THE MILLER’S STORY
The Cornfield 500 started as a small race on an old cornfield with a few friends and the idea of having some fun in some old beater cars on Labor Day Weekend in 2000. With a few changes to comply with insurance, zoning, taxes, and many continued improvements, the Cornfield 500, is a great place to hang out on Labor Day Weekend, for the whole family. They try to make your visit on Historic Route 6, in Columbus PA, a great get-a-way. There is still primitive camping, but they are working on funding to help develop a Baker Hill Campground in the near future, to make your stay a little more comfortable.Features:

Even though there were some personal and financial setbacks, in the past years, Blair & Sabrena Miller, who met in 2003, in the woods, hunting deer, will continue to bring the community and out of town, or even out of state visitors, a top quality, have a great time, entertainment for all, Professional Redneck Show!
If you didn't already know, the Miller’s were married on July 5, 2008, in front of 800 guests, and were filmed for Season 2, Episode 5, for My Big Redneck Wedding on CMT. They continue to talk with certain TV Networks on future shows in the makings, like the, "Work Hard, Play Harder" show. They have been in a couple sports shows, outdoor shows, and even helped in the production of a Country Music Video, performed by Nashville recording artist, Michelle Murray, titled, “Love Me Like You Love Your Truck”.
Also of Interest - The Guinness World Record Monster Truck Jump of 2010, by youngest owner/operator, Joey Sylvester and his Bad Habit, in the Miller's front yard, is in the 2013 Book. The second record, also by Joey on the Miller’s property in 2013, was amazing and is currently in the 2017 Guinness Book, page 130. The video, filmed by Nitro Circus’ film crew, is on the opening page of their website. Look up Joey Sylvester to see him now, as he still drives for Monster Jam. He has opened his own Coffee House too called, High Octane Coffee Company in OH. If he is not racing or performing somewhere, you will see him at the Cornfield 500, during the Labor Day Weekend.
Their Ultimate Goal on the Farm is to improve the quality of this show, and future shows, by improving the property, and looking for funding from Corporations and Sponsors, that can help them buy equipment, and develop the land into a race park and event center, with a future Hotel/Restaurant/Banquet Hall, designed in the Old West design. Their plans are to have more events, and keep bringing in tourist from other states, and keep them entertained for a few days, so they can venture into the surrounding areas. This will help community businesses, and they plan to hire local contractors, and buy local goods in that process.
The Millers are Very Charitable People Past donations/funding to three local Fire Departments by Blair Miller, and his two businesses, from 1995 to 2010, where he had donated over $100,000 in services for septic cleaning, and paid approx. $38,000 out of his own pocket to pay for their septic disposal at the plant. Also, approx. $10,000 in monies was donated to the Fire Departments who helped us at the event. The Fire Police also got about $3,000 in monies for helping with traffic control.
The Millers are dedicated to helping Hunt of a Lifetime and Veterans. In the past few years, they have raised about $10,000 at our events. They continue to donate, and find ways to raise funding for them, like the Action Trackchair for Arianna Fundraiser they just launched, on their website.
