Long Stands Tall In SOD Opener

CRYSTAL, Mich. — Darren Long made the long drive from Elida, Ohio, worthwhile by picking up the feature win to kick off the 2012 Engine Pro ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP season at Crystal Motor Speedway.

Long started on the pole and led every lap en route to his first victory of the season driving his family owned Gaerte powered KPC chassis.

“I knew my motor would take off really well, and the car was driving really well.

On the restarts I was able to pull the wing back to drive off the corner better,” said Long. “I was trying to be real patent through the lapped traffic. I have to thank my guys that work on my team; they are doing a great job.”

Dustin Daggett finished second ahead of Gregg Dalman, Jared Horstman and Ryan Ruhl.

The finish:

Darren Long, Dustin Daggett, Gregg Dalman, Jared Horstman, Ryan Ruhl, Ryan Grubaugh, Mike Daggett, Brett Mann, Keith Dempster, Robert Huisken, Andy Chehowski, Brad Lamberson, Steve Irwin, Andy Teunessen, Greg Wheeler, John Gall, Mike Burns, Ben Rutan, Dain Naida, Marques Huffer.
