BRAINERD, Minn. – Terry McMillen drove his AMALIE® Motor Oil INSTIGATOR Top Fuel Dragster to a season best 3.821 in a losing effort to Steve Torrence’s 3.733 in the opening round here in Brainerd. The weekend was full of new NHRA records in both Top Fuel and Funny Car.
“We’re still a team in transition,” McMillen said after the loss. “I’m real proud of the way these guys are coming together. We’re picking away at it and getting really consistent. We’re making consistent runs in the mid .80s and today we got down to the low .80s. We’re starting to give Rob (Wendland – Crew Chief) the same car round after round and now he’s getting excited about tuning it up to go fast. We’re all really excited about getting to the U.S. Nationals in Indy.”
Now McMillen turns his sights to the Traxxas Shootout voting which begins Sunday immediately after the race.
