RANSOMVILLE, NY – It took seven years for Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Parker Price-Miller to secure his second Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event win during a start at Fremont Speedway on June 11, but less than a month later , he was back in victory lane at Ransomville Speedway.
Leading just the final two circuits, a slider through turns one and two following a lap-29 restart sealed the deal for “The Law Firm,” who edged Cap Henry and Chris Windom for a $ 12,000 payday.
Windom was the man in charge when Price-Miller made his winning move, inheriting the lead at the lap 29 restart when race-long leader, Hunter Schuerenberg, cut a tire with the white flag in sight.
Bill Balog was fourth in his Ransomville debut, followed by Wise-Priddy Racing’s Zeb Wise. Windom’s podium result was a best during All Star competition.
“I wasn’t waiting another seven years, I can tell you that,” Parker Price-Miller said. “Honestly, we weren’t the best car here tonight, that’s for sure. We actually lost our right rear shock after the first lap, but even at that I thought we felt OK. Sunshine and Hunter were probably the two best cars. But that’s why you race the whole 30 laps… we were able to take advantage of that late restart. It’s twelve grand and I’m just happy to get this 11 up front. ”
Although in charge for the vast majority of the 30-lap program, Schuerenberg’s campaign at the front of the field was no cake walk. In fact, the Sikeston, Mo., native was forced to dual head-to-head with defending All Star champion Tyler Courtney in close quarters between laps nine and 12.
Unfortunately for Courtney, contact with a lapped car on lap 13 forced the Clauson Marshall Racing entry to the work area; he would return to finish eighth.
