Huntersville, North Carolina (Wednesday: July 15, 2015): A Hail Mary; one of the most exciting plays in football, also describes the last few days for Matt Mills and his management team. The 18-year-old New Philadephia, Ohio native finished 10th last Friday at Dixie Motor Speedway (Mich.), and when he climbed out of the No. 5 Rick Turner Racing Pro Late Model, he wasn’t sure he would climb back in it this weekend at Anderson Speedway (Ind.) due to a sponsorship shake up. The news is good, however. Mills has teamed up with Emerson Concepts, LLC for the Anderson 100 Presented by JEGS.com and will once again pilot the No. 5 Rick Turner Racing Pro Late Model this weekend. Like last week, after racing with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance on Friday, he will head to Midvale Speedway located in Midvale, Ohio on Saturday to race his family owned No. 4 Outlaw Super Late Model.
The Buckeye State teenager is currently sitting fifth in JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance points and second in the Howie Lettow Memorial Rookie-of-the-Year Presented by Van Doorn Development points as well. The fifth race is the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour will take place at the fast, (0.250) 1/4-mile Anderson Speedway located in Anderson, Indiana. The Anderson 100 Presented by JEGS.com will run on Friday, July 17, 2015, as part of Stoops Freightliner Redbud 300 Weekend.
Anderson Speedway (Ind.) and Midvale Speedway (Ohio) have their own unique challenges. Anderson Speedway (Ind.), with it’s high-banked turns is one of the fastest (0.250) 1/4-mile racetracks in the country. Midvale (Ohio), although not as high-banked features the same great side-by-side action and is still a very fast track. Mills will attempt to conquer both this weekend.
“I am so excited to be back in the Rick Turner Racing No. 5 again, and so blessed to have Emerson Concepts, LLC onboard this weekend as well,” Mills said. “I am so thrilled to go to Anderson (Speedway) (Mich.), a track Rick Turner and Rick Turner Racing have figured out. Like last week, we are pulling double duty. Midvale is a track I look forward to racing at whenever I can. I think we will have great cars on both Friday and Saturday.”
