Daggett Ready to Run With the Outlaws and SOD
PORTLAND, Mich -- Coming off of the SOD/NRA Challenge at the Butler Battlegrounds, Dustin Daggett is ready to face off with the World of Outlaws' "Mean Fifteen" at Hartford Speedway Park on Friday.
Following a disappointing weekend at Ionia and Butler, Daggett is preparing his Dowker-powered Maxim chassis for the big half-mile of Hartford. Daggett definitely knows his way around Hartford, as he is the two-time King of Michigan champion.
With five heat race wins and three feature event victories with the Sprints On Dirt group in 2003, Daggett Racing dominated at the half mile. Prior to that, Daggett had two wins in each of the two previous seasons at Hartford, bringing the career total up to seven wins at the track. Also in 2003, Daggett charged to a top five finish with his 360 motor against the 410's.
On Saturday, Daggett will be downsizing his motor to run with the Sprints On Dirt group at Merritt Speedway near Traverse City, Michigan. "I really enjoy running at Merritt," said Daggett from their Portland, Michigan based race shop. "The track is always in great shape, and the facilities are wonderful."
There is no doubt that Daggett can run well on the dry-slick tracks that Michigan is famous for, but he has always run well at the tacky track in northern Michigan. "A big plus for Merritt is that their track is one of the only truly tacky tracks that we have in Michigan," commented Daggett.
Currently, Daggett is leading the Sprints On Dirt points standings over J.R. Stewart, Tim Norman, and rookie Nick Mulheim. You can get more information on Dustin Daggett from www.dustindaggett.com
