PORTLAND, Mich. -- Dustin Daggett opened his points lead up to over one hundred points over J.R. Stewart on Saturday with his win at Thunderbird Speedway during the Sprints On Dirt main event. Making it four wins on the 2004 season, Daggett put on a great show in Muskegon, taking the lead on lap fourteen and holding it all the way to Victory Lane.

"The battle with Tim Norman was fun. I had to drive a heck of a race to win," said Daggett on Saturday from Victory Lane.

Driving a Dowker powered Maxim Chassis, Daggett won his heat, then crossed the line in the feature ahead of Norman, Dave Fox, and Steve Irwin. The 2003 Sprints On Dirt Champion has been showing the class and the talent of a champion.

Preparing for the 2004 King of Michigan, Daggett hopes to become the first three-time King of Michigan champion. Currently, he is tied with Kyle Sauder of Ohio with two wins apiece.

Winning five heat races and three feature events at Hartford last year, it is easy to see why he enjoys it so much. Daggett has always ran strong at Hartford, and admittedly it is one of his favorite tracks.

"I love the big half mile. The Dowker has always been so good there, and I hope to continue my success."

With one more victory, Daggett will move up to tie Brian Tyler for fifth on the list of all-time Sprints on Dirt feature winners. Daggett will be in the top five with such names as Hank Lower and Gary Fedewa.

The Sprints on Dirt King of Michigan is scheduled for Friday, July 2. You can visit www.dustindaggett.com for all of the news and results.
