ASCS SOD at Winston and Crystal this Weekend


From T.J. Buffenbarger, TULSA, Okla. (July 12, 2010) – The Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP continues the MAHLE / Clevite Short Track Challenge Friday and Saturday at the Winston Speedway and Crystal Motor Speedway. Friday will be the first appearance this season at Winston while Crystal will host the second of their three events this year.

Dain Naida not only leads the Short Track Challenge standings, but tied for the lead in the overall ASCS SOD points coming off the victory last Saturday at Owendale Speedway. Before last Saturday’s Naida’s last ASCS SOD feature win came at Winston. Ryan Grubaugh will look to overcome a mistake during the feature that dropped him back into a tie for the point lead with Naida.

Both Naida and Grubaugh will have to deal with Dustin Daggett returning to the circuit for both shows this weekend. Daggett once again is the leading feature winner in the series with three victories so far this season, one of which came during the season opener at Crystal.

As an added bonus Saturday’s event at Crystal can also be viewed or listened to live on the internet as part of Crystal Motor Speedway’s weekly webcast on presented by Engine Pro
