               Dr Jack Miller with the two drivers
               and Rubens Barrichello

Miller Vinatieri (MVM) Motorsports, LLC is a professional auto racing team owned by three-time Indy 500 starter Dr. Jack Miller and four-time Super Bowl champion and Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri.After announcing in mid-August plans to contest the 2019 Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, Miller Vinatieri Motorsports went immediately to work to secure a second driver to join Jack William Miller as teammate. Today the team is proud to announce Brazilian Eduardo Barrichello will pilot a Miller Vinatieri Motorsports USF-17 for his debut season in the Road to Indy series.

“We are very pleased to have Eduardo join the MVM family,” notes team owner and three-time Indianapolis 500 starter Jack Miller. “Eduardo is son of former Formula 1 star Rubens Barrichello, and their family bond is unmistakable. It rings true having my son as a second generation driver, so I am confident Eduardo and the whole Barrichello family will fit perfectly into our operation. We will be running our first season in the USF2000 ranks, but we have put together an excellent and experienced crew and engineer, making a great platform for Eduardo as he begins his march up the Road to Indy ladder.”

Eduardo will enter 2019 on the heels of his first full season in open-wheel racing. Competing in the US F4 division as a rookie in 2018, the Orlando, Florida resident had a strong first season in cars and looks for more in 2019. A star in the karting ranks as well, the young Barrichello secured numerous high-profile victories in his six-year kart career before turning his focus to car racing.

“I am excited to join Miller Vinatieri Motorsports and the USF2000 program in 2019,” explains the younger Barrichello. “The Road to Indy program is something that I have followed throughout karting, and to finally be able to take part in it is something special. The plan is to get lots of testing under my belt before the first race of the season, but I can tell you that I am already counting down the days to St. Pete.”

“I met Jack during the F4 season and we had an instant connection,” adds Rubens Barrichello, trackside at Sebring International Raceway where his son, Eduardo, is getting experience behind the wheel of the USF-17. “Jack has a love and passion for the sport, similar as I do, and combined that with the love for our kids, it made perfect sense. We are very excited to enter the USF2000 Series and Road to Indy program as it the perfect next step for Eduardo and his racing career.”

NFL all-time leading points scorer and current Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri also is excited to have Barrichello join the team.

“Not only am I big fan of Jack William, I have also been a fan of Rubens throughout his career,” explains Vinatieri. “I am hoping to get to a lot of races in the future and lend my hand in helping grow a successful program. To have Jack William and Eduardo as teammates, as well as a strong team in place around them, I can’t wait to follow their progress and improvement as they continue to march up the motorsports ladder.”

Miller Vinatieri Motorsports has plans for an extensive winter testing program in advance of the 2019 season, which officially gets underway in March at the St. Petersburg Grand Prix.

Tony Parella

Tony remained a motorsports enthusiast since his teenage oval track racing days when he competed at Canadagua Speedway, Rolling Wheels Speedway and Weedsport Speedway – all dirt tracks.

With his departure from the telecommunications industry, he began vintage racing with the Corinthian Vintage Auto Racing (CVAR) club in Texas in 2010. That experience led him to look at vintage racing as a business development opportunity and he purchased the SVRA in September 2012 after forming Parella Motorsports Holdings, LLC (PMH). At virtually the same time PMH acquired the Historic Sportscar Racing – West (HSR) organization and consolidated it into SVRA.

The acquisition of California-based General Racing in July 2014 gave the organization a West Coast footprint.

In 2016 PMH acquired an ownership position in the Trans-Am series. On August 8, 2017, Parella acquired the majority interest in TARC. The Trans Am series regularly shares venues with the SVRA on event weekends.

In just the last months Tony and has staff are continuing to enlist more sponsors. SVRA is continuing to grow at an amazing rate.

What did Tony do prior to buying and getting into ownership of SVRA?
