Parting ways with Destiny Motorsports over the weekend, Parker Price-Miller has been busy pounding the pavement to secure opportunities for the remainder of the 2018 season, and his first hurdle is cleared as he will team up with Bernie Stuebgen and Indy Race Parts and pilot the No. 71P during the 58th Capitani Classic and the 58th Annual Knoxville Nationals.
“I am fortunate to know some great people in this sport, and am looking forward to working with Bernie and everyone at the Nationals,” Price-Miller said. “I have worked with him before doing some midget stuff, and I am really excited to get started this weekend.”
Price-Miller comes into the Knoxville Nationals sitting seventh in All Star Circuit of Champions points on the strength of 11 Top-Five finishes and 30 Top-10 finishes. In recent competition at Knoxville Raceway this past Saturday night with the series, the Kokomo, IN driver finished 15th in the feature event with 56 cars checked into the pit area.
“The Nationals is tough to begin with so obviously coming into this race with a new mechanic and team makes it a little bit more tough, but Bernie has a great track record and has done some great things at Knoxville with a variety of drivers,” Price-Miller said. “I am fortunate to team up with him for sure.”
Sunday night Price-Miller will pilot the Indy Race Parts/Chalk Stix No. 71P at the Capitani Classic, and will then take his shot at qualifying for the Nationals next Thursday night. At the time of press, PPM and team are unsure of Monday night’s Front Row Challenge event.
Price-Miller and his team would like to thank Townline Variety, Chalk Stix, Indy Race Parts, Bell Helmets, and PPM Titanium for their support.
