A fixture in the junior open-wheel formula program for the past several seasons, Miller Vinatieri Motorsports (MVM) is making the move to the INDY NXT by Firestone program in 2024. With a pair of successful tests at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the picturesque Barber Motorsports Park, Jack William Miller, with the support of several new and longtime partners, will climb the ladder and now sits one step away from the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
“To say I am excited is an understatement,” explained Jack William Miller, who will pilot the #40 entry for Miller Vinatieri Motorsports. “I did my time in the ladder program, gaining experience along the way, and am ready for the future challenge. While we enter INDY NXT as a single-car program competing against some huge multi-car efforts, there are some positives that we hope we can capitalize on being a smaller program as I head into my rookie season.”
“I raced five seasons in INDY NXT (formerly IndyLights) when I was younger and to watch my son succeed and move up the ladder is something very special to both myself, and my family,” explained Miller, who co-owns Miller Vinatieri Motorsports with former NFL Superstar and four-time Superbowl Champion kicker Adam Vinatieri. “His dream, much like mine was, is to compete in the Indy 500 and in INDYCAR and the move to INDY NXT makes the dream one more step closer to becoming a reality.”
With two more tests and four more days on track before the first green flag of the season at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in early March, Miller will see action at the Sebring International Raceway in mid-January before crossing the country and over to California to test at the famed WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in early February.
Miller continued, “I have been working hard both on and off the track to make sure that I am 100% ready. I feel physically and mentally ready to compete and in my two tests so far, felt comfortable behind the wheel. I am ready.”
