Traver and Miller Return to BGB Motorsports for 2006
(Daytona Beach, FL-January 3, 2006) BGB Motorsports announced today that Tim Traver of Del Mar, CA and Mikel Miller of Monterey, CA will return in the #83 entry for 2006. The two however will debut a newly dressed Porsche 996 carrying the SimpleNet.com flag.
Traver and Miller joined for 2 races under the BGB canopy during 2005 at Mid Ohio and Phoenix. Prior to this they had been running a 3.4 liter Porsche but they fell in love with the newly acquired 3.6 liter BGB 996. After Phoenix they knew they had to come back for more.
Both Mikel Miller and Tim Traver come to sports cars and Grand Am Cup from the land of open wheels. The two met over 5 years ago while Miller was instructing at Skip Barber. They became friends and then adversaries as they competed against each other in various Skip Barber series races. Miller then went on to compete in Toyota Atlantic as Traver continued to develop his craft. Lately Traver has been a contender for championships in the Western Region for the Barber Dodge Regional Series though. They both enjoyed their inaugural season in Grand Am Cup and they've adapted to the Porsche quite well. They enjoy the endurance format and the level of competition that Grand Am Cup has to offer.
The two will be well looked after as they have both the support of BGB Motorsports and SimpleNet.com. BGB team director John Tecce had more to add:
"I am excited about the #83 car. Tim and Mikel are great guys and will be competitive. I know that Mikel is itching to get back in the car and take some time off of work with his BurgerLifestyle.com venture. I'm also pleased that we were finally able to put a partnership together with SimpleNet.com. That relationship would not have been made possible without the introduction from Tim. I know that everyone will be content."
BGB Motorsports will be preparing for the 2006 season at the Rolex Daytona Test Days in early January, with an eye towards the opening race of the season, the Daytona Grand Am Cup 200 on Friday, January 27th.
