ppmiller

PETERSEN MEDIA- Turning in a strong performance during a daunting week of racing known as Ohio Speedweek, Parker Price-Miller would score a trio of Top-Five finishes and then pick up a win in Indiana with the final two Speedweek shows raining out.

“All in all I was very pleased with how this team performed all week long,’ Price-Miller said. “We had some stuff out of our control hinder a couple nights, but we went toe-to-toe with some of the best and really got better as a team.”

Kicking his week off at the Attica Raceway Park, Price-Miller would time in fourth fastest in his group before picking up the win aboard his PPM Titanium Products/Indy Race Parts/Keizer Wheels No. 9p machine.

After winning the Dash, ‘The Law Firm’ would start on the pole of the feature event alongside Dale Blaney. As Blaney got the jump on the Kokomo, IN driver, Price-Miller would continue to challenge him for the stop spot, as find himself up front for a couple laps before falling back to second. The last lap saw Price-Miller make a slight mistake that would see him end his night with a fourth place finish.

Taking to the high-banked Eldora Speedway for Night No. 2, Price-Miller would time in second fastest in his group before finish fifth in his heat race. Being forced into the B main, Price-Miller would finish in the third spot and find himself in the 25th starting spot for the feature event.

Fighting a tight racecar in the feature, Price-Miller was able to stay the course and work his way up to a 15th place finish at ‘The Big E’.

A tough start to the third night of the week at Waynesfield saw Price-Miller time in poorly and ultimately find himself in the C Main after failing to transfer out of his heat race. Forced to take a provisional to get into the feature event, Price-Miller would finish in the 18th spot as the series headed to Wayne’s County the following night.

Price-Miller had a very strong night during the fourth consecutive night of action. After qualifying second in his group and lining up third in his heat, PPM would surge to the lead and pick up the win to earn a spot in the night’s dash.

Lining up fifth in the feature after his fifth place finish in the dash, Price-Miller would take advantage of an early caution to get by James McFadden and Danny Holtgraver to jump into the second spot and chase after Sheldon Haudenschild.

Getting into lapped traffic while running in the second spot, Price-Miller was relentless in his efforts as he looked for the lead lap after lap, by trying countless slide job attempts that he could not make stick.

In the end, Price-Miller would put a couple of bad nights behind him as he finished in the second spot.

Having mechanical issues at the Sharon Speedway in hot laps and prior to the feature event, Price-Miller would eventually not run the feature as he shifted his sights to the Atomic Speedway.

Finishing fourth in his heat race, Price-Miller’s qualifying time was good enough to get him into the dash, where he finished fifth. A big wreck at the start of the feature event was kind to ‘The Law Firm’, as his car was on the front row of the race when the carnage was sorted out and the race was restarted.

Slipping to the second spot to Dale Blaney again, Price Miller would struggle at times early in the race as he battled a loose racecar. As the track eventually started to take rubber, ‘The Law Firm’ was able to find it early and get into the fifth spot where he finished.

The eventual Speedweek finale was brutal for Price-Miller and his team. After getting involved in a heat race wreck, Price-Miller would have to go through the B Main, and having some struggles in the semi, he was forced to take a provisional. Lining up 26th in the feature event, PPM would pick up a few spots and close his Speedweek out with a 20th place finish.

With the final two nights raining out, Price-Miller ended the week 7th overall in points, and moved up to 7th in the season standings. Also with the rainout, Price-Miller would head to the Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN for one final race for the week.

Competing with the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA), ‘The Law Firm’ had very good speed early in the night as he charged from sixth to third in his heat race, and earned a spot in the Dash.

After finishing second in the Dash, PPM would find himself chasing after Hunter Schurenburg in the early stages of the feature event as they leaders soon found themselves in traffic.

Deciding to race above the cushion, Price-Miller was able to make huge speed and took the race lead on the 18th lap, as he then began to feel pressure from a charging Kevin Thomas, Jr.

A late restart saw Price-Miller get challenged for the top spot, but he was able to counter the move and drive to his fifth win of the season.

“It was great to end our week with a hard-fought win” Price-Miller said. “It is a tough week of racing, and I really have to thank everyone who helps us out, and who goes to the track with us night in and night out.”

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.
