WEIGHT LIFTER: Dollansky Wins His Third Ironman 55 Title
Minnesotan holds off Schatz for World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55
PEVELY, Mo. - Aug. 3, 2013 - The Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway is one of the most unique annual events on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series tour each season, but Craig Dollansky proved once again he has the muscle to get to victory lane.
For the third consecutive year, Dollansky and his Big Game Treestands team powered to victory in the tough 55-lap event at the high-banked, 1/3-mile oval just south of St. Louis, and collected $20,000 for winning.
Dollansky, who started on the pole, and Jac Haudenschild waged a fierce battle up front as the action was wild throughout the field. Haudenschild led the first 12 laps before Dollansky slid in front on a restart. Haudenschild went back to the lead on lap 24 and held it until he climbed the wall and tumbled on a lap-29 restart, turning the lead back over to Dollansky, who ultimately had to hold off hard-charging Donny Schatz down the stretch for the win.
