Montieth, of Phoenixville, earned $3,500 in a car owned by Hanover’s Jerry Parrish. “We needed that starting position,” Montieth said. “The car was excellent. That was one of the best cars I’ve had for a day show on a slick racetrack.”.

Saturday turned out to be a great day for TeamXXX in PA.  Montieth's victory was followed up by a hard charging Adam Wilt who finished the race challenging for 2nd, but ran out of laps to finish 3rd.  Doug Esh made his debut in the Kinard Trucking #30 a good one, and come home 5th.
