"Big Daddy" Don Garlits is by far the most legendary name in Drah Racing or NHRA history. Longevity doesn't guarantee success, but success over a long period of time can elevate a person to the top of his or her profession. In drag racing, that person is Donald Glenn Garlits, also known as "Big Daddy."

Garlits won the first NHRA Drag race he entered with the first racecar he built. It was 1955, and the NHRA Safety Safari had come to Lake City, Fla. A short three years later, the garage and body shop owner was racing professionally with the first of 34 racecars he would later tag Swamp Rat. He didn't stop until 1992, when eye trouble, the result of deceleration G forces of nearly 7 G's, forced him from the seat at age 60. In the four-decade interim, Garlits took on all comers on any racetrack in the country and sometimes abroad. Driving chassis he fabricated that were powered by engines he built, Garlits won 144 major open events and 17 national championships in the sport's three major hot rod associations.

By any measure, Garlits belongs at the top of NHRA's Top 50 Drivers list, and in 2001 was voted #1 in NHRA racing for the past 50 years. Scores of wins? Check. Numerous championships? Check. Technological breakthroughs? Check. Popularity? Check. Innovations? Check. Contributions to the growth of NHRA? Mention drag racing to the man on the street and if he knows only one name, it surely is "Big Daddy" Don Garlits.
