Thumbs up Johnny Gray Is Very Wealthy!!

Johnny Gray according to Competition's article is one wealthy man. Millions perhaps over a billion in net worth. His statement that NHRA "should understand that Top Fuel and Funny car are not the only classes" is a valid statement.

What LArry, because he is a billionaire we need to listen to him? Our country listened to billionaires long enough, look where it got us. There have to be far more valid points to make other than a billionaire said its important.

Of course he is very wealthy. He runs Pro Stock! With the exception of a few, the Pro Stock class is a multi-millionaire's or in his case a billionaire's club. That being said Johnny Gray has run in Comp, the Alcohol classes & the Fuel (nitro) classes before running Pro Stock. At the time he was running in each of those classes it is a very strong probability that the class he was running in was the most important to him & he wanted NHRA to recognize that too. It is normal to think the class one runs in is the most important.
No matter what class you run the little statue of Jack Jones (renamed "Wally") is the most expensive single part of any racing operation & the hardest to get.

Don't think for a second that Conrad isn't as wealthy or too far behind Gray.
