It was a warm very windy night at the Miller Central Speedway, where a very good crowd saw 76 cars do battle. The night was sponsored by Agtegra Cooperative of Miller. The strong south wind made for a slick track with lots of spins but the wrecker was only used once.
The features kicked off with the Pump N Pak Pure Stock main. Brenden Rassel started 5th, but with all of the slipping and sliding in front of him he led the first laps and led all the way over Jayden Michaelsohn, Chico McNeil, Damon Hoftiezer and Destrie Morris. It was Brenden’s first feature win at the Miller Central Speedway and his first anywhere since 8/25/12 at Wagner.
The WISSOTA Street Stocks rolled out 21 strong with Spence Pollock starting third but leading all the way over Jodie Michaelson, Broc Stout, Zach Pollock and Andy Rossow. It was Pollock’s first feature win in the Street Stocks and his first feature win since June 30, 2006. His brother Zach won a $700-to-win special in Rapid City Friday night to make it a double for the family.
The WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds were next on the ever more slippery track. Jordan Kienow led the first four laps before sliding off the top of the track in turn three. On the restart Scott Hansen went from third to first and barely held off Adam Brotherton for the win. It was Hansen’s second win at Miller with the first coming on Aug. 18, 2017. Cory Berquist, Brad Kopecky and Dawson Zabel rounded out the top five.
The WISSOTA Super Stocks made a race out of it with Kipp DeGroot leading the first lap, before sliding wide, with Jeremy North taking over. North led four laps before Trevor Nelson went by and won his 11th career feature win over North, Taylor Schmidt, DeGroot and Dale Tomes.
The $2000 to win WISSOTA Late Model feature started with Chad Becker beating Kent Arment from outside pole to lead the first lap. Then Curt Kranz and Jordan Tollakson tangled in turn two, with Tollakson going off on the hook. Arment got the jump on the restart and lead the rest of the way with Becker snapping at his heels all the way. Tyler McDonald, David McDonald and David Carlson rounded out the top five. It was Arment’s eighth Late Model feature win at Miller.
This week will be the Independence Day races, with extra money on the line for the WISSOTA Modifieds. There will be fireworks after the races. Starting time is 7 p.m.
