Six events in eleven days across three states rolled off on Thursday for Craig Dollansky and the Big Game Treestands #7 team as they returned to Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania for ‘The Gettysburg Clash’ which marked the first World of Outlaws event at the facility since 1998.
After Mother Nature washed out the originally scheduled Wednesday show, much better weather greeted a shout field of 45 cars who signed in for action. As the racing program got underway, Dollansky stopped the clocks 8th fastest in qualifying by piloting the MobileStar Maxim to a lap of 14.930 seconds around the 3/8-mile. Lining up inside row two of heat #4, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ chased Lance Dewease for a spot in the dash but finished 3rd to still secure a spot in the main event.
Following some work to the racing surface the Aggressive Hydraulics #7 lined up inside row eight for the 30-lap A-Main. After a caution on the initial start the race stayed green until another yellow flag on lap 3. Racing would then stay green until lap 12 when Dollansky looped the Eaton’s Aeroquip Performance Products backed sprinter in turn 3 & 4. Restarting at the back of the pack and enduring a trio of cautions in the final 18 circuits, the Elk River, Minnesota native crossed the checkered flag in 22nd.
Up next for the Big Game Treestands #7 team is a pair of events at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania beginning tonight.
