Event 23 of 24 (Las Vegas II)
Countdown Event 5 of 6
The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
November 1-3, 2019

Qualified: No. 11 (3.726 E.T. at 325.22 MPH)

The Results:
E1: 3.908 E.T. at 318.69 MPH defeated by Terry McMillen 3.869 E.T. at 310.55 MPH

Race Recap:
In what was billed as Top Fuel’s ‘marquee match-up,’ Antron Brown faced Terry McMillen in the first round on Sunday morning. Both Brown and his opponent were nearly even out of the gate, but Brown hazed the tires almost immediately. The veteran driver masterfully pedaled it and got his Matco Tools Diagnostics machine to recover instantaneously, but he wasn’t able to chase down McMillen, who had already powered to a sizeable lead.

Quotable:
“We learned a lot. The car is definitely leaving the starting line like we want it to. We were aggressive that lap against Terry (McMillen). They ran great all weekend and had lane choice. We were going to try and run a high .60 lap, and it didn’t hold. We’re looking forward to Pomona to keep working on a package to come out strong next year.”
