Mickey Thompson M/T

DRAG RACING

 

 

  M/T started racing on the street. I think one of the best races he had was between him and a woman, she beat him in the race so Mickey pulled her over to talk to her and before they knew it they were married. When Mickey started he had very little money. His dad was a police officer in LA so the family did not have much money for Mickey to spend on Autos. This lack of money caused Mickey to build most of every thing himself. We would weld up the cylinder heads inside the combustion chamber to raise the compression ratio. He was even known to have ground his own camshaft on a bench grinder.
