"If you're a racer, a race fan, a hot rodder, a businessman...heck, just about anybody who loves going fast will enjoy "Fast Company." Speedy Bill Smith is an icon in both auto racing and the world of automotive performance, and now he opens up to share the many great stories and experiences of his amazing, unlikely life. He survived a couple of near-death experiences (literally), parlayed $300 into a performance empire, chased race cars and hot rods from coast-to-coast, rubbing shoulders with countless characters and rascals over the past 60 years. This is an American success story...a little off-color, a little politically-incorrect, and a little over the top. As a car owner, Speedy Bill raced to win, and didn't mind if he got under the skin of his competitors...in fact, he LOVED getting them fired up. Along the way he won too many races to count, made a ton of friends (and maybe just a few who weren't so friendly), and rewrote the record books on many occasions."
