No man has ever shaped the destiny of his chosen sport more than “Big Daddy”, both in technical innovation and sheer professionalism. ‘Champion Garlits’ mixes archive footage of the many milestones of Don’s career with an extensive interview with the man himself, in his Museum of Drag Racing. The triumphs, the disasters, the highs and lows of this champion of the drag strip are all recalled. Don was the first man to run a 250 mph terminal speed standing quarter, and on another occasion he tripped the lights near to this terminal speed backwards! These and many other highlights of a remarkable career are included in this action-packed programme.
