Daggett Captures the Checkered Flag at Tri-City
07/19/2013 (Auburn MI) Clements Contracting of Bay City partnered with the Tri-City Motor Speedway on a hot Friday evening to provide fun filled night of sprint car racing along with three support divisions. With 80 competitors ready to race and a lightning show surrounding the track, it was a great setting for the test of speed and endurance.
Sprints on Dirt (SOD) mastered a tough slick racing surface to put on an exciting show as #2m Dustin Daggett weaved his way through lapped traffic to extend his reign as the driver with the most wins in SOD history. The top five were Daggett, #49t Gregg Dalmann, #19 Brett Mann,
#31 Andy Teunnessen, and #10s Chris Jones. Heats were captured by Daggett, Teunnessen, and Dalmann.
Main Street Seed and Supply IMCA driver #4s Toby Steele led the opening four laps of their 20 lap feature. It was a short-lived lead as 10th place starter and point leader #20 A.J. Ward took to the high side and made the pass that would give him a lead he would never relinquish. #72 Terry Gittens, #42 Craig Vance, #14 Chris Barton, #7d Myron Deyoung were the top five finishers. #776k Ken Zeigler and #02 Brody Bowser won their heat races.
With six laps remaining in the Elgin Pro Stock Feature #71 Timmy Near made the move on #93 of John Robbins, who was held up in lapped traffic, to pick up his third feature in a row, Robbins would finish in the second spot and was followed by #01 Randy Radabaugh, #m65 Rick Spencer, and #99 Rick Beauchamp. Heat races were captured by Near and Mularz.
#3 Mitch Clements, #7d Brenten Deyoung, #1k John Krause, and #34r Jerry Light won preliminary events to get a spot in the Auburn Bar and Grill Street Stock Division. With five laps into the feature, the rains came and postponed the remainder of the event. This feature will be the first event of next Friday’s show with Krause leading.
