He was able to finish a brutal course and successfully defeated more than 60 racing drivers in the said racing off-road racing event. The Johnson Valley is considered the largest field in history according to the promoter of the off-road racing challenge.  There were several obstacles along the way, but Miller was able to overcome the challenge and competitively ended the course for the huge win. Rick Mooneyham of Arizona finished at second place, while Shannon Campbell came for the third sport.
Meanwhile, Graham Jarvis was named as the 2012 King of Motors in the invite-only off-road race held at the Johnson Valley.
