Amalie Motor Oil has announced an extended partnership with Terry McMillen Racing. This news comes one day before the 50th anniversary of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida this weekend.

The partnership will now go through the 2023 season. McMillen and Amalie Motor Oil will be partnered together for 23-years at the end of this current agreement.

“This has been an amazing relationship and we’ve always been proud to be part of the AMALIE Family,” said Terry McMillen. “We love representing the Barkett family and the employees and all of the AMALIE customers and partners. We’re looking forward to the next four years and beyond.”

McMillen will now be in an exclusive club with multi-decade sponsorships. He joins Kenny Bernstein (Budweiser 30-years), Richard Petty (STP 28-years), John Force (Castrol 15-years), and Dale Earnhardt Sr. (GM 15-years). 

With this deal, it is believed to be one of the longest active sponsorships in motorsports. 

“Just like AMALIE’s slogan the AMALIE/McMillen Sponsorship is Better than it has to be…,” said Harry Barkett, President of AMALIE Oil Company.

McMillen had a career-best second qualifying position at Phoenix. He went to the quarterfinals of that race, before losing to Leah Pritchett. 

She went 3.731 to McMillen’s 5.011. 

In the season-opener, McMillen went to the semi-finals. The two-time national event winner lost to Doug Kalitta in the semi-finals. 

The Michigan native went 3.708 to the Indiana native’s 3.706. 

“Rob Wendland (Crew Chief) and this team have done a lot of work in the off season,” McMillen said. “We’re really seeing that hard work payoff at the track. We’ve set and reset our career best numbers at Pomona and Phoenix and with the conditions looking good here in Gainesville we’re expecting more of the same here.

“Rob’s still working on the tune-up, so we think there’s a lot more that we can accomplish. I can’t think of anything better right now that handing AMALIE that trophy on Sunday after we win the race.”
