ASCS Sprints on Dirt Set for Weekend Double

TULSA, Okla. (August 26, 2008) -- After a soggy Saturday night this past weekend, it's back to business for the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Victor Reinz with a pair of Michigan events this weekend.

On Friday night, the series contests the eighth and final round of the MAHLE Clevite Short Track Challenge with the lone stop of the season at Winston Speedway in Rothbury, MI.

Then on Saturday night, the series makes its third and final stop of the season at Crystal Motor Speedway.

While Brett Mann holds the edge in the series season championship points chase, Gregg Dalman holds the lead in the season's Short Track Challenge standings.

Gunning for his first series title, Mann of Goshen, IN, enters Saturday's action with a meager 14-point lead over Ben Rutan. Dain Naida is 42 points off the lead pace in third, with Ryan Grubaugh and reigning series champion Tim Norman rounding out the top five.

Ranked sixth in overall points, Dalman lead the Short Track Challenge by ten markers over Naida, with Rutan just a dozen points off of Dalman's pace in third. Mann is 20 points out of the lead in the Short Track Challenge, with Ryan Grubaugh rounding out the current top five.

Rutan topped last year's series stop at Winston Speedway with a dramatic flip across the finish line. Tim Norman and Dustin Daggett have split this year's top honors at Crystal.

Both nights of action are set to get under way at 7:30 p.m.

Winston Speedway is located in Rothbury, MI, off US 31 to the Winston Road Exit, then 0.2 miles west. For more information, contact the track at 231-893-3023.

Crystal Motor Speedway is located in Crystal, MI, 5.5 miles north of SR 57 on Crystal Road, then east on Sidney. For more information, contact the track at 989-235-5200.
