Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen, one of the iconic figures in drag racing history, died June 10. He was 81.

McEwen, voted No. 16 on NHRA’s Top 50 Drivers lists in 2001, competed in both Funny Car and Top Fuel, and although he wasn’t one of drag racing’s most prolific winners, he certainly was one of its most colorful.

Nicknamed “the Mongoose” in 1964, largely as a device to entice Don “The Snake” Prudhomme into a high-exposure match race, McEwen won only five NHRA national events during his 35-plus-year career, but his gift for gab and promotional ability made him one of the sport’s most influential and controversial figures.
