Millican Holds Number Six Spot in Top Fuel Qualifying at NHRA U.S. Nationals Two Sessions Left Before Monday's Eliminations
Indianapolis - September 4, 2004 After three Top Fuel qualifying sessions, Clay Millican of Team 104+ Performance Additives/Lehman Racing has piloted his team's special Elvis-themed dragster to the number six qualifying spot at the NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, with two more qualifying sessions scheduled to take place on Sunday.
"Racing in Indy is the ultimate experience," said Millican. "This race has so much history and I am honored to be racing here among the very best, especially with Elvis on our car. He loved fast cars and we are both from the Memphis area, so it has been a lot of fun to have a legend like him on our car."
Millican's best qualifying pass thus far came on Friday night when he blasted down the quarter mile drag strip with an elapsed time of 4.623 at 303.16 mph.
Millican is currently 14th in the 2004 NHRA Top Fuel points standings after racing in just seven of the 17 national events that have taken place this season. The U.S. Nationals mark Millican's eighth NHRA race in 2004, and he plans to race in two to three more NHRA national events this season. In addition to his NHRA schedule, Millican is also going for his fourth consecutive Top Fuel title in the IHRA with Team Werner/Lehman Racing.
Earlier this season, Millican and Team 104+ Performance Additives advanced to three straight NHRA final rounds at the national events in Houston, Bristol, and Atlanta. They hope to get their first-ever NHRA Top Fuel victory at the U.S. Nationals this weekend.
