Millican teams up with Valvoline for influencer event…
Nobody can say Clay Millican doesn’t know how to stay busy! After racing to the finals last weekend in Charlotte, Millican will be pit stopping his way to Houston for this weekend’s Spring Nationals.
One of his biggest stops will be in Lexington, Kentucky where Millican will meet with representatives from team sponsor Valvoline as a part of the company’s “Influencer” event. Millican will participate in a Team Valvoline Racing panel discussion on Thursday, which is something he is very excited to do. Speaking about Valvoline’s involvement in his career Millican said, “They’re a huge supporter of the race team and have been for a long time. I am very excited to have the chance to talk to people on their team I’ve known for years, meet some of their new team members and to see their facilities.”
Lights, Camera, Ask Clay’s Crew…
The camera lens is turning in the Stringer Performance shop. Clay Millican’s crew will be featured in an upcoming social media video that will highlight crew members answering questions from fans submitted to the Parts Plus Twitter account @PartsPlusHQ using the #AskClaysCrew.
Highlights of the video will be released leading up to the Kansas Nationals in Topeka. Release of the full video will be announced with the highlight reels. In addition to the crew focused video, the team will also launch a biography section on StringerPerformance.com to further highlight the incredible people who make each weekend at the track possible for our team!
Thank You Stylists…
Clay Millican and the entire Stringer Performance crew are sending out a special “Thank You” from the race track this weekend to all of the Great Clips stylists across the country! The team will be racing with a special “We Love Stylist” decal on the Parts Plus/Great Clips/UNOH dragster.
Millican and the Stringer Performance team will also be joining fellow Great Clips Racing teammates in sending out special messages on social media to show their appreciation.
Quote from Clay Millican on the weekend ahead in Houston…
“Houston was really great to us last season. I have been to a final round there before and after last weekend in Charlotte I think it’s something we can do again. One of the best things about this track is its history. Every time I think about racing in Texas, I always think of Eddie Hill the Texas Top Fuel guy. It may not make a lot of sense to other people, but that’s what sticks in my head especially when we’re going to a place with so much history.”
