Kokomo, Indiana’s Parker Price-Miller is the latest American amongst a number of last-minute Classic entrants that includes the likes of Jordyn Brazier, Ryan Jones and Steven Lines.
The most recent batch of entrants has seen the field swell to in-excess of 90 entries in what promises to be a hotly contested three nights of competition from January 18 to 20.
Having set the fastest qualifying lap on either night of the 2018 Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic, Parker Price-Miller immediately made most good judges sit up and take notice as he commenced his maiden Classic in fine style.
While the dream of making, and ultimately winning the 40-lap Sunday night final, eluded the talented resident of Kokomo, Indiana, he certainly showed enough to warrant a return trip for HRP Specialties and the Harding Family based out of Western Australia.
One of the season highlights for Price-Miller was at the famed Eldora Raceway, during the 4 Crown Nationals amongst a relative who’s who of the Sprintcar scene.
It was here that a trio of young tyro’s dominated proceedings with Price-Miller second to Aaron Reutzel, with Gio Scelzi in third, highlighting the depth of up and coming talent in the sport of Sprintcar Racing.
At the Knoxville Nationals, Price-Miller and Gio Scelzi were teammates under the Indy Race Parts banner and neither driver disappointed car owner and team principal Bernie Stuebgen, with Price-Miller making the big dance via a B-Main win before eventually wheeling the 71p entry to 18th place during the 50 lap final.
On his second visit to the Classic, the fan base of Parker Price-Miller is sure to grow as this talented sets about creating another little piece of Classic history.
His trip will be supported by HRP Specialties, Chalk Stix Torsion Bars, Rentco, Jolly Good Auto Electrics, Carahaul and Motorsport Connections.
Lines the 2011 and 2013 Classic Champion is one of the most respected drivers in the Country with his amazing car speed and never say die attitude lending himself to a legion of fans, especially on the banks of Mt. Max at Sungold Stadium.
Jordyn Brazier is another top end combatant in the Classic field, plying his craft at Sydney Speedway again this summer on the back of an American campaign that again took in the Knoxville Nationals.
Having claimed a start as the first emergency at the 2018 Classic, Jordyn was able to move forward to an eventual finishing position of 17th in the Classic finale.
