Roth Motorsports Brings Danny Lasoski Back to the World of Outlaws

Concord, NC -- Nov. 17, 2006 -- Danny Lasoski is one of the most successful drivers in World of Outlaws history, and in 2007 he will return to the series as driver of the Roth Motorsports Eagle.

"It's good to be back," said car owner Dennis Roth, a long-time sprint car supporter from California that saw Lasoski compete on 94 nights in 2006 and capture the National Sprint Tour title. "The best thing for sprint car racing is that the top cars are back together where they belonged from the beginning. We had a great year in 2006. The competition in the NST was awfully tough like it is in the World of Outlaws. We were very happy to win the championship."

"Danny raced with us quite a bit last season and we're pleased he and Dennis have decided to compete for another World of Outlaws championship," said World of Outlaws Sprint Series Director Carlton Reimers. "Dennis Roth is one of the classiest owners in the business and we look forward to seeing him more often in 2007."

The 2001 World of Outlaws champion, Lasoski will seek to add to his total of 74 World of Outlaws victories beginning Feb. 9 at Volusia Speedway Park as the series drops the green flag on its 30th season.

"The competition is going to be the fiercest it has ever been with the World of Outlaws," Roth said. "Two series in 2006 gave some of the new people out there a chance to gain some experience and make the programs and be in the running every night. Now, they're going to be that much better and that much more to contend with. Overall the whole racing program is going to be the best it has ever been."

Last season, Lasoski earned main-event World of Outlaws victories at Manzanita Speedway and Southern Oregon Speedway, as well as a preliminary feature win at Calistoga Speedway. He was excited to be the first driver to commit to the 2007 World of Outlaws championship run following the 16 teams that re-signed after the 2006 season concluded.

"The bottom line is to secure 410 sprint car racing," said Lasoski, of Dover, Mo. "I feel we need to be back together as one group under one banner, stronger than ever. The World of Outlaws has done its homework, they got the proper television package with ESPN2 and SPEED and I'm excited to be coming back. I think really great things are on the horizon and the biggest winner will be the fans."
