“Topeka was good to us last year,”McMillen said. “This is where we got our first round win last year and stomped that monkey off of our back.”
The semifinal appearance in Atlanta put McMillen back in the points chase and currently in the top ten in points. “Our team has the confidence now and that’s half the battle to going rounds,” McMillen continued. “Last year it seemed like it was our team and team Kalitta’s David Grubnic fighting it out for that last spot in the countdown. It was tough enough last year, but I think it’s already tougher this year. There’s at least three or four more solid teams fighting for that spot. The only way to stay ahead is to keep winning rounds. That’s our focus right now.”
