2022 Bill Miller Tribute

May 14-15, 2022
High Plains Raceway, Deer Trail, CO

The Bill Miller Tribute is our First Race of The Year, and One of the Most Popular!

Start the new racing season with the Bill Miller Tribute, one of our most popular events of the year!   Spring will be in full swing, and so will RMVR.

This May weekend is a tribute to Bill Miller’s 39 years of racing with RMVR, as well as a salute to the durability of both Bill and the Shelby GT-350H he’s raced since Ronald Reagan’s inauguration.

Undoubtedly, if you have raced with RMVR for any length of time, you’ve seen the pristine black and gold 1966 Shelby GT-350H roll onto the track, piloted by the one-and-only Bill Miller. Bill bought the unique Hertz rental car in 1981.  Possibly the only racer who still drives his race car to and from the races.

Another very notable fact that Bill holds unto himself is that he raced in and finished all 15 RMVR race events at Steamboat – the only one to have accomplished that feat!

But let’s face it – his passion for the sport is clearly evident. He’s an inspiration to all drivers – the young, and the young-at-heart – showing that nothing can stop you if you truly desire it. This year, though, at age 88, Bill has decided it’s time to hang up his racing helmet. But he’s agreed to drive #22 to the track once more to serve as pace car driver this weeekend.

In Bill’s honor, we’ll have a Mustang ‘parade’ following the fun race on Saturday, which will again feature “Age Before Beauty” on the grid.  The Spring Race is a great time to “shake off the rust” and get your cars set-up and ready for the 2022 racing season!
