Parts Plus Continues Primary Sponsorship Of NHRA Top-Fuel Driver Clay Millican

“We’re pleased to announce our continued sponsorship of Clay Millican as the Parts Plus Top Fuel team gears up for a championship run in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Series,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Automotive Distribution Network.

 

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. – Parts Plus announced it has reached an agreement to remain the primary sponsor of Top Fuel driver Clay Millican for a fourth straight NHRA season.

“We’re pleased to announce our continued sponsorship of Clay Millican as the Parts Plus Top Fuel team gears up for a championship run in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Series,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Automotive Distribution Network. “Complemented by a first-rate motorsports marketing program, which includes nationwide hospitality events and promotional opportunities with our primary manufacturer partners, our ongoing partnership with Millican ensures that our Parts Plus members continue to effectively reach the end user — the professional who throws away the box.”

This year, the Parts Plus Top Fuel team joined Tuttle Motorsports (TMS) as Dexter Tuttle returns to Top-Fuel Racing. “We are very happy to have Clay driving our Top Fuel car in 2014,” said Tuttle, a motorsports veteran who owns two Texas-based firms near Fort Worth. “We have all new parts we recently acquired from Don Schumacher Racing, and having a great driver in Clay Millican is a great way to return to the sport.”

“Our entire team is thrilled to be back with Parts Plus for a fourth season,” Millican added. “The support from Parts Plus and the manufacturer partners was absolutely amazing last season, and we’re focused on winning a championship as part of TMS in 2014.”
