80 Year Old Don Garlits Quest for 200MPH on Batteries

While many 80 year olds are finding their way out of the driver’s seat, “Big Daddy” Don Garlits is going the exact opposite way as he has been on the quest for 200mph.

Now, we’ve seen 200mph breached before, but this run is a little bit different. Instead of using conventional internal combustion, Don will be completing his run on batteries alone with Team at Bradenton Motorsports Park chasin down the 1/4 mile electric vehicle world record!

Check out the video below to see the quest go down. We bet you’ve never heard a dragster this quiet before! The progress that this torquey technology has made lately is truly insane and it will be interesting to see how electric grows into the future.
