The Jason Miller Race Team took advantage of the perfect weather and went for the $5,000 to win purse. Driver Jason Miller immediately took the lead on the first lap of the heat race and never looked back. “This guaranteed us a start in the main event,” said Crew Chief Chris Andrews. “Next for us was the Cash Dash which determined the top 8 starting positions.”

The top two finishers from each of the four heats were included in the Cash Dash. Miller started in 4th position and by the time the checkered flag fell on lap 6 he moved up to 2nd place. That position meant he would start on the outside of the front row for the main event.

When the green flag dropped, Miller slipped back to 3rd place. There were several cautions during the first 15 laps. “On lap 15 of the 50 lap main, Jason restarted in 4th place,” said Andrews. “The race stayed green for the remainder of the race and Jason started moving toward the front.”

On lap 38 Miller moved into 2nd place. “With only 12 laps remaining it looked like there was an insurmountable gap between him and the leader,” said Andrews. “Jason put on a charge that no one thought he would be able to finish. With the laps ticking down Jason got up to the bumper of the leader at lap 48.”

Miller pulled under the leader going into the final laps and it was a drag race down the backstretch. As both cars came out of turn 4 to take the white flag, Jason pulled into the lead and just had to hold on for one more lap. Miller took the checkered flag by a car length for the biggest win of his career.

“We are starting to wrap up our season,” said Andrews. “We run from April through October and we had a very exciting and fun year. None of it is possible without the support of our sponsors, including K&N.”

The Jason Miller Race Team uses K&N air filter, part number E-3750, K&N air filter wrap, part number E-3750PL and K&N oil filter, part number HP-3002. “Our engine builder pulls our motor out every year,” said Andrews. “He is always amazed at how clean our motors look. K&N air filters give us excellent filtration and protect our engines. We especially like the K&N oil filters. They are so easy to take off.”

The Jason Miller Race Team will be back in action this weekend, either at the Rumble by the Lake event at Hesston Speedway in Hesston, Pennsylvania or at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
