Detroit Dragway fans lost another one of it’s legends Walt Knoch Jr. & his Walt’s Puffers.

Walt passed away on Oct. 9, 2020, at the age of 84.  I met Walt a few years ago at a drag strip and showed him a movie clip of the 1962 Indy Nationals.  The clip showed Walt racing.  He then told me about that day’s events at Indy.  RIP Walk you gave a lot of racing fans at Detroit great memories.

This photo is one I took at the event. The two older photos are stills from my 62 Indy movie.
