There is a tremendous amount of automotive history in this place! Even if you're not a fan of drag racing, just the collection of street cars will make it worth a stop. I've been driving by this place for years, finally stopped to check it...More

We went a couple of years ago during a car show. It was amazing even got to meet Don Garlits. He was very gracious and even gave me his autograph. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Kudos to Don for preserving the history of drag racing in such an awesome way! The number of cars and personal photos, etc is amazing. Drag Racers are not the only attraction! There are cars from the early 1900's through the 70's! Lovingly restored, these...More
