Ever seen a fire burnout? Here "Big Daddy" Don Garlits and his long time sidekick T.C. Lemmons show you how to do a fire burnout at Lakeland, Florida back in the early 1970's. Outlawed many moons ago, fire burnouts were always fun to watch from a safe distance!! Garlits is without a doubt the "Babe Ruth" of drag racing, and now days he runs his Museum of Drag Racing in Ocala, Florida just off I-75.
