Product Description

Product Description

Since the moment that young men began modifying and personalizing their automobiles back in the 1940s and ’50s, “Big Daddy” Don Garlits was squarely in the thick of this intoxicating pursuit. Tales from the Drag Strip with “Big Daddy” Don Garlits is a first-person account of the many memorable experiences this drag racing icon has lived through in his half-century of nitromethane-fueled exploits. The many races, racers, race fans, and race tracks that have touched his colorful career are recounted as only Big Daddy can, painting a vivid picture of his life at speed and the triumphs and tragedies that came along the way. Insightful, ironic, humorous, and touching—but all true—Big Daddy’s remembrances are the next best thing to reliving the glory days of America’s quickest and fastest motorsports through the eyes of an American institution.

I have followed Don Garlits career for a very long time and bought this book to bring back some memories. It does. Lot of great anecdotes from the legend himself. Great reading about a different era of drag racing.

I am not (well was not) a huge Don Garlits fan but love drag racing. This is a very entertaining read. He tells about many little stories about the beginning days through his retirement. Highly recommend it
