FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – Seven years ago Parker Price Miller won his first 410 sprint car feature at Fremont Speedway and followed that up with his first career win with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 a week later. Saturday, the Kokomo, Indiana driver, who is being treated for a type of Non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, had a pep talk from hall of famer and his former crew chief Rick Ferkel who told him to be thankful for the victories in his young life. The pep talk from the hall of fame driver worked as Price Miller took the lead with just eight laps to go on night two of the 40th Annual Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires and drove to the $10,000 pay day on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night at Fremont.

“Seven years is too damn long I can tell you that. My first ever 410 win was with Rick Ferkel here in 2015 and then the next week we won our first All Star race together at Wayne County. Just happy to be here. I have to thank Kevin Osmolski…no one knows this in the stands but earlier today when we were changing motors he took a pretty hard hit to the head. If it were me or anyone else we probably would have went to the hospital. He had a pretty big gash but he manned up and made the car good for us. Sam, Jim Bob, Carson, Kathy and Mike, Mike McGhee and Associates, XYZ Machining, Indy Race Parts, Winters, Slade, AL Smith…everyone that makes this possible….Maxim Chassis, Fisher Racing Engines…man this thing was throttling great tonight, This is probably one of my most proud wins. I was really patient, stuck the bottom, stayed committed down there, didn’t let anything else bother me and just kept trucking. I’m really proud of this one and will remember it forever,” said Price Miller

Gibsonburg, Ohio’s Craig Mintz, a former Fremont track champion, took the lead from Chris Andrews with 15 laps to go, surrendered the lead to Price Miller with eight laps left and had two shots at Price Miller on two lat restarts, settled for second.

“Second sucks. We come here to win races but to run second to Parker…that’s a really good team. My team busted their butts…I apologize I couldn’t beat him but they were really stoked and any time I can get those guys happy and get my sponsors happy and put on a show for you guys…that’s what we are here for. I was good in the middle but just couldn’t get by a few lapped cars. That’s the bad part about leading… you don’t know where anyone is at and Parker snuck by me and that was all she wrote,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, KS Sales and Service, Modern Woodman of America, Design Graphics Group backed #09.

Current All Star point leader and defending speedweek champion Tyler Courtney put a bad couple of races behind him with a third place finish.

“To come here and statistically one of our worst tracks so to come here and get better and run third on a pretty slick Fremont like we are used to is encouraging. Congrats to Parker and that team. They’ve been busting their tails and have had a sort of up and down season like us. It’s good to have our NOS Energy Drink car going in the right direction and hopefully have a great rest of the week,” said Courtney.

Fremont’s Jamie Miller took the lead with eight laps to go in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature from race long leader Ben Clapp and survived two cautions with just two laps to go to claim his third division win of 2022 and fourth at Fremont this season as he also owns a 305 sprint win. The victory is the 34th of his career at the track.

“This thing is just so easy to drive anyone could win in it,” said Miller beside his Fostoria Mod Shop backed #4M.

Chris Andrews lead the first 20 laps of the 35 lap All Star A-main before Mintz took control for six laps when Price Miller made his move to the front. A green, white, checkered finish was necessary when a caution flew on lap 3r. Price Miller hit his marks and drove to the win over Mintz, Courtney, Cap Henry and Chris Windom.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action for night #3 of Ohio Sprint Speedweek Sunday, June 12 with the 305 sprints joining in the fun.
