Norm Miller: What’s Love Got To Do With It?

May 22nd, 2015 by

Interstate Batteries Chairman and Owner Norm Miller and his wife took off on a two-month, cross-country vacation for quiet and self-reflection, and he got more than he bargained for.

A photo from Norm's road trip.

The beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

How long has it been since you spent more than 2 months with just one person? I’m talking day and night, 24/7!

Well, my wife Anne and I took a once-in-a-lifetime trip several summers ago. Just the two of us on winding roads to a mountainous 5,006-mile trek from Vancouver, Canada, to the literal end of the road in Homer, Alaska, and back.

I was looking forward to a relaxed, casual approach to everything. I LOVE long quiet times alone when I wake up and draw near to God through devotionals, Bible reading and just thinking and praying. I decided I would read the New Testament again, slowly and thoroughly, a relaxed absorption of it all.

Anne and Norm Miller

Anne and Norm Miller

How wonderful, I thought. I’ll have plenty of time, no rush, just slow and easy. I can’t wait! We rented a 36-foot motor home in western Canada and off we went.

I learned many things on this trip — especially these five: I’m impatient. I’m intolerant. I’m rude. And sometimes, I’m even mean!

And so is my wife!

The days were packed with so many decisions: when to leave, when to stop, where to park, how private, and on and on, every single day! Not at all how I had imagined.

Fast forward to the last 2 weeks. I was still in the last part of Matthew, the first book of the New Testament. I had blown it! What with the long days, early dawns (at 4 a.m. or so), and a casual procrastinating, relaxed approach to time, I just didn’t get it done.

For some reason, I thought, What is the one most important thing God desires of and for me?

When lawyers asked Jesus, “What is the most important commandment?,” he answered, “You are to love your God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind and likened unto that, love your neighbor as yourself.”

Norm Miller's favorite pastime: fishing!

Norm Miller’s favorite pastime: fishing!

I had already failed to love my neighbor for the past 67 days! It was a difficult adjustment to spend 24/7 confined in a motor home with Anne, and I had responded with impatience, intolerance, rudeness, anger and arrogance. As I reflected on each day, God showed me my true, unloving behavior.

Here’s the even greater shock. This was the first time I realized that this behavior convicted me of failing in my love for God.

I had never equated my behavior toward others as lack of love for God. I’ve always known acting with arrogance and rudeness is sin. This was the first I thought of it as the sin of not loving God. I felt like God was saying to me, “Norm, love is the New Testament!”

Since then, I’ve began my morning prayers by remembering the past 24 hours and confessing my failures to Him, one by one.

Then I ask God to give me the same items on the list: the patience of Christ, the kindness of Christ, not to be selfish or jealous, or resentful or rude, on and on. You know what? He’s doing it! He’s helping me love more and better.

I started that trip through the mountains with high hopes of studying God’s Word. And when I slipped up, God still reached out to catch me and show me what LOVE truly is.

Isn’t that just like Him?

Real love comes from God and is given freely to those who enter into a personal, one-on-one relationship with Him. If you want to know more about a relationship with God, email our Chaplain Henry Rogers at henry.rogers@ibsa.com or visit iamsecond.com or thoughts-about-god.com.

Can Electric Cars Power On?

May 22nd, 2015 by

Electric car

Although fully electric car sales have increased significantly in the last couple of years, they still make up only almost 120,000 of the 16.5 million cars sold in the U.S.

Despite the hype of their “greenness” and value, they still have some major challenges to overcome: price, range and convenience. Currently, the most affordable model on the market is priced around $40,000 with a destination range of 60-80 miles. Many people travel farther than that during their daily commute.

If you make it to work, where would you charge your car? Most customers aren’t ready to trade the ease of finding a gas station (they’re called convenience stores for a reason) with finding a charging station — and then waiting for half an hour.

That’s not to say electric cars won’t eventually become more mainstream. They’re just not there yet. Meanwhile, other technologies like hybrid and semi-hybrid vehicles (also known as start-stop) are likely to become bigger players.

Cars are becoming more fuel-efficient, and the future is bright for alternatives to the traditional internal-combustion-engine-only vehicle.   But when it comes to the electric car, consumers are still waiting for the green light.

