Top 10 finish earns Travis Miller his second "Top Rookie" of the race this season, and now leads Northern Series Rookie points chase.
Team release

After having brake problems which ended in a disappointing 16th place finish at Mansfield, OH, the Miller Motorsports team was looking to rebound at Indianapolis and try and stay in the hunt for the Rookie of the Year title.

In the first half of practice Travis was able to get a good feel for the somewhat intimidating race track and dialed the car in with some adjustments suggested by Crew Chief Scott Prillman. Those changes would keep Travis near the top five in the final practice sessions of the day.

When it came time for qualifying, Travis would be the second driver to attempt to qualify in the 90 degree heat. Travis’ qualifying run would put him starting 10th in the field. “The car was really loose in qualifying, but I am happy to be starting on the outside near the front row” said Travis, “if we have a good start we should be in the top five in no time”.

With the start of the race drawing near, the Miller Motorsports team had two things on there minds, and they were to finish a race with no mechanical problems and to stay out of the misfortunes of the other competitors.

At the drop of the green flag, Travis quickly moved up to seventh place, but found himself fighting a loose race car in the early laps of the race. On lap 85, while still racing in the 7th position and battling a hard charging L.W. Miller, L.W. drove deep into turn 1 under Travis and his car pushed up the race track into Travis’ left rear corner sending him spinning in front of the field. Fortunately, Travis kept the car at full throttle and spun around keeping the car off the wall. During that caution, Travis went to pit road for fuel, 4 tires and a few adjustments and managed to remain on the lead lap, but back in 30th position.

The rest of the race was a struggle to advance back to the front on the one groove race track. With less than five laps to go Travis, had made his way back into the top 15, but he was not satisfied. With some bold moves in the last two laps, Travis managed to advance two more positions by passing the 02 of Dominick Casola, and last year’s pole winner, Brian Ross, to finish 10th place and pick up his second “Rookie of the Race Award”.

You can watch the Aaron's 212 this Wednesday Night at 5:00 pm EST on the Speed Channel. The next event for the team will be Friday June 30th at Erie Speedway in Pennsylvania. Keep up with Travis Miller and the #76 Arena Racing / Race-Depot.com Ford Fusion at www.TravisMillerRacing.com.
