Auburn, MI — (May 16, 2014) – Gregg Dalman won the Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP feature Friday night at the Tri-City Motor Speedway. Dalman took the lead from Dustin Daggett on the second lap and held on through a mid-race restart to take the victory. The victory was Dalman’s 12th career SOD victory driving his own Kistler powered Maxim chassis.
Daggett got the jump on the initial start and led lap one, but Dalman used the low side of the race track to his advantage to take the lead on lap two. From there Dalman was able to race through slower traffic and open up a lead. After a caution on lap 15 allowed the field to close, Dalman was up to the challenge and pulled away for the victory. Ohio driver Shawn Dancer moved into the running up spot with Daggett filling out the podium. Ryan Ruhl and Brett Mann rounded out the top five.
The Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP series continues Saturday night at the Plymouth Speedway for the Earl Gaerte Classic.
