KNOXVILLE, Iowa ‑- official track release — Studio 22 photo —
Danny Lasoski scored his fifth win and the 106th in his career at the Knoxville Raceway Saturday night during an evening that saw everything from some strange accidents to a power outage.
In the 360 class, Dusty Zomer backed up his 410 win a week ago here, with his fourth career victory in that class. Devin Kline dominated the competition in the 305 class to pick up career win No. 6.
Before a lap could be completed in the 410 feature, Davey Heskin spun, and so did Logan Forler, who was trying to avoid contact. On the restart, something seemed to break in Dakota Hendrickson’s mount and he shot sideways high into the turn one fence.
Justin Henderson led the 20-lapper once the green flag replaced the red, ahead of Lynton Jeffrey and Lasoski. On lap two, Terry McCarl took fourth from Brian Brown and reeled in the lead trio. Lasoski used his patented low groove to shoot under Jeffrey for second on lap six, before Heskin slowed after contact from another car.
Henderson led Lasoski, Jeffrey, McCarl and Dusty Zomer back to green flag racing in the last slowdown of the event. McCarl worked his way to the podium with a pass of Jeffrey in turn two on lap 12.
As the leaders entered lapped traffic, Lasoski began to reel in Henderson aboard the Big Game Motorsports No. 2. He made his winning move on the low side on lap sixteen. Lasoski’s win came ahead of Henderson, McCarl, Jeffrey and Zomer. Craig Dollansky, Brown, Bill Balog, Ian Madsen and Bryan Clauson rounded out the top 10.
Lasoski also registered quick time on the night, while Jeffrey, Josh Schneiderman and Tasker Phillips won heat races.
“When you have a car as mobile as we do, it really helps,” said Lasoski. “Again, thanks to Tod Quiring for putting this team together, with Guy Forbrook, Pete, Nate, Brady and Asa. I feel like I’m eighteen old again. The guys you race here on Saturday night are the guys you’re going to race with up front at the Nationals. That’s how good and high class the competition is here every week.”
