Inside Line Promotions – WINDOM, Minn. (Sept. 26, 2016) – The sophomore season for the National Sprint League will wrap up this weekend.

Defending series champion Danny Lasoski leads the NSL championship standings by 459 points entering this weekend.

Ian Madsen, who is 271 points behind Brown, is the only other driver outside of Lasoski, Dollansky and Brown to qualify for every National Sprint League A Main this season.
