South Bend, Ind. – Clean Seal, Inc. today announced a partnership with Hoosier Thunder Motorsports. Hoosier operates an 8000 horse-power competitive Top Fuel Dragster capable of traveling 1000 feet in less than four seconds. The dragster is owned and driven by Terry McMillen of Elkhart, Indiana. Using a specialized racing fuel the dragster gobbles up 13-14 gallons of the Nitro methane every speed run down the track. At the end of 1000 feet, the dragster is traveling in excess of 320 miles an hour!
McMillen and his dragster have become well-known celebrities on ESPN TV. The team has become quite successful promoting their dragster and the sport drag racing. Terry and the Hoosier Thunder team will be competing in some 23 NHRA races around the U.S. this season from Florida to California and race tracks in between. During their “spare” time between races, Terry and the team are frequently seen visiting hospitalized children in local hospitals.
“We’re excited to be a part of this exhilarating sport,” stated Bill Dawson VP/GM at Clean Seal. “We’ve watched Terry ever since the days when he was driving a Top Fuel Funny Car in the early 90’s and he’s been improving ever since. With his plans to place a second dragster in his stable, we are expecting big things,” Dawson continued.
