In as much as actor Morgan Freeman's voice epitomizes the perceived voice of God, there's no perceiving when it comes to the voice of drag racing.

Louis usually did all of the driving pulling their Chaparral trailer, but on the cross-country return home; the eldest of the siblings made the unwise decision to hand over the driving chores to John somewhere in Texas so he could grab some sleep.
