Bakersfield, Calif. --

Swamp Rat 1B
Don Garlits is returning to Bakersfield this spring. The winningest top fuel racer in March Meet history, "Big Daddy" will be honored by the Goodguys Vintage Drag Racing Association as the official "Hot Rod Hero" of the 47th March Meet presented Clay Smith Cams. The three-day event, scheduled for March 10-12 will envelope Auto Club Famoso Raceway, just north of Bakersfield for three days of all out vintage drag racing and hot rodding fun. The event serves as the first stop of the 5-race 2006 Goodguys West Coast Championship Series.

Garlits, winner of five March Meet top fuel titles during his historic career, will be on hand all three days signing autographs for fans, selling merchandise and will even make an exhibition run or two behind the wheel of his restored "Swamp Rat 1B" blown fuel Chrysler powered dragster. Garlits' wife Pat and longtime friend and crewman "T.C" Lemmons will attend the event as well.

The 47th March Meet will feature over 500 1972 & earlier race cars competing in 14 classes highlighted by front engined top fuel dragsters and nostalgia funny cars. The event will also feature a rod & custom show & shine, a giant manufacturer's midway, exhibition vehicles, and an automotive and racing swap meet.
