About TexasDon’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
I have been involved in Drag Racing since High School (1960) Have had MANY cars over the years. Wish I had kept more pics! I am sad that I have been forced to retire from drag racing due to health. I had a great 53 years on the tracks across the country, but am now looking forward to touring same country in my 82 Vette!
My thanks to my Mother, Marie..8/23/16 - 6/21/08 for her understanding and support of my racing addiction over the past 50yrs. She was was an avid John & Ashley Force fan and supporter, and also a great fan of my NASCAR buddy Carl Edwards. She will be missed both at home & at the track!