Team Interstate shone bright in this weekend’s races with an All-Star Race win Saturday night, a much-anticipated return by one of the sport’s best drivers and an amazing climb from last to third in Sunday’s Xfinity Series race. Here’s what’s happened:

Million-Dollar Denny

Denny Hamlin held off a hard-charging Kevin Harvick to win his – and Joe Gibbs Racing’s – first Sprint All-Star Race. A tremendous final four-tire pit stop by the No. 11 team vaulted Denny from sixth to first for the final restart, and Denny never looked back.

With no points at stake, the annual Sprint All-Star Race is a winner-take-all event showcasing the sport’s best, and to the victor goes $1 million.

Denny’s Team Interstate colleagues Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards finished fifth, sixth and 17th, respectively.

Team Interstate’s Kyle Busch returned behind the wheel of the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry Saturday night for the first time since breaking his right leg and left foot at Daytona International Speedway in February.

Kyle started 19th and finished sixth.

“It was a really good night for our M&M’s Red Nose Day Camry,” Kyle said. “I learned some things, and I think we learned some stuff – myself and Adam Stevens (crew chief) – about this racecar, for me, and getting around here in Charlotte.”

Kyle said he and Adam can take what they learned and apply it to this week’s Coca-Cola 600, the longest race of the year.

Erik Climbs Through the Iowa Field

Erik Jones showed yet again why he is one of the hottest young drivers in NASCAR. The driver of the No. 20 Interstate All Battery Center Toyota Camry rocketed from the rear of the field to bring home a solid third-place finish in Sunday’s 3M 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Iowa Speedway in Newton.

“Not a bad day,” said Erik, who earned his sixth top-five and nine top-10 finish in 10 Xfinity Series starts thus far this season.

The 18-year-old rolled off the grid first for the 250-lap race, thanks to Joe Gibbs Racing development driver Drew Herring, who practiced the car Saturday and qualified it on the pole. Drew performed those duties because Erik spent Saturday in Charlotte on standby for Kyle Busch. Because of the driver change between qualifying and the race, NASCAR rules forced Erik to start in the back.

Erik wasted little time working his way through the field, however. He picked up 11 spots in the first two laps and settled into the top 10 at lap 49.

Iowa Results:

  • 18 – Daniel Suarez – 18th
  • 20 – Erik Jones – 3rd
  • 54 – Boris Said – 26th

Erik Jones: Back in Familiar Territory

May 14th, 2015 by
Erik Jones is putting the Interstate Batteries firesuit on again for Iowa Speedway this weekend.

Erik Jones is putting the Interstate Batteries firesuit on again for Iowa Speedway this weekend.

Erik Jones’ 2015 season has included many firsts. His first full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ride, his first visit to many tracks and, most notably, his first start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

This weekend, Jones is back in familiar territory competing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series 3M 250 at Iowa Speedway in Newton. While Sunday’s race marks his first XFINITY start at the 7/8-mile tri-oval, he has never finished outside the top-10 in three Truck Series races, highlighted by a win last season and runner-up finish in 2013.

A pensive Erik Jones prepares to take names earlier this year at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

A pensive Erik Jones prepares to take names earlier this year at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

During Jones’ last visit to Iowa Speedway, he piloted the No. 51 ToyotaCare Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), the team he’s competing full-time with in the Truck Series this season.

Jones had the best truck for the majority of the race, but fellow competitor Ryan Blaney caught up with him near the end. The pair raced side by side throughout the last 16 laps until Jones edged Blaney to earn his second career Truck Series win.

When Jones returns to Iowa this weekend for his 13th career XFINITY Series race, he brings an impressive resume in the series with one win, three pole awards and five top-five finishes in all. He’ll also have longtime Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) sponsor Interstate Batteries and its Interstate All Battery Center retail stores on his No. 20 Toyota Camry. Two Interstate All Battery Center stores are located just down the road in the Des Moines area, along with the nearby All Battery Center North American distribution center for all 220 stores located in Urbandale.

With Jones’ impressive racing resume, the Texas-based company’s tagline “Outrageously Dependable” is a perfect fit for the 18-year-old driver.

Prior to Jones’ last XFINITY race, which was cut short due to an accident and later engine failure at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, he posted his five top-fives in the series in consecutive fashion, including his first career win at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

Jones led six times for a total of 79 laps during the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas and was able to hold off Sprint Cup regulars Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the win. Jones’ most challenging test came when the race restarted with 26 laps to go. Choosing the inside line on the restart, the rookie had a very fervent Keselowski and Earnhardt Jr. trailing on the high line.

