Cautions Aplenty in Return to Fremont

After a year of absence, Fremont Speedway was inked on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series schedule again in 2013 as the Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team returned to the 1/3-mile facility on Saturday.  Recording a fifth place performance two years ago, ‘The Crowd Pleaser’ was eager to return to the track in Fremont, Ohio which also marked the final event in September for ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’.

With a solid field of 46 sprinters on hand, qualifying saw Dollansky stop the clock at 12.489 seconds which was 25th fastest.  Missing the heat race inversion put the MobileStar #7 on the outside looking in for heat five where the Elk River, Minnesota native started inside row five.  After a multi-car pileup on the opening lap of the heat, the #7 crew scrambled to make repairs and Dollansky rejoined the field racing to the 4th and final transfer spot in the 10-lap event.

In the 40-lap A-Main the Aggressive Hydraulics Maxim lined up outside row eleven.  When the first two attempts to start the main event were halted by cautions, the third try was a charm until another yellow by lap 4.  After three more cautions by just lap 10 prompted a fuel stop, the feature would be mired by three more yellows just past the halfway point on lap 22.  Running twenty-first after a red and two additional cautions by lap 31, the Eaton’s Aeroquip Performance Products backed sprinter struggled to advance in the remaining nine circuits and finished 21st.

The Eyecon Trail Cameras #7 team will now head to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania for National Open weekend at Williams Grove Speedway.
