The ASA Late Model Series Announces the Return of Dan Lensing
Dan Lensing a 2004 ASA Late Model Series rookie driver will return to run a full schedule in 2005. Lefthander Chassis will once again sponsor Dan with the new team number of 18.
Dan started out the 2004 season eager to compete but with very little patience. It wasn't long before he worked it out and became a real contender for Champion and Rookie of the year. Dan closed out his rookie season with 3rd in points in a competition that saw over 80 drivers compete with the ASALMS in 2004.
Ron Varney the ASA Late Model Series President is glad to see the return of such a fine young man. "Watching him grow with the series has been amazing" states Varney
2005 will prove to be an exciting season for this young man with so much drive. It is really going to be a competitive season with almost 80 teams all ready registered. Dan is ready for the challenge and plans to compete with everything he has for the 2005 title.
Dan began his motorsports career at age 17, driving for legendary car owner Gordon Corning, who owned the cars of the late racing great Joe Shear. Dan competed at the quarter-mile of Columbus 151 Speedway in 2001, placing 12th in the final standings.
The following season, he raced regularly at Rockford Speedway in Illinois, finishing 10th in the final point standings and earning a pole position for the prestigious National Short Track Championships. During the course of the year, Dan bagged four top-five finishes and 11 top 10s.
Dan made 15 starts at Madison in the Limited Late Model division in 2003, recording one win and 13 top 10s. He placed fifth in the final point's rundown, even though he missed the last event of the season.
