During the 1960s and 1970s, Don Nicholson was well known to racing fans all over the world. He was a pioneer drag racer whose career spanned six decades, becoming an icon in both funny cars and pro stock racing. He was a skilled and fast driver who earned many championship titles. Many fans admired his drag racing style.
In the mid 1960s, Nicholson would partner with Ford Motor Company and join the Mercury motor sports program with the “Eliminator” funny car powered by a Ford 427 SOHC cammer engine, one of the hottest engines Ford had to offer at the time.
