Naida Shows His Dirt Skills


OWENDALE, Mich. — With his young son watching in the stands, Dain Naida won Saturday’s Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt feature at Michigan’s Owen-dale Speedway.

Naida started second and held the lead through several late-race restarts to win the 25-lap feature, his first victory in ASCS SoD competition this season and second ASCS triumph overall this year.

“This is the first time my son has ever been at the track when I won a race,” said Naida while holding his son Darren. “My crew chief Dan McCarron made all of the right calls and the car was really hooked up in the feature.”

Louie Carufel, Davey Brown, Robert Huisken and Tim Champlin filled the top five.

The finish:
Dain Naida, Louie Carufel, Davey Brown, Robert Huisken, Tim Champlin, Ryan Grubaugh, Jim Goetgeluck, Gavin Hunyady, Ben Rutan, Tank Brakenberry, Jim Lingar, Chris Popanz, Ryan Davis, Marques Huffer, Gregg Dalman, Ralph Brakenberry.
