As the 2018 NHRA Top Fuel season comes to a close, the Stringer Performance Racing team and Clay Millican have already begun looking to the future. The team has decided to reunite Millican with crew chief Mike Kloeber for the 2019 season. Kloeber and Millican worked together in the IHRA and built an impressive record together. The duo won six world championships and 50 events in just seven years. That’s the kind of success Straightline Strategy Group, the ownership group behind the Parts Plus Top Fuel Dragster driven by Clay Millican, hopes will translate to the NHRA.

Millican and Kloeber Have Their Eyes on the Prize

Kloeber says that his own expectations for next season are sky high: “Getting a call from Doug Stringer with the opportunity to race with this team provides a path to conclude some unfinished business for us all — winning a NHRA Mello Yello Championship,” said Kloeber. Millican enters the final weekend of the season in second place, having notched two wins in 2018. He is fully aware of the implications of bringing a winning formula back together. “I’m excited to go back and work with Mike again,” said Millican. “We have a lot of history together and are looking to make more.”

The Bigger Picture

Doug Stringer, owner of Stringer Performance, sees the hiring of Kloeber as part of the bigger picture for the racing outfit, which includes as one of its proud sponsors. “Sometimes life comes full circle, and we believe our company’s strong ties to faith and family along with an agenda built on trust, passion, and desire with the ability to weather storms brought this opportunity together,” said Stringer. “Mike and Clay have had tremendous success in the past, and Mike fully embraces our team’s platform and goals.”
