Career[edit]

ARCA[edit]

Miller joined this series in 2005 at the age of 18 made his ARCA debut at Nashville Superspeedway. In that race he moved to the top-five before running out of gas. Then, at Gateway International Raceway, Miller led multiple laps before falling out due to transmission trouble. Miller was then tapped by Dodge Motorsports to drive their Cunningham Motorsports No. 4 Driver Development Dodge in six ARCA races in 2006. After an 11th-place finish at Nashville, Miller charged to the win at Pocono Raceway.[2] He set the record as the youngest driver to ever win an ARCA race at Pocono to that point. He then backed up his win with a dominating performance at the second annual ARCA Pocono event before a cylinder failure took him from the lead, with only eight laps remaining, and forced him to a fifth-place finish. He also qualified on the pole at Gateway and was leading the race when more mechanical problems plagued him. His outstanding performance won him the opportunity to compete in the Craftsman Truck Series with the Dodge Development Team.

Trucks to Busch[edit]

The No. 46 Key Motorsports entry in 2011

Miller joined up with Bobby Hamilton Racing near the end of the 2006 season as a part of the Dodge Driver Development Program. In only his fourth start, Miller scored a top ten at Martinsville Speedway. He was signed to drive the No. 4 Dodge Development Open Joist Dodge Ram for the full 2007 season. However, after five races Dodge discontinued their Driver Development Program and Miller and BHR parted ways.[3] He was soon hired by Ray Evernham to drive a part-time schedule in his Busch Series No. 9 car. In only his second career start, Miller scored a second-place qualifying effort at Kentucky Speedway,[4] and a best finish of fifteenth at Gateway. In 2008, he ran twelve races in the No. 9 car once again, with sponsorship from Unilever and Verizon Wireless, as well as two additional races in the No. 19 car for Evernham. He had two top-ten finishes and finished 38th in points in a part-time schedule. This team closed at the end of the year, and he spent the first several months unemployed, before he signed to drive the No. 91 MSRP Motorspots car for a few races and finished the season at JTG Daugherty. During the 2010 season, he filled in for David Gilliland in the No. 91 Toyota for Eddie D'Hondt. Without a solid ride for 2011, Chase drove the No. 68 for new team Fleur-de-lis Motorsports and the No. 46 for Key Motorsports, with both rides being start and park entries.

In 2012, Miller drove for The Motorsports Group in the No. 46, start-and-parking for most of the season; in 2013 he returned to the team for selected races, also driving for TriStar Motorsports in the team's No. 91 at Bristol Motor Speedway.[5]
