Inducted into the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame in 2007
HolbenDonHead72 Don Holben was born in Lansing, Michigan in 1950, and has lived in Grand Ledge for a great number of years. Don's first exposure to drag racing was in 1963 when he attended a drag race at the now-defunct Onondaga Dragway. By 1966 at age 16, Don started to regularly attend the drags by crewing for Al Moon, who raced a Modified Production Chevy Nova.
...
Don, while still helping Al Moon, also attended his first National Event that year, the AHRA Grand Nationals at Detroit Dragway, and certainly became more hooked on drag racing, seeing it at the professional level.
...
That same year, Don graduated from Grand Ledge High and also went to US 131 Dragway to see some Funny Car shows. These continued "dosages " of drag racing exposure drove a young Don to want to obtain his own Stock class car. By 1971, Don bought a 1969 Chevelle to race in Pure Stock, winning his class title at local tracks often, and even managing an overall eliminator runner-up once in this first season competing as a driver.
HolbenDon72 In '72, Don built another Chevy combination for Stock, a '66 Bel-Air 283, it being by Don's own admission, an eminently forgettable effort. 1974. The mentor-student relationship began with Dick Griffin, and with Don racing a brand new 455 Cutlass wagon Stocker that season, Don won the US 131 Popular Hot Rodding Magazine Nationals Warm-Up Meet, his first major win.

In 1996, Don obtained a new LT1 Firebird and has worked with and raced this car to the present, with friend and fellow racer Tony Goodman also driving the car.

Don has also driven a '69 Camaro stocker owned by Holland's Phil Veldheer.

Don Holben has had a drag racing career that most would covet, and there is even more to Don's career that is in excess of the space allowed here. Don is quick to thank those who have helped, influenced, inspired, and supported him over the years.
