Frequent rain showers made for a challenging NASCAR Xfinity Series race at ISM Raceway, especially for rookie driver, Vinnie Miller, making his first career start at the Phoenix, A.Z., track. The No. 01 Flex Glue Chevrolet Camaro finished in 33rd place in Saturday’s DC Solar 200.
Miller qualified in 33rd place for the race. Despite a pit road speeding penalty and two red flags for rain, Miller and his JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team made gains throughout the race and brought home a clean race car.
“Each week I continue to learn from my time on track,” said Miller. “The scoreboard doesn’t always show what a great job my No. 01 JD Motorsports team is doing each week. Our lap times and progress are consistently improving. Tires were definitely a factor in Phoenix. I am positive when we return to ISM Raceway in the fall, we will have a much stronger showing. My goal is to continue to learn from my teammates and other veterans in the NASCAR Xfinity Series so that I can get Flex Seal, Flex Glue, and JAS Expedited Trucking in the top-20 every race.”
Next up for the NASCAR Xfinity Series is the Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, C.A., on March 17th, 2018.
