Danny Lasoski was born into a racing family. His father George and uncle Tom Corbin were tearing up the tracks in Dannys youth, so being bit by the racing bug came as no surprise. Dannys racing career began at Saline County Speedway in Marshall, MO in 1980 when he began racing alongside his father George.
He enjoyed moderate success in the family-owned Lasoski and his first big break came when he was hired to drive Bobs 22 car in 1984. The two teamed for four wins including his first at Knoxville Raceway. Lasoski was also crowned the 1984 1-70 Speedway Track Champion at Odessa, MO. Following a successful tour with Derry, Lasoski was hired by Max Rogers in 1986 racking up 12 feature wins and his first Knoxville Raceway Track Championship .
Lasoskis career sky rocketed when he joined forces with Ron Kohls and Guy Forbrook in the summer of 1988. Together they would wreak havoc over the Midwest for the next five years racking up 100 wins, four Knoxville Raceway Track Championships and three Husets Speedway Track Championships.
Lasoski would join forces with Gil Sonner in 1994 and early 1995 to add another 37 feature wins to his career totals and his sixth Knoxville Raceway Track Championship. Forbrook and Lasoski would continue their admittedly rocky relationship in 1996 to add 22 more feature wins together and their seventh Knoxville Raceway Track Championship.
Lasoski found success on the World of Outlaws tour when he teamed with Dennis Roth in 1998. Over the next three years they would win 32 times with the WoO and win his first Knoxville Nationals. Tony Stewart would came calling in 2001 and the two became a dominant force on the Outlaw tour, a stunning 96 races together including three more Knoxville Nationals titles and the World of Outlaws Championship in 2001.
After parting ways with Stewart, Lasoski would once again fill the seat for Roth. The two teamed up for another 23 feature victories and the 2006 National Sprint Tour Championship.
Most recently Lasoski once again teamed up with Forbrook in 2008 to win his eighth Knoxville Raceway Track Championship and another seven victories.
Lasoski is also heavily involved with the Michael Ross Foundation (MRF), a non-profit charity organization benefiting the Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay, MI. Lasoski helps host and coordinate a celebrity golf tournament and auction to raise funds for the MRF. During the past 11 years, Lasoski and friends have raised over $1,400,000 to support the charity.
