Millwood dominates Crate Racin' USA field at Senoia Raceway
Tyler Millwood picked up his first win of the 2023 season on Saturday evening at Georgia’s Senoia Raceway.
He wired the Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series in the main event to claim the $3,000 top prize aboard his Millwood Plumbing No. 31 XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model.
“Man, it feels great to get back to Victory Lane. We were close but came up short last year of getting a win, so it’s nice to get that monkey off our back. These Crate Racin’ USA fields are really tough these days, so a win with this series means a lot to us,” Millwood said. “We’ve got a busy week in front of us, and hopefully now that we’ve broken the winless streak, we can grab another couple more ‘W’s’.”
Tyler Millwood returned to the driver’s seat of his Millwood Motorsports No. 31 Crate Late Model to compete with the Crate Racin' USA Dirt Late Model Series at Senoia (Ga.) Raceway on Saturday evening.
With a stout 48-car field in the pit area, Millwood earned a front-row starting position for the A-Main after topping the charts in his stacked qualifying group.
With a $3,000 payday on the line, Tyler set the pace early in the feature event and led flag-to-flag to score his first victory of the 2023 season.
Millwood outran Dylan Knowles, Mark Whitener, Austin Horton, and Cody Haskins to the checkered flag in the 40-lap main event.
