Rothbury, Mi.. – (Friday,August 31,2012) – Point leader Gregg Dalman used his experience to negotiate a tricky slick track and won the 25 lap Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP feature Friday night in front of a large crowd at Winston Speedway.
Ryan Grubaugh and Dustin Daggett made up the front row with Grubaugh shooting out to the early lead. The yellow flew with only three laps in the books for a tangle between Pobanz, Nate Bostrom and Kirkendall in turn three but 8th starting Steve Irwin had already moved into 3rd.
Two laps after the green waved Irwin had taken the lead with Grubaugh and a fast closing Gregg Dalman chasing. With 10 laps in Irwin was hanging on over Dalman, Grubaugh, Dustin Daggett and Ryan Ruhl. Lap 14 saw Dalman pass Irwin and lapped traffic now was sliding up in front of the leaders. Lots of scrambling was taking place with Dalman still leading in the closing laps. As the white flag appeared Irwin and Ruhl came together in turn four.
Prior to that Grubaugh mounted a charge and pulled nearly even with Dalman but the cagy veteran in the 49t was up to the challenge. When the green and white came out Daggett made a bonsai charge but couldn’t get car to stick as Dalman took the win.
