Top Ten at Knoxville Precedes All-Stars at Huset's

PR by Reid VanEck - July 22, 2014

Hampered by Mother Nature the past three weekends, Knoxville Raceway has stood silent on Saturday nights since the Big Game Treestands #7 team dominated the feature on June 21st.  Nearly a month later, the weather was finally much better for racing in southern Iowa as ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ signed in for 3M Night at the historic half-mile.

With 35 drivers on hand, the racing program got off to an early hole as a late draw for qualifying saw Dollansky register the 22nd fastest lap in qualifying.  Heat action would then see the #7 start on the pole and lead the first few laps before surrendering the lead to Brian Brown finishing in the runner-up.

In the 20-lap A-Main the Aggressive Hydraulics backed entry lined up deep in the pack outside row nine.  Using a commanding opening lap, the Elk River, Minnesota native powered his way up to twelfth before the only caution on lap 7.  Advancing two additional positions on the restart to crack the top-ten Dollansky continued to make forward progress battling for ninth with just five laps to go but taking the checkered flag in 10th.

“Our motor didn’t run to start the night and put ourselves in a hole in qualifying,” commented Dollansky.  “We got it running better for the heat and feature but still not as good as it should.  We were able to get into the top-ten and if a few things went differently we probably could have gotten in the top-five somewhere.  The car was good and we’ll keep working on getting our program stronger.  Guy Forbrook and the guys are doing a great job and working hard every week!”

Strong Start, Hard Ending at Huset's

PR by Reid VanEck - July 14, 2014

Following the third consecutive week that competition was rained out at Knoxville Raceway, Craig Dollansky and the Big Game Treestands #7 team returned to action Sunday as they prepared for battle at Huset’s Speedway.

Signing into the high-banked bullring for the fourth time this season, the racing program got off to a strong start for ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ as he piloted the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim to the 2nd fastest lap in qualifying among the 20 cars signed in.  Twelve cars inverted in two heats then put Dollansky outside row three for heat two where the Elk River, Minnesota native finished in 4th.

Eager to go at it for 25 laps around the 3/8-mile, Dollansky lined up inside row five for the A-Main after the 10 pill inversion was drawn.  When the green flag waved, the field stormed into turn one but a spinning frontrunner left the Eyecon Trail Cameras backed sprinter with nowhere to go and brought out the caution.  The damage sustained was too much to repair and unfortunately retired the #7 from action.

Quick stats: 
FIELD: 20 CARS
QUALIFYING: 10.966 - 2nd
HEAT RACE 2: 4th, start (6)
A-MAIN: 19th DNF, start (9)
