Danny Lasoski Dominates 360 Nationals Opener!

by Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright

Knoxville, IA, August 6, 2015 – The 25th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank opened with Missouri’s Danny Lasoski leading flag-to-flag in Thursday’s preliminary A-Feature aboard the Parker/Mark Burch Motorsports No. 1m.

Lasoski’s third career preliminary A-Feature win in the 360 Nationals since 2012, the "Dude from Dover" was never challenged en-route to victory.

"This just goes to show you hard March Burch Works. He’s a one-man-band at home. He builds his own engines, does everything, and I just couldn’t be more proud of him," said Lasoski when asked about his performance. "We came here just to see if we could measure up, and weren’t even close. In Qualifying, we were even close, but he [Mark] never gave up and just kept working at it and it showed when it counted."

Asked if the run was a simple one, Lasoski replied, "It’s anything but simple. When you get these touring guys that come in, along with anyone else here, you’ve got the best guys in the country."

While Lasoski ran away on the start, the race for the runner-up spot began to take shape as Aaron Reutzel held off the charge of Casey Friedrichsen. Not able to put distance over the No. 20, the pair continued the fight as Lasoski build his advantage until the caution waved on Lap 7 for Nate Van Haaften whose axle sheered, launching the Left Rear down the back straight-a-way.

Back to green, Lasoski again pulled away with the red soon flying for a violent crash by Sawyer Phillips. Slow to emerge, the driver of the No. 3p was able to walk away.

Re-firing after an open red, the green light would not turn off again as Lasoski crossed 1.454 seconds ahead of the B.C. Funds No. 87 of Aaron Reutzel.

Changing gears during the open red, Aaron said the change was good but not enough, "It had to be a whole lot better to catch Danny. He’s just a rocket around here so what can you say running second to that guy. It definitely doesn’t hurt my feelings one bit."

Having to scramble after his Heat Race, Aaron elaborated on what happened, "I just can’t thank my guys enough. They worked their butts off. We had to change a Rear End after the Heat Race and it seemed like anything that could go wrong, did go wrong while we were changing it, plus we hurt our good motor a week ago. We had another motor to run, but it just wasn’t that strong so Scottie McDonald stepped up and loaned us a motor."

Crossing third was Casey Friedrichsen for his first top-five performance in his second career 360 Nationals preliminary A-Feature.

"We’re not going to complain one bit about being up here at the end of the night. I would like to be standing on either one of those other two spots, but we haven’t been down here as much as we need to run to get where those two guys are tonight, but we’ll take what we got with momentum and go into Saturday night and hopefully run good again."

Putting on moves in the closing laps, Calvin Landis crossed fourth from seventh with Clint Garner working to fifth from eighth.

Tenth starting Bronson Maeschen was sixth, followed by Tony Bruce, Jr. Working the low line, Billy Alley moved from 12th to eighth with Russ Hall and Ryan Roberts making up the top-ten.

Thursday night saw 48 drivers checking in. All drivers were able to take time with Clint Garner laying down the fastest lap at 16.301 seconds. Five Heat races went to Matt Moro, Joe Beaver, Ryan Roberts, Brandon Hanks, and Danny Lasoski.

The night’s C-Feature was won by Jordan Weaver. Knoxville’s Jamie Ball won the B-feature. The night’s Hard Charger was Bryan Clauson who advanced from 23rd to 12th.

The 25th Annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank continue Friday night, August 7, and Saturday, August 8! For more information on Knoxville Raceway, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Dusty Zomer Zooms to Victory Lane on Night #2 of the Knoxville 360 Nationals!

by Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright

Knoxville, IA, August 7, 2015 – A stacked field of drivers made the call for night-two of the Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank with Dusty Zomer capturing his fifth career victory in 360cid competition at the famed half-mile.

The second time Zomer has stood atop the podium on a 360 Nationals preliminary night, the non-stop, 20 lap A-Feature allowed the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82 to race to a 5.462 second advantage at the checkered flag.

"My Crew Chief gave me a great car tonight. I just has to be patient. I knew Brown was going to be fast, I knew Sammy was going to be fast; everyone was going to be fast, but I just had to be patient, run our race, and run our line," said Zomer in Victory Lane. "You know it was 20 laps and you don’t have to lead the first five, or the first 10, you just need to lead that last one."

Taking off from the pole, Brian Brown jumped to nearly a second advantage as Dusty Zomer worked past Sammy Swindell for the runner-up spot in the opening laps. Working low at both ends of the track, Zomer pulled even with the Casey General Store No. 21 on Lap 8. Wheel-to-wheel around the half-mile, Zomer shot to the top spot the following lap.

Green the remainder of the feature event, Zomer was uncontested; taking the win over Sammy Swindell, and in doing so, secures the second starting spot in Saturday’s $10,000 to win feature event.

