POMONA, Calif. — Terry McMillen’s Amalie Oil / UNOH Top Fuel Dragster crew will sleep in comfort and ride in style thanks to two southern California companies.
Ontario Grand Inn & Suites and Diamond Honda have partnered with McMillen for this weekend’s 51st annual NHRA Winternationals. The new relationships are already special to McMillen.
“Something like this really makes me realize how special southern California really is,” McMillen said. “The extended drag racing community reaches out beyond traditional motorsports sponsors here. These two companies have leaders that love drag racing and their support means a lot to our team.”
The Ontario Grand Inn & Suites is known for spacious rooms and friendly staff and McMillen’s crew would agree. “When my guys arrived they actually called me to make sure it was the right place. It’s the nicest lodging our team has ever had. It’s a great way to start the season.”
Diamond Honda of Puente Hills will provide McMillen’s team with a Honda Odyssey this week. McMillen was impressed with the family owned dealership. “As soon as you drive on the lot you realize there’s something special about Diamond Honda,” McMillen said. “When we met the sales manager, Vic Simonian, you could tell he was committed to serving people. He took care of us right away and made sure we had everything we needed to be successful.”
