Chase Miller Looks Ahead to 2006 Schedule as Dodge Driver
18-Year-Old to Race in ARCA for Dodge Driver Development Program
CANTON, GA (February 3, 2006) -- Chase Miller only had the backing to run three ARCA RE/MAX Series events in 2005, but he made those races count. He led at Gateway, was close to the front before running out of gas at Nashville and was as high as second at Michigan.
Those performances were good enough to earn Miller a spot with the Dodge Driver Development program, where he will race in six ARCA RE/MAX Series events behind the wheel of the #4 Dodge fielded by Cunningham Motorsports.
Now just imagine what the 18-year-old driver can do in double the number of races that he ran last year."
"I'm very excited," said Miller. "It was definitely an honor to be chosen for this opportunity. I feel very privileged to be able to work with Dodge and hopefully we will be able to continue and have a long lasting relationship. I have a great opportunity to run well. There are some great races on my schedule.
Those races start with the April 15th event at Nashville Superspeedway and include Pocono races, the July Gateway event and the August race at The Milwaukee Mile. Miller's season will conclude on October 8th at Talladega Superspeedway.
"I'm excited to be able to go back to Gateway and Nashville again. I think that we'll do really well there. I'm excited to go to Pocono because that looks like a really fun track. Talladega is going to be my first Superspeedway race, so I'm just thrilled about that one too."
Miller will also be at the track when he isn't racing, as fellow Dodge young guns A.J. Foyt, IV, and Scott Lagasse, Jr., wheel the #4 car. Miller knows that by paying attention in the pits, he will gain an education that will help him as a driver.
"I'm going to Daytona next week with the team and I'm sure that I will go to pretty much all of the races that they go to. It's to build the relationship and to stay in touch with everybody. Just being around the people and see what they are doing and why they are doing it is a chance to learn."
Miller has also been around the Cunningham Motorsports shops in North Carolina, learning more about the cars that he will race under the watchful and experienced eye of team manager Eddie Sharp.
"I've been up there hanging out and getting to know everyone. I'll be up there more working on the cars too."
