Rob Blair Blasts to $3,000 Victory at the NDRL's ULMS Opener at Mercer 

NDRL Media
Mercer, PA (April 6) A new era for the NDRL's ULMS Racing Series with a familiar face in victory lane as Titusville, PA's Rob Blair paced the field for all 30 circuits to win his tenth career series event and become the all-time wins leader with the NDRL's ULMS series.
Blair and John Garvin Jr. led the talented field to the green flag as Blair shot out to the early lead.  Garvin settled into the second spot with 2010 'Chiller Thriller' winner Mike Knight and 2012 'Chiller Thriller' winner Keith Barbara in tow.
Just four laps in, the events first caution was displayed as two-time NDRL's ULMS Champion Boom Briggs lost the handle of his new yellow 99B Rocket Chassis collecting the always  hard charging Jared Miley and John Mollick.  Miley was unable to continue while Briggs and Mollick rejoined the field.
When action picked up again, Blair again led the field as Knight worked his way under Garvin for second. Dave Hess Jr. also made his way around Garvin to slide into the third spot. With Garvin now in fourth and Barbara following in fifth, the two battled back and forth until the two came together as they exited turn two sending Garvin into a spin. While the field paced under caution, Garvin's frustration became apparent as he made contact with Barbara locking the two cars together.  Garvin was disqualified from the event while Barbara continued to finish fourth.
Blair continued to lead as the race resumed with Knight staying close in second. As the laps ticked away, Blair would stretch his lead at times while Knight would close the gap. The leaders methodically worked their way through traffic while Knight looked for an opening. Knight made a last ditched effort as the two approached the checkered flag but fell .153 seconds short at the line giving Blair the $3,000 win.
Knight came home second as Hess Jr., Barbara, and Ron Davies rounded out the top-five. Chad Valone finished sixth while Sammy Stile, Matt Lux, Brent Rhebergen, and Russ King topped off the top-ten finishers.
Kevin Morehouse claimed the NDRL's UEMS portion of the 'Chiller Thriller' at Mercer Raceway Park after leading the entire distance.  Rich Michael followed in second while Joel Watson, Brent Rhebergen, and Ron Davies completed the top-five. Sixth place was Randy Hall as Carl McKinney, Dave Hess Jr., Vic Vienna, and Nathan Hill rounded out the top-ten.
