Jack Miller Claims Nostalgia Checkers At Brewerton

BREWERTON, NY – The Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour returned to the D Shaped Demon this past Friday where Schoharie, NY’s Jack Miller remained unbeaten with his third feature win in three appearances in the series going back to last year.

Points leader Joe August Jr. of Brewerton, NY would blast into the lead at the drop of Thomas Hodge green flag and looked strong in the early going. Miller would start 7th via the DMNT handicap system and was slowly picking off cars for the first five laps. On lap 9 Miller would run high through three and four and sweep by August at the flagstand. He would go on cruise control for the remainder of the 20 lap affair taking his first ever victory in his first ever appearance at Brewerton. August would take the runner up honors and gain five points on John West of Constantia, NY who would run a strong third. Brockville, Ontario’s Matt Barbour would claim fourth after a terrific battle with George Valenti of Kirkville, NY. Both racers making their first appearance of the season.
