"From the earliest days of the automobile, car manufacturers lured customers to their showrooms displaying various machines ranging from two tons of luxury, comfort and chrome to the thrill of a no bones, lightweight, high horse-powered coupe designed to be the quickest and fastest in the industry.
''What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday'' pushed Detroit's Big Four (GM, Ford, Chrysler and AMC) to produce selected factory-built production cars with gutted trim, lightweight frames stuffed with high cubic-inch powerful engines with modified fuel systems. Rivalries quickly flourished as Detroit's finest teams battled out across the country for supremacy.
Factory-backed legends Dick Landy, ''Dyno'' Don Nicholson, Sox & Martin, Bill ''Grumpy'' Jenkins, Bob Glidden, Wally Booth, Paul Blevins, Richie Zul, Warren Johnson, ''Akron'' Arlen Vanke, Billy Stepp, Gapp and Roush, Don Carlton, Butch Leal, and many others from Jr. Stock to the giants of Pro Stock, come alive in this photo gallery of Pro Stock Drag Racing."
