Doug Wright

Doug Wright was first introduced to drag racing in the early 1970’s. He competed at Bill Hielscher’s Green Valley Raceway in Richland Hills, Texas. Doug was hired by Bill to be one of his track officials and continued to work at different positions at the track until it closed.

At that time NHRA division director, Dale Ham offered him a job on the Division 4 certification team. Doug quickly became the “go to guy” to handle any problems that would occur during the race and he continues that position within the division today.

Doug is proud of the fact that he has missed only two divisional races in 20 years, has worked every bracket final race in the division’s history, and maintains close friendships with fellow crew members, track operators and racers that he has made over the last 20 years.

He is an SFI certified chassis inspector, and has twice been awarded the Division 4 Good Guy award.

The Texas area Drag Geezers held their annual Christmas Luncheon at the Ranchhouse Restaurant & Club. The weather was a little chilly, but that didn’t prevent a good crowd from visiting with some of the outstanding racers from the past. Two of Texas favorites, Bobby Langley and Vance Hunt, were there. There were also a couple of dragsters that were fired up to the delight of the crowd. If you are into drag racing history, this is an event that you don’t want to miss. For more information about the Drag Geezers and upcoming events, go to:
