ProMedia LLC, home of the NMRA, NMCA, and NMCA WEST event series, has added Rollie Miller, formerly of NHRA, to its team as event director.
Miller has been involved in drag racing since 1988, when former NHRA Competition Director (and current ProMedia Competition Director) Lynwood Dupuy hired him on as part of the renowned NHRA Safety Safari rescue team.
“We consider ourselves very fortunate to have attracted an individual with Rollie's experience, diverse skill-set and overall knowledge of the sport, and have him step right into what is considered a very key position with our company,” said ProMedia’s Charlie Harmon. “I'm looking forward to working with Rollie to continue improving a number of critical areas at our events, and there's no doubt that his energy, experience and enthusiasm will go a long way toward our efforts to make our products the best they can possibly be.”
While with the NHRA, Miller worked exclusively on the National Event Team at 16 to 18 events a year, and in 2006 became a full-time member. In that capacity, he was responsible for managing a number of key areas at every national event and, as such, was a key decision maker when it came to track prep, scheduling, equipment upkeep, inventorying and supply ordering.
Miller has since relocated to the Southern California area. ProMedia is based in Santa Ana, California.
