The next three weeks will have a lot of firsts for rookie driver Vinnie Miller as he prepares for his first “West Coast Swing” (the name given to the back-to-back Las Vegas, Phoenix, and California race weekends) in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The Boyd Gaming 300 race weekend will be Miller’s first time racing Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS), and his first time visiting Las Vegas, N.V.
JAS Expedited Trucking will once again be on board Miller’s No. 01 JD Motorsports with Gary Keller Chevrolet Camaro for Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300.
“I am excited about going to Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” said Miller. “I like tri-oval, half-mile race tracks. They seem to fit my driving style the best, and they are very competitive. I’ve heard the track is really fast, but it will have more grip than Atlanta (Motor Speedway), and hopefully, be a little easier to tame. I’m hoping I will be able to bring home a better finish for JAS Expedited Trucking and JD Motorsports with Gary Keller. Atlanta was a tough one, but I’m ready to roll on to Las Vegas. I am looking forward to the West Coast Swing. I’ve never been to Las Vegas, Phoenix or California, so it should be a lot of fun in-between the races.”
NASCAR Xfinity Series practice is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. and 2:05 p.m. (PST) Friday. Qualifying will start at 10:10 a.m. (PST) on Saturday, and the Boyd Gaming 300 will get the green flag at 1:00 p.m. (4:00 p.m. ET) on FS1.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
