Story and Photos by John Chung

 

 

Pontiac fans lost a hero on June 30, 2007.  As a teenager, Don Gay began promoting Pontiac Performance on the drag strip in the 1960's and 1970's with his famous Infinity race cars.  In his later years, he was active in his family's automotive business, Gay Pontiac in Dickinson, Texas.  Don Gay was also a co-owner of Houston Raceway Park.  He also raced Pontiacs with his brother, Roy Gay. In the mid 1980's his son, Don Jr. also raced Pontiacs.
