Here we are in the pits at Martin, Michigan, for the 1971 Popular Hot Rodding magazine race. The driver is Gary Dyer, and he is modeling the latest style. Mr. Norm Krause had brought in a clothing sponsor on the Grand-Spaulding Dodge dealership-based Challenger called The Guys, and Dyer’s mod threads may well have come from this source. This independent racing event was one of the largest in the Midwest during the era, bringing in some of the sport’s biggest names in Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Stock for a big dollar match-race in the Wolverine State in late summer.
