Dan Lensing looks to contend for ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts Championship in 2005.

On the heels of an impressive third place showing in the final 2004 points standings during his rookie season, sophomore pilot, Dan Lensing is geared up for a run at the 2005 ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts championship!

After an eye opening sweep of the second show at Madison (WI) International Speedway towards the end of the 2004 season, Lensing looks to add to an already impressive resume and a 2005 Series championship is the number one priority for the Lefthander Chassis driver.

"Our team's goals for the upcoming season are to finish in the top five in points and possibly be a championship contender." Said the Rockton IL driver. "We also hope to win a race and pole again."

Lensing, now in his fifth season behind the wheel of a stock car captured one win and one pole both at Madison WI as well as an impressive three top five's and seven top 10s which propelled the up and coming star to a third place showing in the overall points chase as well as a runner-up showing in the final Rookie points standings just behind 2004 Series Champion and Rookie of the Year, Bobby Stremme. In the overall standings, Lensing finished behind Stremme and veteran Buckeye State driver, Scott Baker.

Lensing began his racing career driving for legendary car owner Gordon Corning, who owned the cars of the late racing great Joe Shear, at the tender age of 17. During that rookie campaign, Dan competed at the quarter-mile of Columbus 151 (WI) Speedway in 2001, placing 12th in the final standings.

The following season, he raced regularly at Rockford (IL) Speedway, finishing 10th in the final point standings and earning a pole position for the prestigious National Short Track Championships. During the course of that year, Dan bagged four top-five finishes and 11 top 10s.

In 2003 Dan made 15 starts at Madison (WI) International Speedway in the Limited Late Model division, recording one win and 13 top 10s. He placed fifth in the final point's rundown, besides missing the last event of the season. He has also gained experience at Wisconsin Dells (WI) Motor Speedway.

For the 2005 season, Lensing plans an all out assault on the 2005 ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts championship. When the 21-year-old has an off weekend, he'll be running his Ford Taurus at his home track in Madison WI.
