Miller Kicks off ASCS Rocky Mountain Title Defense Friday at Black Hills Speedway

TULSA, Okla. (May 11, 2004) - Randi Miller kicks off the defense of his 2003 American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region championship this Friday night at his home track, as the ASCS Rocky Mountain Region opens the 2004 season atop the 3/8-mile Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD.

Miller comes off a stellar 2003 campaign, in which he posted a winning percentage of .500 by winning 12 of 24 ASCS Rocky Mountain Region features aboard Mac White's Carbone-powered Two Dot Tech Maxim. Miller scored 19 top-ten finishes and finished out of the top-ten on only three occasions en route to winning the title by a healthy 193 point margin.

Friday night's stop at Black Hills Speedway marks the first of three events at the Rapid City dirt oval. The series returns on July 9 and September 11.

Miller has raced to victory lane in three of the last four ASCS Rocky Mountain Region events held at Black Hills Speedway, including two of three events in 2003. Only Corey Brink of Sturgis, SD, has been able to top Miller at Black Hills, making it to victory lane last June.

Miller will face plenty of tough competition this weekend, including 2003 Rocky Mountain Region runner-up Eric Miller, 2002 Rocky Mountain Region champion Mike Dreiling, 2003 series Rookie of the Year Jake Pierson, Jace Pennetta, Scott Milan and many more.

Friday night's action is slated to start at 7:30 p.m.

Black Hills Speedway is located three miles south of I-90 Exit 61, then 0.5 miles east on SR 44, then north. For more information, contact the track at 605-393-1552 or 605-393-1392.

The 2004 American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region slate consists of 24 events at 14 different tracks throughout Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota and Wyoming. 123 drivers competed in at least one ASCS Rocky Mountain Region event in 2003.
