Thank You BRANDEN from the entire Miley Motor Sports Team. Simply unbelievable. From a race fan to a racing promoter. This kind of stuff keeps us going in season 34.


Quote From Branden’s Facebook:

”There are not enough words I could write to properly express my sincere gratitude to every person who has contributed to this event to make it what will surely be a special night. First off to the George family for entrusting me with the job of putting this together to honor Jook. Dana Yu Patty George Jookie and Tammy Duvuvei George, thank you for believing in me. Alex, not enough words can express what you have done for this race. To all the sponsors who a great majority have supported my efforts since 2016. I say it every year but it’s true, you all are the reason this event has turned into such a great race. Also thank you to Matt Miley and Miley Motorsports who let me take the reigns and see what I could do with this event. Last but not least thanks to Vicki Emig and Michael Leone and the whole RUSH team for being such great partners and always going the extra mile for this race. Hats off to everyone, we can all look toward this Saturday and know it is going to be a great night. Thank you!”

William Thomas “Jook” George had a brief driving career himself, but as he turned to car owner he chose and had for most of his racing career the #10 and that was in honor of his racing hero, Lou Blaney, who drove his car on a couple occasions. Other highlights of his career was being nominated as the Sportsman of the Year at PPMS, being nominated into the Pittsburgh Circle Track Hall of Fame, winning the track championship at PPMS in 1990 with John Beatty behind the wheel, and winning the Fall Classic in 1993 with Bill Yakin, also at PPMS. His most dominant stretch as a car owner came in the late ‘70s when Earl Teeters was his driver.
“Miley Motor Sports is ecstatic about the 33rd edition of the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series ‘Jook George Classic’ to honor our great friend of racing, Jook George,” expressed PPMS promoter Matt Miley. “We can’t thank Branden, the RUSH Team, and all who have contributed enough. It’s a win, win, win, win- racers, fans, sponsors, and the Speedway.”
“This is the type of thing that energizes Miley Motor Sports to keep Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway alive,” continued Miley. “It’s been a long ride, 34 consecutive seasons! Age and what comes with it takes a toll on us. We simply can’t do everything ourselves. Younger folks who love the sport stepping up and making some of our best events is unbelievably refreshing. It energizes an old ownership team. A very sincere thank you from all of us at Miley Motor Sports!”
