As I recall, he simply just power shifted his way into obscurity!!
They kinda left it open for a sequel, dont ya think??....however, its been almost 40 years, and we're tired of waiting!! :twisted: LOL.

Look at James Taylor back then with the long hair :shock: ...now he aint got any!!

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!

I went through Army Basic Training with a guy named Tom Green. In the movie, he played the gas station attendant in Oklahoma......because he actually WAS a gas station attendant in Oklahoma. I guess they didn't give him any lines to say because he was a gas station attendant in Oklahoma. Anyway, that's my only brush with greatness.

Did I mention that Tom was a gas station attendant in Oklahoma?

The older I get, the smarter Dad was.

Garage
There are some good interviews with the director on YouTube. I love the movie, but it seems like he's not too proud of it.

I think the film burning up is kind of a statement on how racing never ends.
