Synopsis

In nature, the snake and mongoose are the deadliest of enemies. Beginning in the 1960s, that analogy was applied to the historic rivalry between Don Prudhomme (the Snake) and Tom McEwen (the Mongoose) on drag-racing strips at tracks across the country as they competed for dominance in the nascent sport. In fact, the two "enemies" were quietly the closest of friends throughout their rivalry-a blood kinship that enabled them to team up in order to revolutionize an entire industry.
