Detroit, MI – Every year the Woodward Dream Cruise gets bigger and better and this year, on August 19th, fans will discover 2006’s added bonus when passing Woodward at 13 mile road. At this intersection, industry leading tire company Toyo Tires will feature Detroit based drag racer Brian Olatunji and his / Von Dutch Chevy Monte Carlo. Although, it’s not rumbling down the 16 mile route with all the other classic hot rods, true car fans will have to stop and stare in awe at Olatunji’s decorated door slammer, known as the ‘purple rocket’. Complete with a 468 Cubic Inch Big Block Chevy engine and T-tops to adorn the 1978 masterpiece, Olatunji’s purple rocket will be one of a kind at the world’s largest one day car celebration and is not to be missed.

Olatunji will also be on hand to greet fans, sign hero cards, and give the young and those fortunate enough to remember drag racing’s infancy the chance to get up close and personal with the fuel burning beast. “I’m very thankful to have Toyo Tires as a sponsor and am grateful that they have given me the opportunity to represent them every time I go down the drag strip. Coming to the [Woodward Dream] Cruise has been a family tradition for years and now I’m fortunate enough to be one of the main attractions,” Olatunji shared. Toyo Tires is currently a proud sponsor of Leadfoot Motorsports, of which Olatunji is the founder and CEO. For more information, please visit and

The Dream Cruise runs from 9a.m. to 9p.m. on August 19th and is free to all.
