SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY! At Detroit Dragway!
Detroit Dragway, often referred to as "The Dirty D," operated from 1959 until 1998. The Dragway was home to many Motor City racers and thousands of spectators who were thrilled by the sights, sounds and smells of the drags.
The iconic Detroit Dragway, which was located at the intersection of Sibley and Dix, was one of Downriver's most famous attractions. The racers and fans have remained loyal to the dragway, they weren't ready to let it go.
Although the track is long gone, you can still relive the memories on Saturday, May 11th at Milan Dragway. This is the 4th year for this annual event and it just keeps growing. Racers come from around the country to see each other again. One racer said it best "I seen people that I forgot I knew".
Detroit Dragway photographer, Mike Grosso, stayed in contact with Detroit Dragway employees and fans. He started contacting them through social media 4 years ago and the reunion took off. Funny Car driver, Steve Timoszyk, began researching and contacting legendary Funny Car drivers.
You can meet the legends from different eras. Connie Kalitta, Roger Lindamood, Dwane Ong, Della Woods, Arnie Beswick, the infamous Ramchargers, the Team Ford Racing and meet the author of the book, Team Ford Racing, Charlie Morris. Gene Logghe, Al Turner, Dave Kunz . The list will continue to grow.
There will be plenty of side-by-side action, featuring the Great Lakes Gassers and Nostalgia Funny Cars.
The "buzz" on the street is some of the fiercest competitors who used to race at Detroit Dragway are brewing up match races, indicating that it may be time to hash out some unfinished business.
This year will feature the Billetproof Car Show. The popular, huge car show located in Ypsilanti was always scheduled on the same date as the reunion. This year we have joined and offered the best of both worlds at Milan Dragway.
Saturday May 11, 2013 at Milan Dragway gates open at 9:00am.
