Scarlet Affair

Kevin Deaton - Iowa. 

Owner: Kevin & Lori Deaton

Driver: Kevin Deaton

The car is a local legend car from Dallas Center, IA raced as a gasser from the late 1960s to 1980 and then it was stored until we bought it in 2014. We completed a total restoration at Angry Beaver Speedshop. Most work was completed in house except for paint. We saw the Gassers on the internet and went to the Meltdown Drags in 2014 and decided we were ready to try something new.

I have been racing with my wife Lori & daughter Danielle for over 20 years. Track champion in 1997 at Eddyville Dragway. Raced with Ozark Mountain Super Shifters. Organized and raced with Gamblers Drag Racing Association.

Our daughter is our backup girl and she has been to the track since she was 6 months old and drove a junior dragster.
