WATERVLIET, Mich. – NHRA Top Fuel driver Terry McMillen announced today that the team’s quest to make the NHRA Countdown to the Championship would have added support from Lane Automotive subsidiaries Motor State Distributing and Allstar Performance. McMillen’s Amalie Oil / UNOH team has been a Top 10 contender all season long.
“We’re extremely excited about our partnership with Motor State Distributing and Allstar Performance,” McMillen said. “From Street Rods to Hot Rods and from drag strips to circle tracks, they have the parts we all need to go fast.”
“Terry McMillen is a perfect for for our companies,” said Scott Whalstrom, Marketing Manager at Motor State Distributing. “This gives us a great opportunity to expand our brand in the NHRA Drag Racing Series.”
“I had the opportunity to visit with George Lane recently,” McMillen said. “His office is full of cool photos of dragsters he built and raced back in the day. It was awesome to share stories with one of the great innovators of our sport. Plus we met a lot of UNOH graduates working there. It was pretty cool to say the least.”
Motor State Distributing founder George Lane built and raced dragsters in the late 1950’s and while his racing time tapered off with the success of the speed shops, he always remained faithful to his hot rodding roots. He and wife Janet still maintain an interest in the company, but sons Doug and Dave carry on the family tradition of providing quality automotive performance parts and accessories, prompt, courteous service and fair pricing.
Allstar Performance is dedicated to making all aspects of car construction quicker, easier and less expensive. Whether it’s small brackets, linkages, fittings or specialized tools, Allstar Performance has the answers for race car and hot rod builders alike. Many of their “one-off” designs can’t be found anywhere else and are manufactured by skilled craftsman, many of whom are racers themselves.
