NOTE 1 -- The Motorock Miami 100 marks Miller's 100th career Trans-Am starts.

NOTE 1 -- MIAMI STATS...Miller qualified fourth and finished eighth, having lost power steering, pitting to replace a water pump belt, and being caught up in a late race melee.

NOTE 2 -- BACKGROUND STATS...Ranks second in the points standings...Has one win (Lime Rock) and eight podium finishes this season...Has two wins, 39 top-five finishes, 66 top-ten finishes, and four poles in 99 starts...Made his Winston Cup debut in Infineon Raceway, finishing 24th...Raced in the Watkins Glen Cup race, finishing 36th.

On his afternoon practice session... "We were pretty quick early on. The car was pushing. We wanted to get some grip so we came in and put on sticker tires. It took us a few laps to get them up to temperature, but by then, the red flag came out, and we were done for session. We shot ourselves in the foot, so to speak. It was a little frustrating."
