Miller takes opener
Track web site - 4/9/2018
Nick Sweigart led all but the final lap of the 305 sprint main, falling victim to an increasingly ragged outside cushion.
Sweigart had Austin Bishop challenging during the first half of the race and then found Jeff Miller in pursuit during the second half.
With a few laps to go Sweigart clouted the outside first turn wall but saved the car and his lead as he appeared headed to a first ever Port Royal win.
But that outside wall bit again, this time as he sailed near it in the third and fourth turns where he ended up riding the wall before losing control and spinning as he headed to the checkers.
This handed the lead to Miller who made good on his fortunes to pick up the win.
Drew Ritchey was second followed by Kyle Smith, Jonathan Jones and Zach Newlin.
Three heats went to Smith, Miller and Dave Grube.

PASS has been hit with more bad news this morning as thoughts and prayers go out to 2014 PASS champion Eric Parker who lost his father last night.
Parker raced with the series from 2011 - 2014 and picked up the PASS Championship, his father was always by his side. Or condolences go out to his family and friends including many friends that the Parkers made while competing with the series.
