NOSTALGIA DRAG RACING PICTURE OF THE DAY

Here is a shot of Don Carlton's early 1970s Demon at the 1974 Summernationals. Don was running B/Altered that weekend. He had a very fast and powerful car
but was suffering with the NHRA weight breaks for Vegas and Pintos. Due to the Mopar boycott, Don was missing out on the Pro Stock action.
He entered in Comp instead. I think he went out pretty early. This was a very nice car and a great example of Don's ability.
It's really too bad that he suffered fatal injuries in testing a few years later with an altered wheelbase Dodge Colt.
He would be a force to reckon with today. - Peter Kumble
