Stateline Speedway was built in 1956 and in 1961 Eriez Speedway was also built and it was those tracks where Schnars became known as "The King" of stock car racing. Schnars recorded 136 Late Model Feature wins during a career that spanned from 1956-1977.
To give one an idea of how dominant Schnars was, consider this: when Bobby Schnars was inducted, only Dick Barton and Skip Furlow had won half the number of Late Model Feature races as Schnars, who had been retired for nearly 25 years.
