They call him Fast Freddie

Freddie Spencer was so precociously gifted as a racer that by age 19 he had several film crews following his every move as he dominated the AMA's fledgling Superbike class. The combined footage is an incredible time capsule of American racing seen through the perspective of the mild-mannered Louisianan, crammed with interviews and fantastic battles with past giants like Wes Cooley and Eddie Lawson throughout the '81 season. The crowning jewel is the completely epic 1982 Daytona 200 F1 race, Spencer's first race on Honda's legendary V4 FWS1000 battling corner to corner against Kenny Roberts on Yamaha's prototype square-four YZR500 OW54. Spencer, teammate Baldwin and Roberts were so fast they hit backmarkers by the second lap.
