Dr. Jack Miller
Team Owner and Driver Coach
Dr. Jack Miller is a three-time starter in the Indianapolis 500 (1997, 1998 and 1999) and the March-series champion of Indy Lights (1993). A practicing dentist, he brought several major dental health companies together to build a racing program around his racing efforts that also included a dental health care educational program. It stressed the importance of dental health care to more than a million young people. Dr. Miller is also an accomplished commercial-rated pilot and flew Vice President Mike Pence to many functions while he was governor of Indiana. Dr. Miller got his love of racing from his grandfather, who owned sprint cars. Dr. Miller put together his own racing program from scratch through perseverance and hard work, and he enjoys helping his team’s young drivers try to do the same.
Adam Vinatieri is a placekicker for the National Football League’s Indianapolis Colts. He has played in five Super Bowls winning four of them, an NFL record. A future Hall of Famer, he has been called “Mr. Clutch” by the media due to his success when kicking under pressure. Other nicknames include “Automatic Adam” for his accuracy and “Iceman” for his poise under pressure. He has converted several of the most crucial field goals in NFL history. He often shares motivational tips that work well for him to help our drivers’ mental preparation and in 2018, set the record for the most points scored all-time in the National Football League.
