Announced only a few weeks ago that Indianapolis, Indiana based Miller Vinatieri Motorsports (MVM) will compete in the 2019 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, the team has officially entered one driver for the upcoming Chris Griffis Test. Taking place at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the weekend of September 22-23, Jack William Miller will pilot the USF-17 car for the evolving MVM program.
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one of those facilities that you dream about racing at and I am thankful to have the opportunity to test this year as well as look forward to the race there in 2019,” stated Jack William Miller. “My goal is to climb the motorsports ladder and compete in the Indianapolis 500, and the Road to Indy not only competes at several of the same tracks that the Verizon IndyCar Series does, it also provides amazing opportunities and possibilities.”
While Miller Vinatieri Motorsports is new to the USF2000 program, the open wheel race team is experienced and brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. With a solid crew that has years’ worth of experience in all forms of motorsports, a marketing and promotional team on site for each and every event as well as team sponsors in place, the team looks to hit the ground running during the Chris Griffis Test and onwards into a winter test program leading up to the 2019 season.
“We have a great crew and a solid engineer,” added three time Indianapolis 500 starter Jack Miller. “We were prepared to be on track with two drivers but a minor setback put us behind late last week. However, the second car will be on track at a planned test in Michigan later this month with a veteran driver. All the pieces to our program are in motion or in place, and we will add to MVM in the future to increase professionalism and trackside programs for our marketing partners.”
Miller continued, “Miller Vinatieri Motorsports will have future announcements in regards to team marketing partners and alliances that will benefit our drivers.”
The annual Chris Griffis Test is set to take place September 22-23 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
