Jeremy Miller, of Gettysburg, Pa, worked his way through the field from the 16th position to take the lead on the 37th lap, then pulled away to win the 39th running of the 50-lap Johnny Roberts Memorial at Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday night.

"We have run second four times down here and a lot of the times we ran second we came from the back. Gary (Stuhler), he kinda kicked our butt the last time we were here," said Miller in Victory Lane after winning $2,500 and his second Roberts Memorial.

"We tried some new stuff on the car tonight. It was my shot, so my butt was kinda on the line and I had to get up on the wheel a little bit. ... To be honest, it is normally the better car that gets through traffic better, it is not always the better driver. I just had a car tonight that I could turn on a dime and drive off."
