Miller Speedway Watermelon Winner 7-24-09

The weekend started with a trip down to Miller Speedway on Friday July 24th.  On the drive, Cameron was hoping Dad would win the watermelon again and Dad was hoping for the trophy.  The heat race was full throttle for 8 laps.  Scott Bintz started 4th and while passing for 2nd blew it off the track coming out of corner 2 and ultimately finished 4th.  In the feature, Scott started 4th row outside.  He was able to pass a car or so every few laps.  With about 5 laps to go, Scott was in second with Lorin Johnson leading.  Scott made a few pass attempts for the lead and came close a few times.  Lorin Johnson won, followed by Scott Bintz and Kevin Bliese.  As is customary in Miller, SD, Scott received a watermelon for 2nd.  Looks like Cameron got his way this time.

On July 25th we were back in Jamestown, ND at the Jamestown Speedway.  With 36 Wissota Midwest Modifieds ready to race.  Scott started outside pole in the 2nd heat with Dustin Strand on pole.  Scott got the lead briefly with a good battle with Stand for a few laps.  Strand moved pasted Scott and won the heat with Scott close behind.  During the feature Scott started 4th row inside next to Strand again.  When the green flag dropped, Scott got a good start and was able to move into 5th pretty quickly.  After several laps Scott was in 4th and a few more he made it to 3rd.  There was a caution with a few laps to go.  On the restart, Scott was able to get beside and attempt to pass Strand for 2nd, but was unable to hold his ground as the race car had a push.   Jason Grimes won followed by Dustin Strand and Scott Bintz.  After the race, we all enjoyed the watermelon from Miller Speedway.
