JD Motorsports with Gary Keller continues to set their driver line-up in stone for 2018 as they announced on Tuesday that NASCAR K&N Pro Series East graduate Vinnie Miller will drive the No. 01 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series full-time.

“It’s a dream come true,” Miller said. “As a young racer, you certainly dream of making it to this level and competing with the best of the best, without being sure it will ever happen. I have several people to thank, but mostly importantly, I need to thank my family for their support. The sacrifices they have made to allow me to chase my dreams do not go unnoticed, and it will be really special to share the next step in this journey with them.”

The 20-year-old gained experience in ARCA and NKNPSE, scoring six top-10’s, before making his XFINITY Series debut this past season at Chicagoland Speedway, finishing 29th. He also made his truck debut in 2017, placing seventh at Talladega Superspeedway.

“I see a lot of potential in Vinnie,” said team owner, Johnny Davis. “He is a hard-working young man, and he has demonstrated his ability as a racer. He’ll have a lot to learn next year, but my team is committed to giving him the resources he needs to have a successful rookie year. Vinnie already fits in great with the team, so we’re looking forward to the 2018 season.”
