FREMONT, Ohio - After having won at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio Friday, Fremont's Jamie Miller made it a clean sweep of the JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series presented by Engine Pro, dominating the 25-lap feature at Fremont Speedway Saturday, June 16. Miller has won three features - Attica, Limaland and now Fremont - in the last three weeks (last week's events were lost to rain) along with a runner-up finish two weeks ago at Fremont.
"We've been fast right out of the box this year. This race car is probably the best one I've ever been in. We made all the right calls tonight. We've been real fortunate hitting the right set-ups with the track conditions. I have to thank Ryan French and his wife Angie for giving me the opportunity to drive this car. They've been great to work with and a lot of fun. I want to thank Rich Farmer and the crew at the track for giving us a great surface, Jon Horn for the FAST deal and all the fans that come out and support us," Miller said beside the Sonic Hauling, Fostoria Modd Shop, Phil Rister Racing, NAPA of Attica, Reedtown Tavern, Branham Builders, Crown Battery, Avon by Angie, Sparting Underground backed machine.
Miller came into the FAST weekend just 16 points behind John Ivy in the series standings. Ivy finished second Friday at Limaland but blew the engine in his machine coming to the checkers Saturday in his heat. The crew quickly loaded up and headed for their nearby shop for an engine change. Ivy came back to finish fourth at Fremont.
Miller and Tyler Street brought the field to green for the 25-lap Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 sprint A-main with Miller quickly establishing himself as the driver to beat, pulling out to a three second lead within three laps over Kyle Capodice, Street, Dustin Rall, Bobby Clark and John Ivy.
A caution for Matt Ferrell on lap 9 wiped out Miller's huge advantage but once the green reappeared Miller quickly built his lead back to over three seconds. Rall brought out the caution on lap 15, again cancelling Miller's big lead over Capodice, Street, Clark, Ivy, Brandon Moore and 13th starter Steve Rando. On the ensuing restart Street blasted around Capodice but could not reel in Miller who took the checkers over three seconds ahead of Street. Capodice, Ivy and Moore rounded out the top five.
The JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series presented by Engine Pro will be back in action Friday, June 29 at Attica Raceway Park and Saturday, June 30 at Fremont Speedway.
