OWENDALE, Mich. (August 27, 2011) – In front of a capacity crowd at Owendale Speedway, Dain Naida took the checkered flag in the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP main event at the racy 1/4 mile oval.

A field of 21 winged sprint cars made the second appearance for the 2011 season at the fast Michigan oval.

Naida, from Tecumseh, MI, started on the pole and lead all 25 laps of the caution-free main event. A battle developed several times in the race when Dustin Daggett and Ryan Ruhl made several attempts to pass Naida,only to have each attempt halted by excellent defensive driving by the feature winner. The veteran racer was able to capture the $1,200 first prize in exciting fashion after those challenges.

Naida stated, “It’s great getting into victory lane again putting on a show for these great fans, this is a real shot in the arm for our team!” The winner of the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP feature thanked his sponsors including Ohsweken Speedway and car owners Miles Hill and Glenn Styres.

The top ten finishers of the feature race for the Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt Presented by ARP were Naida, Daggett, Ruhl, Gregg Dalman, Brett Mann, Jared Horstman, Andy Chehowski, Troy Chehowski, Gary Fast and Davey Brown.

Heat race wins were captured by Fast, Horstman and Ryan Ruhl. The fast car dash went to Troy Chehowski.
