Mike Carr Raced At Detroit Dragway
I have raced a car that was owned by Jim Long, he also owned Jim Long Industries which was a performance machine shop in Livonia that i once worked at, he owned a couple cars one being a 70 Nova but the one he/I drove at the double D was his late 60’s Mustang, it was called the 999 car and I have yet to find anybody that has any pictures of that car. I have lots of childhood memories of going to races at that place. But the most memorable time for me was driving Jim’s Mustang back in the early 80’s.
Thanks for keeping this alive.

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 Charlie Justice
 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.
