Name: Marc Miller

Residence: Holland, Michigan

Born: Grand Rapids, MI2016-bg-mm-002

 

Marc Miller began racing karts at the age of 11. He has competed successfully in kart racing, formula cars, stock cars and now sportscars. Miller has multiple national karting titles, including winning the United States Rotax Championship in 2008. He competed for four years as the only American driver in NASCAR’s Canadian Tire Series with several “Top Rookie” awards. Since 2009 Miller has focused on sports car racing. He finished runner-up the Mazda MX-5 Cup Championship that season and has spent the last five seasons as a driver for CJ Wilson Racing in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. During that period he has secured multiple wins, pole positions and fastest laps.

 

His consistency was noticed by Riley Motorsports who drafted him into their squad for the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans driving the Dodge Viper GTS-R in 2015. His preparation for the most famous race in the World included driving the team’s #93 Viper GTS-R at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, CA in May 2015 where he qualified second and led during the opening stint of the race. For 2016, Marc was secured as the 3rd driver for the #33 Gas Monkey Energy / Viper Exchange / Riley Motorsports team for all of the endurance events, including the Rolex 24-Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, Petit Le Mans and tentatively, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Due to the Viper team being far down on the reserve list, it had looked like Miller would not return to Le Mans in 2016, but he was picked up by WeatherTech Racing / Proton Competition to compete in the #89 WeatherTech Porsche 911 RSR to complete an All-American line-up alongside Cooper MacNeil and Leh Keen.

 

Highlights of Miller’s career include driving on world-renowned racetracks like Le Mans, Circuit of the Americas, and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. In addition to competing professionally, Miller works as a professional driving coach with drivers across the state of Michigan, midwest and the entire United States & Canada.

 

When he is not at race events or helping to train drivers throughout the country, Miller enjoys spending time with his two sons, Evan (11) & Seth (9) and living an active lifestyle in West Michigan biking, kayaking or boating.
