Michigan's Lane Racing Signs Zane DeVault for run at FAST on DIRT Title




Lane Racing, the Allenton, Michigan-based sprint car team announced via social media on Friday night that they have signed Plymouth, Indiana native, Zane DeVault. Last season, both the driver and the team were going through very different seasons and different goals.


For DeVault, he was heavily involved in racing bouncing around with Jeff McCall and Jeremy Scadden among other owners piecing together a season that included at least seven feature wins, over a dozen top fives, and over two dozen top 10s between the Carolinas and Dakotas. DeVault now signs with a team that focused primarily on racing with the All-Star Circuit of Champions in 2023 with Chris Windom behind the wheel.


"I'm grateful for the opportunity to run for Lane Racing," DeVault said. [To] race at the level that they've been racing at is exciting. I'm happy to be closer to home racing as many races as we possibly can," he explained.


DeVault has raced with Brett and Patty Lane in the past, and their success was virtually immediate.


"The last time I raced with [Lane Racing] we ended up in Victory Lane at Atomic," recalled DeVault. "I think that we'll be able to get back there pretty soon and maybe start off the way we finished, with a win."


Lane Racing and Windom were held winless in 2023 but showed great speed all season. Of the 39 events they competed at with the All-Stars, 23 times they finished inside the top 10; 9 of which were top-five finishes, and they finished second in the final Championship Points Standings. They also scored a top 10 with the High Limit Sprint Car Series before the end of the season.


"Zane and I share the same passion for the entire picture of what it takes to try and succeed in being full time in sprint car racing," said Brett Lane co-owner of Lane Racing. "We both understand that it’s going to be a little harder for us and take a lot work and sacrifices to be successful in this sport, but that’s what drives my decision in choosing him to drive the 4 car."


According to the post on social media Friday night, the team, which showed no sponsorship on the car at this point, will contest the full FAST on DIRT schedule for 2024, which assumed the All-Star Circuit of Champions "Ohio Region" of races after the official acquisition of the All-Stars by High Limit Racing went national. FAST on DIRT will contest the Ohio Sprint week among other key events formerly known to the All-Stars roster; and will pay out $15,000 to win their championship.


"I wanted Lane Racing to focus on helping support sprint car racing on a level other than having to commit to the World of Outlaws," explained Lane. "Some teams just aren’t ready to take the leap, we are one of them. FAST gives us a place to call home and we are excited to be a part of the Series."


The first scheduled race of the season for FAST on DIRT is Saturday, March 16th at Pittsburg Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Lane Racing and Zane DeVault will kick off their 2024 season racing for $4,000 to win.
