Hess & Ferree Dominate Lernerville

Through all the cautions and restarts, former Three-Time Track Champion Alex Ferree never wavered and led all 30 laps on the way to his 21st career Late Model feature win; tying his father Ed for 7th all time. Car owner Joe Corado and Integra Shocks guru Brian Daugherty joined an exuberant Alex Ferree in Sheetz Victory Lane to celebrate the $2,500 payday.

Jared Miley avoided all the carnage between his 11th starting position and the checkered flag to score a second place finish. Miley quickly made his way to third by mid-race and made a handful of slidejob attempts at Ferree’s lead, but never could make one stick to score his third win of the season. Uncle Sam 30 winner Russell King returned to the Action Track and scored a podium finish behind Ferree and Miley in third.

While Hess and Ferree lead all 30 and 25 laps of their respective features, the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman 20-lap feature saw multiple lead changes between Mike Miller, AJ Flick, Joe Kelley and eventually Mike Miller again who scored his second win of the season. Miller drew the pole and was flanked on the grid by Budweiser Points co-leader AJ Flick. Miller took the early lead on the same top groove the Late Models used to the front, but Flick dove under and past Miller into the lead in turns three and four to take the lead on lap three.

Flick would lead the next five circuits until All Time division wins leader Super Joe Kelley used the same bottom line through three & four to wrest the lead from the third-generation star. But Miller, whose car stubbornly wouldn’t launch on restarts, continued to pound the top of the turns and eventually drove around Kelley exiting turn two and down the back straightaway. With an open track and green flag conditions, Miller motored to his second win of the season, while Kelley and Flick were left to battle for second.

Kelley held of Flick for second at the checkered flag, while Flick’s co-leader in the Budweiser Points Corey McPherson charged to a fourth place finish from 12th on the grid. Jim Fosnaught used a last lap, last turn pass of Brett McDonald to score another top five finish.
