2001 WORLD OF OUTLAW CHAMP TEST DRIVES FOR IROC AT CHICAGOLAND SPEEDWAY

Share:
The True Value IROC Racing Series began another week of testing for Round Three of IROC XXVI at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois on July 13.

Fellow IROC test driver Jim Sauter and 2002 IROC Series rookie driver, Danny Lasoski, joined Dave Marcis, who was the lone driver for the initial test the beginning of May. Because of the success IROC had with their first test at Chicagoland Speedway, they were able to simulate a full 67-lap race (100 miles) during the morning session. ?They each had a chance to lead a lap, practice passing and they were able to run two-wide around the track,? said Jay Signore, president of the True Value IROC Racing Series.

Signore says they weren?t sure what to expect from the last week of tests at the track, but they are almost ready for the race. ?We got more done during the last test than what we thought. Because we have the initial chassis and tire set-up now, we want to really go at it and prepare for Round Three here.?

2001 Pennzoil World of Outlaws Champion, Lasoski, who is a rookie this year in the True Value IROC Racing Series, says (IROC) is going to put on a great show for race fans July 13. ?IROC has done a great job preparing these cars here at Chicagoland, and with the race track being really fast with two grooves, fans can expect a fantastic IROC race.?

Lasoski, who will take part in the IROC 100 on July 13, will also run in the World of Outlaws event in Joliet. The ?-mile dirt oval track at Route 66 Raceway (Chicagoland Speedway?s sister track), will be the stage for some of the best dirt oval racing to come to area. Lasoski will drive the #20 Outlaw car owned by NASCAR Winston Cup driver Tony Stewart. "It?s great because we?re coming back here to the Midwest where the grass root Sprint Car race fans are at, plus I?ll have a lot of friends here, so that will be nice.?
