The Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing has named the 2018 inductees to the museum's International Drag Racing Hall of Fame on Thursday, March 15, in Gainesville, Florida, adding Jeb Allen, Kelly Brown, Gary Densham, Roy Fjastad, Jim Oddy, Ollie Riley and Greg Sharp to its roll call of honorees.

Both Allen and Brown are former NHRA Top Fuel champions while Densham has been competing in Funny Car competition since the early 1970s. Fjastad, who passed away earlier this month, was a prolific race car builder in the 1960s and ‘70s while Oddy is a legend among supercharged doorslammer racers. Sharp is the curator for the NHRA Motorsports Museum and Riley the genius behind the Chrondek timing system that was so important in drag racing’s infancy.

The Patricia Garlits Memorial Award, presented by Mopar and Don Garlits, went to the late Terry Chandler for her support of the Infinite Hero and Make-A-Wish Funny Car teams and drag racing in general.
