McMillen made solid runs to qualify his dragster 11th for Sunday eliminations and backed up his qualifying effort with a 3.87 second, 323 MPH pass in a first round loss to Steve Torrence.
“I’m really proud of my guys,” McMillen said. “We’ve overcome a lot of adversity to get where we’re at today, but my guys just keep turning those Genius Tool wrenches and we’re getting closer with each turn.
“Although we hated to lose that first round our car made it down the track four out of five times this weekend – all with solid numbers, McMillen continued. “We’re really, really close to running some numbers that will go rounds. We’ve truly found some consistency that I think will pay some solid dividends over these next five races to make a run at the Countdown.”
