Before joining the NASCAR ranks Mills raced in the JEGS/CRA All-Star Tour as well as running numerous late model races.
"I'm very excited to be getting an opportunity to run for DGR-Crosley," said Mills. "The past few years I have been using my opportunities to learn and grow as a driver. Now I'll get to test the skills and see where I rank up with other drivers in the field. The DGR-Crosley team brings fast trucks to the track every weekend. I can't wait to get behind the wheel to see what I can do, and how much more I can learn with them at Michigan. Having David [Gilliland] there to help me is going to be huge asset. I can't thank everyone at J.F. Electric and DGR-Crosley enough for giving me this opportunity."
