Jack Miller, usually known as Dr. Jack Miller, raced in the Indy Racing League from 1997 to 2001 and the Indianapolis 500 from 1997 to 1999. Miller is a practicing dentist and, thus, was known as “the racing dentist.”
Miller’s best IRL finish was a 9th in 1998 at Charlotte. His best finish in the Indianapolis 500 was a 20th his rookie year of 1997. During his stay in Indy Lights he won the 1993 B-series championship.
Miller’s final IRL start came at Atlanta in 2001. Miller was involved in a 13-car crash, and suffered injuries that ended his racing career. He was planning on entering the Indianapolis 500, but withdrew after the crash and retired from driving.
He also acquired a peculiar cult status. Known at the time for throwing tubes of toothpaste into the crowd and for the mobile dental clinic that travelled with him to races, he says that he still receives autograph requests in the mail to this day, despite a career best finish of ninth (Charlotte, 1998) and 20th at the Brickyard (in 1997).
Nowadays, Miller continues to practice dentistry in addition to his numerous other business interests, and remains involved in the sport via Miller Vintanieri Leguizamon Moitorsports, a Formula 4 team that he co-owns with Colts star Adam Vintanieri, and which includes his son Jack among its driver line-up.
