Quote Log

Danny Lasoski:

On the upcoming race at Lone Star Speedway:

"We got another fast time out in Vegas, but man do we want a win. We don't want to sound greedy, because we did pick up two spots in the points, but we race to win. Lone Star Speedway is another one of those tracks where we've been fast, and we're looking to keep it that way this weekend. We all know Steve (Kinser) will be going after his 500th win, but we're not going to let him just have it. He's going to have to earn it."
