The No. 158 Miller Racing Ford Mustang Boss 302R, co-driven by team principal Roger Miller and Ian James, is now sponsored by Total Care Auto in addition to the Larry H. Miller Dealerships, the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School and Miller Motorsports Park. The car is prepared and crewed by Dempsey Racing.

Total Care Auto (TCA) is a Utah-based company that provides finance and insurance products for automotive dealerships and provides training to dealership personnel. For over 30 years, TCA has helped auto dealerships in the western United States reach their finance and insurance goals.

“We are thrilled to be the primary sponsor of Miller Racing,” said Robb Enger, General Manager of Total Care Auto. “We were looking for ways to grow our business, and we think that working with Miller Racing and the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge will help us increase our brand awareness and provide some terrific business-to-business opportunities. We’re really looking forward to the season!”

The Continental Sports Car Challenge Series season kicks off, as always, at the legendary Daytona International Speedway as the support race for the 51st annual Rolex 24 at Daytona. The 12-turn, 3.56-mile road course utilizes the high-banked superspeedway in addition to a road-course section in the oval’s infield. With the high-speed bankings and the technical infield, both aerodynamics and handling will be at a premium.

“It seems like forever since we’ve been racing!” said Miller. “I am so looking forward to getting back to Daytona and getting the 2013 season under way. With a full year under our belts, our learning curve will be much less steep and we look forward to a very productive season. We very much appreciate Total Care Auto signing on as the team sponsor, and it will be a privilege to represent them. It’s great to have Ian back as co-driver and reassuring to know that Dempsey Racing will be providing us with well- prepared and safe cars.”

“I am very excited about the 2013 season, and thrilled to have Total Care Auto onboard as our primary sponsor,” said James. “We had some great momentum at the end of last season, and I believe Roger and I will be stronger this year with some important changes in the team and the benefit of having a season under our belts. I am confident that our TCA Mustang will be at the sharp end of a super-competitive grid.”
