For 35 years (Innovator™ Designer) Joe Adams worked to complete a promise to his friend Don Garlits. Over this time he became a digital designer for The Don Garlits Museum Of Drag Racing & The International Drag Racing Hall Of Fame. It's because of this work, Adams would go on to become friends with his favorite motorsports artist, the legendary Kenny Youngblood.

 

Below are a couple of the race trailer designs, aside from countless digital art pieces and photography done for the Garlits Museums as well as the digital design package on Swamp Rat XXXVI done by Adams.

For 30 years I have worked with and worked for Big Daddy and his family and the betterment of The Garlits Museum Of Drag Racing as an inventor, digital designer, photographer and webmaster. He was my hero from 7 years old when I first saw him at Utica Rome Speedway. Now, my invention Adamstand™ has been used in the shop by Don with one of my original prototypes now on display at his museum for almost three decades. This video to the left is the finest I have ever seen online about Don.  I'm proud to say you can actually see me at work, shooting some photos in front of one of the trailer wraps I designed at minute (9:30) in the web film above. Don and myself pictured visiting on the electric car's debut. He was so happy racing. To be allowed to design Swamp Rat 36 was a an honor and gift from Don that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Click on the link above to check out the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing. A museum you must visit on your next trip to Florida.
