Brandon Nozaki Miller, commonly known as both "Electric Cowboy" and "Sparky", is the world's first motorcycle racer to get licensed to race on an electric motorcycle, and went on to become the world's first professional racer to have never ridden a motorcycle powered by anything other than electricity. He was licensed at CVR (Chuckwallah Valley Raceway) with CVMA (Chuckwallah Valley Motorcycle Association) and TrackDaz. CVMA is the first motorcycle organization to license any racer on an electric motorcycle. As part of his progress and to challenge the stigma surrounding electrics when he first came into the sport, he made a point to show that production electrics were ready for everyone be they racers or not by competing in events like Pikes Peak, TTXGP, Mike Cooks Bonneville Landspeed shootout, MWGP, and even competed in M1GP which held the first US electric only club racing series.
