YORK HAVEN, PA 9/17/16
Darren Miller started on the pole of Saturday’s 25-lap PASS/ IMCA 305 Sprint car feature at Susquehanna Speedway and dominated the race to capture his first ever win at the track.
Miller, who won earlier this season at Williams Grove Speedway, had to keep fellow front row starter Donnie Hendershot at bay during the entire 25 laps before becoming the fifth different division winner this season.
It took four attempts to get the feature underway as three separate red flags stopped action.
Ken Duke, Jr., the winner of the Labor Day 305 sprint main at the track was the first flip victim while Cale Reigle left the speedway on the ensuing restart. Ryan Stillwaggon would bring out the third red flag. All three drivers walked away uninjured.
With the cars then lined up single file, Miller, of Mount Joy, PA grabbed the lead and never looked back in taking the win over Hendershot, Johnny Martin, one-time winner John Barrnett and Kyle Ganoe with 17th starter Stephanie Dodson finishing sixth ahead of 18th starter Colby Dice, 15th starter Rick Stief, 23rd starter Billy Ney and Geroge Riden.
Heats for the 31 305 Sprints were won by Barnett, Reigle and Hendershot while Dave Grube won the consolation.
Kirby Sites was awarded the win in the 20-lap Xtreme Stock feature after apparent winner Michael Smith’s car failed post race tech. Sites’s win was his second of the year.
Alex Updegraff, who started 12th was second over Brian Rehbein, Cameron Benyou and Ronnie Buck.
Davey Nestor and Howard Williams were heat winners for the 16 car field.
Justin Wagaman made it back to back wins in Road Warrior action as he led all 15 laps to pick up the win over Travis Brown, 11th starting Justin Cardasso, Ricky Weaver and Lee Redman. Wagaman also won the heat race for the 16 cars.
Brett Arndt took the lead from Ryan Greth on lap eight of the 20-lap ARDC Midget feature and rolled to the win. Greth would bring out the yellow on lap 10 when he hit the wall.
Brenden Bright finished second over Alex Bright, Jim Radney and Tommy Kunsman.
Greth and Alex Bright won heats for the 14 ARDC cars.
Dennis Dorosz led all 10 laps of the Mini Van feature to win over Daryl Sipe, Thomas Thompson and Ken Boose.
