Bob Vandergriff Racing is pleased to announce a multi-year agreement with Parts Plus that will include the 2013, 2014 and 2015 NHRA Mello Yellow Racing Series. Veteran Driver Clay Millican also joins Bob Vandergriff Racing and team owner Bob Vandergriff couldn't be more excited to be joining forces.

"Our goal has been to add a full-time team to complement our C&J Energy Services team and we are finally able to do that," C&J and their subsidiaries Total Equipment and Casedhole Solutions will also be supporting the Parts Plus team said Vandergriff. "To compete on an even playing field with the other elite teams, we knew a second team was paramount to our success. Bringing Parts Plus with their entire network to our program and having the ability to bring a great driver and fan favorite like Clay to our team is huge plus for us."

2012 was a successful year for Bob Vandergriff Jr. He recently won the Big O Tire Nationals in Las Vegas, and finished the season 8th in points. In November, Vandergriff and his wife Marisa welcomed another son into their family.

Millican has found most of his success in IHRA. He has the most wins of any top fuel driver in IHRA history, taking home 51 national event wins and six consecutive IHRA World Championships. During the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Series Clay ran very consistent, qualifying at 22 out of 23 races. Millican made it to the semi-finals four times. He finished the season 12th in points. Millican has been driving for MPE Motorsports since 2008.

"I can't wait to get started and I'm excited about joining Bob Vandergriff Racing," said Millican. "BVR has made great strides and will provide me the opportunity to not only win races, but compete for the championship! Bob has assembled a quality team of crew chiefs and personnel and I'm looking forward to being a teammate to Bob. We both have lofty goals for the upcoming season!"
