Miller Springs on Sweetwater ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Win
ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (August 20, 2005) -- With his sights set on a first series championship, Eric Miller extended his American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region point lead by scoring his second feature win of the season in Saturday night's 25-lap feature at Sweetwater Speedway.
Miller assumed the point when race long leader Nick Haygood came to a halt on the track with engines woes after 16 laps. Miller took full advantage and charged to the checkered flag aboard the Miller Brothers Racing PJM Services/Fab-Tech No. 4.
Miller was chased across the stripe by Jake Pierson, Patrick Bourke, John Jacob and Bob Schaeffer, with Josh Fellows, Jeff Heffner, Scott Milan, Joe Wagner and Cyrus Perme completing the top ten.
Miller extended his series point lead to 40 markers over Gary Taylor and Pierson, who are tied for second. Taylor was dicing with Bryan Jamison for second position when the pair tangled and both flipped after ten rounds, sending both cars pitside.
Miller, Haygood and Taylor topped heat race action.