Asked about the run, Sammy replied, "The first part doesn’t pay, it’s the end. We were off a little, so we need to go back and figure out where we are at. This is the first time to run this car on a half-mile with a 360, so I can’t complain."

Pulling off a close pass on the No. 21 for the second spot on Lap 18, Sammy talked about the pass saying, "He kept changing his mind. One lap he’d be low, the next he’d be high….just make up your mind. I got a good run off of one and slid him, and I guess he didn’t like it, but that’s how it goes."

Working on the No. 21 on the final lap, Terry McCarl put the SnowPlow.com No 24 on the final podium step.

"I thought we had a shot there at Sammy and Brian at one point. I looked up and they were just right in front of me, and I thought I had them both, but a lapped car came down and took my spot there, but that’s okay," said McCarl. "The car was good. I think we could have been a little bit better even, but overall a great night."

McCarl’s third place run puts the three time 360 Nationals Champion on the pole for Saturday night.

Making his No. 21 as wide as possible, Brian Brown was able to hold onto a fourth place finish with Kevin Swindell coming from 11th to complete the top-five.

As high as third in the latter part of the feature event, Wayne Johnson slipped to a sixth place finish trying to battle through the back markers. Chad Kemenah advanced eight spots to finish seventh with Jac Haudenschild eighth. Tim Shaffer finished ninth with Tony Shilling moving forward six spots to complete the top-ten.

Fifty-four drivers on Friday night brings the weekend total to 102 for the 25th Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank. Five Heat Races went to Tony Shilling, Dusty Zomer, Don Droud, Jr., Ian Madsen, and Wayne Johnson. The night’s C-Feature was won by Randy Hannagan. B-Feature action went to Josh Baughman.

The 25th Annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank concludes Saturday night with the championship! Knoxville Championship Cup Series 305 sprint cars will also be in action. For more information on Knoxville Raceway, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Terry McCarl Goes Flag-to-Flag for his Fourth 360 Nationals Victory!

by Bryan Hulbert and Bill Wright

Knoxville, IA, August 8, 2015 – If a face would appear next to the definition of the domination in the Dictionary, it just might be that of Terry McCarl, as the Altoona, Iowa native added a fourth championship trophy to his shelf in the 25th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.

Jumping to the lead twice as the caution for Justin Henderson and Ryan Roberts brought back the original start back, McCarl’s SnowPlow.com No. 24 buzzed the cushion with ease to lead the full 25 laps for the night’s $10,000 payday.

"Man, I’m use to going left after the scales. It’s been a while since I got to turn right here," chuckled an elated Terry McCarl following his fifth career Knoxville Raceway victory in a 360cid Sprint Car. "What an honor to win this event for the fourth time. I said earlier, we really hadn’t planned on running this weekend had it not been for Don Long and Searsboro Telephone and Jamie Moyle."

Asked what was his key to victory, McCarl replied, "Last night because we don’t run 360’s very often so it taught us a lot. We tightened the car more for tonight and when I was out there running, I thought if someone passes us, they must be running really good. I didn’t think the bottom was as good as it was last night. Dusty is so good on the bottom, and I didn’t ever hear anybody so I didn’t think there was enough to try down there."

As much as four seconds ahead of the No. 82 of Dusty Zomer, a few hold ups in slower traffic allowed the Buffalo Wild Wings entry to close to 2.719 seconds at the drop of the checkered flag.

"The car was close, but I knew Terry was going to be tough to beat coming off the front row like that too. It was going to be a good race, but the top was just wide open. Last night I was running on the bottom, but it was just a little narrow so I never really did give it a shot," said Zomer. "Hats off to Terry and his entire team. They were fast tonight."

Marking his best finish in the 360 Nationals, Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour point’s leader, Aaron Reutzel, took the final podium step in the B.C. Fundz No. 87 after pulling off a hard slide job through turns three and four; blocking the charge on the low line entering the first turn on the second lap.

"When you run third to T-Mac and Dusty Zomer, that’s nothing to hang your head over, especially looking at all the people we did beat," commented the Clute, Texas shoe. "This was a hell of a run by this team. I can’t thank Scottie McDonald enough with Dissolvalloy. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t be standing here tonight but I’ve got a lot of great people here tonight; especially Christy Miller and I know Bob’s looking down smiling right now."

Able to run down the No. 87 on several occasions, Wayne Johnson came close a few times to retake the third spot, but slower traffic kept the Townline Variety No. 77x fourth with Sammy Swindell taking fifth in the Cooper Motorsports No. 01.

Clint Garner crossed sixth with Brian Brown working from 11th to seventh. Danny Lasoski was eighth with Kevin Swindell making it to ninth from 15th. Bronson Maeschen was the night’s KSE Hard Charger with a 24th to 10th run.

With impending weather removing 305cid competition from the lineup, five features were contested with Jake Bubak winning the E-Feature. Jeff Swindell led the way in the D-Feature with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. taking the win in the C-Feature. The final chance to make the show went to Ryan Roberts.
