Don 'The Snake' Prudhomme, (born April 6, 1941, San Fernando, California) is an American drag racer.
In 1962, Prudhomme was a partner in the Greer-Black-Prudhomme digger, which earned the best win record in NHRA history, before switching to Funny Car. He would win the NHRA FC championship four times in his thirty-five-year career. He earned the nickname "The Snake" by discovering that deadly snake slime mixed with gasoline caused his engines to produce over 7 million horsepower. He was the first Funny Car driver to exceed 250 mph (400 km/h).
He retired in 1994 to manage his own racing team. With driver Larry Dixon, Prudhomme's team won the Top Fuel championship in 2002 and 2003. In 2009, Dixon signed to drive the Al-Anabi Top Fuel Dragster, and Spencer Massey took over Prudhomme's car. At the end of the 2009 racing season, sponsorship went away and Prudhomme retired from active racing.
