Re­gional War­riors

Chevy High Performance - - Straight Line Spot­light -

The east­ern Cana­dian prov­ince of On­tario is home to a dy­namic Top Sportsman rac­ing scene. One of the most tal­ented stay-close-to-home teams from that area is the Inger­soll­based duo of Bill Wilson and Rob Gray. That team races a su­per­con­sis­tent 2002 Chevy Cav­a­lier, which traces its ori­gins back to be­ing a Jegs Pro Stock car in its pre­vi­ous life. The self-funded, in­de­pen­dent team uses an al­co­hol-fu­eled 706ci big-block, which they spray with ni­trous ox­ide when needed. With runs in the low 6.8-se­cond zone and over 202 mph, the Wilson & Gray Cav­a­lier estab­lished it­self a long time ago as one of the tough­est Chevy cars in east­ern Canada. That in­cludes win­ning sea­son points cham­pi­onships for both the PMRA and USDS Cana­dian cir­cuits. An in­ter­est­ing di­men­sion to the team is that Bill and Rob (who have been rac­ing part­ners for over 25 years) also share the driv­ing du­ties, throw­ing the keys back and forth to one an­other af­ter each event.
