DAGGETT DOMINATES ASCS SPRINTS ON DIRT AT HARTFORD

HARTFORD, Mich. (May 11, 2007) -- Dustin Daggett won his second straight Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz feature event in dominating style, starting on the pole and leading all 25 laps of Friday night's feature at Hartford Speedway Park aboard the Gaerte-powered Mott Motorsports No. 2m Maxim. "It's really fun to run a non-stop race like that when your car is handling as good as mine was," said Daggett in victory lane. "I really need to thank Phil Mott for giving me a chance to drive his car".

By virtue of winning the first heat race, Daggett earned the pole position and immediately took the lead. Meanwhile, the battle raged for second behind them with Ron Blair, Phil Gressman, Darren Long, and Mike Dussel. Eventually, Blair dropped back as Gressman, Long, and Dussel raced through lapped traffic. As the event unfolded, Tim Norman and Brett Mann also joined the battle.

There was no doubt about the race for the lead however, as Daggett lapped up to the sixth position at the checkered flag over Gressman, Long, Dussel, and Mann.

Daggett, Blair, and Long won heat race events.
