“I can’t thank the entire Parts Plus family enough for the support, and I want to give a big shout-out to the manufacturer partners who provide the parts that power the quickest dragster on the planet – we did this together,” said Millican. “It’s very special to return to the same track where I ran my first Top Fuel event in 1998 and win 20 years later.”
