ASCS Sprints on Dirt Open North vs. South Shootout with Ohio Double

TULSA, Okla. (June 9, 2008) -- The four-race North vs. South Shootout pitting the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz up against the EFI-NRA Sprint Invaders begins with a pair of Ohio events this weekend.

On Friday night, the ASCS Sprints and Dirt and NRA square off at Lima's Limaland Motorsports Park. And then on Saturday night, it's off to the high banks of Rossburg's Eldora Speedway for Round Two of the North vs. South Shootout.

After this weekend's action, the final two legs of the North vs. South Shootout shift to Michigan, with Quincy's Butler Motor Speedway hosting Round Three on Saturday night, June 21, and then Lake Odessa's I-96 Speedway hosting the final round seven nights later.

Bidding for a fourth ASCS Sprints on Dirt championship, Warsaw, Indiana's Tim Norman leads the way into this weekend's Ohio action with a meager six-point lead over Grand Ledge, MI, shoe Gregg Dalman, who posted his first series win of the season this past weekend.

Another two points back in third is Goshen, Indiana's Brett Mann, with Jerome, Michigan's Ben Rutan just twelve points off the lead pace in fourth. Dain Nadia of Belleville, MI, enters this weekend's action ranked fifth in ASCS Sprints on Dirt points, with the balance of the top ten including Ryan Grubaugh (St. Johns, MI), Joe Bares (Traverse City, MI), Gary Fast (Kalkaska, MI), Aaron Shaffer and John Gall.

Both nights of racing action are slated to fire off at 7:30 p.m.
