TaxSlayer.com Sponsors No. 88 Modified Driven By L.W. Miller
Miller Seeks Fourth Whelen Southern Modified Series Championship in 2012
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 26, 2012) Three-time southern modified champion L.W. Miller enters the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified season with two notable additions to his Baker Motorsports car. Miller will carry the No. 88 in 2012, consistent with the JR Motorsports late model program in which he serves as crew chief and team manager. His car will also feature the logos of TaxSlayer.com , the team's new primary sponsor.
TaxSlayer.com is an online tax service that prepares and e-files tax returns each year for millions of customers. TaxSlayer.com also sponsors NASCAR Nationwide Series cars driven by Cole Whitt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. for JR Motorsports. The company joins secondary partner Speedco on board the No. 88 modified in Miller's quest for his fourth series championship.
We have a great relationship with Speedco, and bringing TaxSlayer.com into the fold is just icing on the cake, Miller said. The folks at TaxSlayer.com are a lot like us, very passionate about racing. Not only are they good people, but they're good friends. I'm looking forward to working with both partners this season towards our goal of a fourth championship.
A native of Dushore, Pa., Miller is a three-time southern modified champion, earning titles in 2003, 2004 and 2007. He is a 25-time southern modified winner with 56 top-fives and 81 top-10s. Miller's most successful championship season came in 2007 when he drove to a career-high five wins. Last year, Miller finished the season with two victories (Caraway Speedway and Bowman-Gray Stadium) en route to a seventh-place finish in the points standings. Miller's 13 wins since 2005 distinguish him as the winningest southern modified driver since the tour became a NASCAR-sanctioned series seven years ago.
