Holmes Nabs First 360 Sprint Car Victory


ALGER, Wash. – Tanner Holmes, 17, won his first feature in a 360 sprint car with a victory Thursday in the Budweiser 360 division at Skagit Speedway.

Scott Miller and Tyler Sundstrom joined Holmes as winners on the night, with the racing broadcast live via SPEED SPORT TV affiliate Skagit Speedway TV.

After setting quick time, Holmes would roll a zero for the invert and after advancing through his heat race, sat on the pole for the main event. Setting the early pace, Holmes was trailed closely by Trey Starks as the pair rapidly approached lapped traffic.

On lap 15 Starks threw a massive slider at Holmes that didn’t stick, resulting in Starks flipping and resetting the field. With Garen Linder now hot on his heels, Holmes took off again and cut through slower to take the main event win ahead of Linder and Eric Fisher.

Scott Miller would lead all but one of the laps in the Skagit Aggregates Modifieds main event for his first Skagit Speedway win. Miller briefly lost the lead to Tom Sweatman on lap five, but Sweatman would bobble and spin in turn one, giving the lead right back to Miller.

Miller endured multiple restarts and a challenge late from Craig Moore to secure the win, relegating Moore to runner up. Sweatman moved back up the through the field to finish third.

Tyler Sundstrom made his first Skagit Speedway appearance pay off by winning the Outlaw Tuner feature. Sundstrom drove past Zach Dalrymple on lap three and was unchallenged the rest of the way in taking the win. Rick Young held off Dalrymple in the battle for second.
