We all know the big names that raced at the Double D, but like every strip out there it’s the man & woman weekend racers that keep the tracks open. The same was for Detroit Dragway. One of the people that raced at DD was Tino Franciosi.
I raced at Detroit Dragway in 67, 68 and 69.
In 67 I raced the Camaro in stock form. Stock 350 295 hp. ran 14.09 at 102.
68 and 69 the Whine-Maker was introduced. 427 L88, rock crusher Muncie, 4.56 gear.
The car ran 11.00 at 127. I ran against the likes of Lil Kim, Jim McNamara (can’t remember for sure) blue Nova called the Hustler.
