It was "Miller Time" at Road America

Round 5 of the Sports Prototype Cup North America at Road America staged three races over the weekend which were dominated by the impressive debutant Palmer Miller and series stalwart Judd Miller. Each securing first and second respectively in each of the three races, that is no mean feat indeed.


There was plenty of track time at Road America, with seven free practice sessions, two qualifying sessions, two sprint races and an enduro race. This led to each Revolution on average covering a whopping 750km of track time, and without a single mechanical issue limiting running for any Revolution Race Car! That was some workout for all drivers and cars.


Race 1: Palmer announces himself on the scene!

Series debutant Palmer Miller dominated race one at Road America and delivered on his pre-race promise with a lights to flag victory. To add to the celebrations, dad Judd, made it a family and Revolution one-two. Revolution Race Cars, being run by both Esses Racing and Classic Car Club Racing looked and sounded great. Congratulations to all Revolution drivers who finished race one as follows;


P1 Palmer Miller

P2 Judd Miller

P5 Nathan Duckles

P7 Marc Russell

P9 Zac Moseley


Palmer finished a whopping 8.5 seconds up the road demonstrating his quality on the day. Impressive driving on his debut Revolution race.


Race 2: Its Miller Time! The Millers make it two for two

Two for two for Palmer at Road America. The series debutant drove home his dominance in race two to secure the win by 39 seconds! Palmer Miller made his Revolution 500SC dance on every lap, showing speed and consistency throughout!


Dad Judd Miller, made it a family and revolution 1-2 again. However, it was the battle for third that raged for three quarters of the race between Jim Booth and Zac Moseley that caught the eye. Jim & Zac were duelling it out with only centimetres between them for many laps. However, a puncture cut short the fight just before the end which demoted Zac to 8th and gave Jim some breathing room.

Race 3: A hat-trick delivered in the enduro

Esses Racing's Palmer and Judd Miller made it three back-to-back one-twos in race three.

Whilst Palmer Miller dominated up front, father Judd had to battle for second, only securing the spot with two laps to go in the hour-long enduro race, closing down and overtaking the LMP3 of Paul LaHaye on lap 23 of 25.

The fastest lap of the entire race meeting, was posted on lap four of the enduro race, on full fuel tanks by Classic Clar Club Racing's Marco Cencetti recording a 2:05.920. Marco said after he believed a high four was possible with a lighter fuel load 👀👀.
