Kansas City, KS – June 8, 2013 – Craig Dollansky pocketed a cool $10,000 for his World of Outlaw Sprint Car win tonight at Lakeside Speedway in a race that took just over 8 minutes to complete. The Elk River, MN chauffer started fifth and needed but two laps before taking the lead. Once there he would be unchallenged. Jason Sides, who led the first two laps, finished second. Sammy Swindell received the Hard Charger award, passing five other competitors, on the way to his third place finish. Daryn Pittman and Cody Darrah rounded out the top-five.

The USRA B-Modifieds feature had four different leaders and 5 different lead changes in their 15-lap race. The last three laps the top three drivers were door to door exchanging positions. Gene Claxton took the lead initially and would lead again during laps 12 and 13. Brad Smith lead laps 4 thru 10. Chad Clancy was always in the hunt, leading lap 11 but at the end it was Mike Higley who would cross the finish line first, leading only the last two laps. Higley, Claxton and Clancy finished ahead of the hard chargers, Dakota Foster, who started 22nd, and Smith, who raced back to finish fifth after being caught up in a crash.
