Darren Miller scored his third straight NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Late Model feature win at the Dubuque Speedway on Sunday August 19th, his fourth for the season on the high banked 3/8 mile clay oval. 

Miller became the fifth and final leader of the event following a spate of early yellow flags, snatching the point away from Mark Curwen following a lap five caution.  Lap six brought out the final yellow, providing Denny Eckrich with an opportunity to challenge for the lead, hounding Miller high and low until the pair began racing through lapped traffic on the fifteenth circuit.  Miller's low line around the track proved to be the faster route as he stretched out his lead and was able to notch his third consecutive feature win.  Eckrich held on to second at the checkers while Mark Merfeld bested points leader Gary Webb for the third spot. Clint Hines improved his fourteenth place starting spot to round out the top five. 

Ron Barker took home a the time-shortened Modified win, scoring his fourth feature win of the season.  Many cautions dotted the race early, forcing officials to call the race on the thirteenth lap.  Jerry Miles led early before surrendering the top spot to Barker following a lap three restart.  Ryan Dolan kept the points battle tight by posting a runner-up finish ahead of Scott Nesteby, Sean Rupp and Miles.  Rookie Dan Welp took home the Pro Stock feature from the outside front row, dominating the fifteen lap event after defending his leader status only once when Ty Kleiner and Jeff Tharp dove underneath to make it three wide as the cars entered the third turn following a lap seven restart.  Jeff Valentine benefited from the fight to take over the second spot at the checkers, ahead of Jeff Tharp, Rick Brokus and Brian Culbertson.  Larry Benn topped the Hobby Stock action, holding off Jim Turpin's late race charge.   Jeff Rienert, Ed McIntyre and Duane Ahmann rounded out the top five.  Kelly Welter topped Brad Strang and Chad Hallahan in Fun Car action. 

Racing action continues at the Dubuque Speedway as "Rumble on the River" enters it's last two weeks of competition of the season.  Hot Laps are scheduled for 6 pm with racing to follow.  For more information, contact Simmons Promotions at 563-744-3620 or online at www.simmonspromotionsinc.com
