There is a lot more to Stevie “Fast” Jackson, than most people realize. I readily admit, that while I liked Stevie the first time I met him, I didn’t have a clue as to just how talented, smart, and in tune he is. I’ve gotten to know him over the years, working on some projects, and seeing him at the races, and I can tell you that this cat is sharp. There are two sides to Stevie. One is the loud mouth, smack talking, fun and obnoxious Stevie that got everyone’s attention and held it all these years. The other is a very articulate, talented, smart, inquisitive, and professional racer who knows how to drive, tune, and make things happen. His biggest strength lies in knowing which Stevie to be when, and how intense to be. Keep in mind, he doesn’t know how to turn the intensity off entirely, but he’s pretty good about keeping it in check. Most of the time.
At the recent SCSN in St. Louis, Stevie made his funny car debut. You have to watch the video to get his take on how it was, what it is like, and how it is different from the Pro Mod and Radial cars he drives currently. Watch and enjoy.
