PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of his USA vs. WA Speedweek Championship, Parker Price-Miller made the trip back to the United States to take part in the Chili Bowl Nationals where he worked his way to the ‘C’ Main event on Saturday night.
“Something about the building just seems to add pressure and make me nervous, and fortunately we were able to have a really good run in our “B” on Wednesday night and get into the ‘A’, but a part failure put us a little further back that we hoped we would be on Saturday.”
Taking to the Tulsa Expo Raceway Wednesday night looking to lock into Saturday night’s big show, Price-Miller would get things underway by advancing from fourth to third in heat race action.
Good enough to work into a qualifier, PPM would find himself in the fourth row and needing to put together a good run if he wanted to lock directly into the preliminary night feature event. Unable to get going, a ninth place finish would put the Kokomo, IN product deep in one of the night’s twin ‘B’ Main events.
From his 10th starting position, PPM had his elbows up as he worked around the ¼ mile raceway. Passing cars at will, the hard charger would get by some stiff competition as he worked his way to a second place finish and punched his ticket into the 25-lap feature event.
Lining up in the 19th spot, Price-Miller’s night would come to an early end as a part failure would cause him to head back to his pit area pre maturely as he would be credited with a 24th place finish.
Buried in a Saturday night ‘D’ Main, Price-Miller would take the green flag from the 14th starting position where he would need to make it inside the Top-Six to keep his Saturday going.
Just as he did in the Wednesday night ‘B’, Price-Miller continued to pick off cars left and right as he drover a very determined race. Getting into sixth, Price-Miller would grab a couple of insurance spots as his fourth place finish moved him into the night show.
Following opening ceremonies, PPM would roll off from the 18th starting spot with the MAVTV cameras rolling again needing to make his way inside the Top-Six to continue on.
The Destiny Motorsports driver again didn’t back down as he continued to move forward on the tight confines of the Tulsa Expo Raceway. Working up to 10th, PPM would see his Chili Bowl come to an end as 10th would not be enough to get him into the semi.
“We definitely gave it all we had on Saturday night, and it was a bummer to come up short, but I have to thank everyone for all of their hard work all week long with all of the cars that raced out of our camp,” Parker Price Miller added.
Price-Miller and his team would like to thank 360 Yield, Dupont, Pioneer, FlyingAG, Agee Farms, Encirca, Chalk Stix, Bell Helmets, and PPM Titanium for their support.
BY THE NUMBERS: Starts: 4, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 2, Top-10’s: 2.
ON TAP: PPM will head back to Australia to take part in the Kings Challenge in Mt. Gambier on Thursday night before taking part in the Grand Annual Sprint Car Classic Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night.
