TeamSLR on a Roll as Scott Lagasse Jr. Wins Again

19, August 2011 Dirt, News, Press Releases, TeamSLR

Batting 4 for 4, Scott Lagasse Jr. was able to regain the lead late in Saturday evenings Feature Race at Volusia Speedway Park and earn another trip to Victory Lane. Scott has only competed in 4 dirt races this season but is batting 1000% and enjoying every minute of it. I love dirt racing and I cant wait to race with these guys. We have been on a roll lately with TeamSLR and the car has been great to drive. I owe a special Thanks to TeamSLR as well as everyone at Incredible Pizza for their support of our program.
Scott Jr won his heat race but would start 3rd for the feature event, after the random field inversion. Moving quickly into the second position before the completion of lap #1, Scott Jr was moving around the track trying different grooves looking for speed from his #11 Chevrolet. The track was a little slick tonight with just enough small bumps to upset the car on the entry and exit of the corners. Once I figured out the combination of what the car liked and where I needed to be on the track, it was time to put it all together.
Just passed the half way point Scott worked the top repeatedly setting up the pass for the lead into turn 1. Scott arched the entry and took to the bottom into turn2 and made it stick as he took the lead. Both drivers fought for 2 laps for the lead with Scott Jr clearing the 2nd place car with 3 to go and set sail for the checkers.
That was more fun than I have had in a while and it was really great racing, cant wait to do it again!

TeamSLR will be racing asphalt for the next couple weekends and back to dirt on Aug., 26th with Aaron Barsness behind the wheel.
