During the summer of 1953 Michigan State Police detoured Sunday morning traffic from Ecorse Road between Denton and Beck Roads, east of Ypsilanti, allowing local teenagers to drag race for a few hours. Ecorse was a four-lane divided highway, and racers competed in the eastbound lanes. The quarter-mile distance was marked off for them.[1]
