The British Drag Racing Hall of Fame has announced it has nominated The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing to be honored with the “Museum Collection of the Year Award.” The Museum Collection of the Year Award is connected to the International Historic Motoring Awards, a prestigious automotive event which honors a number of individuals and groups each year for contributions and achievements in several categories. The winners will be honored at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London, England on November 20, 2014.
Brian Taylor, spokesman for the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame observed, “The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing has long been a destination for drag racing fans, worldwide. Don’s contribution to the preservation of historic drag racing vehicles, and not merely his own, as well as uniforms, helmets and other memorabilia is a major reason why the British Drag Racing Hall of Fame chose to nominate the museum for this honor.”
He adds, “Because of the way the International Historic Motoring Awards process is structured, each ‘nomination’ is considered a ‘vote’ for that particular museum. The nominations are eventually reviewed, and the museums with the largest number of nominations are selected to go into the ‘Short List’ of six to determine the museum which receives the Museum Collection of the Year Award. The final selection is made by a panel of judges.
“We would hope the drag racers and fans in North America would go to the International Historic Motoring Awards website (http://www.historicmotoringawards.com/categories.php?view=1) and fill out the form to ‘nominate’ Don’s museum. The nomination process is the key to making the ‘short list’ for consideration. It is important to note, that being ‘short listed’ is considered to be a major honor by itself.”
