Lasoski Romps At Volusia

Barberville, FL ? Danny Lasoski bolted from the pole and led all 30 laps of the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series race Sunday night at the Volusia Speedway Park. The event closed out six nights of sprint-car action during the 37th Annual Alltel DIRTcar Nationals.

For the Missouri driver, he won for the 17th time at Volusia but it was his first WOO victory.

?I had a good car,? Lasoski said. ?I was working the bottom the first few laps and was going good but then when came upon lapped cars, I moved to the top to see what I could do. I am really proud of this team, as it is our own car and our own money that is in it.?

He drove the American Compressed Steel JEI entry.

Minnesota?s Craig Dollansky finished a strong second in the Auto Value Parts Stores Maxim. He was crowned champion of the week?s races. ?It is great to win the championship,? he said. ?It is a team effort and my guys have worked their butts off. I thought I had a shot at Danny on one of the restarts but when he moved to the top, I couldn?t catch him.?

Jason Meyers came from seventh to third at the end. ?I had a good car but it was difficult to pass,? the Californian said. ?Another good run and another top three finish, which is good start to our season.?

Terry McCarl ran third much of the race but ended up fourth when Meyers passed him with five to go.

WOO champion Steve Kinser came from 18th to fifth place at the finish.

Sixth through tenth were Kerry Madsen, Jason Sides, Donny Schatz, Joey Saldana and Lucas Wolfe.

Heat races went to Sides, Madsen, Greg Hodnett and McCarl. B and C mains went to Lasoski and Natalie Sather.

Shane Stewart topped all qualifiers with a 13.528 second lap.

Track dust ? NASCAR luminaries were aplenty. Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne watched their cars compete. Owner Ray Evernham raced a modified as did Kenny Wallace and Kenny Schrader. Richard Childress was on hand to watch his grandsons, Austin and Ty Dillon, race their modifieds.
