Yes, they did.
But someone there has had it in for Garlits for years.
Hell, wasn't he not even mentioned in the NHRA First 50 Years book.
Or something like that.
Maybe it was when he had those PRO races way back....that he upset someone.
I think it's great, 87 years old and still trying to set new milestones.
Though Karamesines is pretty amazing too. Last age I heard mentioned for The Greek on NHRA TV show was 88.
Ironically considering what Garlits is trying to accomplish today, many credit Karamesines with the first 200 mph run.
