"Big Daddy" Don Garlits breaks 270 mph barrier; 1986 Gatornationals
Don Garlits' record breaking run of 272 mph to earn him the distinction of
being the 1st to break 270 mph in NHRA Drag Racing, while defeating former
NFL Quarterback Dan Pastorini in the semis of Top Fuel at the 1986
Gatornationals, and without a doubt, this was THE race of the day.
Kids, this is why they will forever call him "BIG DADDY"
Snake & Mongoose
After having lunch at Fidel's in Solana Beach, saw Don "The Snake"
Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen funny cars parked on the street.
They were in town for Comic Con. Seeing those cars brought back a lot of
Drag Racing Nostalgia from American Nitro
Jungle Jim Liberman and an intense blend of flesh, fire, and burning
rubber. Filled with the hairiest crashes, flips, explosions, and fires
imaginable. It's a thrill a minute following the drivers, their gutsy sex
charged women and the awesome machines that attract them both.
Buy the DVD at http://americannitro.com and follow a ground pounding
spectacle that builds to a climactic showdown between drag racing legends
Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen.
