Gavin Miller Masters SSMC’s KKM Challenge Night One Win with POWRi Outlaw Micros

Belleville, IL. (9/7/23) Gavin Miller would advance five positions early then lead the final twenty-three laps to win the KKM Challenge at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex with the POWRi Outlaw Micro League presented by Engler Machine & Tool on Preliminary Night One to claim his inaugural seasonal league victory.

Entering a stout field of fifty-six entries in the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro division, Gavin Miller would clock the quickest qualifying time with a 12.517-second lap. Heat race winners would include Tyler Kuykendall, Peter Smith, Jaxon Bishop, Jett Hayes, Corbin Rueschenberg, and Aiden Purdue with Jaxon Bishop, Steven Snyder Jr., Braden Chiaramonte, and Jett Hayes each claiming qualifier victories as Kenton Brewer and Kale Drake would earn the semi-feature wins.

Flying onto the track for Preliminary Night feature racing would see high point qualifier Steven Snyder Jr. and outside front-row contender Jaxon Bishop leading the field to green as Steven Snyder Jr. would hold the front of the field for the first five circuits around Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex as a remarkable test of driving skills would be displayed behind the front-running few.

Early feature racing action would find Gavin Miller overtaking for the lead on lap three with Peter Smith, Steven Snyder Jr., Chelby Hinton, and Jett Hayes maintaining solid showings while battling intently inside the running top-five.

Restarting from a mid-race caution on lap twelve would witness Gavin Miller establishing another great run at the front of the field as Steven Snyder Jr., Aiden Purdue, Johnny Boland, and Jett Hayes raced inside the top-five as the laps began to click away at a rapid rate with action aplenty throughout the tight pack of drivers.

Stretching into a commanding lead, Gavin Miller would appear to be a mission by checking out on the field as Steven Snyder Jr. and Aiden Purdue would swap sliders on both ends of the speedway for the runner-up position as a caution would wave to restack the field for a late-race restart.

Launching back into green flag action with four laps remaining would witness Gavin Miller hold steady in the prized position to earn his first career POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro feature win as Aiden Purdue would finish second with Steven Snyder Jr. rounding out the final podium placement.

“I have to thank Keith and the team for giving me a great car and to the track for giving us multiple lanes of racing,” said Gavin Miller in the Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex victory lane for Night One of the KKM challenge. Adding, “It took me a couple of laps to get going but once I got into a good rhythm, I knew I had a good shot at the win”.

Maintaining a solid showing all event, Jett Hayes would place fourth as Kale Drake would hard-charge from eighteenth to round out the top-five finishers in the POWRi Outlaw Micro League main event in Preliminary Night One of the KKM Challenge at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex.
