Willie Milliken Masters Tar Heel 100 Sweep at Fayetteville Motor Speedway
Brian Shirley battles for a second place finish

WoOLMS PR
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (April 30) - Former Hope Mills, N.C. resident Willie Milliken has logged thousands of laps at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. But the 50 laps he led during Saturday night's World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series Tarheel 100 met something more to him.

"We have a good piece," said Milliken about his No. 1M MJ Price Construction Co./ Longhorn Chassis car. "We don't get to showcase it all the time. [The win] was just getting on the gas, the car would take it and it would go."

This win was Milliken's seventh late model start ever - his first with the Outlaws. He takes home not only the $10,000 purse, but also the pleasure of finishing first in each of his events. Milliken was the Fast Timer of the night (16.740), won his heat race, pulled the No. 1 on the redraw and led every lap of the A-Main.

Brian Shirley, who finished runner-up to Milliken, said there was no stopping him. Shirley used the two-car-lengths between him and Milliken to remain in the lower groove until Milliken made a mistake late in the race; it was not the case here.

"I don't know the guy who won, but congratulations to him," Shirley said. "I know how cool it is to win a race this big."

Shirley favored the lower groove throughout the race, but secured second-place on Lap 17 when he battled side-by-side with Earl Pearson Jr.'s No. 1P Dunn Benson Motorsports/ Longhorn Chassis car from the middle groove of the track on Turn 1.

"I was lucky just to duck down and get by Jr.," Shirley said. "Racing like that is really tough. It's nerve-racking. You're fighting side-by-side for the same position. I was glad when we went single-file."

When the 25-car field began to run single-file, Shirley waited for the time to make his move into first place. But, Milliken maintained a consistent distance away from Shirley, beating the No. 3s Bob Cullen Racing, LLC/ Longhorn Chassis machine by a 1.184 margin.

Rounding-out the podium was Earl Pearson Jr., who spent the majority of the race in a battle with Shirley. Pearson said he was "glad to be in front of the standing room only crowd," battling for the win.

"Milliken did a great job getting out front, and he never made a mistake," Pearson said. "Me and Shirley got together on Turn 1 on the restart and once we went single-file, that's all we had."

Unlike Milliken, Shirley and Pearson said they do not get to compete at Fayetteville Motor Speedway as often. But the full-capacity crowds coupled with the fast racing conditions make this stop worth looking forward to on the Outlaws series schedule.

The World of Outlaws will travel to Ponderosa Speedway (5/6) and Smoky Mountain Speedway (5/7) next weekend.
