Always great seeing long-time Total Impact Wear customer BIG DADDY Don Garlits at the 2018 NHRA Gator Nationals in Gainsville FL. Total Impact Wear had an awesome time and attended the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame as sponsors and guests of BIG DADDY. We also checked out Don’s incredible Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing located nearby in Ocala, FL. So much cool stuff to see. BIG DADDY has accumulated a massive collection of classic cars and dragsters! His museum gift store is loaded with awesome cool looking merchandise including a large selection of Total Impact Wear tees. Thanks BIG DADDY for a super-duper time!

Total Impact Wear founder JK enjoying time with all-around good guy and 2016 NHRA Nitro Funny Car World Champion Ron Capps. Ron’s one of the nicest most approachable drivers in drag racing and ranks second in all-time Nitro Funny Car wins with 57 including his first NHRA title in 1995 (Seattle) driving a Top Fuel Dragster.
We love designing Ron’s tees for Total Impact Wear long time client Don Schumacher Racing.
Total Impact Wear enjoyed working with Team Kalitta and their apparel program. We love Connie and since the 1950’s, Connie has built Team Kalitta into one of the premier NHRA Drag Racing teams of all-time.
In 1992 Connie was inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America and in 2002, Connie was inducted into the International Drag Racing Hall of Fame. In 2016 Connie was honored at the season-ending NHRA Mello Yello Awards Ceremony with the NHRA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. This was the first time in NHRA history that this award has been given out.
Connie’s son Scott and Jim O’ were especially fun to work with and discuss new tee designs due to their hilarious Monty Python dry sense of humor that would literally crack us up. Scott liked his Total Impact Wear tees unique, majestic, and Over-The-Top awesome. We were more then happy to oblige and honored to be a sponsor on Scott’s Nitro Funny Car (2005-2008). ‘God Bless’ Scott. You were one of the best in NHRA Drag Racing and are very much missed.
