Fresh off their 5th victory of the season on Saturday, the Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team wrapped up 2013 action in Wisconsin the following night as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars made their annual visit to Cedar Lake Speedway just outside New Richmond.

A gorgeous day of weather with plenty of sunshine presented itself as a huge crowd gathered at the 3/8-mile to see 27 sprinters do battle.  Posting the 10th fastest lap in qualifying at 11.682 seconds, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ started on the pole of heat one and raced closely with Chad Kemenah before finishing in the runner-up spot to move into the dash.  After the crew of DJ Lindsey, Pete Stephens, Sean Michael, and Chevy Corn changed powerplants under the hood of the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim, Dollansky started outside row four of the dash and finished 7th in the 6-lap race.

In the 35-lap A-Main the MobileStar #7 started seventh.  Working his way up to sixth in the early going, right-front contact with Bill Balog on lap 5 sent Dollansky spinning and brought out the caution.  Able to restart at the tail of the field, Dollansky advanced to seventeenth before the next caution and then diced it up all over the track powering high and low to work his way back up to the top-ten running ninth before another yellow on lap 24.

When action resumed trouble once again found the Eaton’s Aeroquip Performance Products backed sprinter this time involved right-front contact with Kerry Madsen once again spun Dollansky and forced him to give up track position and restart at the tail.  Running fifteenth before a caution on lap 27, the Elk River, Minnesota native gained one spot in the final eight circuits finishing 14th.

The Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team will now spend a couple of days at the shop in Windom, Minnesota before opening up the month of July this Wednesday at Huset’s Speedway outside Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
