Lagasse at Daytona International Speedway:
Scott will be making his 11th career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Daytona International Speedway.  He also has three starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and two in the ARCA Racing Series at the Daytona Beach, FL track. This event will be Lagasse’s 62nd career XFINITY series start and his first in the No. 24 Toyota for JGL Racing.

Scott’s Thoughts on Daytona International Speedway:
“I am excited to work with all of the guys at JGL Racing.  Daytona is always a special race for me as it is so close to home. It doesn’t get much better than lots of family, friends and a fast race car at my home track.”

“Everyone at JGL Racing has been great to work with and they have prepared a fast car for me.  With Joe Gibbs Racing horsepower and a strong No. 24 Toyota – I have high expectations for this weekend in Daytona.”

Scott Lagasse, Jr. – Alert Today Florida Spokesperson:
Racing in Daytona provides the perfect platform to spread the Alert Today Florida Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety message. Volusia County ranks in Florida’s top 20 list for traffic crashes resulting in fatalities and serious injuries of pedestrians and bicyclists.

In its third year, Scott Lagasse Jr.’s Champions Ride for Bicycle Safety, held on February 19, 2017, brought together a collection of NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers, Olympians and Ironman triathlon champions, all riding in the name of increased cyclist safety and motorist awareness for cyclists on the roads.

“Every fatality is someone’s friend, co-worker, or family member, and they are all important,” stated Lagasse. “If our efforts this weekend saves even one life, I will consider that a success, because Every Life Counts!”

“If I had to choose one thing for people to remember after the races this weekend, it would be that speed belongs on the track, not on the road. NASCAR drivers are required to slow down on pit road for the safety of the pit crews, and drivers on the road should remember to slow down for the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists. If we all work together we can eliminate these senseless losses.”

“Alert Today Florida is a terrific partnership. The comprehensive state and local investments in engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency response are key to saving lives. Adding the Florida Lottery through my success in their Bright Futures Scholarship program, provides even more exposure and opportunities to both Alert Today Florida and the Florida Lottery.”
