"Snake & Mongoo$e," the incredible true story of the greatest rivalry and friendship in drag racing history, pits Don "The Snake" Prudhomme (Jesse Williams of "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "Grey's Anatomy") against his longtime friend and on-track nemesis, Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen (Richard Blake of Dragonball: Evolution).
From the fiery days of the early dragstrips through the explosive peak of their popularity, these are the triumphs and tragedies behind the legendary races and the Hot Wheels partnership that created a global phenomenon and changed motorsports forever.
Featuring a soundtrack that includes some of the most notable artists and anthems of the time, including Elvis Presley's "Spinout", ZZ Top's "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide," and Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper", "Snake & Mongoo$e" perfectly captures an iconic era while dropping viewers into the heart of the 1960s and 1970s.
Giants like 16x NHRA Funny Car Champion and Racer.com's Racer of the Year, John Force said about the film - “It’s not just their story, it’s all our stories.” Car aficionado and International Hall of Fame Inductee Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top said, “It’s one of the most authentic and moving – in every sense of the word – racing films ever made.” Moviereporter.com said “It’s more than a racing movie.”
In addition to edge-of-your-seat racing thrills, Snake and Mongoo$e touches on the inspirational and heartwarming tale of how Prudhomme’s and McEwen’s wives and children were affected by their struggles and successes.
