A GUY NEVER FORGETS HIS FIRST
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.
