Mark Burch Motorsports Earns Runner Up at Knoxville Raceway

6/25/2013

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (June 25, 2013) - A return to Knoxville Raceway on Saturday yielded another podium for Mark Burch Motorsports and driver Danny Lasoski.

Lasoski led the first 21 laps of the 25-lap midseason championship night feature before traffic allowed Mark Dobmeier to capitalize. The duo then put on a masterful performance in the closing laps with Dobmeier edging Lasoski by two car lengths.

"It was really frustrating," Lasoski said. "Mark Burch gave me a great car that could go anywhere. Anybody could have driven that car with ease."

After starting on the pole, Lasoski built a sizeable lead before a handful of cautions slowed the pace. However, each restart he powered away from the other cars until traffic bit him in the end. A lapped car disrupted his rhythm entering turn one on Lap 22, which allowed Dobmeier to close the gap.

The duo raced nose to tail down the backstretch before Dobmeier executed a slide job in turns three and four to take the lead.

"You can't blame traffic for not winning," he said. "They are out there trying to race, too. It's the leader's job to get by them."

Lasoski stayed within striking distance and dove to the bottom groove in turn one on the final lap - a move that was blocked by Dobmeier. Lasoski slid up the track, but closed to the bumper of Dobmeier entering turn three. However, both drivers went to the cushion and Dobmeier held on to the win by a couple of car lengths.

"He did exactly what he should have done as the leader," Lasoski said. "That's what any driver in that situation, including myself, would have done."

Lasoski opened the night by qualifying ninth quickest and he maneuvered from fourth to second in his heat race. He earned the pole of the main event when the inversion was the No. 8.
