Danny Lasoski Repeats at Knoxville!

Danny Lasoski Repeats at Knoxville!

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, June 2, 2012 – Danny Lasoski inched closer to the magical 100 mark with his 98th career win at the Knoxville Raceway Saturday night. The Dover, Missouri driver made it two wins in a row aboard the Creason Pipeline Services #33. Point leader, Clint Garner, won the 360 feature, while Mike Van Haaften also made it two wins in a row in the 305 class.

Josh Schneiderman took the early lead in the 20-lap 410 feature. A Dustin Selvage spin with two laps in the books, also claimed AJ Moeller who made contact with Don Droud Jr. Everyone restarted. Schneiderman led Mark Dobmeier, Rager Phillips, Justin Henderson and Brian Brown back to green flag racing.

Dobmeier used the opportunity to shoot by Schneiderman for the lead. Dobmeier pulled away from the field, and at the halfway point, led a four car battle for second that you could throw a blanket over. Schneiderman, Henderson, Brown and Lasoski all vied for the spot.

When a ninth running Rager Phillips had issues with two laps to go, things got interesting as the field was bunched behind Dobmeier. Lasoski was up to second, ahead of Brown, Davey Heskin and Henderson. Lasoski worked by Dobmeier on lap 18, before a caution for debris was called. The last restart saw Lasoski ahead of Dobmeier, Brown, Heskin and Schneiderman. Heskin was a rocket, grabbing second by the last lap behind Lasoski.

Brown was third, ahead of Dobmeier and Schneiderman. Henderson, Bronson Maeschen, Hard Charger Jason Johnson, Ian Madsen and Terry McCarl rounded out the top ten. Selvage registered quick time of the night, and Schneiderman, Lynton Jeffrey and AJ Moeller won the heats.

“I really didn’t know what to think,” Lasoski said of the restart that gave him the win. This car was handling all over the place. I knew the top was good, and I didn’t figure Dobmeier would leave it. We ran the top and the bottom. We really didn’t know which way to go!”

Carson McCarl shot out from the pole to lead early in the 18-lap 360 feature. The race was marred by everal cautions in the first six laps, including a nasty accident that saw JD Johnson get upside down hard and land on Lee Grosz. Both drivers were uninjured.

The final caution came when Clint Garner drove under Jamie Ball, and forced him into the fence in a battle for third. Ball sustained heavy damage and went pitside, while Garner too second on the restart and took the lead for good from McCarl to complete the ninth lap. It was his 13th career 360 win at Knoxville.

“Carson did a great job, and I really want to apologize to Jamie Ball,” said Garner in Victory Lane. “I didn’t want to crash him or distract him in any way. I just wanted to pass him. I’d like to thank Al Parker, Midwest Excavating and Super Shox. This car has some good shocks now. We’ve been working at them all year.”

McCarl would settle for second, ahead of Randy Martin, Jon Agan and Nate Van Haaften. Russ Hall, Matt Moro, Casey Friedrichsen, Joe Beaver and Ryan Roberts rounded out the top ten. Van Haaften registered quick time, while Tyler Groenendyk, Russ Hall and Lee Grosz won heat races.

The 305 feature was a race of attrition with just seven competitors taking the checkered flag. Matthew Stelzer led much of the way through a series of cautions. Finally, on the twelfth lap, he ran out of fuel, and Mike Van Haaften was there to take advantage. It was Van Haaften’s second win in a row and third in his career at Knoxville.

“Actually, about two or three laps in, I lost my brakes,” said Van Haaften. “I saw that the bottom was faster, at least for my car. I’m guessing (Stelzer) ran out of (fuel). We rolled the dice with what we were going to do with the main and it worked.”

Bob Hildreth was second, ahead of Dakota Hendrickson, Hard Charger, Ben Woods and Cody Ambers. Larry Ball Jr. registered quick time, and Stelzer and Matt Stephenson won the heats.

On Sunday, June 3, the 1st Annual Knoxville Shootout for Modifieds, Sport Mods, Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks will take to the Knoxville Raceway. For more information, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com or www.SprintCarHOF.com!
