AUTOParkit™ Driver Lawless Alan Back on Podium
July 15th, 2017 Irwindale Speedway – Los Angeles, California Direct off a 3rd Place finish at Irwindale Speedway on July 1st, Lawless Alan, Driver of the AUTOParkit™ #25 Chevrolet, battled his way to the podium again finishing 3rd in the “Pick Your Part” NASCAR Late Model Main Event Saturday Night. Several thousand fans cheered on the seventeen-year old as he made two key low line passes to move his car into third as the laps counted down.
Just as it looked like he was assured of his second straight podium on the beautiful Southern California Summer night, a late race caution came out as the 88 and 77 got together sending Nick Joanides in the #77 car into the wall. That set the stage for a Green, White, Checkered that did not disappoint as the fans stood on their feet to watch the front of the field go three wide into Turn 1. With a missed shift by Andrew Porter in the high line, the field stacked up as Trevor Huddleston and Lawless Alan dove to bottom, door to door, making it 3 wide heading into Turn 2. By the time they reached the back straight away the three leaders began to gap the field sending Lawless to the podium for the second straight weekend. “It’s exciting to have AUTOParkit™ back on the podium” said Crew Chief Mike Dunkleberger. “The kid [Lawless Alan] did a great job on that restart diving to the white line and taking it three wide. That’s a scary place to be when you’re door to door but man it sure makes for great racin’[sic]!”
The schedule takes the AUTOParkit™ Racing Team to San Bernardino, California next Saturday, July 22nd at Orange Show. The quarter mile oval never disappoints as it always makes for good side by side racing. Come out to the track or follow us on line at www.AUTOParkit.com.

Lawless’ First Career Win Caps Sponsor Night And the crowd goes wild… September 9th, 2017 Irwindale Speedway – Los Angeles, California -- Lawless Alan, driver of the AUTOParkit™ #25 Chevrolet Late Model
Lawless’ First Career Win Caps Sponsor Night
And the crowd goes wild…
September 9th, 2017 Irwindale Speedway – Los Angeles, California — Lawless Alan, driver of the AUTOParkit™ #25 Chevrolet Late Model won the opening race to capture his first checkered flag. Chad Schug driver of the AUTOParkit #29 Chevrolet Legend finished in 2nd Place in the third race. It was all quite thrilling considering it was the Inaugural Sponsor Night that found both drivers on the podium!
Jerry Seinfeld once quipped, “There is no such thing as fun for the WHOLE family!” Apparently, he has never been to a NASCAR Race on Sponsor Night. We had everyone from young children to those that are still young at heart. “We were fortunate to have great representation from the sponsors that help support Dasher Lawless Racing”, summarized Shawn Adams VP of Marketing and Sales for Dasher Lawless Automation. “Not only were we fortunate to spend so much time with everyone socially the entire crowd got to witness Lawless Alan’s first career win. It was a special moment.” After the race was won, the victory lap taken and the photos were snapped, Lawless was able to come to the private suite to share a few moments with his biggest fans.
“Yea, it was a special moment. He has been training for the past few years and he was awfully close on some other races, but to see him finally finish in first, it doesn’t get any better than that.”, beamed Christopher Alan President of Dasher Lawless Automation.
Just before the race, all the Sponsors went down on the track for the autograph session. It was fun to interact with both drivers who posed for pictures and answered several questions.
David Hughes from NORD Gear flew all the way from Wisconsin to take part in the event. Afterwards he said, “I thought it was an absolutely perfect night. Both of our drivers on the podium and to see Lawless’s first win. I’m not sure how you would top that.”
John McElhinny from Siemens was also on hand and had a similar assessment. “I wished him [Lawless] luck when we met on the racetrack, but in the back of my mind I didn’t think he would need it. He seemed ready to go and you could tell the competitive fire was already starting to burn. I was happy to see him win.”
“We had a great time!! My wife, Karen, now wants to try to go to Fontana to see more NASCAR races. Very happy for Lawless and Christopher on the first win!!”, wrote Mike Todd from JD2 Inc.
“Standing on the track I was surprised how young Lawless looked and I had to remind myself that he is still in high school! Well he may look young, but he drove like a veteran today. Nice to be part of the whole event and witness his first career win.”, noted David Darnel of EandM.
There is an adage that says, “It is better to be lucky than good.” So as far as September 9, 2017 at the Inaugural Sponsor Night is concerned ,it is fair to say that the night had a little bit of both. Thanks again to all the sponsors and their continued support of Dasher Lawless Racing.
