'Big Daddy' wants the record again!

Legendary Don 'Big Daddy' Garlits set the first 200mph in the quarter-mile more than fifty years ago, now the 82 year old drag strip legend wants to also own the first 200 mph 1/4 mile record in an EV! His race car named 'Swamp Rat 37' has an awesome 1500 kW lithium-ion battery array. Will miss that supercharger whine, nitrous revs, throaty air ingestion and blow torch exhausts. We'll still have the burnouts but just don't blow those fuses, Don!
