Learn more about funny car racing and the famous Don Prudhomme. Get the book of the month, hit your arm chair and sign up for the book club meeting on Zoom to get to know your fellow members and discuss a good book.
Meetings will be at 7 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
Our second book of the season is Six Seconds to Glory: Don “the Snake” Prudhomme’s Hair-Raising 1973 Funny Car Race by Hal Higdon.
The early career of Don Prudhomme is captured in this spine-tingling account of the 1973 Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park. Master writer Hal Higdon spent the race weekend shadowing Prudhomme during a race that was the turning point in The Snake’s dominating Funny Car racing career.
Higdon captured the weekend drama minute-by-minute as The Snake fights for a chance to make history. The account includes Prudhomme’s relationship with Tom Mongoonse McEwen and the infamous Snake versus Mongoose rivalry that made both men’s careers.
