Randi Miller Tops ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Billings Prelim
BILLINGS, Mont. (September 17, 2004) - Randi Miller chased down early pacesetter Bill Boyce in Friday night's American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region preliminary feature at Billings Motorsports Park to capture his seventh series triumph of the season.
Starting from the pole position, Boyce outgunned fellow front row starter Miller to take the lead at the drop of the green. Boyce paced the opening 15 rounds with Miller hot on his heels.
Miller went to the high side and raced past Boyce to take command for good on the 16th round. Miller drove Mac White's Carbone-powered Two Dot Tech No. 2d Maxim to the checkered flag, with Boyce settling for second.
A third place finish for Keith Rauch allowed him to close to within just four points of fourth-place finisher Eric Miller, who swapped powerplants after heat race action. Joe Ramaker rounded out the top five in front of Jerry Brey and Phil Dietz. B Feature winner Jeremy Sheaffer raced from 17th to eighth in the feature, with 18th-starter Brent Kronfuss and Josh Ostermiller completing the top ten.
