St. Augustine, FL (September 16, 2013)

Although racing is the primary reason for traveling to Kansas, Scott Lagasse Jr. and his team orchestrated their well known Drive a Boy Scout to School program on Wednesday and Thursday. Braden Korgol a Cub Scout who is in the second grade was driven to school by Lagasse on Thursday morning. “I don’t know who has more fun with this ride but it is great to see the Scouts so excited about our race program,” said Lagasse.

On Wednesday, Lagasse took 12-year-old Parker Hernandez to school in the No. 8 Boy Scouts of America Chevy Camaro in conjunction with the Great Plains SPCA special charity auction. The ride was in honor of Benjamin Cote who had a special connection with Lagasse.

“This is a big win for us and all of the Scouts that helped build and sign the car. The National Late Model Series is a terrific series with some of the best dirt racers in the country. Many of these guys have gone out of their way to welcome us into the Series and I owe an extra Thank You to Ivedent Lloyd for his help,” said Lagasse.

On Friday, October 4, 2013, Lagasse will drive the No. 22 FORT KNOX Vaults, St Augustine Alligator Farm, Jack Wilson Family of Dealerships, BSA car for Cunningham Motorsports at Kansas Speedway in the Kansas Lottery 98.9.

“I am glad that Kerry Scherer (Team Owner) called and I am really excited for another opportunity to win again with this team. I know the competition is stiff but Paul Andrews and crew chief Chad Bryant put together great race cars and we should be really competitive,” said Lagasse.

Two weeks ago, Lagasse won the National Dirt Late Model Series Race at Volusia Speedway Park. He was driving the BSA, St. Augustine Alligator Farm, Bug Out Services, Jack Wilson Chevy Camaro. This was a big win and the first for the thousands of Boy Scouts that helped build the race car at the BSA National Jamboree.

The race is scheduled for 100 laps which equals 150 miles around Kansas Speedway. “I love these fast tracks like Kansas and these ARCA Series Cars are a lot of fun to drive,”Lagasse said.
