Tall Tales

Caractacus Potts, IV | Tall Tale

At last, everything made sense. Future NASCAR driver Caractacus Potts, IV, finally understood his legacy and it wasn’t anything like his mother said. Despite living on a car-free island; despite heavy use of the parental TV chip to cut any idea or hint of racing; despite her long crying jags over the crash that took his father. Despite it all, one sleepover at a hot wheel enthusiast’s house set his feet on the path that would rule his life. It wasn’t anything he could help. It just was.
