Quote Log

Danny Lasoski.

On the upcoming race at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

"Three fast times in three races is something this race team is very proud of. Paul Kistler and all the work that he's put into our Mopar engines has really given us a lot of confidence here at the beginning of the season. But you know us racers, we always want something more. Now we want a win. Las Vegas has been a really good track for me, and with my buddy and car owner Tony Stewart over there at the big track this weekend, we want to put on a good show for him. The weather is looking a lot better than it did earlier this week in California, so we're really looking forward to going racing again."

Tony Stewart, car owner

On splitting time between his Nextel Cup responsibilities and the World of Outlaws team while at Las Vegas:

"I'll be able to do what I need to do with The Home Depot Chevrolet and still have plenty of time to go over to The Dirt Track and watch Danny and the team. I'll have all Thursday night with them and then as soon as I'm done with qualifying on Friday I'll head over to The Dirt Track. I'll be busy as a car owner working with the team, but that's something I look forward to. It's why I'm involved with the World of Outlaws."
