Dan Kaszubinski Teams Up With Fratto Motorsports for Empire Super Sprint Title Assault in 2006.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- On of the biggest names in the world of the Empire Super Sprints (ESS) is making a little change for the 2006 racing season which will be brought to you by nativepoker.com. Syracuse, N.Y.'s Dan Kaszubinski will drive for Carmen Fratto and Fratto Motorsports as a teammate to Nick Fratto, the 2003 ESS rookie of the year, hoping for his first ever title with the 360 organization.

Since his start with ESS a decade ago, Kaszubinski has wheeled sprint car equipment owned by himself and his family. While never really high funded, success has followed the exciting driver amassing 28 career feature wins along the way which ties him for fifth on the all-time win list. Joining forces with the Fratto family will give him added equipment that he has been lacking the previous years.

"I just have to thank Carmen, Nick, everyone with the Fratto team. They saved my butt last year by giving me a car to end the season with. I was done plain and simple, I bent up my two cars and nothing left, but the Fratto's just told me to use their car and run it hard." said Kaszubinski "I was going to cut back some next year to get some home projects done but with this coming along I'm exciting to be back for a full season with ESS. They way we all got along at the end of last year, I think this season is going to be fun and maybe, just maybe we can get Lance."

Three Maxims and power supplied by Jimmy D's Speed and Machine will be in the stable. The truck will be provided by Kaszubinski while the Fratto's will bring in the trailer. The cars will be housed with Kaszubinski as he and crew chief Todd Weigand will oversee the equipment during the week.

"I'm looking forward to 2006 as well. Actually I can't wait for the winter to end so we car go racing." noted Nick, the 16 year old driver from Geneva, N.Y. "With Dan and Todd working on the cars it will help my father a bunch and allow me to get a job as well to help out. Also, everyone knows that Dan can really drive these sprinters so I hope I can learn some of his traits."

Sponsorship will be from Geneva Curbing and Concrete, JDS Dirt and Ohsweken Speedway. Product sponsors are being gathered to help stock back up parts. The cars will be painted red and fans can get the first look at the team in March as they will be making an appearance at the annual Car Quest Motorsports Expo in Syracuse.

Lance Yonge is coming off back to back ESS titles. Dan Kaszubinski has been his main rival not only in points but feature wins. With the help from Fratto Motorsports, the Syracuse star is putting on the boxing gloves and getting ready for a good ole' 12 round championship fight.

Along with ESS stars such as Jeff VanDusen, second in points for 2005, Jeff Cook, Alain Bergeron and many others, the 2006 nativepoker.com tour will continue with the tradition of excitement guaranteed!.
