LEBANON, OH. - Mykindachip made it three wins in four tries since the start of Miami Valley Raceway's second season by winning the $15,500 Open Pace in 1:54.3 on Saturday (February 7).

In each of the three victories, driver Kayne Kauffman has left the wings of the gate alertly with the six-year-old son of Art's Chip, allowed a single adversary to clear to the front, then retakes the lead just past the quarter and successfully plays catch-me-if-you-can to the wire.

Sent off as a prohibitive 2-5 favorite over a 'good' track, Mykindachip watched Cam B Zipper (Chris Page) sweep by just before the :27 opening quarter, then Kauffman retook command through fractions of :56.4 and 1:25.3 before a :29 final panel sealed the deal. Rockin Finish (Brent Holland) raced gamely first-up on the outside to finish a lapped-on second with Cam B Zipper holding firm for third.

It was the 25th career triumph for Mykindachip and increased his lifetime bounty to $408,107. He is owned by Carl Atley and trained by Danny Dubeansky.

Driver Josh Sutton enjoyed quite a night, winning six of the first 11 races to move into a strong third in the local dash standings after 25 nights of the 89-night meet. With three races remaining on the Saturday night program, defending champion Kayne Kauffman and former national dash champion Dan Noble were deadlocked for first place with 49 victories apiece. Sutton, who won the recent Dayton Raceway dash title, gained considerably with his stellar Saturday night. His win total was 44 at presstime.

Racing resumes Sunday afternoon with a 3:00 PM post time.
