With a prime starting position for the 35-lap A-Main outside the front row, Dollansky led the field into turn 1 before a red flag on lap 3 halted action. After a yellow on the ensuing restart prompted single-file restarts for the remainder of the main event due to deteriorating track conditions, the MobileStar #7 again paced the field until two more accidents on lap 5 and 13.
Following a yellow six circuits later, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ again used a great restart to power into turn 1 on the lowside while runner-up Jonathan Allard worked the highside. As the top two began to separate themselves from the rest of the field, the duo encountered lapped traffic on lap 29 but the final yellow of the feature was displayed two laps later. Holding the top spot with only four to go, Dollansky again hit his marks on the restart to seal his first victory of the 2013 season and first with primary sponsor Eyecon Trail Cameras onboard.
“It hasn’t been the start to the year we would liked to have but these guys have been working hard and we have been making progress,” commented Dollansky who vaulted up five spots in the point standings to 4th. “We had to overcome a bad pill draw as the track was definitely slowing up and we were able to get a good qualifying lap to set us up for the rest of the night.
“This all starts with Tod Quiring, he is a great supporter of our race team with this new Eyecon Trail Cameras brand we are flying for Big Game. We have a great race team with a lot of great people behind it like Aggressive Hydraulics, MobileStar, Aeroquip, and others. This is a tough arena out here in California, the track was a little bit of follow the leader but we had to put ourselves in position to get there. Any time you win is a total team effort and this is a great race team that is going to keep working hard.”
This coming weekend Craig Dollansky and the #7 crew of DJ Lindsey, Sean Michael, and Pete Stephens take on Stockton 99 Dirt Track for the inaugural STP World of Outlaws event on Friday, March 22nd, before a stop at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico the next night.
