It’s All David Gravel At I-94 Speedway

Pittman’s fast time in qualifying of 13.004, a track record in the Kasey Kahne Racing Great Clips car, would not help in running down Gravel, but was good enough for the runner-up position, which helped him strengthen his advantage atop the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship standings.

“I think we were good, we hung with him pretty much the whole time, he pulled five or six car lengths and I felt like we could maintain that, but that’s all we had,” said Pittman. “There are good seconds and bad seconds, and I’m happy with that. Sometimes you just leave everything out on the track and you get beat and that’s just how it goes. He made 30 really good laps. I knew I was going to need him to make a mistake either in traffic or on his own and he didn’t, he made 30 good laps.”

Big Game Motorsports teammates Swindell and Dollansky battled hard to settle the final spot on the podium. Dollansky threw several slide jobs at Swindell, but the legend never wavered.

“Tonight everything kind of went our direction, I mean we were close and we learned a lot tonight, but sometimes track position just takes it away,” said Swindell. “We’ve had quite a few of these thirds and some fourths. Some nights we’ve just had little things happen, but it’s all coming together.”

Dollansky would settle for a fourth place finish while Kraig Kinser would eventually secure the fifth spot. The younger Kinser had to hold off charges from father, Steve, and Donny Schatz.
