OLATHE, Col. (May 30, 2004) - Defending series champion Randi Miller remained perfect in this year's American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region competition, picking up his third victory in as many events by posting a wire-to-wire victory in Sunday night's 30-lap feature at Thunder Mountain Speedway.
Starting on the pole, Miller got the jump on fellow front row starter Keith Rauch at the drop of the green flag and paced the field all the way. The fast-paced event was interrupted by just one caution, which appeared at the midway point when Brian Jamison tagged the turn one wall.
Miller raced to the checkered flag aboard Mac White's Carbone-powered Two Dot Tech No. 2d Maxim, with Rauch snaring the runner-up slot for the second night in a row. Patrick Bourke claimed the show position, with Nick Haygood and Mike Dreiling rounding out the top five.
Eric Miller crossed the stripe in sixth, with Jeremy Sheaffer, 20th-starter Brett Ream, Jace Pennetta and Jake Pierson completing the top ten.
Pennetta, Sheaffer and Haygood topped heat race action.
