Allen Platt is the son of drag racing legend Hubert Platt. Allen spent the first 14 years of his life traveling the country going to drag races coast to coast with his father. In the early nineties, some 15 years after Hubert's retirement from racing, Hubert and Allen started their mission of keeping drag racing history alive, traveling to nostalgic drag races and car shows around the country. They continued this until Hubert's passing in September 2015. Allen still has the same passion and carries on his father's legacy, racing a tribute replica of Hubert's most iconic ride, the "Georgia Shaker III" A/FX Ford Falcon, at nostalgic drag racing events today.
