By WSIL Reporter

BENTON -- 16 cars raced in the Car Craft Magazine Midnight Drags Saturday night.

All the cars were American rear wheel drive cars ranging from mustangs, to Cameros, and even a Cadillac.

The event was started as a way to minimize the illegal activity on the streets of DuQuoin during Street Machines.

Track officials said the crowd Saturday night was one of the biggest they have seen in recent years.

The winer was Tommy Fox in his 1971 Nova with a 5.36.
