Don Prudhomme says "I Quit" vs. Jim Nicoll in 1970
One of the most dramatic moments of the U.S. Nationals came in 1970 when Jim Nicoll's clutch gave out causing his car to split in half and spin out of control in front of Don Prudhomme who was racing in the opposite lane. Here's the moment that Don got out of the car and wanted to quit drag racing forever. We will look back at this memorable moment and more at this year's 60th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals. For ticket information click here:
