Royce and Linda Miller know they were lucky, this time.
The owners and operators of Maryland International Raceway, an IHRA national event drag strip in Budds Creek, Md., were the victims of a robbery at their home. They cannot determine whether the crime was related to their association with the track or not, but regardless, for all the precautions they’ve ever taken in the name of safety, they were confronted by a pair of robbers.
This is the first time Royce has discussed the incident with the drag racing media.
For the Millers, August 18th was no different than any other Tuesday. Royce had finished hosting a test session for NHRA Pro Stock team owner Jim Yates while Linda worked from home tending to the track’s book-keeping chores. The hour wasn’t late, about 8:30 PM.
