    "ROCK" Solid Determination For Mc Millen

    Terry Mc Millen and the Amalie Oil InstiGator Funny Car, powered
    by Torco Race Fuels, race into Rockingham North Carolina for the 35th
    Annual IHRA Spring Nationals (April 22-24) with "rock" solid
    determination for a win. Mc Millen brings the momentum of a final round
    appearance at the Amaile Oil Texas Nationals contested earlier this
    month in San Antonio.

    The Rockingham Dragway ("The ROCK") is the second stop on the 12
    race Hooters Racing Series and one of IHRAs fastest tracks. Last year's
    race saw three world records reset during the event. "There's no doubt
    that we'll see some great times and speeds at "The ROCK" again this
    year," stated Mc Millen. "We're producing more horsepower than we ever
    have with these Crane Cams, I expect we'll have some fast passes."

    Just seven points out of first place, Mc Millen hopes to improve
    on the best start of his Funny Car career. Last year, Mc Millen
    qualified sixth at "The ROCK" and raced to a semi final appearance
    before bowing out to event winner and 5-time IHRA Champion Mark Thomas.
    Co-Crew Chief Tad "TV TAD" Heflick thinks his team is ready. "We're
    working as hard as anyone right now." Fellow tuner, Co-Crew Chief Brent
    "Skinny" Lidgard agrees, "We stayed in Texas an extra day just to test.
    We've improved our 60ft times and that will pay dividends in

    "The incremental improvements that we are seeing is very
    encouraging and exciting," exclaimed team co-owner Rhonda Mc Millen.
    "I'm not a fortune teller, but I see 'iron' in our future, " she said
    (referring to the IHRA Iron Man trophy). "He can't elude us much

    Terry Mc Millen added, "Our success can be contributed to the
    outstanding help from companies like Amalie Oil, Torco Race Fuels,
    Flatout Gaskets, NGK Spark Plugs, MSD, Vintage Trailers, Performance
    Graphics, Powershield Coatings and Crane Cams, we couldn't do this
    without them."

    Terry Mc Millen is a veteran IHRA driver. He and his wife Rhonda
    are team owners of Hoosier Thunder Motorsports, a multi-car drag racing
    team based in Elkhart, IN. Mc Millen, a fan favorite in the Hooters IHRA
    Drag Racing series, competes in the 12 IHRA events contested in the US
    and Canada. Terry and the InstiGator Funny Car are featured in the IHRA
    Professional Drag Racing video game for XBOX, PlayStation2, PlayStation
    and PC . Terry is available for interviews and appearances.
