ELMA, Wash. -- Scott Miller won another late race USRA Modified feature at the Grays Harbor Raceway to win his third main event of the season and the only driver to win more than once in the division. The Shelton chauffer drove his Blue Bear Park/Blondie’s Restaurant #26 entry to victory lane leading the most laps and holding off second place by the narrow margin of 0.036 seconds.

Rookie Kyler Moore of Seabeck driving the D&C Competition Engines/Williams Family Salsa #14K led early from his pole starting position in the beginning stages. Scott Miller would overtake him on lap six to become the new leader and shortly after that pressure would come from Zack Simpson of Hoquiam looking for his first win of the season. The Jacknut Apparel #12 would stay in stride with Miller for much of the race until mechanical problems occurred around lap twenty-four.

A green-white-checkered scenario would occur in the last stages of the race and Scott Miller found himself holding back a charge of a very fast Craig Moore in the D&C Competition Engines/Williams Family Salsa #M14 from Seabeck. The two former champions battled one another only for the struggle to be intervened by a caution.

The final restart would both have the white and green flag presented simultaneously and once again seen Craig Moore but the pressure on. In the final turns Moore drove his car into the corner hard and made a move underneath Scott Miller to almost overtake him. Miller would stay on the throttle and barely beat out Moore for the win in another USRA Modified thriller at the Elma 3/8 mile oval.

Craig Moore would finish respectively in second while Joe German of Aberdeen in the Power Train Application/CCS Industrial Services #75X was third. The balance of the top five consisted of Steve Signal of Olympia finishing in fourth in his J.D. Fabrication/Evergreen Valley Tractor #47 and Kyler Moore in fifth. German was quick time at 17.310 seconds with Craig Moore and Zack Simpson winning the heat races.

The USRA Modifieds return to the Grays Harbor Raceway this coming Saturday on June 9th. For More information log on to track’s official website www.graysharborraceway.com.
