Like Babe Ruth and his 1932 "called shot" home run against the Chicago Cubs, racing legend "Big Daddy" Don Garlits is calling one of his own. He's taking his battery-powered "Swamp Rat 37" back to Florida's Bradenton Motorsports Park on June 8. And he's predicting a beat-down on the 200 mile per hour threshold.
200 Miles Per Hour
Drag-racing legend "Big Daddy" Don Garlits didn't quite reach his goal of getting his electric dragster to break the 200-mile-per-hour mark. But he did come close enough to get his team to keep trying. And 184 miles per hour is nothing to sneeze at.
