Looking Forward to 2015 with Destiny Motorsports

PR by Reid VanEck - October 9, 2014

As the 2014 season heads into the final month, Craig Dollansky is eager to announce his plans for next season while also reflecting on the past few years.

Since joining Big Game Motorsports at the end of 2009, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ has been very successful capturing 35 victories including the second most wins with the World of Outlaws when competing full-time in four of the five seasons.  While this season has been focused more around a regional-type schedule, Dollansky still captured five victories and will now close the book as a driver for Big Game Motorsports, an opportunity that he has greatly appreciated.

"We have had five good years together and I want to thank Tod, Lisa, and everyone involved with Big Game for their support over the past five years," commented Dollansky.  "To be together that long doesn't happen much in this sport.  My family and I are appreciative of the opportunity to race for Big Game Motorsports and the success we had together.

"This decision wasn't easy to make and I know it affects others also, including the crew on the Big Game Motorsports team.  I enjoyed my time working together with Guy Forbrook as we communicated well and he was one of the best crew chiefs that I have been fortunate enough to work with over my career.  Pete and Tony brought the needed strength to our team and I appreciate their hard work. I would also like to thank the former crew members that were a part of the success that was achieved during my five years with Big Game Motorsports along with our marketing partners and manufacturers for their support during my time there."

Battling in Top-Ten at National Open

PR by Reid VanEck - October 6, 2014

Big money was on the line Saturday for the Big Game Treestands #7 team at Williams Grove Speedway.  After Friday’s program rained out, much more favorable weather was in store the following day as ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ signed into ‘The Grove’ for the $50,000-to-win National Open.

Earning a top-five finish during weekly competition the week before at Williams Grove, a much more stout field of competition assembled at the paper-clip ½-mile on Saturday as 55 of the best drivers in the world signed in.  Qualifying 14th to earn a front row starting spot in heat competition, Dollansky battled ‘PA Posse’ local Don Kreitz Jr. before taking the top spot for good and winning the 8-lap event.  Securing a spot in the all-important dash, the Eyecon Trail Cameras Maxim started outside row four and finished 9th.

Set to go for 40-laps around the ½-mile for the 52nd running of the prestigious event, the Aggressive Hydraulics backed sprinter took seventh from Donny Schatz in the opening laps of the main event.  Hugging the low-line, Dollansky swapped positions with Schatz and Shane Stewart until a caution on lap 14.  When action resumed, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ again fought for position with Stewart and Lucas Wolfe before another yellow on lap 27.  Restarting on the inside of the double-file restart with 13 circuits remaining, a tough restart saw Dollansky lose a few positions and go on to finish just outside the top-ten in 11th.
