Joel Miller: 2013 Grand Am Rookie of the Year
Oct 12, 2013, 11:49 AM

Joel Miller was named a Grand Am Rookie of the Year 2013

Hello Everyone,

The 2013 season has come to an end in the Rolex Grand Am championship and what a year it has been. I am happy to say that in my first full season of sportscar racing I was able to record second in the overall Grand Am Rolex GX championship, Most wins in class, and ultimately the 2013 Grand Am Rolex Rookie of the Year title.

Along the way I was asked to drive for Freedom Autosport in two of Grand Am's Continental Tire Championship races in the ST division where we scored a pole position at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and the overall victory at Lime Rock Park.

The year was capped off as I was part of the first class of inductee's to Mazda's Road to Indy Pro Mazda Hall of Fame along with Joey Hand, Michael McDowell, and Tristan Vautier.

It was a year of firsts, because I recorded my first Sportscar victory which was also the first victory for a diesel engine in Grand Am. My crew at SpeedSource worked very hard to prepare the new Skyactiv-D clean diesel engine that powered our Mazda6. Without their help this season, It would not have produced the results that it did. I am very thankful to Mazda's partners and VISITFLORIDA.com for their involvement as well.

This year I have to say thank you to my personal supporters such as Oakley, OMP racewear, Bell Helmets, USANA with their Rev3 product, and Dream Cars Automotive. Also, there are many names that have helped in years past which got me to where I am today. The Mazda brand has taken me from karting to the top step of the podium in Grand Am.

Next year is already here and announcements will be coming during the holiday period.

2014 will be a big year for SportsCar racing in North America which will get started at the 24hrs of Daytona in January.

Thank you for everyone who supported me along the way this season!

Joel Miller
