Like father, like son

Trevor Wiggins, ME’96, switched from professional racing to drag racing so he could bring his wife and kids along and get them involved in the sport.

Featured in the July 2012 issue of Drag Illustrated magazine, Wiggins says the people who participate in motorsports are the type of people — smart, hardworking and ethical — that he wanted his kids to be raised around.

Wiggins’ son, 6-year-old Grady, proved he’s got his dad’s racing gene in October when he made his driving debut at the Music City Quarter Midget Racing Association track in Nashville, Tenn. Grady set a new track record for the fastest lap by a novice and, after missing the start, came from the back of the pack to win the main race.
