Legends come to life
Motorcycles, yes. But Harley-Davidson is so much more. See how far our world reaches.
DRAG RACING: AMERICA’S FAST TIME
June 17 – September 5, 2016
Go under the hood with mind-blowing mad scientists of speed to see just how much blood, sweat and elbow grease hot rodders pour into their machines – two wheels or four – in their race against time.
Housed in The Garage, one of the Museum’s special event spaces, the exhibit will explore drag racing’s humble roots on the back roads and airport runways of post-World War II America to the raceways of today, where Top Fuel machines hit speeds in excess of 320 mph in a quarter-mile.
The exhibit will also explore how drag racing has permeated pop culture, weaving its way into movies, toys, and so much more as Americans’ fascination with speed has exploded. Storied gassers and hot rodders like Stone, Woods, and Cook’s Swindler B; Don Garlits’s Swamp Rat 13; and Chet Herbert’s Harley-Davidson, The Beast, will give race fans the chance to get up close and personal with these aces of asphalt. Artwork from legendary artists such as Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and Von Dutch will also grace The Garage walls.
