It is with great sadness that we report the passing of

Willie Hump passed away on Sunday, April 16, 2023.

Willie Hump started racing in 1957 on the streets of DC in a 1947 Plymouth.  Mr. Hump realized it was much safer to change over to the drag strip.  He then started racing his 1955 Chevy at Aquasco Speedway in the early 60’s.  Willie Hump was a member of the D.C. Speed Shifters, Satin Chauffer’s and a member of the Quartermasters Racing Team.

Our thoughts & prayers go out to his wife Barbara & to the Lee Family. We also extend our condolences to Quartermaster.

QuarterMileBrothers.com was created to highlight
African Americans in Drag Racing the ' Brothers'.

As most of us know, African American males in the professional field of Drag Racing are very few.
But little do you know, that there are hundreds of
'Brothers' who come out every
Weekend to bracket race down the Quarter Mile. These are the '
Brothers' that you never hear about.
At least not until you have viewed this Web site.

Each week we will try to share with you pictures and stories about the Quarter Mile Brothers.
We will also provide you with information on the
'Brothers' in the professional field of Drag Racing.

Our goal at QuarterMileBrothers is to document ALL accomplishments made by the 'Brothers' in drag racing.
Our staff travels to various tracks each week but we can’t be everywhere.  PLEASE email us at ETRacer@QuarterMileBrothers.com when your team makes it to the winners’ circle or if you are the last 'Brother' standing. If you don’t see a story on the website, it’s because we were not notified or not at the track.

If this is your first time viewing our website and you won a race a week or months ago, just email us
the information and we will post it on the website. Remember: It’s never too late to Congratulate a 'Brother'.

If you would like to share a story or pictures with our readers please drop us a line at
 ETRacer@QuarterMileBrothers.com - We look forward to hearing from you.
