Snake and Mongoose
This underrated movie is an interesting and wonderfully presented story about the greatest rivalry and friendship in drag racing history between Don “The Snake” Prudhomme and Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen. Those guys didn’t just create the sport – they also expanded it far beyond what it was in the late 60’s.
The movie is a great reminder of how intense and real the original drag racing scene was back in the days. The director included a lot of original footage and even a cameo appearance by Don “The Snake” Prudhomme.
