Never LiftClay Millican, the IHRA four-time Top Fuel World Champion from Drummonds, Tennessee, was racing Bruce Litton at the Dukes of Hazzard Motor City Nationals in Milan, Michigan, when his dragster flipped back on its wing then over on its top. At the starting line there was some tire shake but it smoothed out, so Clay stayed on the fuel, trying to make a good run. At half-track, the front end lifted at over 200 mph causing a spectacular blowover. The dragster slid through the finish line on its lid, and when the track safety crew arrived, Clay was himself, making jokes with a smile.
