From CDR


Eight events in ten days spanning three states came to a close on Sunday for the Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team as they took on Antioch Speedway for the second time in 2013 which also marked the end of the Gold Rush Tour.

Located not too far from the bay area of San Francisco, 33 drivers signed into the pit area on a steamy California day with temperatures hovering around triple digits.  After a late draw for qualifying, Dollansky battled a track that got significantly slower and drier as time trials wore on recording the 20th fastest lap at 12.486 seconds.  In heat action the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim started fifth and ran 5th.

After final preparations were made for the A-Main, the MobileStar #7 started deep in the pack outside row ten.  Advancing to fifteenth before a caution on lap 8, Dollansky fell back a few positions as the feature wore on as passing became extremely difficult on the rubber-down racing surface as the Elk River, Minnesota could not do anything but fall in line and manage his tires before taking the checkered flag in 18th.

“It was great to race as many days as we did but the West Coast swing was frustrating for our team,” explained Dollansky.  “We will put it behind us and get ready for this coming weekend which we’re looking forward to.  There is still a lot of racing to go this season so we’ll keep working hard to get back to where we need to be.”

With action on the West Coast complete the Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team will now head back to the Midwest where racing resumes this coming weekend at Clay County Fair Speedway in Iowa on Friday and then Deer Creek Speedway in Minnesota the following night.
