Don “The Snake” Prudhomme reveals for the first time ever his incredible life and career on and off of the drag strip. He talks about how he met Tom McEwen and recall how they became the Snake and the Mongoose, leading to a career in Funny Cars that netted him four championships in a row. He also talks about the thrill of first wins and owning his own teams but also the struggles of bad seasons, crashes and fires, broken parts, and broken contracts. It not only racing, though. Prudhomme also shares lessons he learned about business and life from varied sources such as his family, a neighbor in Granada Hills to Ford GT40 driver Dan Gurney. This is a brand new book not used.
