Have Any Detroit Dragway Photos You Want To Share? Send Them To Us
This is a video of my dads Chevette the Motown Shaker. (No relation to Al Berglers Motown Shaker funny car.) It ran super gas and the front was stretched 14 inches. I grew up watching him race this car at Detroit, Ubly and MIlan dragway. It started life with a small block Chevy and eventually getting a big block towards the end. Unfortunately the car was totaled down in Mississippi when he was attempting to chase NHRA points at the first race of the season. My dad came out of the crash unhurt and came home a built a 1990 Beretta he campaigned for a few more years before selling the car.
We want to acknowledge the racers, & staff that made this track what it was. One of the top drag strips in the nation.
Thank you for being part of this great track. Although Detroit Dragway is gone, it is not forgotten.
