PONTOON BEACH, Ill. – Clayton Miller, of Fredonia, Ky., cruised to his first DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory of the season.
Miller was on a roll throughout Friday night’s event as he cruised to a heat race win and started the feature on the outside pole next to Michael Long. Miller, who has been dominant at Clarksville Speedway this year, showed similar dominance at Tri-City as he jumped out to the lead early and led all 25-laps in the feature.
Long finished second with reigning Summit Modified Nationals champion Mike Harrison in third, Ray Walsh in fourth and Nick Hoffman in fifth.
The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals returns to action on Saturday at Fairbury (Ill.) American Legion Speedway.
