As a baseball standout in his younger years, Parker Price-Miller faced a difficult decision when he dropped the traditional route and committed to attempting a career in racing. After developing into a respected midget racing competitor throughout his teenage years, PPM transitioned into the sprint car world and has formed himself into one of the sport’s strongest young talents at just 20 years old.
After excelling through the micro sprint ranks, Price-Miller went midget racing and was a consistent threat as a 15-year old up-and-comer in 2013. He won Rookie of the Year honors with the POWRi National Midget League and finished that year with a new track record at Perris Auto Speedway as he set quicktime at the prestigious Turkey Night Grand Prix. The midget racing success continued into 2014 as PPM claimed Rookie of the Year honors at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, falling just short of the elusive main event in his inaugural attempt.
He would go on to win his first sprint car race in 2014 at East Bay (FL) Raceway Park and that catapulted him to more and more success over the years. He broke through to score his first-career All Star Circuit of Champions victory in 2015 and podiumed against the World of Outlaws at Oshweken (Canada) Speedway.
The 2016 campaign brought a championship along with a handful of wins and accolades. PPM podiumed against the Outlaws at Tri-State (IN) Speedway, he won the Canadian Nationals title, and he claimed the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) championship.
More breakthroughs followed in 2017 as Price-Miller most notably won his first-career World of Outlaws Sprint Car main event at Tri-State Speedway. His stellar season and promising future prompted the Destiny Motorsports group to hire PPM to pilot their No. 4 entry.
A rocky road ensued in 2018 for the young Indiana native, but a last-minute opportunity with Bernie Stuebgen of Indy Race Parts quickly turned PPM’s relatively down season around. Coming together in the days leading up to the race, a quick deal was struck to put Parker in an Indy Race Parts No. 71 at the Knoxville Nationals. After a strong preliminary effort and B-Main victory, PPM put it in the show, qualifying for his first-career Nationals feature.
Price-Miller and Stuebgen continued to connect throughout the remainder of 2018 and pieced together solid runs night-in and night-out, nearly stealing a World of Outlaws win at Eldora (OH) Speedway. PPM will return to pilot the Indy Race Parts number 71 in 2021.
