SONOMA, Calif. – With the midway point of the NHRA season in the rearview mirror Terry McMillen, driver and owner of the AMALIE® Motor Oil INSTIGATOR Top Fuel team and Rob Wendland, Crew Chief for the team decided it was time to make some changes.
“We’re seeing baby step improvements,” McMillen said. “We’re just not getting the improvements as quick as we want. We’ve got the right crew chief in Rob (Wendland), we just need to get the right supporting staff around him. We’ve got some young hard working guys that want to be good, we’ve just got to work with them to get them coached up.”
Wendland and McMillen announced that beginning in Seattle, Bob Peck would be the team’s full-time Assistant Crew Chief. Peck has worked with the Terry McMillen Racing this season in a consultant role and in the past has worked with Joe Amato, Bob Vandergriff, John Force as car chief and as a crew chief for Cori McClenathan.
