Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing
suggested by C.T."Zeke" Kindt (www.zekesmarine.com)

Don Garlits   

The name “Big Daddy” Don Garlits is synonymous with Drag Racing. In fact, Garlits has been dubbed the “King of the Dragsters,” and could be considered the patriarch of Top Fuel Drag Racing. The Classic Car Collection has been a popular addition on the grounds of Garlits museums.

Just ten years after the first expansion of the Drag Racing Museum, Garlits began a $750,000 major expansion project.

Construction included a brand new main entrance, increased parking, and a new 20,000 square foot building designed especially for Antique and Classic Cars.

This is certainly one of the most unique collections of antique and classic cars in existence, Don Garlits has made it possible for you to come as close as possible to "yesteryear".

The Garlits Museums complex encompasses a 16 acre grassy plot which Don and Pat purchased in 1982. Garlits Museums are conveniently located on Interstate 75, only about 15 minutes south of Ocala Florida, off exit 341. The new main entrance is just a city block east of the I-75 off ramp on County Road 484.

The deep commitment that propelled Don Garlits to Drag Racing fame, results from his view of a purpose. Once again, due to Don's purpose, the artifacts at Garlits Museums  offer its visitors a unique experience in automobile history, making a visit well worth the small price of admission.

Location:

13700 SW 16TH Avenue
Ocala, Florida 34473
1-877-271-3278

Directions:  We are located along I-75, exit 341 (OLD exit 67) east toward Belleview, Florida, just eight miles south of Ocala, Florida. From Daytona: West Bound on State Road 40, turn South on County Road 35 at the traffic light near Silver Springs attraction and Wild Waters and head to Belleview, Florida.  In Belleview, turn west(right) on County Road 25.  Remain on CR 25 (CR 25 turns into Highway 484) until the Interstate I-75.
