Travis Miller Joins the Cast of Rookie Hopefuls

Concord, NC--The Northern Division of the Hooters Pro Cup Series added depth to its talent pool today, as it was announced that Travis Miller, of Miller Motorsports, has signed with FASTTIMES MOTORSPORTS to compete in the full 2005 schedule.

Travis may just be 16-years-old, but the sensations he has created in the Tidewater area of Virginia are unmistakable. He began his racing legacy at the age of seven, earning accolades at each stage of his racing experiences. The 2004 season found Travis racing Late Models at such revered venues as Bristol, Martinsville, South Boston, and New River Valley. His tenacity, partnered with his abilities, propelled him to South Hampton (Va.) Speedway's Rookie of the Year for the 2004 season.

According to Mat Miller, owner of Miller Motorsports and Travis's dad, "We are really excited about Travis moving up to the Hooters Pro Cup Series. Learning to handle the horsepower in a Pro Cup car versus that of a Late Model will represent a big step in his racing career, I'm sure."

Travis echoed his dad's sentiment.

"I'm thrilled with the opportunity ahead," said Travis. "Working with Phil and the rest of the crew at FASTTIMES represents a new challenge, but I'm ready for it. I'm also excited about moving to the Charlotte area with its rich racing environment."

FASTTIMES MOTORSPORTS, of Concord, N.C., is proud to add Travis, who will run as a teammate of Southern Division rookie Chase Pistone, to its stable of thoroughbreds. "Travis has proven to be a real talent," said team owner Phil Stefanelli. "Travis is capable of developing into a true champion, but this year we will set our sights on rookie of the year. As Travis grows in his knowledge and feel for this sport, FASTTIMES will be there with him. It is our hope to help guide Travis through his young career, and perhaps some day make him the driver of a Craftsman Truck. For now, it is our task to provide guidance and equipment that make the most of Travis's talents."
