Team Bray Racing is set for a huge Gulf Western Oil Winternationals at its home track of Willowbank Raceway this weekend.
TBR’s Ben Bray will undertake double duty by competing in both the Pro Slammer and Factory Xtreme brackets at the 51st running of the event, while Frankie Taylor is back from the US and on a mission to beat Bray to a 5.6s ET.
At the same time, the TBR compound at the June 7-10 event will host many of the cars sponsored by team supporter and event sponsor, Gulf Western Oil, including four Pro Slammers, two Sport Compact cars, two Modified Dragsters, one Nitro Harley and one Junior Dragster alongside a bustling corporate guest area.

“The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals is always a huge event for Team Bray Racing, but this year is just on another level altogether,” Ben enthused.
“I will be doing double duty, podium positions in the Pro Slammer championship are on the line, and we will have a host of amazing racing vehicles as well as plenty of GWO corporate guests calling the TBR compound home during the event.
“It is really exciting for us too to race at yet another event sponsored by our own partners, Gulf Western Oil. GWO is the biggest sponsor in Australian drag racing at the moment I believe, backing not only ourselves but some great events, Top Fuel racers, sportsman racers and more. Hopefully, we can bring home a great result for them at the Winternats.
“We won’t be the only ones chasing winning results though - with 498 racers lined up for the event that everyone wants to win, you can expect to see racers putting it all on the line in the pursuit of victory.”
Excited to take in all the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals festivities is Texan Frankie Taylor.
“The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals is a huge event with four huge days of both on and off-track entertainment scheduled, it is one not to be missed. I can’t wait to see it all unfold and to be a part of what will be a very big and busy event for Team Bray Racing,” Taylor said.
“When it comes to the racing, the championship positions are certainly on our mind but at the same time, Ben’s PB is a 5.700s while mine is 5.703s (in Australia), so the race is on to see who can be the first to run a ‘five-six’!”
