climbed to the ninth position.

TSR's WoO Sprint Series teams will make their annual May appearance in Charlotte on Friday night at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. The event will air live on SPEED from 8 -- 11 p.m. ET.

Following Friday's race, they'll continue a busy Memorial Day weekend slate with races on Saturday at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Va., and at Canadaigua (N.Y.) Speedway on Monday.

POST-RACE QUOTES & NOTES:

Donny Schatz, driver of the No. 15 Armor All/Chevy/ParkerStore/J&J for TSR:

"The week was a little more difficult than we hoped, and the rain certainly didn't help. Our goal heading east was to continue the consistency we gained at Knoxville and Eldora. We struggled in the feature race at Delaware (International Speedway) and that carried over to Williams Grove (Speedway). By the feature at Williams Grove, I think we figured out our problem. It was a long haul from where we started.

"It's was a big accomplishment to be able to charge from the back and get another top-five with the track being as fast as it was. The Armor All guys (Rick Warner, Shane Bowers, Eric Prutzman) did a good job working throughout the night and getting the car fastest for the end.

"We've got a big week ahead of us, both on the track and off the track. We're excited about being able to work with our sponsors this week, and then have races in Charlotte and Virginia. Last time we were in Charlotte, we won the race and the championship, so we're looking forward to heading back down there."

Kraig Kinser, driver of the No. 20 Bass Pro Shops/Chevy/J.D. Byrider/Maxim for TSR:

"You never want to end a week on a down note, but we're trying to look forward to the week ahead. We made some progress to start the week at Delaware but just got ourselves in a bad spot at Williams Grove on Friday.

"The Bass Pro Shops car was really fast at Delaware. We qualified second and moved forward in both our heat race and the feature. A top-10 finish was something we felt good about starting the week with.

"Rain slowed us down in Pennsylvania, with one night of racing being washed out. We're at the point of the season where we want to be on the track as many times as possible. With the quality of cars at Williams Grove, you had to be in the top-16, and our lap wasn't the best in time trials. It was an uphill climb the rest of the way.

"I'm excited about this week. We get a fresh start and big race in Charlotte. We ran second to (TSR teammate) Donny (Schatz) down there last year and, hopefully, we can be first and he can be second this time."
