TOPEKA, Kan. (May 20, 2012) – They did all they could do – it just wasn’t enough. Terry McMillen and the Amalie Oil/UNOH/Allstar Performance Top Fuel team registered a new career best elapsed time of 3.847 seconds; however his new best wasn’t enough to upset Brandon Berstein’s 3.787 elapsed time.
“We brought a bigger knife to the fight, but it happened to be another gun fight,” a dejected McMillen said shortly after the first round loss.
“Our car is really happy up until about 660ft,” McMillen added. “We’ve just got a little bug to figure out for that last 400ft. We’ve got to do it quickly too. With seven other teams dropping seventies on the track at will in the first round it’s real apparent that we have to pick up our pace. There’s no room for error in NHRA Drag Racing.”
The Elkhart, Ind. and Watervliet, Mich. area will have an opportunity to meet Terry McMillen and the Amalie Oil/UNOH/Allstar Performance Top Fuel Dragster at events next week.
