After not turning a lap in the first practice Friday due to NASCAR officials wanting a seat belt change due to a clip, Mills turned his fastest lap in final practice at 25.021, good for 25th on the speed charts.

“This track is unreal,” Mills said about the one-mile concrete track. “This track is everything that people say and more. It’s like a rollercoaster!”

Mills made his way up the racing ladder starting in go-carts before driving full size cars by the time he was 14. Mills kept digging for the NASCAR dream and was seen at the right time by the right person running late model races.

“The opportunity to run with Faith Motorsports was kind of unexpected,” explained Mills. “Kansas was a one-race deal at the time and we did good with it and here I am”

Kansas was the other track that Mills has a 17th place finish in the NCWTS. is a unique place of worship and fellowship designed specifically for people with special needs and their families.
