“Pound for pound, I have the better racecar” – Will Holloman

Between traveling the country racing and loving Pro Nitrous cars, Will Holloman stays busy and tries to find the winner’s circle at whatever racetrack he lands at for the weekend.

PLEASANT VIEW, TNWill Holloman can be seen at pretty much any and every big money bracket race on the schedule. He has been racing for 24 years, and plans on quitting are not even a thought in his mind.

Holloman was introduced to the sport by both of his parents. They both raced in the 70s and 80s before electronics were discovered. They quit racing about the time Will was able to start racing himself.

Will currently races a Chrome-Work car owned by Tony Hill, who has literally never even seen the car in person! He picked it up for him on Mother’s Day in 2020 and it has been guiding him to winner’s circles since.

It is an American Race Cars chassis with a Sunset 615 SR20 engine with an Abruzzi transmission and converter. It will typically run 4.55-4.65 depending on what part of the country Holloman is in that week and what converter is in it.

DragChamp Racer Spotlight with Will Holloman

What is your favorite race car, and why?  

Bickel 69 Camaro Pro Nitrous car.  I’ve spent so many hours on and with them.  To me, you can’t beat a Pro Nitrous car!

Who has made the biggest impact on your racing success?  

That’s tough to narrow down!  I couldn’t do what I’m currently doing without Tony’s support.  With me and Hunter Patton having identical combinations, the info shared and idea’s we bounce off of each other certainly helps!

Who do you look up to in the sport?  

Jason Lynch

Tell us what you do for a living?  

Bracket Race (One of my finer life choices).

How do you support your racing, side hustle, sponsor, partner, etc.?  

Tony Hill is a great partner.  There has been times it’s been beneficial for us both, and a lot of times he’s had to pick up my slack.  We enjoy buying a selling throughout the winter.  Whether it’s turn key cars, or drivetrains, trailers, etc.  When you do what I do, you have to hustle.  Winter gets longer and colder every year it seems, if you know what I mean.

Who do you hate to see in the other lane, and why?  

Chris Bear.  We are typically both sub 10 total when we lock up.  I have a lot of respect for him, and his dad!

What’s your most embarrassing moment in a race car? 

I flew out to Tucson, AZ and dialed to spray beside a rather aggressive driver.  I was in Rayce Kidd’s car and never asked the important question.  Yeah, the bottle was empty, which made my 6 hr flight, and 4 hr layover bliss.

What are you saying to yourself just before you stage the car?  

“Aim small, miss small” for years.  Today, I’m more of a, “Pound for pound, I have the better racecar.”

What do you enjoy the most at the racetrack?  

I’ve won races with each of my daughter’s present.  That’s pretty special to me.  

Are you superstitious?  If so, what are they?  

100%.  I won’t change fuel jugs.  I will fill my empty one, before grabbing a full one. Never pee when it’s down to less than 16.  The rest is just more of a routine, that I just refuse to break, like right glove on first.  

Do you love to win or hate to lose?  

Love to win.  However it is I lose a particular round, knowing it’s inevitable I will make the same mistake again, I try to find a way to lower the probabilities of that happening again.  

Will Holloman

Which are you better at the starting line or the finish line?  

Depends on the race track I’m at and the time of year. 

What motivates you to continue racing?  

Once you get a taste of one of those big paydays, it’s addicting. 

If money were no object, what would your racing operation look like?  Car, trailer, class, race schedule, etc.  

PDRA Pro Nitrous Bound!

How often do you use a practice tree?  

During winter, 7 days a week.  This time of year, everyday that I’m not actually in a racecar.  It’s all a process.  You have to train it, and then trust it.  You get out what you put in. 

What is your daily driver?  

2020 F250

Favorite movie or TV show?  

O’ Brother Where Art Thou?

Will Holloman
