Whether racing go-karts or tearing it up in the 602 sprint car crate division, Ohsweken driver Johnny Miller has always had a passion for competition.
“I’ve always been around the race track since I was young because my dad is good friends with Glenn (Styres) and I would watch every Friday. In 2010 Milles Hill asked me to race his Go Kart with his daughter and in December 2018, I joined GSR to race in the crate division.”
Miller, who is coming off an impressive rookie year, also added, “What I like most about the (Ohsweken) speedway is how nice the facility is. This speedway is one of the most well-maintained speedways in North America. Everyone is friendly and it makes it more enjoyable.”
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ohsweken race fans and drivers alike experienced a major setback as the Ohsweken Speedway’s 25th Anniversary season was officially put on hold.
“I’m very disappointed and saddened by the season being temporarily suspended due to COVID,” Miller said. “Racing is my hobby and I’m very bored without it at the moment. But it’s better to suspend it for the moment.”
Originally, the season’s opener was supposed to have kicked off on Friday, May 15th, but there is no announcement on when it will start.
Reflecting on last year’s season a major highlight for Miller was, “Being on pole during the summer nationals. Miller also went on to add, “Since last year was my rookie year, my expectations weren’t too high. But I did fairly good and improved throughout the season.”
Unfortunately, now both racers and fans can only wait and see when or if there will be races and special features occurring this summer in what would be the 25th anniversary at Ohsweken Speedway.
