You CAN'T be a Street Racer if you've never raced

When you have as much experience in the automotive industry as 3Denton Auto you start to learn people come and go, but when you have such a comprehensive background that spans across multiple eras, industries and environments you tend to realize there's plenty of people that talk cars.. There are TONS of people that add performance parts to there vehicle and as much as its cool to try and drag race the local $1500 Honda Civic that you passed on your way to the Mall.


None of these put your skills to the test and prove your automotive knowledge like taking your work to the next level. Henry Denton has done just that, he has honed his skills working as a teenager in the local automotive shop (Sug's Super Service) in Vandalia, IL. He took those skills he learned to the next level when he used them to serve our country in the US Army during Vietnam in the motor pool and treading along with all the other members of the US Military in Vietnam. Then, when he got back from his deployment in Vietnam he was on the track proving that he had the automotive skills to become a multi-time stock car racing champion. Through building, tuning, trial and error he designed these award winning race cars that he took out to the track time and time again.
