Billings 17-year-old Tyler Cardwell raced to a first-place finish in the 450cc pro modified class Friday night under the lights at the Billings Motorcycle Club.

The 450cc pro modified featured 102 riders and was the opening classification of the 96th annual Miller Lite Great American Championship Pro Hill Climb.

Cardwell, who blazed up the hill in 11.075 seconds, was followed by four-time Great American overall champion Petey Krunich of Castro Valley, Calif., who clocked 11.147 seconds. Magic City rider Dustin McCombs was third in 11.217 seconds.

In the 40-plus pro masters, Pete Krunich -- father of Petey Krunich -- was the champion. The elder Krunich's best time was 13.120 seconds. Veteran Billings rider Ed Taylor was second in 13.647 seconds. Todd Stuart of Morgan, Utah, claimed third with a time of 14.803 seconds. There were 24 riders entered in the 40-plus pro masters class.

The Great American continued Saturday with the 0-700cc exhibition class, the 601cc-open pro altered class, the 450cc side-by-side competition and the overall championship class. Racing was expected to conclude just before midnight Saturday.

On Sunday, the 701cc and up exhibition class featuring 66 riders will start at 10 a.m. and conclude at approximately 3 p.m.
