Just in case you have been living under a rock, there is a new movie about drag racing coming out. It is called Snake and Mongoose. It is about the drag racing duo in the 70’s and how they changed drag racing by bringing in Hot Wheels as a major sponsor. I like the fact that it looks like it has some nice vintage drag racing footage in it. Here is the press release type blurb for it:
One of the greatest drag racing rivalries in sports history is the story of Don ‘The Snake’ Prudhomme and Tom ‘The Mongoose’ McEwen. Coming September 6th, 2013 the story of their rivalry hits theaters. The Snake & Mongoose Movie shares the inspiring tale of the two revolutionary men who’s battle on the track stood in stark contrast to the deep and profound excitement of the friendship created from this rivalry. The Snake & Mongoose Movie shares the story of the colorful characters surrounding the legendary races and the rivalry that defined the times. Executive producer Elliott Broidy hopes drag racing and car enthusiasts thoroughly enjoy the film’s story on the history of the two racers and their ground breaking accomplishments in the world of entertainment sports marketing and sponsorship.
Any of you out there looking forward to seeing it?
