Miller and Brown Share Winners Honors in Special Race Night

Hudson, North Carolina (October 27, 2007 - The 50 lap ProCup Expo race saw 10 cars take the green.  16 year old Megan Reitenour started on the pole, by way of inversion, and quickly checked out on the field for the first 10 laps.  15 year old Ryan Miller, in the Lonnie Rush prepared car, was the Pole Winner and started 4th based on the inversion.  Miller tracked Reitenour down and passed her on lap 15.  However, two laps later, the roles reversed and Reitenour regained the lead.  She continued to lead until lap 41 when she spun while attempting to hold off the hard charging Miller.  That set up a 9 lap dash for the finish.  Miller was hounded by Nascar National Champion, Dexter Canipe Sr. and Larry Wilcox.  The two raced door to door behind Miller.  At the finish, Miller picked up his first win followed by Wilcox, Canipe, and Reitenour.  It was one of the best races of the year at Tri-County and showcased the potential of this new and exciting series.   


This past Saturday night, drivers from four states converged to compete in the Enduro 150.  The race featured 150 laps of caution free racing with a five minute break at lap 75.  A total of 28 cars took the green flag.  On the pole for the race was Kevin Eby of Lenior, NC.  Kevin led the first several laps until being overtaken by Donnie Buckner and passenger, Randall Lash.  Buckner paces the field for the next 20 laps lapping many of the other competitors.  David Hawkins of Asheville stayed with Buckner and was able to overtake him for the lead around lap 25.  The duo continued to work their way through traffic while swapping the lead back and forth.  On lap 40, Hawkins attempted to split a lap car and wasn’t very lucky.  He went for a spin and was able to re-fire the car and stay on the lead lap.  On lap 62, Buckner continued to lead followed by Kevin Brown of Kannapolis, NC in the Herbie painted car.  Buckner was attempting to pass competitor Andy Miller of Asheville.  The two tangled sending Buckner hard into the inside wall and ending his night.  Miller was also unlucky in the altercation and was knocked unconscious resulting in a red flag.  Fortunately all drivers were ok and the safety workers did an excellent job tending to Andy.   On the restart, Kevin Brown became the new leader.  He led for the next 13 laps until the halfway break. 


At the break, Brown was the leader followed by Hawkins, Buckner, Nikita Treadwell from Wellford, SC.  Brown continued to lead and built a comfortable lead over Hawkins who lost power steering at the start of the race and was battling handling conditions.  Hawkins would retire from the event on lap 120 with engine problems.  With Hawkins and Buckner out of the picture, that left Treadwell to battle Brown for the win.  This was Treadwell’s first ever asphalt race.  He normally race at Friendship Speedway in SC.  Treadwell lost a lap in the first portion of the race as he learned the new surface.  However, in the second segment, he kept Brown in his sights for the entire second segment and challenged him throughout trying to get his lap back.  17 year old Bobby Mitchem made his way to third with a pass for position in the closing laps.  His car was painted like the late Dale Earnhardt Sr.  In the end, it was not to be, Kevin Brown and Herbie were the victors, followed by Nikita Treadwell and young Bobby Mitchem of Trinity, NC.  


The promoters wish to thank all of the Enduro competitors.  We had cars from four tracks with their own version of “enduro”.  In the future, we will continue to work to make the rules more consistent and hopefully have one set of rules for all four tracks.  Stay posted to the website for information about another possible race on Nov. 17th and early in 2008.
