Ricky Bobby is a legend. He’s one of the all-time greats behind the wheel of a car. The driving work, you know. His achievements are immortal. But were you aware this his driving skills were also put to the test in France?
Mr. Bobby was part of the team tasked with the singular goal of taking down a motorsports giant. Enzo Ferrari and his red racers dominated endurance racing. Ford wanted to change that. So the Blue Oval turned to Carroll Shelby for help. The rest, as they say, his motorsports history.
Or we wish it was, because it would be hilarious. Now we can pretend that’s the way the story goes thanks to the folks at Funny or Die.
