Daggett Opens ASCS Sprints on Dirt Series With Crystal Victory

T.J. Buffenbarger, Crystal, Mich. (May 5, 2007) -- Dustin Daggett christened his new ride with Mott Motorsports by winning the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz feature event Saturday night at the Crystal Motor Speedway. Daggett started on the pole and led every lap in his Gaerte-powered Maxim chassis.

Daggett took off to an early lead that was slowed early on by cautions for spins by Ryan Ruhl and Nate Bostrum. Daggett was dominant during the feature with only one serious challenge mounted by Ben Rutan after a restart from a red flag when Dain Naida hit the spun car of rookie Jake Stebner. Naida was uninjured.

Rutan's fate was not better as he slammed the turn four wall after racing for position with Tim Norman. Norman then moved into second position for the restart and tried to keep Daggett in sight. Daggett moved into slower traffic on the last lap and did not allow enough time for Norman to take advantage of the slower cars. Norman, Nick Mulheim, Tim Allison from 17th, and Brett Mann from 20th rounded out the top five.

Heat races were won by Bill Johnson, J.R. Stewart, and Dustin Daggett.JThe B-Main was won by Tim Allison.
