Millican and Team Werner to Race at NHRA K&N Filters SuperNationals in Englishtown

Chicago - June 14, 2005 Clay Millican of Team Werner/Kenny Koretsky Motorsports has added the NHRA K&N Filters SuperNationals to his 2005 schedule. The race will take place at the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J., on June 16-19.

"I am really excited that we added this race to our schedule," said Millican. "We have done very well here in the past and I'm excited about our first NHRA race with Kenny Koretsky Motorsports."

Last week it was announced that Kenny Koretsky Motorsports acquired Lehman Racing from Peter Lehman, Millican's former team owner. The team won its first race under the new ownership, the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Mopar Canadian Nationals in Grand Bend, Ont., on June 12, and will look to do well against a strong field of NHRA competitors this weekend.

Millican has raced in three NHRA national events thus far in 2005, with his best finish coming at the Mac Tools Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla., where he advanced to the semi-final round. In addition to the Gatornationals, Millican also raced in the season-opener in Pomona, Calif., and the O'Reilly Spring Nationals in Houston.

2003 marks the last time that Millican raced in Englishtown, where he qualified in the number two position and advanced to the quarterfinals. He also achieved the fifth quickest elapsed time of his career in that race with a 4.538 second pass down the quarter-mile drag strip.

[Gainesvillecar05.jpg] Millican currently holds the number 17 position in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel points standings despite only racing in three of the 10 national events that have taken place this season. He hopes to move up in the standings with a strong showing at the K&N Filters SuperNationals.

Millican plans to race in approximately six more NHRA national events in 2005 following the event in Englishtown. In addition to his limited NHRA schedule, Millican is the four-time IHRA Top Fuel Champion and winningest professional driver in IHRA history with 41 Top Fuel career victories to his name.
