Sprints On Dirt April 28, 2012
Twenty nine sprints made their way to Crystal Motor Speedway for the kick off of the 2012 season for the touring classes. The 2012 season will be a big one for Sprints On Dirt (SOD) series. They have three shows scheduled here, including their co-sanctioned show with the NRA coming up on July 21st.
An early caution slowed the feature for the first time when the 10 of Steve Irwin and the 27 of Brad Lambertson spun entering turn three.
Once the field got going the pole sitter Darren Long led early. The leaders encountered lap traffic and it looked as though Daggett would be able to close the gap. Andy Chehowski brought out the second caution spinning right in front of the leaders Long and Daggett.
Long prevailed over Dagget, leading wire to wire to pick up the checkered flag. Dallman and Horstman finished close behind for second and third.
Four Heats and A Dash
In the first heat, Dustin Daggett took the lead away from Steve Irwin and drove away from the field for his first checked flag of the season.
Greg Dallman and Daren Long see-sawed back and forth for the lead before the 49 of Shawn Dancer hit the wall and brought out the yellow flag. Long held on for the final two laps and was able to drive on to victory lane in the second heat.
It was all Andy Chehowski picking up the heat three win and the
final heat went to the Hoosier Rocket, Brett Mann.
Dain Naida was able to pick up the win in the B main and Brad Lambertson took the four car dash.
