A GUY NEVER FORGETS HIS FIRST

Drag Racer - - QUARTER-MILE UPDATE -

ONCE UPON A TIME, IHRA PRO­DUCED SOME VERY SERIOUS NITRO COMPETITION, AND CLAY MILLICAN WAS THE UNDISPUTED KING OF T/F. He was the win­ningest driver in the sanc­tion­ing body's his­tory with 51 event crowns, lead­ing to six con­sec­u­tive world cham­pi­onships. Alas, in NHRA competition, the tale was very dif­fer­ent. In 19 years,

1,228 races and at least nine fi­nal round ap­pear­ances, de­spite strong per­for­mances, Clay was thwarted. At NHRA's re­cently con­tested Bris­tol na­tional event, he fi­nally broke the curse, beat­ing Leah Pritch­ett to cap­ture his first NHRA crown. Con­grats to Clay, team and loyal spon­sors.
