Strong Showing in Fergus Falls Debut

Following a top-ten finish in Grand Forks on Friday, the Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team traveled south to Fergus Falls, Minnesota the following night as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars geared up for their inaugural visit to I-94 Speedway.

After much anticipation and a huge crowd on hand at the highbanked 3/8-mile, Dollansky began the race program qualifying 8th at 13.217 seconds among the 28 drivers signed into the pit area.  Starting outside pole of heat two, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ led the endurance of the 8-lap event capturing his series-leading 12th heat race victory and earning a spot in the dash.  After a four pill inversion draw for the dash just missed the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim, Dollansky started outside row three advancing one spot to finish 5th.

In the 30-lap A-Main the MobileStar #7 lined up inside row three.  As the green flag waved on the 24-car field, the Elk River, Minnesota native worked the cushion of the highbanks to race around Kraig Kinser for fourth on lap 9.  Following a caution at the halfway point on lap 15, the Big Game Treestands #7 narrowed the gap on teammate Sammy Swindell as the leaders worked through lapped traffic.  With the laps winding down, Dollansky continued to motor around the highside but couldn’t quite get by Swindell when the checkered flag waved recording a top-five finish in 4th.

“We would have liked to get qualified a little bit better but it was a pretty good night all the way through,” commented Dollansky who holds 4th in the championship standings.  “It put us in a pretty good position after we won the heat race to get into the dash draw.  I hated to see the caution come out because it seemed like at that point it was about to get interesting.  The track was in nice shape where you could move around.  At the end of the day we got a decent finish and were happy to get to Fergus Falls which is a nice facility and hopefully we get back there again.”

The Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team of DJ Lindsey, Sean Michael, and Chevy Corn will spend the week at their shop in Windom, Minnesota prior to heading for LaSalle Speedway in Illinois when racing resumes on Friday, June 28th.
