WIN #2 AT CEDAR LAKE COULDN’T FEEL ANY BETTER FOR DOLLANSKY
NEW RICHMOND, WI (JULY 11, 2010) Sure, Craig Dollansky got to stand on the podium and receive the recognition for a fantastic win Sunday night, but he always remembers to thank his team personally for their dedication and hard work. And a team effort it was as Dollansky Racing came out on top at Cedar Lake Speedway in Wisconsin to earn their second A-Feature win of the season with the series and Craig’s second career win at the high-banked 3/8-mile.
There were plenty attempting to chase Dollansky down over the course of this 30-lap contest. Jason Sides started on the pole and looked for the top spot at the green and Sammy Swindell moved into second attempting to challenge Dollansky. Then, Jason Meyers moved into the runner-up spot later in the race and got alongside the leader a couple of times just prior to the halfway points of the race.
"It feels great to win," said Dollansky. "We have a very strong team here and everyone works so hard and they certainly deserve to win. It's been a long time since we won a race this year and it's not from a lack of effort, that's for sure. It takes a lot of work to get that done. We had a good dash draw which helped as well, but when you have something like that you have to capitalize on it. I was trying to not give the race away. I feel like I have given a couple away this year and was trying not to beat myself."
Dollansky stayed in front for three restarts choosing the low line for the first two and moving to the top of the track for the final restart on the 14 th lap. He used a strong start each time to charge into turns one and two as the leader.
"I did not want to give it away," shared the veteran driver, when asked about the move to the top on the double file restart. "I was in the lead at Grand Forks (River Cities Speedway) and gave it away on that final restart and I didn't want to let my team down tonight. My team has worked hard and we have had a couple of races slip away by my fault and a couple of mechanical problems. This is a great team. It's great to win with a lot of family and friends here and with our car owner Tod Quiring in the house. I couldn't be happier for everyone involved."
