Drag Racing – Pure Stock Muscle Car Style
The Pure Stock Muscle Car Drags were held at the Mid-Michigan Motorplex near Stanton, MI. on September 16th and 17th, 2011. I flew out to Flint, Michigan and then rode with a couple of friends to the race track. This was my first adventure that far east turning out to be an awesome trip. My interest was to be present for the running of the Studebaker Larks, Hawks and Avanti’s of the 1963 and 1964 model years, Studebakers muscle car years. We fielded 8 cars amongst the 130 or so total entrants and won 5 or the 7 shootouts. A pleasing result. It was such a blast to watch all the cars of the era go head to head and put down some incredible numbers. The weather was superb for the event, a deciding factor in making those super runs. This event has run since 1998 and over that period has gained in popularity. Gearheads are building extremely competitive machinery that push the envelope each time down the track. If you are at all interested in American Muscle at its finest, then this event should be added to your calendar for 2012.
