I used to race on the streets of Clio in the late 70s until I found Lapeer Dragway. It was so nice not to have to look over my shoulder for the cops!! I fell in love with the sport and the track and raced there through the mid and late 80s. I kind of owe my life to Lapeer Dragway. At the time I was laid off from the Flint Truck Assembly Plant and had submitted an application at the Milford Proving Grounds.
I was first in line to start the elimination rounds, when a man approached and asked if I would mind if he went first because his race car was over heating and would not make it through the long wait. It did not matter to me, so I let him go ahead of me. A week later I received a phone call about the job at MPG. When I showed up for the interview, youll never guess who was sitting there. Yup! The guy I let go ahead me ended up interviewing me for the job. Needless to say, I got the job! Ive been there now 28 years.
