STATESVIILE, N.C. -- Chase Miller is making his 10th NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the 2008 season on Saturday night at the 2-mile racetrack in Fontana, Calif. Miller is in his second season as a driver for Gillett Evernham Motorsports. The 21-year old Canton, Ga. native is making his first career start at Fontana.

In his two seasons with GEM, Miller has turned in one top-10 finish in 15 starts. His first top-10 came in May of this season at Darlington. Miller has compiled an average starting position of 21.4 and an average finish of 20.5.

Chase Miller:

Talk about racing in the Nationwide Series: "I'm excited to be racing in the Nationwide Series. There are a lot of great drivers and the races are really competitive. It gives me a chance to test my driving skills against some of the best drivers in the business and gives me seat time which at this point in my career is the most important part of my development."

Talk about racing at California: "I've never raced at California, but some of the other drivers told me that it can be a lot of fun. It's a big, wide track, so hopefully I will get a chance to really race hard and have some fun. We are looking for a strong top-five, top-ten performance. It is fun to race with the guys up front and it's also the best way to get experience."

Chassis Info: The No. 9 Ragu Dodge team will use GEM chassis #B23; the same chassis Miller ran as the No. 19 at Lowe's Motor Speeedway in May.
