Mark Miller of Westminster has been involved in motor sports since he was a teen-ager. The 42-year-old has done everything from working on cars to being a major sponsor.Most of the time, Miller has been low-key in his involvement. But as much as he likes staying out of the limelight, Miller is finding it more difficult to stay in the background since he became part owner of Susquehanna Speedway.Next Sunday, Susquehanna will have its 1995 opener. It will be the third season of operations under the new owners -- John Wertz, Steve and Rick Schroll, Glenn Hyneman and Miller.
