NORMAN STORMS ASCS SOD VICTORY LANE AT THE IONIA FREE FAIR

IONIA, Mich. (July 17, 2009) - Tim Norman picked a great opportunity to win his first Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP feature event win of the 2009 season. Norman won the coveted main event during the Ionia Free Fair in Ionia, Michigan.

Norman topped Dustin Daggett on the monster half-mile oval at Ionia by leading every lap in his self-built chassis powered by a Gaerte Engine.

"Its great to win at the fair, I really enjoy this race track," said Norman, a three time SOD champion. "It's a real throwback to the early days of the sport."

Norman and Robert Huisken started on the front row for the 25-lap feature event. Norman took the lead being chased immediately by defending Ionia feature winner Grubaugh and Daggett. Daggett then disposed of Grubaugh and set out after Norman for the lead.

Just as Norman would catch up to the tail end of the field a caution would appear. Daggett tried furiously for a way into the lead, but Norman's car was too strong off the corners to gain enough advantage.

At the checkered flag Norman won by a car length over Daggett, Grubaugh, Steve Irwin, and Brett Mann.

The point standings were shook up when Gregg Dalman suffered a flat tire while running in the top ten and was not able to make it on the track for the restart. With his fifth place finish Mann recaptured the point lead.
