Joel Miller tests for Andersen Indy lights team

Hesperia, CA (November 2, 2008) -- Joel Miller got his first taste of an Indy Lights car yesterday at Sebring with Andersen Racing. After going to the teams shop in Palmetto, FL to do his seat fit, Joel met with Walt Preston and Mike Reggio on Wednesday to go over data before the test.

The morning sessions went well with Joel learning the characteristics of the new car. He was able to work with Michael Zimicki as a driver coach which helped him bridge the gap from the Star Mazda car to the Indy Lights car. "The car is a lot different than I expected. With the weight and the amount of power under your right foot it makes a driver be really patient," commented Miller. Even though the Sebring short course had low rubber Miller was able to keep pace with the other driver testing during that day.

Afterwards Joel commented, "I am pleased on how things went today being my first time in a car of this size. It was a huge learning curve that I had to learn, and now I have that in mind for future opportunities."

"I have to thank Dan Andersen for giving me the chance to drive his car. It was a great day in the Indy Lights car," Miller said. As for next season, Miller's plans remain open but with a focus of moving forward.
