Millican Hopes to Wrap Up Season with 7th Consecutive Rockingham at IHRA World Finals
Chicago - October 18, 2004 Clay Millican of Team Werner/Lehman Racing, the 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 IHRA Top Fuel Champion and winningest professional driver in IHRA history, will look for his seventh straight victory at the Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, N.C., on October 22-24 when he competes at the IHRA World Finals. No driver has ever won seven straight races at one racetrack.
Millican recently clinched an unprecedented fourth consecutive IHRA Top Fuel Championship at the IHRA World Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio with Team Werner. He has a total of 36 career Top Fuel victories in just five full seasons on the IHRA circuit, and has gone undefeated in Rockingham since 2001.
"Now that the championship is clinched, I just want to go out there and have some fun," said Millican. "All of the pressure is off, so we can just put on a great show for the fans and hope for our seventh win of the year."
Millican and Team Werner have qualified in the number one position at every IHRA race in which they have competed this season, and have set numerous track elapsed time and speed records on their way to six event victories. The team will look to get their seventh and final victory of the season at the World Finals, which is the last stop on the 12- race IHRA circuit in 2004.
In his last race, the IHRA World Nationals in Norwalk, Millican advanced to the final round of eliminations, where he was narrowly defeated by Doug Foley. It marked Millican's eighth IHRA final of the season. He has amassed an impressive final round winning percentage of 85.7%, and a round winning percentage of 87.7%.
