Windom, MN — (November 19, 2014) — Big Game Motorsports is thrilled to announce that Danny Lasoski has been selected as the driver for the Big Game Treestands No. 2 sprint car.

Lasoski will team up with crew chief Guy Forbrook, along with crew members Pete Stephens and Tony Barkman, for approximately 60-to-70 races in 2015.

“I want to thank Tod Quiring and everyone at Big Game for giving me this opportunity,” Lasoski said. “I know that this team will have everything it needs to win races and championships. You can’t get any better than working with Guy.”

The Big Game Treestands team will kick off the year at the inaugural Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown, which will be held Jan. 2-3, Jan. 6 and Jan. 9-10 at Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz.

Lasoski will then compete with the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series in Florida and Las Vegas before returning to the Midwest, where the Big Game Treestands team will race weekly at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, and at all of the National Sprint League events.

“The National Sprint League is a great opportunity for drivers to make a lot of money,” Lasoski said. “I cut my teeth racing at a lot of the tracks on the schedule so I feel like we will be a contender from the first green flag. I think the points fund of $350,000 goes a long way toward helping sprint car racing in the Midwest.”

The other major focus for Lasoski will be claiming his fifth Knoxville Nationals title and his record 10th track championship at Knoxville Raceway, where Lasoski is the winningest driver in the storied history of the half-mile oval.

“Big Game Motorsports and I have a great partnership with Knoxville Raceway,” he said. “That is the premier track in the country and the more laps you can get around that place before the Knoxville Nationals gives you a better chance at winning the biggest race in sprint car racing.”

The Big Game Treestands team will also compete in select World of Outlaws events around the Midwest.
