Racing and movie enthusiasts have been anxiously awaiting the nationwide release of the feature film “Snake & Mongoo$e”. The film, which had a limited release in 20 cities in the summer and fall of 2013, will be available for digital download on as well as On Demand by select cable providers on March 4th. It will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on April 8 through major retailers.

Premiering in select theaters, with a series of star-studded events that crossed the nation and included stops in Reno, Detroit, Indianapolis and Los Angeles, the turbocharged film riveted audiences with an eye-opening look at the birth of drag racing’s popularity and the partnership with Mattel that launched a phenomenon.

“Snake & Mongoo$e” continued to leave its mark on today’s automotive world when it was screened at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January, becoming the first film ever screened in the legendary automotive event’s 43 year history.

“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-the-track nemesis Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen (Richard Blake of Dragonball: Evolution). From the fiery days of early speedways through the explosive peak of their popularity, these are the triumphs and tragedies behind the legendary races and Hot Wheels partnership that created a global phenomenon. Ashley Hinshaw (CHRONICLE), Kim Shaw (She’s Out of My League), Fred Dryer (“Hunter”), Ian Ziering (SHARKNADO), Tim Blake Nelson (O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?) and Noah Wyle (“ER,” “Falling Skies”) co-star in this nitro-burning drama of the two men who battled business and each other to change motorsports forever.

Featuring a soundtrack that includes some of the most notable artists and anthems of the time, including Elvis Presley’s “Spinout”, “Snake & Mongoo$e” perfectly captures an iconic era while dropping viewers into the heart of the 1960s and 1970s.

Don Garlits “Rat Roast” DVD now available

Parma Heights, Ohio (April 16, 2012) – The Don Garlits “Rat Roast” DVD will begin shipping on April 20, 2012. The DVD video, recorded on February 11, 2012 at the Sheraton Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., captures the magical evening when seven of Don Garlits’ pals from his illustrious 62 year racing career roasted and toasted “Big Daddy” to celebrate his 80th birthday before a sell-out crowd.

Produced by the Quarter Mile Foundation, the DVD covers over 120 minutes of the event which opens with Linda Vaughn (as Marilyn Monroe) singing a sultry “Happy Birthday” to Don, followed by opening remarks from NHRA President Tom Compton. Then fun began as Master of Ceremonies Bob Frey played “Ring Master” over Jerry (The King) Ruth, Ed (The Master) Pink, Tommy (TV Tommy) Ivo, Dave (Big Mac) McClelland, Ed (The Camfather) Iskenderian, Sid Waterman and Don (The Snake) Prudhomme, plus Garlits.

“We feel the DVD of the ‘Rat Roast’ captures the flavor of that magical evening,” states Quarter Mile Foundation chairman, Traci Hrudka. “While we underestimated the length of time it took to edit the materials from the event, we found some old footage of Big Daddy that has not been seen before and will certainly add to the entertainment. We feel the end results justified the wait.

“This DVD will be played many times, and the funny stories and the antics of the panel will keep you laughing over and over. This is a DVD every serious drag racing fan must have in their collection.”

The “Rat Roast” DVD is available for $20.00 (US), plus shipping and handling, from the Quarter Mile Foundation website – www.project1320.com. The DVD can also be purchased at the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing and its website (www.garlits.com).
