Scott Miller Taking Over as NASCAR Senior VP of Competition

A new face is joining the NASCAR executive hierarchy.

NASCAR announced today that Scott Miller will take over as the Senior Vice President of Competition. He takes over the position from Robin Pemberton, who announced yesterday that he was leaving the post at the end of the 2015 calendar year. The Senior Vice President of Competition is responsible for managing all competition efforts related to technology, inspection, rule development and officiating across all NASCAR racing series.

Miller will be subservient to NASCAR Executive Vice-President and Chief Racing Development Officer Steve O’Donnell and will be based at the Research & Development Center in Concord, N.C.

Prior to accepting the position, he spent the last four years as the head of competition at Michael Waltrip Racing. Under his leadership, the organization put at least one car in the Chase in 2012 (two), 2013 and 2015.

“I’m looking forward to using the experience I’ve gained working within teams in an entirely new way at NASCAR,” Miller said. “Our sport has evolved quickly over the last several seasons through advanced technology and its creative application in the garage area. We will strive to continue this forward momentum while assuring a level playing field and competitive racing. It’s a challenging opportunity and a logical next step for me. I can’t wait to get started.”

His résumé includes motorcycle racing in AMA Motocross, being an owner/driver in the NASCAR Winston West Series from 1983 to 1990, five seasons as a chief mechanic in the Verizon IndyCar Series and TriStar Motorsports in 1995.

I've followed NASCAR for well over 20 years of my life, both as a fan and now as a member of the media. As of 2023, I'm on my eighth season as a traveling NASCAR beat writer. For all its flaws and dumb moments, NASCAR at its best produces some of the best action you'll ever see in the sport of auto racing. Case in point: Kyle Larson's threading the needle pass at Darlington Raceway on May 9, 2021. On used-up tires, racing on a worn surface and an aero package that put his car on the razor's edge of control, Larson demonstrated why he's a generational talent. Those are the stories I want to capture and break down. In addition to NASCAR, I also follow IndyCar and Formula 1. As a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, and a graduate of the University of Tennessee, I'm a diehard Tennessee Volunteers fan (especially in regards to Tennessee football). If covering NASCAR doesn't kill me, down the road, watching Tennessee football will. I'm also a diehard fan of the Atlanta Braves, and I lived long enough to see them win a World Series for the first time since 1995 (when I was just a year old). I've also sworn my fan allegiance to the Nashville Predators, though that's not paid out as much as the Braves. Furthermore, as a massive sports dork, I follow the NFL on a weekly basis. Though it's more out of an obligation than genuine passion (for sports dorks, following the NFL is basically an unwritten rule). Outside of sports, I'm a major cinema buff and a weeb. My favorite film is "Your Name" and my favorite anime is "Black Lagoon."
