Hunter will be making his first start as a driver this season in the Alisa’s Monograming and Ect #11H Stinger Car. Should be exciting, best of luck Hunter!
Hunting season has been extended for one man from Atmore, Al. Although he will not be preying on a four legged furry animal. Hunter Milliken has his crosshairs on a championship.

Milliken Lawn Service, Revelation Signs and Graphics, and Butler u-pullit.com will be on the side of the #27 Stinger car, which will also be sporting a new paint scheme in 2012. Hunter also owes a special thanks to his dad (Larry), Hannah, Sara, and Tyson. Best of Luck Hunter in the upcoming year.
