NHRA legend Tom 'The Mongoose' McEwen dead at 81
Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen, who was voted No. 16 on the NHRA's Top 50 Drivers list in 2001, died on June 10. He was 81. Nicknamed The Mongoose in 1964, as part of a campaign to reel rival Don "The Snake" Prudhomme into a high-exposure match race, McEwen won five NHRA national events during his 35-plus-year career that included time in Funny Cars and Top Fuel dragsters.
