“Our guys really came together this weekend and the car responded to their teamwork,” McMillen said. “It’s really inspiring to see the consistency in this race car.”
McMillen made four consistent passes during qualifying before ending the fourth session with a 3.815 second elapsed time. Good enough to hold the 14th spot in a field where 19 cars made attempts to qualify.
Race day would see McMillen paired with Brittany Force. Force is currently third in the NHRA Countdown to the Championship. “We came into Sunday pretty jacked up,” McMIllen said. “We were confident in our setup and thought this might me the perfect time to break into the seventies (3.79 or better).”
“An extra nut on the clutch and a new tire, we needed one not both,: McMillen shared. “But it was a good call. We learned something today. Something we’ll be able to use to be more competitive in these types of conditions.”
McMillen and team are now headed to Las Vegas where the official team resort is Tahiti Village. Fans, friends and guests are invited to come by Tahiti Village on Wednesday October 28th from 11am-2pm to see Terry McMillen and the AMALIEⓇ Motor Oil INSTIGATOR Top Fuel Dragster. Tahiti Village is located at 7200 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