Holding strong on the bottom, Jones was able to clear Keselowski and Earnhardt off turn two with 25 laps to go and never looked back. At 18 years, 10 months and 11 days, Jones became the second-youngest winner at Texas behind Chase Elliott.

Jones is hopeful that his experience, paired with JGR’s winning history at Iowa with a 2014 victory there by Sam Hornish Jr. and a 2010 win by Kyle Busch, will produce another successful result this weekend.

Erik Jones will drive the No. 20 Interstate All Battery Center Toyota Camry in Iowa.

Do you feel more confident heading into Iowa knowing you’ve won at this track, and are you excited to have Interstate Batteries back on board for another NASCAR XFINITY Series race?

“Anytime you go back to a place where you’ve won or had success, it gives you a little bit more confidence. With the XFINITY Series, I feel like we’ve had pretty good speed on the short tracks, so this race will hopefully be one that falls in our wheelhouse. It’ll be cool to have Interstate Batteries back on the car for the second time this year. We’re all really thankful for them for letting us go run this race, so it should be fun.”

You’ve never finished outside of the top-10 at Iowa Speedway. What have you learned during your previous starts, and what do you think the key is to a successful finish?

“Iowa is an interesting track just from the sense that it really works all parts of your race team. It’s got a strong, short-track feel, but it’s got a little bit of a big-track aero feel. We work on a lot of things during practice, mostly just getting through turns one and two good and being able to power through there. It’s a day race, so it’s going to be a little different than what I’m used to in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Joe Gibbs Racing won this race at Iowa last year, so hopefully we can use some of their notes and pick up a few things.”

This weekend at Iowa Speedway marks just your 13th start in the XFINITY Series and you’ve already earned a win, three poles and five top-fives. Why do you think the transition into this series has been so smooth for you?

“I think it has a lot to do with the team at Joe Gibbs Racing and the program we’ve had over there. We’ve gotten a lot better on that side of things from last year. We had fast cars last year, but just not up to the level of some of the other teams. We’ve got good Camrys this year – we’ve had fast ones every time we get to the racetrack. Every week, we’ve unloaded fairly close to where we need to be, so that’s allowed us to test some things that maybe we wouldn’t have had time to do if we were a little farther off. It’s been nice to have such fast racecars and it’s definitely nice for the driver to know you’ve got a shot to win.”

How a battery test can save your bacon

May 13th, 2015 by
Battery trouble? A battery test could have prevented it.

Her: “You have no idea what you’re looking for, do you?”

Picture yourself in the parking lot of your local supermarket. You’ve just done the week’s grocery shopping. You’ve loaded up the trunk, buckled the kids in their car seats, and get ready to head home.

But when you turn the key, nothing. Your car won’t start, the kids are fussing and one of them might need a diaper change. Oh, did we mention it’s 95 degrees and you have frozen foods in the back?

We’ve heard it time and again: When car batteries fail, it’s always at the most inconvenient time. Here’s how to prevent scenes like this.

Get your battery tested

A quick battery test can save you from being stranded somewhere with a dead battery.

A quick battery test can save you from being stranded somewhere with a dead battery.

Routine testing isn’t just for school children. Your battery should be checked often for signs of weakness. We recommend a quick electronic battery test at Interstate All Battery Center (free) or your local Interstate Batteries dealer (prices vary). Many of our dealers include a battery test whenever they change your oil.

A test will show whether your battery is a-OK or on the verge of needing replacement. And replacing a battery before it fails can save your bacon, not to mention your ice cream and milk.

Know the warning signs

Often, a battery will drop subtle hints that bad things are afoot. Here are some signs that your battery may be struggling:

  1. Sluggish start. Your vehicle starts slowly or there is a slight pause or hesitation when starting the engine.
  2. Prolonged inactivity. A battery will slowly lose its charge simply from sitting unused for an extended period of time, especially in hot climates.
  3. Headlights or interior lights left on. Admit it – you’ve done this on accident a time or two. This will slowly drain your battery.
  4. After a jump-start. A failed start could indicate a battery condition that needs to be checked out. Don’t assume that your car will adequately recharge your battery while you drive. If you need to jump-start your car, get the battery checked.

What shortens battery life

Heat, cold and inactivity are a battery’s main adversaries. Although cold weather will gradually reduce the battery’s ability to generate power to start your vehicle, heat accelerates corrosion and other damage to internal battery components. That damage will ultimately reduce the life of your battery.

