Street Legal Drag Racing on Woodward Ave.

Pretty much a car guy's dream, making passes on historic Woodward.

once again we did RoadKill Nights on Woodward Ave, and once again we had an absolute blast.

This year we were able to hang out an extra day and spend the afternoon cruising Woodward, which was pretty surreal.

Re: Street Legal Drag Racing on Woodward Ave.

I love that beater-looking '67 Malibu 4-door at the start. Known as "Calculated Risk", it has run 8.60 e.t. & 157 through the traps. That old International pickup beside it is cool as well.

Nice find, watching it on the Smart TV. That 4-door Jeep though!

Rick it was cool seeing your car in person. I appreciate you taking the time to show me your roll cage and how you tied it into the trunk area. The racing on Woodward looked like a lot of fun.

Re: Street Legal Drag Racing on Woodward Ave.

I went there last year, it was a hoot. The drift rides and the track thrill rides in the hellcats were a blast. I'm a classic GM guy and a modern Mopar guy.
Here is some videos I took last year. Most are with a 360 camera, so click and drag, scroll and zoom with a mouse to get the full view.

During my late teen years we used to go to the street racing at night in Detroit. Always a blast police only ticketed $5 for loitering to the last car pulling away. Just drive to the other locations and find more racing. Racers would get more of a ticket if caught. Good times Woodward dream cruise was always good. Nowadays there is a big risk of your vehicle being stolen.

Re: Street Legal Drag Racing on Woodward Ave.

The time I was there I made it a point to see a museum or 2 each trip. I got lucky with the W. P. Chrysler one, they aren't typically open any more, and "sneaked" into the GM Heritage one with a private group. The Henry Ford is excellent as well. And if you have a day to burn, nothing beats the Gilmore, but that is a good drive to the west.
