Under the colors of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Hillary Will, driving KB Racing's Top Fuel dragster,
will give the car its inaugural appearance at this weekend's NHRA event at Charlotte, NC.
Wilson Manifolds' associate Scott Revell wanted the North American motor sport world to learn about
their new partner in the Middle East. "The Royal Family of Bahrain has been highly supportive of
our operations," said Revell. Wilson and Revell are building a state-of-the-art $200-million dollar
auto parts manufacturing facility in Bahrain. This news comes as the drag racing world prepares to
experience the magnificent new zMax Dragway facility at Concord, NC, the venue of this year's NHRA
Ken Black commented, "Hillary's racecar not only promotes the Kingdom of Bahrain to our American
audience, its involvement in the motor sport manufacturing plant with Wilson and Revell but also
highlights the close ties between the USA and Bahrain-America's vital friend in the Middle East."
Bahrain, an Island in the Persian Gulf is now recognized as the foremost financial hub of the
Middle East and the home of F1 and drag racing in the Gulf.
