MILLER VINATIERI MOTORSPORTS READY FOR FIRST INDY NXT OVAL EVENT

Share this Post

With more than half of the 2024 INDY NXT by Firestone season in the books, Miller Vinatieri Motorsports (MVM) is set for their first INDY NXT oval event. With a series test at the Milwaukee Mile, the lone oval test day of 2024, Jack William Miller and MVM will head to the 7/8th of a mile Iowa Speedway this weekend for the first of four oval contests.

“We raced this past weekend in Mid-Ohio, and it was difficult, but we are a rookie team, and I am a rookie driver in a one-car effort in this challenging INDY NXT series,” explained Jack William Miller. “We struggled greatly in qualifying but managed to turn it around in the race after making big changes overnight.”

Struggling in qualifying as the team did not provide Miller with the car that he needed, the crew went to work on Saturday night to make wholesale changes. Increasing the performance and speed of the #40 machine, Miller was able to drive forward and finish 12th, earning the Jostens Biggest Mover of the Race award.

One who always shows speed on the ovals in ladder series programs below INDY NXT, Miller welcomes the opportunity to compete on one of the fastest ovals in the country.

Miller added, “We were in Iowa a few weeks ago for a test, but the weather got the best of us. It will be an exciting weekend with only one practice session, but I am confident and am up for the challenge. I love the ovals, and we had a great test in Milwaukee, so I am looking to put last weekend at Mid-Ohio behind me and focus on turning left for this weekend.”

Set to hit the track on Friday for practice and a two-lap qualifying effort, the 75-lap race will occur Saturday at 1:15pm CDT.
