Detroit Dragway Photos - Legends of the 60s

Chris Karamesines "The Greek" or "Golden Greek" in 1960 posing with a charming smile inside his dragster the "Chizler" in line against the "Swamp Rat" at Detroit Dragway. My father, Sports Photographer, Joe Stevens, captured several great shots of the Greek. You'll find them here & in a seperate gallery all his own because of his popularity & he still races to this day at 80 yrs of age or so. I have his autograph but still haven't met him. I almost met him a few years ago when he was suppose to present some new inductees at the Detroit NHRA Hall of Fame at the Science Center but he didn't come. I did meet Danny Ongais that day tho & got his autoraphs. I think it's time I got in touch with Mr. Karamesines and see if he will autograph some more photos for me that my father, Joe Stevens took.
