It’s Smokey and Slippery! Photos From The Woodward Drags At Roadkill Nights 2016

Eep, Doc Fox got a little close to the wall with that hip-wiggling Vette. Turns out hooking a car up on the street isn’t quite as easy as easy as it looks on TV. We have hundreds of cars in line for Woodward Ave racetrack, and as you can see from the photos, there’s some real skill required to keep it straight all the way down the 8th-mile.

304-Roadkill Nights Drag Racing on Woodward Dream Cruise 2016

Like all good street races, there’s no score board, but as our timing guys Brock and “Corn” told us, “The fast ones look fast.” So far the fast ones have been Tom Bailey’s 69 Camaro (of course) and Bryant Goldstone’s 73 Javelin (duh), but we saw a nasty-quick Charger make a pass too. Gonna go hunt that one down. Both Bailey and Goldstone’s passes were full-track smoke, and the Camaro got a bit out of shape at the top end. “You do that for showmanship?” we asked Tom. “Can we say I did?” he answered. Turbo cars are hard to pedal because they keep building boost so if you get off and back on, you’re putting more power down. See for yourself.

Something to Say?
