  • The lines about Dale Jarrett throwing his helmet were based in fact. I don't remember the details, but he had recently thrown his helmet at another driver that had caused him to wreck. (knowtalentagency)
  • This song is now showing its age, since they are now running Toyotas in NASCAR. And it's no longer called the Winston Cup ... it's the Nextel Cup. (knowtalentagency)
  • I really wasn't a NASCAR fan when I wrote this song, and I still am not. But I was trying to get on the locally-produced John-Boy & Billy Show again, and they talked about NASCAR quite often. But they never played this song. (However, they did play quite a few of my other songs ... all before they went into syndication.) (knowtalentagency)
  • Song Lyrics:
    When I was a kid, instead of riding my bike,
    Or finding a girl to chase her,
    I'd always turn on the TV set
    And watch an episode of Speed Racer.
    I'd dunk my cookies in my milk
    And stare in fascination.
    Speed Racer was a real hero
    In cheap Japanese animation.

    So you can imagine my surprise
    One day at the Charlotte track,
    When a real short tractor trailer pulled up
    And rolled a little car off the racks.
    A short little fellow climbed in the car
    And fired that mother up.
    Speed Racer had come to Charlotte,
    And he was gonna run Winston Cup.

    He drove the Panasonic Daihatsu.
    He qualified at two-hundred-forty-fo' ...
    'Cause a cartoon car can do anything.
    (And the kids all yelled) Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, Go!

    When the race got started
    Speed Racer was relieved,
    'Cause all week, the other drivers
    Had been acting really peeved.
    Dale Earnhardt gave him an icy stare.
    Kyle Petty told him where to go.
    And Speed Racer had to duck one time
    From a Dale Jarrett helmet throw.

    Speed Racer started from the pole,
    And soon had lapped them all.
    The turbulence he created
    Sent Jeff Gordon into the wall.
    He gritted his teeth and drove his Daihatsu
    At a record pace.
    He left Rusty Wallace and Brett Bodine
    Racing for second place.

    He drove the Panasonic Daihatsu.
    And he never ever even had to pit,
    'Cause a cartoon car can do anything.
    (And all the other drivers yelled) "Oh ... dad-gum-it!"

    With 600 miles completed,
    Speed Racer took the checkered flag.
    The fans in the stands were cheering,
    But the drivers felt it was a drag.
    Dale Jarrett threw his helmet again,
    But fortunately it missed.
    Ford, Chevy and Pontiac drivers ...
    All of them were ... upset.

    Suddenly the crowd parted --
    There was Rusty Wallace with a grin.
    NASCAR officials had made a ruling,
    And took away Speed Racer's win.
    There was a post-race inspection,
    And the car didn't make it through.
    NASCAR didn't have a template
    To fit the Panasonic Daihatsu.

    He drove the Panasonic Daihatsu,
    And he led the race for all of the laps.
    But you can't win a Winston Cup race
    If your car was manufactured by the Japs!
