KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Aug. 29, 2016) – Big Game Motorsports driver Danny Lasoski capped the 2016 season at Knoxville Raceway on the right foot last Saturday.
The Muddy sponsored team had already wrapped up a second straight track championship prior to the season finale, which was a National Sprint League event.
“We want to win every race no matter what the circumstances are,” Lasoski said. “There’s no better way to end the season at Knoxville than by winning.”
Lasoski did just that with a strong performance at the half-mile oval, where he kicked off the action by setting quick time during qualifying. He then advanced from sixth to third place in a heat race to make the feature inversion, which lined him up on the inside of the second row for the 25-lap feature.
Lasoski maneuvered into the runner-up position a few laps into the race before he used a slide job in turns three and four to take the lead on Lap 14.
“We have been better the last month and a half than we’ve been all summer,” he said. “These cars have been so temperamental in dirty air. We’ve got better and better and it’s showing.”
Lasoski maintained the top spot for the remainder of the feature despite a late-race caution to record his 111th career victory on the night he was presented his 11th track title.
“The more seasoned we get the harder we work to stay in shape and keep up with the younger guys,” he said. “The team Tod (Quiring) assembled is second to none. I’m the most proud of the team work. They keep working and keep working. Sometimes you have to pinch yourself. I was elated when I won my first one. A kid from Missouri with a population of 109 going to the mecca of racing and wins. Now we’re still competing and winning. That definitely puts the icing on the cake for the Knoxville season.”
The win also boosted Lasoski’s lead in the National Sprint League championship standings to 128 points entering the AGCO Jackson Nationals this Saturday and Sunday at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., where the winner will earn $25,000.
