Becoming the 34th driver to lay claim to victory with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, Utah’s Chauncey Filler finally took home the winner’s check at Sweetwater Speedway on Saturday night.

Racing to the green from the front row, Filler chased third starting, Jeremy McCune, the opening four revolutions before McCune’s night was cut short. Unable to avoid the spinning No. 56 of Butch Capshaw who spun in front of the No. 0j, Jeremy was tagged by the No. 88 of Travis Reber, who likewise had nowhere to go. Travis was able to continue.

Taking command of the field, Filler had smoothing sailing until the final lap.

Under siege from the Pirate Motorsports No. 77 of Damon McCune, the run from 11th put the Montana shoe all over Filler for the lead in turns one and two. A drag race off the second turn, the pair split rank into the final two turns with McCune taking the hub. Blocked by a slower car, the move left the top wide open with Filler racing to the line 0.368 seconds ahead of McCune.

Posting his best finish of the season, Shad Petersen placed third with Robert DeHaan and Willie Hernandez, Jr. completing the top five. Zac Taylor in sixth had Randy Dolberg in tow with Mindy McCune coming from 14th to eighth. Mike Manwill crossed ninth with Travis Reber coming back to finish tenth.
