From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Speedway is a 1968 action film starring Elvis Presley as a racecar driver. Parts of the film were shot at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina and features the guest appearances of several of the top NASCAR drivers of the day.
Elvis burns up the tracks with Nancy Sinatra. She plays an Internal Revenue Service Investigator, who catches up with Elvis about his unpaid taxes. Bill Bixby plays Elvis’ somewhat shady manager. With two great singers like Elvis and Nancy, the plot takes a back seat to the great singing and dancing in the movie.
