ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (June 17, 2006) -- Oregon's Danny Horner scored his first career American Sprint Car Series feature win by topping Saturday night's 25-lap ASCS Rocky Mountain Region feature event at Sweetwater Speedway.

Horner paced the field the rest of the way in the non-stop affair, with current series point leader Patrick Bourke taking the runner-up position. Jeremy McCune claimed the show position, with Dustin Hall and Hernandez rounding out the top five.
Former series champion Keith Rauch crossed the stripe sixth, with Greg Schaefer, Eric Miller, rookie contender Ricky Montgomery and Scott Milan completing the top ten.
