MILLER VINATIERI MOTORSPORTS TO ENTER ROAD TO INDY IN 2019
Indianapolis, Indiana based Miller Vinatieri Motorsports (MVM) is set for big changes in 2019. Announcing today that they will compete in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, the team will get their first official test under their belt at the Chris Griffis Memorial Test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the weekend of September 22-23. Set to embark on a two car program, the option of a possible third car will be announced at a later date.
“I am really excited to enter the Road to Indy program as they offer so much possibility for up and coming drivers,” explained three time Indianapolis 500 starter and five season Indy Lights competitor Jack Miller. “I have been fortunate enough to experience IndyCar racing first hand and my son has a goal to make it to the top. This is the best thing for him and his future career as well as our outstanding number of marketing partners.”
With Jack William Miller set to drive one of the Miller Vinatieri Motorsports USF-17s, the second seat is currently open for both the Chris Griffis Test as well as the 2019 racing season.
Miller continued, “My team and I have managed to secure a major sponsor for 2019 that will offset some of the costs of running a second car. With that being said, a subsidized ride is available for the complete 2019 season and we will begin to test drivers beginning September 22nd and 23rd at the Indy test and onwards.”
Running a current two car program in the F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda with Jack William Miller and Dylan Tavella, the growth of the program is a natural progression as drivers begin to move up the motorsports ladder.
“I am excited to be part of the MVM program and the Road to Indy,” added Indianapolis Colts and future hall of fame kicker Adam Vinatieri. “I value my friendship and working relationship with Jack and can’t wait to work with our USF2000 drivers as a mental coach and ambassador as we launch our new program.”
“We are looking forward to the USF2000 program in 2019 and beyond,” explained Miller. “We have a very solid group of people and will offer not only race team and driver coaching services, but media, marketing and promotional opportunities within the team. We want to grow in the coming years and grow with our drivers by providing a variety of different tools both on and off the track.”
