Motorsport: Dollansky confirmed as final Team USA member

Craig Dollansky will be the last member of 'Team USA' to compete in the Porter Hire International Sprintcar Series on the 3rd and 10th December at Vodafone Speedway Western Springs.

Dollansky will be piloting the Salter Cartage USA #1 car which is the same one they ran with Sammy Swindell here a couple of years ago.

"The car is ready to go", said Ron Salter "and it's great to have Craig back driving for us" he said.

"It's been 10 years since Craig was here, and he is very excited to be back.

"I won this thing last time I was there, and I intend to win it again", said Dollansky.

Dollansky a native of Elk River, Minnesota, has been nicknamed 'The Crowd Pleaser' for his aggressive and impressive style of driving.

He is a second generation driver, following his father Bill Dollansky, who raced with the Midwest Sprint Association in the 70's and early 80's.

Craig Dollansky has raced full time with the 'World of Outlaws Sprint Series' from 2001 and at one stage never finished out of the top 10 in the World of Outlaw Championship for seven years in a row.
