PETERSEN MEDIA- Competing with the new NSL 360ci series over the weekend in Park City, KS, Parker Price-Miller was pleased the speed his car had as he recorded finishes of 13th and fifth.
“We had really good speed during both nights of action, and I am confident this team will win some races this year,” Price-Miller said. “We had a little bit of bad luck in heat races on Friday night, but Saturday night I was really pleased with how the night went.”
Checking in at the 81 Speedway on Friday night, Price Miller lined his Agee Motorsports machine up in the fourth row of his heat race before working his way up to the fifth spot. With a car getting out of shape in front of him, the Kokomo, IN driver veered off the racing surface to avoid contact, and with no caution coming out he would go to the tail end of the field. Showing speed, Price-Miller would fight his way back up to finish in the fifth spot.
Using the qualifier format, ‘The Law Firm’ lined up third in his qualifier and he battled for the lead, the leader would get out of shape and he would again take evasive action to avoid contact. Falling back to sixth, PPM would fight back to finish in the third spot and earn a spot in the feature event.
On a track that already rubber down when the race started, Price-Miller’s 15th starting spot wasn’t desirable, but the youngster was able to pick up a few positions as he finished in the 13th spot.
Hoping for some better luck on Saturday night, Price Miller lined up fifth in his heat race, and he made some big moves to challenge for the heat race lead a caution would negate his passes and he would end up having to repeat his efforts as he finished in the second spot.
Qualifier action saw Price-Miller line the FlyingAG/Royal Life Centers/360 Yield Center entry up in the fifth spot, and he would get into fourth on the start and take a few laps to get into third. Once he made the pass, he quickly got into second and reeled in the race leader, Brian Brown.
Unable to get by Brown after erasing a large lead, Price-Miller’s second place finish would put him third in the points for the night, which would line him up in the second row of the ‘A’ Main event.
Admittedly not getting a great start, Price-Miller would fall back to the sixth spot before he started battling with Brown as they fought for the fifth spot. Going back and forth on a track that was on the verge of taking rubber again.
Able to get into the fifth spot, the rubber would start to go down, and the young Indiana driver would get in line and ride out the rest of the race as he closed his weekend out with a fifth place finish.
“If it doesn’t take rubber on Saturday I really feel like we contend for a podium or even a win,” Price-Miller said. “We had a really good car speed all weekend long, and I can’t thank my guys enough for their hard work.”
Price-Miller and his team would like to thank FlyingAG, Royal Life Centers, 360 Yield Center, Pfister, Encirca, Valvoline, Townline Variety, Indy Race Parts, and Agee Farms for their support in 2016
2016 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts- 9, Wins- 0, Top 5’s- 1, Top 10’s- 1
