Dalton Millican took a different route in life than his father. However, they were both involved in motorsports.
While Clay was making a name for himself on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, the younger Millican was starting out driving the Blue Thunder Monster Truck. He competed on the Monster Jam tour.
Now, he’ll never get another opportunity to drive it again. The younger Millican has passed away.

“It is with extremely heavy hearts that we let you know that late last night we lost our beloved son, Dalton Millican, age 22, in a single-person motorcycle accident close to our hometown of Drummonds, Tenn,” the Millican family said in a statement. “We are heartbroken by the tragic loss to our family. We appreciate all of your love and support as we navigate through the very difficult road ahead. Funeral arrangements are pending and we will announce those once they have been finalized.
“We ask for your continued love and prayers and privacy at this time.”
According to his publicist, the team has not made a decision if they’ll be attending the NHRA national event at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota. She said she’ll keep us posted should they do take the race off.

In addition, Feld Inc., which owns Monster Jam, has yet to make an announcement. If Millican does decide to take some time off from the tour, everybody would understand.
And when he’s willing to return — if he does take time off — then the tour will welcome him back with open arms.
