Great Clips/Parts Plus Top Fuel Dragster pilot Clay Millican is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday night at the 33rd annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. The Drummonds, Tennessee native went 3.726 at 328.54 mph near Dallas.
Millican is looking to claim his ninth No. 1 qualifier of the season. If he is able to claim his ninth No. 1 qualifier of the season on Saturday, it would mark his 19th No. 1 qualifier in his career.

I really didn’t think we were going to go .72 tonight. What David Grubnick (crew chief) is doing right now is totally impressive and the kids putting this together are unbelievable.”
