Say What!

“This is for my grandma, my grandpa, my mom, Danny (Lasoski) and my whole family, I sat up in section G, Row 19 for a lot of years. She was a big part of my life and career. I’m just proud of all of our guys. Winning here never gets old. The Dunkin’s did a wonderful job with the track. There were four or five lanes out there. I got to Justin there, and I couldn’t figure out how to get by him. I knew I had to attack. This is probably the toughest field we’ll face until the Outlaws get here. It’s fun.” Brian Brown winning at Knoxville Raceway IA
