NEW INDY SPONSOR FOR CLAY MILLICAN
Clay Millican and Kenny Koretsky’s Top Fuel team will have more “Motorvation” than usual when they continue their quest for a National Hot Rod Association victory at the 52nd Mac Tools U.S. Nationals, Friday through Monday.
Mark Pickens, owner of Motorvation Automotive Performance Products, and Koretsky announced Motorvation will sponsor Millican for NHRA’s oldest, richest and most prestigious race.
The popular, effervescent Millican, of Drummonds, Tenn., is a five-time IHRA champion with an unprecedented 46 career victories. His motivation, however, is to find his way to the NHRA winner’s circle.
“I’m excited to have Mark and Motorvation, a local company from Memphis, involved with our team,” said Millican. “They are getting into drag racing in a pretty big way. I know Mark and all his employees are excited, too. I hope the experience pays off for them and they want to go drag racing more often.”
Pickens said he chose Koretsky’s team because “it is a proven championship team driven by the best interview in Top Fuel, Clay Millican. Motorvation is looking to further its name brand recognition and reach further into NHRA’s ever-growing fan base.”
Motorvation Automotive Performance Products manufactures and sell performance chips, modules and handheld programmers for domestic cars, trucks, SUVs and light-duty vehicles that enhance both performance and fuel economy.
Pickens also is a racer. He is currently driving in the Top Sportsman category and he is working on obtaining a Pro Stock license for the 2007 season.
Millican and the new-look Motorvation/Werner Enterprises/Koretsky Motorsports dragster will make its first appearance in Friday night’s 6:15 p.m. qualifying session.
