Dover Ices ASCS Midwest Title with Nebraska Cup Triumph!

EAGLE, Neb. (September 7, 2008) -- Jack Dover put the finishing touches on the American Sprint Car Series Midwest Region championship by charging to victory lane in Eagle Raceway's 25-lap Nebraska Cup finale for the second year in a row.

The 18-year-old Springfield, NE, racer climbed from the tenth starting position to take his fourth ASCS Midwest triumph of the season aboard the Eckley-powered 3D Auto Transport No. 53 Eagle, coasting underneath the checkered flag after his powerplant expired on the final round in its 35th night of duty.

While Dover needed just two laps to shoot from tenth to fourth, polesitter Chad Humston paced the opening handful of circuits before tagging the wall and exiting with damage. Mark Pace assumed the point for a pair of laps before Frank Galusha moved out front.

Dover chased down Galusha for the lead on the 16th circuit and lapped all the way up to seventh place as he notched his seventh overall ASCS feature win of the season. Mike Boston crossed the stripe in the runner-up slot, with Billy Alley taking the show position.

Pace picked up the fourth spot when apparent fourth-runner Frank Galusha failed post-race technical inspection, with Dusty Zomer rounding out the top five.

Don Droud, Jr., Jeff Lowery, Jason Danley, Gene Ackland and Eric Lutz completed the top ten.

Pace, Humston, Trevor Grossenbacher, Natalie Sather and Galusha topped heat race action for the 40-car field, with Jay Russell topping the "C" Main and then Danley winning the "B" Main.

Humston picked up a $500 bonus for winning the Pole Dash.
