– KNOXVILLE, Iowa (April 18, 2016) – Big Game Motorsports pilot Danny Lasoski continued to add to his legacy at Knoxville Raceway last Saturday when he claimed his track-record seventh Opening Day victory.
The win was the first of the season for the Muddy sponsored team, which is aiming to back up last season’s track championship at the half-mile oval.
“If we win races the points will be there,” Lasoski said. “A win puts a little extra boost in the step of our guys, who have worked so hard. Guy (Forbrook) and I know how hard this sport is. When you have bad nights you can’t dwell on them and you can rest on your laurels after good nights.”
Lasoski was one of the final cars to qualify during last Saturday’s season opener at Knoxville Raceway, where he timed in third quickest.
“Going out almost last in qualifying I thought we put a lap together that was the best we had,” he said. “We didn’t have a very good car in the heat race, but Guy did a great job adjusting for the A Main.”
Lasoski rallied from sixth to fourth place in the heat race to lock into the feature inversion, which lined him up on the outside of the second row for the 20-lap main event.
“I immediately got to second,” he said. “(Bryan Clauson) was putting a good pace out front. At Knoxville you can’t wear your tires too early. We had a restart and I got under him and set sail.”
Lasoski, who advanced into second place on the opening lap, took the lead on Lap 5 and pulled away for his 107th career 410ci triumph at the track.
“I’m lucky and thankful we won our first race of the year,” he said. “Guy and the crew worked their tails off so it’s nice to be rewarded for that.”
The Muddy backed team will return to action this Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.
