Daggett Digs Up ASCS SOD Win at Winston!
From Mike Strevel
ROTHBURY, Mich. (July 29, 2011) – In front of a capacity crowd at Winston Speedway, Dustin Daggett of Grand Ledge, MI, picked up his sixth feature win of the 2011 ASCS Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP season.
The Renegade Race Fuels sponsored feature event went green to checkered, the fourth time this year that an ASCS SOD feature event has gone uninterrupted by a caution flag.
The fifth-starting Daggett had to fight his way to the front, fighting for position with early leader Andy Teunnesen and Joe Bares. It was near the half way point of the feature that the winningest driver in ASCS SOD took the lead and dominated the remainder of the feature. A late charge by Brett Mann made things interesting, but there was no denying the driver of the Mott Motorsports 2m.
The top five in the MAHLE/Clevite short track challenge event were Daggett, Mann, Ryan Ruhl, Bares and Teunnesen.
Taking heat victories were Daggett and Mann. The Gaerte Engines Dash went to Matt Lumbert and a special Australian pursuit race went to Daggett. This victory also qualified Daggett for the Oshweken Shootout at Oshweken Speedway on September 16, 2011.
