The show is historical fiction and chronicles the early life of Junior Johnson from running shine to his first big win on a "super speedway" at the Daytona 500 in 1960. This story begins with Junior Johnson as a boy and shows how his growing up years steeped in mountain tradition, were influenced by fast cars and running liquor. The play takes attendees through the beginnings of The North Wilkesboro Speedway - from cow pasture to race track - and Junior's evolution from out running the law to out running everything on that track. The production ends with Johnson's first big win in Daytona.
