The true life story of Wendell Scott, the first black stock car racing driver to win an upper tier NASCAR race.
Melvin Van Peebles was originally scheduled to direct the film, but he exited because of "artistic differences", and was replaced by Michael Schultz.
What'chyou looking for, Wendell?
Wendell Scott: Some of this, some of that, some of everything. A universal joint.
Peewee: Hmph. I wouldn't know a universal joint if it bit me.
Wendell Scott: Well, one's about to bite you.
In many of the in-car shots during the races you can hear that they are manual transmissions being double clutched, but the drivers never take their hands of the wheel to shift.
