Joseph Miller (born January 22, 1985, in Lakeville, Minnesota) is a former professional stock car racing driver in the American Speed Association, the ARCA RE/MAX Series and the Camping World Truck Series.
Miller grew up in the Lakeville, Minnesota, area. He began racing quarter midgets at the age of 12 and eventually ran various hobby stock series races, winning many races. He had 22 starts in the American Speed Association with three top tens. He also competed in the ARCA RE/MAX Series scoring five wins in his rookie year with Country Joe Racing, easily clinching 2005 Rookie of the Year, but finished second to Frank Kimmel for the championship.
In 2006, Miller attempted the full schedule in the Craftsman Truck Series, driving the #12 Toyota Tundra for Darrell Waltrip Motorsports. After fourteen starts and a fifth-place finish at Mansfield Motorsports Speedway, he was released from his ride due to a lack of sponsorship.
Miller competed infrequently in the ARCA series with his old family-owned team, but the team eventually sold all of its equipment. Miller returned to the ARCA series for one last race at the Pocono Raceway on 5 August 2007 and crashed in an accident not of his doing. In the post-incident interview, he said that he was returning to help run the family housing business in Minnesota and that he would probably not race again. However, in late August 2011, Miller returned to the ARCA Racing Series at the Madison International Speedway with Win-Tron Racing's #32 Champion Oil Dodge. Miller now owns his own successful home building business Country Joe Homes and resides in the Twin Cities area. You can catch him running his Super Late-models at Elko Speedway now on most Saturday nights during the summer.
