TULSA, Okla. (August 18, 2008) -- It's back to the cozy confines of a dirt track this Saturday night as the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz makes its final stop of the season at Michigan's Owendale Speedway.

Saturday's card also marks the seventh round of the MAHLE Clevite Short Track Challenge for the ASCS Sprints on Dirt.

While Brett Mann holds the edge in the series season championship points chase, Gregg Dalman holds the lead in the season's Short Track Challenge standings.

Gunning for his first series title, Mann of Goshen, IN, enters Saturday's action with a meager 14-point lead over Ben Rutan. Dain Naida is 42 points off the lead pace in third, with Ryan Grubaugh and reigning series champion Tim Norman rounding out the top five.

Ranked sixth in overall points, Dalman lead the Short Track Challenge by ten markers over Naida, with Rutan just a dozen points off of Dalman's pace in third. Mann is 20 points out of the lead in the Short Track Challenge, with Ryan Grubaugh rounding out the current top five.

With seven top-fives and eleven top-tens in 15 events thus far in 2008, Mann picked up his lone series win of the season in the July 12 event at Owendale.

Saturday's racing action goes green at 7:30 p.m.

The semi-banked, 0x00bc-mile Owendale Speedway dirt oval is located 2.8 miles east of the flashing light in Owendale, MI, on Sebewaing Road. For more information, contact the track at 989-678-4447.
