CHICAGO – Chris Dodd earned his first JEGS Allstars win today after defeating Ray Miller III in the final round. Dodd earned the win at Route 66 Raceway in a race decided by less than one thousandth of a second.
The Texas runner kick started his run to the final by using a .020-pack against 2018 championship runner up Mark Grame. After his .012 reaction trailed Randy Beck’s .005 in round two, Dodd successfully got behind at the finish to take the double breakout win.
Miller was stellar in the first two rounds posting .005 and .000 bulbs. After surviving a double breakout race with 2018 Super Gas world champ Devin Isenhower, Miller tangled with Dodd.
While Miller took the starting line advantage, .011 to .022, it would be Dodd collecting the trophy after his 8.908 bettered Miller’s 8.919. The margin of victory was .0002-second or less than one inch.
