Asphalt veteran Crafton rallies late to win on the dirt at Eldora
Asphalt veteran Crafton rallies late to win on the dirt at Eldora

The Eldora Dirt Derby, looking more like a demolition derby in the early going, rallied with a strong finish. Matt Crafton, who bought a modified to get more experience on dirt tracks, held off Stewart Friesen and Chase Briscoe on a restart with 10 laps to go for his first win in 27 races.

Miamisburg football: Top 7 players in Vikings history

Miamisburg football has it going with Holland Field, a new 6,000-seat signature stadium on campus and a current streak of four straight postseasons. All that coincides with a throwback wing-T offense and a knockout defense since Steve Channell became the Vikings’ head coach. But the boys in blue have a ways to go match win streak amassed by the...
