#LEGENDStheSERIES PREVIEW - THE LEGEND OF MIKE DUNN

 

Are you ready for Season 6 of the highly acclaimed internet documentary series focusing on the legends of the drag strip?

Mike Dunn was absolutely correct in his assessment that many expected him to automatically graduate into the fuel racing ranks just because of his status as Jim Dunn's son. He did make his way into the fuel ranks but did so because he worked his way up from crewman to driver. The road was filled with bumps and bruises, but one which led to a career where he admittedly never spent a dime of his own money to participate.

This preview provides a glimpse of what is to come on April 16, 2020, at 8 PM, EST., when the new season debuts.

CLASSIC VIDEO - LIFE IN THE QUICK LANE

This documentary is the perfect way to spend your time, thinking back to the days of yesteryear when drag racing had the wow power because it was still a virtually unknown commodity.

The legends were very much involved in 1979, from Don Prudhomme to Don Garlits to Shirley Muldowney. Drag racing was still wide enough open to command an audience for such a documentary which would usually air in the afternoons on weekend when three channel, black and white television were still in the majority.

This video has a little bit of everything from NHRA to AHRA, Top Fuel to Funny Car to Pro Stock. If you can excuse the audio sounds of big block automatic cars on obvious four-speed Modifieds, you will enjoy this class.

After a brief rasslin' match with COVID19 and producer Bobby Bennett, we are back in production with another entertaining episode of the #RONCAPPSEXPERIENCE, the popular series born out of a torched race hauler and boredom.
