Inside Line Promotions – KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series annual trip to Lakeside Speedway presents a unique opportunity for Danny Lasoski.
Lasoski’s shop is only an hour drive from the fast track, which hosts the FVP Outlaws at Lakeside this Saturday.
“My family and friends go that we never get to race in front of,” he said. “The guys I went to high school with and the local sponsors who support us get to watch me race.”
While the close proximity is a huge bonus for Lasoski, who claimed the 2001 World of Outlaws championship, the history of Lakeside Speedway presents another unique storyline.
“It’s rich in sprint car history,” he said. “I went all the time with my uncle and my dad when I was a kid.”
Although Lasoski hasn’t claimed an Outlaws win at Lakeside Speedway, he said the track will provide the opportunity to race to the front during this Saturday’s FVP Outlaws at Lakeside event.
“It usually has a top and a bottom groove,” he said. “It’s usually a good, wide race track that puts on a great show.”
