LW MILLER RACE REPORT: CARAWAY
Miller brings home the Speedco/Lucas Oil Chevy in 4th place


After starting 4th in the Spring Classic 150 at Caraway Speedway, LW Miller took the lead at lap 91 and looked to have the strongest car in the field, but a tangle with Brian Loftin battling for first place sent both cars spinning. On lap 120, Todd Szegedy spun behind the leaders in Turn 2. Miller and Loftin, who were first and second respectively, got together in Turn 3 as the caution came out. Miller was able to make it to pit road and continue, but Loftin, had to be towed off the track. Miller restarted in the 12th position and battled back to a solid 4th place finish in the 21 car field. After the first race of the season, Miller sits tied for 3rd in the championship point standings.

No. 36 Speedco/Lucas Oil Key Quotes

Start 4th / Finish 4th / Laps Led 29 / Points 165 / Driver Point Standings Tied 3rd

L.W. Miller on his car..."We had an awesome car and I was happy with how we started because I think we were one of the few teams that didn't test prior to the race."

On the incident with Brian Loftin...."Brian and I were racing hard and I think Brian got into a little speedy dry on the track as it was slick after Ted Christopher's car put down some fluid after his accident. When Brian got loose he came across our car and we got together and both of us slid to the inside wall. I was able to continue, but it was heartbreaking to have a car that good that could have won the race and miss out on a chance to get the win."

On rebounding for a top five finish....."Obviously we are disappointed because we felt we had a car that could win the race, but we'll take this finish and work on our car a little bit more to be ready for the next race here in two weeks."
