Three-State Flyers: Miller
Takes Second Flyers Win at Natural Bridge
NATURAL BRIDGE, Va. - May 6. Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg, Pa. used an outside move on lap 16 to take the
lead away from D.J. Myers and lead the final 19 laps to claim his second career win with the Three State
Flyers super late model series Saturday at Natural Bridge Speedway. This was just the second race of the 2011 Three
State Flyers season.
D.J. Myers darted out in front of the field with Miller in tow. Myers, coming off not one but two victories the
previous week, looked as if he was going to make it three in a row, but Miller had other ideas. With two and
three-wide battling for position, Miller settled into a groove from the onset and immediately started searching for
a way around Myers.
Meanwhile, all eyes were on Covert, the defending Three State Flyers champion and winner of this race a year ago,
who started 16th in the 25-car field and masterfully worked traffic as he marched his way through the field. Covert
cracked the top ten on just the fourth lap and the top five on lap 15.
As Covert moved forward, Myers and Miller were engaged in their own battle for the lead. Miller found the top
side of the track to his liking and on lap 16, shot past Myers and took command of the race. Covert appeared
to be the only car capable of challenging Miller after he moved into the runner-up spot on lap 31, but it was too
little too late. Miller was long gone and crossed the stripe nearly three seconds ahead of Covert.
