Millican, Elvis, and 104+ Performance Additives to Reunite at NHRA Season Finale in Pomona Lehman Racing Continues Partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises

Chicago - November 4, 2004 Clay Millican, Lehman Racing, and 104+ Performance Additives will continue their partnership with Memphis- based Elvis Presley Enterprises by racing the team's special Elvis Presley-themed dragster at the final NHRA race of the 2004 season, the Auto Club of Southern California Finals in Pomona, Calif., on November 11-14.

Millican raced the Elvis dragster in NHRA competition in Memphis and Indianapolis earlier this season, advancing to the semi-finals in front of his hometown crowd in Memphis, and moving on to the quarterfinals in Indy. Additionally, the car was unveiled during Elvis Week at Graceland with Millican performing an 8,000 horsepower burnout down Elvis Presley Boulevard in his Top Fuel dragster. This was the first legal Top Fuel burnout on a U.S. city street in over 17 years.

"I am so excited that our team gets to race this Elvis dragster for the season finale," said Millican. "The relationship that we built with Elvis Presley Enterprises through this special themed car has been a lot of fun and I look forward to getting the fans in California excited about the 50 Years of Rock 'n Roll celebration."

Earlier this season, Millican and Team 104+ Performance Additives/Lehman Racing advanced to three consecutive NHRA final rounds at the national events in Houston, Atlanta, and Bristol. He has raced in nine of the 22 NHRA races that have taken place this season, holding an impressive 14th position in the POWERade Top Fuel points standings despite racing in the league on a part-time basis. Should he move up to 13th place in the points standings after the Auto Club of Southern California Finals, it would be the highest NHRA POWERade points finish of his career.

Millican is a native of the Memphis area, and is a four- time IHRA Top Fuel Champion. He recently clinched his fourth IHRA title and finished the season with a victory at the IHRA World Finals in Rockingham, N.C.
