Well-known cam grinder Ray Giovannoni opened the first speed shop in Washington, D.C. then in 1958, moved the business down to Port Orange, Florida, under the new name “Custom Automotive.” Specializing in selling Race Cams, Giovannoni’s dragsters began to rapidly increase in popularity as record-setting drag racers like Gary Cagle and Don Garlits placed top three in races held on the West Coast. Fans flocked to Riverside Drag Strip to witness the nation’s top dragsters while Giovannoni-equipped cars set astounding records of 175.78 MPH within 9.01 seconds. A monumental shift began in drag racing during 1960 as drag racing champions, both new and old, changed to the “Big G” NHRA-sanctioned Detroit Dragway in Michigan which was the location where Don Garlits smashed the 187.10 MPH record from Fremont, California, going 190.27 miles per hour in a Giovannoni-equipped car. This shocking achievement elicited waves of excitement from dragster fans and further increased Giovannoni’s popularity.
