Terry is one of those drivers whop pursued a dream against all odds and adversity and never gave up. He came into Top Fuel racing in the early part of the 2000s with more dreams than luck. Almost every week, he was on the highlight reel for one reason or another, and usually not good. Slowly but surely, the Amalie Oil-sponsored driver began to get the breaks and eventually won the crown jewel of drag races at the Top Fuel 2018 NHRA U.S. Nationals. A fan favorite, McMillen is a driver to whom many fans gravitate toward. Consider us at CompetitionPlus.com fans as well. – Editor
Family is everything to me. I am thankful for my lovely wife, Cori, who supports me and my love of racing. God has blessed me with four incredible boys, Brian, Jason, Andy, and Cameron, and I thank Him every day for them. And of course, I will always be thankful for my mom Mary and my dad Warren. Not only did they raise me with great values, but they taught me to follow my dreams and never give up. I am thankful for the weekends I spent working on cars with my dad. My love of drag racing started by spending time in the garage.
I have had the support of a lot of friends over the years. I am very blessed to be surrounded by so many great people. This dream of racing wouldn’t have been able to come true without their help. Whether helping out at the shop, making cold calls to potential sponsors, or cooking for the team, I am very grateful for everything my friends have done for me. There are too many to list, but I know they know who they are.
I am thankful for the time during the offseason that I get to spend with my family and friends. I am thankful for the holiday traditions and memories that I make with my family. I am thankful that on Thanksgiving, I will go over to my sister’s house with my seven brothers and sisters and their families and catch up on everything that I missed while I was away racing.
The picture hanging in the lounge of Terry McMillen’s hauler serves as a stark reminder. Drag racing can be a cruel and unforgiving sport. But so can life. #dragracingnews #dragracing #nhra – CLICK THIS LINK FOR THE FULL STORY – https://t.co/fl0HgbBMX4 pic.twitter.com/KZVB5uqj84
