LIMA, Ohio - Jamie Miller continued his fantastic season with his ninth overall win and sixth JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series Presented by Engine Pro victory at Limaland Motorsports Park Friday, Aug. 3 with an exciting last lap pass.
On the final lap on the quarter mile bullring leader Kyle Peters got hung on the outside wall down the back stretch allowing Miller to get by and take his second victory of the year at Limaland aboard his Sonic Hauling, Fostoria Mod Shop, Phil Rister Racing, NAPA of Attica, Reedtown Tavern, Branham Builders, Crown Battery, Avon by Angie, Sparting Underground backed machine. The victory gives Miller a huge point advantage in the JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series Presented by Engine Pro standings heading into a double-header weekend for the 2nd Annual Great Lakes Dirt Nationals at Mansfield Motor Speedway, Friday and Saturday Aug. 10 and 11.
"That was a good race for the fans. When Peters got around me on the outside I was like man I better move up there and try that and I did and it worked and I was able to get around Luke (Griffith) and run Peters down and get around him on the last lap. We got better at the end of the race. The motor stumbled on that restart and Peters got around the outside of me and I had to rethink what I was doing and regroup and get it back together and had enough laps to get back to the front," said Miller. "I want to thank Ryan French and his wife Angie for putting me in this car. We've been really good all year.
Luke Griffith and 2015 FAST champion Bobby Clark led the field to green for the 25 lap feature with Griffith gaining the early advantage. Fifth starting Miller worked his way into the runner-up spot by the third lap and began to stalk Griffith. Tyler Street would stop on lap nine with front end damage and on the restart Miller's motor stumbled allowing third starting Peters to charge into second. Peters grabbed the lead on lap 12 and seemed to be on his way to his first sprint car victory but Miller moved up a groove and closed on the top two.
With five laps to Miller got around Griffith, setting up the final lap excitement. Peters scored another second with Griffith third, Alvin Roepke, who won a few weeks ago at Limaland, and Clark rounding out the top five.