In other words, extreme heat kills your battery, but you often won’t notice it until the next cold snap.

Another enemy of battery life: too many short trips. By constantly shutting down and restarting your engine, you drain your battery of power.

Also, cleanliness is next to powerliness. OK, that’s not a real word, but stay with us here: Keeping your battery terminals clean and free of corrosion will help provide maximum starting power to your vehicle.

Remember, there’s no such thing as a convenient time for your battery to quit. Get it tested regularly. After you bring in the groceries, of course.

Team Interstate: Impressive Debut, Heartbreaking Finish

18-year-old Erik Jones turned a lot of heads in his Sprint Cup Series debut Saturday night at Kansas Speedway. Unfortunately, a late-race wreck ruined what was an impressive night.

Erik qualified his No. 18 M&M’s Red Nose Day/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry in the 12th position. After losing several spots in the first green-flag run due to technical issues with his radio, he quickly made up lost positions with guidance from spotter Tony Hirschman.

Erik was scored 11th when NASCAR issued a red flag at lap 98 for inclement weather. After a two-hour rain delay, racing resumed and Erik began his charge into the top 10.

He was running fourth on lap 196 when he lost control of his car and spun, making heavy contact with the wall. The team worked fast in the garage to make repairs, and Jones was able to return to the track on lap 221. He finished the race 40th, 25 laps down.

“I just lost it, and it’s too bad,” Erik said.  “I had such a good night going. We had a fast M&M’s Red Nose Day Camry, and it’s just a matter of trying to get a little better on my end and figuring out where the limit is. Unfortunately, we found it there and we’ll try to get a little better and see if we can get another shot in this thing.”

Erik’s Team Interstate colleagues Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin finished sixth, 20th and 41st, respectively.

Jimmie Johnson won the SpongeBob SquarePants 400.

Erik Jones and Team Interstate's results from Kansas.

  • NASCAR Sprint Cup Series – Charlotte Motor Speedway (Non-points Sprint Showdown and Sprint All-Star Race)
  • NASCAR Xfinity Series – Iowa Speedway (Erik Jones will drive the No. 20 Interstate All Battery Center Toyota)
  • Lucas Oil Pro Motocross – Sacramento, Calif.

Team Interstate: Wild Ride in Talladega

David Ragan had the Talladega race circled on his calendar for good reason: He’s won twice at restrictor-plate tracks, and this was his last big hurrah in the No. 18 Pedigree/Interstate Batteries Toyota before moving on to the No. 55 car for the rest of the season.

Unfortunately, “The Big One” struck on lap 47 – a wreck involving 15 of the 43 cars in the field – and David was caught up in it, with his car suffering heavy damage.

“It looked like the 6 (Trevor Bayne) car and maybe another white car got turned sideways down the back straightaway, and we were in the top groove and tried to slow down,” David said. “Someone on our left side just kind of came across our nose. It’s very unfortunate with our Pedigree Toyota. I felt like we had some good speed. Just one of those things at Talladega – if you’re not up in the top-two or three or if you’re not running 38th to 40th, then you’re very subject to being involved in some accidents like that. Just in the wrong place at the wrong time, but had a good run with the 18 guys.

“I’m very thankful for everybody at Joe Gibbs Racing, M&M’s/Mars, Pedigree, SNICKERS, and Interstate Batteries for their support. We had a lot of fun. We didn’t end on a good note, but you have that at Talladega sometimes.”

Erik Jones will take over the No. 18 car this week in Kansas as Kyle Busch continues to recover from injuries suffered at Daytona.

David’s teammates Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards finished 9th, 25th and 32nd, respectively, on Sunday. Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the race.

Team Interstate: Long Day on the Short Track

Team Interstate had what they thought were the perfect setups for racing under the lights at Richmond International Raceway. Unfortunately, heavy rains on Saturday forced NASCAR to postpone the Toyota Owners 400 to Sunday afternoon, which caused the cars to handle much differently than planned.

“It was a disappointing day,” said Team Interstate’s David Ragan, filling in for injured Kyle Busch in the No. 18 M&M’s/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry. “I felt like we were pretty solid on Friday, and obviously a lot has changed since Friday with track conditions and weather. But when they dropped the green flag, we just weren’t as good.”

David finished in 23rd place, two laps behind the leaders. Teammates Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards and Denny Hamlin finished seventh, 19th and 22nd, respectively.

Kurt Busch won the race.
