Race Legend Steve Millen in No. 5 Nissan 300ZX On the Track Again

Legendary race car driver Steve Millen is back on the Monterey race track in California in his equally iconic 300ZX car. Nissan and Millen brought the twin turbo racer out of retirement for one more run at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in California.

“This Monterey historic reunion is the biggest and best of the classic car races in America,” said Millen. “I’ve always come up here as a spectator thinking I’d like to do that one day. This time we decided to come to compete and celebrate the 20th anniversary of our Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring and championship wins. We had so much success for this car in 1994 that we had to come and celebrate our 20th anniversary.”

The 800 horsepower car still has its inspection sticker from its winning Le Mans race of 20 years ago.
