Mackey Takes ASCS Sprints on Dirt Crown with Hartford Triumph

HARTFORD, Mich. (September 9, 2006) -- Ken Mackey only had to take a green flag in Saturday night's season finale for the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz at Hartford Speedway Park to lock up the series' 2006 championship, but he left no room for doubt by scoring his fifth series win of the year in the 25-lap main event.

Starting ninth aboard the Mott Motorsports Brewster's Fine Food & Spirits/Torco Fuels No. 25m Maxim, Mackey had climbed all the way to third by the time the race's only caution flew.

On the ensuing restart, Mackey made quick work of Gary Fast then charged by pacesetter Ben Rutan to take command. Eighth-starter Dustin Daggett pulled alongside Mackey in lapped traffic during the latter stages, but Mackey fought off the bid to secure the win and the series title.

Daggett settled for second, with Fast, Rutan and Ron Blair rounding out the top five. Brett Mann was sixth, with Ryan Grubaugh, Bobby Clark, Gregg Dalman and Kyle Patrick completing the top ten.

Mann, Blair and Fast won the heat race events. Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz Results:
