The “Quest for 200 MPH on Batteries” dragster team is kicking off its 2014 campaign. The car had its debut with full sheet metal and graphics in the Lincoln Electric display booth at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Car owners “Big Daddy” Don Garlits (Ocala, FL) , Brad Hadman (Tacoma, WA), and Mike Gerry (Las Vegas, NV) are pushing to break the hallowed 200 MPH barrier in the ¼ mile…using renewable battery power! Garlits first officially broke through that magic barrier in 1964. 50 years later, we aim to do it again and make some history.
The Quest dragster will be powered by a 1500 amp array of lithium polymer batteries that will be built by High Tech Systems LLC. The battery package will develop an equivalent horsepower ratingof 2000HP! The Brad Hadman chassis is constructed similarly to a Top Fuel dragster and meets applicable professional drag racing safety criteria. Primary and associate opportunities are available. Merchandise availability is coming soon. The Quest for 200 MPH on Batteries Dragster will be display this Saturday, 1-2PM, in the west lot of:
Nostalgia Street Rods, 5365 Cameron Street, Las Vegas, NV 89118
Come out and see this beautiful speed machine up close and personal. Bring your cameras! Dragster owner Mike Gerry and I will be on hand to say hello and answer questions.
