Pevely, MO (July 10, 2004) A full house of 109 racecars checked in to compete in the four divisions on a hot and muggy night at I-55 Raceway.

Dollansky Leads Flag-to-Flag in I-55 Victory By Richard Day PEVELY, MO (April 17) – Craig Dollansky’s roller coaster season took an upward turn Saturday at I-55 Raceway. “The Crowd Pleaser,” who suffered ankle injuries at Manzanita Speedway in February and lost the lead when he crashed with a lapped car Friday, dominated Saturday’s World of Outlaws Sprint Series “A” Feature at I-55 Raceway. “This definitely helps,” Dollansky said after leading all 40 laps in the main event. “We had the fastest car last night before we got taken out by a lapped car. I think that with D.J. Lindsey and Rod Fauver I’ve got the best crew I’ve ever had, and they gave me a great racecar all night. Along with everyone else who makes this happen: Scott Boyd, VMAC, Hoosier tires, Charlie Garrett engines, and Maxim Chassis.” The $10,000 victory, Dollansky’s first of the season, pushed him from 10th …
