I wish the new owners of the Silverdome would have another dirt late model race. I was there in 82 and thought it was awesome. They could probably get a good size crowd.

Build a new 1/2 mile asphalt track on the Silverdome site, surround it with drive-in movie screens and put some rides in it''''s parking lot. How obvious is that. You could even run weeknights. There is a population base here.

I have many pictures from the Pontiac Silverdome. I''ll have to dig them out and scan them. I painted jumps for a BMX bike race there one year. I drove my car into the tunnel and onto the ground floor. I also painted the Demo Cars for the the local stars.

My daughter was with me one day and she painted a heart on the fender of the car she wanted to win. She was right. It was DICK the BRUSER from WRIF. I went to many of the Monster Trucks and Truck Pulls.

I remember one year when a stunt driver, I think his last name was Carter was going to jump all these buses (I think they were buses) with his car. It took like for ever to move the dirt around and bring in the buses. He made all these practice runs and than he jumped and missed. He climbed out of his car, with his arms in the air saying he was alright.

Everyone was booing him as they left their seats. I will post the picture as soon as I can.

Hello all, I am in search of pictures for any of the Monster Truck events that were held at the Pontiac Silverdome. Espically ones that were run during 1986. Any help would be much appreciated! Also any photographs from the 1986 Autorama car show at Cobo Hall. Thanks, Mike K.

Black Jack Boggs from Grayson, KY won the NDRA race in the picture on dirt below with the Late Models. The Flintstone Flyer is Mike Duvall out of Ga. The #14 is Larry Moore from OH, D7 is Jerry Inmon from Miss. , #41 is Buck Simmons that about all I can make out in the pictures. At one time Michael Moats from Powell, TN in the site listed had a lot of pictures of that race posted on his site.

Jeff, cool poster. It says 1/4 mile Blacktop racetrack? Are there any photos of this event??.

Hey Randy, I agree with you, where are the Nederlanders now? I posted this on the Devos page, meant to post it here. I personally vote for a track that could be made into both. Better yet someone should build a real indoor half mile that exits out into a road course in and out doors. It is possible. That would solve Waterford's, Bill's and my problems all at once.

I have said that before. this would be a perfect location for a new track. And racing inside the dome would make it an every Saturday (or Friday/Sunday) event as there would be no weather issues.

Look at the Chilli bowl that just raced, that was indoors. And if you see these pic's below.

this could be a real racetrack with a weekly race schedule. Where are the Neederlanders now? Forget the State Fairgrounds.

the Silverdome would be great!!!.

Someone should put a track on the grounds or even in the old dome.

I believe USAC midgets raced on dirt in the Silverdome on an extremely cold January night in about 1979 or 1980. Billy Shipman was the flagman. He wore a tuxedo. The track was dusty, and paying a crew to dust the seats after the races cost the promoter $7,000.

I came across some pics from an old dirt late model race at the Silverdome in the 80s while doing a search for Jr. Hanley photos. Go to the link I am posting to check them out. Pages 12,13 and 14 are the ones to look at. They are at http://www.

mrmracing. net/tribute/ If anyone can help me out with any older Jr. Hanley pics from the late 70s through the 90s I would really appreciate it. His old #72 is what I am always looking for.

Photos, programs, news clippings, shirts, hats, just about anything I would love to see or get my hands on. Thanks. (hanley_72@hotmail. com).

The new photos are great Any more ?.

I agree, they should at least try to do one racing event (besides the Monster Truck deal) before it is done and gone, which will be sooner than later Im sure.

We went to see home town boy Aeron Anthes 43 run. I think they should have more races in the winter time in the Silver Dome.
