They called him “Big Daddy.” Don Garlits was the champion of the racetrack. He broke one speed record after another—until disaster struck and his car exploded at the starting line. Superfast Cars is the story of Garlits and other drag racers who design and build race cars to achieve ultimate speed. Undeterred by a mere explosion, Garlits soon began designing better, safer, and faster cars. Thrill-seeking readers will meet the great men and women of drag racing, explore the history of this dangerous sport, and learn about the mechanics and engineering of the world’s fastest dragsters. Full-color photographs, a labeled diagram, and compelling action narratives of real racers in action are guaranteed to capture every student’s imagination.
