Mann and Dalman Lead SOD Point Standings; Can Daggett Continue Domination at I-96?

TULSA, Okla. (June 2, 2009) -- With one weekend off after a three night Memorial Day excursion to Ohio, the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP returns to I-96 Speedway for the second of two visits to the half mile oval in Lake Odessa, Michigan. In addition, Saturday's event is the second round in the Engler Machine and Tool Half Mile Master mini-series.

Defending ASCS SOD champion Brett Mann holds a slim two point lead over Gregg Dalman going into Saturday's program. Both Mann and Dalman had solid Ohio weekends, putting them at the top of the standings at the leading contenders for the championship. Three time ASCS SOD champion Tim Norman is just 12 markers back from Mann and looks to make up ground at I-96. Both Robert Huisken and Ryan Ruhl are making their presence felt in ASCS SOD competition holding down fourth and fifth place in the point standings respectively.

Dustin Daggett will look to continue his domination in ASCS SOD competition. Daggett has three feature victories this season, won the last four ASCS SOD feature events at I-96 and leads the Engler Machine and Tool Half-Mile Master mini-series going into Saturday's event.
