BOWMAN: Price-Miller turns in solid weekend

Kokomo teen-ager Parker Price-Miller continued his solid season aboard a full-size midget, garnering a pair of top-10 feature finishes in POWRI Midget action over the weekend.

On Saturday night at the Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill., the Kokomo High School student solidified his bid to garner Rookie of the Year honors by claiming sixth in an event that was captured by Oklahoma sensation Chris Bell.

Zach Daum was second to Bell and Tyler Thomas came home third. A pair of veterans, Andrew Felker and former USAC Honda National Midget Series champion Brad Kuhn, completed the top five. Following Price-Miller in the top-10 were Terry Babb, Hunter Schuerenberg, Colten Cottle and John Campbell.

A night earlier at the Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., Rico Abreu scored a hard-fought win over Bell while two-time USAC National Midget champion Dave Darland advanced to third after starting outside the seventh row. Schuerenberg was fourth and Daum fifth. Price-Miller came home eighth, ahead of such notables as Kuhn (15th) and defending USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series champion Bryan Clauson (16th). The top-10 for Price-Miller was his fourth straight in series competition.


Coleman, Ala., shoe Kevin Thomas Jr. once again was impressive, picking up his series-leading seventh feature win in USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series action Saturday night at the Tri-States Speedway in Haubstadt.

Thomas got around early leader Brady Short on the 27th lap, then never trailed the rest of the way in the 40-lap event to capture the annual running of the Haubstadt Hustler.

Brady Bacon followed Short to the checkered flag to take third while Jon Stanbrough was fourth, just ahead of Kyle Cummins. Clauson was ninth while Kokomo’s Shane Cottle rounded out the top-10 aboard the Epperson Painting/Leer Racing/Infinity Shocks No. 2E. Darland battled mechanical gremlins to limp home 21st while newly crowned Kokomo Speedway track champion Wes McIntyre was 22nd.
