ATHENS - Sometimes Georgia Bulldogs running back Kendall Milton will get on the loop in Athens and drive to clear his mind.

“I just hit the freeway, and take a little drive,” he said. “Being able to listen to music and enjoy the road it definitely clears you mind.”

Milton has something else on his mind - taking a spin in a high-powered BMW on a closed closed course in Greer, South Carolina later this month. And Milton is giving UGA fans a chance to join him for the day. The Kendall Milton Driving Experience is giving members of The Players Lounge the ability to be paired with Milton at the BMW Performance Driving School on June 26th. 

“It is going to be a fun experience to let loose and be behind the wheel of some fast cars,” the Georgia running back said. “I’m excited to be able to go out there and have fun. It is a blessing to be able to have this opportunity. It would not be possible without The Players Lounge.”

Milton said he’s had a longtime fascination with cars. 

“I would ask for Hot Wheels for Christmas,” he said. “I liked the styles of the cars. As I got older I would watch videos of the cars and learn about the makes of the engines and what goes into the cars. My love for cars has built up since then, and it continues to be a passion for me.”

Milton is entering his third season at Georgia, and the Bulldogs are listed at -210 to win over 10.5 games this season according to FanDuel. He is expected to be one of the Dawgs’ top running backs in 2022 - along with Kenny McIntosh. That duo will have the burden of replacing James Cook and Zamir White. That duo formed one of the best one-two punches in Bulldog history. 

“Kenny and I are pushing ourselves right now,” Milton said. “We are working to better ourselves every day. We are grinding right now to have a breakout season.”

Milton and McIntosh combined for 592 yards on 114 carries in 2021. In the meantime, Milton said he’s eager to take off and put the pedal to the metal on the last Sunday in June. It will fulfill a lifelong dream for the California native.  

“I remember being little, and my parents would let me sit on their lap in the car and control the steering wheel. I remember getting my first car and driving it for the first time. I loved hearing the exhaust and feeling the engine,” he said. 

“That probably figured into my love for cars.”
