Gulfstream gives away Drag-U-La

 Gulfstream Park Casino will give away a $75,000 DRAG-U-LA -- they're calling it "the world's 'deadliest' dragster" - on Oct. 30.

            The original DRAG-U-LA dragster was built from a fiberglass coffin and made famous in the 1960s on The Munsters television show, Gulfstream officials say. The DRAG-U-LA being given away by Gulfstream is on the first floor in the Fountain Club.

            Patrons can start accumulating  entries to win the DRAG-U-LA now  and can also have their pictures taken with characters dressed as The Munsters from 5-9 p.m. Oct. 11, 18 and 25.

            The DRAG-U-LA remains popular today in part due to musician Rob Zombie, who named a song Dragula, the title coming from The Munsters show featuring the dragster. The song was later in the film The Matrix and is on the soundtrack of the video game Twisted Metal 4.
