DAGGETT MOTORS TO ASCS SPRINTS ON DIRT WIN AT MERRITT

MERRITT, Mich. (August 16, 2008) -- Dustin Daggett completed the season sweep of both Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz feature events at Merritt Speedway by winning Saturday's 25-lap feature event.

Daggett started on the front row and drove away to his sixth ASCS SOD victory of the 2008 season in the Mott Motorsports car.

Daggett and Gregg Dalman started on the front row. Dalman led the first five circuits before Daggett slid underneath him in turn one to take the lead.

On lap seven Ralph Brakenberry flipped hard in turn two. Jim Lingar and Gavin Hunyady were also collected in the incident. All three drivers walked from their cars under their own power, but had to retire from the event.

Daggett led at the restart, but Ryan Grubaugh made a charge through the field. Grubaugh started sixth and moving up to third on lap 15. Eventually Grubaugh utilized a pair of cautions for spins by Ralph Brakenberry to move up to second, but could not catch Daggett. Dalman, Tim Norman, and Dain Naida rounded out the top five.
