Elkhart, IN – Terry Mc Millen and his Amalie Oil InstiGator Funny Car powered by TORCO Race Fuels returns to the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan to defend his Thunder National title. The May 14 event is sanctioned by World Alcohol Racers (WAR) and sponsored by TORCO Racing Fuels, the official racing fuel of the IHRA and WAR.
“We are expecting an all-out assault, a war and we’re not taking prisoners! We expect to leave Martin victorious,” explained Mc Millen. The Thunder National WAR will be re-televised on ESPN2 and Inside Drag Racing. “The U.S. 131 Motorsports Park is an outstanding racing facility and this event brings out some of the toughest competition in Alcohol Funny Car. We’re excited to defend our title, not only for the competition and the fans, but also to support our sponsors and their strong relationship with this facility. We consider this facility to be our home track.” The 2004 Thunder National win propelled Mc Millen to a semi-final appearance later that season at the IHRAs 23rd Annual TORCO Racing Fuels Northern Nationals and a career best 3rd place points finish on the IHRA circuit.
The U.S. 131 Motorsports Park, one of the nations premiere drag racing facilities, announced earlier this year it would become official distributors of Amalie Oil. Torco Racing Fuels has be providing a complete line of racing fuels for many years. “I’ve always said that the Hoosier Thunder Motorsports team has some of the best partners in the business, this just solidifies that,” said Mc Millen. “This means all year long racers in Martin can get the same quality TORCO Racing Fuel and Amalie Oil that we use in the InstiGator.”
The Hoosier Thunder Motorsports team races with top tiered, high performance companies like Amalie Oil, TORCO Racing Fuels, Flatout Gaskets, NGK Spark Plugs, MSD, Performance Graphics, Powershield Coatings and Crane Cams.
