(By: Marc Hoegerl)MILEY, YOUNG, AND RUTH JR. BECOME FIRST TIME WINNERS, AS HARVEY CONTINUES HER DOMINANCE AT RACEWAY 7’S FOURTH ANNUAL SEPTEMBER SHOOTOUT.Monroe Center, OH (Sept 11, 2021) Raceway 7 once again showed outstanding success with its marquee annual September Shootout that always brings in some of the biggest regional racers that the Monroe Center Speedplant only gets to see a few times a year, which became a promising night for first time winners.Pittsburgh’s, Jared Miley, after many attempts finally brought home his first ever Raceway 7 Super Late Model feature win, in the 40 lap $5,000 to win special. Once, Econo Mod hotshoe, Nate Young picked up his first ever Whelen Engineering UMP Modified event, pocketing a cool $3,000 in earnings. Gale Ruth Jr. brought home his first ever Raceway 7 RUSH Sprints win in a real crowd pleaser, and Jessica Harvey took home the Sunnyside Farms Transit Mini Stocks Special, in dominating fashion, cashing in on a $350 payday.First up would be the wingless RUSH Sprints. John Mollick, and Chad Ruhlman would bring the field to green. Ruhlman would get the jump at the outset, with Mollick on his heals. Lap 4 would see Ruhlman and Mollick pull even for the top spot. On lap five the race would see an intense three car battle erupt between the two front runners, as well as 6th place starter Gale Ruth Jr. Lap 6 would see the trio go three wide for the lead coming out turn four. Ruth Jr. would finally get around the front runners on lap 8, but would still be part of a three car battle for the next several laps. Ruth Jr. would find a little breathing room just after the halfway point, and would go the rest of the distance maintaing the front spot to capture his first ever Raceway 7 RUSH Sprints victory. Ruhlman, and Mollick would battle it out the entire distance, with Ruhlman taking runner-up honors, Mollick settled for 3rd, Rod George, and Tyler Newhart rounded out the top five.Next up would be the star-studded 24 car field of Whelen Engineering UMP Modifieds for their 30 lap special event. Young Lion, Nate Young would take the point as Mark Osburn’s green flag would be shown. With Young leading a great battle for second was brewing between, Matt Alexander, and the veteran Rich Michael Jr. On lap 7, Michael Jr. would finally muscle his way around Alexander for 2nd. On lap 10, with Young still pulling away from the field, 2021 points champion Joel Watson would take 3rd away from Alexander, and started to run down 2nd place runner Michael Jr. On lap 12 regional favorite Dave Hess Jr. would crack the top five from his 12th place starting position, then take over the 4th on lap 13. Hess’s bid to front wasen’t over as he took over 3rd from Watson on lap 21, then after dogging Michael Jr. for the next 8 laps would finally take over the bridesmade spot with two to go. Young had no problem keeping his distance from the field as he showed his dominance the entire event, weathering a few late race cautions, and the tough competition behind him, as he was not to be denied, bringing home a two second victory over Dave Hess Jr. to pick up his first ever Whelen Engineering UMP Modifieds A-Main, in just a handful of races. Hess Jr., Watson, Michael Jr., and Michael McGee would round out your top five. Braidy Westfall was the winner of the Non-Qualifiers event sponsored by, HBR Trucking.In the nights headliner, the ground pounding Super Late Models would take the track for their 40 lap main event. “The Jet” Jared Miley who is no stranger to the 7/16 of a mile semi-banked clay oval, running many big dollar Super Late races in the past, would show his power as the field would take the green. Chad Wright, and Dave Hess Jr. would engage in a battle for 2nd, as outside pole sitter Matt Lux would fade back into the 4th spot. With Miley sailing in clean air 9th place starter Darrell Bossard would over take Wright, and Hess in a good three car battle for 2nd on lap 10. Bossard and Hess would have a good wheel to wheel battle going on for the next 3 ½ laps until Hess would motor his way around Bossard for 2nd on lap 13. With Miley and Hess pulling away from the field, Wellsburg, West Virginia’s, Corey Conley, after starting 12th would take over 3rd from Bossard on lap 21. Hess tried valiantly during the late stages of the race to catch Miley, but could never muster enough challenge to overtake the Pittsburgh native, as Miley would go on to pick up a convincing victory in his first ever Raceway 7 Super Late Model triumph. Hess settled for 2nd, Corey Conley came home 3rd, Bossard 4th, and 15th-starter Eric Wilson rounded out your top five.In the Nightcap, The Sunnyside Farms Transit Mini Stocks would hit the surface with an added $350 bonus going to the winner. Shawn McBride, and Steve Campbell would bring the 23 car field to green. McBride would lead the first four laps, until 3rd place starter Jessica Harvey would use her signature low line move to over take the leader, Campbell. With Harvey setting her own pace out front, Scott Gill would use a series of outside moves to take the second spot on lap 5. Gill would chase Harvey the remaining 10 laps, but couldn’t get close enough to challenge the 2020, 2021 track champion. Waterfords, Harvey would go on to win her 4th Raceway 7 feature of 2021, and her 8th overall Raceway 7 feature to close out another impressive season. Gill, Campbell, Mike Barr, and John Kish would round out the top five.RUSH WINGLESS SPRINTS (13 Entries)Heat Winners: John Mollick, Chad Ruhlman20 Lap Feature: 1)Gale Ruth Jr. 2)Chad Ruhlman 3)John Mollick 4)Rod George 5)Tyler Newhart 6)Nolan Groves 7)Jarod Larson 8)Shawn Smith 9)Blaze Myers 10)Brian Cressley 11)Brandon Shughart 12)Ricky Tucker 13)Kevin KasermanLap Leaders: Ruhlman(1-7) Ruth Jr.(8-20)UMP MODIFIEDS (37 Entries)Heat Winners: Nate Young, Matt Alexander, Michael McGee, Joel Watson, Casey Bowers, Rich Michael Jr.30 Lap Feature: 1)Nate Young 2)Dave Hess Jr. 3)Joel Watson 4)Rich Michael Jr. 5)Michael McGee 6)Brent Rhebergen 7)Casey Bowers 8)Troy Johnson 9)Steve Rex 10)Mike Potosky 11)Eric Reinwald 12)Mike Kinney 13)Kyle Layton 14)Brandon Grossman 15)Travis Creech 16)Judson Fell 17)Geoff Conn 18)Dan Davies 19)John Boyd 20)Josh McDonald 21)Matt Alexander 22)Justin Carlson 23)Justin Sax 24)Jeff JohnsonLap Leaders: N.
