Q&A With ADRL Outlaw 10.5 Round 5 Winner Dan Millen

PowerTV: How hard was it to get your car over to Qatar?

Dan Millen : Well I definitely have to thank Sheikh Khalid for getting my car over there, I called the guy that he deals with over here and it was a real simple process. It was a lot easier than I initially thought. I was expecting it to be a real drawn out process but as long as you have your paperwork in order it’s no big deal. So we took the car to JFK in New York i gave him my paperwork, it was all scheduled, and it was about a twenty minute process.

PowerTV: Besides the car did you have to ship any of your equipment over there?

Dan Millen : What I did was shipped my car and three boxes. My tool Box, an engine, and miscellaneous parts that I would use for my car.

PowerTV: What was everyone’s reaction to seeing your car?

Dan Millen : I’ll tell you, the people over there are very appreciative of everything. They were happy to see us over there, and a lot of people were surprised we were there. But I got to know some pretty good guys from over there, and when they were over in the States testing, they convinced me that I needed to come back to were they are from and race.

PowerTV: Was your overall experience good, both on and off the track?

Dan Millen:It was an awesome experience, I actually can’t wait to go back. I went there for three weeks, then went back on February 7th and plan on going back there again very soon. It really is a great place.

PowerTV: In the future do you see yourself building a car and leaving it over there for those races and also having a car here in the States?

Dan Millen: I did sell my car over there, so I do plan on building a new car for next year. I do want to start racing the full series over there, that would be awesome, I don’t know what is going to happen in the immediate future but I can see that happening. The people that are over there are very very nice - I couldn’t have been treated any nicer, and it wasn't like they just treated me nice, they treated everyone nice.

PowerTV: Were the rules any different over there than in the NMRA/NMCA?

Dan Millen :Yeah, we were 100 pounds lighter over there than here, but other than that the rules were the same

PowerTV: How was the competition in Qatar?

Dan Millen : There was only five or six cars in our class and honestly, I only won one of the first four races I went to, so the competition is pretty good. Anybody can win over there - it was anybody’s race at anytime. We did qualify number one twice I believe, and that really played in favor for us but anyone could have qualified number one that is how good the competition was.
