“We started as teammates, became friends, then partnered to create Esses Racing.”

 Gareth Rees was a key race team and pit crew member on the Red Bull Formula One teams for six years, winning four world championships with Formula One driver Sebastian Vettel. 

Andrés van der Dys is one of the most respected driver-coaches in the industry and has more than two decades experience. He has experience coaching and managing teams at Porsche, Audi, Lotus, MINI, HSR Modern GT, Formula BMW, HSR Historic, and Grand-Am.

Phil Spano has more than 30 years of IndyCar mechanic experience. He owned his own racing team, High Bridge Services, Inc., in the 90s.

While Judd and Kristina Miller came up with the partnership concept, Phil Spano and Gareth Rees came up with the name, Esses Racing.  Judd’s inspiration came as a result of being tired of dragging his own race car around on weekends in his trailer, doing all of the pit crew work and traveling back from the racetrack exhausted, trying to work on Monday.

 “I think the reason I started winning races is because I handed the work over to this great team, so I could just show up and race, and make it back to my day job with some snap left,” said Judd. “Then I said, I bet there are a lot of people out there who wish they could do the same thing.”
