Inside Line Promotions – JACKSON, Minn. (July 22, 2016) – Craig Dollansky entered the Winner’s Circle wearing a big smile on Friday during State Bank of Fairmont Night at Jackson Motorplex.

Dollansky led all 25 laps for the Spirit Lake Silver & Gold NSL 410 Sprint Cars featuring the National Sprint League main event, which was boosted to $10,000 to win earlier in the day. Dollansky also received a $1,000 bonus from Bosma Poultry for the victory.

He was joined in Victory Lane by Scott Winters, who captured the $2,500-to-win Richard White Memorial during Last-Deck® 360 Sprint Cars featuring the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series competition, and Liquid Nitro IMCA 305 Sprint Cars winner Bruce Anderson.

“I love this place,” Dollansky said. “It’s an awesome track. We had a great starting spot, but that doesn’t guarantee anyone a win.”

Dollansky, who was the polesitter, dominated after it took three starts to get the main event rolling. A red flag for Skylar Prochaska flipping after contact with Willie Croft and Travis Whitney was followed by a bad start that brought out another caution.

The third attempt to start the race stood and Dollansky was the front runner from the drop of the green flag. Bill Balog and Sammy Swindell had a spirited battle for the runner-up position for most of the race before Danny Lasoski took advantage of traffic on Lap 20 to sneak by both drivers on the same lap to take over second place.

The final caution of the race came on Lap 23 when ninth-running Matt Juhl had a flat right rear tire. However, Lasoski was unable to make a bid for the lead on the restart as Dollansky picked up his series-best third feature victory of the season to extend his advantage in the championship standings to 43 points over Lasoski.

“I want to thank Tod Quiring for everything he is doing for sprint car racing in the Midwest,” Lasoski said in Victory Lane following his series-leading seventh podium finish.

Swindell passed Balog for the final spot on the podium on Lap 24. It marked Swindell’s third podium finish in his last three National Sprint League races.

“We had a real good race with Balog,” he said. “We got caught up with a lapped car and that let Lasoski get by both of us. That was a lot of fun tonight.”

Ian Madsen maneuvered around Balog on the final lap for fourth place with Balog rounding out the top five.

The night began with Lasoski setting quick time during qualifying for the fifth time this year before Scott Winters, Brian Brown and Tim Kaeding each won a heat race.

The National Sprint League returns to action on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway, where hot laps is scheduled to begin at 6:45 p.m. with qualifying at 7:15 p.m.

Tickets for the event at Knoxville Raceway are $15 for adults, $10 for ages 13 to 19 and free for ages 12 and younger. Pit passes are $25.

Winters led wire to wire to capture his second straight triumph at the track.

“It was fast,” he said of the half-mile oval. “We got to lapped traffic and it kind of played to my favor.”

Winters, who started the 20-lap feature on the pole, quickly powered into a sizeable lead before Derrik Lusk began chipping away at it in the closing laps. Lusk was within approximately a half a second with only a couple of laps remaining, but Winters was efficient in traffic to garner the victory.

Lusk held off Lasoski for the runner-up position with James Broty placing fourth and points leader Gregg Bakker fifth.

Broty, Bakker and Justin Jacobsma each claimed a heat race win to open the action.

Anderson capitalized on his pole position to win his first race of the season. While Anderson led the distance of the 15-lap main event, points leader Michael Stien stayed within striking distance until the checkered flag was waved.

“I heard him a couple of times,” Anderson said. “I thought if I stayed on the bottom nobody was going to get me.”

Brandon Allen rounded out the podium with Trevor Serbus finishing fourth and Elliot Amdahl fifth.

Brett Wanner, Colin Smith and Nate Eakin were the heat race winners.

Jackson Motorplex will host racing on Saturday when the program features Wilmont Oil IMCA a mods, Bohl’s Small Engine & Marine IMCA sport mods, Minnesota West – Jackson Campus IMCA hobby stocks, Boji Bay Water Park IMCA sport compacts and After Hours Graphics & Tees IMCA stock cars.

The pits will open at 4 p.m. with the main gates opening at 5 p.m. Hot laps are scheduled for 7 p.m.
