Remembering Bob Glidden
ZMAX Dragway will pay tribute to late Hall of Fame NHRA Pro Stock driver Bob Glidden by displaying two of his famed Ford Fairmont machines together for the first time - his 1979 undefeated powerhouse, which remains the only undefeated car in all of NHRA drag racing, and his 1980 championship car. Glidden won 85 events and 10 season championships over his 25-year Pro Stock career. Fans can visit these iconic machines behind the John Force grandstands in Nitro Alley
