What won the race: Winning a late-race duel over Dave Hess Jr. and Max Blair on the bottom, Jared Miley of Pittsburgh, Pa., soared to the $3,000 Steel City Stampede victory at Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night. Miley snuck ahead of Hess Jr. on the final corner as the leader slipped over the turn four cushion.
Quotable: “We were just kind of riding there and you know them couple of cautions came out towards the end and we were able to use them to our advantage on the restart, one time on the high side and one time on the bottom in (turns) one and two,” said Miley. “We just kinda went where everybody else didn’t and it paid off there at the end.”
