MacCachren then got a little wide at turn four, put it up on the bike, and finally laid it over on its side, ending his charge for the win almost as quickly as he’d began it. This brought out a full course caution, and MacCachren lost a lap while getting turned right side up, before emerging from the hot pits later at a greatly-reduced speed.
On the restart lap, Barron briefly touched Kyle LeDuc and was forced to back out of the throttle near turn two, which allowed Adler to get by and up to third. A fierce race for the final podium spot then ensued between Adler and Barron, but with Adler dramatically over-jumping some big jumps on the penultimate lap, it was Barron who drove smarter to re-take third at turn three.
Barron quickly got away from Adler, and despite his damaged suspension, managed to get right up to Kyle LeDuc’s back bumper by the final corner of the race. Up front, it was Renezeder who held off a few late race charges from Kyle LeDuc to take his ninth win in a row, and his seventh straight this season; both of these marks (nine straight overall, seven straight in the same season) are series records.
Kyle LeDuc still had a good race, especially considering how he rolled and did substantial damage to his truck in qualifying this morning, as well as the fact that he’s been hit by food poisoning this weekend. Barron picked up a well-earned third place, with Adler taking fourth and Todd LeDuc fifth.
Other winners Saturday at Miller Motorsports Park included Rob MacCachren (Pro 2), R.J. Anderson (Pro Lite), Steven Greinke (Pro Buggy), Brock Heger (Modified Kart), Mason Prater (Junior Kart 1) and Broc Dickerson (Junior Kart 2).
