Videos, Johnny Carson and other special moments captured on video



Thanking all my friends and fans that wished Midnight well when she was so sick, I’m convinced it helped her. I know it definitely helped me to cope and carry on. She was my little protector.

Awards, Honors and Milestones

In the World of Motor Sports, results are often all that matter. For Shirley Muldowney the dual desire to compete and win gave her the impetus to break through barriers – barriers of gender, barriers of pain and barriers of time itself – in the quest for successful results. For the better part of forty years, Shirley Muldowney has been an icon in the field of Motor Sports, and even in her 60’s she continues to hold her own against the best racers on the planet.

Growing up and living through her teen years in New York, Shirley discovered early she had a penchant for speed and competition. In fact she became somewhat of a notorious local street racer in the early days, but was quickly drawn to a growing form of auto competition called Drag Racing. Reportedly, it was so-named because competitors would “drag” out through each gearshift. Drag racing is done on a straight course (normally one quarter-mile) in pairs with the lower elapsed time from start to end measured in seconds determining the winner.

Are you ready for Season 5, Legends: The Series - The highly acclaimed internet-only documentary series launches Tuesday 2/5/19 featuring the highest profile female drag racer, who paved the way for women in the fuel ranks. Full version goes live at 8 PM, EST
