STEVEN MILLER WINS ROK CUP USA FLORIDA WINTER TOUR TITLE

Share this Post

Nash Motorsportz driver and senior rookie Steven Miller earned his third consecutive ROK Cup USA Florida Winter Tour title this past weekend and his first as a senior driver as the popular winter karting program concluded at the Orlando Kart Center. Doing so in dramatic fashion, Miller needed to overcome a first-corner incident and a drive from the back to the front to secure the championship.

After a solid set of heat races and a win in Saturday afternoon’s prefinal, all focus turned to Sunday and the final main event of the Florida Winter Tour. Starting from the preferred inside front row, Miller drove into the first corner to grab the lead but was hit from behind and spun, collecting multiple karts. With his never-say-die attitude, Miller climbed from his kart, pulled it from the incident, and drove from more than 14 seconds in arrears from 19th to fifth, garnering enough points for his third consecutive title.

“It was a difficult race and one that I will remember for quite some time,” explained Miller. “After the first corner wreck, I had a bent tie rod and steering shaft which greatly affected the kart’s performance. However, after a couple of laps, I was able to adapt and drive around the issue. I was able to claim the fastest lap of the race by more than two and a half tenths, despite driving through the field, and enough positions to win the championship.”

At only 14-years-of-age, and only racing in the senior ranks since January, winning the ROK Senior category at the Florida Winter Tour is a huge accomplishment.

Miller added, “All I want to do is win. I have been able to do so in the state of Florida for three straight seasons as both a junior and now a senior. I have won ROK events on permanent courses and temporary layouts including ROK Vegas last season. The season is only 25% over and I feel I have a lot more winning still to do in 2024. I would like to thank Nash Motorsportz, P1 Engines, and my sponsor SunPrint Racing.”
