CONCORD, N.C. – Terry McMillen piloted his Amalie Oil/UNOH/Motor State Distributing Top Fuel Dragster to a career best performance during the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals. McMillen used his 3.85-seconds at 321.50 mph Friday run to qualify 9th for the quickest Top Fuel field in NHRA history.
McMillen faced Rod Fuller in a first round rematch of Indianapolis – this time with Fuller taking the win. Fuller posted a winning 3.81 pass to McMillen’s 3.88. “We brought a knife to a gun fight this morning,” McMillen explained shortly after his loss. “The only good news is that we made a decent pass and brought back a happy motor. We made it down the track three out of the five passes – all with solid passes in the 3.80s. I think we have something to work with in Dallas next week.”
McMillen will have the Amalie Oil/UNOH/Motor State Distributing Top Fuel Dragster on special display at the 301st Fighter Wing in Fort Worth, Texas this Thursday.
