On Sunday the weekend comes to close with the second appearance for the ASCS SOD series at the Eldora Speedway in New Weston, Ohio. Last year the ASCS SOD series debuted at the Eldora with Darren Long taking the feature victory.

Dustin Daggett leads the series into the Ohio tour winning the first two feature events of the 2009 season. Defending 2008 ASCS SOD champion Brett Mann, former champion Dain Naida, and Tim Norman chase Daggett into Ohio looking for another title while Gregg Dalman, Ryan Grubaugh, Tim Champlin, and Robert Huisken all are in the top 10 in the point standings, looking for their first ASCS SOD championship.
