Jeremy Miller Makes It a Clean Sweep in Ernie Jones Memorial at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex.

 

                MARKLEYSBURG, PA (August 4, 2012) Gettysburg’s Jeremy Miller made it a clean sweep in winning the 22-lap, $2200 to win, Ernie Jones Memorial for the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic Super Late Models.  Miller set fast time, won his heat, the dash and then led all 22 laps to score his first feature win of the season.  Miller earned $2644 for his winning effort.  Also picking up wins were Bobby Cossell and Mike Lewis (High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Late Models), Denny Perigo (Modifieds), Todd Dennis (Krause Electric Street Stocks), Kenny Burkholder (Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers) and Steve Settle (Newt’s York Bar Roadrunners).  The big event was sponsored by Bobby Lake Motorsports, High Gear Speed Shop Chuck Harper Racing, Touchdown City Motors, Stone House Restaurant, Newt’s York Bar, Three Mules Welding, Mort’s Graphics, Roy Anderson, Denise Hollidge, Hoosier Tire, Lias Tire American Racer, Arsenberger Trucking and Butch Hunt Ford.

                Although he led all 22 laps, Jeremy Miller didn’t have any time to relax in the 22 lap Ernie Jones Memorial.  Heat winner Miller won the dash and earned the pole starting spot.  Miller out dragged Jared Hawkins into turn one at the drop of the green. Miller hugged the inside as Hawkins rode the rim lap after lap trying to make the pass before breaking on lap eight and putting the #37 pit side.  On the restart Miller took off but could not shake David Williams.  Williams challenged Miller relentlessly and looked like he was setting him up for the winning pass.  As they crossed the line on lap 17 Williams charged into turn one and jumped the cushion with a flat tire sending him into the wall and ending his great run.  When the green dropped Tim Senic was now on Miller’s tail.  Senic, who came from ninth, pressured Miller to the checker.  After the drivers took the white flag on lap 21 the whole field dropped to the bottom of the track and let Scott Rhodes pass them and take the honorary win for Ernie Jones. Rhodes’ car was painted up and renumbered 22 to resemble one of Ernie’s cars. Senic was credited with second followed by Mason Zeigler, Devin Friese, Bob Gordon, Mike Lupfer, Ron Delano, Jr., Scott Rhodes, Danny Mitchell and Billy Holbert (from 23rd).  Heats paying $222 to win each for the 33 car field were won by Miller, Williams, Hawkins and Bob Gordon.  Charlie Schaffer won the B-Main and received a free American Racer Tire.

                Bobby Cossell held off a stout field to win the 20-lap High Gear Speed Shop feature.  Cossell ended a two year dry spell at Roaring Knob to pickup his first win of the season. Louie Krushansky, Mike Lewis and John Over all took a shot but came up short as the Connellsville driver was not to be denied.  Over took second ahead of Lewis, Ryan Montgomery, Louie Krushansky, Robbie Scott, Troy Shields, Steve Beatty, Butch Lambert (from 17th) and Ron Parrish.  Robbie Scott, Over and Krushansky won heats for the 21 cars on hand.

                In a make up feature from July 14, Mike Lewis of Oakland, MD parked in victory lane for the first time this season in the High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Late Models. Lewis led the first five laps when Nolan Dalton passed him. Lewis didn’t give up and chased Dalton until he went back out front on lap 12.  At the checker Lewis was the winner over Russell Baird, Jr., Dalton, Troy Shields, Louie Krushansky, Darren Henderson, Jeff Compton, Michael Lake, Vince Masi, Jr., and John Cain.

                Stoystown’s Denny Perigo made it win #5 in the 15-lap Modified feature.  Vic Vandergrift took the lead from Jonathan Taylor on lap seven before he broke and went to the pits.  Perigo chased down Vandergrift and shot into the lead on lap ten pulling away.  Nick Cramer, Denny Nakutis, Matt Chenoweth, Bruce Dreistadt, Vandergrift, Jonathan Taylor, Nick Wilson, Larry Atha and Bryson Sanders filled out the field. Taylor and Cramer were heat winners.

                Heat winners Todd Dennis and Bob Nelson battled all 15-laps of the Krause Electric Street Stock feature. When the checker flew it was Dennis ending a two month dry spell in victory lane for his fourth win of the season. Behind Dennis and Nelson were Jim Bendishaw, Jr., Joe Kelley, Marty Spade, Jr., EJ Rozak, Jason Gibbs, Jim Byers, Barry Faris and Michael Duritsky.  Qualifying heats were won by Nelson and Dennis.

                The 12-lap Ft. Necessity Chargers found Mill Run’s Kenny Burkholder winning his fourth checker of the year. Bradley Nesline was the early leader before giving up the number one spot to Burkholder. Cody Colflesh came home second over Kyle Burkholder, Justin Howell, JT Baird, Mark Peck (Jenkins 44), Shawn Smith, CJ Nicola, Eric Miller and Rob Varner.  Kenny Burkholder and Baird claimed heat win.

                West Leisenring’s Steve Settle passed Mark Seiler on lap two and raced off to his fifth Newt’s York Bar Roadrunner feature win. Paul Koffler, Jr., Seiler, Jarred Barclay, Cindy Rhodes, Michael McDonald, Todd Detrick, David Friend, Jr., Allen Fortney and Ed Detrick were the top ten. Heats went to Rhodes and Seiler.

                Coming up Saturday, August 11 is the return of Stinger Monster Truck Show.  Joining Stinger on the card is the High Gear Speed Shop FASTRAK Late Models, Modifieds, Krause Electric Street Stocks, Ft. Necessity Garage Chargers and the Newt’s York Bar Roadrunners.  The July 14 make-up features for the Roadrunners and Modifieds will start off the show. The Super Late Model have the night off.  A Powder Puff Derby for the girls will also be made-up from last week's rain-out.
