Fashion: Moonshine and Fast Cars

10:50:00 AM




Today’s NASCAR is a family sport with 75 million loyal fans, growing bigger and more mainstream by the day. Part Disney, part Vegas, part Barnum & Bailey, NASCAR is also a multi-billion dollar business and a cultural phenomenon that transcends geography, class, and gender. But dark secrets lurk in NASCAR’s past.

The book Driving with the Devil uncovers for the first time the true story behind NASCAR’s distant, moonshine-fueled origins and paints a rich portrait of the colorful men who created it. Long before the sport of stock-car racing even existed, young men in the rural, Depression-wracked South had figured out that cars and speed were tickets to a better life. With few options beyond the farm or factory, the best chance of escape was running moonshine. Bootlegging offered speed, adventure and wads of cash – if they survived. Driving with the Devil is the story of bootleggers whose empires grew during Prohibition and continued to thrive well after Repeal, and of drivers who thundered down dusty back roads with a car full of corn liquor, deftly out-running federal revenuers. The vehicle of choice was the Ford V-8, the hottest car of the 1930s, and ace mechanics tinkered with them until they could fly across mountain roads at 100 miles an hour.
M&P Speed Apparel is proud to be the only licensed apparel manufacturer for Driving with the Devil, working with the original families permission we have created a collection of tees that focuses on fast cars, moonshine, and the men that lived it. In conjunction with the release of the audio book that is read by NASCAR historian Buz Mckim and the song by country music stars Brasher/Bogue, M&P is is releasing the first series of Drive with the Devil premium tee shirts, featuring classic style, bold colors, and details like hand printed Drive with the Devil patches on the hip.
