Dollansky Aims for Third Consecutive Ironman Title at I-55
Challenging World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car event Aug. 2-3 near St. Louis
PEVELY, Mo. - July 26, 2013 - It's perhaps the most challenging race on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series schedule. It's a race that demands so much out of a driver that two years ago the winner couldn't even lift the trophy in victory lane. It's the fifth annual Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55.
The event returns to two days once again this year, Friday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 3, in two complete events at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, just south of St. Louis. Night one is challenging in its own right on the high-banks of I-55, but the second night is a 55-lap display of all that is right about dirt track racing.
Competing all out for 55 laps against the toughest winged sprint car racers in the world on the high-banked 1/3-mile Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is no small task -- especially in the heat of summer in the St. Louis suburbs. Breathtaking speeds and wicked slide jobs. Wheel-to-wheel action on nearly every inch of the track. Fearless competitors taking their 900 horsepower cars to the edge.
