It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing of International Drag Racing Hall of Fame member and drag racing legend Tom "the Mongoose" McEwen. Tom passed away yesterday 06/10/18. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom's family and racing families.

Such a loss, such a great race car driver and a super personality. My first taste of the "Goose" is when he drove the Yeakel Plymouth Special at Lions. Then thru his other AA/FD's and all his Funny Cars. In my view his 3 biggest wins in no order was the Indy Nationals over the Snake. His huge win at the famed Bakersfield March Meet, and his historic win once again over the Snake at still my favorite race track, the "Last Drag Race" at Lions Drag Strip.

A real racer now with Jesus, rest in peace.

If you want to read a great bio on the Goose and some pics, on NHRA.Com is some really great stuff.
