Matt Mills on Saturday’s Race at Circuit of the Americas: “COTA is a new challenge for me, but I’m excited for the only road course race of the season this weekend,” said Mills. “I saw how strong Niece Motorsports was at this track last year, so I know they’ll bring us a fast J.F. Electric/Utilitra Chevrolet.”

By The Numbers: Saturday’s race at Circuit of the Americas will mark Mills’ first start at the 3.41-mile Texas road course. The Ohio-native has one road course start in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, which came at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course last season. Mills has seven NASCAR Xfinity Series starts on road courses as well.

On the Truck: Mills’ No. 42 Chevrolet Silverado will race with support from longtime partners J.F. Electric and Utilitra.

Recapping the Last Race: Matt Mills lined up 18th for Saturday night’s race after the afternoon’s practice and qualifying session. Unfortunately, an early spin and contact with the wall put Mills and the No. 42 team behind the eight ball for the remainder of the race. The J.F. Electric Chevrolet showed speed, but was unable to make up the lost laps, ultimately finishing the day in 25th.

Mills on Last Race at Bristol Motor Speedway: “Tonight I made a costly mistake early on in the race,” said Mills. “We fixed it as well as we could, and proved to run top-five lap times. Ultimately, we couldn’t make too much forward progress being laps down. We’ll continue on and look to run a smart race at COTA.”
