“The history of drag racing”

Chronicles the history of the sport of drag racing. Some 90 racing cars can be seen in the Drag Race building, while a further 50 vehicles are in the Antique Car building. Many of the Garlits "Swamp Rat" cars are here, but he also turns out to be a pack rat with an accumulation of cars and memorabilia from other top names in the sport. The iconic cars of Dean Moon, the Mooneyes gas dragster and the Moonbeam sports car are on display here. The museum is also home to the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame. Inductees include Art Arfons, Sydney Allard, Zora Arkus-Duntov, Ray Godman, Raymond Beadle,Shirley Muldowney, Kenny Bernstein, and Don Schumacher and Connie Glen Swingle. US Navy jet mounted on a stand out front is a good photo op.

If you are "into" drag racing -this is a MUST see. There are many dragsters on display as well as the history behind them. If you're lucky just maybe BIG DADDY will stop in to chat with you!!

My husband loves drag racing and I am glad we stopped by for him. It was a little more expensive than I wanted especially for my 3 kids.
