Miller Wins Floyd Reynolds Memorial as Ossenfort Claims ASCS Rocky Mountain Crown
AZTEC, N.M. (September 19, 2009) -- Randi Miller returned to American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region victory lane for the first time in more than three years by topping Saturday night's season-ending 30th Annual Floyd Reynolds Memorial at Aztec Speedway.
After leading the opening circuit, Miller battled back past newly-crowned ASCS Rocky Mountain Region champion Jake Ossenfort on the fourth round and held on the rest of the way to secure a Rocky Mountain career best 39th feature win and a first for car owner Scott Milan.
Miller survived a late caution to take the checkered flag aboard Milan's USA Performance-powered Scott's Auto No. 4m Maxim, with Friday night winner John Carney II setting for runner-up honors.
Jason Martin claimed the show position, with Joe McCarthy and 16th-starter Kyle Sager rounding out the top five.
Colt Treharn was sixth, with 2008 series champion Derrik Ortega, 17th-starter Kaylene Verville, 18th-starter Kyle McCutcheon and Brett Ream completing the top ten.
Chad Corken, Jake Ossenfort, Martin and Treharn won Saturday night's heat races, with Verville and McCutcheon topping the "B" Mains.
While credited with a 17th place finish after making an early exit in the main event, 17-year-old Jake Ossenfort of Rapid City, SD, finished off the season as the ninth different ASCS Rocky Mountain Region champion in as many years.
