Mark Williams

In 1964 Mark Williams left his normal 9-5 job and started his career as a racecar chassis builder. Throughout the ‘70s, many of the cars that Mark built set records and won many awards. Likely the most influential Top Fuel dragster he built was in 1969 for Mike Dollins and Dan Widner. It was the prototype for today’s rear-engine design.

In addition to chassis building, Mark Williams is now known as an industry leader and a state-of-the-art components manufacturer.

Mark was inducted into the Colorado Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2007.
