Eric Latino is the ‘green ambassador’ of drag racing
If you get to talking to Eric Latino about his 1969 Pro Modfied Camaro, which he’ll be racing this weekend in the “Thunder by the Beach” drag-racing meeting at the Grand Bend Motorplex, he might tell you that race cars are painted almost any colour except green.
Which is true. But Latino’s car, at least the top half of it, is a brilliant, buffed-out, shade of green.Anywhere else on the planet, green is synonymous with environmental protection. Latino is no exception. His car is in part a 246 m.p.h. billboard for what is arguably one of the most environmentally conscious racing programs in the drag racing world.
