Darren Miller seemed destined for the runner up spot Saturday night but a strange incident set him up for the biggest win of his RaceSaver career. Kyle Smith was all set for a weekend sweep as he drew the pole position for the event and led every lap.
Except the last one.
On the final circuit as Smith drove into the final turn an incident coming out of turn 4 blocked the track. Smith entered the turn on the high side with traffic below and had no time or opening to make it through. Miller was just far enough behind that he was able to make a last second maneuver to avoid contact and later went on to grab the one lap dash for the win. Miller earned $1200 for the victory which included $400 in bonuses based on Years with RaceSaver and races run in 2018. Zach Newlin. Austin bishop and Jonathan Jones rounded out the top 5.
Former winner Jeff Miller Jr. came home second followed by Zach Newlin Austin Bishop and Jonathan Jones.
Justin Clark traveled from Ohio and picked up a 7th place finish earning the longest traveler bonus for the top 10 and the top 20 netting him an additional $300. 52 cars were on hand for the event
