DeVault Goes For Two In Fremont Twin 410 Features

FREMONT, Ohio — Zane DeVault doubled down at Fremont Speedway Presented by Gill Construction on Saturday night. The Plymouth, Ind. driver won both 20-lap 410 sprint features to claim the bonus for a total pay day of $5,000 at The Track That Action Built.

DeVault, aboard the Lane Racing No. 4, took the lead in the first Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature from Brandon Spithaler on lap two and held off a late race challenge from Cole Macedo in lapped traffic to score his first ever Fremont win.

In the second feature DeVault grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and hit his marks perfectly every lap on the bottom to head once again to Beaverdam Fleet Services Victory Lane.

“I’ve been trying to get a win here for awhile and to put that four car back in victory lane…this is like their (the Lane family) second home,” DeVault said. “We thought about putting new tires on after that first feature but my guys grooved and siped the old set and they were perfect.”

After opening the double down night of racing at Fremont with his third win of the season in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks in the first of two features, Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller followed up with his second win of the year in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints.

“The turn two cushion was pretty tricky and I almost gave that away,” said Miller. 

In the first dirt truck feature Miller utilized the high line to pass Dave Golembiewski on the white flag lap and held on for the victory. Miller nearly made it three feature wins in one night – a feat he has accomplished before at Fremont, having won a 305 sprint, a dirt truck and a late model feature win all on the same night at the track a few years ago.

Miller lead the first half of the second truck feature before Dustin Keegan, a former truck track champion, slipped by on the outside. Miller rebounded and was side by side with Keegan coming to the white flag but a caution negated the move. Keegan held off Miller to score his 10th career Fremont win.

“I knew if I didn’t screw up on that last restart I’d be OK. It’s been awhile since we got a win here and this feels great,” said Keegan.

In the second 305 sprint feature, Paul Weaver, who finished second to Miller in the first main event and is a five time and defending Fremont Speedway division champion, Weaver took the lead from Miller on lap two and expertly sliced through traffic to score his 79th career Fremont Speedway win, more than anyone in the history of the track.

“We’ve had terrible luck to start the year with engine gremlins and other stupid stuff happening. Thanks to Bob Hampshire we got the motor figured out and we’re going strong again,” said Weaver.
