Miller Racing Announces Addition Of Ty Dillon For Road America

“We’re very excited to have Ty with us this weekend,” said Mike Miller, owner of Miller Racing. “He’s a talented driver with plenty of experience and we’re proud that he has chosen Trans Am, and particularly Miller Racing and TA2 to develop his road-racing talent.”

The addition of Dillon for Road America will combine the race and championship -wining program of Miller Racing, with one of the Nationwide Series’ brightest talents, who currently sits fourth in the Nationwide Series standings.

“Obviously, I’ve always been a proponent of the TA2 class,” said Miller. “It’s a great platform for road racing—the power, the speed, the cars themselves—it gives the drivers a means of showcasing their skills and taking their talent to the next level. In the end, we are incredibly privileged to have been selected to prepare a TA2 car for Ty and we welcome the opportunity to provide a means for him to continue to hone his road racing skills. TA2 cars have a very similar performance to a Nationwide car and we see this as a great opportunity for us, Trans Am, TA2 and Ty.”

Some of Dillon’s previous accolades include 2011 ARCA Racing Series Champion, 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year, and 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Most Popular Driver. He also finished second in points in the 2013 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Miller Racing has been a perennial force in the TA2 class with drivers such as defending TA2 Champion Cameron Lawrence, Pete Halsmer, Geoff Fane, Mel Shaw and Mike Miller, himself, all competing over the course of the team’s history. Cameron Lawrence is also the current TA2 points leader.

Miller Racing and the Trans Am Series will take to the track at Road America first for practice at 3:30 p.m. CDT on Thursday, June 19, followed by another practice session on Friday at 8:45 a.m. CDT and qualifying at 4:05 p.m. later that day. The 101.2-mile Trans Am race will take place Saturday, June 21 at 5:15 p.m.

Also in attendance at Road America will be the NASCAR Nationwide Series and Pirelli World Challenge GT/GTA/GTS.
