BOWMAN: Price-Miller sparkles in Sunshine State

Talk about adding an impressive boost to a driver’s resume.

Kokomo teenager Parker Price-Miller did just that in the 16th running of the King of 360’s last week at the East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Fla.

With a starting field dotted with a who’s who of winged sprint car racing, Miller started the 25-lap feature alongside veteran All-Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaw Danny Smith on the front row.

He paced the star-studded field, leading all 25 laps in just his fifth time aboard a 360 winged sprint car. Chasing the 15-year-old to the checkered flag was another WoO regular, Wayne Johnson, while Smith finished third. Russ Hall and current WoO regular Jason Sides rounded out the top five.

Rico Abreu, who won the midget portion of the 2013 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora, was sixth, former WoO regular Greg Hodnett seventh, Bryan Sebetto eighth, multi-time Knoxville Nationals champion Danny Lasoski was ninth and Jerod Roller 10th. Chad Kemenah, a former All-Star champion and now a regular on the Outlaw tour was 13th, Tim Shaffer, also a former Knoxville Nationals champion, was 14th and Jac Haudenschild 15th. Christopher Bell, the Oklahoma driver who burst onto the scene last season, was 16th.


While Miller was scoring his huge win in Tampa, the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series converged on the Bubba’s Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla., to kick start the 2014 campaign.

In Saturday’s finale, Tony Stewart Racing’s Bryan Clauson looked poised to defend his back-to-back titles in the series, snaring the lead from Justin Grant down the stretch en route to the win aboard his Curb-Agajanian/Chevy Performance No. 20.

Grant led the opening 22 laps before Clauson made the pass for the win on the 23rd circuit. The Noblesville driver held off Grant the remainder of the 30-lap event. Chase Stockon followed the pair to the checkered flag for third with Dave Darland and Robert Ballou completing the top five.
