Detroit Dragway - Photos - 1960s

Don Morton, who worked for the Hurst Company for many years, is the driver of this 1969 Pontiac Bonneville during a 69' national event at Detroit Dragway. He is also a Riddler Award & a Longevity Award winner, among others, for his infamous Thunderbird that has been in the Detroit Autorama several times. Morton also drove this Golden Hurst car at Detroit Dragway with one of the most popular Hurst girls next to Linda Vaughn, Marsha Bennett, Miss Hurst Dual Shifter. Marsha worked for Hurst here at Miss Hurst Dual Shifter, to pay her way through college & was also an Airline Stewardess. I have no info on who the other woman on the right was.
