PHOENIX, Ariz. – In a career best qualifying effort, Terry McMillen positioned his Amalie Oil Top Fuel dragster in the ninth spot for the NHRA Arizona Nationals. Although his weekend ended early with a first round loss to Steve Torrence, McMillen remains encouraged by his teams improvement.
“That was our ninth pass of the year without any preseason testing,” McMillen said. “That’s no excuse. We’ll come up with a race day tune up. My guys are to good not to.”
The second of 23 NHRA Full Throttle races showed dramatic improvement for the Elkhart Indiana based team, which posted career best 60ft elapsed times, the team’s second best elapsed time (3.896) and a career best qualifying effort (9th).
