George Miller of Gibsonburg, Ohio, began his racing career in 1960 and earned the Fremont Speedway Rookie of the Year title. Miller drove his own machines until 1965 when he began driving for Bob Wireman in the 1 Jr. car. In 1967 Miller teamed up with hall-of-fame car owner Earl Lowe to drive the familiar purple and white #66. Miller produced several top 10 finishes and heat and pursuit race wins before scoring his big feature victory on Memorial Day in 1970 at Fremont. The following night at Millstream Speedway, Miller had a nasty crash, literally breaking the #66 into two pieces. He would retire the following year. Last year, the old #66 was found and restored and Miller again returned to the track during the vintage races.
