PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing aboard the Bruce Griffith No. 17 machine over the weekend in Texas, Parker Price-Miller had a nice debut as he took on the ASCS Gulf South Region at the Battleground Speedway and the Golden Triangle Raceway.
“I was really happy with how much speed we had in our first weekend together,” Price-Miller said. “I have to thank everyone associated with the team for the opportunity they have provided me.”
Friday night at the Battleground Speedway, Price-Miller lined up in the fifth spot during his heat race, and was on the go early. Working up to the second spot, contact got Price-Miller’s No. 17 machine out of shape, and another car finished him off, as he finished in the sixth spot, and was forced into the B main.
Lining up in the third row of the B, Price-Miller got off to a slow start, as he couldn’t seem to get moving forward, and it looked as if his night would come to a close. Searching around the speedway, he took a liking to the top, as his machine came alive and he worked his way forward to finish in the second spot and transfer to the feature event.
Gridding the field from the 18th starting spot, Price-Miller continued to use the high side of the speedway as he raced his way towards the Top-Five. Getting up to the seventh spot, Price-Miller went to get around the driver in the sixth spot, but Price-Miller ran out of real estate, and had all four wheels on the fence, and somehow managed to save it from disaster. Gathering his machine up, Price-Miller would finish 14th.
Heading to the Golden Triangle Raceway on Saturday night, the Kokomo, IN driver lined up second in his heat race, and had a racecar that was just a little to tight, and he would end up finishing second, though he earned a spot in the feature event.
Rolling off in the ninth spot, Price-Miller had a great start to the race as he surged up to the fourth spot, but the red flag flew before a lap was complete, and his start was negated.
Under a very long red flag, Price-Miller’s right-rear lost a few pounds of air, and when the race restarted, he had a handful as he bicycled in the first corner. Able to adapt to the extremely tight car with the nearly flat right-rear, Price-Miller would clip an infield barrier halfway through the race, and his night would come to a close.
“Our weekend ended up a bad note, but it looks like we are going to do some more racing together,” Price-Miller said. “Again, I just want to thank Bruce Griffith, and everyone on this team for this opportunity.”
Price-Miller and his team would like to thank PPM Titanium Products, Indy Race Parts, Keizer Wheels, CSI Shocks, Select Equipment, Wesmar Racing Engines, Esslinger, and Triple X Race Components for their continued support.
