CHARLOTTE, NC (April 24, 2016) – Terry McMillen and his Rob Wendland tuned AMALIEⓇ Motor Oil XTERMIGATORⓇ Top Fuel Dragster continued improving on every run during the NHRA 4-Wide Nationals, only to come up short on race day.
“It’s hard not to be disappointed about a first round loss,” McMillen said. “But we’re not going to hang our heads. Especially when we went down the track every time, improved our elapsed time and brought back a happy motor.”
McMillen made consistently improving passes of 3.833, 3.827, 3.822, including a 3.816 in the first round of eliminations.
“I’m really proud of Rob (Wendland, Crew Chief) and our entire crew,” McMillen added. “We’re really starting to gel as a team and Rob is just a few small tweaks from turning this car from a low .80s bracket car into a .70s bracket car. Our splits and incrementals (times) say we’re there. We just need to put it on the scoreboard now.”
Next stop for McMillen and crew is the NHRA Spring Nationals in Baytown, Texas near Houston April 29-May 1. For more information visit NHRA.com
