Yea -- What a Bummer. Sad I was not a big fan of Stroker Ace, ( anyone who had read the book Stand On It, on which the movie is " based ", might wonder what movie they're watching ), however it is a nice time capsule of 1982 NASCAR Cup racing. I actually preferred Burt's roles in The Longest Yard and Hooper -- World's Greatest Stuntman; the latter was a great tribute to The Hollywood Stuntman -- BEFORE CGI took over the dirty work. Rolling Eyes
Burt and Hal Needham did form one of the first NASCAR Super Teams with their Mach One Racing, and they, along with Harry Gant and The Skoal Bandit became an iconic NASCAR team for years. RIP Burt...

Jerry Reed said it best

"Bandit"

They call you the bandit an outlaw untamed
Shackled only by freedom you wear no man's chain
Some say they despise you well maybe they do
But deep down inside them I bet they wish they were you

Bandit you're reckless and you live much too hard
Bandit you're the joker in the deal of the cards
You're a legend to the old man a hero to the child
Bandit steal a lady's heart with only a smile


At some point in time, I think we all wanted to be the Bandit.
