Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (July 11, 2016) – Big Game Motorsports and Danny Lasoski captured their fifth victory of the season last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.
“The Knoxville Nationals is first and foremost on our list,” Lasoski said. “Every week is a practice. We’re not where we need to be, but we’re way closer than we’ve been in the last month.”
Lasoski opened the night by setting quick time during qualifying. The Muddy sponsored team then advanced from sixth to third place in a heat race and started the main event on the inside of the second row.
Lasoski moved into the runner-up position on the opening lap and he chased down Davey Heskin for the top spot a few laps later.
“We were setting a good pace,” Lasoski said. “With five laps to go something hit our nose wing. I couldn’t even run half throttle. The front wing laid down and had the right front up in the air. It was like a bulldozer with a blade in the air.”
Lasoski held on for his 110th career trip to Victory Lane at the track. It also boosted his lead in the championship standings to 362 points.
That capped a weekend that began on Friday at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., with the National Sprint League and World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.
“With the World of Outlaws format you have to qualify well and we just didn’t get it done,” he said. “I thought we made a way better lap than that. It just didn’t prove it when the stopwatch stopped.”
Lasoski went out late to qualify and ended with the 17th quickest qualifying run. He picked up a spot in the heat race to finish fourth before ending 14th in the main event.
“We were marred in the back and stayed there,” he said. “It was one of those nights you’d just soon forget.”
Lasoski will pilot his own sprint car this weekend during the 33rd annual Kings Royal Thursday through Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, with the World of Outlaws while Guy Forbrook and the crew work on building new cars.
The Muddy team will return to action July 22 at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., and July 23 at Knoxville Raceway.
