William Elias "Bill" Stepp
One of drag racing’s more colorful figures Stepp, who hailed from Dayton Ohio ran a string of highly successful "Billy the Kid" ProStock cars, from 1970 thru the mid 90's - 1969 & 70 were huge years for the newly formed Pro Stock class and Bill Stepp wanted to be a part of it. So Bill began his quest to become a dominant force in ProStock racing. With his "Billy the Kid" stable of drivers reading like a "who's who" that included Ronnie Sox, Don Carlton, Dick Humpbert even Herb McCandless for one race. It is my pleasure to recreate this car as a tribute to him and the late great Ronnie Sox.
