Our thoughts are with the Miller family, especially Steve and Rick, and Tom's two sons. I will miss our cousin Tom. He was truly a Godsend for his father these past recent years and always a wonderful person to be around all of my life.

We were surprised to hear of "Discos" passing. Some of our greatest ARCA memories were with cars built by Norman Negre and Disco. Our sincere condolences to Jamie and Sherry and the entire Miller family.
