Dupuy Leads ASCS Coastal Region into Mississippi Double

TULSA, Okla. (July 2, 2007) -- The night air in Mississippi will be filled by the roars of engines from the American Sprint Car Series Coastal Region as the series invades the Magnolia State for a pair of events this weekend.

On Friday night, the series makes its second stop of the season at Southern Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS. Then on Saturday night, it's the first ever ASCS appearance at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, MS.

And with four feature wins in nine ASCS Coastal Region events thus far, it is Amite, Louisiana's Michael Dupuy leading the way into the weekend double with a 66-point lead in the series championship points chase.

Dupuy's closest rival right now is Michael Herrington of Gonzales, LA, with Robert Casada of Petal, MS, ranked third. Timmy Thrash of Gulfport, MS, is currently fourth, with Todd Fayard of Saucier, MS, rounding out the current top five.

Biloxi's Shane Morgan enters the weekend double ranked sixth, while Denham Springs, LA, shoe Lane Whittington, fresh off his first ASCS Coastal Region win this past weekend, is seventh in points.

The balance of the current top ten includes Chris Sweeney (Channelview, TX), 15-year-old Hunter Phillips (Gulfport, MS) and Terry Vidrine (Slaughter, LA).
