Dick Brannan Ford drag racing

Do you remember your first car?

Hall of Fame Drag Racer Dick Brannan remembers his. It was a '32' Ford 500 Coupe and it didn't even run, but that didn't stop this young man from Indiana from changing American motorsport history. Narrated by Emmy winner Peter Coyote, this half hour film tells how an underdog, with a little bit of help, reinvented one of America's most iconic brands at the drag strip. The film makes its broadcast Premiere in January on PBS stations covering the Chicago, Illinois and South Bend, Indiana regions. The project will be distributed nationally through American Public Television beginning in May 2019.
