Sarver, PA (July 26, 2013) Mike Lutz has won three Peoples TWP Sprint features in the past five seasons; each has been in a different car.  On Friday night, he jumped into the McMillin #5M and survived a wild night in the division to score the first feature win for a McMillin owned Sprint car at Lernerville since the mid-70s; the driver? Hall of Famer Ted Wise!  Jared Miley checkered his third Precise Late Model feature of the season over Alex Ferree; but Ferree seized the lead in the Budweiser Point Standings.  Dave Murdick notched his first Diehl Mods win of the season after reprising his role of “Double Duty Dave” by piloting Brother-in-law Gary Rankin’s Sprint car; Rankin himself was subbing for Brent Matus.  Mike Miller kept the “M” theme rolling, (Mike, McMillin, Miley, Murdick), by coming from 12th on the grid to score his second straight Pic-A-Part Sportsman feature and third of the season.  Corey McPherson battled Miller for the lead mid-race but faded late due to a flat tire, while AJ Flick raced to a second place finish and the Budweiser Points lead.
