Denver, CO (July 23, 2017) – Clay Millican drove the Parts Plus/Great Clips/University of Northwestern Ohio Top Fuel dragster to the quarterfinals at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals in Denver, Colorado. “Our intention was to sweep both mountains. We had a really solid and consistent race car in qualifying. This thing just kept going right down the race track,” Millican said. “Yesterday we went 3.79 twice. We went out there first round and this thing goes right down the race track and runs a third 3.79.” Millican came into race day qualified No. 8 with an elapsed time of 3.795 at 309.77 mph. In Round One he faced off against No. 9 qualifier Bob Vandergriff Jr. Millican left the starting line first and kept the lead the entire race and won with a 3.798/315.19 to 3.866/311.99. Despite that time being the second fastest time of the round, Millican did not get lane choice going into second round. Round Two, Millican faced Leah Pritchett. Millican had a slight advantage off the start, but the car shut off early after a problem in the engine and Pritchett took the win with a 3.817/320.28 to 3.927/254.47. “We left the starting line first and we were ahead at half-track. Unfortunately, we broke. We hurt the car. But you know what. We have a really good race car. We’re bringing the Shark Week car to Sonoma and we’re just going to keep chomping at the competition,” Millican said. Millican is currently No. 7 in the Mello Yello NHRA Drag Racing Series points standings in Top Fuel dragster. Next in the Western Swing for the Stringer Performance team is the Toyota NHRA Somona Nationals in Sonoma, California.
