|Draggin' Into The 1970's : Volume 3
|1970 U.S. Nationals - Indianapolis, IN - (38 min)
An original special for ABC's Wide World Of Sports, this 1970 film follows Don Prudhomme during the U.S.
Nationals in Indianapolis, IN. Lots of great footage in this one! Prudhomme, in what would be his final year
running a front-engined Top Fuel dragster, faces Jim Nichols in the final round. As they cross the finish line
(Prudhomme wins), Nichol's dragster explodes, and the dragster in half. His roll cage, with parachute attached,
flies off to the side of the track, while the rest of the chassis, with engine still attached, spins like a pinwheel in
front of a horrified Don Prudhomme. Visibly shaken by what he just witnessed, upon exiting his dragster,
ABC-TV is there for an interview, but Prudhomme is speechless, believing that Nichol's was killed in the
accident (he was ok). This excellent film also covers some other classes at the U.S. Nationals,
but the focus is on Prudhomme. (Condition - VG+)
1971 "Once Upon A Wheel" - Documentary - (24 min)
A series produced for network TV, this installment was called "Match Race", and covers the newly formed
Hot Wheels team of Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen. This is an excellent
film for those interested in the two famous Hot Wheels funny cars. (Condition - VG+ to Excellent)
1974 U.S. Nationals - Indianapolis, IN - (34 min)
Another excellent ABC Wide World Of Sports presentation, we see Marvin Graham win Top Fuel,
Don Prudhomme wins funny car, and Bob Glidden wins Pro Stock. Great interviews along the way,
and a truly memorable piece of 1970's drag racing. (Condition - Excellent)
1975 U.S. Nationals - Indianapolis, IN - (40 min)
ABC Wide World Of Sports coverage of the 1975 U.S. Nationals. The focus is on the Don Garlits vs. Shirley
Muldowney rivalry, and they do not disappoint, as they meet up in the final round. Great interviews with
both Garlits and Muldowney along the way, along with a decidedly hippie-looking Gary Beck. In funny car,
Raymond Beadle and the Blue Max pull off the upset of the event by defeating Don Prudhomme. Some very
rare interviews in this one, as ABC-TV wanted more from their broadcast than just drag racing. They speak to
Pat Garlits, Ray Beadle, and many others that seldom received any camera time. In Pro Stock, the 4-door
Gapp & Roush Maverick defeats Richie Zul. (Condition - Excellent)
