Torco's Competition Plus readers perusing the CSR Eastern Spring Time
Nationals entry list aren’t seeing things. That is Clay Millican’s
name on the Top Fuel driver roster.
And yes, one of the sport’s most fan-friendly drivers and tough
competitors will indeed be making test runs in the ESTN, March 6-10, at
South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Ga., near Valdosta. But
before your thoughts wander any farther – no, Millican will not be
racing in NHRA’s AC-Delco Gatornationals at Gainesville, Fla., the
following weekend. Or any other weekend, for that matter.
“My bosses said to go test and be prepared, so that’s what we’re doing
– getting ready to test,” Millican, of Drummonds, Tenn., said Monday,
as he took timeout from helping load the hauler.
Millican’s competitive season was put on ice when team owner Evan Knoll
took a sabbatical from team sponsorships this year. Millican’s team,
however, remains intact and anxious to see action, albeit making test
laps at South Georgia Motorsports Park.
